Very nice!

Yes, you can customize the pinned tiles, but the actual menu, you can only remove sub-sections.  If I actually ever used the start menu, it would be a bit lackluster.  But I think that they're trying to get people to use search more, as when I do use the start menu, I just start typing the name of the item that I want, and it works.

I think in the implementation that he's showing you remember the key for the item.  Still seems like a lot to me.

UK police deny responsibility for poster urging parents to report kids for using Kali Linux

Even worse is that Discord is on there. Discord is very popular amongst the gaming community for chat, voice chat, and similar gaming related activities.

And writing groups, TTRPG/Board Game Groups, Mechanical Keyboard groups, etc, etc.  To say that a platform for chat, etc, is a symptom that your child may be into hacking is incredibly irresponsible.

Just the shell that comes with Windows.  It's capable enough.  For my programs, I use True Launch Bar and Fences.

Mine did today!  I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow!

Ouch. :P

My Logitech G900 Chaos is holding up pretty well, though to be honest, I haven't had an problems with any of their mice.

And I liked it well enough until a couple years later I started having issues which indicate that the microswitch is failing in the mouse button(s).

1. Sometimes a click doesn't register at all.
2. Sometimes a single click registers as a double click.
3. Sometimes a click & drag registers as a single click & release.

I think that's the problem statement.

The BAT is one of the reason that a lot of people are drawn to the browser and one of the features, so I guess it depends on their focus.

I found Brave Rewards Settings and turned off the pop-up; but now my 'new' home page has a purple nag-tag picture that begs me to turn it back on. Why do companies of great products insist on ripping off or otherwise annoying their loyal patrons? This is getting old fast. I wonder how popular (as in 'un-') the obnoxious Sales staff is with the rest of Brave's crew.

Glad that Deo got it for you... but Patron?  Sales?  Last I checked, the browser was free...

Funny comic. :P

But it's gotten me curious: How come it's so trendy to hate on PHP so much? Is there a succinct explanation on what's wrong with PHP? Seems like a walk in the park next to something like the nightmare working in JavaScript has become.

To me Javascript and PHP have the same downside- it's a pain debugging it.  It's gotten better, but that's the only real difference to me- I hate working in both of them.

Now that was funny!

Poor doggy legs.  Though I guess the same can be said for any athletic activity by anyone.

Probably the real question being that should be asked here is whether or not SigCheckGUI works with the 64-bit version of SigCheck. :P

Deo asking the real question.  Though I altered it a bit  :Thmbsup:

Are there any people here who have Win 10 and don't use Classic Shell or something like it?

I'll attach the download here so you can try it, it's rather old (2009, that's not a typo), but it's the latest available. Please run some AV across it before actually trying it, just to be sure.
Thanks Ath. Now I am sure I can download.
If not tomorrow I will surf from another station ....

Note : Is downloaded  ;D :Thmbsup:

Note after installation : I am lost !

In the installation directory only a doc and a dll !.
How can I use it ?
I am more used to the icon in the desktop to launch the program.  :-[

It's an extension of your taskbar.  Right click your taskbar and select toolbars, then there should be an entry- not sure if it will say truelaunchbar or not.  Show that bar, then right click on it to get to the options.  For more than that, go to the TLB site.


Living Room / Re: Google Home Mini - Is yours as useless as mine?
« on: January 28, 2020, 09:33 AM »
So how do we get the thing to realize that there are no content filters enabled, and just play music when people ask it to?

When you say that you disabled them in Google Home- are they getting enabled there?  Or each time, you're enabling and disabling them?

Perhaps it's defective?  I have a lot of them and haven't ever had this problem.  Then again, I use Google Play Music.  I know that Google Play Music (Youtube Music now?) has a trial plan- you might try to just experiment with that, and see if it's that Google is having problems with Spotify?

Disk space?
Hard drives are cheap these days.  Storage is plentiful.  Aside from the 1TB SSD I'm running the OS on, I've got 11TB online.  If you want to keep the primary storage device running lean, you could add a setting for locating your Recycle Bin (which I assume is different than the Windows Recycle Bin?) somewhere else, like on another drive. 

Scanning the CH+S data folders, I note that it's keeping a copy of all copied images in the Files\[year] folders, so there's a lot of space in use that I had never realized before.  Just an observation; I don't care that it's doing that.  It could be a space consideration for some, though.

For some that wouldn't be a consideration- but some use it in environments where space is at a premium.  I think that (like the other suggestion of making this the default) it should be an option.  I know that I use it on machines where I can't use that much space for various reasons.

I use Bins -

I used to use Bins, but I stopped for some reason that I can't remember right now.  There was some advantage of TLB- I think because of widgets that TLB provides.

The advantage of TrueLaunchBar (shareware) is that the menu pops out on mouse-hover, where the Windows toolbars need a mouse-click to open.

There are other advantages to TrueLaunchBar other than that, but yes, you could just use the windows feature.  If free is what you're looking for, they offer an older version of TrueLaunchBar as FreeLaunchBar for (predictably) Free!

You're the overachiever of listers Deo!  :Thmbsup: ;D

I really liked reading it!  I was going to do my top 10 video games, but I wasn't sure I've played 10 this year- even for having bought many more than that.  Looking at my list, I see that I do have over 10- so here's my top 10.

1. The Elder Scrolls Online
- I have spent way too much time in this game.

2. Marvel Contest of Champions
- Mobile game that I have spent way too much time and money on

3. Marvel Puzzle Quest
- Mobile Game that I played before MCOC.  My playtime has fallen off on this one.

4. My Friend Pedro
- This game makes me laugh!  I love it!  It's so over the top ludicrous, and it stores your best moves for each level.

5. Rocksmith 2014
- Played less last year, but still getting better.

6. Star Wars: Fallen Empire
- Really Enjoyable Christmas Gift

7. Injustice 2
- My Go To PS4 game before Star Wars Fallen Empire

8. Dying Light
- Still on my List

9. Starbound
- I never could get Terraria.  Just couldn't figure out how to get the walls and cover to work right.  Starbound made me really fall back in love with the type of game.

10. Grim Dawn
- I didn't really get into Diablo 3- this was more D3 to me than D3.

I use True Launch Bar (  It can just be a quick list, or can take the lists from folders (which mine does)

For those with a Western Digital set top box or something similar it may still be very useful.

Common problem with a WDTV Live was it couldn't handle MKV's that had compressed headers, (I still have and use one), remuxing to use uncompressed headers made the files playable, format translation wasn't necessary.

I just use MakeMKV and have had no problems with my WDTV Hub nor Live playing them.
