Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Enable tabs in Windows 11 (Dev) File Explorer

Last week, Rafael revealed that tabs are coming back to File Explorer. Here’s how to enable the feature.

App pick of the week: Notion

Mary Jo and I used Notion for the show notes this week. Guess what? No sync errors. (Good thing Microsoft is about to copy this app with Loop!)

Plus: Start11 now in 1.2 beta

Enterprise pick of the week: Surprise! There’s a Win Server release (or 2) coming this year

Just when you thought Microsoft was going to release just one new version of Win Server once every 2-3 years (as they said they would), there are signs at least one and maybe two new versions of Server are coming later this year.

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Changes are on the way for Microsoft’s Partner Program

A new name, new way of being certified and more. What’s still not officially on the way: Any kind of positive changes to the New Commerce Experience. But there are signs this might still happen.

Beer pick of the week: Other Half Bang On

Dry Irish stout is traditional for St. Patrick’s. Guiness is great (if poured right) but not the only game in town. Many other breweries are making their own, like NYC’s Other Half with Bang On. Low bitterness, low alcohol, roasty and tasty.
