RE: Windows 7 and live mail

In Windows/10 I clicked on file explorer then clicked on My Computer, then clicked Programs found Iexplore.exe right clicked and pinned it to my taskbar or start menu if you prefer. It is Internet Explorer 11 and it will come up on the top left as Outlook.com. Sign In; hope this helps and I did the steps right. Some have said just type Iexplore.exe in the search box!

RE: Help with attaching water hoses and sewer hoses

First of all let me say: From one old Vet to another Welcome! You will find many RVers who will help! You can even call ahead and ask the owners or managers. I found as my health went down; that there are some very helpful people in the RV community!

RE: Windows 7

Earlier this year Microsoft MSFT +0.88% warned users that Windows 7 has serious problems. I dismissed its claims as a desperate attempt to shift copies of Windows 10 (and I still do), but now Microsoft has warned of a new serious Windows 7 problem that is very real – even though it makes no sense whatsoever… In short: Microsoft has made a seemingly small yet completely bizarre tweak to Windows Update on Windows 7 and confirmed it is crippling many users’ PCs. The tweak? It switched the status of Windows 7 update KB3133977 from ‘Optional’ to ‘Recommended’. The bizarre part? Despite acknowledging the problems, Microsoft knew they would occur in advance and it has no plans to do anything about it. I found this in a Forbes article! I went to my control panel clicked on windows update found the KB3133977 and right clicked and put in as a hidden update! So far so good. If this installs it is also known to render your Operating System unusable as it blocks it with a window. You should be able to locate the article using 5/6/2016 date and Forbes!

RE: Using smart phone as a hot spot

OK but how do I use it as a hot spot, exactly. I have a Samsung with Android. The phone is only about 3 months old but was not the most expensive one through Cricket wireless. Do I connect my laptop to th phone or what? 1) Go to Apps; click 2) Settings click 3) Click; More 4)click Mobile Hotspot, turn the button to on 5)On your computer go to wifi 6) locate your phone name 7) click; then enter the code on the phone 8) should work! I have a Kyocera HydraView from cricket; have the $60.00 Plan 10GB, then pay the $10.00 for the HotSpot = $70.00 month. Can also add 1 gb-$10.00 if needed!

RE: Windows 10 updates playing havoc on computers

I have updated a W/8.1 Acer computer to W/10 back in September and have no problems! I bought a tablet that has W/10 and no problems. Quite pleased with it, especially over 8.1. Have an old Dell that is not qualified for an upgrade, downloaded the GXW Control Panel and shut off the upgrade. It has W/7 Pro and will leave it unless Dell makes it compatible before the 07/31/16 freebie!

RE: Windows 10 Downloaded by Itself????

In Win 8.1 that I use, every so often there is a pop-up to advise that important system updates are available - and I usually go ahead and do the updates. But once, I noticed that Win 10 was loading!! I aborted the update and started tracking to find out why. ' Lo and behold, all of the 'important' updates were for my Win 8.1 - BUT on a different pages are the 'optional' updates and there was WIN 10 - checked and ready to load. So now, every time I get ready to accept updates to Win 8.1, I go to the 'optional' page and uncheck the WIN 10 load. Just one more MS PITA!!! GWX Control panel will take care of it not loading. Download then follow the instructions. Worked great on this old Dell W/7 Pro which is not supported per Dell Website!

RE: Warning windows 10 automaticly installs!!!

If you want to stop it, download the GWX control panel and follow the instructions. Stopped dead on this old Win/7 PRo machine which doesn't have any support from Dell.

RE: DW's laptop DEAD DEAD DEAD then alive?

My old 2005 Dell 12" notebook did that just yesterday on a restart. Screen went black but the idiot light stayed on. I left it set and 15 minutes later it resumed reading that it had updated. And i have Windows/7 Update set to manual updates! It is working ok again.

RE: Cheap Windows tablet

I have an older Dell 12" with a core i3 processor and 250 GB HD. I had a nice Samsung 7" tablet and bumped the table. It fell on a carpeted floor never hurt the screen; but scrambled everything so you could not see anything! I will stick with the old Dell; My Acer 15.6" with upgrade from 8.1 to W/10 and an older Gateway NE -522 with 8gb ram and 1 TB HD with Linux 17.3. They keep me busy!

RE: Cellular phone Coverage

I have AT&T coverage with Cricket for my SmartButt phone. Coverage seems to be quite well except in remote non-populated areas such as: The Adirondack Park of NYS; Idaho. I drove 550 miles in 11 hrs. including stops in one day to get to a certain state park with my 28' Class-C. Never again as my legs felt like rubber and I almost fell out upon exiting and it took 3 days to recover! LOL! Had Net10 for many years; but their customer service was horrible with all the foreign languages their reps had. I have been fighting an automatically deduction of $2.49 for almost two yrs. now. The rep acts like they don't understand and my bank is in another state. Have to wait until I go back there again to put a stop on their auto withdrawal.

RE: Internet Browser Change??

I have been using the Opera browser for about two months now it doesn't track you. Click on the Opera circle in the upper left corner of the page for the menus and settings! So simple a caveman can do it!!!

RE: Disqualified from work because of your rig?

I could see a problem with being to long to fit in a site; mostly older state parks or Forestry services; but not to short!! Back to the OP ???. Send them a picture and ask many questions! Only had a problem one time when I drove 1100 miles and they had changed management of the campground.I parked at a few box stores and stayed overnight and used the web to locate another place in the area! Once out of about a dozen places I work camped for!

I like it when they pass on the left and do a hard right; hit the brakes hard to exit off to the right!! Not! I will not slam on my brakes; hit the horn;flash the light and scare the bejesus out of them! ROTFL!
