Best Free Media Player for Android 5 months 2 weeks ago Anupam

I agree with you trainman261, exactly my thoughts :). Although yes, the ads now on Mx Player can be a bit annoying, but it still is a very solid good quality player. I can deal with the ads, as long as they don't turn too intrusive.

Best Free Media Player for Android 5 months 2 weeks ago trainman261

I honestly have to say that I didn't find the ads too annoying. I mean yes, there are ads there, but it's not anything intrusive - I draw the line where an ad blocks me from doing something, and that has never happened to me (I use MX as my daily driver). On the other hand, just about everything else is just about perfect - something I can't really say about VLC - I had too many problems with it to recommend it. The comparison with VLC is that the same way one could say that VLC is the de-facto video player for many people on PC, I would recommend MX as the de-facto video player for Android - in my opinion, it's the most solid media player around. If you don't want any ads, this isn't the app for you, but otherwise, I definitely recommend it.

Using Thunderbird For Email? There Are Add-Ins And They're Great. 5 months 2 weeks ago eikelein

David,
Thanks for your reply and - you are welcome.

I have heard so much irrelevant or outright false negativity about Thunderbird that I like to cut in and help or clean the air if I can at all. I have no professional, semi-professional, contractual or financial connection with the Mozilla organisation or anybody involved in Thunderbird's maintenance.

Please send the screen shot as an attachment to ejhprivate@gmail.com. Recently I created this account for personal reasons with the express purpose of being able to "throw away" this account at any time. I will begin tomorrow to check daily for an email from you.

Please let me know what version of Windows your computer runs and if your system is a 32-bit or a 64-bit system.
Just in case you need instructions for the 32 or 64 bit question you find them at

Hi eiklein, thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I will try to add a screenshot of the percent figure showing how much of the Thunderbird folder is used. I searched the internet and most replies say Thunderbird can't be increased. So that confused me. On the settings I have, it is imap. That's all I know because I'm not very good at these things. OK, I'll have to forget the screenshot, I don't know how or if it can be added here. Anyway, it shows 81% full. And I understand we can't post links in Comments. One site says this "How to Increase Your Mailbox Limit in Thunderbird" and that's what I've tried to do.

Best Free Bible Study Software 5 months 2 weeks ago Natnee

Online Bible is really far better than E-sword. At the very least, it deserves a mention in your list. Online Bible isn't the best name, I know, since it's a downloaded program, but it predates a time when "online" didn't necessarily mean on the internet (1995). It's updated regularly and available free at onlinebible.net and most of the modules and study tools are free as well.

It's so much better than most other programs because you can scroll through the entire Bible (no three-click-process to change books); you can search and have all the verses *displayed with the text*, rather than a click-each-reference-to-see-what-it-said, allowing you to search very fast to find what you want; It has a simple and clean interface, and runs on a memory stick.

PS Over the years, every time I went to their site, it was an unsettling challenge, to be sure that I was downloading the free viewer.
Over the last year'ish, it got even harder, as they are pushing a more recent version on to us (with Editor in the name I think).
It is also free, but is not as simple/good as the xchange viewer, and is irritating as there are some pro'ish features lurking around which are trial'ish.

But it cannot carry out the action (not from the want of trying)

I tried different browsers, and anything else I could think of.

As Rob S. wrote in his article about Hemingway:

It's free because it's really a promotional tool for the company's *paid-for offline version*, but the online version is still very useful."

In other words, the desktop app costs money. The browser version is free. Just select the text that is already there in the browser, press delete, and start writing...

Yesterday I had to solve the flash problem after I updated to Firefox 55.0.3 on 64-bit Windows 7. I keep flash set to "Ask to Activate". When I went to a tennis site to watch a US Open match, no flash window appeared and there was no pop-up asking to allow flash. It looked like the Firefox update had broken flash.

