you can sign in to just the app store if you really want as well

although I have to give MS props for letting you get free stuff from the windows store without having to have an account at all (until now, probably)

my fave is the way Teams will just add parameters to URLs that you click on, leading people to embed those parameters into our web pages.

or the way Sharepoint online has no way of just right clicking and opening links in new windows when in the page or document library, you gotta Get A Link instead, which then also has some janky rear end parameters randomly attached it them.

or the way Teams will just randomly reassign my audio device to some USB thing, instead of the headset I've been using for years.

thanks satya

I do have to LOL whenever I see a link where the actual HREF is urldefense.proofpoint.com

music from the 60s or whatever when stereo was first recorded and the artists went overboard infuriates me. yes i want to only listen to the guitar with one ear, great job. oh now you're switching ti between ears rapidly? wow thanks!

also didn't they do some stuff where they would take previously-mono recordings and pan random tracks left and right and reissue it as a stereo record?

anyway about 20 years ago I had one of my stereo speakers hooked up with 20m of wire so I could drag it from the computer room into the middle of the house and play music. mono mode was useful!

i wish there was a way to permanently disable "headset" mode on my headphones because it's broken as hell

is that a bluetooth headset that has both speaker profile and handsfree profile?

if so, in the new (Metro-style) control panel go into sound -> manage sound devices.
disable the input and output devices that are the handsfree ones.

They called it the 360 since they were going up against the PS3 and didn't want to call it Xbox 2. OK, I get that.

Then when they made the Series X they are going up against the PS5 with what could be claimed to be the fifth generation of Xbox but didn't want to call it Xbox 5. :wtc:
