    Galaxy S9+ settings

    I have my Galaxy so it will not time out for the maximum of 10 minutes when not in use. I'm having a problem when I am on the phone with someone and the screen goes black. If I need to use the keypad quickly I am unable to do so. Could I have some kind of setting wrong?

    Unauthorized downloads

    Not sure this is in the right forum. Lately I have been accessing Facebook and other social media and getting popups (three in a row on each one) that state items are automatically downloading to my computer. When I look in my download folder, they are GIFs and MP3s that I never would...

    Solved Unable to control desktop or minimize screens

    Sorry, I just couldn't handle this anymore. I contacted Microsoft and it too the tech about an hour with control of my computer. Somehow my Microsoft Admin name had become corrupt and caused problems with my computer. It's all settled now.

    Solved Unable to control desktop or minimize screens

    I can click and drag but it wont let me move the cursor without dragging the rest of the document. When I let go it just pops right back where it was.

    Solved Unable to control desktop or minimize screens

    Nothing happens when I click the double box. It doesn't change to a single box, and although I know about dragging the edges around, there is no way of dragging any part of the screen. It seems to permanently be full screen no matter what I do.

    Solved Unable to control desktop or minimize screens

    Only the minus and the X work. The icon with the double box doesn't work. Plus I can't get rid of the other screen (Windows apps) to get to my desktop. Also when I am on line, I have to hover over the upper right corner to even SEE an X.

    Solved Unable to control desktop or minimize screens

    have a new HP computer with Windows 10 already loaded. I also installed the Office 2016 because I don't want to pay for the 2018. One of the last updates on my computer has me stumped. I can't minimize anything, nor can I view my documents side by side. I am also having a problem with the...

    Windows 10 File Explorer not working

    Thought I would share this. After the last upgrade of Windows 10, the File Explorer stopped working. I found a way around it. Go into Control Panel, then Administrative tools, then you will be able to find your files. Found this AFTER I had spoken to Microsoft techs who had no idea what was...

    No, my desktop was having a few problems, found out it was the motherboard. Hadn't upgraded it for at least 8 years, so am making sure everything I purchase is compatible. I want to be able to download HD because my new hard drive is HD compatible, and my desktop is old enough the HD cannot...

    Duplicate IE windows open

    I had a problem like that. I used to have a Dell desktop and when I would click on the mouse it would many times double click. It was frustrating having 2 IEs open or 2 Paint Shop Pros, or any other program I had. I have since then replaced the Dell, I have the same keyboard and mouse, but it...
