Well I have been playing again on this W10 With Firefox as on mine. When serching for the Tool box it says that can only use Tool box when using W. it  requires Internet Explorer 6+
Windows XP SP3/Vista/7+

So what do you think I should do?


What's happening, strange way getting into S and F right now have to keep signing in.  Also goes back. To start 2016. 
Even clicking on NEW


I still keep getting back to march of 2016 but I can now get into S and f without having to sign it each time.


Well windows 10 keeps doing me in . Their upgrade wiped out word 2007 and with the last up date it wiped out note pad.


I am no computer geek but notepad  should not have been lost IMHO.  I have had Windows 10 for some time and get updates on a regular basis, but so far it or they have not disturbed any of my programs.   What happens when you type in Windows 10?


Try typing -  notepad  - in the search box.

Or   Click the Win logo (lower left), scroll down to "Windows Accessories" and click on the drop down,  select Notepad.

Let us know how it goes.
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."



This morning I watched this video about the latest Windows update. Joe explains some interesting updates like the addition of a light theme and having more cursor colors and sizes. Some of these are more for techies and business and professional versions but keep watching. I think I already knew about the Windows update delay feature. There are new/additional features for Notepad. I don't use it, but I know a lot of people do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkKBObURSu0


Windows 10 v1903 features removed or planned for replacement

"As Windows move from one feature update to another, it adds new features, and remove some features. These features are usually removed when there is a better alternative or existing functionality won't work with future hardware. The same has happened with Windows 10 v1903 - and Microsoft has shared an official list of features which have been removed, will be removed and features which will no longer be supported."



Well windows did an upgrade and returned my Word program. Notepad is still missing.


Did anyone else lose their sound after the latest Windows 10 Update?


I did not.  No problem here.


Not for me either although Microsoft sent this out about W7 and I received it via the Lifehacker site; "Deadlines are scary. I know. And Microsoft has thrown Windows 7 users a big one: Update to a more modern operating system by January 15, 2020, or you'll never receive security updates ever again. Eventually, Microsoft will even start disabling key Windows 7 services--like Internet Backgammon and Internet Checkers--throughout the year."


Grrrrr! I just switched from Avast to Norton (the freebie that comes with my Comcast acct.). For the life of me I cannot get the password manager to work. It appears that I must have Norton's toolbar installed, which the instructions never mentioned.

So, now I am looking for another password manager that is good and isn't overly complicated. I've used RoboForm before but it won't let me create a new account with my current email address because it still sees my old account. There does not appear to be a way to change the RoboForm log-in so I can use it. If I really, really want it, I will have to change all my logins to a new email account. There are a couple of others in Firefox's stable of extensions I might try, but not tonight. I'll try again tomorrow.


Try BitWarden. I've used it for quite a while and love it.


Thanks, Oldiesman. I'll take a closer look at it. I just need it for my windows machine since I don't have a smartphone. Then again, maybe I should look into something for the Linux too, although I don't use it as near as much.
