    As I await delivery of my Pro X I thought it'd be helpful for people to share which programs they are running and recommendations they have. For example, one review talked about the better performance from Edge and the unofficial ARM Chredge over Chrome.

    I'm wondering if there are similar ARM optimized versions of popular apps we should be aware of, or any apps people would recommend or that we should stay away from.

    Anything to help optimize power, battery life, and efficiency!

    I saw the article fr Tom Warren that Tweeten did not install

    That's the first app I care about that wouldn't. I guess I'll stick with the native Twitter app

    Tweteen is currently is only available for x64 (no x86, ARM or ARM64). You may want to contact the developer if he is willing to compile for ARM64. Typically compiling a Win32 or UWP app for ARM64 is relativly effortless.
    Optionally he can also provide an x86 version, which runs under emulation - however ARM64 native is preferred of course.

    I've just downloaded the unofficial ARM version of Chredge (version 80) and it seems to run real well. Sync is working, and for what I use the browser for it appears to be fine.

    Any ideas on how to workaround for Dropbox? I didn't even think of it when I ordered it, but Dropbox doesn't work - might be a deal breaker for me...

    There's a Twitter user that posts updates with download links through a bot on Telegram. Here's the Telegram link - it's my first time using it so let me know if it doesn't work. https://t.me/MSEdgeUpdates

    I'm not sure what your permissions are like, but if you have Flow with Office 365 you can set up a flow that auto syncs your OneDrive and DropBox accounts, which might be clunky but could work: https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/con...opbox/dropbox/

    7-zip 64 bit Win32 app for ARM64. You getting 2xperformance of emulated x86 app. Just copy the whole folder including the DLLs and run FM.exe.

    Notepad++ 64 bit Win32 for ARM64 - my favourite editor. You most likely need the DLLs from the 7-zip package as well.

    Hint: If you copy the runtime DLLs into your c:\windows\system32 folder - any Win32 program can locate them there, so you dont need multiple copies.
