  1. Welcome!! Question MrGroove - What is the purpose for the groovyPost.com Forum? Answer Ever since I started groovyPost.com, I've usually get 5-10 emails a day from readers with Simple -> Complex computer questions. Because I get so many I'm not always able to respond as fast as I would like. Additionally, many of the questions are different versions of the same question. So, with this in mind I've decided to add a Community Technical Support Forum to groovyPost.com. Over the next few months I'll be trying to direct people to ask their questions HERE rather than in email.

Today it was in : https://www.groovypost.com/howto/use-filters-in-microsoft-excel-to-find-data-faster/#respond I tried in both FireFox 84.0.2 and Edge. When I click on the comments button, nothing happens. No comments are displayed, on the #respond is added to the link.

  3. I found this MS documentation for Scripts. Currently it only appears to be for Excel online ... Office Scripts documentation - Office Scripts | Microsoft Docs But you should be able to play with it there. That being said, when I tried to find it, I did not see the "Automate" tab them mention ... <sigh>

  7. I asked this question several months ago and tried several of the suggestions, but I still cannot enter the Bios. I have a custom built computer using a MSI motherboard (990FXA-GD80 with 24-GB mem running the latest version of Win-10 / 64). When tapping "delete" upon startup the message "Entering Setup" appears. The screen turns gray and that's it. Nothing happens. Unfortunately I have misplaced the MSI installation disk.

  9. Hello everyone, My member name is Mobear410 and my real name is Thom Dickey. My website is currently under construction or I would provide it here. I am 63 years old and I have been using computers since D.O.S. 3.0 was released prior to windows 1.0 and the internet. I was a sysop, remote sysop and co sysop on a few BBS systems in the San Diego County. I currently live in Oregon about 75 miles from the California border in the Rogue Valley. I am so attached to the internet these days that I think of myself as a internet junkie. I just can't get enough of the internet. Should we ever have a

  16. FWIW, I just had a conversation via chat with Amazon. They wouldn't give me a price change refund however, they instead told me to return the item and just repurchase it at the lower price. I have to say, it's a hassle but $22 is $22....

  17. I have the hard drive of my Toshiba laptop equally divided into C: and D: Drive C contains all the progs and data. Drive D was used for Backup. But when I created a recovery disk for drive C it asked if I wanted to retain the original backup. I opted for deleting, and it cleaned my Drive D. Now it has no contents with nearly 230 GB space. Could I expand the Drive C taking a part of the space of Drive D? I look forward to a solution that would not affect any existing contents. Theo

  21. If you don't want to compact PST files, you can try one thing. You can transfer mailbox content from one PST file into new multiple PST files. There's no need to use any 3rd party tool for this. All you need to use is Outlook client. It has few built-in features which you can use here, such as: Archive, Import & Export, Move to Folders. Also, you can use Drag & Drop feature of Outlook client. Hope the shared information would be helpful here. Thanks and best regards.

  22. To get that classic F8 behavior back we need to restore the legacy boot menu policy. To do this, hit the Win + X keyboard combination and launch and elevated command prompt. When the command prompt opens, run the following: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy That’s really all there is to it. Now, when your computer boots up, you can mash the F8 key to view the classic Advanced Boot Options. If you want to return the boot menu back to normal, you can use this command: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

  24. I reformatted the laptop after installing a new hard drive in my Sony Vaio and now it isn't letting me use the brightness function keys anymore. The function volume keys still work, it's just the brightness ones that aren't going very well. Is there a software requirement or something I'm missing?

  25. Hi @grooveDexter, I encountered the exact same issue as bananajoe, only my Brightness Fn keys are not working. I tried what you mentioned, but still didn't work. I tried adjusting the brightness manually via Power Control settings but it didn't work as well. Any other ideas ?

  26. Can’t see this in Photoshop but in Fireworks under File > HTML Setup > Table Tab, there are options for “Nested tables, no spacers” and “Single table, no spacers”. Not used them myself but it sounds like what you need.

  27. You can try "Move to folders" feature of MS Outlook 2003 to split PST file into multiple parts. This may take a lot of time and technical understanding. Follow the steps given below: 1. Launch MS Outlook. 2. Click File tab > New > Outlook Data File. 3. A dialog box “New Outlook Data File” will appear. Select Office Outlook Personal Folder File (.pst) and click OK. 4. A new dialog box “Create Microsoft Personal Folders” will pop up. Type a display name for this new PST file. 5. Now select the folder that you want to move to the new PST file. You may move one or more items to new PS

  31. Today we've released a new site to join the groovyPublishing family -- http://groovyAndroid.com. We're excited about groovyAndroid because it's our first of what will be several very targeted sites where we will be digging deeply into a specific technology to provide Tips, Tricks, News, Reviews and of course, groovy content. The launch has been very "quiet" up to this point as we work out a few bugs with the site and play with the theme a bit. That being said, if anyone has any feedback, would love to hear it. Thanks! -Steve

  32. A few days ago I got an email from my provider that my disksspace for my blog reached its limit. And when I asked him what caused this, he told me I have been posting full sized images, instead of resized ones. So, big lesson for me: "Start resizing before posting/blogging". On my laptop at home, and on my xp machine at work, this isnt a problem. But I am also a heavy "Wordpress for Android" user. So the question is, how do I resize an image to at least 50% of the original quality on my Android?

