I have a legacy application that doesn't optimize for a resolution above 1024X768. As most of you know these days new computers and monitors want much higher resolutions. Does anyone know how to make a new computer and widescreen monitor work \ scale to full screen with a 1024X768 resolution?

Thanks

I've been using a SAMSUNG TV as a second monitor for months now. I woke up today and the screen isn't the same.

The browser top and edges were cut off so I couldn't see the close box and header area. The text is all kind of pixilated. Not crisp. Same with images. Just really poor quality.

I haven't changed anything that I know of, unless I bumped something.

I went to the tv remote and use the settings to set the Picture Size (which is 16:9) to turn on Fit to Screen to get the browser headers back on the screen and the toolbar. It was off.

I did the remote control > settings > reset picture. On the picture it displays, it is crisp and nice. Not grainy. But when I exited back to my desktop, it is all still grainy.

I used the desktop  Display Settings to confirm the Scale and Layout weren't something unusual.
100% and resolution is 1920x1080 recommended.

Tried all of the other options and still grainy.

Not sure where to go from here.

thanks!

I've got a solid little MacBook Pro, but even after eliminating some files and streamlining things, I'm constantly getting the message that says I'm running out of space. Mind you, I am running Parallels so it's not just Documents, Files and Photos.

Bottom line: I'm looking at supplementing my toolbox with a Desktop. I've grown very spoiled at my current employer's office with a great little Dell and two monitors.

Rather than getting a Mac and continuing the scenario where I've got access to both operating systems, I thought that just duplicating what I've got a the office would be both effective and far more economical.

This is what I'm looking at. The memory, the processor and the storage look more than adequate, but I wanted some other eyes on this and get some additional input.

What do you think?

Installed a new server and created new folder redirection to the new server. One user is unable to access desktop icons and files because the file path is incorrect. Have used gpupdate /force several time with no change. When you try to edit the file path in Explorer under Desktop/Location tab there are no options available to move or edit or anything. The Documents, Downloads and other folders all redirected as expected. This is a Windows 10 machine connected to a domain.

We are trying to rollout User Profile Disk, but we are experiencing issues.  We have researched and read a number of posts that Server 2012/2016 User Profile Disk (UPD) can corrupt user profiles and many others have mentioned to not use it.  Our goal is to have users logon to any Windows 10 desktop (that is joined to the domain) and they receive their Windows profile.

Please share your thoughts and personal experiences with User Profile Disk, most important if you are successfully utilzing it the way we are seeking.  If you are using an alternative, please feel free to share that as well.

Thank you for your assistance, thoughts and suggestions.

I am running Linux Mint 19.2 on my desktop. I also installed a second internal hard drive. I want to create a second user account (which I know how to do), but set up the system in such a way so that only the administrator (my account) can access this second hard drive. The second user should only be able to access the hard drive on which Linux is installed. Can anybody tell me how to do this? I need step by step instructions, please.

I have a user on a shared Win 10 office computer that is reporting putting the computer to "sleep" before leaving for the day. When she comes in the following day, she is not being asked for a password to log back in. It just pops to her desktop. It is a problem as others in the office may use this hotdesk computer, Is this controlled via a Policy? Other ideas?  Thank you.

screen shotI was executing a long running vba macro when my windows 10 desktop went crazy.
the windows key no longer does anything and I cannot key in search phrases.
I can still launch applications that are in the quicklanch, and while they are running things seem to work.

a reboot does not help, and changing the windows theme does not help.
If I log in as Administrator the desktop looks normal, so I think my profile was zapped.
I am think about using the system restore to the one and only restore point which is a week old.

Before I do that, does anybody have any idea of to fix this ?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Hi,

We bought a windows server 2019 standard licence with a per core licensing.
I've attached a screenshot of how the RDP license looks in the RD Licensing ManagerRD Licensing Manager
Does this mean there's no need to buy RDP CALs? Would I be able to always open as many RDP connections as I'd like from any desktop in the domain?
If so, is this because we purchased a per core license?
Thanks!
