A Quick Way to Change or Check your DNS Setting 2 years 3 months ago twigginsfl

I use a tool called namebench. Google it. If I try to post the url, it gets blocked. It is more complicated than the currently discussed tools, but the data it provides is more detailed.

A Really Easy Way To Jump To Folders 3 months 1 week ago toktok

A file management system like the excellent Total Commander (previously Windows Commander, a modernised version of the old Norton Commander) has all these facilities built in: favorite folders, recent folders, and a lot more. (Free, with a nag screen).

A Really Easy Way To Jump To Folders 3 months 1 week ago toktok

Thank you for the tip. I prefer using a dual pane file manager which has - among many other things - favorite and recent folders. You can even store favorite double pane folders - which is very useful if you often have to copy files between two specific folders. In the list of Gizmo's category "Best File Manager" I'd recommend Unreal Commander (which is like a free clone of Total Commander).

[i]It's hard to believe that in the early days of MS-DOS, before Windows was even thought of, there was no support for folders or directories on a disk. [/i]Are you sure???
I am fairly certain that directories and folders were around before Windows.
a) there is a limit of 256 entries in root.
b) products such as Xtree were around before Windows.
c) why would DOS limit it on PCs when the concept had been around for years under DOS on other machines.

Yes Burn-IT they were around before Windows. I think the editor refers to MS-DOS 1.0, a renamed version of QDOS in 1981, which did not support a hierarchical file system. It was only added to MS-DOS 2.0 in 1983. (Ref: MS-DOS: A Brief Introduction; The MS-DOS File System)
 
According to Wikipedia, the first release of XTree was in 1985, i.e. after MS-DOS had supported the hierarchical file system.

Great utility Rob.
I have used this program for the last 7 years, and it is indispensable
Always has ranked in the top 5 freeware utilities on my computers

If you have a lot of data, with lots of file and folders, these programs are great for navigation
For example, when you are downloading files, and you are using the "Save as..." dialog box

An alternative is 'Listary', which is also found on reputable freeware sites

There wasn't that many files (or even clusters) that would fit on a floppy-disk which was the standard storage device for such microcomputers. The floppy-disk provided relatively random data access and was a step up from sequential access devices like cassette tape drives and stringy floppy drives.

A tree/hierarchical file system was only needed once there were larger storage devices like hard disks.

DOS as an acronym for Disk Operating System is a very common name for many different computer operating systems that have not much in common except their name. While MS-DOS and PC-DOS are often shortened to DOS, they are no relation to any of the following operating systems (OS) - all of which I used in the 1980s.

  • Mainframe OS like IBM DOS (DOS/360).
  • Minicomputer OS like DEC DOS and Datapoint DOS.
  • Microcomputer OS  including Apple DOS, CBM (Commodore) DOS, Cromenco DOS, Ohio Scientific Pico DOS, and Atari DOS.

How can everyone overlook TRS-DOS as used on the TRS-80 (affectionately known as the Trash-80) from Tandy Radio Shack?

Aside from that, unless the article has been edited since the first post by Burn-IT, at least by the time I saw it, the reference was to "the early days of MS-DOS", also known as PC-DOS when purchased from IBM, not merely "DOS".

Anyone remember the CP/M?

It could be used on many different types of computers before the DOS arrived but many of the commands were the same.

Maybe I am missing something but a quick look seems to just bring up nothing more that Explorer and the Quick Access menu which I have used since the inception with W7 if I recall correctly. I have Free Commander XE but have not spent time learning it but should. I have almost all the time close to half a dozen Explorer windows on the TB which allows me quick access to things I might be working on at some specific time. Things I might use frequently, I simply pin to the QA and then can drag/drop between panes when moving or copying files.

Yup, Nirsofer's Nirsoft has a tool for just about anything you might need or want for Windows.

@Rob, - After months of proper functioning, one of my laptops began having the same exact problem which (after much digging and troubleshooting) I only managed to fix by uninstalling my third-party Windows Firewall utility, (Binisoft's "Windows Firewall Control - WFC") and resetting Windows Firewall to defaults; uninstalling the WiFi adapter and *deleting* its driver; then, rebooting and reinstalling the adapter, followed by the firewall utility. So far, after about six hours, all remains well . ~;-)

My difficulties began while I was traveling and repeatedly switched back-and-forth between two ISP's (via tethering to my phone) without first shutting down the firewall; and perhaps, even rebooting for good measure. I know you know how to fix your problem but I hope sharing my experience is helpful.

A Really Nice Office Suite For Free 1 year 1 month ago HenWin

A couple of things to be said.

First as far as anti-virus/malware, there's lots of good, FREE apps out there that are much better rated than Windows Defender. To name a few: Avira (www.avira.com), Avast (www.avast.com), or AVG (www.avg.com). Then there are the 2 anti-malware packages that are highly rated: Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org) and Super Anti-Spyware (www.superantispyware.com).

As far as Microsoft is concerned, you can get Office 365 (https://products.office.com/en-us/compare-microsoft-office-products) for as little as $7 (US) / month for the Personal Edition OR $10/month for the Home edition, which covers 5 users. If you purchase a year's contract, then the per month price is lower (Personal edition $70/year and the Home edition, $100/year). If you don't want Office 365, then you can get your own copy of Office 2010, 2013 or 2016 via online vendors, and the price maybe considerably different than what you quoted.

