    Joe: I have tried every troubleshooting tip I can find on this, and none have worked. I would not have posted a question if I had not done that first. What bothered me was that the other posters...

    Hi Joe:

    This is a local admin account. I only use a Micro$$oft account on one VM for trying Windows Insider updates, not this one. This is for multiple file associations changing with every...

    The problems occurs with every windows update & patch. Very frustrating. This has happened every since the original update from Win7-Pro to Win10-Pro. It is really the only thing that has not...

    Sorry I hadn't thought I was hijacking a thread, just responding with my own problem. I'll be more careful in the future.

    No, this one is just the standard Win10 Pro version, 10586.

    file associations lost

    My problem is that every time I get an update it whacks my default programs, and if I try to just choose Acrobat for PDFs, I can only get it by using Open With->Other App->Acrobat->always use this. ...
  6. Win10 - Print to PDF - How to display the PDF afterwards?

    This is a dumb user question, but I haven't been able to find it in my searches, so here it is. I know that Win10 has a built-in PDF printer driver, and I have used it a few times, but the biggest...

    I just did that, and it works like a charm. Be sure to only install trusted add-ons, though, which is now up to you to confirm, so I wouldn't do it if you are not careful about your add-ons...

    Update -- now its okay

    Well, I don't know if the update from 8/4 might have fixed it, or if it just starting working correctly by itself, but tonight when I booted Win10 Pro, the desktop icons stayed where I had left them....

    Thanx for the advice, but that was the first thing I checked. Auto-arrange is Off. Yes they are arranging in the same order (I think). I'll need to check again when I get back on at COB today. ...

    Desktop Icons keep Rearranging

    I have a VBox install of Win10 from the release ISO, and have not had any application problems so far, but one thing that drives me nuts is that EVERY time I move between application windows or...
  12. Sticky: Prepare is okay, but Windows Anytime Upgrade is no longer available - a week before release of Win10

    I went in to my wife's office this morning, ready to upgrade the last two Win7-Home PCs to Win7-Pro, in preparation for the Win10 upgrade coming "soon" (starting next weekend). Imagine my disgust...

    Hi Marp:

    If you haven't looked into them yet, LibreOffice now includes native PDF editing. I tried it once, but have Acrobat Pro, so that was easier for me and I didn't try again, but its a...
  14. WinXp to Win7-32-bit is a good option

    Hi Zee:

    FWIW: I recently upgraded the last remaining WinXP box (an ASUS netbook) we had. The system was limited to 4GB of RAM, so we just went with Win7-Home-32-Bit. Although the popular...

    Hi All:

    FWIW: I have tried the WaterFox 64-bit recompile of FireFox and it was okay for awhile, but support seems to have stopped. I moved on to CyberFox (64-bit) and it works great for me,...

    Hi Beiland:

    Lots of great advice was offered here.

    FWIW: I finally just converted my remaining XP box to Win7-Pro-32-bit. Since it only supported 2GB of RAM there was no advantage to going...

    Hi All:

    Just wanted to update you all... I finally got a cheap off-brand Nvidia GEforce FX550 AGP card with 256 DDR RAM and just installed it. Works like a charm. That was the problem -- the...

    Hi Decann:

    Don't give up all hope. Yes, the instructions are sometimes too vague, but with a little imagination one can usually find the right approach. I must admit that I, too, did not have...

    Thanx for your feedback. I guess if I can find a more modern, but not to expensive AGP card at the local Fry's I'll give that a shot. Not much of a selection of AGP or PCI cards left there these...

    Hi All:

    Other things to consider

    Hi All:

    I'm surprised no one also mentioned that you should always use a known good surge protector. If you had one before, its probably blown, too, so replace it with a heavy duty model. At the...
  23. Final Status (for now!)

    Hi All:

    Thanx to you all for your suggestions. Here's what I found:

    1) Our existing GoDaddy account was running a little under $50/yr for up to 100/2GB email addresses (we use just 4-5 at the...
