Thank you for looking at my question,

The IT department have installed Webmin on a MySQL server. I have written a bit of php code and saved it to the correct place on the server.

The code is a simple table and begins like this:
<?php # Script 1.0 - Section1.php
      require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/CESTrack/Includes/configinc.php';
      //require_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/CESTrack/Includes/mysql_connect.php';
      $Page_Title = "KLTD E-D1";
      include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/CESTrack/Includes/CESTrack_Header.html');
      echo '<h2>CES Tracker</h2>';
      echo '<table width="100%">';
            echo '<tr>';
                  echo '<td align="center">';
                        echo '<table width="80%" border="2">';
                              echo '<tr>';
                                    echo '<td colspan="16">';
                                          echo '<h2>HONKER LTD CES DASHBOARD</h2>';
                                    echo '</td>';
                              echo '</tr>';
                              echo '<tr>';
                                    echo '<td width="13%" align="left">';
                                    echo '</td>';
                                    echo '<td width="13%" align="center" colspan="3">';
                                    echo '</td>';
                                    echo '<td width="13%" align="center" colspan="3">';
                                          echo'<h2>SENQ Enq/Quotations</h2>';
                                    echo '</td>';
                                    echo '<td width="13%" align="center" colspan="3">';
                                          echo'<h2>SENQ Orders</h2>';

Hi, I have just noticed that when I try to make Firefox smaller by clicking on the center (square) type icon on the upper right, it just kind of re positions the full screen but does not make it smaller.  I tried it on Chrome and it worked just fine as well as Excel and Word.  I want to have an excel document take up the left half of the screen while I look stuff up in Firefox on the right side of the screen.  I've never run into this before and would appreciate your help.
I've got issue of Adobe flash player in Chrome and how to set it up properly?
Hello all,
In Google Chrome, I am getting an error that states This site can't be reached.
If I try the same site in Internet Explorer it works great.
This is a WIndows 10 Pro computer hooked up to AD, where the DNS is from the main AD server.  No other computers are having this issue.
I did the following:
Restarted the DNS client
Reset TCP/IP
Ran Network Troubleshooter
Reset Google Chrome settings
Reinstalled Chrome
After each thing I tried, I rebooted the computer and tested and get the same error.
There is NO proxy being used.
I have no idea what to do next to fix this error
Thanks in advance for your help,
Kelly W
We have a vendor installed site on a local server in IIS.  They said the site only works in Chrome.  The site allows tickets to be printed by clicking a button called "PDF" which then generates and downloads a PDF.  For some tickets it works and others get "Failed - Network error".  It's not random, the same ticket either works every time or doesn't.  We can download those same tickets that don't work in Chrome, in Edge and Firefox without issue.  But Edge and Firefox have other view issues so we can't just switch to them.  Everything else within this site works fine in Chrome.  We've already tested disabling AV, UTM services, etc.  Those had no affect.  I'm thinking this issue lies in IIS or the code of the site.
Can you add charts using  Microsoft PowerPoint Online?
For instance, let us say that you use Google Chrome to login to or and you open the Online version of PowerPoint, can you use a Google Chrome extension to add a chart to a PowerPoint file?
Does a Google Chrome extension exist that will allow you to add charts to PowerPoint Online?

We host several internal sites (intranet, and utility).  Oftentimes, when we access them, we get that pesky UNTRUSTED or UNSECURE warning from Chrome.  

I've set up an internal certificate server to try to authorize them, but because many of them (my intranet sites / helpdesk sites) use OpenSSL, it's not playing nice with my windows AD Certificate Services.  

Do any of you have a good procedure for how to register sites using OpenSSL to a MIcrosoft On-Prem Certificate server / CA?  

Thank you!

But I can't replicate that in Chrome. It looks fine in Chrome. How can I test and fix this issue? Thanks.
Is there an extension for Chrome that will perform the same thing as the default home page?
Problem: When  opening Chrome, it prompts for which e-mail address to use.
Note: Outlook is configured with two different Microsoft Exchange Online accounts.
Goal: I need to have Chrome only select one e-mail address, and not present the different e-mail address menu.
Printing an article from the web in Chrome, the last line of text on a page may get cut-off horizontally and the rest of the line shows up on the next page.

- Using a different printer from the same workstation makes no difference (same problem).
- Using Chrome on a different workstation: works fine (problem is gone).
- Using Firefox on the original workstation: works fine (problem is gone).

So if it was a system or printer driver setting, wouldn't Firefox exhibit the same issue?
But if it is a Chrome setting, which one? I couldn't find any difference between the two workstations.
Could anyone help?

I'm trying to fix an annoying CSS bug on a WordPress site that I'm developing and am hoping that someone here can help me.  If you view this page in either Firefox, Edge, or IE11 and scroll down to the bottom -- you'll notice that the 2 social icons are being displayed to the right of the 3 links (ie: Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, Sitemap).

This appears to be being achieved using this CSS rule:

.widget-pages ul {
    list-style: none;
    columns: 2;

Open in new window

... where "columns: 2" is suppoedly splitting the 5 different list items into 2 separate columns.  

However, .. if you view the same page using either Chrome or Opera, ..the Instragram social icon is for some reason being displayed at the bottom of the first column instead of at the top of the 2nd column.   My assumption was that the CSS would try to evenly split the 5 different list items into the 2 different columns - with the first 3 list items being displayed in the 1st column, and the remaining 2 in the 2nd column.  But obviously this isn't the case.

