    I am looking for recommendations for a bluetooth earpiece

    Well, my old (formerly) faithful Plantronics Voyager earpiece finally bit the dust. I need to replace it with one that has a clear signal and loud volume to use in the car with windows down. The one thing I didn't like about the Voyager is the magnetic connection with the charging cable that...

    How do I permanently disable Windows updates?

    I have an old Toshiba Satellite with Windows 10 Pro 32 bit installed. It will automatically update to release 1903 and then automatically uninstall it. The whole process takes over an hour due to slow internet and slower processor. I am thinking that the system is unable to handle this release...

    Very small SSDs - Why?

    I'm shopping around for an SSD to replace my aging magnetic HDD in an old laptop. I see that they make SSDs as small as 8GB. How does that work? I'm guessing that you load your OS onto the small SSD and insert a separate HDD for files or just connect an external. But is 8 or even 16GB adequate...

    Using Windows 10 on a Dell Latitude. I have a PNY flash drive plugged into a USB port. It's 3.0 but should be backward compatible to any USB port, right? I can see it in the Settings. But I don't see it in File Explorer. And ideas?

    I would like to take back control of my OneDrive

    The worst mistake I ever made was to turn on OneDrive files On-Demand. Not only am I a bit skittish about everything being saved to the cloud, but I don't need to free up space on my PC. So what I would like to do is simply turn off the auto-sync feature. I want to be able to create a file and...

    How do I get my OneDrive to sync only certain folders?

    I love my Windows OneDrive but it automatically snys everything: photos, music, etc. I really only need to automatically sync my Documents folder. I don't care about everything else. Is there a setting that will allow me to select which folders get synced to my OneDrive?

    Touchscreen and virtual keyboard no longer working on Lenovo ThinkPad with Windows 10

    I connected a USB hub to the USB port on my Lenovo ThinkPad model 367927U in order to use a keyboard, mouse and USB wireless adapter. I still wanted to use the virtual keyboard and touchscreen when the mouse and keyboard were disconnected, but somehow I disabled them both by connecting the...

    Please recommend a simple PDF editor for Windows 10

    Once in a while I need to highlight or underline a sentence in a PDF file and save with the changes. If it has the capability to combine multiple PDF files into one or split PDF files that would be nice, but not necessary. I can't see spending $13 a month for Adobe Acrobat and Foxit PhantomPDF...