On the Firefox plugin roadmap I found this: "Starting with Firefox 55 in August 2017, users must choose which sites are allowed to activate the Flash plugin. Users will have the choice to remember the Flash setting per-site. This change will be rolled out progressively during August and September 2017." On my own Firefox I saw no way to tell Firefox to allow flash on my tennis site.

I solved the problem by setting flash to Always Activate. That was the only way I could get Firefox to let me watch the tennis match. Ironically, the Firefox change to increase security resulted in me having to set my flash to be less secure and run all the time.

Using Thunderbird For Email? There Are Add-Ins And They're Great. 5 months 3 weeks ago eikelein

David,
very seriously, what do you mean with "81% full"?

If you have (an) IMAP account(s) then you may run into a storage limit from you ISP.
If you have (a) POP account(s) all your emails are stored locally - unless you leave them on the server - which would negate the so called "advantages" of IMAP!

I have about 17,000 (17 THOUSAND) emails locally stored. That is according to TreeSize over 3.2GB of net emails.

The Thunderbird folder is in total 3.49GB large.

I have all emails since 1998 in there and it works like day 1.5. The decimal here respects that for example searching through 17,000 emails MUST take longer than through maybe only 1,700 emails.

Is your Trash folder empty? Is your Junk folder empty? Have you compacted the folders?

I thought I know Thunderbird a little but your question really baffles me.

I don't know of a Thunderbird specific limitation. Maybe only that Windows limits file sizes on 32-bit systems. But that is Windows' problem, not Thunderbird's.

Looking forward to your reply.

May I suggest for consideration Visual Studio Code? It's a solid text editor with IntelliSense, debugging capabilities, and git support built right in. It also allows you to place multiple cursors so you can select or edit in multiple spots at the same time. On top of that, it's configurable and extendible beyond belief. There's a pretty vast repository of plugins which can add support for new languages, color themes, network support, organization, you name it. You can also fine tune how the editor runs and change up all of the keyboard bindings to suit your tastes. If you've ever used Sublime Text, it's a lot like that, but with a much more user friendly interface in terms of features.

Top Rated
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/extensions/?sort=rating

Most Popular
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/extensions/?sort=users

These are some of the extensions and addons I usually install when setting up Thunderbird for myself or for a client.

1. Lightning - now comes built into Thunderbird. It still requires some technical knowledge to set it up properly

2. Google Calendar Provider - Instead of Lightning some prefer this addon because it shows you the web version of the Google Calendar right inside of Thunderbird and works flawlessly
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/provider-for-google-calendar/

3. Theme font and size changer - this is indispensable when installing Thunderbird for someone who needs larger fonts
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/theme-font-size-changer

4. GContactSync - Try doing this with Outlook! You'll need to spend some money and even then it's not perfect. This extension allows you to sync your Thunderbird contacts with your Gmail contacts, which subsequently sync with your phone, and vice-verse.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/gcontactsync/

5. Send Later - self-explanatory
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/send-later-3

6. Quick Text - this is great for template emails, multiple signatures, quick responses, etc. Here's a link to a great explanatory video:

Using Thunderbird For Email? There Are Add-Ins And They're Great. 5 months 4 weeks ago ezrashapiro

This has the potential to be the beginning of a great article. It can be built upon quite a bit. For starters, Thunderbird comes in dozens on languages. Literally everything about is customizable. It's stable, especially where other programs, like Outlook, aren't. It's worth mentioning that the setup can be difficult when using 3rd party extensions, but when done right you can sync your Gmail address book and Google Calendar right into Thunderbird. It fully supports right-to-left languages and spell checking after installing the appropriate extensions.

What might not be easy for some is migrating form Outlook. Veteran Outlook users tend to very loyal to Outlook, if for no other reason than Outlook is what they've become used to. For the rest of the world that doesn't like the Gmail interface, Thunderbird is so great that even the venerable Eudora has moved over to using Thunderbird's code base.

I think a great addition to the article would be a highlight of the top 20 recommended add-ons / extensions to really make it useful.

