These things annoy me in Windows 10

We talked about some of the items in this article and I mentioned a couple of keyboard shortcuts I like to use:

Win + Pause opens the system control window

Shift + ctrl + Esc opens the task manager or you can right-click the taskbar and select task manager
Google Translate will convert your text or web page content to of up to 90 different languages and the Android app does even more:

* Type to translate 90 languages
* Use your camera to translate text instantly in 26 languages
* Two-way automatic speech translation in 40 languages

Skype charging for phone calls? No; here is the info I found:
Skype-to-Skype calls are still very free. If you are asked to buy credit, then this means that you are not calling a Skype client but a phone number. Calling phones requires subscription or credit.

Fax it Nice seems to be charging for faxes now, but we found this site where you can send 1 page anywhere in America for free.
Clean install of Windows 10 and avoid bringing all your junk to the new OS.
