Windows ShotsHey, welcome back to another Windows 10 Shots blog post.  I hope you read my last post, Windows 10 Shots – Game Bar Keyboard Shortcuts.

I have mentioned in previous posts, with most shots, after about a handful, things will start to get a little hazy.  But, with Windows 10 Shots (this new series of posts), the hope would be that the opposite would happen.  That clarity and insight into the highly anticipated release would free your mind to great new features and power of Windows 10.

How often do you sit down at your computer and forget to bring your phone with you or leave it on silent?  After getting caught up reading your favorite blog or playing the 158 level of Angry Birds, you finally finish up, look down at your phone or walk over to where you placed it last (which happens to be on silent) and you notice that you missed a number of calls.  Two of which aren’t that important, but one that is probably important enough for you to feel like you need to respond, pronto.  If you could have only heard the phone, you would be feeling less stress.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had someone watching your phone for you, telling you that you have missed a call?  Maybe that person would even help you to respond quickly, even if you are in the middle of things?  Guess what, Windows 10 can help you with that.

Streaming with Hardware

As some of you might already know, being able to stream content from your PC/Tablet/Phone to a large screen for presenting a PowerPoint slide deck, playing a game, watching a movie, viewing pictures, etc. is appealing to any user.  It allows them to share the content on a smaller screen to a bigger screen for everyone to enjoy.

The ability to stream information to a TV, for example is usually not a native capability built into your TV (though, this is more than likely going to change).  However, there are third party devices that allow you to stream content over your Wi-Fi network or via Bluetooth.  There are a number of players in this arena:  Google, Apple, Roku and even Microsoft, to name a few.
