    New Wacom Tablets

    I have an old Intuos2 which I may need to replace due to the lack of a Windows 10 driver and have been looking at the new models. One thing I notice is that they don't mention tilt and direction...

    I'm also very popular with them. I've had 4 calls in a day before and 2 within 15 minutes on a couple of occasions.

    If I'm not busy, I usually have some fun with them.

    As other have mentioned,...

    OK, I'm confused! how do you get the Windows 10 desktop to look the same as the Windows 7 one? I'm using desktop mode, but it's not the same as Windows 7s Desktop. The shapes of the taskbar and it's...

    A friend has a less charitable answer to the question "why does person X do thing Y", "Because people are stupid and selfish". Sadly, it's often not far from the mark.

    Screwed, not soldered. It's probably an mSATA or M2 socketed drive. You should be able to undo the screw and carefully lift it out.

    Something else to consider is that you can't have more than one person editing the file at the same time. Only one person can have the file open in editing mode, any others that try to open it will...

    Same. Unless you are copying into existing folders where you might get a conflict or you have very long file names, you should be fine.

    The only problem with this is that MS have released patches for Win10 that break existing installations. I have NEVER had this occur with any earlier version of the OS, nor have I ever had to...

    There's never been a free upgrade between versions of Office. MS are doing that for Windows 10, but I doubt very much they will ever offer a free upgrade of Office.

    You say you don't want...

    What annoys me is the people who state that a Windows PC always slows down over time. It doesn't. Same as the people that say Windows 10 will screw up your PC. Again, it will do it to some but not...

    Mine doesn't. Last PC (XP) ran for 8-9 years and still booted in 25 seconds, never had to reload Windows. Current Windows 7 notebook is about the same. New Windows 10 PC is in early days, but looks...

    But without knowing how many have not had issues, knowing how many have is useless. There might be a million people having trouble, but if 100 million have updated, the problem is only 1%. I'd be...

    Have you let the machines run for a couple of days? I found a lot of downloading over the first 2-3 days but after that it's slowed down and I haven't noticed a slowdown on either the Win 10 PC or my...

    "Not supported" is not the same as won't work. It just means you're on your own and Corel will not assist with any issues you might have.

    Some of them don't need to run. They just dump a high voltage spike into the socket and fry the motherboard. All they have is a battery and some circuitry to generate the spike. 10 - 20 kV will do...

    I did a clean install as well. I had to go online and find drivers for my hardware (including my monitor). Once I did that and let Windows update it'self a few times (over 2-3 days), everything...

    So I can say "what you wrote is idiotic", but not "you are an idiot"? Can you explain the difference because I don't see it.

    Sadly, my favourite game won't run on anything newer that Windows 98! They've never release a new version with the same features and there is no hacked version out there. It does happen.

    I agree with this but there is a complication. MS do not and can not know of every piece of software running on a Windows PC, so cannot ensure that updates will not break anything. Generally speaking...

    It seemed strange to me as well. The PC certainly ran a lot faster when I built it a few years ago. I might have to "bite the bullet" and reload again this weekend. Probably be rained in...

    Having just rebuilt my Windows 7 PC, the thing I hate most is how much it slows down just be loading all the updates and patches. I installed 4-5 applications and it takes well over a minute to boot...

    Most of the "good reasons" I've heard are based on misunderstanings or plain ignorance. In other words the person may feel they have a good reason but they don't.
