    It's a little early yet to see if the strategy is working for me or not, but I use Cryptsynch, a free App that uses 7 Zip to encrypt the target folder of a designated folder pair. The unencrypted...

    Thanks to everybody. I appreciate the input. I think I'll just live with it the way it is. Since it appears to be a MS issue, perhaps a WIN 10 update will eventually make the problem go away. If...

    So it looks like the choices are:
    Go back to Win 7,
    Do nothing and just live with it,
    Wait to see if MS comes out with a new driver for an older system, or
    Disable the Microsoft Basic Display...

    I put in the code from the back of the laptop into the DELL website, so the results should be specific to my computer. There wasn't much there. Nothing I could see that resembled graphics anyway. ...

    Thanks. I think you saved me from at least restoring a different backup. I thought the piece I was trying to get rid of was just the old Dell factory image. The size threw me. On my desktop, the...
