    Bizarre MS Word Ribbon is Stuck

    I am trying to fix this but I'm getting stuck at every turn. This is not my PC it belongs to a business associate hundreds of miles away. I can't use TeamViewer or similar as the policy is that he can't install that type of software on an office computer. He says that this is MS Word 2010 but...

    Yes, it is considerably harder to steer now but more realistic. Thanks!

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! You got it! That did the trick. I was just able to run my very first race without an exclamation triangle. My lap times sucked but I can work on that. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! YOU ROCK!!!

    I haven't tried the drift mode yet but it's on my list to try! OK, here we go. I pointed out the Data Out being OFF but I don't know if that would make the game not able to communicate stats to the Forza servers. Drivatar difficulty makes no difference tried everything between 0% and 100%...

    Thank you for your courtesy in allowing me the view. I live to serve you and your fellow overlords. :) Unfortunately scores of races with Friction Assist on and off. No difference. This is truly befuddling....

    No mod cards, and I don't like cockpit view so kindly consider GTFing yourself. :P

    Yes, there has to be something wrong with the very setup of the game, what it is beats me!

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    I just checked Homestead with the track lines on and they are lined up with the white painted lines and if you check my video above I'm way inside those lines every second. Also, the exclamation triangle is there right at the very start of every race before I do anything at all. The Drivatars...

    Unfortunately that doesn't work either, here is Prague a few minutes ago running solo and still exclamation triangled… Very frustrating.

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    After trying several ways I finally got a race on YouTube The way I did it was to launch the GeForce app at the beginning of the race and hit record. Worked like a charm. As you can see at the end, the Near Me section of the leaderboards is blank. However, the Windows Firewall is fully...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    Excuse me for being dense, but everything I've read either requires an Xbox or an earlier version of Forza to upload to YouTube or download or do just about anything else. This is all I get on my screen and there seems to be no options. Is there a tutorial that actually applies to Forza 7 on PC...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    I just recorded and saved an even slightly faster and 100% clean race. I've read about half a dozen links on how to get it to be visible outside the game and all seem to require Upload Studio on an Xbox which I don't have. What is the best way to get this race posted?

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    I read your reply and reran exactly the same race with identical settings. This time I was meticulous in not touching any line, even though the rules apparently allow you to be two wheels in I was four wheels in every moment of the race. Ran a 37.327, placed first, should have been #35 and...

    I just ran Homestead in Rain with Friction Off against two Drivetars at 100%. Won the race and my time SHOULD be showing as 64th but I'm nowhere to be seen. What is the missing mystery setting?

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    Yes, I am sure that you are a certified genius. :) As for the leaderboards I have the exclamation triangle in my lap times (and so do the drivetars) but I am never in the leaderboards. I have tried with dozens of cars on several tracks and with Friction on and off. No difference, unfortunately...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    You, sir, are a certified genius. That setting of the outside deadzone to 65 massively helped the braking which was pretty well unusable with the default settings. Now the only question I have left is how the #$%& do you get onto the leaderboards. I'm running a homologated car, I set the 6th...

    Thank you so much for your reply and my apologies for the delay in replying, but I wanted to wait until I had everything set up and working. I purchased a US$35 little computer stand from Staples then just added a plywood platform to the bottom where I was able to bolt in the pedals and weighed...

    Kudos on clarity! You would be a prized advantage to Amazon! Later Edit: Just found a Logitech G920 new for US$185 so I'm jumping on that. Looks like I'll be racing soon. Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for your reply, as it certainly helps. In my area I'm finding a lot of Logitech Driving Force versions on Craigslist and Kijiji but nothing of the more modern ones and unfortunately the new price is prohibitive at my level and with my penny-pinching wife. I'm having a tough time buying...

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    Ok bear with me as in 30+ years of computing this is the very first video game I want to play (other than my stint with SimCity before it sucked). I went to a friend's and he had Forza 7. It was running like crap since it was on an old AMD CPU with an equally old Radeon card (don't know which...

