Unblock Copy and Paste in Chrome and Firefox 1 month 2 days ago rhiannon

I can't speak to the developers intent. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I understand not using the add-on because of its name.
I see that particular word many places I wouldn't expect to see it - a cookbook title comes to mind, and other titles.
I see it increasingly used in the titles of articles from mainstream sites, which surprises me.
Here in the USA it appears to have become a part of the standard vocabulary for people in certain age groups and doesn't seem to have the same assocations/connotations for those groups that it does for those of us in older age groups.

Unblock Copy and Paste in Chrome and Firefox 1 month 2 days ago MisterLee

Why was it necessary for the addon author to name his creation with a vulgar title?
Would it not have conveyed the same message with "Don't mess with paste"?
I am sure many more would be willing to install his app with this tamer title.
Personally, I am unwilling to install with its present naming.
Have we really stooped this low for this to be acceptable?

It's not too late to get a free Windows 10 upgrade 1 month 3 days ago rhiannon

I respect your decision not to upgrade, we all make decisions about what works for us and we're all different. Plenty of room for everybody at the table. :)
LTSB does seem to be problematic for non Enterprise users to obtain. There's some discussion about it's lack of updates being a security issue. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've seen suggestions that O&O ShutUp10 can accomplish much of what LTSB does by default (adapt your security settings, protect your privacy, control location services, control Windows Updates, not pass on your user data and diagnostics).
It's a good program and has been written up here by Rob.
If you have to upgrade at some point it might be an option.
Ads can be disabled, for now at least, and some other annoyances/issues as well. 

I'm not suggesting that anyone upgrade, or not. That's up to each individual. My goal is to provide enough information so that everyone can decide what's comfortable for them and pass along any other information that might be of use.

I am saying that many of the concerns I've had about Windows 10 can be dealt with by changing settings in Windows 10 (ads) or third party software that has enough user history over time that I consider it reliable. Reliable enough that I would be comfortable moving my main system from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 if that's what I decided to do.
Microsoft has responded to some user input and made enough changes in areas of concern that those concerns aren't an issue for me anymore.

Updates are an issue for me too because of limited internet speed and data caps. Any Windows feature upgrade goes way over my data allowance and if that happens, my connection is throttled to the point that I can't easily retrieve email or load text only websites for quite a while.
My laptop has been running Windows 10 for over a year, and I haven't had any issues with updates being installed unless I choose to install them.

Other of us are happily running Windows 7 and will continue to do so for as long as possible, and that's ok too. :)

To be blunt - there is no way on god's earth that I would willingly upgrade to WIN 10 (see the probs amply and accurately described below) BUT as another poster mentioned, sooner or later you're going to have to (or go LINUX...nooooo).

This is NOT to decry this article, it is a good headsup, but I would far prefer something on how to get hold of a particular OFFICIAL version of WIN 10 -

Windows 10 LTSB

in which it is said, there are no forced "ads" AND you can stop upgrades or delay them till a time of your choosing (recommended). However obtaining this version is problematic as, it would appear, MS wants to call a halt on user's who want genuine choice on how they run their PC.

I simply cannot afford a system that may be borked with no notice by the WIN 10 policy of forced upgrades.

Thanks for those patch sites: it's good to know they exist if I ever need them.

I always take the latest updates but I am a confident user of Windows so most of the fears don't bother me. Over many years using Windows, the most intractable problem that I've had with taking the latest updates is not that an update causes me problems but that the update install does not complete and I've been stuck in a loop of repeated attempts to install.

I'm been running on 1809 since it was available for manual install. It has given me a few productivity and performance improvements which I am benefiting from. I would like to install it on my other computers but I had neglected to keep the downloaded files so I'm stuck waiting for Microsoft to re-release it.

After I installed 1809, I was immediately able to confirm that I hadn't lost any files because I use FreeFileSync to keep a local (i.e. on the same computer) copy of my files. All that I needed to do was to run the sync job to confirm that no files needed copying.

It's not too late to get a free Windows 10 upgrade 1 month 1 week ago rhiannon

Windows 10 seems to be having more issues than previous versions for a variety of reasons.
Microsoft pulled the latest feature upgrade (1809) not long after it was released. It's still up in the air as to when it will be rolled out. Some issues with the 1809 feature upgrade include the deletion of personal files (documents and photos) and blue screen errors.
The Windows 7 monthly rollup was causing blue screen errors, so issues aren't confined to Windows 10. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is the reason I wait to install patches and feature upgrades (the Windows 10 twice a year upgrade that contains new features and fixes) until the issues have been worked out. I tend to run a release or two behind the current feature update for that reason. I've done the same thing with every version of Windows I've used, starting with Windows 3.1. I wait until new updates and upgrades get the bugs worked out and then install them. 

The monthly Office and Windows patches don't usually cause much trouble and this would be a good time to install them since the 1809 release is on hold.

