Q&A with CIPCUG Session 196

Rosalie Sherbrooke   Any comments/input from anyone in CIPCUG who has used Brave?

Lisa Toth   I want to make outlook the default mail used when I click on something to mail.  I tried to send a file from file explorer to myself and it opens Thunderbird. How can I change this?

Fred Krueger   How do I find out who runs a web page or who the webmaster is for a website, such as nextdoor.com

K Edward Lynch   Why does task manager show multiple instances of a browser when it’s running? Brave has 27 at the moment. Firefox has 6

Lisa Toth   I asked recently how to move books I didn’t buy on Amazon to my new Kindle fire.

Tony Pizza   What is the YouTube url “youtu.be”?

Andy Toth    3 Questions:

1.  I’ve installed win10 from an ISO on a wiped computer and now I am completing the setup process. It, pretty much, is forcing me to create a pin. I finished connecting to my local network by typing in the pass code via the keyboard.  Problem: The keyboard is not responding. I type but no characters (dots) appear in the ‘PIN’ text box with the cursor. What do I do?

2.  During the final setup process after installing win10 from an ISO, I was forced to sign in with a Microsoft (MS) account. While setting up the new computer I will still be using the old computer. What unforeseen problems will this cause me?

3.  I’ve been working from home for over a month. I login with my work computer and connect to the company network via a VPN application. I have had a problem keeping my home network interconnected. I had tech out who got it working. It’s no longer working. I discovered that my companies VPN program, allows me to work from home but changes my network connection to public and removes all shares on my network. Is there any software available that would allow me to protect my home network from this attack?

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 193

Tony Pizza  Your opinion on Brave? Sounds good

Lisa Toth  Found on Kim Komando’s site. Could be a good deed but I worry.

Lisa Toth   So why would I want to delay installing the win 10 2004?

Lisa Toth   If I leave for awhile it always asks me for my PW. Is there a setting that would change this? Or is it because I told it not to go to sleep.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 186

Lisa Toth   Should I leave my computer on the charger since I use it a lot or is it better to unplug it when I am done or overnight.

Fred Krueger   Once a month I get a report from Google on every place I have been the previous month. Don’t know what too think of this.

Fred Krueger   I am looking at small laptops or tablets, and I am wondering if the Surface Pro LTE is worth the price over the Surface Pro without the LTE?

Fred Krueger   About cord cutting, The way I understand it so far is we still need the cord for internet but can do away with paying for almost every thing else. Is this somewhat correct or am I missing something?

Fred Krueger   At the club meeting there was some mention of the latest Windows update, I looked in update history and all I see are updates for malicious removal tool for January and February
