  • Actually there is the Automatic Display Control (ADC) technology which does theoretically allow software to "drive" some of the basic monitor settings. From what I've read over the years, however, ...
  • Replied in But Why ...
    You know what your response reminded me of…? That I need to put on my big boy pants and work on finishing the last bit of Laphroaig I have left in the bottle. :-)
  • Replied in But Why ...
    It just came across to me that you had a personal belief you needed to have this driver installed even though myself and at least one other person told you that you may not need it. If you ...
  • Replied in But Why ...
    But why did you feel the compulsion to install this driver at all? Was it just one of those “I’m going to defeat you!” situations with your computer? That’s certainly fine if it was. I’ve been ...
  • Thanks for tips like this Sean. In my experience and within my preferences, I find File Explorer to possibly be the most unrefined piece of Windows 10.
  • A side note on this: The Zigbee wireless protocol used by Philips Hue and other “smart home” devices overlaps the same 2.4 GHz spectrum as Wifi. From what I’ve read, pretty much any Wifi device ...
  • Adobe themselves seems to say you get one month before they even say anything and then 99 days beyond that with occasional notifications you need to phone home. Internet connectivity, offline grace ...
  • Replied in Here's a way
    Thank you for this. I've added it to the list of items I re-do or verify after Windows feature updates.
  • "Age old" Windows 10 question but I'm just checking in to make sure this is indeed still the case. From a powered off state , is there still no way of powering on your Windows 10 system and ...
  • I tend to agree that you might be asking for trouble by trying to just migrate your usage over to another email address. Although if you use it just for nothing more than accessing the forums ask ...
  • For whatever it's worth, Authy has a setup guide for Team Viewer. It appears to show you where the QR code is generated and displayed when setting up 2FA for your Team Viewer account. https://authy ...
  • That does indeed align with my findings. “Protected” means DRM-laden. I had no videos though in my library so I have no firsthand experience with those. It certainly seems reasonable to assume the ...
  • There are many different factors that can affect the overall performance of WiFi for a given device. (1) Distance from your router (2) Quantity and type of physical obstructions ...
  • You likely don't need to concern yourself with it. Probably 99.9% of monitors today don't need drivers to be installed. They're simply no longer needed. One possible exception might be if a monitor ...
  • Nope, not for Mint itself. Mint's own primary repo has always topped the chart whenever I've checked in Software Sources. That said, v20 did have a UK repository set for upstream Ubuntu when I ...
  • Thanks for the overall feedback on iTunes for Windows. You're probably already aware of this, but Apple removed the DRM from pretty much all of the download-purchased music several years ago. I ...
  • Mint 20 Cinnamon installed to the dedicated Linux SSD within my system without issue and doesn't seem to have touched anything Windows-related on the other drives and partitions. Hardware: Asrock ...
  • Created discussion thread FYI Mint 20 has been released
    Not much to say really. Just a heads up that Linux Mint 20 has been officially released. The usual release blurbs can be found of the front page of the web site.
  • Hmmm... The major address bar overhaul Mozilla did with version 75 did not sit well with me. Hard to believe that wasn't even three months ago. Regardless, upon seeing those v75 changes I ...
  • Replied in Monitor marks
    I have issues with the panel in my monitor that look different from yours. That said, I did do a fair bit of research to see if there was any methodology for isolating the actual cause. ...
