    OK. Let me see if I can explain this better. However, what you see may not be the same as on my machine, since the new build sucks up the settings (or at least some of them) from the previous build....

    Thanks Chuck. I just installed 10122 and see that this issue is fixed.

    But this build is not as friendly or intuitive in the way it displays the apps and other items from the start button. It...

    Eureka! Solved. There's a new interface: Hangouts within Google Chat - and the voice plugin and phone feature works in that.

    Thanks. I looked for a thread, but missed that one.

    Comforting to know it isn't something I blundered and caused.
  5. Duplicates in File Explorer (née Windows Explorer)

    All of a sudden, I'm seeing two Downloads folders and two Documents folders in File Explorer.

  7. Google Talk (making phone calls) doesn't work

    Having used Google Talk to make phone calls in XP, 7 and 8, I was dismayed to find that it isn't working in 10 preview. I tried it in Firefox, Chrome and the new Spartan flavor of Internet Explorer....

    Thanks, Joe. I went there and was able to delete the unwanted files from the folders and then move the shortcuts I wanted to keep to the Program folder. It looked like the older Windows process,...

    Tried that. Didn't do it.

    If you remember, back in XP, and with some finesse in 7, we could get into the Start Menu file system and move things, create and manipulate folders and modify as we...

    Can we tweak entries in All Apps display?

    Some of the apps I've installed have a large number of options, none of which I need or want in the alphabetical listing of the All Apps part of the Start Menu. When I click on the app's name, I get...

    I found a few programs that do what I want, but the best, easiest and most like Texter, is ShortKeys. Their standard program has virtually unlimited macros for $25, or Shortkeys Lite, which is free...

    Simple text macro progam - is there one?

    Back in DOS days and then Win95 and XP, I found Texter, a superb macro program where I could enter a string or a paragraph of text with a few keystrokes. It wasn't supposed to work on Win7, but it...

    Thanks. I still need a good macro app that works like Texter. I'll try on the General Windows forum.

    Just to verify I'm not a newbie, I was on the original Windows team, some 40 years ago, when...

    Eventually I found the correct Win7 driver for my video card, installed it and all is well.

    What's the best macro app

    Since XP, I've used a simple free macro app called Texter. It didn't use almost any memory, writing to a default file that stayed in AppData. It worked in Win7 and 8, but I had to go back to an XP...

    Thanks very much. Downloaded it, but it wouldn't complete the installation - said it didn't find a compatible device. Win 7 and Win 8 both work well with this 28" monitor, but 10 loads the non-PnP...

    I unchecked Fast Boot in 10 and later booted to Win7. No chkdsk problem any more. Although this is just an impression, it seemed as though there wasn't any difference in boot time with Fast Boot...
