    Re: Screen manager program recommendations

    This almost does what we need, except I'm wanting to swap ALL app windows on screen 1 with all app windows on (say) screen 4 (sometimes there could be 2 or 3 windows open on one screen, and 1 or 2...

    Re: Live recovery USB options

    Thanks all for your replies - I ended up figuring out how to get the files I needed from my mostly non-functional windows, and that worked enough for me - I then reinstalled Win 10.

    I thought the...

    Live recovery USB options

    So my laptop crapped itself last night while updating to the latest Win 11 Dev release (I'd had no issues with Win 11 in the 2+ months prior to yesterday). I can login but Explorer.exe doesn't load,...

    Re: Guide to multihoming home network

    I'm on two different ISPs, one of them is not my account (provided by the property our house is on).

    So I think I've solved it. Was doing process of elimination and the first thing I tried was the battery level and charging icon that always still displayed even when the tray bugged out. I turned...

    Re: Windows 10 System tray/clock playing up

    I'll have a look for DPI scaling, but I don't think that's the problem.

    I think VM Horizon was a distraction - it's playing up whether I start/use VM Horizon at all. Happens even if I all I've...

    Re: Reverse stereo R/L in Windows 10

    Got it, thank you! Crazy that Win 10 doesn't just allow you to reverse it. I'm sure it used to be there (Win 7? Win XP? Win 3.11? Can't remember...)

    Thanks again.
