How to Add a Drive to the Windows 10 Taskbar 1 hour 5 min ago BobT55

Even easier - Right click on taskbar, select toolbars / new toolbar. Navigate to the drive you want and click select folder. Drive is now available on right side of the taskbar. Even better - You can also create a folder anywhere on a drive, fill it with your favorite shortcuts, including drives/folders/apps, and select that folder for the new toolbar and you get a convenient access to all your favorites!

Use Two-Factor Authentication To Enhance Your Account Security 1 week 1 day ago rogerms

It is important to use 2FA when possible. I'd suggest using Authy instead of Google Authenticator though. It allows synchronization with Authy on other devices, secured by a password. Most importantly, it makes it easy to setup the authenticator on a new device, no need to update all of the accounts where it is used. And yes, make sure that password is strong and protected.

Best Free High Dynamic Range (HDR) Software 1 week 4 days ago Fairportfan

One reason that i resisted digital for so long - bought my first DSLR in 2011, bought my first SLR in 1969 - was the simple fact that film {while limited in comparison to the human eye} had {and still has, really} a dynamic range and resolution greater than any but the most expensive digital gear out there.

I note that even some consumer-level DSLRs have reached the point where, in many cases. it is the lens, rather than the sensor, that limits performance.

I really like my Nikon 5300...

Where to Download Offline Installers for Firefox and Chrome 2 weeks 9 hours ago mchldpy

at rhiannon,
Thanks for the Chrome info.
Firefox is pulling off of the https://ftp.mozilla.org/ website.
Anything made by Mozilla, from the first version to the latest version, all flavors (Win, Linux, Mac, x32 and x64) all the Languages, offline and online (stub) installers. Most of the (older) versions have a 2015 date as a " last date modified" but I think that's when they were added to the FTP list and version 42 on up have the Public Release Date as the last modified date.
Hope that made sense.

thanks again,
michael

There's a real need for these types of programs. I've used a few over the last 20 years or so. The one I currently use is Desktop Restore. It's a shell program that puts Save Desktop and Restore Desktop in the right-click menu. After you add a new icon you simply right click and Save Desktop then when something rearranges your icons you right-click and select Restore Desktop.

I've used Iconoid for years. The advantage it has, is that it doesn't have to be disabled to put an icon where you want it. However, you do have to tell it to save icon positions when you have the layout just the way you want it. The most needed options are available within a right-click context menu. There are some other options too, You can find it here: https://www.sillysot.com/. I have been using it since Windows 95, I think.
Please note: "Iconoid works on Windows 8 & 10 but hasn't been extensively tested on either."

Easily Download YouTube Videos With This Free Program for Windows 2 weeks 6 days ago Geert

For whom it may interest: here's how you can download a video or only the music without installing anything:
When you're watching a YouTube video and you want to download it (or just the music), in the address bar of your browser type 'pp' after the 'e' of YouTube and press enter.
Eg. you're watching the video at the web addres https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Hh6qJuA5jg, then update the address to https://www.youtubePP.com/watch?v=6Hh6qJuA5jg and choose your download.
Easy as pie.

[Edit]: It looks like it doesn't work anymore. (Sorry I didn't try it anymore before posting) Too bad. :-(
Most of the time that kind of services don't last long. On the other hand, no doubt others will take over.

How To Stop Desktop Icons from Rearranging in Windows 2 weeks 6 days ago rhiannon

It depends on your icon settings - if they are set to align icons to grid, auto arrange icons, or both it will place icons in different places.

If only auto arrange is checked it will add a new icon to the next space in a group of icons.

If only align to grid is checked, it added a new icon to the approximate center of the screen.

With both align to grid and auto arrange unchecked it placed the new icon in the approximate center of the screen.

Whatever configuration your desktop is when you installed it is how it will stay. If you add a new icon and want it somewhere else, double click the icon in the system tray to disable it, move the icon where you want it, and double click the program icon in the system tray again to lock the desktop.

Thanks for this. I've tried everything I could find since 2005 but nothing actually (stopped) them from moving. Most everything put them back pretty good. (but still a pain in the buTTocks)
I noticed you talking about new icons go to the next available grid space ... but it will lock in a non-grid type format or personal preference-like pattern, right?

Have you tried right clicking on the +Add to Firefox button, choosing Save Link As, download the xpi, open Add-Ons from the settings menu (three horizontal lines top right), click the Gear icon, and from the dropdown choosing Install Add-on From File?

If that doesn't work, you might try an earlier version of the add-on, available from the add-on page.
