  • @nick99nack said: What version? It didn't work on this machine (Vista). Windows 10. Tested on 1809 LTSC. But I think it's been around a while. I believe the winkey + print screen thing worked on 8.1 as well, but I don't have a install han…
  • @win32 said: Debian automatically opens up a dialog which lets you save a png to a set destination. I don't have to go to start > accessories > paint then paste then save as a bmp/png. In Windows, you can use winkey + print screen b…
  • @win32 said: Microsoft doesn't want us doing lots of stuff. They'd like it if we exclusively run Windows 10, subscribe to Office 365 and use Microsoft Edge all while drinking Microsoft Milk. It’s not all bad. Windows 10 is ok as long as i…

  • They’ve stuck with the whole Windows 10 being the last version thing so far. Windows 10 (1903) now is not the Windows 10 (1507) that was first released in 2015.

  • I’m not surprised. They did it with XP back in the day and they’ll probably keep doing it. But you have to understand these popups are for the average joe that doesn’t know their OS is out of date and to try and make upgrading as easy as they can…

  • @win32 said: Too bad we can't have ultra-compact x86 laptops running win2k and able to connect to mobile networks to send/receive SMS and phone calls. Even if my T41/T60 could do that it would be a step up! SIP is your friend. H…
  • It’s not an issue with your browser. It’s a misconfiguration on their server.
  • What site are you going to when this happens?
  • Usually caused by a configuration issue on the server. Instead of running the code through the PHP interpreter, it's just serving it out as a file and Chrome is just downloading it because it doesn't see it as a file it knows how to open. If it's…
  • Media Info Lite is a good tool for identifying the codecs used: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/mediainfo_lite.html
  • I should point out that mp4 or avi doesn't really tell you anything but the container used for the video. The video and audio codecs contained with that container format are more important to know and understand. Like I said, it's a rabbit hole.
  • That’s a rabbit hole I’ve been down many times in the past. These days, handbrake suites my needs. But I don’t believe it’s what you need. ffmpeg would be the next thing I’d try. But for playing back files in older versions of media player, I wou…
  • There wasn't built in support for mounting ISOs back when this thread was new.
  • @nikkigreg1974 said: I was told by few people i should get a better antivirus. One for a gaming pc so when i am out in the public i don't get a virus. I was told built in one in windows 10 don't work good for gaming pc and was design for pc that …
  • What's wrong with the built in windows defender?
  • I have no doubt Apple wants to move to ARM, but I also have no doubt that they'll lose a ton of users in that switch. I've heard a lot of stories over the years from people that switched to Macs citing one of the reasons they switched was because Ap…
  • @yourepicfailure said: I'm not really concerned. A it's difficult to actually implement the exploits successfully, and it's pretty much like any other virus out there. You have to run it to get infected. Proper security techniques and you're fine…
  • It's kind of hard to tell, but it looks like the pinout is correct based on the info I could find for that motherboard. What kind of USB drive is it? Maybe the port can't supply enough power.

  • @TheTechWiz25 said: How'd you get these? Anyways I really like the Compaq one. The compaq one I got from a modified OEM install we used to use in high school and the Dell one I got from the Dell Dimension 2350 that was our family computer…
  • Here's two for your OEM collection:
  • 98 and XP definitely stand out in my mind as having some pretty bad OEM installs depending on the OEM. But with 7 and higher, I think the OEM installs have been a bit more tame. Especially the Windows 10 pre-installs. But I still wipe it out the …
  • @TheTechWiz25 said: @robobox said: The problem with this proposal is that many people didn’t want OEM software and often deleted it. That was back then...but now? Nowadays people want to see what it's like. I'd…
  • Ahh the joy of old operating systems. It's quite easy to forget just how far we've actually come. Windows 10 has its flaws, sure. But installing it is a breeze. Next-Next-Finish and for the most part I didn't even need to hunt down any drivers. T…
  • @nick99nack said: I don't see why they would. Their Quantum engine works fine and they have a decent developer network behind them. Millions of people use Firefox. Millions of people used IE and Edge, with all the Microsoft developers beh…
  • Pale Moon users should be used to having to switch their user agent. I still see messages about my browser being old and unsupported whenever I use Pale Moon. As for the Firefox Resistance... I really do think it's just a matter of time before th…
  • Yeah, I mean it all depended on what software you used. For the most part, things were all stable on the old family computer that ran XP. But we did have a few actual problems and a steep learning curve. I recall some stability issues with Dungeo…
  • @Windows99SE said: Gotta say that it amazes me that people loved XP that much. People still use it long after it was discontinued. Which is hilarious because people used to hate it back in the day when it was new. So many people thought i…
  • @Windows99SE said: And the kids that spammed "GIVE ME WINDOWS XP" will be coming back to ask for it again. Indeed. It certainly qualifies as oldware (for lack of a better term), but it isn't exactly abandoned yet. Which is just insane to …
  • Extended support for Windows Embedded POSReady 2009—the last supported version of Windows based on Windows XP—ended on April 9, 2019, marking the final end of the Windows NT 5.1 product line after 17 years, 7 months, and 16 days. Counting this editi…
