In a recent question here at Experts Exchange, a member wants to enhance an AutoHotkey script that performs "Title Case" conversion. The enhancement is to allow specification of words that are excluded from the capitalization (conjunctions and prepositions). This article presents such a solution.

In a question here at Experts Exchange, a member has users with a large number of monitors connected to their W10 computers. The member wants an AutoHotkey script that defines hotkeys — Alt+Ctrl+1, Alt+Ctrl+2, etc. — to move the mouse pointer to the monitors. This article presents such a solution.

Many programming languages have a Switch–Case capability. Since its first beta in 2003, AutoHotkey has not had one. Finally, in the recent 28-Sep-2019 release of Version 1.1.31.00, it now has Switch–Case. This article discusses it and shows a sample usage as applied to a previous post here at EE.

I saw the title and read this - some of our windows 10 machines are encountering a problem with the August updates.  One AIO was unable to boot after the update and another Dell Optiplex 990 machine had a similar problem.

An EE member wants to move all open windows at once (not one window at a time) from a primary monitor to a secondary one by pressing a hotkey. Bonus: another hotkey that goes in the other direction — move all windows from the secondary to the primary monitor. This article presents such a solution.

This article is about an excellent bookmarks manager I've been using that I thought deserved some promotion to make more folks aware of its existence. Free to use and very useful indeed. Enjoy...

This is a helpful article. One thing to remember is that keeping one (or more) Start.Me tabs open is going to consume significantly more memory than browser bookmarks.

I used to love XMarks but years ago I ditched it when I was getting synchronization and corruption issues on a daily basis. These days I just use the default browser sync in Chrome (though I'll be migrating to Firefox soon).

Your configured DNS nameservers may be impeding your Internet experience. Improve the response times you get from websites by using a faster DNS Server. This article shows you how to both find better DNS servers to use, as well as how to configure your copy of Windows 7 and 10 to use them.

Hi Andrew,

Great article! Having recently struggled with a Safe Mode boot on a W10 system, I can certainly see the value of this utility (haven't tried it yet, but it's on my to-do list). Kudos to you for writing the article and sharing with our community; and kudos to Nick for writing the software and providing it at no cost.

This article shows how to save the names and URLs of open Firefox tabs in a plain text file with FoxyTab, a Featured Extension. I tested it in the latest Firefox Quantum release (61.0.1 on this article's publication date), both 32-bit and 64-bit, and in Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 — all worked perfectly.

Sometimes PaperPort will not even open. It displays the splash screen (above) and exits, or it may show an "Application Crash" dialog before exiting (sometimes with a dump, sometimes not). There are many reasons for this problem. This article discusses several of them and offers possible solutions.

Sometimes PaperPort will not even open. It displays the splash screen (above) and exits, or it may show an "Application Crash" dialog before exiting. There are many reasons for this, but a recent cause that has reached epidemic levels is due to an issue with Firefox. This article offers a solution.

Paperport 14.5 would not load (stopped at flashscreen, no error message) after upgrading to Windows 10.  Also had installed Firefox on this computer, so not sure which event caused the problem.  In any case, the registry indeed had Mozilla Firefox in the browser preference.  Your regedit file fixed the problem immediately and I have my Paperport back.  Thank you so much!

Thank you so much Andrew for your time,
I will defenetely share results as soon as I sort this out.
Meanwhile I would like to share some details. I have tried to set up outlook using this account on fresh installed PC and sorted out the "User Profile" and Certificate issues. After trying all options I am confident that this is not general issue and precisely this account related issue. Cose' when I try to install other gmail account on that PC it goes smooth. Checked incoming mails and outgoing mails. Account never sended more than 100 mails per month - so account is not spammer. (In fact this is embassy's non essential communication address). Likewise never received mail noting it was blocked. I will use "Send feedback" option right away and will share results if I receive. Many and sincere thanks for your time and attention. Have a nice life. Arvin.

If you are a hacker, will you design a rootkit for Android OS?

Jackie,

The short answer is yes, but there is really no need.  Hackers are more likely to use lockers than rootkits on androids. Due to the need to elevate privileges to properly execute a rootkit,  the target for such an attack would be more limited than standard lockers.

There are many software programs on offer that will claim to magically speed up your computer. The best advice I can give you is to avoid them like the plague, because they will often cause far more problems than they solve. Try some of these "do it yourself" tips instead.

The Windows functions GetTickCount and timeGetTime retrieve the number of milliseconds since the system was started. However, the value is stored in a DWORD, which means that it wraps around to zero every 49.7 days. This article shows how to solve that problem by using the GetTickCount64 function.
