Post New Requests Here / Re: Show Center of monitor screen
« on: May 03, 2021, 07:41 PM »
Only now do I understand the original problem:

CENTERCROSSES.jpg

The blue plus in the picture is from the new "publicdomain" app, and the black&white 'plus' is from the old app from lanux128. Notice how the upper left corner of the b/w 'plus' -sign is in that exact spot the center of its plus-sign should be. So, the "ShowScreenCenter" program is accurate, as expected, but how to show the result, was wrongly formulated.

I have not yet tested further than opening, click hotkeys, closing, repeating a couple of times - and wondering What blue pen?

To me it is well working, Victor.  :Thmbsup:

Would you care to add Start hidden / minimized to systray / notification area, please?

or you could use one of the free apps that we have here on DonationCoder... like FilesNanny or Files 2 Folder

[ Invalid Attachment ]It would be interesting to know if any of you guys have tried the (attached) original file from lanux128 ? It was fine on Windows Vista - so I am wondering if the problem might be my setup. I mean, how can (A_ScreenWidth/2), (A_ScreenHeight/2) give anything but the center? Why is there a problem in the first place?

I'm in with ScreenMark!

Do you have the exact same requirement? i.e. show a mark @ the very center of your screen?
-publicdomain

Yes, Vic, same procedure. The very center.

But Deozaan made me realize that the taskbar can make a difference? However, I have never had the need for the precise vertical spot, merely the horizontal (width) one. So I am GUESSING that the taskbar that Deozaan is mentioning, not is the problem; I was only talking about the spot being too far to the right. I have not even checked if the displayed spot is too high up or what. Edited: I have Taskbar > AutoHide

lanux128 has not posted since November 2019...

Any takers to my problem?

The app is not doing its job properly on my 1920x1080: The cross comes up half a centimer off center! -even with no apps open.

I don't have the neccessary notes to go back and investigate when this began, I never imagined it could be needed.

[Scrivener 3: Don't Use It Until You Read This!](https://blog.reedsy.com/scrivener-3/)
  8)

Scrivener is a robust — and complex — piece of writing software. Intended as a one-stop solution for writers of all skill levels, Scrivener has a wide range of useful features… if you can figure out how to work it.

Pros:

  • Powerful app with helpful features for every writing stage
  • Flexible interface users can tailor to their needs
  • Free templates
  • 30 day free trial


Cons:

  • Complex to learn
  • More expensive than many other writing apps
  • Newest version only runs on Mac
  • Most users will only use a small handful of the features


For this (April 2019) review, the team at Reedsy has analyzed Scrivener with an aim to provide transparency and context. As a network that has helped authors publish over 10,000 books, we know the different needs authors have and are able to provide context for what features are the most useful, as well as what kind of writers would benefit from them.

If you want to cut straight to the chase and find out if Scrivener is the right writing app for you, we recommend taking our 30-second quiz.

Nowadays most sites "know" what size monitor, I have. So they often refuse to offer me bigger image dimensions, than they think I could possibly need! But of course I very often want larger dimensions images (for editing), than the 1920 x 1080 pixels my monitor merely is.

My idea & request is a script that would tell these sites, that my monitor screen really is 3840 x 2160 or (even better) 7680 x 4320 pixels, please?

Best regards,

How do I stop my mouse from resizing?

Press Start button on the keyboard, type Mouse & Touchpad settings and select the top most search result. From the window click on Additional mouse option. Click on the Device Settings tab and click on Settings button. From the left side panel, click Pinch Zoom option and uncheck the box Enable Pinch Zoom.23. sep. 2016

-yeah, I gave too few informations, sorry.

My connection is private and wired, and my end of it is located in the wall some 2 feet from the desktop PC. My network cable goes straight into the all-modern router and then straight into the all-modern connection on/in the wall. Hey, I live in Denmark: Everything is fairly good and up to date!

---------------------
Edited: My Internet supplier is also the supplier of the connection and of the router and the wires and 'more'. Yes, I pay them a lot of money each month.
---------------------

But of course, parts may not be working as expected. As an example, I realized last night that AdGuard still had a part running. When I closed it, the speed immediately rose to 400Mbps

01-23_NoAdguard;400.jpg

Quite an improvement  :Thmbsup: 
but still a long way from 820~1000
I expect the problem is inside my computer, not in the network; We are 400 apartments, theoretically with the same wiring, but I am the only one complaining...

