About GrantBarker.com

Storage box iconA personal site and practical resource for Windows enthusiasts

This site is my online home (so please forgive the site name). I like computers, so I enjoy sharing fun and practical easy-to-apply information back and forth with Windows users, including News You Can Use - for things you can do, install or enjoy right now.

Until a couple of years ago, I mainly hosted custom ROM lists for the Samsung Galaxy Note range of smartphones for those who were interested in phone customization - especially the community members over at XDA Developers.

(A custom ROM for a smartphone is a customized version of the operating system, which you can develop, make and share with other people - for them to install and use on their own same model smartphones.)

The tech articles here are written mainly for Windows 10 users. Here's an example of some of the content you can find.
