  1. Hi @Ron S Sorry if it's not clear. I need to update the site to make it more clear. We've disabled commenting on some of the newer articles we're written about. We have been plagued with an avalanche of SPAM comments and tech support requests -- which is why I've created this forum here. My suggestion is -- create a new Forum post and link to the article and we can have a discussion and answer questions in a more civilized way. The website comment system just isn't very.... modern and is really time consuming to combat the SPAM. Looking for a good solution to that. Sorry for the
  2. Question from reader: Steve, Do you have anything in your library regarding the use "Signal" for messaging on PC, Android, Etc? Hello! We don't have a lot of content on groovyPost regarding this app however, we do have a few articles: https://www.groovypost.com/tags/signal/ You can also search around here: https://www.groovypost.com/search/ Regarding supported devices, Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux are all supported - https://www.signal.org/download/ From what I know, you can setup Signal on your mobile phone, setup an a
  3. How to Change Size of Desktop Icons: Right-Click the Windows Desktop Hover over View > and select from Small, Medium or Large Icons That should do it for ya.
  4. I assume you did all the standard stuff - reboot etc...?
  5. When I had issues with my system, it was a problem with my Bluetooth receiver. It was external to the system (you screwed it onto plugs on the back of the motherboard). It's an antenna I guess you could say. The problem was the same as you describe, it sounded "out of range". The fact that you moved your BT400 receive to another box and it worked just fine.... kinda kills the idea that it's the receiver. The next thing I would check is a different USB port. Perhaps there is some damage on the USB port. Have you tried to move the BT400 receiver to a different port?
  6. Hi @Crazichic - Can you explain a little better what you mean by "virtual to logon a loptop"? Not sure I follow you.
  7. Hi @AndreiT, I don't have an ASUS laptop however, on my Lenovo, using it's power savings software, you're able to put the battery into a mode which extends its life. When it does this, the battery will only charge up to 70-80% capacity. Many say this is a good thing as it prevents problems if your lithium battery remains at 100% indefinitely. So, my suggestion is to take a look at the ASUS power savings settings. You likely enabled a "Battery Saver" feature or something similar to this. Turn that off and it should charge to 100% again.
  8. HI, Normally you don't want to interrupt your system when it's restarting however, anything more than 15-20 minutes normally means something is wrong. You should hard restart your PC by holding down the power button until the computer turns off. Restart the computer after and you should be fine.
  9. hi @Jacques G Lerner - Here is a site with a few options: https://www.minitool.com/news/device-not-migrated.html I don't think this is a USB so you can ignore all that. I assume the drive is plugged in directly to your motherboard or PCIe card correct? That article has a few fixes you can try. I've personally never run into the "device not migrated" before, that's a new one for me. Here is another article: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/changed-sata-ports-ssds-and-hdd-device-not/6ff9bc60-dd4c-4d40-9b50-3bdc60bc7506 It mentions using EasyBCD to correct the
  10. Hi @jglerner So it sounds like the new Gagabyte NMVe drive died so you put the old SSD back into it. It's a bit hard to follow you above due to the typos but I'll try to help. My suggestion would be to put the old drive back in and then go into the BIOS and make sure the bios can see the drive. From there boot up. If you do this, what happens when you boot up? Does Windows start with the Gagabyte NVMe drive?
  11. Hi there @jglerner - Which brand of NVMe drive do you have? Also, is this a laptop or a desktop? Did you install the drive yourself? I assume it's plugged into an M.2 slot correct? When you go into Disk Management for Windows, do you see the drive in there? Thnx
  12. Heya Rob, A few good answers can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/ask/questions/Tx1HS4EOW8SBDBC The short answer - no. However, you might be able to use the FireStick + another USB stick in the same TV to leverage additional storage on that USB device. Are you trying to add more content to it?
  13. Hi Michael, You know the saying.... if it sounds too good to be true... Adding a USB drive to your computer is not going to speed up Windows. It's also not going to protect you if your primary hard drive fails. Sounds like a gimmick and a scam. There is no magic when it comes to speeding up your computer. The best way to increase the performance of your computer is to replace the main drive of your PC or laptop with an NVMe SSD or Legacy SSD drive (if your computer doesn't support NVMe M.2). https://www.groovypost.com/reviews/what-is-nvme-m2-ssd-drive
  14. In todays world, there is no great answer for avoiding SPAM other than changing your email address daily.... Alternatively, if that doesn't sound like a good plan to you, my next suggestion would be to use an email provider like Outlook.com or Gmail.com. Granted, they won't find all the SPAM sent to you but, they will get most of it and you can mark whatever they miss as SPAM to help train the AI to do a better job in the future.
  15. One thing to keep in mind, VPN providers might actually throttle you as well. Something to keep in mind.
  16. Negative. Still not possible on Windows. Microsoft Outlook for Mac includes a keyboard shortcut but not the Windows Version of Microsoft Outlook. For now, the best option is "Right-Click + L or V" as mentioned in the first post.

    Windows 10 to 7

    Hi @metzu - unfortunately, it's not that simple. Depending on how long ago you upgraded your OS to Windows 10, you may or may not be able to do a downgrade. Here's a few articles on the topic which explain things in detail. These are our own Articles on the topic: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/downgrade-windows-10-to-windows-7-windows-81/ https://www.groovypost.com/howto/downgrade-windows-10-previous-windows-version/ Give these a read and report back if needed here. Thanks! -S
  18. Are these laptops or desktops? Sounds like they are desktops given you mentioned (mouse and keyboard). That's really funky. The update for windows should not impact video or keyboard during the boot process. Are you not getting anything during the post/boot cycle before windows? If it's an OS issue, you will get video in BIOS at least... If you're not, I'd verify the monitors are plugged in correctly and hard reboot the boxes. If you still can't get video you either have an issue on the motherboard, video card or monitor. If it's happening on two individual boxes..... that's a huge c
  19. OK got it. Makes sense. Smartscreen isn't something I ever enable on IE/Edge etc... But if you nuke it, shouldn't hurt anything I can think of.
  20. Here's an article with the latest version of Office - https://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft-word-mac-mail-merge/
  21. No, you shouldn't be getting CERT issues. You should first check with your email admin. And then, I would remove the mailbox from outlook and re-add it again. See if that fixes it.
  22. There are a few tools out there you can search for, however, in most cases, the data will be lost if the ZIP file is corrupted. WinZip has a KB article on how to repair a ZIP file. You might check it out: After installing WinZip, using the following commands: http://kb.winzip.com/kb/entry/126/
