I just learned about a pre-installed tool on Windows 10 called “Quick Assist” (or “Remotehilfe” in German). It has basically the same features most people use from tools like TeamViewer or AnyDesk. It lets you view or control a remote computer to help your family with computer problems for example.
If you want to use Linux applications on Windows you have multiple options. Using the Windows version of the application if it’s available, cross-compile the app, use a VM or Docker, or use the Windows Subsystem for Linux with a X Server.
Yesterday I ordered an external SSD to have a bit more storage on the go when using my Surface Go, but also to exchange files between my devices (it has an USB C cable, so it should even work with my phone). I have a huge (4TB) external HDD already, but that needs more power than what comes out of the USB C port on the Surface, so when I want to use that, I have to use a charging cable and that’s suboptimal.
