I just found this article via a post in ZDnet, it might be important to know about.


Historically in windows, if you're doing mass copying, if you are to decide on say a duplicate file or something, you are overtly notified: a little dialogue box coming to the front of all your windows, notifying you of the problem in a pending operation.


In Windows 10, apparently someone's now omitted that box, so your copy/move job might be suspended and you won't know.  Instead, some little red lining goes on your task bar icon (article shows the newfangled 'notice' in a picture).  Easily missed.

Totally agree with the first comment in that article. Changing file dialog boxes not being spawned to the foreground in Windows 8 and 10 is a step backwards.
