    Solved Want to convert Windows 10 64-bit to Windows 7 32-bit

    Sorry about my misleading title of Win 10 Pro. My mistake. The laptop currently has Win 10 installed with a 64 bit OS. I want to convert it to Win 7 Pro with a 32 bit OS. This is purely a travel laptop; not my primary home computer. I have old program discs that will not install on a 64 bit...

    Solved: Desktop shortcuts

    Thanks for the clarification. I also have a desktop with XP Pro SP3 and I use it very frequently. I have not had one ounce of trouble with it. The new OS are becoming work to me instead of enjoyment. I'm getting old. Change is becoming more and more difficult.

    What do you mean: I thought support ended in April 2014, not April 2019.

    Solved: IE8 - web page display

    There appears to be a problem with terminology. In my first post I requested a method to maximize my web pages at 100% of the viewable area of my screen and not at 50%. The tip provided by computerguy1990 did exactly that. He stated his tip was the same as Full Screen ( F11). This is not the...

    Solved: IE8 - web page display

    The tip by computerguy1990 did exactly what I wanted. It opens web pages to the maximized screen and not full screen. I don't know about IE7, but it works perfectly with IE8.

    Solved: IE8 - web page display

    When opening any web page, the page is displayed at around 50% of what it should be. This is not to be confused with the full screen feature of IE8. I have attempted to drag the sides of the page to fill my display screen, but this setting does not remain. How do you edit IE8 to always open...
