    Default Microsoft reader is no longer available for PDF's



    Every time I must use windows I'm running through hoops. I don't have access to the internet on the windaz computer yet the update has reduced the capability of the machine to a paperweight.

    fecken windows, been only using it 5 minutes and I'm ready to punch the wall.

    rant over
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I've looked into your problem, and it's clear that the problem lies somewhere between keyboard and chair. Do you still have the boxes the computer came in?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Create a hotspot using your mobile and then connect the pc to the hotspot and download ms reader.

    Yes - it's my fault. Of course. Dear Microsoft, accept my apologies. Here have some money.

    Doing my accounts and finding Office 2016 Excel has got v slow. Change a cell and wait seconds for mouse to move. No idea why, no VBA, and only same links as I have very year.

    rant NOT over. My ranting is never over, just moves from subject to subject.

    Same experience here. Copy-paste between cells causes a freeze for a couple of seconds, a powerful workstation too.

    Check for large tables? I had a worksheet where I created some YUGE tables to 'allow for expansion', when performance suffered, cutting them down to the actual realistic size restored it.

    But in general, I agree. Fed up with functionality being changed or removed.

    The Groove Music iOS and Android apps will be retired on December 1, 2018. After that date, the apps won't work and should be uninstalled
    My subconscious is annoying. It's got a mind of its own.