My favorite places to keep up with what's going on with Windows is Woody Leonhard's column over at Computerworld, and Susan Bradley's Master Patch list at Woody Leonhard's website. If you want to know anything about the patches for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Server 2012, Windows 7 and Office, whether they are safe to install, any issues being tracked, their status and what they are patching, Susan is the best person to check with for the latest status of Microsoft product patches.

It's not too late to get a free Windows 10 upgrade 1 month 1 week ago Australia

I have said for a long time, to avoid mandatory Windows updates. Similarly upgrading your current computer to Windows 10 has a lot of risk, for not much true benefit/productivity improvement
To show that my perpetual caution regarding Windows is well founded:

Google: 'Microsoft pulls Windows 10 October 2018 Update'

Microsoft has stopped distributing its latest Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
“We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating,” says Microsoft on its support site for Windows Update.
Microsoft has struggled with the quality of Windows updates recently.
The company delayed its Windows 10 April 2018 Update earlier this year over Blue Screen of Death issues

Scroll the window under the mouse pointer with this free and useful app 1 month 1 week ago rhiannon

I haven't tested it in Windows 10 on all my programs, I like Wizmouse because it works in windows that don't normally support scrolling. If the Windows 10 built in feature will scroll in windows that don't support scrolling I would use that. I'll re-enabled Wizmouse and see if Windows 10 supports scrolling in the same windows.

You can disable Wizmouse from the tray icon, just click on the icon and uncheck Enabled. That will leave the Windows 10 function active.

I used WizMouse for years in the past but never paid attention to the fact that it must have stayed with my different computers and many updates and upgrades. It is installed on my present computer and I could have updated it but checked my settings in Windows 10 and it's already turned on there so one or the other or both must be controlling this function. Does that make any sense? Is there any benefit to using one or the other or both? Will one defer to the other as the dominant application? :-)

It's not too late to get a free Windows 10 upgrade 1 month 1 week ago Australia

If you are running Windows 7 or Windows 8, and you are happy with your current hardware and software, I recommend you do not upgrade
There are no productivity benefits to be gained to offset the incompatibilities that can easily arise
Remember that Windows 10 will insist on upgrading you to the latest 2018 version
Microsoft wont then provide you a guarantee that your current hardware or software WONT STOP WORKING COMPLETELY
Have some hardware from 2014 that works perfectly? A new operating system four years later can easily render that printer for example, unusable
Hardware manufacturers want you to buy the latest hardware product, and often do NOT provide drivers for your old software or hardware.
Also assume that the update may erase some of tour personal files and documents. This may not happen, but again Microsoft cannot guarantee against loss of your existing photos, files and data. So before upgrading search your entire C drive for any personal files and make a copy of all these files
You have been warned !
Windows 10 is the future so we all will be using it soon enough. Just upgrade safely without regrets.

It's not too late to get a free Windows 10 upgrade 1 month 1 week ago rhiannon

Those are valid concerns.
A few things...if you decided to upgrade, Windows 10 has a rollback utility that lets you roll back to your previous operating system as long as you rollback within ten days. Most, but not all, rollbacks go smoothly.
Creating a disk image before you make changes is a good idea. Backing up device drivers is also a good idea, and checking the availability of drivers (especially for peripherals like printers) for any new operating system before changing or upgrading is a good practice.

Many vendors, particularly printers for some reason, don't update drivers for older models. This has been the case with other Windows version upgrades in the past, so it's not a new issue.
Microsoft isn't responsible for driver updates and operating system compatibility, it's always been the responsiblity of the vendor to make sure their drivers are compatible with any operating system that they make drivers for. It's on us to check if there are compatible drivers when changing or upgrading operating systems. For example, many vendors don't have drivers for Linux, which is one reason I haven't migrated.
There were no drivers for my printer when Windows 7 came out and there were never driver updates to Windows 7 for that printer. It was get a new printer or not upgrade.

You can control what updates you want to get using Windows Update MiniTool. You can also defer major or version upgrades in Windows 10 settings. 
You can turn upgrades on and off and set some connections to metered using Windows 10 Update Switch.
You can block the ads that appear in Explorer and other places.

I'm not suggesting that anyone upgrade or not upgrade - I'm saying there are tools to manage most of the issues in Windows 10 that are problematic for most of us. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Edit: Windows 10 has a history of problems with updates - everything from making systems unusable to personal data deletion. Best practice is not to install the twice a year version upgrade until the bugs are worked out. We are the beta testers for Microsoft now - they get some feedback from the Insiders program but most problems are worked out after the upgrade is issued and the issues surface for many users. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I haven't seen anything official from Microsoft about that, but it's been mentioned in several blogs, so I don't know. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The shrug is a unicode emoji (U+1F937). As far as I know there's no way to reproduce it easily in
Windows since it makes use of a character on the Japanese keyboard. I've looked high and low for a way to reproduce this in Windows, if you find one, let me know.
You can use an AutoHotKey script or other text expander to insert it, but I just insert it from the clipboard utility I use.
You can copy and paste the one above, or you can find it some places on the internet where you can copy and paste, like this site: https://emojipedia.org/shrug/

It's always good to use the backup option in Ccleaner or back up the registry before using another registry cleaner.

