Here's a weird question: in Windows 10, while it remembers the position of my various windows when I re-open an application, it won't let them open on the edges of the screen (except the top), so there's always like a 10px margin between the app window and the edge of the desktop. It wasn't like this in Win7. Is there a way to fix this? I just want to put some windows in the bottom right of my screen.

I recall having an issue with this when Windows 10 first came out back in 2015. In that case I found toggling the old Aero Snap behavior on and then back off caused it to stop having the problem. I think it's just called "Snap" under "Multitasking" in the Settings menu now.

oh my god is that a circular saw that does not go in my mouth aaaaagh

Hm, I tried futzing with those settings, but no dice. I'm not actually docking these windows; they're just regular, non-maximized windows.

Best I was ever able to do was shrink the gap a bit:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

set PaddedBorderWidth to 0

Let me know if you find a full solution; it drove me crazy that someone, somewhere assumed nobody ever works with non-maximized/snapped windows.

I think it has to do with the OS somehow expecting the old, thick-rear end Win 8 style window borders and thus leaving a margin about the size of those at the edges of the screen (except the top, which is I believe the same dimensions as it was in 8). It annoys the hell out of me since I have my browser set to max height, but not max width, for readability purposes.

We have this also, no fix as of yet. Sometimes you wonder if they even test stuff, forwarding attachments is not some random use-case I would think.

No, but (sadly) using plain text for email is

Well we have some multifunctionals that send plain text emails, and people forward those to colleagues and the like, so it is pretty common where I work.

Why can't plain text be the default? Like sometimes I need to send a link or whatever but it really, really should be what people use 99% of the time.

So my computer failed the latest windows 10 update, restored to previous version, now modern setup host is taking up 13% of my system memory and 17% of my cpu. Is this normal?

For Windows 10 all of that sounds absolutely normal.
