    IE11 and screen Sizes

    I have come back here because I have an IE problem but in Win 10. IE11 icon on desktop would not open in max (not full) view so it was suggested I go into properties and change screen to max - it worked great and IE11 opens every time on max BUT - all my net icon shortcuts on my desktop continue...

    Are We Dying????

    I was asked to go remote and fix my brother in laws laptop, its on 8.1. It felt like an alien machine after being on and using 10. I thought the same when I changed from 7 to 8. Win 10 is defo more solid, it has its faults but I assume they will be soon fixed (MS take note!). I have had...

    IE11 Uninstall?

    Setting very long passwords in Windows 8

    I cant answer the question but do you really NEED one that long? Surely a VERY complicated 65 letter one would suffice?

    Are We Dying????

    If a windows forum is relatively quiet surely this should be looked at a different way - IT WORKS!! Initially every such forum is busy, then it begins to tail off as people become more knowledgeable. I have a 10 problem now, which I am going to ask about in the relelevant forum.

    Are We Dying????

    There were many pc owners who did not want to do the jump to 8, but will inevitably have to climb the mountain as win 7 support dissolves. The jump from 7 to 10 is probably the best way to go.
