  8. I have been trying to print my golf league book. I wanted a booklet. I have in the past printed it manually sheet by sheet. However, my last computer was stolen, and the new laptop has 2010. I hate it!! However, I digress.........When I try to print, I want 2 pages per sheet. The print drop down DOES NOT HAVE the "1 page per sheet"" line. Only in this document!?? Other documents previous to the beginning of the year do have this in the print options. I saved it to a pdf file and then I could print 2 pages per sheet.Any ideas why the pages/sheet option is missing??
  9. A lot of the programs I have running on my computer came with HTML help files. When the I use the in-program links to open them Chrome just spits out the following error: This browser does not display help installed on your local machine. Please use another browser to view the help. For more information, see Chromium issue 47416 (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=47416). This is super frustrating because I don't know how to set it up so local files will use IE or FF instead, while still keeping Chrome as my primary browser. I would prefer to just use Chrome for everything though. Does anyone have a fix for this? [This is running Chrome version 25.0.1364.172 m]

  19. How do you get video off of the new iPad, and into a PC running Windows XP? Apple's tech tells me it can't be done because they didn't write code to make ICloud work with XP, only Vista and Windows 7. Short videos of less than 60 seconds will work, but not anything longer. I tried cut and paste, and the Microsoft Wizard. No luck. Thanks, Chris
