    Hello, again, colleagues all!
    Since my experiences with Windows 10 reported here, things have been more or less OK, except that some of the downloads and uploads seemed quite a bit bigger than I...
  4. Monitoring Windows 10 data generation/usage

    I returned my copy of IE 11 to its default settings and lo and behold - those pesky notifications disappeared. As time permits (and if I can remember what my setting changes were!), I will...

    I have disabled all of the ad-ons except those for Google bar and Epson Easy Photoprint (my printer is an Epson printer-cum-scanner and I search a lot on the Internet - as do we all!). Nothing made...

    This solution was going to be my next port of call. The only reason I use IE is that I have it on my computer since it first came out, and my fingers know where to go without consulting me! ...

    Hello again, colleagues all! My development and maintenance work on computers has been somewhat spasmodic sine I retired and hence I have not had much of a presence here. However, as start a new...

    Thank you for your excellent advice, Maud. Not only did the procedure work, but I also got a nice insight into the way Excel (and probably other Office programs) work. I have had to change the way I...

    I elect to print files (including HTML and PDF files), but the "printer" I use is called CutePDFWriter. Instead of printing the file, it creates a PDF file and asks for instructions as to where to...