    M.2 in RAID 1 or 10?

    I believe you on that one I'm just surprised that they would essentially be merging the Z87 series and X99 chipsets. Given that the two platforms have been around for so many years, it's somewhat unexpected. Well, let me count myself among the ones who will be perfectly happy with...

    Set up home intranet for specific devices/user accounts

    Oh yeah, my kid will hate it too but I'm bigger than she is so I rule. :) Question on #3, how did you block the "services by schedule" and would it be possible to set it up so that they access an intranet during the blocked hours? I still want to give her content but only what I've vetted and...

    Set up home intranet for specific devices/user accounts

    I have an extremely precocious 4 year old kid who reads better than my 30something brother in law. She has grown up with iPads and PCs and now I'm very concerned that she's going to start exploring sites which aren't exactly Disney or Barbie. BTW, yes, we do limit her screen time and supervise...

    Kaby Lake and Skylake-X as well or ?

    M.2 in RAID 1 or 10?

    Yes, fair enough, as there are limits to any technology (and common sense). I did read that this Q4's expected Optane launch would be for Xeons alone, so has there been any information released to expected it for Skylake-X (which is for all intents and purposes a Xeon anyway).

    M.2 in RAID 1 or 10?

    I'm sure you'll agree that there are always users who want to get the absolute fastest no matter what, so they (albeit not me) might think that if 2.4Gb/s is good, 4.8Gb/s is better. :)

    M.2 in RAID 1 or 10?

    It would seem that the Optane type drives are just a few months away so that would definitely fit into my time frame. As for why a RAID wouldn't speed up that drive, is it because it would hit the PCIe data transfer limit?

    M.2 in RAID 1 or 10?

    I asked this question over on Intel Processors as I'm starting to figure out the configuration for my Skylake-X system (yeah, I know I'm way early but I have to start saving my pennies now so I need to know the approximate cost of all this stuff). So the question is: I'd also like to get the...

    Saving up for killer Skylake-X system, please help configure it

    12 slots would be a dream come true. I want to throw so much RAM at Photoshop that it could never use it all up! I'd also like to get the fastest SSD system that is affordably achievable. Is it possible to set up M.2 in RAID1 or 10? Is there a faster way to get a fairly limited volume on C...

    Saving up for killer Skylake-X system, please help configure it

    I'm already starting to put $$$ aside for the system which I fully expect to be my last conventional PC as I want to keep it for several years at which time I don't know if we'll be using holograms or bioembedded circuits or whatever. Unlike many of my builds, sound is not an issue as it's...

    Skylake-E to get new LGA3647 socket

    Sorry, I guess I just saw the photo and jumped the gun. What I really want is more RAM sockets, so I guess that there is no way of knowing if Skylake-E will be set up with more than the 8 on LGA2011?

    Skylake-E to get new LGA3647 socket

    With Broadwell-E's performance gains being minimal at best, I'm now setting my eyes on this monster as I'm drooling over the 12 RAM slots bigtime. I wonder whether Intel by then will have noted resistance to the i7-6950X's extremely elevated pricing and end up placing the Skylake-E's top chip...

    Win10 Weird Select Text Problem

    Thanks for the test. Did exactly the same thing and no paste. But if I click after the mouseup on the g it works fine. Did it with three different mice and always the same. Very strange! Any ideas?

    Win10 Weird Select Text Problem

    Very strange problem with Win10 selection process. In previous OS (on all my PCs and all my mice) I can select text and then copy in one swoop. Win10 makes me select text and then click before copying. Is that standard behavior for this OS. If so, it sucks

    How to remap MS Comfort mouse leftclick to thumb button?

    I've probably owned 5 or 6 MS Intellimouse units only because the software allowed you to have the thumb button take the place of the left click (and drag, etc.). Of course they're now long gone and I just bought a MS Comfort 4500 with the assurances that I could do that but of course MS gives...
