Some of the smiley buttons of the Quick Reply editor have http url's, while most of the other resources are on https url's. The current browser generations have deemed all http links to be "Not Secure", FWIW.

Hi, Great ...
 How do i add command line etc ? What do i do exactly ? Thanks

Well, according to this guide, it's not possible to start the Photo Viewer directly providing a filename (see step 4 in chapter 2: "Open the Photo Viewer With the Command Prompt"), but if you have configured Windows Photo Viewer as your default program for the image format you have chosen in SC (usually .png), you just enable the checkbox mouser showed above, and add %file% on its own in a blank line of the edit box. Works like a charm here.

Btw, it's not needed to draw attention to a post by writing it all in bold, that's against common internet etiquette, as it sounds like shouting...

And what is stopping you from using Direct Access DOS? It can be found here

You'll need 7-zip to extract the floppy images inside the 7z files. I didn't try to install though, too far past it's sell-by date for me (it was re-packaged in 2010, but the installer files are dated 1993 :o)

It would help if you could describe what specific features of Direct Access appeal the most to you, and what other alternatives you have tried.

As you say, there are many programs that try to solve the display of a menu of applications, so there are probably some features that you dislike, or you would have picked one of the existing offerings already.
F.e., have you tried LaunchBar Commander, as provided in the Software section of this site?

General Software Discussion / Re: Custom Screenshot/OCR software
« on: June 20, 2020, 08:56 AM »
That kind of software already exists, as is to be expected:

And there is of course Screenshot Captor that allows you to automate the process, but you'll need to add some OCR software (free or paid, it should support command-line conversion, but most do) to your system, and configure it in SC to run after taking a screenshot.

Output format(s) is heavily dependent on what the OCR software supports.

That first regex that I put in works on that phrase just fine.
I fully agree, but as the OP has trouble reading (or understanding?) replies to his questions, I sort of tried to blow him off his socks, as all previous replies probably were too 'easy' :huh:

I didn't include the space in the regex
Well, there has to be some separator between any content and the e-mail address, and that's most likely a space.

OK so what is the regex to capture the piece of text that starts with space and ends with the end of the line and can contain any character?

That would look like this:
What this does is:
.* : Any character
\s+ : white-space, 1 or more consecutive
(  : start group
\S+  : not white-space, 1 or more consecutive
)  : end group
$  : end of line marker

You will have to get the group 1 value for your result, input like this:
a piece of text at the end of the line
will give you the word 'line' as a result

If you are still searching for your original request, I took the first regex from, dropped it in the regex tester, fixed the issues it reported (escape a few slashes because of the PCRE regex engine), and wrapped it with the construction I just showed here, and came up with this:
If you feed that this text:
test for email address with plain text prefix
The only group that's there produces '[email protected]' as a result.

Did I complete your assignment with this? ;)

RAM usage is pretty bad, yes, but CPU not so much. Right now the CPU is at 10%, and even when it's a bit higher I can live with that.
I've got other stuff running besides my browsers, and I want max available of my CPU and memory to go there, the browser is only a view on my working environment, not 'the only thing in the world' ;D

First thing I'd do is switch to Firefox, when having that many tabs open in a browser, Chrome isn't really good at that, consuming lots of memory and CPU when the tab-count goes up. I'm running one of my Firefox instances with 300 tabs, without trouble, but I do turn off that computer at the end of my workday.

I try to never touch the pagefile size, at least not since the Windows 2000 days, back in the Windows NT 4.0 days it seemed to make sense to tune it, but after that it usually got worst whatever way I tuned it away from the Windows optimal/automatic settings. Theoretically, Windows running on a 16 GB system should be able to do without any pagefile, but I've found that Windows can get really instable that way, so that's IMHO a good reason not to touch it.

