Creating a User Friendly link using Microsoft Edge
Here is an example of a Friendly link and its unfriendly counterpart.
(4) Security News Roundup - YouTube

Both wind up at the same YouTube location. The first one is certainly easier on the eyes.
You'll find the tutorial on how to make this change in Edge so you can use this function below.

Automatically creating a user friendly URL using the Edge browser.
Thanks to https://davescomputertips.com for making me aware of this Edge feature.
Why not sign up for their Weekly Tips newsletter? I'm glad I did that many years ago.

Windows 11 Context Menu (Right click menu)
Usually used to do something special with a file or a Folder
In Windows 11, you now get a condensed listing of the possible file interactions available.
That context menu is usually limited to the most used functions.

If you need access to anything outside of those most used functions,
you'll need to select 'Show more options'
Since those most used functions don't include possible actions available via third party apps.
It's a pain to always have to use that extra step of selecting 'Show more options'
in order to get to your function provided by the third party app.
There is a native way around this annoyance.Instead of using the right click option on the selected file or folder,
use the shortcut keys of Shift + F10 and the full Context menu will display.
