Find and Copy Special Characters to Your Clipboard With This Free Online App 1 month 2 days ago Krunk

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.

@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.

Best VPN Services for 2019 1 month 3 days 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.

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.

Find and Copy Special Characters to Your Clipboard With This Free Online App 1 month 3 days 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.

Find and Copy Special Characters to Your Clipboard With This Free Online App 1 month 3 days 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.

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

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

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.

Best Free Media Player 1 month 2 weeks ago George.J
PotPlayer now offers bundled ads (Avast/McAfee etc) during installation. The offer is a bit confusing because you can't press decline as the offer is still attached to accepting that you have read the privacy policy. You have to uncheck the box and then press Accept. Better still you can get an alternative ad-free installer that I've updated in the guide. Go to this VideoHelp page  and download PotPlayer ad-free (will be one version behind)
 
Certain things you can do to avoid nasty bundled ads in general are
  1. Turn off internet when installing stuff
  2. Use a simple firewall like Simplewall to restrict/block internet access with a simple click for program installers, softwares or apps on your PC etc. 
  3. Use Unchecky to automatically clear off any checkboxes during software installation.

Download Music From Soundcloud for Free 1 month 3 weeks ago scribbler

SoundCloud DOES have a download feature, that can be "turned on" by the artist when they upload their tracks. Basically, from what I've read here, this program is meant to bypass that feature..meaning it's encouraging people to "Steal" the very tracks which an artist doesn't want to be downloaded..and that's their right..it's their work after all.

Basically, if a person turns on "Download" on their track, then that's cool..but "ripping" other peoples work without their permission, when they only intended that work to be listened to and not downloaded, isn't really supportive of the artist in question and more than a little selfish on the pat of the person doing the ripping. We're basically talking about theft here.

Gizmo....Thanks for scaring the crap out of me. I've have been following Tech Alert for 30 some years (not a typo) just don't want people to figure out how old I am. From the bottom of my heart I THANK YOU for all the excellent advice you've given over the years. I always told my clients "if they didn't do anything else sign-up to Gizmo's Tech Alert" so many did and I was always told how useful they found your website. The thing is that 98% of my clients were single parents with God's Special kids or otherwise known physically or mentally challenged. I myself have been disabled for years so I really counted on donated hardware and software so when I had the parts I would build and give them a system totally free. I don't think I could have done it without the freeware or articles on your website. So truly I'm glad your site will still be around but those of us that's been around for a while need to slow down too. Thanks for all you've done to help me over the years...miss you is an under statement. God Bless and Keep You. Michael

Sorry I wasn't clearer.

In Windows Explorer, navigate to the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ folder.
Click on the HOSTS file (may or may not be capitalized).

When you're asked what program you want to open the file with, choose Notepad.

Once the HOSTS file has been opened in Notepad and you've made any changes, the file has to be saved.
Go to the File menu at the top of the window and select Save As...
Notepad will ask to save it as hosts and as a .txt file - click Save
(Notepad automatically saves all files as .txt files)

Notepad will want to save the file to the original location:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\

If you try to save the file to the original location (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\), you'll get a message saying the file can't be saved to that location, and probably asking if you want to save it to Documents instead.
(I'm not running Windows 7 so the specifics may be a bit different but they will be in approximately the same place with similar wording)
Since the file can't be saved in the original location, save the file as hosts.txt in a location where you can find it again like Desktop, Documents, Downloads, etc.

If you saved it to the Desktop, go to the to Desktop, right click on the file and select Copy.

If you've saved it to another location, use Windows Explorer to open the folder where the saved file is located.
Highlight the file. From the File menu at the top, select File then Copy. You can also right click the file and choose Copy.

Navigate to the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ folder using Windows Explorer.
From the File menu at the top, select Paste. You can also right click inside the window where the files are listed and choose Paste.
You may need to provide permission to save the file to that folder.
Once the file is pasted, it should appear as hosts.txt in the window.

Right click on host.txt file. Select Rename. Delete the file extension, the part that says .txt.
Hit Enter.
You'll probably get a message saying that changing the file extension may make it unusable, and asking if you want to change it. Click Yes.
If you get another message asking if you want to allow the program to make changes to the file, select Yes.

The file name should now say hosts with no extension such as .txt listed.
Exit Windows Explorer by going to the File menu and select Close, or close the folder using the X in the upper right corner of the window. That's it.

Hmmmm. I'm no expert but it seems to me that since it's the Logitech Unifying Receiver that's getting the firmware update, it wouldn't impact which Logitech mouse or keyboard was being used. I would think Dell, Microsoft, HP and Lenovo would be responsible for fixing the issue.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's discouraging. :(

One solution I've seen is to install the update by inserting the dongle in a Widnows computer and run the update from there.

Thank you for this information! I have a Dell mouse, and couldn't find an update on their website (lots of others in the series, but not mine), so called them. I was told that since my laptop is an Acer, I have to contact Acer to update my Dell mouse. This seems very strange to me.

Nothing for Linux. Again. Typical for Logitech.
