Still My Favourite Free Office Software Suite 1 month 6 days ago MidnightCowboy Softmaker FreeOffice is fully compatible with Windows 10 and works fine on my wife's desktop. Either you have a corrupted download or a local issue with your machine possibly related but not restricted to security software interference or the previous use of tools such as so called registry cleaners. In any case it is unfair to label the software as "useless" when so many folks use it without issue. MC - Site Manager. view
Still My Favourite Free Office Software Suite 1 month 6 days ago raymond4500332

I tried downloading and installing Softmaker Freeoffice just on a whim like you sugested. Downloading from the website required registering to get an activation number. When I tried to install the software, all it would do on my Windows 10 PC would display a language selection option and then, disappear. Checking the Task Manager, I saw no indication of any activity from the Softmaker software. Three times I tried to install Freeoffice without any success. I erased the useless software.

You want to use Softmaker Freeoffice, Joe A.TT? Go right ahead. I'm sticking with my legal copy of M$ Word 2003. I know it works.

Gizmo - this product isn't really "completely free" as you say. The free version has a limit of 10 devices. These days, with TV boxs and tablets and smartphones all having IP addresses, a limit of 10 addresses makes the "free" version almost useless.

I used this application a lot but then discovered that it has succumbed to going commercial after 10 devices. Sorry to say but going to look elsewhere for an option or will stick with an older version of the app which does not have this restriction. Just do not update it.

No, FreeOffice is not exactly the same as MS Office. And yes, I do occasionally have to collaborate with others who use MS Office, so compatibility is really important to me. I suppose in your case, since compatibility isn't important then it shouldn't matter. What I have a problem with is LibreOffice, or more precisely, The Document Foundation's half lie about compatibility with MS formats then telling me I should use their file formats to fix compatibility issues. Mind you, FreeOffice might not be 100% compatible either but I am definitely not experiencing the same issues.

Wallpaper of the Week: Holiday Wallpaper Roundup 1 month 1 week ago rhiannon

Yep, that's why I mentioned that I came across a wallpaper that contained an expletive in the description of Wallpaper Abyss. I didn't run into any NSFW (not safe for work) scenes but I viewed the first 20+ pages or so of images and saw the one with the expletive (which seems to part of waaaaay too many people's sentences these days for my preferences) in it, thus the warning. :)

Been using LibreOffice since 2010. In 2010 the main developers of Open Office broke away after it was taken over by Oracle. They adopted the name LibreOffice so as to distance themselves from the Oracle controlled Open Office. There is more to this story but I will leave that to your own research. In any event, I like LibreOffice because of the ability to work with MS Office files as well as others. I can even open old Lotus 123 files with it. And you can also work with PDF documents...open, edit, save. Someone stated that support was a joke. I really don't know what you expect from a "FREE" office suite. For the average home user, LibreOffice is awesome!

view
Still My Favourite Free Office Software Suite 1 month 1 week ago Geekomatic

I guess it all depends on how much compatibility you require? You might do more back & forth with things -- where a lot of others, (me included) only handle basic docs, etc. I don't collaborate in other words. I've only had one time it was an issue & it turned out to be the fonts needed weren't installed in my distro.

So, you're saying that FreeOffice is exactly the same as MS Office? What's missing from that vs. standard, that someone of minimal-normal usage might miss?

Cheers

Need To Make A PDF File Smaller? Look No Further 1 month 1 week ago MarshalBlake

There is nothing easier than that now. You can find a number of pdf converters that can also make the file smaller. I know that Adobe reader can do almost everything with pdf right now. It can split it in to parts, add some pages to it, edit it, convert pdf into word or wise versa. If you don't have adobe soft, you will find many free stuff online but features are limited.
At http://essaydune.com/write-my-paper/ service we use Adobe, last version and it's more than enough.

I struggled with messed up formatting for 5 months until I realized that LibreOffice was the culprit. Support is a joke. Their solution was to use LibreOffice format. Say what?? Why advertise that an office suite is compatible with MS formats when it is such a headache to use?

I went back to SoftMaker FreeOffice and all my problems disappeared. I wish I could get those 5 months back.

LibreOffice? Run! Run as far away as possible. You have been warned!

P.S. SoftMaker FreeOffice is available for Linux too. That is what I am using in Linux Mint.

Still My Favourite Free Office Software Suite 1 month 1 week ago Geekomatic

I concur.

