Nintendo Switch has been center of attention for a lot of hackers and modders as they love to tinker with the handheld console. This time around hackers have managed to install Windows 10 on Nintendo Switch. Hackers managed to achieve this by exploiting the original Tegra processor’s boot code. There is an exploit in Switch’s Tegra processor that can be used to bypass security measures in place. Also, hackers didn’t install Windows 10 Home or Pro version on Nintendo Switch but ARM version of the OS.

You wimp! Readers as old as our executive editor, Alan, will know that Windows Icons Menus and Mouse Pointer (WIMP) is the ancient acronym that describes the original mouse-driven graphical interfaces that spawned out of Xerox labs. Despite a messy attempt with Windows 8, Microsoft was never able to kill off the classic icon-based desktop that most PC users know and love.We should admit to the truth, though: The classic desktop isn't so great.

I have a confession to make: I played God of War for way too long with an annoying black border on my screen. At first, I thought it might’ve been an aesthetic choice. But after asking a few friends and co-workers, I found out that it most certainly was not. I checked the in-game display settings and even cycled through different picture sizes with my TV remote — nothing was helping. Fortunately, the fix is extremely easy, although the question still remains: Why is it only just now that the game asked me to dive into my PS4 settings?
