Windows 10 Secret Start
Microsoft's hotly anticipated next-generation desktop and tablet operating system was released to the public nearly one month ago, and the response so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Sure there have been a few speed bumps on the road, but by and large, people love Windows 10 ... mainly because it is not Windows 8.

One of the most talked about new features in Windows 10 is the Start Menu, which is actually an old Windows feature that was sorely missed in Windows 8. But did you know that there’s a special "secret" Start Menu in Windows 10 that you’ve probably never even seen before?

The Start Menu is indeed one of the biggest draws of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 platform. As much attention as it has received, however, there is still a whole other dimension to the Start Menu that many people have no idea exists.

As CNET noted in a recent post, there is a "secret" Start Menu that provides quick access to a range of common functions. And the best part, perhaps, is the fact that it's hiding right under your nose — it doesn't even need to be enabled from within Windows 10's settings in order to be accessed.

So how does it work? Simply right-click on the Windows 10 Start button and then ... that's it? Yep. That is all, folks.

Right-clicking on the Start button opens up a new panel of shortcuts that give users instant access to things like the Event Viewer, Task Manager, Control Panel, File Explorer and more.

Captain America: Winter Soldier
GameSpot just revealed the rival teams in "Captain America: Civil War" movie in an amazing promotional graphics. This came after shooting recently wrapped and new information is revealed.

"Captain America: Civil War" will tell the story of the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man, following government registration of superhero activity. These new images show exactly how the various heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will side when the two factions go to war. Check out the images below:

Team Iron Man
Iron Man, who favors registration, has War Machine, Black Panther, The Vision, and Black Widow to fight on his side. On the other, Captain America is backed by Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Winter Soldier, Falcon, and SHIELD agent Sharon Carter.

Team Captain America
The big omission here is Spider-Man, who will be making his Marvel Universe debut in Civil War. Also, where are the others: Thor, Hulk, Ant Man and Scarlett Witch?

The film is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who helped turn the second Captain America movie, 2014's The Winter Soldier, into a US$ 700 million smash. It stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Rudd and hits cinemas on 6 May 2016.

Caitlyn Costume
We know Halloween is a time to act like a kid again and there is a new costume this year that will definitely make the wearer the center of attention, and maybe even scare the living daylights out of every kid they encounter.

A "Call Me Caitlyn" costume inspired by Bruce Jenner's embarrassing Vanity Fair cover has surfaced on multiple online Halloween costume retailers. The costume includes a sash, wig, and padded top and, in pictures on the sites, is worn by a man, complete with stubble.

However, some political correctness (PC) advocates claim that it is offensive and was done in poor taste. They also alleged that many people are petitioning the retail stores not to support or sell it. Unfortunately, for these so-called PC police, their claims couldn't be further from the truth.

Online sites were hard-pressed to moderate thousands of comments from people all over the world defending the costume designer and manufacturer. They even pre-ordered several thousands already in time for the Halloween celebration. Below are some of their comments:

"kc6078:

so a guy dressing up as a woman for Halloween is offensive ... but a guy getting plastic surgery to look like a woman is not ... lol"
Others also put the blame of this issue getting blown out of proportion to Bruce's Jenner's need to publicize his life.

"none:

Here's a thought. If you don't want to be well known and take the chance of having a costume made after you then DON"T HAVE A TV SHOW! Don't make it so public that we can't avoid you if we tried. They just keep shoving it down our throats. And guess what? Some people aren't ok with it. They don't get it, it's just weird. And that is NOT their fault! It's a natural, biological reaction to seeing a man dressed like a woman. So if they have to be ok with trans this and trans that then you have to be ok with them not liking it and ridiculing it. Works both ways."
Meanwhile, others just can't help to throw sarcastic remarks at the seemingly selective judgement of some PC police by ignoring what is considered as "offensive" to others as well.

"Cathy:

Don't wear Native American costumes, it is offensive. Don't wear Bruce Jenner costumes, it is offensive. Don't wear Bill Cosby costume, it is offensive. Don't dress like a girl, it is offensive. Don't dress like a guy, it is offensive. Don't let your son dress like a girl for Halloween, it is gender questionable. Don't go as a bald man, it is offensive. Don't dress as anyone, it is offensive. Don't do anything remotely offensive ever. Because people don't know how to just live and let live and have fun with things in this wonderfully politically correct world. I mean, why would we want our children to dress as goblins or vampires or witches for Halloween, that may be offensive as well. Give me a freaking break. It is a costume. It is for one day. It is stupid that EVERYONE seems to be getting offended by EVERYTHING. Grow up people who are offended by life, it's LIFE. Bunch of babies."
There was also a consensus that some of those that promote the LGBT agenda are trying to make the country rigid with no sense of humor at all.

"Common:

I think the TG community is ignoring the fact that men dressing up as women has always been a source of comedy for the public. Think of movie scenes, "Bosom Buddies", TV commercials (recent Doritos with a dad dressing up as a woman to be his daughter's playdate). Sports' teams and fraternities often have their rookies/new recruits dress in drag for a good laugh. To many people, men will always look hysterical and absurd wearing women's clothing. If TGs can manage to pass, particularly those who have hormone injections before puberty, then they can avoid the ridicule. However, large, hairy men with beards in delicate clothing is just too much for people to take seriously. I mean nice people too."
While others are just too plain angry on how some LGBT advocate ignored the more critical problems just to ensure that they can ram their despicable agenda on everyone who does not want to have anything to do with them at all.

