  • Check Windows Language Options . Make sure you have the correct language set, and check keyboard layout settings.
  • Yes, but I'd rather have the latest Firefox than NPAPI extensions, so ESR isn't for me.
  • Sadly there is no non-NPAPI replacement that I am aware of for IE Tab, which lets you open a site in the IE engine in a Firefox tab. Now I actually have to switch to IE for some sites that, ...
  • Thanks for the list of extensions. I already use ublock origin and NoScript. Here are a few others I use in Windows 7/10: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/custom-tab-width/ https://ad ...
  • Right, though for a TV that you will sit farther away from it wouldn't be such a big deal, though it seems like only 1 person would be able to sit in the ideal viewing location, and anyone off to ...
  • Replied in Clarification
    Windows 10 lets you snap apps to the 4 quadrants of your screen, by dragging the app to the corner you want it to snap to, and it will display in that 1/4 of the screen. You can also do half ...
  • I use my Google Voice number via Hangouts, on my Windows PC, my Android phone, Android and Windows tablets, etc., so I'm not familiar with the other Google Voice interfaces.
  • Yes, I just tried making a call from Google Hangouts from my Windows 10 PC from Firefox. I had to let a plugin install, but after that, and restarting Firefox, I made a phone call from my PC, and ...
  • What power supply do you have, and what is its efficiency rating? Which 80+ level does it have? (I hope it at least has the base level). And make sure it's not too oversized, otherwise it might ...
  • You could probably do something similar in MS Paint, I know I've combined multiple images using free image editing or adjustment software before, but I don't remember exactly which free software I ...
  • More and more apps and hardware don't work with XP. I really like Windows 7: It is better than any version that came before it, though XP was very good before Windows 7, and I also like Windows 10. ...
  • I was thinking that too.
  • Probably just a rounding error :-D
  • I'm still on T-mobile's latest version of the firmware, and it is working great. Someday I might convert it to the Asus firmware so I can try alternative firmware, like Merlin, etc., but it's not ...
  • I had been considering a Ubiquity access point, but I couldn't pass up the $60 Asus T-mobile TM-AC1900 deal, and it is working great so far.
  • I have several of those old routers (not currently being used). It also doesn't have gigabit Ethernet. Does your new cable modem have Gigabit Ethernet to plug a new WiFi router into? I would ...
  • I switched from using the 2.4 Ghz WiFi of my FIOS router to using my own dual-band wireless router, plugged into the gigabit Ethernet port on the FIOS router, and disabling WiFi in the FIOS ...
  • Plain FTP transfers files unencrypted, but FTPS (FTP with SSL) and SFTP (Secure Shell File Transfer Protocol) encrypt the transfer. Hopefully the server the user is uploading to uses one of those, ...
  • Both WINSCP and FileZIlla are excellent free FTP/SFTP/FTPS apps for Windows. I currently use WINSCP, but don't have a particular preference, though you might want to install both and see which you ...
