    Re: Mobile phone password

    That's worth a look. I'm not going to spend a heap of time on it though - it was only ever a nice-to-have after I unexpectedly re-discovered the phone.

    Re: Mobile phone password

    I think I'm out of luck. If I start Google Maps under IE It is very erratic and just doesn't work properly. If I try to download Chrome on the phone, that doesn't seem to happen either. Remember this...

    Re: Mobile phone password

    Good idea, but unfortunately my wife is no longer with us, and she was actually a pretty bad map reader.

    Re: Mobile phone password

    The plan was to keep the old phone in the car, and just use it for navigation. There is a maps app on the phone, but if I want voice directions, I need to get them from somewhere. Any ideas about how...

    Re: Mobile phone password

    Thanks everyone, and to YouTube, which came to the rescue (as usual). I now have a reset phone that I can get into. It's not all good though, as I can't download the app I was going to use because...

    Re: Mobile phone password

    Will that reset the password as well?
    I'm also not sure how to do that if I can't get into it in the first place.

    Mobile phone password

    I found my old Nokia Windows Mobile cell phone in a drawer, and when I powered it on it still had about 80% charge - after about 2 years, which I thought was quite impressive. However it then asked...

    Re: New laptop specs

    Definitely worth a look, I would have thought. Also a good point about the plastic case, although I'm not sure how much she actually carries it around. As I said, I still have to do the full...

    Re: New laptop specs

    Thanks everyone. I'm thinking Intel I5 probably. I like Lenovo also. Cost is moot at the moment as I haven't really had the proper conversation/analysis yet. I just know she is not very flush with...

    Re: Office icons not working - and then they are

    Thanks WT. I'm certainly not going to spend a lot of time worrying about it, unless as you say it happens again. And you are all correct, if Word 2010 is working for her, then I'm not going to push...

    Re: New laptop specs

    Thanks 1101, your thoughts pretty much match mine. What I'm not sure is what is going to be awful about a $600 machine? Possibly it will be a Chromebook - don't want that, probably a tiny screen -...

    Office icons not working - and then they are

    I got a panic phone call at 8:45am from one of my many tech-challenged friends. The Office shortcuts on her desktop had stopped working. All she was getting was a message saying something like "this...

    Same here - 1 done, 1 in progress. Some quite interesting stuff in this build. Looks like they've got their breath back after the 2004 release and are back into it.

    It looks like the issue may be down to a buggy Windows update that stops printing on various printers, including Brother. There is a fix available, We'll probably try it later on today. I'll post an...

    Yes it is USB, no it's not USB3. Also I tried a different cable with a different PC with no improvement. I didn't think of device manager. I'll get her to check it out - which could be an exercise in...
