Never understood how they so completely rolled over when WordPerfect came out.
I tried but I could never get used to WordPerfect. But it dominated legal offices for many years.

Windows Seven and XP Pro once bought and loaded was a whole lot nicer and easier to maneuver around WORD..
I think that is just a matter of personal opinion. I first started with PeachText and DOS, then moved to WordStar, then Word and Windows when they first came out. And I have been migrating to the latest version of Windows and now Office 2016 ever since.

There is a learning curve, no doubt. But I found once I got used to each new version, it became just as, if not more intuitive than the last.

....wow its nothing like the good ol days!!
Not sure what you mean by good ol days. Word never came with Windows. It has always been a separate program. Starting with Windows 95 there was WordPad - a rudimentary word processors, but it was not Word.

Word has always let you save documents to other drives and folders. And you can change the default locations too. The procedure to do that is a bit different depending on which version of Office/Word you have.

With Office 365, the default location is now OneDrive.

Not sure what to say. On mine, when I look for Word, it finds it. You may have to reinstall it. If you see it in Control Panel > Programs and Features, you might be able to do a repair on it.

Unless you formatted the drive, it should still be there. Did you search for it?

36
Hmmm, it still show .17 in my PM and in Edge it is 1.23.0.

37
And I am sure it will work just fine. It is just too bad these blockers are even necessary in the first place. Oh well.

38
I see the same things, Corrine.

@satrow - I see those too but neither shows if those versions are the most recent available and neither have a "Check for updates" link.

One thing that just surprised me with the Edge version is that uBO was disabled. I don't know when that happened - nothing yelled at me. And when I tried to move the slider over to enable it again, I got a pop-up that said,

Quote
The newest version of "uBlock Origin" has been disabled because it requires additional permissions.
When I move the slider to enable it again, I am not prompted to give it any additional permissions, but it is enabled again.  ???





39
Not sure how I feel about this - yet. There does not seem to be an easy way to determine if the installed version of uBO is the most recent. I say, "not sure" because it was not something I worried about, or even checked, before. I'm confusing myself.  ???

Having all that may not be helping your computer's performance in general but I don't see it affecting these scores. But then I don't use any of those products. Windows Defender, especially in Windows 10, is just fine, as is Windows Firewall, IMO. At least none of my systems have ever been compromised with that setup. I do have Malwarebytes as a supplemental scanner - but then I feel everyone should have a supplemental scanner regardless their primary anti-malware solution of choice.


If me, I would disable Webroot and Voodooshield and see what happens. If no change in performance, you can enable them again - or just leave them disabled.

Hmmm, except removing the data (coaxial) cable does not reset the modem or connection. That typically takes either an internal command from the admin menu, a press of a reset button on the modem (if it has one) or the most common way is with a power recycle - unplugging the power connector, waiting 30 - 60 seconds, then plugging the modem back in. I don't know what might have happened by disconnecting the coax cable. I suspect it was coincidental rather than an actual reset.


The difference between 66.9 and 77 is really not that great and could be explained by simple changes in network traffic.


For example, I have made no changes to my computer or my network and just now today, Speedometer results for Edge were 93.9. compared to 85.1 yesterday.

Well, again, if your contract says "up to" 60, then technically, 25 still complies with your contract.

Edge 31.4
PM 14.2

I think I have problem with my internet connection...
It is probably more to do with your service contract with your provider and not an actual "problem". Check your speeds with Speedtest.net and Testmy.net. Then check your contract to make sure you are getting what you pay for. If not, contact your ISP and complain. Hopefully, the contract states a minimum and not something vague like “up to” some speed.

I've been using Edge as my default for a few weeks now and I have to say, I like it. AFAIK, every site I have visited has displayed properly - certainly quickly. Including some that my previous default, PM, refused to render properly. My water/trash/sewer utility company's website for example, didn't like PM and is a primary reason I gave Edge a chance again one the "new" Edge came out. That said, I suspect it was the utility company's rejection of PM rather than PM failing to render it.

I just ran that Speedometer test on Chrome, Edge, FF, IE, and PM. Surprisingly (I think), it failed to run with IE.

PM only scored 25.1. FF scored 73.8. Edge got 85.1 but Chrome eked out a win with a slight lead of 87.9. I re-ran Edge and Chrome 2 more times and got similar results, where Chrome slightly edged-out Edge (pun intended).

I have that program too but really don't use it that much. For me, my main concern is my all my document files. And I just make sure I have current backups for them.