"Marianne:

Oh shut up already. F U and the "backlash" so to speak. This guy is nothing more than a celebrity cross-dresser who still has his manhood. This guy, and he is still a guy, didn't break down any barriers. This guy brought on all the publicity. What ticks me off is how much the death of that woman from the car crash got swept under the rug. This bowl of jello gets an ESPY Arthur Ashe Award for Courage for dressing in women's clothing. Has his own tv show. He come off like a circus clown. He didn't mind going through his life getting married multiple times and having kids. Having his image thrown out with that trash family he was associated with. There are bigger tragedies in this world than a friggin costume made after this guy."
Finally, there are those that does not believe that there was a adverse reaction to the costume at all.

"Michael:

What backlash? I think it is kind of funny. Jenner asked for the attention, and he can't turn it on or off when he feels like it. The jeannie is out of the bottle. If people are offended, blame Jenner - if he did not want to be on Vanity Fair and get a reality TV deal out of it, there wold be no "I am Cait" Halloween costume. Totally biased article.

For this Halloween my wife was going to have herself and a couple of girlfriends put on prarie dresses and put their hair in a bun and hang out with me (in jeans with a shirt buttoned up to the collar) and dress up as polygamists for Halloween - should I worry about offending someone? Will the PC police come after me?"

Jenner Halloween Costume
There are still about two months left before Halloween and if you are a straight and pure man who isn’t sure of what costume to wear, there is one a great outfit for you.

In the run up to the annual celebration, a number of new costumes tend to do the rounds this early. And the first of this year’s bunch is already in – a costume fashioned on Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock this past year you'll know that the Olympian (and Kardashian-Jenner family member) made the incredibly despicable transition from Bruce to Caitlyn Jenner. And considering that gross and Halloween usually go hand-in-hand, the new costume is slowly becoming more in-demand.

The unisex, and arguably hilarious, costume is based on Bruce’s filthy Vanity Fair cover and comes with a sash reading 'Call Me Caitlyn' – in case anyone is unsure who the person wearing the getup is supposed to be.

A few websites are selling the outfit, while a major Halloween retailer says it too has a Jenner costume on the way because they recognized that it will be a hot commodity one people get hold of the information that it is available.

"You probably won't break any Twitter records when you wear this outfit like Caitlyn (Bruce) did when she first made her account, but you'll be sure to get a few laughs out of your friends and the other guests at the get together," Anytime Costumes explains in their description.

Many people have already placed their orders, deeming it as the most appropriate Halloween costume this year and saying it will be the center of any party. Halloween costumes are ridiculous and just a bit of fun. This new design is definitely one of those that appropriately belong to the category that includes witches, zombies and pumpkins.

A person born a man who thinks he can easily transform into a woman in his mentally ill head definitely deserves his own Halloween costume.

No, this is not a way to make fun of the mentally ill because that would be unjust. It is simply a way to poke fun at all the liberal nutjobs who praise Bruce for being such a "strong" role model for their cause.

Unfortunately, this is a lost cause just like the fall of Michael Sam.

Microsoft Optimization Pack
Tech giant Microsoft has just made available the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) to its subscribers last 17 August 2015.

MDOP is a collection of virtualization, management and recovery tools for Windows business customers. It bundles together Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM), Application Virtualization for Windows Desktops (App-V), User Experience Virtualization (UEV), BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM), Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) and Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V).

The 2015 "Spring" release includes App-V 5.1; MBAM 2.5 Service Pack (SP) 1; UEV 2.1 SP1; DaRT 10; and AGPM 4.0 SP3. All of those updated pieces now include support for Windows 10. The full list of updated features for MDOP 2015 is available on the MDOP 2015 MSDN page by clicking "Details."

Microsoft delivered MDOP 2014 R2 in December 2014.

Earlier this year, Microsoft officials told customers that Microsoft planned to offer Enterprise users with Software Assurance free access to MDOP. To date, MDOP has been an optional but paid add-on for Enterprise and Software Assurance customers. As of the launch of Windows 10, MDOP was slated be included for free with Software Assurance for new customers and renewal customers, but not retroactively.

MDOP isn't the only set of Windows 10 tools for which business users are waiting. Several users are also interested to find out when will the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 be released. These tools allow Windows 10 PCs to connect to and manage Windows Server.

A Microsoft official said last month the Windows 10 version of RSAT should be out around mid-August.

A couple more Windows 10 tidbits that may be of interest to business users. For those who have been asing why some users who have PCs on domain-joined networks are having the "Update to Windows 10" app, if not Windows 10 itself, automatically downloaded to their PCs - a scenario Microsoft officials seemed to indicate wouldn't occur - there are various possible reasons.

Windows IT Pro's Rod Trent noted a few of them, including the fact some business users are set to get automatic updates via Windows Update, and some users log in to multiple domains.