General Software Discussion / Re: Chrome tab height bug?
« on: June 07, 2020, 06:41 AM »
The issue still sometimes shows up here. I'm really surprised that this thread didn't get a single reply. Am I the only one seeing this? :)
Well, I initially read your post but didn't recognize the issue, Chrome is only my third browser (Firefox GA and Firefox DEV are my 2 main browsers... browser-based application development and testing on the same domain but different accounts => 2 browsers is the easiest solution).
And on top of that, even if it happened, I probably wouldn't have noticed... :-[

Why are you trying to use something you don't know how to construct (you are not even checking for the mandatory @ and .  >:(), if there are several working examples and links in posts above yours? Please use the advice that's given, for free, by ppl that actually know what they are talking about.

Living Room / Re: 3D Printing - General Discussion
« on: May 28, 2020, 02:21 PM »
I've been looking at 3D printers lately too, and I've been attracted by the to-be-released Creality cr-6-se (kickstarter link) 3D printer. It seems to be an improved successor to their quite popular Creality Ender-3 model.

Advantage of the Sovol SV01 model linked above is it's slightly larger printing range, but having to add the 'silent steppers' upgrade to the Sovol makes the Creality model quite attractive to me.

Now only to convince myself I really, really, need it...  ;D ;D ;D

Where is that valve used?
How often per day/hour/minute (or whatever scale seems appropriate) is the valve opened/shut?

Is your Antivirus killing the process?

Well, I've been using DC from https for a couple of years (ever since it was made available) now, and I haven't seen a 'mixed content' messages in a long time, other then some members' Forum profile 'Signature' setting where they link to images/sites using http url's

It happens every year...  ;D
Well, I get the impression that CafePress is a lot less reliable than it was a few years ago... dunno what happened there, but it doesn't leave a good impression :o

DC Gamer Club / Re: From within GTA to Excel
« on: April 20, 2020, 01:27 PM »
You can instantiate an Excel COM object, and manipulate it completely from there, so I think you'll manage that fine. Lots of resources to be found in 'da google' when you get stuck ;)

(and so on): Will be added from time to time.

Please add extra stuff as a new reply in this thread as users won't get notification of changes to existing posts...

MicrosoftHTML 16.16299
so I think I'm using a Chromium based Edge says: "16.16299 This is the stable channel release of EdgeHTML 16 part of the 2017 Fall Creators Update."

So that's definitely not a Chrome based Edge browser...

General Software Discussion / Re: The best uninstaller

Have you done any research (Tha Google?) before asking your question here?

Moreover, what are your current objects of interest?

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / NANY 2020 Mug-shots
« on: February 11, 2020, 01:25 PM »
Again, it seems like I'm the first to kick-off a thread with NANY-2020 mug-shots.

Please add yours (or other rewards received) too :up:


I got both the regular and the alternative design again, but in the smallest available size (11 oz.), so they're actually usable under European coffee machines ;D

I'm trying to help solve issues/questions, because that is what I like to do, but with your questions/issues the hardest part is not finding the solution, but to get you to write down only the facts that are involved in the issue, and the exact result you want to achieve. Often you are adding a lot of words that have nothing to do with the issue, making it nearly impossible to help.

I'll retry to get the facts clear, please give consise answers to these questions:

  • What is the input? Currently I suspect there is an Excel file with several sheets
    • Do all sheets have the same columns/data?
    • Can you provide a sample file?
  • What is the output you need?
    • All sheets combined into a single sheet in a new file?
    • All sheets combined into a new sheet in the current file?
    • All sheets combined into the first sheet in the current file?
      • All sheets should remain in the file?
      • All sheets from sheet 2 should be deleted?

Coding Snacks / Re: copy paste utility for excel
« on: February 09, 2020, 12:10 PM »
This thread should be closed by a moderator, the exact same question by the same OP is already in another thread.

Ok, I'll ask the 'big' question once, and please don't repeat the confusing flurry mesh of info you gave above: What goes into this black box, and what is the expected output? (IOW, what is it to be used for)
you are totally right Ath.
That's the point.
I have tried to explain to Shades. Perhaps you may accomplish there.
Well, all that you have done is what I explicitly asked not to do: You've added a mishmash of unrelated and useless words that say absolutely nothing about the issue you are trying to resolve. And on top of that you even used 3 posts to do that... >:(
To add insult to injury, you talk about using ahk to do something for you because Excel is 'too big' for you (to handle?).
What kind of help are you expecting?
