Oldiesmann: Welcome janezka! I'm probably the only one here who's not a senior (I'm almost 40) but I handle the technical side of things, so if you have any questions, just ask :)


General Computer Q & A

I have tried to find a way to fix but can't. A while back on my W10 desktop It was left on over night and saw that something was downloading from Windows. It had been doing it for almost 3 hours.
From that time so many changes to W10. The screed lights up everything using about 5 colours.  Back ground is black and when I write it is white. Gotten use to the colour but can't print because of this. looks like everything has been rubbed out with a black marker on a white sheet.
Right now no computer company doing house calls so I will have to wait and will go ahead and have W10 reinstalled I suppose.

So many other messes going on right now that not even using Technology's  my last thing I worry about.


jeanne....did you try doing a google search for " change black background and white text". ? 


I have Googled a few but none would explain . Will play again today.  I wouldn't mine they black background but will not work with the printing.
Got my shot yesterday No. 2. Felt awful for about 24 hours. Sort of like the 24 hour Flu but seem to be getting out of it now.  Hope you get yours soon.

in Windows 10.
If you have a mouse with a wheel on it you can enlarge things by holding the Ctrl key down and spinning the wheel either way to make things bigger or smaller.
If you do not have a mouse wheel, you can hold the Ctrl key down and tap the - or + on the right side of your keyboard, to make things bigger or smaller that way too.


What do you all make of the new Windows 11 coming out soon? Not everyone will be able to download it, so don't download it until you have read up on it. There are a setting or two in the control panel that you may have to change for it to download. Also, it appears that machines older than four years may not be compatible with it.

Windows 10 will be supported until 2025. After that, if you want to upgrade, it is likely that you will have to buy a whole new computer. Check out one of the videos on YouTube showing the new desktop environment. Microsoft is integrating more Linux programing into their Windows product. The desktop looks more like a Linux environment which I like. I am not sure when they will be officially releasing 11.


I sure will not be going to a MS 11. Not even leaned W10 as I don't like it. Wish I still had W7. I don't do a whole lot on my Windows desktop anymore. Use a Ipad a lot. I wish every thing I had was Apple. To old now to change over everything.


I still have a puter running Win-XP. I keep it because I have a couple of programs that decided not to upgrade. Some day it will just lie down and stop  :2funny:
