In response to Mr. Spector's article ...

I didn't recognize his name, when I first read the article, but I might very well have been too impressed with him merely for writing professionally:

I don't know, Tom, maybe the best had been not even to mention the Tweak-10 program! When I was quoting the Tweak-10 features, I was finally noticing how many features were from a "cleaner" not from a "customizer", so the $25 label made me decide this program should be satisfied by having been mentioned at all!

Quote from: New comment on WittersWorld
martin commented on "Open in IE", in response to Curt:

"I have created a new Open in Edge add-on and submitted it for publishing.

A word of warning: the approval process at Mozilla takes a while. It could be a few months before the add-on is available to install and use."

Be it documents or media files, I often find it important for me to have them ordered in "latest change" (or what the English term may be? My "Explorer" is not in English), because I really am no good at remembering file names. At the same time a file should preferably be at the "right" usual place, if I merely have made a minor change - which is what I would use WildGem for. Especially my picture files are ordered in themes, easily made possible by manipulating their "date of latest change", and should really not be given another time stamp (in any way) than it already was showing. Argh, does any one understand what I am trying to say here?

Twinbee, can you make WildGem offer an option to let the altered files keep old "not touched since..." (or what the English term may be), please?

webm is (was?) the declared future of videos on the web, and is regarded as safe content in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge. Surely webm is a must for allowed filetypes here on DC?!

So there was nothing new?!!  ohmy  Hehe..., so now you know, I too upgraded from 7.  I purchased a license key for a 64-bits Windows 8 Pro when it was on pre-launch sale, but at first I didn't dare to install it because "Update Advisor" said my hardware back then was too outdated, and later on I wouldn't have it anyway, because people in general kept telling how bad W8 was. Now I have a 32-bits machine with W10, so I've never used my W8 key. I have actually never used Windows 8 at all.

Hence this outdated news  embarassed
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Friendly Face of Death (Windows 10)! on: August 27, 2015, 03:25:44 AM
My upgrade to Windows 10 was a good one, so I was surprised when I read how Lincoln Spector from Windows Secrets had some terrible experiences when upgrading to Win 10.

I merely bring you a short snippet, read the full story at http://windowssecrets.com/top-story/thirty-day-win10-experiment-lasts-only-a-week/

Quote from: Lincoln Spector from Windows Secrets
(...)
Reviewing the issues, starting with the crashes

The worst problem hit on day two. When I tried to lower the volume on my music, suddenly Win10 wouldn’t respond. Then the mouse pointer started behaving erratically. Within a minute, the music stopped entirely, the external monitor went black, and then the laplet’s monitor turned blue.

I was suffering my first experience of the Win10 version of a Blue Screen of Death (but not the last). Surprisingly, it’s a big improvement over the vintage BSoD. Instead of the usual technical mumbo-jumbo, you see a big, sad-face emoticon (which I dubbed the Friendly Face of Death — FFoD) and clear, concise text that tells you what to search for online.


Win10 FFoD
[attachimg=#]


Figure 1. Win10's Blue Screen of Death provides a friendlier face and a bit less-obscure information than do previous Windows versions.


Still, that was not much consolation. The first crash occurred on day two, in the middle of work. Two days later, it happened again. On day six, Win10 crashed twice! Each crash was preceded by erratic Windows behavior and no response from the keyboard and mouse. Two more crashes the next day effectively ended the 30-day experiment.

(...)http://windowssecrets.com/top-story/thirty-day-win10-experiment-lasts-only-a-week/

Anyway, it's good that the new error message actually gives you an useful information rather than the former useless search without knowing what you are searching for

This is still free from Curt's post.
Updated this year.

New (apparently stable) beta version for Windows 10:
WPanorama version 10.1.2 beta available since August 14, 2015: http://www.wpanorama.com/beta.php

Quote from: WPanorama
With WPanorama you can display panoramic pictures by letting them scroll horizontally or vertically on the screen. You can use this software to view the gorgeous 360° swiss panorama included with the program, the 3'474 panoramas available on this site or your own pictures in .jpg or .bmp format.

The package includes a viewer and a screen saver

[attachimg=#]
Quote
Before updating from a version 7 or older to a version 8 or newer, it is strongly advised to uninstall the old version, as the files are not installed in the same folders. After the new version is installed, you should move your data files (images and ".wpa" configuration files) from the "C:\Program files\WPanorama\" folder to the "WPanorama" folder located in your personal folder ("My documents" or "Documents").
------------------------------
WPanorama is distributed as a freeware. This means you don't have to pay for it, it has no functionality limitations and you can use it for as long as you want. However, if you really like it and wish to make a donation to its author, you can do it by using "this" link

FF seems to want to freeze or get hung up more often than I'm willing to put up with.

Could "Encrypted Media Extensions" (EME) be the problem? Like some of the other latest Firefox browsers, version 40.0.2 also comes in a "EME-free" version: https://ftp.mozilla.org/p...es/40.0.2/win32-EME-free/ I am running this version and it is faster than the normal 40.0.2 -

I have no idea why "Encrypted Media Extensions" should make a difference, but on my PC it did. Not much, but some.

...the free upgrade to Win10 is available up-until July 2016 thumbs up
Since Contro has already claimed his free upgrade, it's his to keep forever with no deadline on needing to reinstall it before a certain date.

Surely he must first find & keep the license key?

Product key can easily be found by using NirSoft ProduKey: http://www.nirsoft.net/ut...roduct_cd_key_viewer.html

22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The stupid windows 10 on: August 23, 2015, 07:55:01 AM
I cannot imagine Windows 10 itself should be the problem, Contro. It's more likely the settings in Win 10 that you need to test some more; there are quite many, but at first the right setting can be difficult to even find. Keep looking inside "Settings" and in the security programs!
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Mozilla to replace add-ons with Chrome compatible extensions on: August 23, 2015, 02:45:20 AM
Quote from: Mozilla
To help the add-on development community understand how we will enable these improvements, we are making four related announcements today:

    We are implementing a new extension API, called WebExtensions—largely compatible with the model used by Chrome and Opera—to make it easier to develop extensions across multiple browsers.

    A safer, faster, multi-process version of Firefox is coming soon with Electrolysis; we need developers to ensure their Firefox add-ons will be compatible with it.

    To ensure third-party extensions provide customization without sacrificing security, performance or exposing users to malware, we will require all extensions to be validated and signed by Mozilla starting in Firefox 41, which will be released on September 22nd 2015.

    We have decided on an approximate timeline for the deprecation of XPCOM- and XUL-based add-ons.


For our add-on development community, these changes will bring greater cross-browser add-on compatibility, but will also require redevelopment of a number of existing add-ons.

We’re making a big investment by expanding the team of engineers, add-on reviewers, and evangelists who work on add-ons and support the community that develops them. They will work with the community to improve and finalize the WebExtensions API, and will help developers of unsupported add-ons make the transition to newer A

Forgive me for not (yet) giving praise.

But Thank You for telling, xtabber.
