    I currently have a local account, converted (?) from an MS one. Seeing what happened when I installed W10 - it picked up my settings from my MS account, which is now quite different to the local one...

    I agree RG. Many years ago, I was programming in Fortran 66. There was one way to assign values to array elements that saved a couple of keystrokes. If you had an array e.g. somename(10,10), you...

    Thanks Jerry, I agree that they should have given us the choice. One thing about MS products is that there's often two or more ways of doing anything, and it's good they are returning to that for the...

    I have often stated that I intensely dislike the start menu (on win 7 et al). I'm OK with it being reintroduced on 10, but has it replaced the start screen or is it an addition?

    Further to Maud's suggestion, you might not be editing but there might well be a dialogue box etc open behind the main window (I've seen this happen but not recently). Have you tried minimising the...

    Jerry, I think OpenOffice is now owned by the Apache Foundation, not Oracle.

    WX to me is weather. What are 2 bills? And I'll be passing up on Win 10 if it forces me back to that horrid XP/Vista?7 start menu.

    Problem with laptop

    My wife's laptop refuses to open. That is, I can't physically get the screen to move more than a few degrees and I can't see anything stopping it. Any suggestions on how to proceed? I had thought to...

    I'm aware that it doesn't affect Win systems per se, but it does affect people going online. Although the advice is to not use credit cards, that would cause all sorts of problems as we all use them...

    How worried should we be about Shellshock?

    Title says it all really.

    Is there anything we can do to protect against it?

    Have you seen http://www.audible.com/dc - it's a list of devices that can play .aa files (with the appropriate software). There may be something there you can use.

    So MS stop support of XP after 15 years, but don't stop you installing it. Apple, stop supporting old OSs after a couple of years and make it hard to revert.

    Ahh, the national press. When I was a press officer I had a tag which said: "If the papers get it right, it's probably a misprint'.

    HoosierWinuser, I agree with you about the subscription model - but many companies either now use it or are moving to it. I doubt that MS will not do so.

    Personally, I hope that I don't have to return to the horrid Windows start menu, never liked it. The start screen is soo much better (as far as I'm concerned). MS have always offered multiple ways of...

    I've just looked at the classic shell website and it would appear that it's only for when you're in desktop mode, so my suggestions should work on the 'Metro' screens. Another way to get out of the...

    Photo Gallery doesn't require a MS account. I can use it with a local account.

    Thanks Calimanco, perhaps I misremembered hearing sound from the internal speaker. I certainly don't hear beeps either! I can live with it (or is that without it? :p)
