  • Some additional information in the form of links: "here" and "here" Bill
  • I have not read the Forbes article as I am not inclined to disable my protection but I did read the infoworld article (above) about a week ago and came to the conclusion that WLM may still be ...
  • I didn't pursue the VPN route as it seemed to have it's own set of complications and it appears that not many people are interested in or using a VPN.  My internet service provider continues to ...
  • Jim, a couple of things come to mind. 1. Make sure you have gone to settings/system/storage and change the storage preferences to: New Apps save to C and everything else save to D. You may already ...

    Thanks Sean, this is very helpful information. I will wade through the link about Clear Type, vision permitting. First glance, there is no reference to Windows 10 but some mention of display ...

    I hear you about the custom scaling and while I certainly could be doing something wrong, the absence of support from Intel for my processor and graphics indeed makes me think this is the problem. Bill
  • Replied in Windows 10
    Really?  If it does, why am I having difficulty with custom scaling and why does Intel not support it with a new display driver?  The only drivers available from Intel for Sandy Bridge are for ...

    Thanks for the link. Windows 10 is running on my computer.....but not very well.  The results of custom scaling is not acceptable. Bill
  • Replied in Windows 10
    Well, a bit of an update and I have to say I am really ticked off. Days and days of trying to get Windows 10 working to a satisfactory level and now I find that my four year old computer does not ...
  • Replied in Windows 10
    Exactly what I am faced with.  For me, 125% is still a bit small and 150% is too big (picky I know).  I have been using custom scaling of 140% for several years and using Internet Explorer with ...

    Thanks, both options are certainly worth a try although I recall some talk of Windows 10 not being particularly receptive to Firefox....or any browser for that matter other than Edge or IE. UHD ...
  • Replied in Windows 10
    Well, I was pretty happy with Windows 7 and even though Internet Explorer was a pain at times, it did what I wanted.  Took me two tries on a laptop and two tries on a desktop over several months ...
  • I haven't explored all the possibilities since I use a static picture but if you look in Themes, there are some options in addition to what is available in "Background".  This might get what you ...
  • I noticed this today when I was turning off about 95% of the so called "features" that MS offers with Windows 10.  I almost missed it.  Unfortunately MS is not alone and in fact I did not renew my ...
  • On the Windows update page (assuming Windows 7) I think there are four or five choices on the left hand side of the page with "Restore Updates" being one of the choices.  With both my machines now ...
  • Remembering that the upgrade goes through Windows Update, have you checked for updates?  It might be waiting or available. No need to read the following long story but here is my experience from ...
  • Hello again. A question.  How are you viewing your photos?  Do you generally use Photoshop?  The reason I ask is that you may have to set some defaults.  When I upgraded to Win 10, I had a look at ...
  • Quite likely is a misconnection and I have found that even some desktop shortcuts (Win 7 to 10 upgrade) don't work because, for example, the picture location or path is different and it is ...
  • Jim, try double clicking on the browse button.  I had to do so the first time I tried to change the background to one of my photos. Bill
