    Following a new set of updates received by both PCs late on Friday, the connection is restored. They can see and transfer files between each other.

    I think you may be on to something although neither PC has a login password or PIN but the network password is that generated by the master PC when creating the network. Curious that nobody else has...

    More truthful words never spoken have been. I just realised that Yoda speaks English but as though translating from Latin.
  5. no network connectivity after Win 10 updates

    I have 2 PCs on adjacent desks connected by ethernet cables to the same router. I try to sync them at least once a week with most recent copies of any files. Both originally ran Win 7 Home 64 bit....

    Why do I need Task View or Virtual Desktops? I know what I am doing. I don't have a scatter brain that tries to do everything (badly) at the same time. Do it once, do it right and get on with making...

    Woody, old fruit,

    your article reads as though you don't quite approve of mouse users; they are perhaps a little antediluvian. Maybe so but I have been using Win 7 for 2 years now on a 23 inch...

    I completely fail to see the point of RSS feeds. Don't you have newspapers? Are your lives so empty you must know this stuff, most of which is rubbish. Would not a complete story with comments from...

    I want a return to XP (and previous) style, structured menus. I need to see what's there, not have to guess as with the Win7 Start.