How can I fix this?  Is there any way that I can tweak this CSS rule somehow so that it forces the last 2 list items to be displayed in the 2nd column (in Chrome and Opera)? If so, how?

Is there a process to properly copy a cookie out of my computer so it can be used on a different computer?
Hello the experts,

This is my first post here, please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

Explaning my problem is simple : I use shortcuts a lot, for various reasons, in various places. Each time my PC is changed or reinstalled (which happens quite often with our IT department, if the problem is not easily solved, let's just reinstall the machine !) it's a mess. Some shortcuts are lost. Some shortcuts don't work. Some shortcuts just vanish, pouf, empty file. Question : what could I do to avoid that as much as possible ?

I know the problem is much more complex than the question and it depends what shortcuts we're talking about, what I'm trying to do with them, and so on. But I don't need help on a very specific issue I need to solve. I would like to get global advise, internet references to "shortcut best practices", tricks & cheats, you see the idea.

Then I will study and apply all that next time they reinstall my PC (again...). Then I will probably come back and bother you with my unsolved issues. ;)

A few things that I should probably tell you :
- My machine is an pretty old mobile PC, dell intel core i5 blabla
- My files are ALL either on Onedrive perso, either on Sharepoint
- We use Chrome and are pretty much stuck with it
- My main habit with "local" (but on Onedrive) folders is right click on the file/folder I need on duplicate spots, create shortcut, move the shortcut whenever I need it
- My main habit with internet shortcuts is bring it from…
I am building a website.  I noticed that when entering text in the contact form from mobile phones there is this odd delay, anywhere from 1-10 seconds before the letters or words I typed appears.  On my computer and laptop it is fine, no lag.  On my iphones 10 and 7, I tried safari, chrome, and edge...they all do it.  

It's a fairly straight forward contact form, uses php on the back end.  The server resources are good. Internet connection is fast, just wondering what would possibly cause this lag only on mobile.

Not really sure where to start.  Should I be looking for in CSS config?

Can I remove one all cache for one website from Chrome?
Hello friends,

I have been successfully using proxy.pac on my network for a long time, but recently I have noticed a problem that is getting worse (and I'm not finding a solution)...

Within minutes most computers are making hundreds (sometimes thousands) of requests to the webserver (apache) to load proxy.pac.

Analyzing Apache logs and network traffic, proxy.pac is successfully transferred on all requests.

As result of this: apache logs increase dramatically in a short time, network traffic (between stations and web server with proxy.pac) also increases tremendously and there is a considerable loss of speed / performance to open Internet pages.

This issue happens regardless of operating system (Windows or Mac OS X). The default browser used on the network is Google Chrome.

Has anyone here ever been through this? Tips?

Thank you in advance.

google chrome cannot show the print preview when the built in pdf viewer is missing
Very strange problem
I have been using xampp in windows 10 for many months - no problems at all
In the last couple of days I have the problem where I try to log into phpmyadmin or any other site on my local webserver which requires a login, chrome browser just hangs
All the sites work in Firefox - no issues

I cannot see where the problem is in Chrome - I know I can recreate the Google chrome Data file and create a new one but I would rather not have to do that as I lose my settings
If I access the site from another pc with Chrome, the sites work just fine

Any ideas
I have an nginx development site that I can't get into because it keeps auto-populating to https. This is because I the copied files and database from an existing https enabled site.  Is there a way to force a browser to only use http for this site?

This site hasn't been propogated so there is no dns.  Thus, no way to have an ssl cert.

Because it keeps filling in the https I get a message the site can't be reached.  I have tried filling it in manually and deleting the history but it still keeps accessing https.

Google Chrome Browser: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (32-bit)
Windows OS (10 & 8.1)

The speed of loading web pages in my Google Chrome Browser had become slow. While looking through the advanced settings of the Google Chrome Browser, I clicked on the selection titled: "Manage Certificates". I noticed there are a large number of certificates.

(see Title of this post)
When, if ever, does it become (a) necessary or (b) advisable to remove (delete) one or more SSL certificates?
Is there a method that allows you to easily find "expired" certificates?
What would be the expected result if one were to remove ALL certificates? Could this cause problems, or would they simply reinstall themselves as needed, when those sites were visited again?
In a Web application:

I need to take a screenshot of a chart that has so many columns that it flows off the right hand side of the screen. I reduce the Chrome zoom to 67% but then, the individual cells become so small that it would be hard for the reader to understand it.

Would it be considered a proper practice to split the table into two lines, with some clear indication that the 2nd screenshot is merely a continuation of the first?

HI Experts

we have Citrix xendesktop
and some users need to use Google Chrome  but i dont want all users to use it

so i want to find a way to remove the icons from the task bar  

because we are using rooming profiles AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

i know that i use GPO to make APPlocker  but i want also to remove the icron for all users from task bar

any scritp or command can do this form me

kindly advice
Can someone please explain where in the page this background image is coming from? I'm looking in the Chrome dev tools Computed section for various elements that cover that part of the page, and none of them seem to set a background image.

The main image is in a slider. If I remove the slider using the GUI editor for the site, the other image still displays in the editor, but in a way that indicates something might be a bit corrupted somewhere in the WordPress page data. I'm trying to figure out how to clean it up, or at least hide the unwanted image.

Edit: Apologies, the url is
