    Solved See files on android phone from MacBook and copy

    Thank you. I eventually found Airmore, which seems to be successful and more intuitive.

    Solved See files on android phone from MacBook and copy

    So I ended up dispensing with the cable and using Airdroid to backup over the wifi network. Works a treat - you can see your files transparently on both devices and transfer them easily. Another job done.

    Touchpad decides to click and drag instead of tap to click

    Thanks for your comments. I feel it must be a software issue. Like you, I thought the pad might have 'stuck' in a left click position somehow. But the fact it rights itself on reboot made me think not. My geek friend said he'd updated the driver, but looking online, I see there's a newer one for...

    Touchpad decides to click and drag instead of tap to click

    Hi Running Win10 on an Acer E5-511-C46Y. I have an Elantech touchpad which every so often (maybe weekly) decides it's no longer going to do tap to click (my preferred setting) and is going to behave as though I am clicking and dragging the whole time. So I have to click instead of tap. It's...

    How to restart touchpad without rebooting computer?

    Hi I have an Acer Aspire laptop with touchpad (Elan software). I like to use the tap to click function. About once every few days, the tap to click turns itself off. The first indication I get is often that whole swathes of cells in a spread sheet suddenly select themselves or a tab on Firefox...

    Solved Best quick charger for Samsung S4

    Hi I would like to buy a fast charger for my phone but am a bit baffled by choice. Can someone help me to get the right thing? I believe it's the plug and not the cable that causes a fast charge, provided the device will take it. Am I right? What are the 'kite marks' for a good plug (and/or...

    Wandering cursor trouble

    I can't quite work out if it's faulty hardware why it's sometime fine and other times not, nor why the problem goes away if the laptop's rebooted. I don't have a mouse to try, nor anything about mouse sensitivity.

    Wandering cursor trouble

    I have an Acer E15 laptop with a touchpad (Elan). From time to time I find it's doing odd things in Excel, such as when I tap to click on a box and then move the cursor it selects all the cells as though I've done click and drag. It seems tap to click has been turned off (although in the...

    Solved Outlook 2010 - cannot 'send using' a different account

    Tis Outlook 2010 but I guess what you've just explained makes sense. I never find Outlook terribly intuitive. Whenever I receive new email set up instructions there are always bits missing that I have to guess! A box that needs ticking or unticking. Thanks for filling in some missing knowledge...

    Solved Outlook 2010 - cannot 'send using' a different account

    Finally resolved it. Despite setting up the account, when I went back to the set up information it had disappeared. Every time I set up an account that didn't function Outlook created another folder. I suspect by deleting the folder I may have killed the account. Set up one from scratch. Many...

    Solved Outlook 2010 - cannot 'send using' a different account

    I have just created a new address, but I can't change the 'email from' address. I set a new contact up for it so I could select it via 'other email address" but the next dropdown box down, the 'send email using' still doesn't contain this new email address.
