A comment from Denise
How can anyone over 60 pass up your Senior Pass offer? it's worth twice as much as you're asking for it - and more. I bought mine the first day you offered it, and last Tuesday I had a chance to use it. I'm so glad I did. I thought my computer had a terrible virus, but Darcy came to the rescue. She cleaned up my computer and it is running great again! Thanks for offering Senior Pass. Denise.

A comment from Dianne
Darcy , thank you so very much for putting Thunderbird on my computer! So very happy with it. Its the best mail out there ! Thank You so very much again! Keep doing what you do to help us that are not so computer smart, you guys are great! Thank you again!

A comment from Rose Marie
Hi TC... I just wanted to send you another thank you as my husband's computer is backing up as you programed it. Also I was able to do a recovery disk on a flash drive for his computer. It worked just as you said it would. His computer had problems but you got those problems solved and got his back up working. He is very happy with the results. Just wanted to let you know that you have done another great job on fixing computers.

A comment from Eveline
Hi TC...Thank-you for all your help over the past few days. We are so pleased to have our computer working so much quicker and we feel better protected with the installation of Emsisoft. You gave us excellent advice on some “hardware” issues and we will deal with those also. Great to have an 8 year old machine performing well again. Fun to watch you moving around and I learned lots too. Thanks again! Regards, Eveline

A comment from George
Just wanted to you 2 for making the SeniorPass available. I have used your repair services twice in the past year and all I can say, you guys do great work. I was 110% satisfied both times. I just bought a Senior Pass and I sent a friend your way too.  Thanks for being there for us. George H.

Audrey wants to copy pictures from her laptop to her desktop
I have a desk top and a lap top computer. I have photo's on my lap top that I would like to put on desk top I just do not know if I can do this and was wondering if you know a way this can be done. Thank you so much and have had many of my problems solved by you people and was hoping for you to come thru again for me. Will await your reply 

Our answer
Hi Audrey. There are many ways to do this. The easiest way, without networking the two computers, is to use a USB flash drive.  Just copy all your pictures on your laptop to the flash drive, then plug the flash drive with your pictures in to your desktop. Then copy all the pictures from the flash drive to a folder or folders on your desktop. You might find our tip (here) on adding "Copy to" "Move to" to your Windows right-click menu handy for copying files to - from the USB flash drive.  An 8 or 16 GB flash drive should be plenty big enough to hold all your pictures.

You could also use DropBox, Microsoft One Drive, or Google Drive (if you have a Gmail account you have Google Drive) to do this. Just upload your files to one of these Cloud-storage applications and then download them on your desktop.

If you need anymore help, please let us know.

Lily wants a clipboard viewer
I have Windows 7 and am trying to put the clipboard viewer on my desktop. When I had XP I could do it. When I googled it, the program they showed to do it was a scam. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Our answer
Hi Lily, you're in luck. We have found the original Windows XP clipboard viewer and you can download it from here

Once you download it, you'll need to unzip it and right-click on clipbrd.exe and "Pin to Taskbar" and/or "Pin to Start". Like most of us, you're likely to download to your downloads folder and that's fine - you can leave it right there.

Cloudeight InfoAve

After you unzip "clipbrd.zip", right-click on clipbrd.exe and choose "Pin to taskbar". You can also pin it to your start menu. Once you have created a shortcut on your taskbar or Start menu, all you have to do is click it to see what's on your clipboard - just like you used to do in Windows XP.

Cloudeight InfoAve

This will work on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (all versions).

And for those who are using Windows 10 - the next version of Windows 10 due out in October will have a full-featured clipboard manager - something we think most people will find useful.

Sandi wants to know what's up with her D:\ drive.
I have a question for you. This is a fairly new computer and I clicked on "computer", right clicked on: Recovery Image-Drive D. It shows 1.90 GB Free space. 13.6 GB Used space, Capacity 15.5 GB. Why is this so full when Drive C only has 61.3 Used Space with Capacity of 853 GB. Would it help to Compress the drive...I am a novice when it comes to this stuff...so I don't want to mess up the files....Please advise what I should do. Appreciate your advice and help. Sandi B.

Our Answer
Hi Sandy. Do not touch your D:\ drive. It's called a recovery partition or recovery drive. If you ever needed to reset your computer back to its factory state, you'd need this partition. The partition is created from space from your C:\ drive - and the partition is just big enough to hold all the files necessary (including Windows) to return your computer to its factory state. So just leave it be -- and hope you never need it.

