A miscellany is defined as a "collection of various pieces of writing by different authors", but it has come to mean something "Of items gathered or considered together of various types or from different sources" or "a collection or group composed of members or elements of different kinds". The word "miscellaneous" comes from the Latin word "miscere", meaning "to mix." You might have heard the expression "a mixed bag," which applies when you don't quite know what you're going to get. More commonly, a miscellaneous group is made up of an odd group of things that don't fit anywhere else.

What are some utilities or methods to remove items from the Windows Explorer right click/context menu (such as the "Add to MPC-HC Playlist" or the "Play with MPC-HC"?

There are several applications that have added things to this menu. While I need to keep these applications installed, I want to be able to remote some of the items that have been added to the Windows Explorer right click/context menu within Windows 10.

Please provide me with the instructions on how to perform a Windows 10 repair installation where the Windows 10 operating system will be reinstalled but all programs, data, and configurations within the current operating system will restored within the new Windows 10 installation.

I have seen other people do this several times and want to be sure I use the right process so that all user data and software programs are preserved within the new Windows installation.

Is this simply as easy as creating the Windows 10 installation media from the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 website, downloading the Windows 10 ISO file, running the setup.exe file and then choosing to perform a recovery installation?

So I walked into this newly built server room and see a water sprinklers hanging right on the top of the racks.

I never seen sprinklers in the server rooms before in my career.  Is it acceptable for the server rooms or absolutely no no?   Wonder other's opinions before I push back hard.  I understand this is not a data center but a server room for 100 users office floor.
Thanks in advance.

A Windows 10 user has an intermittent problem where she is sometimes unable to print to any network printer.

I troubleshoot this issue by doing the following:

1. Confirming that this user's laptop is on the corporate Wi-Fi network that the network printers are connected to
2. Making sure that network discovery is enabled and then disabling and then re-enabling network discovery
3. Stopping and restarting the print spooler service
4. Disconnecting from and then reconnecting to the Wi-Fi network
5. Releasing & renewing the IP address, and then flushing and registering the DNS cache
6. Clearing temporary & temporary internet files

Restarting the user's laptop will usually fix this issue and the user is then able to print.

This laptop has all current Windows 10 & Office 2016 updates installed and has no detectable malware or viruses

However I'm trying to fix the underlying issue so that this issue will stop occurring. If this issue ever does occur I want to be able to fix it without having to restart the user's laptop.

What can be done to prevent this issue with the user not being able to print from her Windows 10 laptop?

I'm looking for a URL to download Office 2016 Professional Plus (from the Volume License Service Center).

A customer has provided me with an Office 2016 Professional Plus Volume License Service Center activation key and needs this product installed on several computers.

The problem is that while I have been able to download and install Office 2016 Professional Plus from the Microsoft website when I try to activate it using this VLSC product number activation key I receive the error message shown in the screenshot "This product key is for the volume-licensed version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016, which isn't currently installed. To use this product key, contact your administrator." (see the screenshot--The product key has been whited out).

So please provide me with a URL address of where I can download the Office 2016 Professional Plus (from the Volume License Service Center).

A non Microsoft URL will be fine.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I am wondering how long a controller for a PS4 console will retain its charge.  It is my understanding it will need to be fully charged via standard to micro USB cable when the PS4 console is removed from its box.  I believe the front LED area of the controller will be an amber color when needing to be charged and a blue color when fully charged.   However, I was unclear about the time duration for the retention of the charge.

            Thank you

            George

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

I am a contractor and I have been asked by my agency to form an Umbrella company for tax reasons. When I explained that I was only hoping for a 6 month contract they said this is how they operate. I have received some quotes but I don't really understand how much I should be paying and is this for the long term?

Any help would be appreciated

This phone will be exclusively used in Vietnam, 5% Cambodia, 5% Thailand.

Desired specs:
2G or more likely 3G, dual slot, camera, internet capable, touch screen.
Apple and Samsung won't work as they are too expensive.

As far as data for internet I do not know how many GB they would desire (or really need) and I can not pry to much as far as what they would want. The gift is to be a phone far better than the one they have (previous question on Nokia 150).
-------------------------
CDMA is not used outside of North America, so you will not get any coverage at all. Your CDMA phone will useless in Vietnam or prettywell anywhere outside of the USA and Canada (and even there CDMA is a dying standard). You will need a GSM phone and one that operates on non-North American frequencies; i.e. a quad-band phone.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am interested in purchasing a PS4 console with a controller which brings me to the purpose of this post.   When selecting a PS4 console with controller, what exactly should I be looking for with respect to features.  Are all PS4 consoles the same?  The games I am purchasing the PS4 console for are PacMan https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/arcade-game-series-pac-man/cid=UP0700-CUSA03955_00-PACMAN0000000000  , Eight Ball Deluxe https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/eight-ball-deluxe/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000053  , and Cyclone https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/pinball-arcade-cyclone/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000036.  I hope these are full version games because the requested online purchase amount does seem low.  

          With respect to budget, I would like to purchase a PS4 console with controller within the price range of $250 to $300.  It seems like the average price is $300 based upon the ones reviewed on ebay and amazon.  

          Any feedback given in reply to this question will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you

          George