Being a Linux user, I see nothing even close to Libre Office. I install it for people who don't want the hassle of MS nor the costs & BLOAT of MS Office.

I then go in & make the change of "save" format permanent to MS Office, so that the things they create in LO will open for their less, savvy friends still under the MSO yoke- lol.

You do this under tools>options>load/save>general. Choose text/spreadsheet/presentation & one after the other, choose "MS Office 2003" for the format (careful NOT to choose "template"). You don't have to say ok or close between choices- they'll stick.

Also, you can open Publisher documents & save as Publisher using LO Draw! All you have to do is place .pub at the end of the save name!

Cool beans!

Edit: meant to say that there are occasional glitches moving between suites. For instance, a Word doc created with "word-wrap" (text surrounding an image) will be borked when opened with LO. I'm sure there are other glitches, but overall I'm still a dedicated LO fan!

It has been more than ten years since USB memory sticks first became bootable. So in the unlikely event that your computer is so old or simple that it doesn't have BIOS support for booting from a USB memory stick then there are free programs to help provided you have a bootable removable drive like an optical drive (CD/DVD/BD) or floppy disk.

The application Unchecky is quite useful in helping to deal with PUPs (such as OpenCandy) that may be included with an application one would like to install. During the installation process, it helps steer one along the path to the options (if they have been provided) to deselect the PUPs that may have been bundled with the app. It also writes exclusions to the HOSTS file, preventing the PUPs from phoning home (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Unchecky.shtml). The app automatically updates itself.

Also extremely useful (in many ways) is the venerable WinPatrol, as another commenter has mentioned (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Popup-Ad-Spyware-Blockers/WinPatrol.shtml).

Both are highly recommended (if not essential) for every Windows box, IMHO.

If you don't want to see ads, please download an adblocker extension for your browse. AdBlock Plus, and ublock origin are two really good ones. It's a must nowadays.

As for the download page, here it is:

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html

When you scroll down the page, you will see two choices from where you can download the ISO. One is P2P, which is for downloading via torrent, and for that a magnet link is provided. Rather than the suggestion provided there of utorrent, I will suggest Tixati, which is clean and free.

Second option is of Mirror Sites, from where, you can download the ISO normally. Remember to click on the first column of the table, which contains "iso", with an icon of download, which should start the download from any of the sites.

Magic Jelly Bean KeyFinder will not install any of unwanted software anymore.

More than, this tool is perfect free keyfinder option. However, it supports less features in comparison with Recover Keys, which our developers created to ease the work of network administrators in large companies, as well for home users.

I was a windows user from about 1994 and always updated to the new Windows OS as soon as it came out but with the debacle of Windows 10 and the data mining issue I converted to Linux Mint after trying several other Distro's like Zorin, Ubuntu and several others. I eventually settled on Mint Cinnamon 17.1 and now running Mint Cinnamon 18. I am a PC user and have no technical expertise I am just a PC user but found the experience of moving from Windows to Mint easy and surprisingly easy and enjoyable and now a convert to Linux and especially when you consider the expense of running a Microsoft OS for all the extra software you need to keep it safe and and being to be able to use it where as with Linux it is all free. I do recommend however that users do make a donation to the developers as it helps fund development of the Distro.

Hey guys! My tool DiskTuna has been on this list a long time with a decent rating (see: https://web.archive.org/web/20160405012319/http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-de-fragmenter.htm). It hasn't been maintained for a while, but now it is back. And still free ;). It's new home is http://www.disktuna.com.

That's great that it's been updated, but this article would be stronger if it identified even just 1 of the "new features."

As it is, this article just tells current users what we already know--I came here hoping to find out what was new.

Love the program, and typically I appreciate these articles, but this one is not particularly helpful yet.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection now available for Android and iOS 1 month 2 weeks ago rhiannon

I like to use disposable or temporary email addresses when I'm giving personal information to corporations and other online entities that I don't want to have my personal information.
If the Android version is the same as the desktop version, no ads appear if you are disconnected..........not something that's likely with a cell phone but doable with a tablet type device.
Thanks for the info on AisleRiot, I'm sure other Linux users who don't know about it will find it helpful. :-)

It's a no brainer with very good tutorials and many features to discover!
Just found an Android app for it too!

They also have one for Apple.

Good dig Rob, thanks for sharing! :)

So beginning next year it will have ads, and I have to give my address to Microsoft.

No thanks, AisleRiot runs fine on my Linuxes and has dozens of game versions.