If you've upgraded to Windows 10 from a previous version of Windows, use System Reset to reinstall Windows; if you use the recovery drive, you'll wipe out everything on your computer and end up with an older version of Windows - the version that was installed when you purchased your PC.

Virginia wants to know how to tell if her computer is asleep... and more
This will probably sound like one of those extremely dumb questions - but how do I know if my computer is sleeping? I have never intentionally put one to sleep because I never learned how and I've used the PC since 1995. Didn't think it was necessary. Does it automatically go to sleep by itself when I shut down Chrome and just leave the computer alone overnight? The screen soon turns black, and then comes back to life when I click on the Chrome icon in the task bar.

Another question that's not related to this one. Does it hurt Cloudeight (or any other website) if I get called away from the computer and leave these websites open? Even if the monitor does turn black? I'm using an HP all-in-one, and Windows 10.

Our answer
Hi Virginia. There are no such things as dumb questions.

First, if you've never checked Power Options on your PC or made any changes, it's likely that your computer is set to go to "Sleep" after a certain period of inactivity. Also, your monitor, by default, has been set to dim after a certain number of minutes of inactivity. Both of these are set by default. They can be changed by going into Power Options. On Windows 10 you can access Power Options by right-clicking the Start button and clicking on Power Options in the menu, or just type Power Options in the taskbar search. It will appear as Power & sleep options in the search results.

OK. So how do you know if your computer is in sleep mode? Generally, if you have not used your computer for a period of time and you see that the power light is blinking slowly your computer is in sleep mode. Moving the mouse or touching the keyboard will usually be enough to wake the computer.

As for your last question - no it doesn't hurt a Web site if you look at for hours or if you walk away from your PC while your browser still has the Web site open. If the site you're viewing has a lot of scripts or flash content it may use up some of your computer resources... but it doesn't hurt the Web site or your computer... even if your monitor dims.

We hope this answers your questions!

Phyllis asks about Ad Remover
I was wondering if you could give me advice on a program called "Ad Remover"? Is it safe to download or is it going to be one of those nasty programs that destroy my computer? I get so sick of the ads that show up when I'm browsing on my computer. If this one isn't good, do you suggest any other program for blocking ads? Thanks, Phyllis

Our answer
Hi Phyllis. We're not big on ad blockers and Ad Remover is not free. It's $9.99 a month or $39.99 a year. The sites that rely on ads most are small mom & pop sites like ours - and we don't allow annoying pop-up ads on our sites. Blocking ads may make for cleaner web browser, but it cuts ad revenue to the sites who need it most. The on-the-page ads that fit into the site's content are one type of ad and they are far less intrusive and annoying than the pop-up ads that some sites use. And remember: Excessive popups may be caused by malware in the browser (PUPs & Malware add-ons).

If you're looking for a privacy ad-on for your browser that blocks some ads, we recommend Privacy Badger. It's free and it works with Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. Privacy Badger does not block all ads, but it blocks the worst ads, it's made and supported by EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) and we have tested it on Chrome and Firefox.

If you use Chrome, Firefox or Opera, take a look at Privacy Badger. It's free, safe and has a lot of nice features - including giving you a choice of whether or not to block ads on certain sites.

Read more about and/or add Privacy Badger to your browser.

Want to Get a Copy of All the Stuff Google Has About You?
For everyone with a Google account

There's more to Google than Chrome and Gmail. Google runs a lot of other services like YouTube, Google Drive, Hangouts and others that are all collecting information about you. Google does allow you to have some control over that information, and they also allow you to download and saved a copy of everything they have about you.

If you want to download a copy of all the data stored on Google's servers about you, it's really quite easy to do. Not only is this a good learning lesson to see how much data is collected about you, you could actually use is as a backup. For example, if you have a lot of important email messages stored on Gmail, if you download all the data Google has about, you'll also have a backup copy of your Gmail messages on your PC.

All this data about you is being served up for takeout. That's right, just like your favorite Chinese restaurant, Google can package up your data for takeout.

Head over to https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout . If you're not already logged into your Gmail account, you'll need to log in. Once you're there and logged in, all you have to do is choose what data you want to download to your PC.

How to Save Text files, Word Documents, Pictures, and Web Pages as PDF Files
Windows 10 (all versions)

How would you like to be able to convert many different types of files, like images, Word documents, text files, even Web pages, into PDF files without downloading and installing a program, or using a web service? If you're using Windows 10 (any version), you have the power ... right at your finger tips.

Pick an image, any image on your PC, open it with whatever program you like (or whatever your default is). Once it's open, press CTRL+P and choose "Microsoft Print to PDF" as the selected printer and then click Print.

