    VMware Workstation 15 Player & Screen Resolution

    In my new LG Gram laptop with Windows10 and 17” 4K screen I installed VMware to have access to XP-PRO but I’m not happy with the XP-PRO screen resolution, everything is so tiny. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong or it should be this way? The LG screen is set to 1920x1200 and I’m happy with it...

    Are Two Passwords Really a Good Practice?

    Very good point here and I was thinking about it however I'm retired and the laptop always stay at home but in any case I'm at the point to encrypt the SSD, perhaps during the holidays. Thank you

    Are Two Passwords Really a Good Practice?

    For years now I use two different passwords in my laptops, one is at boot time (which is set inside the BIOS and is also needed to edit the boot menu) and the other to access the Desktop (Windows 10) which is also my MS Account password. I was told the other day that the second password to...

    Tiny Fonts on 17” 4K Laptop Screen

    You are right, the 1920x1200 is the best. I also tried 1680x1050 but it’s not as good I use the registry since Vista quite a lot so I have no problem working in the registry. If you want to send me what you got I will be happy to try. Back in Vista times I used to go to...

    Tiny Fonts on 17” 4K Laptop Screen

    Sorry, I didn't see your previous reply but since I'm a senior my vision is not what is used to be years ago so I also prefer everything to look larger. I wonder what the advantage is to have the native resolution because I'm sure even younger people will have difficulty reading the display

    Tiny Fonts on 17” 4K Laptop Screen

    Finally I think I’m in the right direction, thank you. I did the change to 1920x1200 and now I can see everything much better. There is still room for improvement like changing font size etc. but I think I can manage ok. How do you find the aspect ratio? I think if there is another lower...

    Tiny Fonts on 17” 4K Laptop Screen

    I wonder if there is an easy/better way to adjust the fonts in my new LG Gram 17” laptop. I read many post on this subject but the results are the same. I learn to make a restore point before I do any change because twice the screen was unreadable. The main problem is all the windows you open on...

    Settings MS vs OEM Utiities

    Thank you both for the help, I agree with you however it creates confusion to have two different utilities setting the same item. Either the OEM or MS should have a way to fix the confusion but......why bother, let the user figure it out!

    Settings MS vs OEM Utiities

    What do you do when you have MS and OEM utilities controlling the same settings? Like on my new LG Gram 17” laptop I can set for example the screen brightness thru the MS settings or the LG Control settings. The same for many other settings. Is one better than the other one? Thank you
