    When I click the insert image and it pops out, it allows me to use 'From URL'... but not 'From Computer'
    Anybody have an idea why?

    The complete opposite of yours. From Computer is white. From URL is grey.

    Does this happen to you all the time?

    This exact thing happens to me every now and then. There was a period a while back when it happened frequently. Sometimes I would log out, close IE, reopen, and log back in again would fix it. Sometimes a reboot did it. Both solutions didn't work all the time.

    Lol! Sometimes I would give up and think that it just wasn't meant to be and with me sometimes that's probably not a bad thing! In a day or two the option would be back again.

    Could be related to the brand of browser? I only use IE.

    I'm also wondering if it's a glitch in the forum system relating particularly to rights of a new member whereas it was wrongfully kicks in not to give you that right, although I'm not absolutely sure all of what rights new members have and don't have. I do know that rights come with time or in length of membership. I know you're a long-time member.

    Anywho, it happens to me every now and then. Just wondering if you got it resolved.

    Does this happen to any other members by any chance?

Win 7 and Win 8 posts on the forums about the same lately
Just my observation but the Windows7 Forum always had many more posts than the Windows8 forum, until recently. When I would log on the to the forums, I would go to the Win 7 forum and then mark all read. I would go to the Win 8 forum and do the same thing. Used to be a big difference in the...
