    Solved Problems with Snipping Tool

    Thank you for the replies. Cliff: I did try PicPick, and got the same results. But the problem is solved if you read on. brooksndun: I DID actually post pictures and can still see them on my post, but presumably they aren't showing up for other people. I have an ongoing challenge with posting...

    Solved Problems with Snipping Tool

    I've reopened this thread as my problem isn't solved after all. Seems that snipping tool works except when I'm trying to use it on the internet. For example, when I do a rectangular snip on my desktop I get this: But when I try to get the same snip on a web page I get this: Am I doing...

    Solved Problems with Snipping Tool

    No idea what happened (I didn't touch anything - honestly) but the snipping tool has started to behave itself again so closing this thread.

    Solved Problems with Snipping Tool

    Thanks for the suggestion David, but unfortunately it didn't work. I still get a black screen :(. I would appreciate other suggestions please.

    Solved Problems with Snipping Tool

    I choose what type of snip I want, but then my whole screen is going grey (rectangular snip) or black (window snip). When I try to take the snip all I'm getting is a picture of a black screen (hope this makes sense). It's a while since I used this feature, but it always worked perfectly until...

    SFC SCANNOW and DISM RESTOREHEALTH - Repair Corrupt Files

    David, I tried to reply to your message to me on this subject, to thank you for your help. But the system said you weren't receiving personal messages (today at least??) so I will make it more public: thank you for helping me with a query on using dism and sfc/scannow. You are always very...

    How To Stop Windows 10 Download?

    I didn't reserve the upgrade (it's not as if they're going to run out of copies is it) and this is my experience. Early in August I did get one or two pop ups encouraging me to download W10 but I just ignored them. And it's not difficult to ignore the icon on the taskbar. My partner had...

    Solved How do I delete User Profiles?

    Just been browsing in relation to a network connectivity problem on another computer, and I found a short program to list User Profiles. I ran it on my laptop and found that I have several User profiles from the hotels I visited on a recent holiday (see below): User profiles -------------...

    Move from Windows 8 to 8.1 NOW!!!

    Do you know if this ISO is of the very latest 8.1? (i.e. it includes that last really big upgrade to 8.1.1??). I do already have an ISO I downloaded some time ago (the latest dates on some of the contents is 20/1/15). I seem to recall that, when I used it, I still had to go through the 8.1 to...

    Windows 10 Available on July 29

    Windows 10 is a free upgrade, there's no reason to 'reserve' it. It's not as if there are going to be a limited number of copies and you might miss out. I think they're just trying to get lots of people to upgrade as soon as they can to create a base of users. Even having run the preview builds...

    Celebrating Microsoft Solitaire

    I stopped playing Solitaire when I started getting some very invasive ads a few months ago :cry:. I was never able to get to the bottom of whether they were genuine or a virus (I suspect the latter as I hadn't always been seeing them, and my partner plays the games every day and never see any...

    Solved How to Access bios

    Are you trying to change the boot order so you boot from a bootable CD/USB if it is present rather than straight into Windows? If so, it could be that your BIOS won't let you do this. I have a Dell Inspiron and I can't set it to boot automatically from a CD/USB. I checked this with Dell and...
