Thanks for the tip mouser!
I have a few nephews and nieces that would surely enjoy - sounds like a book I'd enjoy myself even smiley

I'm no expert here, but you've definitely got to be careful with that 100mb partition. (It's a boot partition.)

After the capture the "what do you want to do now" screen pops up

Hi Terry,
the what do you want to do now query - that can be removed.
Right-click tray icon and click on "After Capture", select "Hide main form".

That should sort it iiuc

Added some updates to first post - Curt's post about how to create a system image in 8.1; minor changes since 8.1 are noted (I'm a late adopter..)
and:

File associations:
Control Panel [>Programs] >Default Programs >Associate a file type with a specific program (Set Associations)
or
from the Start Screen, type Default Programs and proceed as above in Control Panel (thanks 4wd)

For youtube, it seems to me an easier route would be to use some site like www.dirpy.com and save it as mp3.

I'm trying to do the same thing - get the image on the clipboard automatically after the capture. I've set the options as above, but after the capture I get the "Object and Scrolling Capture Tool" and have to click the "Save the Selected Object" button than the "Save to Clipboard" button. I must be missing something.

Terry

sounds wierd - how do you actually take the screenshot? (Hotkey; via Capturebar top of screen; via tray icon?)
And what type of screenshot are you trying to take? (Fullscreen, active window, etc.)

11  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How is youtube tracking me? on: April 16, 2014, 09:09:43 AM
IP address cannot be used to identify users. Sometimes hundreds share a single IP.

well then I end up with the same question as bit smiley
Must see if I can test it more scientifically. My experience has been: watching stuff in one browser where I'm not logged in, and afterwards getting offered the same video in another browser where I am logged in.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How is youtube tracking me? on: April 16, 2014, 07:28:49 AM
Here's a very simple solution.

Stay logged into GMail in one browser, say Firefox...and do all your YouTubing in a different one, say IE. Simple solution.

this doesnt work here** - although it may work in combination with Tor (mentioned in OP).

** Just anecdotal, but I'm pretty sure it's not working here - I presumed that they can simply see that the IP address for both browsers is the same (?)
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Movies or films you've seen lately on: April 15, 2014, 03:17:02 PM
In preparation for spring cleaning, I have been watching a lot of post-apocalyptic movies & TV shows.

I was wondering initially if your spring cleaning was the equivalent of the apocalypse tongue Wink cheesy
but then I read on - good logic, must try it thumbs up
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft dropping support for Windows 8.1 on: April 15, 2014, 03:09:26 PM
Not clear to me - I presume you can still update to the prerequisite level after that date?

Seems to be what they're saying. But it would have been helpful if they had said that more explicitly.

I have a banjaxed wrist again so unable to play at the moment myself :-( and I still haven't graduated to the world of tweeting tongue
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The right organization (WE views and a particular need) on: April 13, 2014, 04:41:58 PM
IIUC flat view (displaying all the files in a folder *and* it's sub-folders in a non-hierarchical view) and virtual folders cover what you're looking for. Dopus has both. Check out the free file managers, or the cheaper ones - there may be something there too if you're lucky.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The right organization (WE views and a particular need) on: April 13, 2014, 02:23:06 PM
You need a new file manager ;-) cheesy
If I understand your requests correctly, Dopus can do most of this. Not sure about other file managers.

EDIT// not sure if I understand your second post. Can you try and give more detail - maybe give an example too.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Anyone here using a standing desk? on: April 10, 2014, 05:50:33 PM
I suspect these things depend on your posture and, if relevant, your reason for having back pain in the first place. I'd imagine that standing could help correct, or exacerbate a back problem, depending on what it is.

FWIW, standing gets me in the legs. After an hour or so I have to keep going up on my toes, after a couple of hours, I just want to put my feet up for the rest of the day.
Then again, I dont like sitting for too long either undecided smiley

This is making me think about my desk setup - think my monitor is too high for the way I sit...
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me! on: April 10, 2014, 01:51:55 PM
French band Nouvelle Vague do great covers of 80's music. I like them a lot, I loved a lot of the originals first time round but the covers are so very different (usually a breath of fresh air, and sometimes I prefer the new version).

Here's a cover of a song I didnt know: Eisbär from the Swiss neue deutsche welle group Grauzone (1980).
Wonderfully clicheed sixties-Bond/French style video

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K99iitbISs" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K99iitbISs</a>

Lyrics are basically:
I want to be a polar bear,
then I wont have to cry [cry out] any more,
Polar bears never have to cry [tears]


Original here

In a very different style, I like this cover from Oomph too:

^Great, happy to hear that smiley
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Internet Explorer Front End on: April 10, 2014, 10:36:29 AM
What I'm looking for is the equivalent of the Firefox add-on that enhances the front end (the text that makes up the menus and the like) without running the page off the screen. Heck, I'd gladly settle for making the character weight 'bold' instead of 'normal'.

To make the menus bold in Windows 7 (this for all programmes!)

Right-click desktop, click "Personalize" - your current theme will be selected.
To be on the safe side, right-click your current theme and save it.
Now, in the bottom of the same window, click on "Window color"
At the bottom of the next 'page', click "Advanced appearance settings"
-
a new dialugue window open - same as the one to modify the classic theme. Click on the text for menu etc. in the image, and change text to bold below, you can also modify text size, etc.
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Quick Paste pop-up on: April 09, 2014, 03:40:13 PM
if you want to keep the clips open and paste multiple ones, just use ctrl+alt+W to show the main window and then double click items to send them to the last window.

This sounds useful - unfortunately it doesnt work with Win8 (tried with Firefox & Notepad).
I get the copied sound, but nothing pastes. Can try it on Win7 tomorrow.

(and sorry, cant help either with 'Stack' feature. And another welcome to ClipPete :-)

^I *think* VPN is your keyword. Never used one myself though.

But (unclear if you missed that) the Hulu offer was for a weekend in February...
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Off topic but does anhyone know wherei can get a Guaranted real JAVA installer on: April 06, 2014, 03:10:20 PM
Now I have to find a way to get rid of the BAD copy and replace it with a good one.
Sounds easy enough but if using a browser that is already infected it redirects you back to another infected copy.

You/they/someone has to find a way to get rid of whatever it was that was installed - and to be very sure that it's gone.
Then you wont be getting redirected anymore. And removing Java completely might be a good idea: I lived without it for most of a year without problems. (Some sites do need it though, some software too.)
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 3 - Window Object and Scrolling Capture Screencast Videos on: April 04, 2014, 03:14:22 PM
Hello.  Wondering if the videos still active?  

I have clicked and got only a blank page with start arrow which does not work for me.  Not sure if my computer or if vids not active.  Trying to see how to do a continuous scrolling capture.  

videos are still active; I have mixed success with this depending on the page in question, but getting a look at the video definitely helps :-)
