      Please tell more about the issues you encountered. Nobody can help if they don’t know what you need help with.

      – What is the relevance of “Windows 10”? Most challenges and issues don’t depend on the OS that you use to develop a site, be it Linux or Windows or MacOS.
      – What does “lately” mean? The most likely interpretation: there used to be no issues, but for some reason some things that went OK in the past don’t work nowadays.

      In fact, I happen to be maintaining a website (developed by somebody else) on a 10 years old Windows 10 laptop. The challenge I encounter is that he knew much more of Perl than I do. But your issues might be different.

      Developing websites faces hurdles like:

      1. Scope creep: Project requirements growing uncontrollably.
      Solution: Define goals clearly upfront and use project management tools.

      2. Tech stack woes: Picking the wrong tools for the job.
      Solution: Research based on project needs and team expertise.

      3. Balancing design and usability: Making a website both attractive and user-friendly.
      Solution: Prioritize user needs and test your design for clarity and ease of use.

      4. Ensuring compatibility: Your website should work on all devices and browsers.
      Solution: Use responsive web design and test across different platforms.

      These apply to any OS, but Windows 10 specific issues might relate to development tool compatibility.

      Hello @zadmin1,

      Setting up the development environment can be cumbersome, especially when dealing with different versions of tools and dependencies.
      Use package managers like Chocolatey or Scoop to simplify the installation and management of development tools. Additionally, consider using containerization with Docker to create consistent development environments.
      Ensuring that your website looks and functions correctly across different browsers and devices can be difficult.
      Use tools like BrowserStack or CrossBrowserTesting to test your website on various browsers and devices. Implement responsive design principles and regularly test your site on different screen sizes.
      Websites can become slow due to large assets, inefficient code, or server-related issues.
      Optimize images, minify CSS and JavaScript files, and leverage browser caching. Use tools like Lighthouse (built into Chrome DevTools) to audit your site’s performance and get recommendations for improvements.