AdGuard? Bad dog! Baaaad!

General Software Discussion / Speedtest of my Internet browsers :-(
« on: January 22, 2021, 06:22 AM »
I've upped my Internet connection (from 300 Mbps) to 1,000 Mbps download speed.

I was very surprised to not notice any improvement!

After removing advert blockers and other apps, I still didn't see any difference in the speed online, so I began wondering what on earth could be wrong. I mean, you should notice a difference between 300 and 1000, shouldn't you? (The answer is Yes!)

First off, I checked what my own IS (=Internet Supplier)'s speedtester (https://kundeservice...oblem/hastighedstest) had to say: 138 Mbps down. Hm... that was a disapppointment by itself - not even close to the 300 I had been paying for, not to mention the new 1000!

2021-01-21_151856 uden rekl.jpg

I downloaded a series of Internet browsers and tested them at once. By "at once", I mean: Download, install, run! No apps or settings of any kind, just paste https://www.speedtest.net/ >Enter >and click GO!

I was in shock: The results were all in the area of 43 - 124 Mbps. They should kiss a thousand !!!

      Mbps:
Brave:    44
Opera:    44
Vivaldi:    54
Internet Expl: 97
Firefox: 108
Chrome: 124

Later, an in-browser-app for Edge: 154MBps

2021-01-22_EDGEapp.jpg

I have been in daily contact with my IS, but has been put on hold until Corona allows them to visit my home again.

But then one of their technicians phoned me and asked eh... have you not tested with Ookla Speedtester's APP? You should! This was the first time I heard about it: an app for local speedtesting (https://www.speedtest.net/apps). I now have it (Speedtest by Ookla) and my online connection apparently is, as it should be (I have not fully reached a thousand, but almost): 826⁺Mbps

2021-01-21_154547speedtest app.jpg

But the various Internet browsers are still wheelchairing at 43 - 154 Mbps. How can my Internet browsers all be so extremely slow?

WHY, oh, WHY?!!

My rutine is a little different:

Unzip to C:\T-Clock

Right-click Clock64.exe and create a shortcut. Cut the cut and move it to C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

in my T-Clock it is even named week "0" (zero!)

Is this strictly for shortened addresses? If not, can I please bother someone to paste an URL that will activate ClipURLCleaner? So far none of my ugly looking URLs have been changed.

FF used to let you do that but version 75 won't allow that anymore.

The feature was merely moved to another location:

FF80.2020-09-27.jpg

First, click on the 3 dots in the address/search box and then on the new bottom line (here in Danish "Tag et skærmbillede")

FF81.2020-09-27.jpg

I want to remove that app or thing that is making Mozilla behave in a strange way.
......
I don't want Mozilla to behave that way.

Of course you can change it. But the unwanted behavior is Google, not Firefox. Google is not a search engine, but an advert seller. So the easiest way is to pay and become a premium member (I am not).

But whatever solution you chose, you will have to do new settings on you Google homepage. You didn't know you have such? You use Firefox which is designed by Google, so you have! Begin at https://adssettings....le.com/authenticated

it seems to be OpenSource{?}, so presumably it's been under some continuing development.

Thank you for the answers.

texter from lifehacker my personal favorite text expander, written in AHK

Lifehacker has changed a lot since then, so there is no "Texter Installer 0.6.exe" file any more. Do you have a copy (or newer) that I can have a copy of, please? I believe it's small enough to be uploaded here.

Stop bickering!

FreeCommander is freeware - and they also have a bonus version for donators.


The “Donor Version” of the program is the release created more often then once a year, as bonus for the donors. These versions are marked in the about dialog box as “donor” and not as “public”.  The donor versions are available as 64 and 32 bit, both in setup and portable form. The functions of the donor release compared to public are the same with the exception for searching in the “PDF” files.

This thread is confusing me. The meaning of VT is to test any site or file BEFORE downloading anything, not to download and only then test. You have described what we use a locally installed anti-virus program for! But, again, it's much better to test before downloading.

What Internet browser are you using? Go to https://support.viru...5-Browser-Extensions and find your match!
For Chrome you can go straight to https://chrome.googl...aegfbieplglfidafgoka

But maybe I misunderstood the situation?