I like to use the free version of Resplendence Registrar Registry Manager if I'm making changes in the registry. I'll add that unless you're using a known registry hack that can be undone or know what you're doing it's best not to make any changes in the registry.

Years ago they said CCleaner was conservative and safe to use (also regarding the registry cleaning part), contrary to some other registry cleaners that are more aggressive. I have used CCleaner (generally and the registry part) for years without any problems (as far as I know ;-)). In CCleaner there is an option shown before making changes to the registry - to backup your registry. I always use that option now.

Windows Registry: What it is, and what you can do with it 1 month 2 weeks ago classicggma65

I have had my hand slapped by the Windows Techs when I allowed my CCleaner to clean the registry. Had not idea what it was or what to do with it so just allowed it to be cleaned...and I deleted a couple things that caused problems in my Win7, my Media Player and IE. Since then I do not clean it and do not touch it. They told me there should be no reason to clean it or change anything in it unless I really Know What I Am Doing. Needless to say, I still am a bit tech challenged and will never attempt to change anything in it. Some of the items listed can be changed elsewhere in your settings. Thanx for the info on exactly what it is and does Rhiannon.

Thanks for this article!
When I opened Gizmo's site, I was met with this message:

"Oops, it looks like you are using an ad blocker.
We work hard to provide you our software news and we keep our ads non-intrusive.
Please support us keeping our content free by disabling your ad blocker."

I'm using ABP - Ad Blocker Plus - for Chrome, but I thought I had deactivated it for Gizmo's site. Well, it was easy to deactivate it (again). You just have to click on the ABP icon, then click on "Trust site". You don't have to disable your ad blocker completely, you can do it just for this site (and other sites which you want to support). Other ad blockers may do it differently, but I believe all have the option of "white-listing" sites.

Get the classic Windows 7 and 8 Calculator in Windows 10 1 month 2 weeks ago Australia

A calculator without brackets ( ) is not very useful imho
Apart from functionality, the key feature of a calculator for me, is large buttons, to prevent eyestrain
No point having a calculator with buttons so small you strain your vision everytime you use it !

During my search for a simple free Windows calculator over many years, I was surprised just how many poorly designed calculators there are
And surprised how few good free calculators there are

My recommendation first appeared in 2014 in TechSupportAlert, in the "Best Free Calculator" section
My preference is 'eCalc', which has two Windows versions, a basic calculator, and also a scientific calculator
Both versions are simple to use, with a good layout, and each can do more than just add, subtract, multiply and divide
Google: eeweb .com tools download

In 2014, I recommended both ECalc and Moffsoft FreeCalc (Google: moffsoft .com freecalc)

Both recommendations were free Windows calculators with noncluttered interfaces, and just as important: clear, LARGE BUTTONS, to protect your vision
As with all my recommendations over many years on TechSupportAlert, I have no affiliation to the recommended freeware

You'll find it as soon as you try it. They only seem to really offer the platinum version now... trial version (no key) only does 5 minutes of video. There may be special circumstances, like for you to do a real review, to get it for free, but the average joe, nope. pay for a license that may die one day as it forces you to upgrade to a version you need a new key for.

I still use a calculator program that doesn't include brackets because it works in RPN (Reverse Polish Notation) in the same way that early Hewlett Packard hand-held calculators worked, back in the 1970s. If you got used to using RPN (not everyone did), it was much more consistent than other manufacturer's systems with brackets.

The Windows 7/8 Calculator does have brackets, but not in the basic mode. Go to VIEW and select Programmer (or Alt+3) or Scientific (Alt+2) and you get a more advanced Calculator that have Brackets.

LastPass Not Working in Firefox? It's Not Just You 2 months 19 hours ago Nodrog

Clearing history is user-definable but the default settings include cookies and active log-ins so unless the user changes that then I think it's possible that simply opting to not remember history might prevent them being set, or atleast interfere with proper functioning.

Good to know about the cookies, thanks. I'm not understanding why setting history to not remember would make a difference to the cookies that LastPass sets. I've cleared site history (everything, not just recent) and cache and LastPass still has me logged in.

LastPass Not Working in Firefox? It's Not Just You 2 months 22 hours ago Nodrog

Hi Rhiannon

The LastPass extension sets four cookies, has its own cache and uses a "hidden" cookie-type file under a GUID to store user preferences and probably the trusted device details, so setting the browser to block or remove history and site info would, I think, be bound to interfere wth LastPass functionality.

LastPass Not Working in Firefox? It's Not Just You 2 months 1 day ago grantus

I'm using Firefox 62.0.3 (64 bit) on a Mac laptop running High Sierra. I was getting this same issue where when clicking the Lastpass icon in the top right you should see a menu expand. It was not expanding and only showed a small white box.

I noticed that I had my browsing history set to Never Remember history in Privacy & Security settings. This turned out to be the issue. As soon as I changed to Remember history Firefox asked me to restart. Once Firefox had reopened Lastpass was working fine just like on Chrome.

Has anybody else had this? Why would Lastpass require the browser to remember history for the application to work?
