Freemake Video Converter 2 months 1 week ago k31thw

Surprised that this software is still identified as "Editor's Choice" as it is totally unusable! As I said EIGHT months ago, it now splashes text across the middle of the screen all the way through the video. Totally unacceptable for software that is supposed to be free.

I had forgotten about this and, needing to burn a DVD, I downloaded it again today (version 4.1.10.311). Burnt the DVD and got the same stupid message as before! This is not freeware this is an unusable demo.

Please delist it immediately! Seriously, I have always trusted this site and have downloaded many excellent programs. But this is just sh1te, rubbish, unusable, waste of time. ANd a blit on your reputation that something this crap is still listed.

My PCs are old.
I have XP in one, and W10 in the other
When using W10, they had to remove all weapons from my house in case I killed myself (way too much crap running in the background)
Thus I use XP 98% of the time.
If there are others using XP, I have good news and bad news -
- Good, The latest version 3 will install into XP\
- Bad, it says it is in evaluation mode for next month.
I will write to their support, to see if they will give us a key

Haven’t had a chance to use this File manager

The most important feature of file management is a search function

Windows OS after Windows XP have had an inferior file search function, with no explanation or apology. As a result, searching for a particular file in a large folder is clunky and inefficient

Really I will only consider a new file manager if it has a good file search feature

Find and Copy Special Characters to Your Clipboard With This Free Online App 2 months 1 day ago rhiannon

The clipboard isn't really visible. It's like an invisible holding area. Put your cursor where you want the item you copied to appear, and paste it using either Ctrl - V or right click and paste.

There are clipboard managers that will show everything you've copied so it can be reused. The clipboard is erased if you turn off your device. Copying something new erases whatever is in the clipboard.

view
Find and Copy Special Characters to Your Clipboard With This Free Online App 2 months 1 day ago rhiannon

I think that depends on how you work and your preferences. I like having the characters in tabs where they are sorted by type.
They are larger than the character map on a computer monitor so they are easier to see. I find it easier and faster, but that's me.
I have it bookmarked on my browser toolbar. The only issue I have is that it can't be used offline, while character map is built in.

Of possible interest to other Linux users there are a variety of clipboard managers available depending on which desktop environment your particular distro ships with. This one is for the Gnome Shell and the example shown is Zorin 15 Core. Just install the needed extension in Firefox first and then install this and other shell extensions directly from your browser.

Best VPN Services for 2019 2 months 4 hours ago lowndesw

"There's no such thing as a free lunch." Or a "free" VPN service. They all cost money to operate and then someone wants a return on their investment, too. So, they can either sell their service to customers, sell ads, or sell the harvested data about their customers, or any combination of the three. I don't mind paying for a service that I want, especially in this situation.

I've been a TSA (Gizmo's) subscriber since the early 90's and appreciate their work and hope they are richly compensated for it, somehow. I know they started doing some nonintrusive ads a while back and don't mind that one bit. I've always found their software evaluations to be spot-on and unbiased, plus very educational, along with the comments. No affiliation with anything computer, just a grateful fan.

@courtenayguy, if you're using Windows 10 with October 2018 Update or newer, pressing Windows key+V shows you the Clipboard content and history, you can then paste from it.

Yes, that is a nice new feature in Win 10. I like that you can pin some items permanently to the clipboard (like this \_(ツ)_/¯ ) which replaces a 3rd party app I previously used. I just "clear all" in the "..." menu to reveal my pinned characters.

15 Useful Windows Run Commands 1 month 2 weeks ago mchldpy

Interesting bunch of comments.
I've often thought that saying the word "control" was faster than pushing one or two keys. While I believe using the keyboard is faster by far than pointing and clicking, I still spend 99% of my time with the mouse in my clutch. The learning curve to actually totally navigate and perform by the keyboard alone is steep. I can't jump columns or to different areas of a page, give up, grab my mouse and finish what I'm trying to do.
Vocal control would be fast with the right s/ware. I use Dragon but I don't consider it a really good solution for "Controlling" s/ware. (for lack of the correct terminology) Is there something besides dictation type apps or has anything been written?
Maybe I should go back to my porn searching and not worry about it?

15 Useful Windows Run Commands 1 month 2 weeks ago rhiannon

I'm not aware of any software that would allow the functions of a mouse and keyboard to be carried out through voice commands. Someone here may know if anything were available.
I'm not one of those people who can navigate everything via keyboard, though I tend towards keyboard for a lot of things - for example I use the space bar to scroll down web pages instead of the page up key or a mouse. I use Tab to change fields instead of using the mouse.
Highlighting, changing windows, dialog boxes and buttons I use the mouse, unless it's a dialog box with a yes or no option - then I use the arrow keys to highlight the one I want and press enter to select it. I think I'm a mishmash of both. :)

I agree with you on the comments, often they are the most interesting and informative part of the page.
