You know me Rhuddlan, I don't like change especially on computers but Windows 10 updates my computer whether I like it or not so I have no control on that.
When it happened the whole screen changed to a pale background with these multi coloured vertical lines all over it and I couldn't see any buttons on the screen let alone use them
Next time I'm on the computer at night and it happens I will exit it by pressing the silver button and  go to bed

Anyway what are you doing on the forum when you should be relaxing in the sunshine on that island?

For uses of any Microsoft software it's worth noting that EU legal judgements now treat the accompanying licence key as property that can be bought and sold like other lawfully acquired possessions. That. of course, is not the judgement that Microsoft wanted. They’d prefer to force purchasers of second hand media to buy new keys, but that is now illegal under EU law.

One of our members has some brand new and unused Canon Pixma MG 5150 ink cartridges. If anyone can use them let me know in this topic and we can take it from there.

Just a reminder to what Ian has posted.       I had a Canon Pixma MG 5150 printer but it went kaput just after I had ordered 5 new in cartridges so the cartridges are no use to me now.

The Canon cartridges are CLI-526 and one is CLI-525.   and can be used in some other 5 cartridge Canon Pixma printers.      The inks are new and unopened so if any forum member can use them they are welcome to them and can have them for free

If any one can use them then please send a PM to either Ian or myself and we can arrange for them to be picked up.

A while ago I said I would send a copy of an article on the Kinmel Camp railway branch that was printed in the Back Track Magazine.

For some reason I can not get into scan. In the past I have just pressed the Printer button and a menu came up,easy, no problem.
Now all I get is a panel asking me if I want to install an app that will make changes to my hard drive. Very reluctant to do this .
Every couple of weeks Windows 10 keeps making updates and every time it seems to cause problems . Why do they need to do this when everything is working fine ?

Any sugestions please for me to get into scanning ?

Hi,
My walking friend Hugo has asked me to put a message
On the forum to say his computer is broken and he cannot therefore access the forum or reply to emails etc at this time.
Thanks.

Wish Hugo all the best from me. I sent him an email the other day wondering if he was OK.

I am ok and keeping safe and well and hope that you are too.   The IT guy is coming here on Monday so I hope that he can sort my laptop out.    One good thing is that I saved everything on a separate hard drive so I have not lost anything this time
I have used Mrs H  tablet and it is driving me nuts so I will not be posting much until Monday
