And gettng crazier all the time.  I got Windows 10 free because I took part in
the INSIDER pprogram.  The very first thing it did was break a couple of
programs I use daily.  So, I uninstalled it (you have 30 days to do that) and
installed it on another drive so I could then dual-boot to and from it.  One of
 the things they did was disable the changing of window colors. I kicked up a
fuss about that to no avail and I'm not the only one, either.  THEN on the
February 2019 rollup they changed their voice recognition system, known as
Cortana, so that you had to train it to your voice whereas the original one
understood me perfectly.(!)
 
...There's never a gong around when you need one.
 
 
Regards,
 
Roger
P.S.  I have a spare machine with XP on it that runs perfectly.  I really like
it.
