Upgrade my PC to the point itís about useless now making it impossible to download game cam pics. Found my way around the last one that made it harder to work with the pics now it wonít do squat. It seems they flood the PCs with upgrades they overload it making the need for a new one like planned obsolescence.

I remember when a PC came with free software most you did not need or want now thereís a app for that for a price making big tech rich.

Yup they were simple back then. I remember putting in the windows disc and typing c:win to start it
I love my chromebooks. It's a little hard to figure out their version of office software but no updates fast

I remember when PCs came with no software other than the operating system (DOS) and you had to load everything else yourself. That sucked but at least you didn't get a bunch of stuff you didn't want or need to clutter your hard drive. What really ticked me off was when my new PC wouldn't run my perfectly good Canon 10+ y/o lazer printer because the software wasn't supported anymore. Been through 3 or 4 ink jet printers since.

I'm only using my Phone now

They sent me a message on my laptop saying I'll need to upgrade from windows 7 to 10

No thanks. Laptop is done for me now.

Buy a $25 SD card reader for your phone.

It's a lose-lose.
Don't update, then eventually get "unsupported" messages and it no longer works.
Update, then it constantly crashes.

Mac...... nuff said. I have had this pro book for 5 years now. It had a dodgy batterie so stye replaced it free of charge a year ago. Now and then a new OS comes out but its free. It came standard with an office suite, photo editing and a bunch of other stuff that MS wants a lot of money for .... it boots up in about 10 seconds and even when the OS changes to a new version, the operation for the user does not change. Granted they are a bit more expensive to buy to start with but work out way cheaper in the long run. I know so of you may now say but apple is one of the big tech elites yada yada yada, but so is MS and there is just no way around it presently and you will have to pay one of them if you want a usable computer to work with.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

Hey Jerry...

If Bill Gates doesn't take advantage of folks like us... how is he going to feed Africa?

This Microsoft Edge didn't bother me at first but now when I download pictures from my phone they go straight to OneDrive instead of my hard drive and now they want me to pay for storage just like photobucket did.

I'm still running Win 7 with no problems. The first thing I do to any computer is delete all the games and crap I'll never use and then turn off automatic updates.

Currently have 1 Windows XP, 1 Win 10, 2 Win 2000, 2 win 7. Use them all throughout any week. The only things permanently retired are my Win 95 & Win NT machines

Yup turn the updates off. Then when updates are available, you can decide whether to install them or not.

How are you trying to get your game cam pics onto your PC?

I canít get them to my photo gallery on my PC the ďsave asĒ is hard to find it popped up as a easy option before if I hit that now it a black box when I try to add to my photo file that Iíve had for ever. Would a restore to a earlier date eliminate the issue?

Makes me like my Linux even more but like everything it has it's bad as well as good.


ÔŅĹStill, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. ÔŅĹ ÔŅĹ Winston Churchill

Restore, doubt it. Try this:

1. Download Irfranview FREE. It supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10; 32 and 64 bit. Been using this for years.

2. Take your sd card and insert it into the reader with a USB. Inset into your USB port on computer.

3. Go to your files and look for your "X" drive e.g. (D:), (E:) or whatever. That drive will show your sd card flash drive.

4. Open Irfranview "thumbnails" and "open" it. It will show your photos / videos etc.

5. Choose the little "panda" and in the menu, select view. Choose what size to view.

6. It's easier than it sounds.

PS. . . you can save each pic also. in a folder you name in Irfranview too.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Hope this helps :-)
