    Slow Browser

    I am using Windows 10 and Firefox. I have no complaints except when I go to a specific web site. That web site is very slow. Is there anything on my computer that might be causing this. Others using that web site do not have the same issue.

    SOLVED Is Windows 1909 considered to be buggy?

    Live and learn. I thought Outlook was my Microsoft mail app.

    SOLVED Is Windows 1909 considered to be buggy?

    If 1909 is not available for public release, something is wrong. Either I am an Insider and didn't know it OR 1909 got released when it should not have. Well, how about that. I am an Insider but only signed up for Release Preview. I'll leave it that way. Everything seems to be working fine...

    Microsoft created problem

    I must refrain from further comment on this subject simply because I am unable to understand how "Microsoft" could have done this. To the best of my knowledge Microsoft does not perform system level upgrades automatically (not from W7 to W10 or any other combination of that sort). The user...

    Microsoft created problem

    You say that Microsoft did, at one time, install Windows 10. How and why did Microsoft do this? Have you ever had Windows 10 running on this machine? If you believe that it has, why do you believe so?

    Microsoft created problem

    If you really feel like you have stated here, I would suggest that you go get that new computer. It will be a lot easier on your nerves.

    Spam on this site

    Thank you for the offer. I may be in touch if we can't get this under control.

    Spam on this site

    I do wish that we could discuss this but I understand the reluctance. I am a moderator on another site and the recent spam (for about 1 1/2 months) has been horrendous. Most of it has been from offshore and much of it has been porn. I just noticed the date on the preceeding post. I guess you...

    SOLVED Windows 10 Photos App will not install

    I have a Dell XPS 8930 loaded with Windows 10 Version 1903 and it supports some version of a photo app but I don't know how to determine exactly what version. I am not terribly pleased with the Windows photo app that is on my computer. My biggest complaint is that every time I think I have...

    Windows 1903 update. Computer Freezes. Help!

    Thank you. Thisis a very interesting graph. I discovered no issues exist which was good to know. Side Note: there must be a space between perfmon and the / for this to work.

    Too many Document folders?

    I stand corrected. I did not intend to complaid about "Quick View" at all. In fact, I did not know of Quick View. I intended to say "Quick Access". Pardon my ignorance.

    Too many Document folders?

    I too have no apparent need for "the Cloud", "One Drive" or "Quick View". I am a sole user on a computer that is infrequently used online and when it is the sites to which I venture are few. The information provided here seems to be information that I will use (to declutter my display) and for...

    SOLVED Please Help Me to Get "Backed Up"

    I'm gaining some understanding of this process and for that I thank those who have commented - both here and in other loosely related threads. However, I have a ways to go before I'll feel comfortable. None-the-less, I consider this problem solved.

    SOLVED Please Help Me to Get "Backed Up"

    Thank you so very much. My computer(s) are really my toys and my distractions. I am 80 and a bit slow on the technical uptake these days even though I spend a lot of time tinkering on the computer. I have a technical back ground but a lot of what I have learned in the past now seems to be...

    SOLVED Please Help Me to Get "Backed Up"

    Duh. I believe you are suggesting that with a "new hard drive" that contains the "backups" I should be able to exchange hard drives and be operational with no data lost. If that is the case, I am there except for the swap of HDs. Thanks for the quick response. Hope I understand correctly.
