    Issue with the display

    By accident I found a way to create a thread and keep it hidden. One time I was creating a thread and when I was almost done the system crashed. So I opened it from another PC and when I went to start a new thread again I found the same one saved to the same point it was at before.

    There is an option in steam to start offline so that it does not contact any servers. If you don't require it to be online then try to find that option on the GOG platform .

    It sounds like a keyboard or a keyboard driver issue. Try using the on-screen keyboard or a different keyboard to see if you face the same issue.

    Unable to get the same performance on different WIFI devices for LAN - Solved!

    I recently purchased a dual band range extender to boost the signal for one WIFI device that has poor coverage. Both the main ISP router and the range extender are dual band. I can still get better performance from the ISP router that is only at one bar signal strength than the range extender...
