  1. That three line icon

    From what I've read elsewhere, no one, including me, wants that three line icon - which you need to use to get to the settings, the major settings, that are now available with one click under the...

    I don't use the Win10 account, nor Cortana. Because, if you read the TOS when you use that account, Microsoft will track everything you do using Edge, IE any of its processes - it essentially gives...

    I got something in my email yesterday saying there was going to be a major build update released on the anniversary of the initial launch. It was a survey from Microsoft about tweaks they are...

    I've used a free open source HTML program, NVU, which can do virtually anything from building a web site to simply writing and coding documents. What is so nifty about it is that it is a WYSIWYG...

    Not a fan of the change at all. And I have given it some time to see how it would work. Much preferred the newsletter. I got here only because I'd been a paid subscriber to the Langalist for many...

    Same situation with a twist

    I have a Win 10 machine I had built for it. Works fine, though I NEVER sign in with a Microsoft account and don't use Cortana at all - I just don't feel like I want Microsoft living with me. I do...

    I use Ixquick as my main search engine, installed it the same way you suggested for DDG. I just really like Ixquick Advanced search and its privacy component as well. I don't use Google at all...

    That annoyed me too. I also found the about:config solution. I have used CoolIris Preview for years and they discontinued it themselves, but it kept working in every version of FF and Pale Moon...

    That sort of is the kicker isn't it? As if Microsoft is going to give Avast free advertising OR use their product over Windows Defender. And, of course, 10 identical emails is a dead giveaway too. ...

    I did find Cat7 cables on Amazon, about $6 more than the 50 foot Cat6 cable. As I read more though, they are talking about multiple GB speeds and like Chris says, we aren't there yet with home...

    The 50 foot cable I ordered is Cat6, I noticed in the TV manual after I ordered it, that they recommend Cat7 - but from what I read the difference is little and many routers can't handle the new...

    I have done that and you're right from my desktop it is as fast as everything else. And as is so often the case Occam's Razor is at work here too. I took Wavy's advice and ordered a highly rated 50...

    The business laptop uses Net Motion as its connectivity, it automatically goes wireless when not docked unless an ethernet cable is plugged in which I do when working from home. When I ran speedtest...

    Well, I don't have a laptop. Have never needed one. I still have a desktop hardwired to my Cisco router upstairs, along with my printer and a "landline" phone. I do agree when I run things through...

    I think it is probably a Netflix issue. Nothing hangs on my iPhone downstairs, but then I don't watch movies or anything on it either, other than YouTube and occasionally BTN2go or ESPN streaming. ...

    I will try the laptop idea, thanks. Last night, the same thing happened with Netflix, but this time it said it just couldn't show that particular item, so I tried another and it worked perfectly,...

    Connectivity issue

    I'm not really sure what the problem is, or if there is one. Good start? I have a Cisco Linksys E2500 router with four hard wired ports which also includes wifi access. The router is upstairs in...

    This just seems to be something of an oddity. I've noticed the same thing with an HP machine with two front 3.0 USB ports. I had my external hard drive backup connected to the front port and it was...

    One odd thing I've noticed with Win 10, well, two but only one relates here, is that occasionally the "notifications" will pop out and tell me that I have NO antivirus protection, so I go look at...

    This isn't related precisely, I'm offering it up only because of what you said about limited connectivity. Yesterday, when I got home from work, I found I had no internet either (I have Comcast...

    I can certainly agree with this. I am happy with Win10 but I know I am not using all of its functionality because of those pesky privacy issues. I sign in only with a local account and NEVER with a...
