I don’t usually blog about these topics, but I feel Windows 10 and the Edge browser justify it. Also, I need a little break from the ABP related posts.
Just upgraded my old laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Enterprise. In the past, I have decided to skip Windows 8 altogether because it made me feel like a fish out of the water and an unproductive one at it.

I have noticed a new attribute named ‘Color’ in the new entity form (Online, 2015 RU 0.1). It is not documented in the online help yet, but guessing this attribute purpose is not difficult: customize the entity panel color in the navigation menu for custom and existing (OOTB) entities. Nice! The Color attribute input text length is limited to 7 characters, to match a color Hex code such as #FF6600 (Orange). Setting a Hex code will let you preview the represented color in the preview box beside the attribute text box. You can find any color Hex code...