I have found that when looking for prices of almost anything online, the Google shopping bot (https://www.google.com/shopping) will find the best/lowest prices *and* reliable vendors.

And no, I don't work for any of the aforementioned companies!.

PS I am a control freak, and W10 is the exact opposite.
I was going to live with Windows Defender, but discovered it is doing Scans (even inside Zip files), even when I have not told it to do a scan.
A new machine may not notice that, but it slows the hades out of my older PC, and I like to control when it does it's scans.
Also there are occasions when one wishes to disable the anti virus. It is 5 times easier to disable Avast Free, and it stays off until I tell it to return. Windows Defender will turn itself on when it feels like it.

(Should note, though, there are about 47K items in my ClipMate clipboard, would want to be able to migrate them.)

A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 6 months 2 days ago tormozit

Ditto is really technically good, fast and light. But it has minimalistic non-standart UI and some other issues for me...
I tryed to begin using Ditto many times in last 10 years but unreliable execution of Paste command in non english input language kills my attempts every time. So my Clip Angel was done with big attention to reliability, compatibility and conveniency of main functions - find the right piece of data and send paste with it.
I could not find in Ditto way to quickly switch on/off word wrap. Clip Angel has many hot switches (tool buttons) allowing quick change many combination of modes.
Ditto UI requires to manually switch focus to filter field by pressing TAB to begin filtering. Clip Angel does it automatically - pressing UP/DOWN/PgDown/PgUp you select clip in list and in the same time pressing symbol keys, Backspace, RIGHT/LEFT, ... you change text filter.
I could not find how to turn on HTML rendering in Ditto. Clip Angel has good support for HTML rendering with switched on "Native formatting" mode.

Hi, thanks for your reply and for a nice piece of freeware : )

When I first tried your program I saw no graphic previews at all, just locations the same as in the left hand pane. After experimenting a bit further though, I've found that graphic previews are shown for jpg files from my hard drive but not if I right click and copy an image in Firefox. For png files on my hard drive, ClipAngel shows previews for some but not all. It's not a big issue though, it's not something I would use often anyway.

The preview as it is, now that I have found it, is fine. No need at all to change that in my opinion.

I did wonder though, is there or could there be, a button to show/hide the right hand preview pane and only display the list? I know I can resize it but a toolbar button or hotkey would be handy.

Now I understand that you are talking about images in HTML clips. They can have many ways of linking to binary data. That's why some of them are shown always. some are show for a while (from temp files) and some are not shown at all. Many factors may influence this behavour. So if you want reliably copy image from browser you have to execute "Copy image" command in the context menu of image or capture it directly with screenshot capture soft.

I use Ditto which works fine for me, and I'd like to give a warning about clipboard managers in general.

If you use a clipboard manager to copy a password, that password will remain in the clipboard manager until it is deleted. So, if you do use a clipboard manager to copy and paste passwords, immediately remove that password from the clipboard manager.

view
A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 1 month 2 weeks ago tormozit

Very good advice. But if you use good password manager (like KeePass) which can set Clipboard Viever Ignore Format (CVIF) while coping password to clipboard, then good clipboard manager (like ClipAngel or Ditto or ClipDiary) will understand this flag and will not capture password. Discussion about CVIF for Ditto https://sourceforge.net/p/ditto-cp/discussion/287511/thread/2185c0e1/ . And do not forget to turn on CVIF in options of KeePass 2.X (it is off by default)

Very weak reason to choose clipboard manager.

There are many clipboard managers that allow to do this (for ex. Ditto, ClipAngel).

Just kidding, all. At 70 years old, I cannot be bought and anyone that knows me, knows that. My wife says I do not "have a filter", nor can my opinion be bought. Most of the time, it gets me into trouble. Not this time, however.

Are you REALLY going to think WOT is reliable for programs like this?

To be honest, that is mad.

I'm always going to give you a five just for the time you spent researching and writing the article, but I sometimes wonder where you find these, so called jewels/gems? I put no Trust in "Web of Trust" and I could find very little information about this offering. And the little I did find gave me no confidence in it. I do trust "VirusTotal", for that most part, but I'm not going to download and install a program just based on that.

Thanks for the heads up; I'll stick with "Team Viewer".

"...I'm not going to download and install a program just based on that."

From the article:

"It's also portable so will work straight away without needing to be installed."

Hey Rob,

Any feedback on AeroAdmin?

http://www.aeroadmin.com/en/

I've been using it for a while now & works well-- also, free for business! No installation required-- the other party downloads the exe & accepts the remote, that's all there is to it (very similar to Teamviewer).

Cheers

I did not see a link for a portable version, only a 32 or 64-bit msi.

Agree with HmS-PA. Appreciate Team Viewer allowing personal use of this app.

Try Team Viewer. It is a free for personal use application. Really works well and you have full control to access from anywhere.

I have Team Viewer on my Samsung (Android) phone, and laptop, so I can connect to my home PC at any time.
