    I tried a lot of free PDF readers and I have 2 installed: Nitro Reader for regular use because it can--usually--extract content which I can then paste into LibreOffice Writer and rearrange. I need...

    There are several companies in the US that make sit/stand desks. Have you tried taking around pictures off the web to see if an Israeli company does/can do anything similar? I definitely understand...

    Thank you all! I have found that the Power toy app not only does a different 75% than Paint, it changes the colors to very slightly "whiter" than the original. So on to some of the others...

    I...

    I haven't used Irfanview in agesl I had no idea it would resize. I still have version 4.2, but before that I had a much earlier version that was included on the diskettes (or on the CD) for a much...
  5. Thank you. I decided to start with the "power...

    Thank you. I decided to start with the "power toy" one. Installed nicely, works well... but its definition of 75% produces images significantly smaller than that of Paint. I find that bizarre. I'll...
  6. App to batch resize, not compress, multiple images?

    I need to do batch resizing of images. I want the images 75% (or any given percentage) of the original. With a quick Google search I find multiple free programs and websites that will shrink the file...

    I followed instructions to use the older 31.6.0. version of Thunderbird to import from Eudora. I have some questions.

    1. Only some of the email addresses imported, which makes no sense to me, and...

    Just so you know, Comodo Programs Manager is totally free, works on both 32 and 64-bit computers / software, and, if you had it monitor an installation, can delete everything, down to all the folders...
  9. Thank you for the mini-tutorial. I tried...

    Thank you for the mini-tutorial. I tried Thunderbird early on and it totally mangled the import process. That's one reason I never went back. Is Thunderbird like Eudora in that if you copy your data...

    I do backups, including my email, to an external hard drive daily, and to an off-site location weekly. I learned about backing up way back in the stone age: DOS days. We didn't have external hard...

    Another option for uninstalling programs is Comodo Programs Manager. If you ask it to install and monitor an installation, you can then use it remove every last folder and registry entry as part of...

    I'm another "stupid" person. I've always been frustrated by wanting to work in one window while being able to see the instructions in another. I've always copied the instructions and pasted them...

    Thank you for the additional information in your last 3 paragraphs. I've been leery of upgrading from Eudora 7.1 due to security problems with displaying HTML messages. Now I'm not worried. And I'm...

    It's good to hear that maintenance is easier. I usually take the laptop--which is my primary computer most of the time these days--in for a physical cleaning and reformat/reinstall of Windows once a...

    Thank you for that info about the default pdf viewer. Most of the free Windows PDF viewers I tried made a deliberate total hash of trying to copy text and/or pictures--those programs want you to pay...

    On the netbook, I only need to backup a few things, but as I get more into the changeover, on the other computers, there will be more to backup. In Windows I keep everything (that Windows will let...

    Thanks for your suggestions. Since my first introduction to word processing was WP, as opposed to a simple text editor, and early versions of Word didn't give you way to see the formatting, I never...

    Thanks for your program suggestions. I had a very early WP Linux version but when I couldn't get it to work I gave it up--and I gave up on Linux when I couldn't get online.

    I thought I had the...

    Thank you for replying. I won't upgrade from WP 12. There are 2 things I would really like from a newer version: the ability to save as PDF and import from PDF (that may be there by now) and when you...

    When the computer shop owner installed the software the first time, he told me to copy the shortcut and not lose it because the interface couldn't be accessed any other way. I suppose there are other...

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I have 3 computers: a custom-built desktop and an HP beatsaudio laptop, both running Win7 Home Premium, and an ancient netbook that originally had XP and and is now...
  22. Tentatively switching to Linux; program replacements needed

    When I try out Linux, starting this afternoon, I will need replacements that do what my current favorite programs do, or I need to know that using them under Wine is safe.

    Swuff--
    I would love to do off-site storage on my own property. I had a laptop and both external hard drives (plus the usual jewelry, etc.) stolen before I installed security with monitoring. I have...

    I'm sorry., but I don't understand what you said. The individual words make sense but the sentence is a foreign language.

    I'm not sure this is pertinent: DSL, so that's wired. My desktop connects...

    That's what I thought. I just wonder if "overnight" is going to be long enough. What happens if it's still downloading when I want to download something? Will I be able to pause and resume? (And why...
