    Thanks for the posts in reply. I use Adobe Reader as my reader as I also use Acrobat for creating, and more importantly, editing PDFs, adding forms, etc. This last is a critical activity.

    December brought updates for Adobe Reader (and Acrobat). The update also brought a mystery run-once entry that took me some time to track down.

    InSSIDer has an Android version, and WiFi Analyzer is another good tool both of which I use and would recommend. Fing (also Android) is another good tool for analysing your network, finding what's...

  6. Turn your Windows PC into a Wi-Fi hotspot

    Thank you - Windows Secrets Lounge - for the article on how to turn on a WiFi hotspot.

    Retired Geek - Kies must have improved markedly since I tried it, nearly two years ago. It was one of the "less than stellar line-up".

    Joe - again! I went digging a little further. Someone else has always had the same problem before, solved it - and, very often, posted the answer somewhere!

    Joe - just after I posted, one other idea occurred to me, to reset all folders to the default settings.

    Joe, and Rompy, thanks for your suggestions, neither of which provided the answer. I'm still where I was.

    Joe - thanks very much for your help. Unfortunately that does not provide the answer.

    Joe - I suppose that you would suggest merging the "Folder" registry fragment into the registry on my machine?
  14. [SOLVED] Windows 7 explorer - double-click does not open folder

    Recently, default behaviour in Windows Explorer (Win 7 Pro-64 bit) has changed.

    Double-click on a folder no longer opens the folder. Right click menu shows the default (bold) action is...

    Retired Geek - thank you for the comprehensive solution, which I may take a few days to contemplate. It's fairly far into my confidence boundary and I assume that I can just delete the script if it...

    Paul - I thanked you for the multiple SSID question. That was the easy one, but this one is a bit more of a challenge to implement.

    Thank you for this, too; it will keep me quiet for quite a bit!
  17. Force computer to connect wired, rather than wireless

    From what I can read elsewhere, this Windows 7 issue appears to be a hardy perennial.

    I have a dual channel (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) router hard-wired to my fibre broadband. That is connected to my...
