my Joy Con rattles when it's in the Ring Con!

If you use the Ring Fit Adventure controller ("ring con"), you may experience rattling when the controller vibrates.

If you put a bit of electrical tape on one side of the metal rail of the Ring-Con, the joycon slides in way harder but it also stops rattling. Just be sure to not put the tape over the bottom of the rail as there are some connector pins.

You can set an avatar for your user profile on the Switch and change the background colour.
