John Weigle   For those of us who sometimes get distracted or forgetful, has anyone developed software that would tell me, for instance, that Microsoft is updating Windows 10 so U won’t shut the computer down by mistake? I try to remember to check every time I start to shut down, but sometimes… It would also be nice to know if my AV program is scanning or something is being downloaded. I’m sure there are some other things we might like to have warnings about.
