I just joined experts exchange today so please let me know if I post something incorrectly.  I have an html page that contains the following javascript:

window.open("mailto:xxx.yyy.com");

My default email program is Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code on IE11, Firefox, or Edge it correctly pops up a blank email window from Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code in Chrome, I get the correct blank email window from Outlook 2016 but I also get another blank browser window as well which I manually have to close.  Is there any workaround to not have that extra blank browser window pop up in Chrome.  Thank you for any replies.

Formerly, (can't recall if it was on this computer or my previous PC), when I click an email link in a web document, it would spawn an Outlook form populated with the email address.

Now, however, it take me into Windows Mail (which I may have accidentally configured):

Mail formHow can I reconfigure Windows to spawn the outlook window? This issue occurs in both Chrome and Edge.

Thanks.

This weekend we missed out of tickets for Glastonbury Festival for the first time in 6 years.  

As well as the official resale's, they also have unofficial sales of small batches of tickets on this URL: https://glastonbury.seetickets.com/

Please can someone recommend to me a website I can use to get email alerts for when websites change.

I was signing up to www.followthatpage.com but then discovered they may only check every 20 minutes which means there is a big gap where lots of other people may get alerts first depending on when they setup the alert, is there other solutions available with shorter intervals OR, I do have my own hosting space and beginner/Intermediate web experience with WordPress, could I setup my own basic checking solution, maybe there is a plugin?

I guess it's about getting the right balance of not hitting a server too often and getting blacklisted too.

Win10:

Hi,
I'm trying to find out if I have any scheduled tasks running between, say, 5pm and 6pm. I'm having an issue with a web application (Zendesk) where something seems to log me out around that time of day (or maybe my authentication expires).  Occurs under Chrome Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit).

So, I'm thinking that some process (Google related possibly) may be running and causing this issue.

I've gotten into the task scheduler, and am wondering if there's a way to search for any tasks that run during a certain time interval. Either from this screen or some other screen.

Turning in now for the night, but will check back in the morning.
Thanks.

Windows Authentication in Chrome does not works as expected from AD/Domain environment.

It works perfect in Firefox after adding the http://app.domain.local to network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris

It works also good in Edge and Internet Explorer after adding the URL in Local Intranet - Sites.

I expect it to work in Chrome too. But I am always being promted. Any ideas?

I have tried with or without Negotiate security method for Windows Authentification. I am currently using only NTLM.

Chrome version 69.0.3497.100 64 bit.

Chrome's default bookmarks display seems like a mess to me.

Need an extension to better display / navigate bookmarks that DOES NOT require me to share my bookmarks with the platform.

So that the re-organization and spiff new display is generated on my side rather thatn a bookmark services side.

Want an extension which uses code run on my machine rather than sharing all my bookmarks over to the extension, them repackaging them, and sending them back to me in the new format.

A privacy-first bookmark organizer.

Anything like this made / available?

Is there a "feature", app, utility or ANY method that will tell Windows 10 to NEVER change my Chrome startup page unless I specifically authorize it? I want my startup page to ALWAYS be https://www.google.com   Somehow it seems that something is able to change it at will to something else. Lately I am getting Home Depot's main page. I need some way of locking the page I want in CONCRETE as much as is possible. Does anyone have any suggestions that might work for me.

HI,
I've always been under the impression that Google Chrome's incognito mode does not remember any of one's activity on the web.

Yet, when I sign on to Gmail, and enter my email address:

1, When I type a few characters, it displays my email address on the next line (scrubbed screenshot below):
Autocomplete

2, It remembers my password.
 password remembered
What would explain this behavior?
Thanks,
Steve

Whenever I am using Chrome and there is something that requires Adobe Flash Player(AFP). I get a message saying click to enable AFP. and when I do that another pop-up box says run flash allow -block. See screen capture. In spite of every time, I say yes to run flash it keeps coming up every time there is AFP need in what I am trying to access. Is there a way to enable AFP to run without being asked every single time?

Thank you,

Hi Experts,

Within Chrome, or any web browser is it possible to show spelling errors on a website? I don't mean on a form, but particularly on a web page's published content.

I am working on a complex questionnaire, and I am using just code within NetBeans, and actually strings so I need to see if any errors?

Thank you,

Issue with web content filter GPO, it refers to proxy settings which look changed, working from IE 8 to IE11

Only thing is within Group Policy, I see Internet Explorer Maintenance under User configuration-Policies

in this i can see the old proxy being referenced, from what I can see IEM is deprecated for IE 11

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/missing-internet-explorer-maintenance-settings-for-ie11 

When I try to edit the web content filter I don't see Internet Explorer Maintenance,

Any best way to do this within Windows Settings I can only see

-Scripts (Logon\Logoff)
-Security Settings
-Folder Redirection
-Policy based QOS

Is there a handy\quick way to check this?

Bootstrap 4: Exploring New Features

Learn how to use and navigate the new features included in Bootstrap 4, the most popular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework for developing responsive, mobile-first websites.

Reading a Wikipedia page with countless links in text of article.  Literally every other word or more.

Wikipedia links offer preview.  Like them.  Don't want them suppressed.

But, is there any way I can add a delay to how quickly once the link is touched to when the preview pops open?

Alternatively, to add some kind of link sensing suppressor /sensor to when I'm browsing a Wikipedia page so that just brushing against a link is not an actual preview request.

Thanks!

I'm trying to access Cricut Design Space and I keep getting this error page (see attached). Is this on Cricut's end? Or mine? The site was working fine, then I refreshed, and got this weird page instead. Same thing on other browsers I tried: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE.

https://www.garrison.com/browsing.php

I'm looking for similar competing products (preferably with local Singapore support presence) to provide
secure browsing of Internet and emails (these are the top 2 vectors of malwares): looking to adopt this
'logical segregation' instead of 'physical segregation':
I suppose this is more useable/implementable than doing physical segregation.

We have corporate Wifi too, so need to take this into consideration if it's relevant.

Q1:
Can suggest a few products & local resellers (if available)?

Q2:
if there's comparison of features (how each product fare against competitors), do provide as well.
It helps to justify the purchase.

I think there's a bug in the latest Chrome update Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Been testing a web page that opens a new tab that launches a uri protocol handler in Windows to open a local application to receive data.  1st run works, tab opens, local app opened and data passed.  Subsequent runs open new tab but local app never opens.  Found that all I need to do is click anywhere in any page in between runs, then next run works.  Just closing the pop up tab or switching tabs does not solve the problem.  I have to click in any open page even if just in blank space.

I tested this a little a few weeks ago and did not notice this issue before Chrome updated.

Same test in Internet Explorer works fine.

I have tested with two different exe's as the application, and also on 3 different pc's with Chrome.
