    Happy New Year everyone, thanks for your help in 2017 and here's looking forward to more in 2018. (Not that I'm a 'glass half empty'person but just resigned to the fact that if only 0.05% of users get beggared up by a failed WU, I'll be one of those! Having said that, today's WU went incredibly smoothly and very quick - under 35 minutes.)

    I took myself off-topic previously and then had fun with the family holiday break and a one-word thread here. Now back to business.

    I have my second Comfort 4500 mouse ready to install. The Mouse & Keyboard Centre was a beggar to install and when I eventually did it it didn't work. I've tried again just now and have a new message via a Bing search that it only works with Win10 Pro.

    I wish they'd make up their blasted mind. Is there any other way I can install this mouse manually so that MS doesn't do to it what it's done to the first one?

    Oops - that was silly


    Got the new Comfort Mouse ready for a manual installation but due to confusion installing the latest WU (to 16299.192) on my Acer back-up laptop, I plugged in the new mouse here. Early days yet but the problem I described with the other mouse aren't occurring all the time - strange.

    What I've found interesting is that I've deleted Office365 on the Acer to give me more options when I need to renew it at the end of the month. I saw this article http://www.techradar.com/news/the-be...microsoft-word and chose to install Libre Office v5.3 (the 'conservative' version - not the latest 'more dynamic' one.) When I highlight text in the Libre documents I don't have the problems that this thread is all about. Wonderful!!!
