  • 08/21/18--12:21: Extra user folder
  • I somehow have two user names: Mike's and Mikes. I don't need the one call Mike's. If I go to My Documents on Word or Excel, it goes to the Mike's folder instead of the Mikes folder. (Sorry, they are so similar). I think it relates to a network sharing I established but no longer need. How can I make it go to the correct folder? I tried disabling the network but that just lost my internet...

I now have three hard drives installed, all identical in all aspects regarding manufacturer, model, size, speed, etc. The copy/clone ran fine and took about fours hours. I can view/read all on the new hard drive. When swopping out to check if I can boot up via the new hard drive it's a no go. Checked...

  • Is there here a tutorial or a full discussion topic regarding this? It is my understanding that this function 'refreshes' the computer, especially when one is always installing and removing drives, especially various & varied usb drives over time. -thx

    This morning my wireless mouse cursor suddenly disappeared. I recalled that it is an HP x4000 series wireless. First I tried the "connect" button on the bottom to no avail. Then I used the "on/off button" and turned it off and back on and cursor reappeared. The top hits to my searches for fixes to this problem called for far more elaborate processes.

  • For the last week or two when you make a post it takes like 5 seconds. Very annoying. Others have reported a double space or something. Was there a recent update to the forum software of server update or what? What ever was done it broke something.
