The workaround is to open Google Docs and create a new Document and drag all of your pictures into this document. Switch the document to landscape mode and then go to File->'Page Setup' and adjust the margins to ".1". Then go through ...

As long as the PC's BIOS supports booting from USB, you shouldn't see any difference in hardware recognition between running that way and running the same distro from a hard drive. However, that isn't really the kind of issue you will see. The issues you are likely to get are to do with pen drive reliability. It is important to remember that pen drives and ...

To elaborate on the above comment, it is almost certainly not possible if it is OEM software. However, there may be a solution for your specific program. Also vendors often offer upgrades at significantly reduced prices for OEM software, and every now and then it's worth it. I would recommend Google as well as the vendor's website, and search for ...

You could do this in Windows 98, and as long as the machine would boot with the same drivers already installed for the previous hardware, it would run and let you install any drivers needed for the new hardware. Since XP (probably NT 4.0, but I have no direct experience with that version), if Windows detects a "significant" hardware change on startup, it'll ...

Yes, you are going to have to reinstall Windows, as it has noticed a change in the motherboard and the Windows 7 license key is tied to the original motherboard.

It can vary between operating systems, but usually the clipboard size is limited to the amount of total memory a single process can allocate, so it depends on how much RAM you have, as well as the CPU architecture (processes on 32-bit systems are usually limited to 2 or 4 GB each). This is true at least for Windows and X11-using systems; I haven't ...

Is "Programme" empty? If not, don't touch it. The US version of Windows has that folder named "Program Files". (Which you don't have.) Note that the US version does not call it "Programs" -- that one may be superfluous. Note that you also have "Benutzer" instead of "Users". You also have "Documents and Settings" and the German version of it ...

Interesting theoretical question. First, let's be clear: Intel's 64-bit architecture is actually AMDs 64-bit extensions to Intel's 32-bit architecture. That's the origin of the very technical term of x86_64. So are you asking about "Intel"-specific CPUs, or about the x86_64 architecture in general? Second, are you writing or editing the Wikipedia article ...

Why do companies like Microsoft still make 32 bit operating systems, when everyone have at least a dual core CPU? There is enough of the market who do not have a 64-bit processor contained within their device. It also does take more engineering resources on Microsoft's part to offer both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Microsoft believes it ...

Its called cache-as-ram. Actually you can do a whole operating system based on this, and with the modern big-sized caches it could end up even having a gui (check ...

You don't actually need the user name to put something in their home structure. Simply starting ~/ will direct it to their home, so ~/Library/ will go to the current user's [Boot Drive]/Users/[User Name]/Library/. If you need to install for all users, use /Library/ instead. I guess it's the equivalent of Windows' %appdata%/ If you really need the ...
