  • I do feel the first is better in perspective.  Not much actual bridge is shown but that may be because there isn't a lot of bridge there.  Coming from Edmonton I believe low river crossing bridges ...
  • Many thanks Patco and Russell.  Although I have Photo Gallery on my W-10 machine upgraded from W-7,  I couldn't get it on my new comp that come with W-10.  It would download but wouldn't install. N ...
  • Russell, I agree that W-10 can be made to work well and as I now have it on 3 types of computers it can do the job.  My main point was that in the W-7 to W-10 download Windows Live Photo Gallery ...
  • My feeling is to live with W-10 idiosyncrasies, even on my desktop.  I don't prefer it to 7 but it may be that the childish MS behavior and fits will mature with a lot of customization and time.  ...
  • Thanks Patco.  I forgot to allow any all words that might help YDD understand that the download / import function just might work with Picasa.  My bad!  :-(
  • It always amazes me why people ignore Picasa when trying for a good, do it all, organizer and editor.  I have used it for over 10 years and it works very well on W-10 as it has on all previous ...
  • Agree.  I have had 0 benefit from W-10.  Despite the fan boys it offers less than nothing for desktop users.  I find it quite good on portables but for desktops it is just not well suited.  I will ...
  • Replied in Canon Check
    First, as you will require an instruction manual go to the Canon site and download it.  Then check with Amazon as to a suitable battery.  They are very specific as to camera model but don't go for ...
  • I agree.  The relearning is almost over and I find W-10 to be almost likeable after a lot of personalizing.  Even Edge and Mail is performing well.  W-7 was a very solid OS but I wouldn't go ...
  • Hmmmm...  Actually you are dealing with me as above.  You can insult me as is your want but please try to stick to the issue which is my underpowered computer.  :-|
  • (A) You might reread that I have ordered this AIO for a backup to my much more powered up desktop.  (B)  Absolute fastest speed is not an issue for me or my wife. So you are using your over ...
  • If into hard core gamming and image processing sure an i7 may well be the way to go.  On a laptop it is overkill.  And again you don't need a 500 hp car to get the groceries.  :-)
  • These things improve virtually by the week.  2013 is a long time ago on a digital time line.  Not saying AIO's are good for all and everything but they have their use.  In my case I ordered a ...
  • I await the delivery of my Dell AIO Insp. 20 / 3059. 4GB / 1 TB. i3-6100U. It is a backup for my desktop and shared with my wife who has a small 2 in 1 laptop. Not intended as a prime computer but ...
  • Not all, but some do have a load of MS shares. W-10 takes a while to get to like or accept.  After a lot of rearranging, customizing and a lot of NO info transfer to MS it can be a little more ...
  • This seems to be the new norm.  On my desktop there has been the odd lock up and slow response.  Very often a set up wont hold and has to be redone.  It certainly isn't as quick and foolproof as W-7. ...
  • With a choice of 4 browsers I have available (I know there is more) I find that Edge offers nothing over the other 3 and has some quirks.  My ISP advises clients to use Firefox or Chrome as Edge ...
  • Well, what doesn't compute is that I didn't and wouldn't buy a new computer with W-7.  No, I just ordered a new 'all-in-one' with W-10 to replace an old laptop running Vista.  I will have ALL 3 of ...
  • One of the hidden flaws with W-10 is the Edge browser.  It simply isn't there yet.  You are right in stating MS can take anything simple and turn it into a complication.  I know this doesn't sit ...