  34. For these buttons to work it requires Sony's proprietary software. Luckily, the packages required t operate the Brightness buttons isn't bloated like their Vaio Care crapware. To set it up, visit http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DRIVER and type in your model number. On a Vaio this should be found below the bottom-right corner of the screen. Once on the model's support page, download the following: SYSTEM COMPONENTS Sony® Firmware Extension Parser Device Driver Sony® Shared Library NOTEBOOK CONTROL AND UTILTIESSony® Notebook Utilities Note that this should include two

  35. Here's the real deal. There is a device detection issue with the 2730h build in which the application thinks the device is an NDIS ("LAN") device. With the build and firmware previous to 2730h, the device was indeed in "LAN" mode so there were no issues connecting. Since you upgraded the device to WinMB, the build sometimes thinks the device is in "LAN" mode (ROOT CAUSE) so it uses a certain set of functions to establish the connection. Obviously, these commands are incorrect so you reach said errors. As a quick workaround, you can either re-run the application or hit the "Detect Device"

  37. Not sure I understand 100% your question. When you delete an email in Outlook, it will be moved to your deleted items folder. When you delete it from the deleted items folder, it will remain for 15-30 days if you're connected to a corporate email server how that setting is set by the system administrator. If you're using Outlook at home and NOT connected to Microsoft exchange, your email is usually stored in a PST file and you can recover the emails however it's not easy. Here is a guide for corrupting a PST file and recovering the email using SCANPST - http://www.groovypost.com/forum/micros

  38. Quick question for you groovy excel ppl out there. I'm working with a vendor and need to calculate the discount and/or increase. I know there is a simple excel formula I can use. Just looking for a tip for it. Thanks!
    1 point
  39. Here are the formulas I use in Excel: Percent Increase =sum(NEW-OLD)/OLD Percent Decrease or Discount =sum(OLD-NEW)/OLD Example: Let's say I bought a stock for $50 and now I'm going to sell it for $125. What is the % Increase of the stock sale? In Excel I would enter =sum(125-50)/50 and it would give me 150% increase. For a full explanation along with screenshots, take a look at this how to tutorial: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/calculate-percentage-increases-or-decreases-in-excel/

  41. Free text services and apps typically use a 5 digit common-short-code (CSC). These CSC are expensive short numbers used primarily by large businesses, licenses range from $500-$1500 per month so an individual will almost never ever have one of these. By default, most wireless carries accept incoming texts and phone calls from them. If someone is texting you from such a number, there is no way to tell who it is. But, you still have a few options. You can lookup the shortcode provider and make a complaint directly to them, in which case their account might be deleted and in the

  42. OK. This is how it's done.(I'm using Word 2007, but it makes no difference what version) Select page paper size and format the margins to use the minimum. Using the Insert Text box, make a text box with your phone number or text as you prefer. Size the box in a vertical position. Right click the box and choose Format Text Box. Go to Layout tab and high light In Front Of Text, select Advance De-select Move object with text. Choose Line - dashed Move the box to bottom left corner of page (be sure to stay with-in the margins). Select box and right click to copy. Paste. Do this as many times as

  45. Hi Mike - I don't fully understand your question so before I post an answer I thought I would see if I can get more info. Where exactly is this dropdown on your iPad? Is this when typing an email somewhere? And to confirm, you said you have 2 gmail accounts on your iPad that your trying to use as email so I assume that is the contacts your talking about.

  47. i'm a pretty groovy chap and i really have NO idea where to start looking for this.... That being said, everything about outlook is a database (the .pst and the .ost) so i would guess nothing really ever gets deleted, it just gets removed until you compress your .pst file using the tools interface. perhaps that tool called scanpst -http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287497 can fix you up? No idea if it can repair the pst and bring back the Outlook DL's but it's worth a try. groovy dude? u see this?

  48. Hey Mr Groove! Love the site and really enjoyed your last article! I have an idea for a new article on groovypost for you! You need to write something on all the different search syntax that can be used in outlook 2007! I only use a few of the features but would love to get the inside scoop.
