  1. Renaming Windows account vs. creating new and copying files

    I'm helping someone who needs to change his Windows account name. Does anyone know what happens to the existing "personal" folder tree (Documents, Pictures, etc.) when you change the account name?

  2. It's a Visual Foxpro application that uses the...

    It's a Visual Foxpro application that uses the internal VFP database. My clients set it up as a published application on the server, so the security is handled by the group rights that allow their...
  3. Path to understanding virtual server company offerings?

    I have a single 32-bit, self-contained database application that I am interested in hosting on a server, either via the remote desktop and/or published application capabilities built into Server 2008...
  4. Any reason NOT to change default Comcast gateway password?

    Comcast was out here investigating a frightfully slow internet response that developed and in the process I switched from their single to their dual channel gateway (modem+router). In going over the...
  5. Internal USB card drives have gone missing

    I've got a Win 8.1 system with automatic updates set to "on." It has been working normally but today I pulled an SD card from my camera to insert into the built-in card ports and noticed that none of...
  6. Is "connect to suggested hotspots" safe? Is there a middle ground?

    I'm setting up a new Windows 10 system and had to pause and think about the customization question: "automatically connect to suggested open hotspots?"

    Does this mean automatically connect to any...

    I didn't have a chance to try it because I decided to return the machine (keyboard was just too danged small) and had already wiped it. I'll keep it in mind when I get another laptop.
  8. Just lost all network connections about apparent win 10 update

    I've been playing with an Acer One 10 for a week, trying to decide whether it will function as a portable writing PC. It came with Win 10 installed and has connected flawlessly to my home wi-fi as...
  9. Dropdown list not using multiple letters, scroll speed also too fast.

    I have a user who just got a new Windows 7 system which is connected to an application hosted on a Citrix server. It's an application that I have written that runs fine on all versions of Windows,...
  10. F1 Help key brings up Cortana instead of actual help

    I have a client with a new Windows 10 system. When she presses the F1 key to access context-sensitive help in my software, Cortana pops up instead. Is there any way to disable this or is there...

    I have a gmail address that I set up about six months ago for the sole purpose of experimenting with an online writing tool from a British company, and had not used for months. Last week, I decided...

    Does Skype require a Microsoft account?

    When I set up my Windows 8 system, I avoided the attempt to get me to set up a Microsoft account. This morning, I was curious about Skype and tried to set it up and it is really, really insisting...

    I'm wondering about this part of this column:

    "As for .Net, Microsoft is killing it for good reasons. Also dating back to 2002, it's now hopelessly outmoded — a clunky, hard-to-maintain, teetering...

    I've tried to use Comcast's meter a number of times, and it always seemed to be unavailable when I really wanted to check it (and the desktop version never accepted my password). It worked this time,...
  15. How to measure general internet traffic across a router?

    As many Comcast subscribers know, they have begun to add a surcharge for exceeding a data limit of 300 Gigs per month. I don't have a problem with this (since it's the correct approach under net...

    I've been using Works 4.5 for client billings for years because of the easy integration of the database with the built-in word-processor and I was dismayed (to say the least) when that was replaced...
  17. That is essentially what I've done, but Firefox...

    That is essentially what I've done, but Firefox (unless I have not stumbled upon it) doesn't have a way to limit the export to just a certain section of one's bookmarks. So I have to open the...
  18. Thanks! That would make a lot of sense if I was...

    Thanks! That would make a lot of sense if I was starting from scratch. Plus, although it would be easy enough in Notepad, I could also start with a clean word-processor document that was then...
  19. Any way to export Firefox bookmarks to a database?

    For a long time, I've been keeping a special set of bookmarks in Firefox that I shared. I would regularly export all bookmarks to an HTML file, open that in Word to remove all but those in the...

    I am currently recommending the Foxit reader to all of my clients who do not have heavy PDF processing needs. The simple reason: Foxit Reader includes the Foxit PDF Printer as part of its install,...
  21. Does MAPI allow a "primary" workstation that includes ALL "sent" messages?

    Thanks! I keep hearing that as an option, and plan to experiment with it, but it seems like it might not produce the clean "from / to" information you would want to make it easy to follow a thread....
  22. Does MAPI allow primary workstation that includes all sent messages?

    I've been using a POP client for my business email for a long time (both Outlook and Thunderbird) with heavy use of rules. I've been wanting to be able to check my mail on a tablet, but any replies I...

    Thanks! I had some follow-up:



    Yes, that was the idea (the VPN would be to allow remote users to log-in to the server and run the app). Those in my current client base who have been doing this...
  24. Minimum configuration for publishing app running on server

    I have an existing fat client database application for which I would like to develop a basic spec that would allow clients to run it as a published application. I have some clients doing this...

    I tried adding a "Copy Message to" (a subfolder of a folder called "Clients" that I created at the top level) and followed that (in the same rule) with a "Move Message to" the trash folder. I tried...
