Advent 2019, day 13

Roger roger!

Slowly getting the laptop setup the way I like it, and in the process discovering all the annoyances that Windows 10 has brought. Foolishly I thought Microsoft might have improved Bluetooth file transfer sometime in the past 10 years, but nooo, you still have to start their file transfer program before Windows can receive a file and it'll only work for one file at a time. And the wonderfully useful Image Resizer PowerToy from the Windows XP days now doesn't work at all, even after persuading it to install in compatibility mode (which worked on Windows 7). Fortunately some searching found a replacement for that at least.
