  1. Thank you for replying. I won't upgrade from WP...

    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...
  4. 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.

    My favorite programs...

    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...
  7. That's what I thought. I just wonder if...

    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...
  8. Very slow DSL--what happens with Win10 download?

    My DSL connection is about as slow as can be. It's top download is supposed to be 700+, but it never even reaches 500 whatevers. I can't do anything that streams (time out every 1-2 seconds to...

    I used "Default Programs" to set Firefox and Picture viewer as the defaults and now that's all happy. Thank you very much everyone.

    Well, I reinstalled 4.3.1 and the same thing is happening again. Now I think it's a problem with the computer. Since I got this used laptop only about a week ago, I believe I'll head back to the...

    The newest: 4.4.3. Or rather, I was until right after I wrote that last post. Right now I have no LibreOffice installed and all is as it should be. My old one was 4.3.1, and that's what I'll install,...
  12. I tried that. I don't get an option to do...

    I tried that. I don't get an option to do anything but choose whether it will handle the various MSOffice file types. I unchecked all, let it finish, restarted my computer and it's still hijacking...
  13. Thanks for your reply. I *always* use a custom...

    Thanks for your reply. I *always* use a custom install, unless it's not available, and then I think about whether I really want to install that program at all. Usually all I do is change the install...
  14. LibreOffice has taken over from Windows Picture Viewer

    I got a new (used) Windows 7 laptop last week and until I installed the newest LibreOffice, if I clicked on a picture file, Windows Picture Viewer (I think that's the right Windows feature!) would...

    I found a local independent shop that deals in used Mac and Windows computers and they can come to my house if I can't get my network working. The guy listened to what I said and said it sounds very...

    Thank you for your reply. When I said I can't afford a new computer, I meant exactly that: I'm retired on fixed income and simply don't have that kind of money lying around, not with 3 things dying...

    I'm amazed you could pull that much info from the data I sent you. I will still try "my" computer shop first. Even if I bought one of the amazon.com ones, I'd still have to find a reputable,...

    Doubly bad news, but thank you

    The hard drive is not replaceable because no one makes one that fits the space. The shop has searched for me because I wanted something substantially bigger. I will contact the shop and see if they...

    Thank you for help but ??

    I downloaded and ran the program, but I'm not sure how to post the results back, so I can only hope it happens correctly. That's one of the things I haven't had to do before.

    I have had update problems, and there's no way I'm going to allow MS to make me install things like Silverlight or Skype when I don't want them. It was bad enough when they gave us the update that...

    Thank you. I will keep looking into Linux as a possible replacement. If there's something like Wine (for Mac computers to use Windows software) available for it, then I can keep my favorite Windows...

    Windows 10--no choice about updates?

    My local independent computer store is firmly against Windows 10 because they say that all updates will be forced on you, whether you want or need them, including the optional ones. Tell me it isn't...

    I check "Disable everywhere and it makes no difference: still getting the subscribe ad on every forum page. Any other suggestions?
