Quick question.  I'm not familiar with the new EE interface. How do I search questions I have previously asked that have been solved?

Is experts exchange good for python help?
Dear EE,

How do i determine which MS SQL 2008 R2 Native Client 32 bit or 64 bit is installed on my Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit Standard Edition ?

Can someone explain how "Last 30 Days" is calculated?   Last week my points were around 32,000.  How do I get to double that in a week?
sometimes, when answering questions on EE, i think i hit a combination of keys, and the pc starts reading aloud everything on the page.
i looked how to stop that, but could not find it - except closing the window, but this is frustrating if you were in the middle of a rather long post

surely somebody knwos how?
I posted a question in the Experts section yesterday and noticed that I have a tag line.  I can't find this award anywhere.  Does anyone know what it is all about?
I closed an unclosed question - I know I said I wasn't ever going to do this again but it looked obvious.  I selected the questioner's own reply as the best solution.  Why does he get 500 points to answer his own question?

I just started my 7 day Trial of Cloud Class and am looking for a course that I saw before Cloud Class was introduced.  It was about how to do things on a MAC that you can do on a Windows machine, but I can't seem to find it no matter how many search terms I've tried.

Can anyone point me to the video/course in question?
While trying to comment on this question:

The Write a Comment form appears to have a height of 217827px (probably about 217300px too much). The Preview and Submit buttons were way down the bottom. I was able to preview my comment, but when I submitted it, the page reloaded without the comment (it didn't get added to the page). I tried again with a Hidden comment as a test, and the same thing happened. It seems quite broken.

I've tested it in both Chrome and Firefox, after hitting ctrl-F5 to force a refresh of the page.

How to delete Saved Searches and stop the damn hourly notices?
These damn things are annoying as hell and suddenly, without any involvement from me, have been turned on and I cannot stop them! I'm assuming it was a wonderful idea from someone at E-E.

- I've changed notifications to none by deselecting all of the hourly notification settings
- I attempted to find the place in E-E to delete the search, just so I stop getting notified, and cannot find that.

Please assist with how to stop these hourly notices and with deleting the search.
anyone knows how to disable the topic notifications ?

Expert Alert: The following question matches your Followed Topics alert....

i mean the notifications under the on site bell icon

Learning PowerApps and have used paid version of Experts Exchange on other topics with great results.  Did a search for "PowerApps" here and only found a handful of questions and answers.  

Are there PowerApps experts available to answer questions or is this too new at this time?  I noticed there is only a proposed topic for (*PowerApps), so not sure if going paid is worth it at this point.  

Any feedback on this topic?

This Q came to my attention via a Neglected Question Alert. It is priority high. Normally one of these is worth 3600 points.
When I hover over my solution, it says 2250 points were awarded. What is going on?
I ask a question and can edit question until first expert comment.

Can expert edit their comment?

Can first expert edit comment after second expert posts comment.

I ask because I should read comments from beginning multiple times because first expert comment may change.
Hi I want to delete a question on Experts Exchange but after clicking the three ribbons the only options I get are : print and Knowldege base. I dont have that delete question option.
I'm looking for a System Center Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM)  expert to hire through Experts Exchange for a Team Viewer remote session to help me properly configure and finish setting up my SCCM 2016 server within my Server 2016 network.

What are the best methods to search and find a list of qualified SCCM 2016 Experts Exchange experts to find the best expert to help me with this?
How can I embed a correction into a previously answered question?

In February of 2017 I posted a lengthy summary of how to print a vba project to a file.

In June of 2017  I added a short correction at the bottom of the post.

But, I would much prefer to have embedded the June correction directly into the lenghty February post.  I also working on some additional details that I would like to add.

That way, anybody who grabs my solution would not have to read the entire post.

Is there anyway to do this?

although i'm here on daily basis, but since EE added the courses page, it seems i'm lost! I started to make a course (course title, image and description), saved it and went off that page.
Now, HOT do go and edit my course?!! if i go to the courses section, it tells me that i have to subscribe and have 7 free days to try, i went to my profile, didn't find the course i started to edit.

How do i continue editing my course? Thanks.
I stopped logging in about a year ago after they raised the minimum to 10K points per month...

Was curious to come back & answer a question...
I was pleasantly surprised when it said I qualified again with only 3K!

When did they go back & why?
How to delete a question?
Hello Experts Exchange experts :)

I'd like to get an on-site notification whenever a member I choose to follow posts a question, posts a comment to any question or makes a post. I know I can go to a members profile and check their history, but this is both a cumbersome and tiresome way of doing it. Is there a way to do this that I'm unaware of?

I asked this question in one of the support groups once I think and was told I could set up a saved search that I could use, but I'd have to create a saved search for every member I want to follow and run each search one by one which would take too much time.

For the purpose of this question, let's use Joe Winograd as an example - an expert I find very useful who often posts Video's, answers to questions I haven't participated in or makes a post in a Group discussion. Articles are not an issue because I get notified of all article submissions to EE.

What I need

1. How do I configure my EE settings so that I get an on-site notification whenever there is *any* activity by Joe or anyone else I follow?


2. Alternatively, how can I configure a saved search that includes *all* members I want to follow and receive on-site notifications for whenever there is *any* activity by them?

Please include detailed and step by step instructions on any solution to give me this ability.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Regards, Andrew
When I'm on the main Home Page of Experts Exchange (see below for an example), I get a list of Questions from ALL topics.

EE Home Page
What I want to achieve is to have only questions that match my selected Topics - Not ALL topics.

Can someone direct me as to how to get the appropriate area to achieve this "and" how to set it up so that only questions from my selected Topic will show up on the EE Home page please?

Many thanks...
