  1. 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...
  2. Getting "Sign-in attempt prevented" and "review your devices" messages

    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,...
  6. 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...
  8. 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...

    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...
  10. 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,...
  12. 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....
  13. 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...
  15. 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...

    Well, then, here are a few points to consider and gotchas to avoid:

    1) Thunderbird's rules default to the option of "Match all of the following" (conditions) so if you are trying to create a rule...
  18. Using rules in Thunderbird, you can't manage messages in one pass

    I've run into an interesting problem in managing email from my clients with Thunderbird:

    Each time I get a new client (not a high-volume thing), I set up a mail folder for them, then add a rule...

    You can turn your whole house into a wireless hot spot: Just get Comcast with one of their new routers. Note: They may not tell you about your new status. ;-)
  20. Possible for Mac to connect to Windows server drive?

    I am working on a proposal that may involve setting up a Windows Server for remote app publishing of a Windows software package that I sell. However, this is a Macintosh shop. They tried the software...
  21. Oddly limited access to Public on a network workstation

    I have an application that writes a few files into a special folder under the Public folder on a win 7 64 computer. Well before that happens, the exe's startup code builds a path by querying Windows...

    "Access denied" on temp file

    Although this could be a programming issue, since it has never occurred on any other system (including my own Win 8.1 system), I thought it might be some kind of Windows setup problem. I have a user...

    Network printer "offline" (but it isn't)

    I'm having a problem with Windows 8.1 (with and without "Update") in which it seems to regularly lose contact with my Brother HL-5250DN network printer, giving me a "printer offline" message when I...

    Well, no luck. I tried to install the "LAN driver" and it failed with the message that no Ethernet controller was installed.
