    Hi Ed. Sent email (parts 3 to 6), got out of office reply
  2. I agree: and "desktops aren't going anywhere" is a great play on words, considering the very mobile/stationary distinction you yourself drew!
    Keep up the good work.

    That's what my thinking was as well. Books just can't keep up with needed updates. Especially with how fast things can change from build to build.

    I believe that desktops are not going anywhere. Instead, it's just mobile and portable devices are finally viable options for people making them more popular for now.

    Hey Ed,

    Not off the top of my head.

    Thank you very much for the rep, Ed

    An updated NVMe drive will quickly become more & more important, because, the new Kaby Lake series can support many more PCIe lanes.

    From the tech YouTube channels I subscribe to, motherboard makers, like MSI are putting in two, even three M.2 slots in their higher end dual purpose gaming/workstation Z270 boards(more for work stations than gamers as it wouldn't make any real noticeable difference in gaming. But when moving very large files, like video editing then yes.)
  6. Thanks for the rep. reuplicate Cleaner i must admit it has sooooo many options. I've only used the basics but has been a big help.

    Thanks Ed - the Windows Store is beginning to be worth looking a for innovative programs, albeit quality Apps are still few and far between, and there is no reliable link from an internet search to the Windows (or any other) Store content index. Sadly, the artisan "freeware", "Shareware", etc., era is probably over, with the increasingly stringent requirement for certification of executables, and the inevitable attrition of brilliant, possibly still relevant, but dated utilities.

    Still, there is now a gap in the market for some entrepreneurial geek or two to bring together the old and new to start making computers more user friendly again, instead of the trend towards elitism that has marked Windows 8 and beyond, IMO.

    I remember I got a right slagging off last year when I suggested that the command line in Powershell was a backwards step from a program back-end with a graphical user interface in Windows which would empower the user to do powerful things from selecting items on a dashboard or other program interface (which would eliminate errors from syntax, typos etc., and create a universal resource application.) All it would take is a script (in Powershell!) that would allow user interaction to select available downloads (in much the same way as package managers in Linux work - but no-one seemed willing to take that on board.

    It was when PowerGet or such was being promoted by Kari - not that I disagreed with the power of the commandline, but with it's intrinsic one off use, which if built into a robust interface would serve not only the power user, but the casual user alike over a range of uses.Hence the "elitist" comment.

    Still we old fogeys on the forum have to have our outlet

    Hi Ed, on the paged file/memory query, I've dropped out of that given his response. But it does seem to me you need to know details as per my screenshot. That's basic- I wouldn't expect 64Gb to fill up like that, and equally, if memory compression isn't working (my other request) that would be a factor.

    But he's ignored those basic things. Anyway, it's probably sthg more complicated I know nothing about, so I'll leave it and maybe learn.. Good luck - and Happy New Year!
