    Introducing Windows 10 S

    Multiple monitors

    I was hooked one more than one monitor a number of years ago. It is better than virtual desktops. I'm running 3 monitors at one time on my tower, all at 1920x1080. I also have a laptop that runs 1366x768. It is so depressing to have one small screen, when I could be on three screens.

    Is it ok to use the external hard drive with usb hub?

    Guys & Gals.... this can bunny-trail to who knows where. Power supply unit can fry a system. I know it happened to me. BUT people who live in rural/farms may have greater problems. "Browning", when you see you're lights dim for just a second, the odd time here or there... is hard on...

    Windows 7: The windows security center service cannot be started?

    I was a fan of Comodo Internet Suite. it is an awesome program! It still installs and runs in Windows 7. Now being in Windows 10... I run Bleachbit & Ccleaner at least once a week. So win10's default firewall & antivirus are ok.

    Is it ok to use the external hard drive with usb hub?

    A laptop generally means your options are few. On a tower/desktop... you could hopefully put in a card that gives you more usb2/3 ports out the back. I've used usb2 hubs in the past. Even printers don't always like them.

    Have you guys tried Gimp 2.10 ?

    I am still trying to get to know all the features it has and how to us them. It comes with four themes. This dark one matches the dark theme I'm running in Win10 build 1809.