(Above: Print dialog in our default image viewer, IrfanView. Your image program will have a similar print dialog.)

How to See a List of Files You've Recently Accessed
Windows 7, Windows 8x and Windows 10

Every time you access a file or folder in Windows, it's added to a list. But do you know how to access this list? It's easy. Very easy.

Open a Run dialog by holding down the Windows Key and tapping the "R" key. Type RECENT in the Run dialog and press Enter or click "OK".

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows Tips & Tricks

And you'll see a long list of files you've accessed recently. Mine go all the way back to 3 weeks ago, which was the time I cleaned my computer using the CLEANMGR command which you an also run from a Run dialog.

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows Tips & Tricks

Windows 10 users will notice also that a list of recently accessed files and folders appears in File Explorer "Quick Access".

If you want to clear this list of recently access files and folders, do this:

Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog.

Type Control Folders in the run box to open Folder Options and click OK or press Enter. (Note: You can also use Control Panel / Folder Options or File Explorer / Options.) Under the General tab, under "Privacy", next to "Clear File Explorer history" click "Clear".

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows Tips & Tricks

OK! Now you know how to see what files and folders you have recently accessed on your computer... and how to clear the list. I always love to do this with EB's computer. You should see the stuff she looks at; I'm appalled!

Please note: Windows 7 users will see different dialogs, but the functionality is essentially the same.

What’s Your Up Time?
Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10

How long has it been since you started - or restarted - your PC? Do you know?

We leave our computers running 24/7. If you asked us how long it’s been since we last restarted our PCs, we couldn’t tell you without looking at our up time. If you’re like us, you probably don’t know how long it’s been since you rebooted either.

So, how long has your computer been running since you rebooted or started your computer? If you want to know how long it has been since the last time you started or restarted your PC (your PC’s “up time” ), there are several ways you can find out. We’re going to show you two of them. The first way not only shows you how long it’s been since you last started or restarted your computer, but also shows when your current version of Windows was installed. If you’re using Windows 10, you’ll see the date of the last major (version) update.

OK. Let's get started. First, open a Command Prompt.

On Windows 7, type CMD in the start menu search, click on CMD when it appears at the top of the search results. On Windows 8.x, press Windows Key+S and type CMD into the search box and click on Command Prompt when it appears in the search results. If you are using Windows 10, type CMD in the taskbar search and press Enter when Command Prompt appears at the top.

When Command Prompt opens, at the prompt, type:

systeminfo

And press Enter. System info will load the information (it may take a few seconds) then you'll see a list of information about your PC.

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows tips & tricks

You’ll see the last time you booted or rebooted your computer. As you can see mine has not been restarted since 5/4/2018 (20 days ago). Also note that above it, you’ll see “Original Install Date”. I’m using Windows 10 and 10/22/2017 was the date I installed the Fall Creators Update (Version 1709). It was not the date that Windows was originally installed on this PC.

Cloudeight InfoAve Windows tips & tricks

Above: My Windows 10 Version 1803 computer was restarted today - so it's only been running a few hours.

If you’re using Windows 10, another way to see how long your computer has been running since the last reboot is to use good old Task Manager. No matter what version of Windows you’re using, you can open Task Manager by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+ESC. Once Task Manager is open, click on the “Performance” tab, click “CPU” and look near the bottom under "Up time".

Cloudeight Windows tips & tricks

You'll see how many days, hours, minutes and second your computer has been "up" since you last started or restarted it. You can see (above) that my laptop has been running for 19 days, 17 hours, 59 minutes and 7 seconds since the last time I restarted it. See? We really practice what we preach  - we do leave our computers running almost all the time.

So … what’s your up time?

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium -Tips & Tricks

Unsplash

We are sure that one of the things you folks like the best is anything to do with pictures and graphics. Making pictures, taking pictures, editing pictures, making graphics, etc. just seem to be things almost everyone loves... even if it's just looking at beautiful pictures.

Cloudeight Site Pick

This Cloudeight site of the week pick is a real beauty in more ways than one. It's called Unsplash.com. Unsplash is a collective work of photographers who have gifted hundreds of thousands of photos, many of them strikingly beautiful, some of them thought-provoking, and all of them free for you to download and use as you see fit -- even for commercials purpose.

There are many things wrong with the Web, but Unsplash shows that the Web can be a beautiful place - a place for beauty, sharing and collaboration.

Because we're sure that you're anxious to get on with show and take a trip to Unsplash to browse through the photos there, we're going to bring in the developers of Unsplash to tell you a little bit more about their site:

"Unsplash manifesto

Unsplash was created in 2013 as a simple tool for creators. The concept was born from the pain we had as creators in finding great, usable imagery.

The internet was meant to connect, inform, and inspire us in unprecedented ways. Yet, when it came to usable images, that connection was shut down. While the need for images was increasing dramatically, the systems supporting the supply of usable images were incompatible.

Unsplash was formed as the antithesis to the stock image experiences available at the time. Instead of vast libraries, licensed and presented for commercial buyers, Unsplash focused on giving original, high-resolution images for anyone and free to use for anything.

We started Unsplash by giving away 10 images we had leftover from a photoshoot. Today, Unsplash has become a platform fueled by creators who have generously gifted hundreds of thousands of their own photos. We’ve seen Unsplash images inspire millions of creations, from helping a 10-year-old learn graphic design, to powering the imagery behind stories blanketing the internet. Unsplash is a community that celebrates creativity.

Our aim is to celebrate the gifts Unsplash contributors make by pushing the impact of their photography as far as we can. Our world is becoming increasingly visual. Images connect on an emotional level. They are not only how we self-express but also how we understand all kinds of information. The creative spirit is one of exploration. If creativity is a form of exploration, then an image is the perfect start.

From the beginning, Unsplash has held a particular view on the future of creativity, and our vision remains unchanged. We believe everyone is creative and that we have a responsibility to empower everyone to create. Creativity is a fundamental human need that is essential not only for progress but for feeling connected to the world and oneself. Our world is evolving rapidly. Manual to automated. Physical to digital. Earth to Mars. While we don’t know exactly where everything is headed, what we do know is creativity will be how we get there.

Our 3 values:

-- Share. Remix, rework, recreate. This only works if we all take part. So share, take, manipulate, and reshare.

-- Show Love. While the Unsplash License allows you to share without the limitations of copyright, this doesn’t mean we should ignore the work of our contributors if we can help it. It is not necessary but when possible, support artists willing to offer their work by giving credit.

-- Create. Art only exists because of other art. What you build becomes the next material that inspires the next artist. Without creation we have nothing so go make something. ...

Unsplash license

All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.

More precisely, Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service...."

Cloudeight Site Pick "Unsplash"

So... all you have to do now is visit Unsplash.com and plan on spending some time. You'll be amazed what you find there. For as the developers say... "Without creation we have nothing so go make something."

Ketchup: The Poor Man's Sauce

They say that ketchup is the poor man’s sauce, whoever they are. They say a lot of things. They say what’s good for the goose is good for the gander too, but how many of you walk around calling male geese ganders? Not many, but THEY do. But I don’t want to talk about geese, ganders or what THEY say; I want to talk about ketchup.

My grandfather taught me a lot of things, most of the things he taught me have stuck with me my whole life — like my love of ketchup. I can remember going on vacation with my grandparents and watching grandpa smother fried eggs and hash brown potatoes in ketchup in restaurants from Michigan to Mississippi, from the Alleghenies of Pennsylvania to the agonies of driving through The Great Smoky Mountains in dense fog. At every meal we stopped to eat a long the way, no matter what food was served, you could bet it included ketchup.

So I come by my love of ketchup honestly. I was born and raised on the poor man’s sauce. But as I grew up, something changed, and it wasn’t my love of ketchup, it was the ketchup I loved. It seems to increase profits by using cheaper ingredients, the Holy Grail of ketchup – Heinz –  decided it could mess around with my beloved sauce and start making it from concentrated tomatoes instead of fresh, red, ripe tomatoes. And to add insult to injury, they squirted it full of HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) instead of sugar. It’s so bad that Heinz ketchup doesn’t even qualify as “ketchup” anymore in Israel… it’s now “tomato seasoning”… I am not kidding:

"Israel’s Health Ministry recently ruled that Heinz tomato ketchup does not contain enough “tomato solids” to qualify as ketchup, and it will now have to be referred to as “tomato seasoning,” the Times of Israel reports...."

I’m not going to get into the many hazards of HFCS...

We get a lot of emails informing us of an email address change. Here a few tips to remember when changing email:

1. Don't use the old one to email anyone that you are changing address. Use the new one.

2. If you have a PayPal account, be sure you log in to PayPal and add the new address, and remove the old.

3. Most newsletters have a way to change your address and can usually be found at the bottom of the newsletter.

4. If getting our daily news, which is sent via google, you will need to unsub, then rejoin with new address.
