news Windows 10 will soon include ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ kaomoji support

Recommended Posts


Microsoft is making it easier for you to send ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ or (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ kaomoji from a Windows 10 PC to friends or coworkers. In a new test build of Windows 10 (Please login or register to see this link. ), Microsoft has added kaomoji face characters that are accessible through the same existing emoji shortcut (win+period). While you’ll be able to pick from a number of kaomoji, the feature will also include quick access to em dash and other symbols. If you’re a writer, you already know how difficult it is to remember the alt key codes for the em dash, so this will certainly simplify things. Microsoft is planning to introduce this with its codename 19H1 update, expected to arrive in March or April 2019.

Alongside the kaomoji additions, Microsoft is also testing a new simplified Start layout. This new layout is designed for new devices, new accounts, or clean installs of the operating system, and it includes a single column of pre-installed apps. Microsoft is also updating the look of the clipboard history feature, making its UI a little more compact.


Microsoft is also starting to test its new Windows Sandbox feature. Please login or register to see this link. without having to launch a virtual machine. Microsoft has developed a simple way for anyone running Windows 10 to launch apps in an isolated desktop environment, and once you’ve finished running the app in this mode the entire sandbox is deleted. Windows 10 testers can now try this out with today’s build.



Elsewhere, Microsoft is also introducing more shadows across its Fluent Design UI and tweaking the main settings page to include frequently used settings. Settings now has a header that includes quick access to Windows Update and Microsoft Account information. Other smaller tweaks include a new “friendly dates” option for File Explorer and the ability to set a default task manager tab. Microsoft is also introducing a new Office app for Windows 10 that’s designed to be a central place for launching Office apps and seeing recent documents.

      Ubisoft's online shooter sequel The Division 2 is mere days away from its March 15th launch now, but PS4 owners might want to prepare themselves for a bit of an extended wait before play can commence; the game's day one update on PS4 will weigh in at a mammoth 90GB.
      That's according to a new Please login or register to see this link. (as spotted by Please login or register to see this link. ) in which Ubisoft warns PS4 players who've opted to purchase The Division 2's physical edition that they should expect an 88-92GB download on launch day. "If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin installing from the disc," it explains. "Provided you are online, your console will simultaneously download Title Update 1 while you install it."
      Ubisoft also notes that the the final HDD install size on PS4 will be between 88-92GB, for both the digital and disc versions. In other words, it sounds like physical owners are essentially being asked to download the entire game from scratch when release day comes.
      It's obviously a whopper of a download (even Please login or register to see this link. , one of the larger in recent memory, looks positively dainty in comparison) although it's not entirely clear why. According to Ubisoft's same support page, Xbox One and PC players should "expect a 48-52GB download" on launch day, meaning that the PlayStation 4 update is, for some reason, almost twice the size of other versions.
      All of which is to say that you probably shouldn't bank on playing The Division 2 soon after launch if you've plumped for the physical release, regardless of platform. And if you're on PlayStation 4, you'll have plenty of time to, say, read a book or learn a language or transcend entirely to another plane, while you wait for your download to complete.

      Google’s Threat Analysis group has Please login or register to see this link. affecting Google Chrome and Windows 7 PCs yesterday (via Please login or register to see this link. ).

      As for the Windows 7 vulnerability, Google says that it already reported it to Microsoft but had to reveal it yesterday after the end of its to a 90-day disclosure deadline. The Redmond giant is said to already be working on a fix, but according to Google this vulnerability is already being exploited in targeted attacks.
      As Microsoft has yet to announce when it will fix this vulnerability, Google is recommending Windows 7 users to upgrade their PCs to Windows 10. Microsoft announced yesterday that the new OS is now running on 800 million devices worldwide, but 43.93% of Windows users were still using Windows 7 in March according to Please login or register to see this link. .
      MY NOTE: Just because this is currently only being used against 32 bit versions of Windows 7 does not mean that the 64 bit version is safe. No where does anyone mention that windows 7 64bit is safe either. Just that it is has not being exploited on the 64bit version yet. It's just a matter of time. Microsoft has not even announced a fix yet.  PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD UPDATE TO WINDOWS 10. ITS FREE.

      Last month, Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Matt Walker said how they would "love" to see the popular hack and slash series on the Nintendo Switch.
      Now, in a recent interview with German magazine M!, Itsuno said the latest game in the Devil May Cry series would be considered for the Switch if Capcom's April release Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen "sells well" on the platform. Below is the translation:
      As for why Devil May Cry 5 wasn't announced for Nintendo's hybrid system in the first place, it's because development began before the team had access to Switch development kits.

      One of the earliest Nintendo 64 titles to truly dazzle gamers was Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. At a time when many FPS titles still employed 2D sprites, this full-3D shooter really impressed and was arguably something of a killer app for the console.
      It has now been confirmed that the game - alongside its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil - will be coming to the Switch. The original Turok will launch on March 18th for $19.99. Release details for Turok 2 have yet to be confirmed.
