  • There is not much point in diagnosing this issue as you can just set up your email system better and it will go away. You are not using the outlook application. You are using the Windows 10 Mail ...
  • With these choices you clearly don't know what you are looking for (unless you are a gamer). I would scratch these and instead list what you want from a machine, including. Requirements for CPU/GPU ...
  • Replied in No
    You seemed to be arguing that >8bpc is unnecessary even in cameras, image files, and image processing. This is definitely untrue. In monitors it is less important. Do you understand this distinction?
  • Replied in No
    Your information is wrong. It would be pretty embarassing for a photography application to only support 8 bit. https://forums.adobe.com/thread/723930 Yes No The few people people who use these ...
  • According to Wikipedia, Wordpad saves files to text or rich text format with .txt or .rtf extensions. So there is no Wordpad document type. You need to identify the document type first; then you ...
  • Then you can discount this "problem". Screens generally have a max brightness that is irrelevant for serious use, aside from competing with other screens in bright stores. Erm yes reduce the ...
  • Hard to catch a virus on a default Windows 10 installation. However it is true that Store-only systems are inherently more secure. Android is a serious attempt at an OS, unlike Chrome OS. For ...
  • Why would you want to buy a chromebook? You are pairing slow processors (ARM) with web technology for the most part - a bad combination. You cannot run regular laptop applications. You cannot even ...
  • Any reason why you are building a gaming PC?
  • Replied in Replace
    Replace. Yes a seven year old machine is not worth getting up and running, even as a donation. Some of the parts could be reused if they are newer. Slightly crazy that you are deliberating between ...
  • If you give the laptop specs we can tell why it is having trouble. Irrelevant. Discrete graphics cards, and even high end integrated, do not give noticeably different performance for editing single ...
  • I hope so. Skype for Business badly needs an update and is only better than Skype for screen sharing.
  • Skype's iOS and Android app changes have been justly ridiculed. Microsoft bought Skype a long time ago. Inevitably microsoft accounts are used. Maintaining a more complex system (ms accounts plus ...
  • If you got to 90% performance of a natively compiled ARM app from this I would be impressed; if only 50% I would be unimpressed. But I have not designed chips or written any relevant compilers or ...
  • That is only true if this includes the monitor, and the monitor is perfectly hardware callibrated to sRGB without the need for further correction. I am interpreting the presence of old web links ...
  • You are referring to my expectation that Windows on ARM systems will perform terribly? For me to be wrong you would need two things to be true: 1. ARM would need to catch up to Intel at 15W+ power ...
  • Chrome also does not have color management
  • Edge does not have color management. Therefore not suitable for photographers. As far as I am aware firefox is the only browser on Windows with working color management.
  • If they cannot upgrade Windows or even apply updates because of legacy systems, then they can hardly just migrate to linux and expect their legacy systems to work. Moreover taking some version of ...
