    Logitech MX518 $19.99 / G203 Lightsync $14.99 and more on sale at Best Buy

    I was just wondering because my old MX500 has a red led where the sensor is but this doesn't have anything.

    Once again I turn to my [H] family for help (Excel 2016)

    I finally figured out what was causing this. Gotomypc was accessing the clipboard at the same time as Excel. Gotomypc has an option that says 'copy/paste between computers' which was enabled. After I unchecked that everything has been fine. Thanks to those that tried to help.

    Once again I turn to my [H] family for help (Excel 2016)

    Ok IS upgraded my work computer from Windows 7 and Office 2010 to Win 10 and Office 2016. They somehow backed up my settings and files and restored them to the new machine. The problem is when I copy and paste in Excel, I get this error message "We couldn't free up space on the Clipboard...

    How do I get rid of Microsoft Edge and Skype on Windows 10 Pro ? They mysteriously installed themselfs

    It's possible. I think it originally got installed with Office 2013. There are 5 instances showing in Task Manager but nothing is in my start menu or in control panel programs and features.

    How do I get rid of Microsoft Edge and Skype on Windows 10 Pro ? They mysteriously installed themselfs

    What I don't get is that I uninstalled Skype from Windows Enterprise but I still get update notices for it and see a Skype process running in Task Manager. WTF?

    How do you set the default user in Win10?

    My job upgraded my computer to Win10. I can't seem to have my username be the default user when I boot. It always comes up 'other user'. How can I make it be my username?

    Just so I'm clear, is this only on Steam or can you install it on a Windows computer?

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    Yes. Ethernet to my LAN and the coax connection in the wall must link to the neighbor's network somewhere.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    Yep. It used to be a private one but I told them I needed a public one so I could remote into my network.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    There is just a rj45 jack in the wall. I plug my WAN cable from my router into it.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    BTW I checked the public IP address when I was connected to the other network. It is one digit different from mine.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    It's connecting both of our LANs together. Sometimes my device gets an IP from their router and thus access to the internet. Sometimes they get an IP from my router. I'm in an apartment.

    I haven't looked recently but there is a Moca setup and an ethernet setup available.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    I have seen Moca setup in the Tivo box. What exactly is that? If they can't somehow get this box behind my router I'm going to have to cancel service. I can't have this thing have an unfettered internet connection and be connected to my network.

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    I think I have finally solved the mystery. I'm pretty sure that C0:38:96 is not my Tivo. I had converted my network to totally wired AND I had disconnected the WAN cable. But guess what? I was able to access the internet on one of my computers. WTF!! Ok on to the explanation, the Tivo box...

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    Ok. I'll try to make this as concise as I can. Network setup: Asus RT-AC68U running FreshTomato 2020.2 (main router) and Asus RT-N66U running FreshTomato (older version don't remember) setup as a Wireless Ethernet Bridge. Network printer I have a desktop computer (not the main computer I...

    I'm pretty sure my network has been hacked. Need suggestions

    I won't go into detail of how I know but at this point I'm pretty sure. First question, I've got a separate partition that I have files on, if I delete the windows partition and reinstall windows and scan the 'data' partition should I be safe? Or do I need to reformat everything? Second...

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    Thanks for the suggestion. This works. Now if I could get it to remember to open the window maximized I'd be in business.

    VM Tools keeps changing screen resolution.

    Mainly for my own documentation I finally found the setting that is causing this. It is under Edit>Preferences>Display in the 'full screen' section. You have to choose either 'stretch guest' or 'center guest' instead of 'autofit guest'. 'Autofit guest' (in the 'full screen' section only as...

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    Back to my original question. Since the resolution can't be changed in the vnc settings, it there an app out there that can specify custom resolutions to use in Win10 itself?

    VM Tools keeps changing screen resolution.

    My host monitor is 1024x768 (old monitor). However it does it whether the button is checked or not. Do me a favor, setup VNC and see if it still sticks. I'm using my laptop which is 1920x1080 and I'm trying to view the guest screen in this resolution. It will stay 1920x1080 about half way...

    VM Tools keeps changing screen resolution.

    I didn't edit it directly (maybe I did it in the gui) but here is what's in the config file. svga.maxWidth = "1920" svga.maxHeight = "1080" But it doesn't matter, it will change it back. So some other setting must be causing this behavior.

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    I'm not saying it can't be run from the command line (I actually tried it) I'm saying the 'geometry' option is not available on the windows version.

    VM Tools keeps changing screen resolution.

    I am running VMware Workstation 12 on Win 10 Pro. I also have Win 10 Pro in a vm. Inside this vm if I set the screen resolution to 1920x1080 (right-click on windows desktop and choose 'display settings'), when the vm reboots VM tools keeps setting it back to 1024x768. How can I get this to...

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    Unfortunately, this is not on linux. It's on Windows 10. I went to the 'services' area but the optional parameters don't seem to stick in that box. EDIT: Apparently you can't specify this option in Windows. Great.

    Is there an app for setting custom screen resolution on Win 10?

    I am connecting to a Win 10 machine (actually it's a VM) with tightvnc. I am trying to get the desktop to perfectly fill the vnc app screen without having scroll bars. 1920x1080 comes the closest but it's just a little too tall. I need something like 1920x1000 or 1920x900. Is there a free...

    Need advice on a work from home setup

    I definitely don't need gaming. Mainly I would have Outlook on one monitor and Excel on the other. Also, I am wondering if I could be satisfied with one monitor. Like I said I'm trying to keep this relatively cheap. Also, what is 'non-TN display', 'IPS', and 'VA'?

    Need advice on a work from home setup

    I need a cheap but descent monitor/video card setup for a computer I want to use to work from home. I'm sure anything made within the last 5/6 years would be more than enough. I have dual monitors at work but I'm not sure if I have space for dual monitors at home. What would you guys...