Best Free File Comparison Utility 6 months 1 day ago Bramy

A simple and fast file comparer is CDCheck. It's listed in the "Best Free CD Recovery Utility" category. Because of this I feel many people would never discover CDCheck. The beauty of the program is that " CDCheck provides the following features: readability verification, binary compare, CRC file creation (and verification) and file recovery.

I use it sometimes to compare/ verify that the folders/files that I've copied to a backup external drive are bit for bit the same.

This Dedicated Gmail Client Is Fantastic 6 months 1 day ago MidnightCowboy Whatever security software you use is of little use unless you understand how it operates. Check the user guide for Kaspersky and that will (should) explain why this was blocked. Alternatively, use one of the free security solutions that are just as effective and do not rely on "reputation scoring" to assess product safety. MC - Site Manager. view
Got An iPad? Try This Instead Of iTunes On Your PC. 6 months 1 day ago Rev_Don

Recieved a reply from their so called support team. All it contained was the same activation code I already had. It's obvious they don't even bother to read e-mails addressed to them. Ran into a similar problem with the offer for a free version of their DVD Ripper that wouldn't activate past the trial version. That was also a link from Gizmo's Freeware. Looks like Gizmo needs to do more research before recommending products as they are recommending too many that aren't free or only limited time/functionality trial software.

Got An iPad? Try This Instead Of iTunes On Your PC. 6 months 1 day ago Rev_Don

No way to register/activate or use it now. As soon as you install it and run it for the first time you get a PopUp about updating. The only option is to update, but that takes you to the website. You can't close the Update PopUp which prevents you from activating or running the program. The free activation is only for the older version so you can't activate if you update to the newer version. That leaves you with a program you can't run except in gimped trial mode, can't update, and can't activate without purchasing the full version. And there is no support for the free version. Typical of WinX software.

F.Lux Gets A Big Update And It's Still My Favourite 6 months 2 days ago rhiannon

I've tried this program on and off over the years and have had the pink tinge issue too so I don't use it. The new version still has the pink tinge on my system. I think it would be great if I could get rid of the pink.

The Easiest Way Yet to Download YouTube Videos 6 months 2 days ago daled

Did you check to see what the original video was available as? I'm using Opera and have no problems. The free downloads seem to go up to 720p though. It does report what the software will provide over that but how many need more than 720p anyway?

Considering this is SO simple and we don't need to install anything, looking an ad or two isn't too much of a big ask really.

I gave the program a try about 9 months ago for a few weeks. I couldn't rid pages of the pink tinge despite following the advice given in regards to that glitch. If the new update has successfully solved that issue I may install Flux again as the idea behind this software is a good one.

I love f.lux and thank techsupportalert for bringing it to my attention. I went to the site for the update and it doesn't download anywhere on my pc. tried it twice and NOPE. I'm still on v 3.10
I will try again later...

2AM next day... NADA nothing happens. I used 'everything' to find all flux files, only 3.10 exists.

You have to search a bit to find the link for the free download. I have not found it to be much of a chore to search for "YouTube download" to take me to any of the many sites I can use to download.

Best Free Program Launcher 6 months 4 days ago Geert

I also tried all the ones you mentioned. And indeed Executor is a good one. Good enough to be mentioned here indeed.
But then I found KeyPirinha and I found that one even better. Since that day I use it one all my computers.
But it seems this page's editor is not willing to mention it here.

I really cant understand why Executor is not on this list.

http://executor.dk

Even if the last update was on 9 nov. 2013, IMHO it is the best launcher so far. I cant imagine my PC without Executor. I had it from windows 7 up to now (win 10) without any problems - running smoothly like a charm. It is enough just to look at the web site, to see that sky is a limit for this peace of software.

I tried out the Find and run robot, Launchy and SlickRun (all on win7) but Executor was the fastest, and with much more options than all of them. It is good for newbies but also for the experienced users. And it is completely free!

If you try it, you wouldnt be disappointed.
