Vote for adding screen recording capability to Snipping Tool (see link in comments)
3 projects | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 19 Nov 2021
Those are rare, and I actually think Microsoft would provide a good screen recording tool (if they do in fact implement it). My point of view is based on the many recent decisions from Microsoft regarding its software ecosystem. For example, the moves toward Linux and open source community. These moves are beyond marketing statements, they make a difference for developers and users -- and require that Microsoft put a constant effort on maintaining and improving the software.3 projects | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 19 Nov 2021

Ask HN: What tools make using Windows more bearable (for Linux folk)?
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 Nov 2021
If possible, get Windows 10 Pro. It gives you access to the Group Policy Editor - not available in Win 10 Home edition - which is where you can turn off things like telemetry and auto updates.
That should help you get rid of most annoyances. You can manually clear out your start screen so that pressing the Win key just pops up your wallpaper and lets you type to search for programs and files.
Make sure to install WSL for an ubuntu environment that can interact with your Windows filesystem (via /mnt/). Almost everything in WSL functions as it would in a regular Ubuntu distro aside from some networking and GPU things.
ConEmu/Cmder for a pretty terminal to go along with WSL.
Xming for an X server that lets you run Linux GUI programs (I rarely find this useful though, seeing as GUI applications usually support Windows).
Everything search for an extremely fast file search that supports regex.
T-Clock Redux for a customizable time-date display.
Make generous use of virtual desktops! Relevant shortcuts are Win+Tab and Win+Ctrl+Left/Right.
Setting the taskbar to be compact with small icons will save you some vertical screen space. Works extra well with T-Clock.
I'm not hovering my mouse at the battery icon but somehow the bubble message is popping out when I hover at the empty taskbar.

I'm not sure whether this is a good idea or not but T-Clock shows it but Idk if it works on 11 as well.

My Windows 10 Setup is Back (Small Taskbar with T-Clock) Thanks to StartIsBack
1 project | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 9 Sep 2021
Thanks to StartIsBack, T-Clock is now working again. You can finally make your taskbar smaller again with it, and it also allows you to change the taskbar position. I can now use eartrumpet without having three awful system trays combined together because StartIsback separates it like in Windows 10.
Give us options for the clock in Windows 11.

Is there any T-Clock alternatives on Windows 11?
1 project | reddit.com/r/Windows11 | 30 Jul 2021
T-Clock made the clock in Windows 10 look very clean and I'm wondering if there are any safe Windows 11 alternatives because it doesn't work anymore.
Custom clock? is there a nicer layout for the clock and time in this vertical config.
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Windows10 | 18 Jul 2021
T-Clock is the answer. Also if the width bothers you (as it should), you can shrink it using 7+ Taskbar tweaker.2 projects | reddit.com/r/Windows10 | 18 Jul 2021
