My old computer with Windows 2000 on it died. The harddrive went to heaven. I bought a new computer with Windows 8.1 installed. This really
My daughter was here and set up some shell program to get my start menu back. She downloaded a few necessary programs. She is good at this, she does
it all the time, We had a computer since she was a kid so she has been using one since 85.
I'm best at building computers and maintaining them, but my interest changed to a different subject about seven years ago, one which is much more
important than computers but is dependent on the information on the net.
So here is my problem. I used to have ATS across the whole screen, now it is only in the center third and the printing is smaller. I also got my
daughters bigger monitor to borrow, so now I can drop another open window into different monitors for comparing, I like that. I doubt if that is what
is causing ATS to do this though. I want it big again and want to know if I had done something before to expand this in my other computer. I think
that the 8.1 is leaving this space for adds on the side but I have some of that blocked.
I also have some ads, I had zero with my last system. It makes me want to toss this computer out the window. This much faster computer is slower
than my thirteen year old one.
My access to finding what is running is dampened, I need to try to stop redirection software better so I can study things. I liked the NT platform
better. What is happening is they are reducing our access to certain things, I want access to all knowledge not just what someone wants me to see.
There are many sources that will pay for these services, I need to find a clean search engine and try to disable something in the computer that
redirects me without my knowledge. I know google, Yahoo, and others do this also. I don't want to have my search choices hampered by my past
searches. I always try to look at both sides, I don't want to be reinforcing my beliefs in the first search criteria.
How come there is a _ after the instead of saying window?
