This Free Online Tool Enlarges and Enhances Images Automatically 3 months 4 days ago mchldpy

at rhiannon,
I successfully captured some fine print on suspected counterfeit KN95 Chinese mask that I was unable to do before trying the app. After uploading the original images saved from the website, they would no longer open in Windows Photo Viewer. (tried it twice, all 4 images corrupted) No biggie, worked just enough that it helped. Thanks for the Tech Treat.

How To Restore Windows Services in Windows 7, 8, and 10 3 months 3 days ago seeker108

Rhiannon, thanks for pointing out this resource. Shawn Brink, the Administrator of the Tenforums site is one of the Rock Stars of Windows tech support. I have consulted his tutorials many times. In fact just a few days ago I used one of his tutorials to do a Repair Install with in-place 'upgrade' of my Win10 desktop, and it worked flawlessly. My gratitude to all those like Shawn and yourself for helping us keep our computers running well.

I'm glad it went mostly ok, I'm not sure what's up with the images being corrupted. I uploaded several images from my phone camera and various images that have been on my system for years, uploaded images I grabbed from several different websites, enlarged and downloaded them with no issues. They opened in Photo Viewer and Ifanview. All in all probably 40-50 images.

Wallpaper Master 3 months 2 days ago miniliq

James Gart's webpage for Wallpaper Master is not responding. I have one on my desktop and one on my laptop, but they have different menus, and I don't know why. Has any developer taken over from James Gart? I've used this program for years. My only complaint is the limit on number of photos that can be in the source file. Otherwise it's great.

If I may clarify with you what's not downloading. Are you clicking on the link at the bottom of the current release box that's titles PowerToysSetup-0.17.0-x64.msi? I've attached a screen shot of the link. It's working for me now, if it doesn't work for you then all I can suggest is trying an earlier version.

Get a New Bing Wallpaper Every Day on Android and Windows 10 2 months 3 weeks ago balaji.ramanathan

I use the Microsoft launcher on my Android smartphone, and that launcher has a feature of presenting a new wallpaper every day. I guess the Bing wallpapers app will allow me to rotate wallpapers every day even if I choose not to use the MS launcher (thought I find the launcher a great combination of feature-richness and simplicity). Does anybody know whether the Bing wallpapers are the same as the daily wallpapers on the launcher? Do they pull from a common pool of pictures or are they completely different?

As budchekov mentioned, the current version from the developer can be downloaded here: https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/.

The link to GitHub is to the download page. There's a box at the top of the page with the Release version in blue. Under the blue Release version is a link to download Powertoys, it has an msi extension. It's very easy to see. I linked there so that no one has look at anything on Github other than where the download link is.

If that doesn't work for you, you can download it and and then upload it to a file service like Firefox Send. Send them the link so they can download it from there. The file can be downloaded by anyone who has the link. There are other services to share large files, Firefox Send is the one I use. You can use any browser to download the file. Firefox is not required.

I am running Window 7 on some of my machines. Obviously I only want to use free alternatives at this time since my main OSs are Windows 8.1 and Linux. I found that Defender is still updated on 7 but it is not an Antivirus solution. Antivirus is still needed. As of May of 2020 I found that Avast has added quite a few nag screens as well as making my 7 machine take an extra 3 to 4 minutes to boot up. I will update if I find an alternate program that is more friendly for Win 7.
