    Making PC-Linq work between Win10 PCs

    " I doubt whether you'll find many ... " Just ONE success story is enough for me. ' only thing you can do, is try it yourself.' I've done that and failed and so am looking for people like the one quoted, who did not fail. ' There are better ways to connect Windows 10 computers. " Maybe, but I...

    Making PC-Linq work between Win10 PCs

    The reason that the query has been posted so often, is that no solution to the post has been forthcoming - although there have been numerous well meant attempts to get me to stop my search.

    Making PC-Linq work between Win10 PCs

    I am NOT asking how to copy data between PCs - I'm asking about PC-linq or an equivalent. I still have PC-Linq 'bridging - cross-over' cable that used to allow data transfer between 98E and XP in an effective and user-friendly way. I would like to use it between Win10 PCs. There is a 2018 post...

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    I can access my email from Gmail as well as in WLM, so I guess 'saving a copy to the server' is enabled.

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    I've set up the two step verification and copied the Google supplied App password into Windows Live Mail. It passed a send & receive test. Thank you so much

    ALSO WIN MAIL - that's a good idea for phasing it in, should it be needed.

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    I saw hints to that effect in the URL you gave me AFTER I made my reply post. The way I read it, I can get a new lease of life on my W.L.M. by setting that password. That is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. In case that is correct I thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing me a...

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    "go to your account online" My Google account ? "do you have the App Password option in Security?" I can't see 'App Password' in Google's Security. "Less secure apps' is ON. 'you need 2FA on in order to use the App Password' There is '2 step verification (2SV)', but I can not see any reference...

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    It happened a long time ago - I do not remember. But I know I had to supply the Google password when I set up the POP/SMTP system.

    Couriant - Gmail is personal only - no company involved. Lunarlander - why do you recommend Thunderbird over Windows mail ?

    Change To Google Authentication Disable My old Email Client

    My email account is with Google (Gmail), and through POP & SMTP, I access it in THE OBSOLETE (but still quite functional) Windows Live Mail (WLM 2012). Google has emailed me that from August I have no choice but to go with TwoStepVerification (2SV), so I set it up immediately. Since then, WLM...

    Telegram Desktop needs bugs treatment

    It's a procedure I do VERY often and most of the time it goes smoothly, but there are times when it stubbornly refuses. I can not detect any systematic difference in the content being pasted, between success and failure.

    Telegram Desktop needs bugs treatment

    Telegram Desktop usually follows its usual excellent routine in accepting a PASTE from Windows Clipboard, but at times it stubbornly refuses to, and instead, turns an image pasting from the Windows Clipboard into an attachment. I have tried often and in different ways to consult the publishers...

    How to fix the desktop location of a pasted shortcut

    Two separate desktops might be an idea, but I presume the easy movement of mouse cursor and 'items' would become inhibited; that would be a great inconvenience. Your two suggestions involving VIEW would NOT solve my issue.
