All Detected Networks Stuck on Connect Automatically
Several days ago I got a new router from Xfinity (Arris TG1782g). My brother noticed immediately on his laptop (running Win 7) that when he clicks the Internet Access icon in the Task Bar, every single detected network in the area has Connect Automatically checked. We live in a densely populated city and there are a LOT of detected networks. I noticed a few moments ago that my PC running Win 10 Pro also has very single Connect Automatically box checked. Most are secured networks but some are not. I can uncheck them all but they revert back to checked immediately. There is no option to 'forget' any of the networks listed and I can't find a setting to uncheck or remove them. I also cannot find a user manual anywhere online for the new router, nor can I find anything in the router's settings that covers my issue. I do not have this issue with my Apple and Android devices. It's only Windows.
Where do I ask doc problem (password added, not by me)
I had a hacker in 2018 who removed a lot of my financial information and thought Microsoft store had fixed it. Noticed a lot of files seem to have disappeared from my financial folder over the last couple of months, and the most important document, I saved into an Excel file. That file still remains in the folder. When I went to print it out around December, it is now a .pdf and it is asking for a password which I of course do not have. I have no idea how to password protect a file. The name of the document has "and1" added to the title of the document before the .pdf. Is there any way I could have accidentally saved it the wrong way or would I really have to had to work to write a password? Then the next step is, is there any way to circumvent and get around the password protection? I should be the admin on the laptop and an identity under my name. No one has borrowed my laptop. This makes me freak out! Thank you very much. Windows 10 and Office 365.
The great dilemma.
Over many years, starting with DOS, I have seen operating systems come and go. When they do, forums like this always throw up the views of lovers and haters. Unbalanced views are the main reason I stay away from social media in general, because I try to look past my own narrow view of what is best. The world turns, not about me, but about every user and their diverse needs. In my world, computers do something useful like engineering calculation or photo manipulation. Things I couldn't do realistically or creatively without one. In the days of DOS, a computer did amazing things for me. I wrote software that designed and plotted timber frame homes. Something way ahead of what most companies at the time had to work with. Windows arrived on the scene and was more trouble than it was worth, to me, being hampered by a graphical interface that served no practical purpose. The mouse was the most useful advance of the time, back then. We all hate change when we have to face learning a different way of doing something that we did perfectly well before. As I saw it, newer versions of windows added many different ways of doing the same thing. Another unnecessary distraction because those changes bloated the interface making it harder to work quickly. I could still revert to DOS, (no I couldn't, actually) or an earlier OS like my favourite Win 7. Why don't I, probably for the same reason as those who have progressed to Win 10, latest update version. We hope we will discover something new and exciting in it. Sadly, we don't make that discovery, but we do still upgrade and chase that foolish illusion. I can't help myself and I doubt anyone else can, either. What I also see in these advancements is the challenge Microsoft (and Apple) have. How to invent a new wheel, one that looks better than the old round one and does all the things their own advertising agents think customers desperately want. The customer, like me, seems to be the problem. Stop using what we don't need.
As long as we have DEFENDER, why does everyone need to purchase all the plethora of malware/virus protection/programs etc..? It seems that when I get the free ones, they usually cause me more trouble then they are worth.
Microsoft - please bring back Pinball 😢
I know that Microsoft has not had Pinball since the days of XP. I enjoyed playing this game - it was a great stress reliever and was a fun game. I think it is possible to still have this game but would require XP being installed. Not sure I would want that. Microsoft please re-instate Pinball #JustSaying 😉
I want to be able to sync clipboard between Mobile and PC...
What is the app that I have to download to be able to sync I have a Moto G6 Play running Android 9 Pie I found the option in settings, but when I click on the yellow link, tries to make a login and then appears error
Whenever I open the Microsoft Edge browser, which has the MSN homepage set - and before I've even clicked on anything else - a nasty trojan/virus (Perfstringbackup.tmp) installs, then my firewall is disabled, and then a fake Windows update downloads more malware onto my PC. How is this all possible?
