When colors in the Windows Photo Viewer (Win 8 to 10) look oddly wrong, it’s probably because of something called “color profile“.
- Open “System Control” (Systemsteuerung)
- “Color Management” Farbverwaltung
- Select your monitor
- Check “Use my settings for this device” (“Eigene Einstellungen für das Gerät verwenden”) (otherwise, you can’t click anything at the bottom)
- Select “sRGB IEC61966-2.1”
- Click “Set as Default Profile” (“Als Standardprofil festlegen”)
- Repeat for each monitor
- Restart Photo Viewer (Fotoanzeige)

Good things need time. Even if they hurt you every day. File operations (copy, move, delete) on Windows are such a pain.
The damn thing takes half an hour to found out how many files to delete and then deletes them in a couple of seconds. Or the old joke “How long will it take?” Or copying two folders with the same name over each other (computer experts call that “merging”).
Well, M$ listened (they always do – they just rarely care) and after only … calculating … 29 years, they’re going to fix it! Yay ^_^
PS: Linux does it this way since a couple of years. Not sure about Mac. So another thing that M$ reluctantly “invented” after everyone else had it for years.

If you’re on Windows 7, you may know this odd behavior: For some reason, Eclipse goes into a build frenzy. Every few seconds, it will rebuild the workspace.
The reason: You added your workspace to a Windows 7 Library and you have “Refresh Automatically” enabled.
My guess is that indexing of Windows 7 Libraries creates temporary files which make Eclipse believe something changed in the Workspace. Which causes a rebuild. Which makes Windows re-index the workspace.
Workaround: Remove your workspace from the library or disable “Refresh Automatically”.
