Re: moving programs

Well, I recently found out that Windows 10 seems to run programs installed on a secondary drive without having to reinstall it so you could try to run it regardless and see if it launches. Nifty...

Re: Looking for a VPN?

I've been using VPNSecure for a little over a year. Works great, simple interface, policy that no records are kept, etc. Got it from GDGT Deals for $25 for a lifetime subscription. I figure even if I...

Re: Internet plan advice

That's always going to be the problem. Price keeps folks where they are, not technology. I'll keep my 200 down speeds for $55/month and no data limits, thank you.

Re: stop pages from jmping dring loading

ABP can be bought off to "whitelist" ads. uBlock Origin doesn't allow that. It blocks them all. Highly recommended. I've been using them forever. It even blocks YouTube video ads, I think. I have YT...

Re: Opening A Neighborhood Computer Repair shop?

The problem with that is, you can't charge lower and make money. I worked there for just over 10 years. They offer something called Total Tech Support which covers a massive amount of services. Virus...

Re: Viewing PDF's on Android (blurry when loading page)

I have no issues with Chrome or any other PDF reader. It's less about the reader and usually more about the connection. Chrome tends to look blurry (even on photos) until ALL of the data loads in...

You can't strengthen it. Your ISP has to support higher speeds and authorize your modem to run at those speeds. You would have to contact your ISP.

Re: What phone do you have?

I have the Motorola Moto G5 Plus. It's been a great phone and the camera is pretty solid for a phone that costs less than $200. All of that being said, the next phone on my list is going to be the LG...

Re: Some trouble with Bluetooth on Windows (64-bit)

So, it's trying to download the driver for the bluetooth dongle? Or for the device you're connecting wirelessly? To be quite honest, Windows 10 is far, far better at finding drivers than Win7 ever...

Re: moving programs

Yes and yes. Your computer will set the solid state as your "C" drive automatically and you will boot to that drive. Once you have booted to that drive, you can power down and reconnect the second...

Re: Need help with setting up a networked audio system

Re: moving programs

Re: Shift key will not work for the exclamation point???

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this is unlikely to be a physical key problem and is more likely to be a software issue of some sort. If the "Shift" key doesn't work, it won't work for any...
