  • That and Central Point Software's PC Tools and also SpinRite.
  • The issue is likely Norton. I always download IrfanView and plugins from the FileForum site, which is one of the official listed alternate sited, and I have been for 15 years or so.
  • For me, and my "world", extremely unlikely. I'm a software developer and have had several other IT technical positions. All work computer that I work with run Windows, including dozens of servers, ...

  • You usually don't lose settings, but you sometimes do. I usually get 10 years out of CMOS batteries, sometimes only 5. I bought a bunch, I think via Amazon, for really old PC's and other things. Ju ...
  • I only changed the main one, and that fixed the tabs for me. browser.proton.enabled = False
  • In stock for me $13.99 with free Prime shipping. Check again.
  • Thanks. Change made.
  • Replied in IrfanView
    Yes, I primarily use the batch processing for resize with a little sharpen. I've done that with thousands of photos, for web photo albums. Of course, you can also make more complex adjustments on ...
  • My old PC updated to 21H1 this week. Somewhere on Microsoft's web site you can get updated to the latest version: I had to do that for one of my computers that said it was up to date long after a ...
  • I'm a diehard Firefox fan on my Windows 10 PC's and Android phone. Stuck with Chromium based Edge and in some cases still IE at work.
  • Yes, I already have micro DisplayPort and mini DisplayPort cables or adapters, for use with windows tablets. But most people don't have them sitting around. Yes, they are cheap and easy to ...
  • Yes, though you are more likely to need some sort of adapter with a MAC connected to a non-Apple monitor, since it is rare for a monitor to have Mini DisplayPort or USB-C inputs. They might be ...
  • Replied in IrfanView
    For adjustments (not hard-core editing), I use IrfanView. It is especially great for batch processing, like batch resize with sharpen, and many other things. I also use it as an image viewer. https ...
  • You can use any monitor with any windows PC and vice versa. As other's have explained, there are no proprietary connectors, though you do have to make sure both support the same or easily ...
  • Yep. I got rid of my last CRT monitor many years ago. I think I have some small portable TV's somewhere that have CRT's, and I have a couple oscilloscopes with CRT's (and also a newer LCD ...
  • It could be mounted on its side. :-)
  • We finally just transitioned from IE to new Chromium based Edge at work (US Coast Guard, so no small operation). My browser of choice at home and at previous jobs has been (still is at home and on ...
  • I assumed LCD monitor, right? Old flat CRT monitors had a couple visible wires to stabilize the aperture grille. We discussed those back in this 2007 thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/24 ...
  • Likely an issue on my early gen i7 system. Probably not an issue on newer systems.
