Microsoft meets GDPR requirements

Tony Pizza   Window 10 file manager is slow, “working on it”. I’m considering trying Free Commander. Looks like something I used on DOS and WIn 3.1. Any other recommendations? What sites are safe to download from? I forgot what ones to avoid.

Andy Toth   What’s the secret to sharing drives between computers on Windows 10 Home? The computers are all in the same workgroup. I’ve set the properties of the drive enable sharing and allow everyone full control. I enabled file and printer sharing in Network and Sharing Center. Not using passwords to connect is also activated.  Every time there’s an update all file sharing and the homegroup disappear.

Lisa Toth   I have a couple of magazines I get digitally as downloads. One I received recently is 22 plus MB. I’d like to store them to read more than once.  What is the best way?

Donn Coon   Like many other CIPCUG members I’ve heard about, my latest Firefox download has provided a miserable browser. I have another browser (Chrome) but it’s nearly as miserable for me to work with.

Lisa Toth   Please comment on the upcoming update in the fall.  What is “redstone” and explain tabs in programs/apps coming then?

John Weigle   My CanoScan 97000F scanner died after the last Windows 10 update. It keeps insisting that the driver might not have installed correctly and to reinstall it. I’ve done that several times without a change.
