 If you are running Windows 8, you should do the free upgrade to Windows 8.1, it is so much better.

I have two problems out here in Ennis, Montana.
Both involve Forwarding messages.

 Q.1. When I forward a message and start to type something in the forwarded message, it inserts my name in italics. Do you know how I can get rid of that?

A. In Windows live mail, at the top click on File, Options,   Signatures, and uncheck “Add signatures to all outgoing messages” or check “Don’t add signatures to replies and forwards.”

Q. 2. When I forward a message that has come into me that is NOT in html for formatting and has a hyperlink I wish to pass along, the hyperlink  in the forwarded message remains in black and I believe it cannot act as a hyperlink that way. 

A. Put your cursor at the very last letter in the Link and hit the space bar and if it underlines it, you are in business. Sometime you think you are at the end and you are not, you might have to do a back space to get to the very end of the link. (Mike Seiler told me about this tip.)

Response: Joe, Many thanks. Both worked. You are right, it is hard to tell if one is on last letter of link. Seems to be good to go now. Again, many thanks,, and all good wishes.  Henry


 Q. Joe, I cannot open the attachments in your emails. 

 A. If you do not have Microsoft WORD then Bob Brown recommends Libre Office. When you download, be sure they don’t try to give you McAfee or some other program.

Subject: Colorado Doctor Finds Way To Treat Common Vertigo
 (This sounds great to me. Joe)

 This is something to try if you ever get the dizzies.  It is different from what the doctor usually does at his office.  This you can do yourself at home, and the studies say it works better.


 Q. How do I stop Word from double spacing?

 A. Open Word, click on the arrow to the Right of Paragraph, look down a little and under Line Spacing use the down arrow and select Single, then at the bottom click on Default, select: All Documents …. then click OK.

Response: THANKS Joe! now the default is single line!! THANK YOU! :)

The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI, pronounced U-E-F-I or like "unify" it is the first thing you see when you turn on your computer, and it starts your operating system.  UEFI is meant to replace the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) originally in all PCs.

 Microsoft: We have more than 1.5 million Windows 10 'Insiders'
Microsoft officials say there are about 450,000, or 30 percent of its total registered Windows 10 Insiders, actively testing the next Windows release (I am one of the 30%. Joe)

I was thinking that if your car gave you as much trouble as your computer, we all would be walking.
