WOA on Lumia - more near W10m experience (larger and lighter) WIP

Post by hardwiredw10 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 6:54 am

I started this topic as I feel anyone using WOA will want a more similar approach of the OS near the W10 experience.

Feel free to add your own insight.

1st. Non brainer - enable tablet mode! From the lower right corner on your desktop.

1nd. Really optional, but quite frankly a must in battery saving - enable Dark mode in settings - personal - colour - dark mode switch.

3rd. Less optional, but important for your larger fingers - make larger text and icons - settings - system - display - increase the text and icon percentage (2nd slider if I'm not mistaken) to something like 300%.

4th. Disable services not required, such as Windows Defender (optional)

Please anyone feel free to add more, and mods can change this text at will to reflect the reality at any time. - This is just a draft....

I think 364% (2K) and 273% (1080P) is more similar to mobile.

I noticed a significant performance boost by disabling visual effects:

1. go to "Control Panel"
2. select "System"
3. click on "Advanced system settings"
4. select the "Advanced" tab
5. in "Performance" click on "Settings"
6. select the "Visual Effects" tab
7. select "Adjust for best performance" radio button
8. (optional) Reenable "Smooth edges of screen fonts" for better font display
9. click on "Apply" and "OK" to store the new settings
