I have never been offered the Enterprise version, (once installed, you never go there again, because of the automated updates), so please report back if my link is wrong.

Coding Snacks / Re: contextmenu addon feature (alike LevelZap)

Goodevening  :)
I am using LevelZap (contextmenu addon) and it works fine. Sadly it does work on 1 folder at a time,not able to recursively on all subfolders.
etc ...
(...) LevelZap seems to have been abandoned several years ago, and (...)

LevelZap 1.0.2: is working just fine

Skrommel's MoveOut will do the job. So just forget about the following request

Someone at DC once wrote a coding snack that would meet my need - but I can't find it!  (yes, I can! (https://www.dcmember...el/download/moveout/)

In a folder I have a lot of (sub-) folders that each have a photo file - or they have a full html, including the wanted image (JPG, BMP or PNG, but always larger than a thousand pixels).

# I want a script that will collect these photos and rename them and move them all into a single folder #

The new file name should of course merely be the name of the "Move from..." folder (plus 1, 2 etc if need be).

Do we already have such a program?   :-\
Or are YOU the one who would care to write it? ;-)     :Thmbsup:

Scrcpy 2.0, with audio 12 Mar 2023 https://blog.rom1v.c...rcpy-2-0-with-audio/

I am thrilled to announce the release of scrcpy 2.0. Now, you can mirror (and record) your Android 11+ devices in real-time with audio forwarded to your computer!

This new version also includes an option to select the video and audio codecs. The device screen can now be encoded in H.265, or even AV1 if your device supports AV1 encoding (though this is unlikely).

The application is free and open source. Follow the instructions to install it and run it on your computer:

General Software Discussion / any shit browsers I can use?
« on: November 22, 2022, 06:28 AM »
Is there an Internet browser (Windows 10 x64 desktop) that I can use to enter an elderly site that apparently has been abandoned, so it no longer has what it normally takes? The site used to be acceptable some years ago, and now I want to visit it again, but I am prevented by my various browsers. Of course the site may have been invaded by wicked people,,, but my security programs are reasonable, and I am willing to check it, even though the situation reminds me of an medieval map showing the ocean next to Norway - the text in the waters said "here be dragons"...

The crossover-lite is in some ways a fantastic application.  :up:

But in every day life it is missing at least one important feature: Remember my favorite theme.

The default theme, with a feather, will never be the one that is needed for the job - and it's simply too disappointing to have to navigate for a usable theme, everytime I launche the program!

Any chance it will be updated?  :tellme:

Forgive me my slow reaction, but I was wondering what I might be doing wrong, because in my setup, the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+M isn't working / is doing nothing.

Only now do I understand the original problem:


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?

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!](

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.


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


  • 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.

or the long version:
right-click the page and click Save As...
and overwrite any previous backup

-on each and every page that you post on.

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

-not tested by me

-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


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!
