    If it is like RAMDisk that comes with MSI boards, using the browser options, but writing/saving to disk as less as you can/trust, will also save wear & tear on your SSD, because the caches are updated too often with browsers.
    Cliff, for those who forgot or don't know.....in FF, it's this setting in about:config. Default is 15 seconds (absurd). I use 10 minutes. Not sure for other browsers.

    Waiting the next build, I just want to remind you geeks that Windows 10 works better if it has enough RAM.

    Download more RAM to your PC, completely free: DownloadMoreRAM.com - CloudRAM 2.0

    For a moment there I thought you were pushing some sort of memory compression software... Remember those, from back in the day when very slow ram was $50-$100 per MEGabyte...?....! Made some sense then, and even worked occasionally, as I recall. Memories...pressed between the pages of my ram (sorry for that awful pun!)

    I misunderstood. I thought you wanted to have objects, graphics, etc. changed along with fonts. I played with the 150% and found it to be OK, but I don't use anything except 100% on my computer. Maybe my vision is not as keen as yours.

    Here's something I discovered that *sort of* makes up for removing the separate font-size selector...it's the new compatibility options in 15019 for games (or other applications)...Click image for larger version.

    Take a look at my screenshot at the Gothic 2 system properties Compatibility Options setting for Override high DPI scaling behavior, scaling performed by [your choice of three options]: Application, System, or System enhanced

    Note that I have this set to "application" which is a very nice option, because I have my desktop DPI set 125% scaling in order to get close to the size fonts I prefer on my desktop, but when I run the Gothic game itself, the game is looking for a max of 100% scaling in Windows--and the game automatically opens at 100% scaling...! If I do not select this option then the 125% scaling is carried into the game itself--and looks bad because everything is blown up and the font scaling isn't right. But this new option corrects the problem of higher desktop DPI scaling that used to plague Windows software for many years when selecting more than a 100% DPI desktop setting.

    This doesn't completely make up for the absence of the font-size selector, imo, but it ameliorates the problem of scaling the desktop in games and applications. Pretty nice. Not sure what the other options do at the moment...

    Walt, this is OT, but I like your wallpaper. Recall where you found it?

    ETA: Nevermind. I googled and luckily found it.

    That is a nice background. Do you still have the link?

    How does it done? Did you try to print it from Mail too?*Acrobat X Pro is different from Acrobat XI Pro?
    I do not use the Mail program, so I did not try from Mail. In edge, I print the page AI want and select Adobe PDF (NOT Microsoft Print to PDF - that is WinX native).

    When you use hte Print dialog, you get a popup that allows you to select the printer that you want ot use - I just change it to Adobe PDF when I want a PDF, because it then automatically opens in Acrobat Pro and I can edit waht I need to.

    Or, I could first verify that the VM is set to take IP Fast builds, couldn't I?

    Nah, that would be too logical....
    Always the little things....

    Final VM is now upgraded to 15019.

    I think that that now I am going to make snapshots of each machine to be able to compare them quickly. Well, maybe 1 machine, anyway, as I don't really have the sapce to make multiple snapshots of multiple machines....
