GrnMtnGal: Haven't been here in a long time.  Nice to see lots of the same people posting. The COVID-19 has caused me to revisit many things, reading, jigsaw puzzles knitting, etc. Staying put most of time.

Pooch1: Andie, the old days when 8-10 of us would have fun in the evenings on Senior Net or Chatback and eedy would play her music are long gone.  Hard to tell what's happened to many of our old acquaintances, but time has marched on.  Sad. old acquaintances

Andie: haven't been here in a long time so I feel like a newcomer.  I have been training for this distancing for several years now.  Hope everyone is staying safe.

Rammel.
Now on my desktop. I just can't get the Scroll to work. I get to the end and it just keep going back to begging again. seems to do it more on S and f.
Also I was doing some changing on the DT and now when I go to another site and bring it up. Size of the screen is about 4 inch length and 10 inch across. So I have to go clik on the Top Right corner to size it again each time. I just can't figure out so many things on this W10.. Seems that lot of the terminology changed from W7.

What is "the DT"? (Damn thing ?}
The open window in Win-10 is much the same as the open window in other versions of Windows.
If your window opens at 4" x 10" you can "grab" any corner and drag it bigger. When your mouse is over the very corner you get a diagonal double headed arrow - at that point left click & hold and drag the corner. In some programs in order to save the window size you can hold down the shift (or maybe ctrl) key while you click the X at the upper right

Messing with settings can often get you in more trouble than you want. Do it with caution.

DT..That is Desk top.\

Now yes it works when I do what you said above. But it just does now stay. It has been doing this strange thing for a week now. Get tired of going through all that. Wish I could figure out what I did wrong.
That is my problem in the Desk top with W10 I keep messing around with things I don't know what it does and then messing it up. Tempted to hook my W7 back up again . I loved it. That or sit and learn more about the W10. I just jump in the iPad and do more on it now. But desk top easier to type and screen so large.

Rammel.
On my W10 I can change the things the way you say but next time I boot up to use S an F .all back messed up again
Scrolling will still not hold . get to the bottom and goes up to top again. Also for ages everything shows up  with date 23/3/2020. Some are posting from people who have been gone from 2019 Such a Kelly.so far back but the posting date of his will still show as 23/3/2020. Spooky.

I can go back a few month to see that the posting date of them all will say 3/23/2020
My time of posting this now is showing as Today at 06 :20 pm and actually the time here is 1:20pm

Sounds like your computer needs some "hands on" fixing. Hope there is someone available who can help.
A site like  https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/fixwin_for_windows_10.html  might be of help.

Jeanne...check what time zone you're using here.

Extreme left upper corner...and click down arrow by your name/profile/forum profile/ and see if you have CENTRAL time zone there. 

JeanneP

Going to check that. Now I still can't get it to stay on the For Ever. Keeps going back to one hours.
JeanneP

JeanneP

Now where ever I go in S and F. the only date that shows is 23/3/2020. On every ones postings regarding if 2 months ago or today. Tried but can't find out how to change it.

Does your clock and date show correctly at the lower right (System Tray) show CORRECTLY?

yes the time a date down in the rt. hand corner are both correct. Just that on all the posting from 3/31/2020 are using the same date. Clear up to today 5/12/2020. also can't just tap the "Jump To" that was under the Spell check.Preview. Post. and it would take you to a drop down showing the next forum you needed

If it's only on S&F that your time/date is wrong your problem is likely a setting in S&F

At the top of this page [ scroll to the top ] just above the words "Seniors & Friends" click on "JeanneP" (should be in a grey bar at the left top).
In the box that opens click on "Look and Layout".
At the top of the list that shows be sure TIME FORMAT shows "Forum Default" is selected. If not, select it.
Just below that be sure your correct time zone is selected. If not, select it.
IMPORTANT - Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "CHANGE PROFILE" at the lower right.

Check results and report back.

I have not looked at thumb drives since Windows 7. Have lots of good tongs on them . Never have gotten into w10 and don't think ever will. I was so good with wWXP. May dig it out again.
Spent time today with my thumb drives on W10 can't figure it out at all.

Now I know why I have lost some long postings. I think this is the problem.  I just can't change it from "Sign on for ever' or what it use to be. Now it is stuck in "Sign on for 1 hour." so I go past that hour when in S and f sometimes and it catches me posting a message in one of the forums right at the end of time so it will not post and vanishes.
Maybe it is another thing I am going crazy with in the House Bound most of the time along with so many more Robo Calls.
Fact had 2 today and its Sunday.
