Subscribers have spoken

Last week, Win10.Guru sent out a subscriber survey. We asked you how often you would like to get notification emails from us about new content. Of those who voted (23 subscribers), a substantial majority (18 or 78%) voted in for immediate notification. What that means is that after today’s weekly notification email you receive later today, we will return to immediate notifications for each new content element posted. An email will be automatically sent as soon as new content has been published.

We will keep the survey live and follow how it develops. If there is a clear change in your opinion in the future, we will react accordingly. See this post for the survey link.

In some of the emails we received, we were asked if it would be possible to get Windows desktop notifications about new content. In this era of GDPR, the European regulations protecting your privacy, the easiest method is for you to use an RSS feed reader. That way, we would not be even aware about you subscribing to our notifications, and not collecting any data.

Here’s a practical example. Install the small tool called RSS Feed Fetcher from the Microsoft Store. Run it once, to set up our RSS feed from https://win10.guru/feed/:

Click to open enlarged in a new tab.

You can now close the app. It will send notifications to your desktop each time new content is published on our site:

That’s it this time. Remember: you can always contact us with your concerns, tips and suggestions at info (at) win10.guru. Happy trails!

    Alright! Instant notification it is.

    Those who only want to read email notifications weekly can filter all the notifications into a Win10.guru dedicated subfolder and read them from there when time is convenient.

    That’s how I do it when I mostly want to be notified immediately but I get more mail from same sender than I have time to read. 😉
