    Ability to change colors

    Where did the desktop colors applet disappear to? It's under personalize under Windows 7 but it's not there under Windows 8. Someone at Microsoft likes WHITE just a tad too much for my liking. Thanks. Z.

    Why so many task bars?

    Windows 8, Build 8400 Is there a way to disable the taskbar from showing on all my extra monitors? I only need it on my main screen, I do not need/want it on my other 3 screens as it takes away from the total resolution of the screen. Hiding the task bar is not an option. Thanks. Z.

    Shortcuts on the desktop are removed automatically

    This is getting to be a real PITA. I have a bunch of shortcuts on my desktop for applications that I use on a daily basis. (No I don't like pinning. Much prefer my Quick Launch.) I also have a bunch of shortcuts for some of the games that come with Win7 on the desktop. (Solitaire, Chess...

    Word 2007 Problems

    Cyber, it sounds like the NORMAL.DOTM file has become damaged. You need to delete the file and have MS Word recreate it. by default, on Win 7, the file should be located at: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

    How do I create a tcp/ip port in Win 7

    There is nothing to install. By default, Windows 7 Pro installs that option. I can only think of 2 reasons that you don't have it. 1. Your pc is on a domain where the domain admins have set a policy that prevents users from adding network printers via the ip address (essentially forcing...

    How do I create a tcp/ip port in Win 7

    Have the printer turned on and plugged into your LAN. Device and Printers > Add A Printer > Add A Local Printer > Create A New Port > Standard TCP/IP Port Click Next. Type in the IP Address. Click Next. Voila!

    I won't be bouncing back and forth between 2 same threads. Not sure about AVG. I use Avast and it seems to work with WM. Look here for importing from OE DBX Files Link Removed - Invalid URL

    Windows 7 Outlook Express for Winows 7

    You misunderstand my post. WINDOWS MAIL and WINDOWS LIVE MAIL are 2 totally different applications. You can find WINDOWS MAIL installed on any Windows Vista PC. It is the REPLACEMENT for Outlook Express, but not available on Windows 7. If you google or bing Windows Mail on Windows 7, you...

    Windows 7 Outlook Express for Winows 7

    There is no version of OE that will work with Windows 7. However, if you have access to a machine running Vista, you can copy the Windows Mail application to your Win 7 and it will work. Search on the forum for Windows Mail for instructions. Windows Mail is basically just an updated version...

    Windows 7 Outlook Express v Windows Live Mail

    Outlook Express will not work under Windows 7. But you can get Windows Mail (Not Windows Live Mail) from Vista and copy it over to Windows 7. Do a search on the forum for Windows Mail and you should find the instructions. Windows Live Mail is ok, but sucks as a newsreader, which is what I use...

    Asus p5k major compatibility issues

    My P5K-E uses a Marvel Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. When I installed Win 7 Pro 32bit, it loaded the driver off the CD but an updated driver was available from Windows Update. I guess different revisions of motherboards use different hardware chipsets. I agree with the...
