Normally I wouldn't bump an old thread, but when reading Karen's figments I couldn't help myself. A conventional HDD does benefit greatly from defrag. Stating it is pointless to do on modern hardware/systems, is just incorrect. A tool like "O&O Defrag" can perform different defrag methods depending on how you are using your file system (i.e. database, ...

I have tried this in Google Chrome. I have two monitors, so I docked it to the right side of my right monitor and then stretched it out to the left side of my left monitor and it worked fine. This works best if the monitors are the same size and there is not a large gap between them.

I chose to run Linux primarily and dedicate a VGA connector to it, while passing through the additional graphics card to the VM. Described here (superuser.SE) and here (Multiheaded NVIDIA Gaming). It should work but I haven't worked on it enough to say for sure.

You're looking for a bare metal hypervisor like gronostaj said, but instead of ESXi, i would recommend you Unraid. The main difference is probably that you have to buy a somewhat expencive license for gpu forwarding with ESXi whereas a 59$ unraid license includes pretty much all features but is limited to 6 hard drives. Although one thing has to be said, ...

Sounds like you need a bare-metal hypervisor. As opposed to hosted hypervisors (such as VirtualBox), with bare-metal hypervisors there is no OS that the hypervisor runs in. Instead, it runs directly on hardware consuming minimal amount of resources and only lets you run virtual machines. This image (from Wikipedia) shows the difference: These types of ...

That is the recording tab of the audio dialog. What is happening here is not that your computer detects you pressing the key, but that the mic in the earbuds hears the clicking sound it makes when you press the button.

I have had the same issue with a brand new pc configured with Windows 10. Applications such as Word 2003 (and excel and so on...), Wordpad, Notepad++, OpenOffice could not print (and no error message was reported).

You need just a boot entry in BCD which starts "install.wim" or "boot.wim" - a so called recovery loader. Then you chainload bootmgr from grub (bootmgr and \boot\BCD should be on active partition) Bootmgr reads BCD and loads "install.wim". By default Windows creates three loaders for every Windows 7/8/10 installation: Windows loader resume from ...

What you need is simply a USB-ethernet adapter. Unofortunately it totally depends on the tablet and the Operating System on the tablet whether or not a given ubs-ethernet adapter is compatible with it. As far as I know you can't do it with Apple tablets. There are some solutions for Android based tablets and tablets running Windows Mobile. For Windows based ...

Windows does not natively support this, but it is possible. You will need to use a 2nd pc and use RDP, VNC, TeamViewer, etc... to connect to it. This desktop will then become one window that you can size and alt-tab to. Alternatively, you can use a Virtual Machine, such as Oracle VirtualBox, install Windows into it, and run your applications in there. You ...

You can use the following keyboard shortcuts to get the behavior you want: Win + ← moves the current window to the left half of the screen. Win + → moves the current window to the right half of the screen. Win + ↑ maximes the current window. Haven't used GridMove it but you might be able to get what you want.

I know this is an old posting; but, just for anyone else that is struggling with this, the best approach to take is to utilize PhantomJS as the browser. Since its headless, it quietly runs the browser steps and processes. Also, it has no issues if run as part of a Python script via windows scheduled task while not logged in. All you need to do is: swap out ...

Changing the size hasn't changed in Windows 10, it is still in system properties. All the "rules" that you can find are crap. Let Windows manage the size and by happy. To see the size of all folder, run TreeSizeFree as admin.

First you might have to try and boot into safe mode if you can't boot normally. Then, you can maybe try and uninstall the update.

Typically Web access remains unblocked in these filters, so a legal and functioning bypass would be to use remote desktop / teamviewer to a computer that you control and have rights to use. The logic here is that the web traffic is occurring off-network, which relieves the school's network of any responsibility. You're just receiving pictures of the result. ...

This used to be possible in Win XP but I don't believe it is possible to build a clean install from an installed operating system. You can create a System Image from Windows Backup and Restore and a recovery disk to launch the image restore. Before you do this you will want to shrink your partition to just larger than the space used on the HD. The image ...

As far as I know there is no fine-grained control mechanism on the client side. You can only do that if you run your own WSUS server and set the policy to the clients to update through that WSUS server. On your own WSUS you have full control over what to publish to the clients. E.g. on my WSUS I only supply English updates, no MUI's and I also keep a couple ...

I had this problem once, and it turned out the internal cable was loose inside the case that ran from the motherboard to the port. Make sure you are grounded (case plugged in, but power box switched off, hand on case), open the computer up with a screwdriver and unplug and re-plug all internal audio cables (front & back)

I can suggest the tool call "Desktops" made by Sysinternals. It allows you to have multiple desktops and switching between them with a key-combination.

The best way to determine which Bluetooth drivers are installed is to go through the vendor sdk (C++) which provides functions to determine the stack version that is installed.

Changing the keyboard settings is a user specific setting. This means, that whenever you change this, it changes for the currently logged in user only. If you login using remote desktop, or locally does not matter. Alternatively, a group policy could alter these settings too, but the group policy simply changes the setting during login.

One possibility is that Oh My Zsh renders Unicode characters, and that the issue is that those characters have different widths in a Windows console.

This answer on a closed question contains a link to a SevenForums thread on this issue. One of the users posted a solution he found on a Microsoft thread. Essentially this problem is caused by Windows security update KB3039066. I have found that uninstalling it and restarting (not just relogging) fixes the problem.
