Re: Here we go again MS prompting against using Firefox & Chrome!!

They are not dictating anything. They are not forcing you to use Edge or anything else. They are simply doing the modern form of advertising which is to knock the competition's product.

Re: Laptop USB port burnt and smoking - pencil stuck in it!

Melted plastic is probably not a problem but if any of the pencil lead (Graphite) is still there it is a conductor and could also result in a short circuit. To be honest I am surprised that this...

Re: How do I find an email addy so that I can delete it ???

Maybe your friend has set up a restricted sender list and has not included you on it or your address is somehow marked as spam. A quick phone call to clarify might be the best solution unless the...

Re: Viewing JPEG files

There is no codec for jpeg files. Most graphics programs can read and display them. If you are having problems then try installing the free program "paint.net" and opening them opening them in it.

Re: Macrium questions

Hi Cantrel

Yes you can call MS but they will ask for you to email them with a copy of the new motherboard receipt. At least that is what they did with me.
