You just click inside the little tiny bar that appears at bottom and type out the lines I showed and if doing the yourfilename.png one you would put what you want where yourfilename is. smiley
worked well here - I just copied the text:
screenshot yourfilename.png --fullpage
then pressed shift+F2
the cursor was already in the correct place, so I pasted the text (Ctrl+V) and pressed Enter key -
it showed a preview of the screenshot and also the path to where it was saved.

It does a perfect scrolling capture Thmbsup

Note: you have to use a different filename each time - otherwise it just replaces the previous shot without any warning.

Stiftung Warentest have tested security suites:
https://www.test.de/Inter...-Cyberangriffe-4684917-0/
(German language; pay to view article)
(Note that all were tested on Windows 7)

I get the impression that the pcmag tests were more in-depth. I can understand that a more in-depth test could find e.g. G-Data Internet (S'Warentest's winner) not so good after all - but I find the reverse hard to understand:
Norton & McAfee score heavily and get editor's recommendations from PCMag. Stiftung Warentest has them at 11th and 12th places in their list of thirteen, with: 'good' real-time protection and scanning, but with very poor response time to new threats, and OK (Norton) to poor (McAfee) firewall scores. (FWIW, both do very poorly as well in terms of help and interface.)

undecided

I hope it's okay to post a summary here (?)

Third, what settings would I use to increase the speed (fastest possible) at which I can take successive screen captures?

if you're working with Firefox (possibly relevant with other browsers too),
deselect this option (not sure what the default it):

[attachthumb=#]

EDIT// sorry, I thought I had it set to capture the cursor.
I meant the second tickbox option there - "Retrieve and restore..."
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why I'm going to buy Syncovery Pro today, at bits on: April 20, 2014, 03:07:04 PM
but even for 1200 .jpg pics, it's a RELIEF to have them just renamed/moved within the target directory: IT'S NEAT, YOU KNOW?! It's work as it should be done, instead of crappy detours
a big plus one there thumbs up

Then, I'm not fond of its profile set-up, divided into "Step 1...6", i.e. into 6 consecutive dialog frames: Some "help" is right there, but not enough help for a Syncovery beginner, and there is no "Help" button, and pressing F1 will NOT give you any context help.
-
I dont have Syncovery installed on this machine, but IIRC you are talking about the Wizard setup. It's a while since I created a new profile, but there is a method (I presume it's called 'Advanced') where all those steps are accessible via tabs within the dialogue. Using this method, you can check out all the options at your leisure (will take a while - I think there are even more options than when setting profile up via wizard).

Re the naming of profiles: you can group profiles (into collapsible groups) by have the same word or letter at the beginning of the profile name, followed by a space.
I tend to group them according to drive, e.g.
F to Y
F Project#1
F IQ
F Project#2 monitored

-
they will all collapse to
+F

It does good monitoring of files (new version copied when you save file). Also partial file backup for larger files has been very dependable for me.

TBH whenever I set up a new profile, I'm still slightly overwhelmed by the options ;-)
I think I only have four or five active/scheduled profiles. Others then that get activated or run manually when I'm working on a different project, or when I attach an external drive.

I'm no expert here, but you've definitely got to be careful with that 100mb partition. (It's a boot partition.)
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor - Copy Image to Clipboard by default on: April 18, 2014, 08:05:37 AM
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
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Tips for Windows 8 (got any?) on: April 18, 2014, 07:40:27 AM
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:

Quote
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)
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Simple audio recording utility wanted on: April 18, 2014, 04:20:18 AM
For youtube, it seems to me an easier route would be to use some site like www.dirpy.com and save it as mp3.
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor - Copy Image to Clipboard by default on: April 18, 2014, 04:13:34 AM
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.)

17  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.
18  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 (?)

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
20  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.

22  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.
23  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.
24  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...
25  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:
