Cheryl got a new Dell gaming computer and needs some advice
I splurged and purchased a new gaming computer from Dell. I have a couple of questions, please. This new computer will be used exclusively for Gaming. The new gaming computer was ordered with no antivirus and no MS Office. However, it did come with an MS Office "Trial" version, which did not give me the option to decline. Here are my questions:

(1) Is there a way to remove the "Trial" version of MS Office?

(1a) Would I need to install the Free Revo Uninstaller program to remove it?

or

(2) Should I do a Windows Cloud Download Recovery Option you have in Newsletter #943?

(3) Is there a specific link I should use to download Chrome?

Thanks ever so much for your help. Take care and stay safe. Cheryl.

Our answer
Hi Cheryl. If you're using Windows 10, you can remove the trial version of Office by going to Settings > Apps > Apps & features and finding MS Office in the list. Click on MS Office and click Uninstall. If using Windows 11, go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features, and find Microsoft Office (or Office apps) in the list and click on the 3 vertical dots to the right and choose "Uninstall".

There is no reason to use an uninstaller (Revo or otherwise) to remove the trial version of office.

There would be no reason to use the Cloud Download recovery option on a brand new computer. Just remove the MS Office trial version and you should be all set.

You can download Chrome at https://www.google.com/chrome/.

If you have any more questions, just let us know.

Dotty has problems with Windows updates
Hello, It's me again. Hi Darcy and TC. My computer has been acting strangely for the last week. I have run all help programs, Reg Org., Emsisoft, restarted my router, unplugged everything, and nothing has helped.

The other day I had an update available so I clicked on it. It took over 4 hours to download up to 23%. I got tired of waiting and stopped it. I came back today and have two available updates. I have started one and it has been running a long time and it's only at 26%.  When I click on a link it will go to the link but sets there sometimes for 2 to 3 minutes before it opens. Pictures are the same. On the update, I downloaded and installed it on my laptop in less than 8 minutes. I am also getting great lags in my mouse working. It's a new mouse. I have never had this problem before and don't know what to do. Can you please help? I am running Windows 10 Version 21H1.

Our answer
Hi Dotty. It may be an internet connection problem. So the first thing you should do is call your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and have them check your connection. Have them check your modem/router as well.

Your mouse may be going bad, in need of new batteries, or you may need to switch USB ports. It's hard for us to guess on that one.

As far as your Windows Update problems go...

It could be a lot of things but if you have problems with internet connectivity that would explain the update issue. I doubt there's anything wrong with your computer.

Problems with Windows Updates are one of the most common problems we see, but, fortunately, most Windows update problems usually resolve on their own.

Here are some things you can try if your problem is Windows update itself.

Right-click the Start button...

Click Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Additional troubleshooters.

Next, under "Get up and running", select Windows Update "Solve problems that prevent you from updating Windows. And click "Run the troubleshooter".

After you've done that open Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates, and then install any available updates.

If you still have problems with the updates, visit this Microsoft page and follow the instructions on that page.

We hope this helps you, Dotty

Carol wants to remove the "Mail" app from her taskbar
TC, my knight in shining armor. I have a Mail app icon in the taskbar. It isn't needed. Can it be removed? Thank you for all you and Darcy do for all of us. Thank you very much. Carol.

Our answer
Hi Carol. Thanks for your kind words!

If you don't use the Windows Mail app, just right-click on its icon and choose "Unpin from taskbar". The Mail app icon will be banished from your taskbar. That's it!

Michael had a problem getting our newsletters on Outlook.com
Michael had a problem getting our newsletters on Outlook.com. Then he figured out the problem himself!

Michael's answer
Hello TC. I finally figured out how to fix my email problem within Outlook. Most of us are not familiar with Outlook settings where the blocked email problems lie.

After logging in to Outlook and clicked the (settings) gear icon. Once outlook.live.com opened, I then clicked on the Junk Mail folder, right of the Mail Folder. I spent some time looking thru each of the three settings; Blocked Senders and Domains, Safe Senders and Domains, Safe Mailing Lists. I did see that Feedblitz.com was listed under Blocked Senders and Domains. I deleted it by highlighting it and pressing enter, then I re-entered it into the Safe Senders and Domains by clicking on the “Add” word and entering feedblitz.com, then I scrolled to the bottom of the page and clicked “Save” on the bottom right.

I logged out of Outlook, opened my browser and typed in, Thundercloud.net. You know the rest. After subscribing to Infoave Daily Newsletter, I was once again receiving it later Sunday night.

TC, I’m wondering if some of those folks who have told you that they were no longer receiving your newsletter had the same issue I did? After registering a number of times and not getting a reply from your server I knew I was being blocked, but not by my ISP because I was still getting the weekly Infoave newsletter. I just had to dig into Outlook and learn where it was being blocked, and I found it!

I hope this helps explain where newsletters and such get blocked and how to fix it within Outlook.

All my best to you and Darcy. Michael.

Linda wants to install the old Microsoft Movie Maker on her Windows 10 computer
I was wondering if you could download the original old "movie maker" on my computer for me. I made several movies on the old original movie maker that seemed to be easier than the newer versions. Please let me know if you can do this?

Our answer
Hi Linda. It's easy to install the old Movie Maker on Windows 10. To make it even easier we've created a tutorial as well. You can install Movie Maker on any Windows 10 computer by following the instructions on this page.

That article shows how to install Movie Maker and Photo Gallery. If you don't want Photo Gallery, just uncheck it when selecting the programs you want to install.

If you need anything else, please let us know.

Jean wants to know about OneDrive
OneDrive is on my computer but I really do not know how to use it. I know it is cloud storage. I have a few documents in it but just a few. Does that mean I have reached my 5 GB limit? I have never signed into it. Some files appear there but I have never put anything into it. I think you have written about it in your newsletter in the past. Could you point me to that, please? I need to become acquainted with OneDrive.

Our answer
Hi Jean. One Drive automatically (by default) backs up your personal folders (Documents, Pictures, etc.). OneDrive comes with all Windows 10 and Windows 11 computers and you get 5 GB of space free. The files that are in One Drive appear under One Drive in File Explorer. For example, you can see my OneDrive folders in the screenshot below.

Cloudeight InfoAve

I have a subscription to Microsoft 365 ($6.99/month) and with that, I get one terabyte of OneDrive space, so have a lot more than I'll ever use, so I will never run out of space. If you don't have Microsoft 365 and/or you have not purchased more OneDrive space, you have 5 GB of space free.

As far as using it, it's automatic. OneDrive starts with Windows and if you're signed into Windows with a Microsoft account, you're also signed in to OneDrive. It will automatically back up your personal files - at least until you run out of space. You can access files in OneDrive as if there were on your PC - just open the folder under OneDrive and click on the file(s) you want to open.

There are many other options - for example storing files in both locations, closing OneDrive, and moving all files back to your PC. If you have specific questions about OneDrive, we'll try to answer them for you.

To sum it up for you. OneDrive starts with Windows and automatically backs up your personal files (Pictures, Documents, Music, etc.) "in the cloud", but you can access those files as if they were on your computer.

Don wants to set Gmail as his default email program in Windows 10
II need to know how to create an association in Control Panel. I have this on more than one site but I most often am trying to send something from Libre Office. This is the message I get. There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.  I use Gmail only. I don't find that in Default programs. I did click on Mail in default programs but nothing happened. I have been working around this by sending the document to another program but that gets complicated. I thought someone else would ask this and I would see your answer but I guess I am the only one with this problem.

Our answer
Hi Don. Setting Gmail as default in Windows is not something we get a lot of requests for. But it can be done and here's how to do it.

Type default apps in taskbar search. Under Email make sure "Chrome" is selected - even though Chrome is not an email program.

Now open Chrome and click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner.

Click on Settings.

When Chrome Settings opens, click on Privacy and security.

Click on Site Settings, then click on the right arrow >

Scroll down to Additional permissions and expand that section by clicking the down arrow.

Next to " Protocol handlers", click on the right arrow >

At the top make sure the circle next "Sites can ask to handle protocols" is selected.

Cloudeight InfoAve

Open Chrome and go to www.gmail.com. In the address bar next to the star you'll see an icon that looks like 2 overlapping diamonds. Click that icon. Under "Allow mail.google.com to open all email links?" tick "Allow", then click "Done".

Cloudeight InfoAve

That's it. From now on your email links should open in Gmail.

We hope this helps you, Don.

Cloudeight InfoAve Premium -Tips & Tricks

From Windows 10 to Windows 11
Windows 10 and Windows 11

We’ve been testing Windows 11 for about a month now, and what we’ve noticed most are the similarities between Windows 10 and Windows 11.  There are more similarities between them than there are differences. Moving from Windows 10 to Windows 11 is much easier than moving from Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10 was.

Windows 11 seems like what Windows 10 should have been. It’s more logical, more intuitive, and cleaner looking. In short, if you can use Windows 10, you’ll have no trouble with Windows 11. But if you can’t upgrade or don’t want to upgrade, you won’t be missing out on many striking new features – at least not so far.

That’s not to say Windows 11 is perfect – it is not. Some parts of it seem unfinished. Here’s an example. Microsoft has made no secret of the fact that they’re going to deprecate the Control Panel and move everything to the Settings app. And most Windows users were aware of that. But in Windows 11, Microsoft, oddly, moved File History from Settings > Update & Security to the Control Panel > System and Security. Take a look.

File History – Windows 10

File History - Windows 10 - Cloudeight

File History Windows 11 – In the Control Panel

Windows 11 File History - Cloudeight

We can only guess that File History will be moved to the Settings app in a future version, but for now, it’s in the Control Panel.

If you notice in the screenshots above that I’m not using File History, it’s not that I don’t like it or don’t trust it. I really like File History. The only reason I’m not using it is that I have OneDrive with one terabyte of backup space that I get free with Microsoft 365. So, I do have everything backed up; I hope you do too!

The Good Stuff

The Settings app in Windows 10 is a sprawling affair best utilized in full-screen mode. Moving from category to category required you to click a “Home” button at the top to go back to the Settings app Home page to select a new category.

The Windows 10 Settings app

The Settings App - Windows 10 style. Cloudeight

The Windows 11 Settings app

The Windows 11 Settings app has a menu icon at the top-left that launches a drop-down menu listing all Settings categories. No more going back to the “home” page and hunting around for a setting.

Windows 10’s Ease of Access

Windows 10 Ease of Access can be opened quickly using the Windows Key + U shortcut. Ease of Access allows users to change accessibility settings. The format is not clear, so many accessibility settings go unused by the Windows users who need these settings most.

Windows 10 Ease of Access - Cloudeight

Windows 11 Accessibility (Ease of Access)

Ease of Access is called Accessibility in Windows 11. And you can still access the Accessibility settings home page by using the Windows key+ U shortcut, just like Windows 10.

Windows 11 simplifies Windows 10′s Ease of Access settings by showing all categories on the Accessibility settings home page.  So, it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.

For example. If the text on your screen is too small, click on Text size.  Then use the slider to make the screen text as big as you need it to be.

Windows 11 Accessibilty - Text size - Cloudeight

The Windows 10 Start Menu

The Windows 10 Start Menu is a vast improvement over the sprawling full-screen tiles of Windows 8. Windows 10’s Start menu features a hybrid list of apps, programs, and tiles. Few Windows 10 users use the Start menu tiles so mostly they just add clutter.

Windows 10 Start Menu - Cloudeight

And while you can pin tiles of your favorite programs to the Windows 10 Start menu quite easily, to me at least, they look messy. Most people use the alphabetized Start menu on the left, and/or taskbar or desktop shortcuts to launch their favorite programs.

The Windows 11 Start menu

The Windows 11 Start menu, to me, just makes sense. In the screenshot below, you’ll see that I have eighteen of the programs and apps I use most – and sorted by type – in the ‘main’ Start menu.

You can see I have my browsers, image programs, and text programs grouped together. And you can drag the icons around to put them in any order you want. Plus “taskbar” search is right there at the top of the menu – so we’ll be calling it the Start menu search in the future.

Note the icon at the bottom left in the screenshot below. Click that icon to shut down, restart, or log out of your computer.

The Windows 11 Start menu - Cloudeight

And if you want to see all your programs and apps in alphabetical order, you can do that too. Click “All apps” at the top-right of the Start menu (see above) and you’ll get a list of all your apps in alphabetical order. See?

Windows 11 alphabetical start menu - Cloudeight

And if you want to go back to the main Start menu again, just click “Back”.

The new Windows 11 icons

Windows 11 just seems logical and more well thought out than Windows 10. Even the icons look more like what they represent, don’t you think?

Windows 11 Icons - Cloudeight

Windows 11 is more like Windows 10 than you might think

There’s more to like about Windows 11 than to dislike, and more similarities to Windows 10 than differences.

If you’re planning on buying a new computer soon, and you buy one with Windows 11, have no fear. If you can use Windows 10 – you can use Windows 11.

We’ll slowly be updating all our Windows 10 tips for Windows 10 as time goes by as well as including some just-for-Windows-11 tips as more of you start using Windows 11.

And if you like Windows 10…no problem!

We’ll continue to use Windows 10 on some of our computers and Windows 11 on others.

If you like Windows 10 or if your computer won’t support Windows 11, you’ll be fine using Windows 10. And you have plenty of time left to use it too!  Windows 10 will continue to be updated and supported until October 14, 2025. That’s nearly four years from now. We’ll continue to write tips for and answer questions about Windows 10 until Windows 10 is no longer supported… that’s a long time from now.

Save Time: Use These CTRL Key Shortcuts 
Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows 11

Today, we’re going to remind you about one of the most basic time-saving things you can use in your daily computing life. Shortcuts.

In today’s post, we’re going to remind you how handy Ctrl Key shortcuts can be — and why you should use them whenever you can. They will save you time. And what’s more basic than time? We either have too much of it or not enough it… and, not to be morbid, but we’re all going to run out of it. So, why not save as much time as you can?

And remember, these shortcuts can be used in any version of Windows including Windows 11.

OK ready? Let’s save some time with Ctrl Key shortcuts!

Let’s say you’re reading a page on the Web and you’re looking for a particular word. Do you:

a.) Scan the page manually for the word?

b.) Use the browser’s search feature in the browser toolbar?

c.) Press Ctrl + F to open the page search dialog?

d.) None of the above.

The answer is C. If you’re looking for a word on a page in your web browser, word processer, text editor, PDF viewer (and many other programs) just press Ctrl + F to open the “Find” dialog. Type in the word(s) you’re looking for and press Enter. That’s it! Just remember F stands for Find. Sure, you can use the program’s search feature too, but why? The CTRL + F shortcut is faster and easier.

OK. If you’re on a page you want to print, do you search for “print” on the toolbar, or look for the printer icon, or just press Ctrl + P? Right! You press Ctrl + P to print the page. It’s the fastest way to print.

OK now… you’re using your browser and you want to open a new window? Do you just click the browser’s shortcut to open a new browser window? Nah, just press Ctrl + N. Same thing if you’re using an email program and you want to open a new email compose window. Ctrl + N and type your email.

If you’re working on a document and you want to save it, you can press CTRL+S instead of clicking ‘File’ ‘Save’. If you want “File” > “Save as” you’ll find that Ctrl + S/ works in many applications.

If you want to view your browser’s history, with your browser open use the Ctrl key shortcut, Ctrl + H.

And if you want to view a list of things you’ve recently downloaded, with your browser open use the Ctrl + J.

Let’s review:

Ctrl + F = Find something on a page – in a browser, text editor, PDF editor, eBook, etc. To remember this easily, think F = FIND.

Ctrl + P = Print the document you have open. Whether it’s a web page, a Word doc, PDF file, text file, etc. Think P = PRINT.

Ctrl + N = Opens a new window in the program that’s running. Think N = NEW.

Ctrl + S = Saves the document you’re working on. Think S = SAVE.

Ctrl + H = Shows your browser’s history. Think H = History

Ctrl + J = Shows a list of downloads in your browser. Think J= ? I give up! J=Downloads! Junk?

And let us not fail to mention these Ctrl Key shortcuts:

Ctrl + A = Select All

Ctrl + C = Copy

Ctrl + V = Paste

Ctrl + X = Cut

Ctrl + Y = Redo (Reverses a previous undo.)

Ctrl + Z = Restores a deleted file instantly when used immediately after deleting a file. It also restores accidentally changed or deleted text in a document.

Windows Accessories: What’s in it for you?
Windows 10 (all versions) & Windows 11 (Windows tools)

The Accessories menu has been on every version of Windows since Windows XP. But back in the days of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and even in Windows 7, Accessories was listed under “A” for “Accessories”. Makes sense.

But in Windows 10, it’s listed under Windows Accessories and therefore it’s listed under the “W” section near the bottom of the Start menu. And Windows 11 calls it "Windows tools"

It used to be near the top of the Start menu and easy to find, but now in Windows 10, it’s called “Windows Accessories” so it’s near the bottom of the Start menu.  

Windows Accessories in Windows 10

But just because Windows Accessories is buried near the bottom of the Start menu doesn’t mean it’s not useful. On the contrary, Windows Accessories contains a lot of useful Windows apps including Notepad, WordPad, Character Map, Paint, and many more.

Let’s have a look…

Cloudeight Internet

Hidden in the Windows Accessories menu is a bunch of useful stuff. Sorry for that extremely technical language!

When you click on Windows Accessories (above) you’ll see a menu open.

Cloudeight Internet

As you can see there are a lot of useful Windows apps hiding in the Window Accessories menu – things like Character Map which helps you make stuff like – characters not normally available on your keyboard – well at least not on my keyboard. You’ll also find WordPad, Notepad, Sticky Notes, Snipping Tool, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Quick Assist, and more.

And if anything in the Accessories menu is something you use often, you can make a shortcut on the Start menu or Taskbar. All you have to do is right-click the item you want to put on your Start menu or Taskbar and choose “Pin to Start” or click “More” and then “Pin to taskbar” (see below):

Cloudeight Internet

And now you know what’s in the Windows Accessories menu.

Windows Tools in Windows 11

In Windows 11, Windows Accessories is called Windows Tools. And the strange thing is that when you open Windows Tools in the Windows 11 Start menu, you'll find it opens in the Control Panel \ All Control Panel Items \ Windows Tools applet.

Cloudeight Internet

Like Windows Accessories in Windows 10, you can right-click any of the items in Windows Tools and pin them to the taskbar or Start menu.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Walking Through Autumn

In my tiny part of the world, autumn has settled in.

On some days this autumn, like this one, walking outside feels like walking in summer. No jacket, no hat, the sun warm on my face. And if not for the strange slant of the sunlight, I could easily believe that it is still summer.

But a glance at the clock when darkness descends over my little town tells me the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer – and we’re headed inexorably into the howling winds and icy roads and snowy days of Winter.

The shorter days are a subtle reminder that the bitter, biting, and unrelenting winds of winter will soon whip the snow in whitescapes swirling and drifting down my lonely street and painting the world a wondrous white.

Soon, I’ll watch snowflakes flurry, meet in dizzy dances

We hope you'll read the rest of this essay here.

Economize - Just Minimize

Instead of moving a window to the side or resizing it to see a window behind it, just click minimize on the window that covers the window you want to see. The minimize icon can be found in the upper right hand corner or the window - it looks like a minus sign.

We notice that a lot of folks drag the window over to the side to see our chat box during Direct Care sessions; it's easier to just minimize the window on top. Another way, even easier, is to just click the icon in the taskbar of the item you want to be on top of other window.

You don't need to drag windows all over the desktop just to see a window that's buried underneath other windows. Take it from EB, she's a big drag, but even she uses the taskbar icons and minimize icon to see windows underneath

Do things the easy way whenever you can.
