  1. My printer issue has been resolved.
  2. In my opinion, since none of our members have an HP LaserJet Pro M118dw printer this post should be removed.
  3. I have to replace my LaserJet 1320 printer, and I was wondering if any of our members have an HP LaserJet Pro M118DW. If so, I would appreciate hearing about your experience with it. As always I will appreciate all replies and I would thank you in advance John
  4. Most likely it would be easier to just continue what I am doing, emailing the documents to the Desktop and printing from the Desktop. And yes it is an old printer but as I said earlier I have not had one problem with it and I have used the print on both sides more times than I can remember. So my assumption was correct, and I cannot with WiFi use my printer to print from my Laptop! So, I am back to purchasing a print server; does anyone know if I will be able to continue printing from my Desktop with the setup as is and also printing from my Laptop utilizing a Print Server with its setup? Seems I may need Geek Squad to make a home visit and help me. Oh, well...
  5. Iconoclast The link you provided is for an HP LaserJet 1320nw Wireless printer, my printer is an HP LaserJet 1320. I had hopes that one of our other members might also have the same type printer I have and might know. I have searched but have not found information regarding whether the 1320 can be connected by WiFi or not. That is why I also asked the question regarding a Printer Server.
  6. I have an hp LaserJet 1320 printer that is directly connected to my Desktop computer by way of a USB port; the Desktop is connected to a Time Warner Cable router by way of an Ethernet cable. The printer prints fine and has never been a problem. The Desktop operating system is Windows XP Pro. I also have an Lenovo Ideapad 110 Laptop, operating system is Windows 10 Home, that I can access the internet by WiFi. The only way I can print from my Laptop is to email the documents to my Desktop and then print from there. I have tried to connect to my printer by WiFi but haven't been able to. Does anyone know if this is possible? I suspicion the printer does not have wireless capability. Therefore, I am considering purchasing a Print Server and if I do does anyone know if I will be able to print from my Desktop as it is, and my Laptop by using the Print Server? I hope this isn't too confusing. As always I will appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  7. Iconoclast I have resolved my blank document top and bottom margin not appearing. Open Microsoft Word, Tools> Options> choose the View Tab, under Print and Web Layout options be sure White space between pages (Print view only) is checked. Should anyone be experiencing the same problem I recommend them trying this solution it worked for me, but I still have no idea how it ever was changed in the first place. John
  8. Will dig a little more when I have the time, I have a work around that I can use instead of the blank document. Microsoft Office 2003 is so old it is hard to find help but for no more than I use it I can't justify purchasing the latest. Thanks for the reply. John
  9. In Microsoft Word 2003, when I select New Blank Document I should see a New Blank Document with the margins Top 1", Bottom 1", Left 1", Right 1". However the New Blank Document I see does not have a top or bottom margin. I cannot correct this by selecting Page Setup because the margins already reflect the above. I imagine the New Blank Document Template has become corrupted. If I am correct in my assumption I do not know what to do to correct it. Hopefully, one of our members know how to correct this and will tell me what I need to do. While I have the original disks to reinstall Microsoft Office 2003 I would prefer to reinstall only as a last resort. As always I will appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  10. Thanks Iconoclast, I tried two photos one photo didn't change while the other photo did. Actually, the one that did change didn't look bad at all. Thanks again, for the information. John
  11. I have a number of graduation photos in black and white that was taken in the 60s. I have heard there is software that will allow me to automatically convert them to color. I have absolutely no experience in doing something like this and was hoping someone in our forum has. If anyone has had experience in doing this I would appreciate knowing what software you used. As this will be a one time occasion I am hoping there is free software that I can download that will do this automatically; if I have to do anything manually I will need to forget it as I have absolutely no artistic skill whatsoever. As always I will appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  12. As far as I am concerned this has been resolved! I am not sure how, or even if I can, mark it as such. So if a moderator could assist me in doing so I would appreciate it very much. John
  13. 1) I seem to remember someone on a forum saying he was running Outlook 2003 on a computer with the Windows 10 Operating System and that all of its functions were working. I have had Outlook 2003 since it first come out I and I installed it on my Laptop when it was purchased three years ago. I haven't been using it because I use Outlook Express Classic Free, which serves my needs. But, I recently though I would see if it still worked. I can send emails but I can't receive them. So at least in my case it isn't compatible. Basically I was just curious. 2) I have not read this particular article but I will. Thanks for replying, I appreciate it. Note: Why there is still interest in old technology? Most likely it is because people purchased the old software when they needed and used it daily and now hate to buy newer software to do what the older did satisfactorily plus they only need to use it periodically.
  14. Just curious, is anyone using Microsoft Outlook 2003 with Windows 10. I know they said the two or not compatible but sometimes strange things happen. Thanks in advance for any replies. John
  15. Until recently I was using Hard Disk Sentinel as my heat monitoring software; I am only interested in being able to look at my system tray and seeing what my hard drive heat temperature is. The software I had was from a giveaway and until it is again offered as a giveaway, it seems to be given away often, I am looking for a similar software. If any members would have any recommendations I would appreciate hearing from them. As always I will appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  16. As far as I am concerned my post has been answered; is there something I need to do to mark it as answered? If someone could advise me I would appreciate it very much.
  17. Have any other forum members been experiencing problems with Firefox and Chrome loading? Today is the second time I have experienced this problem while not having any difficulty whatsoever with Opera. I realize networks are experiencing more traffic now than before and also that Firefox and Chrome are more popular than Opera. Today when I downloaded the new version of Firefox, I was using Opera at the time, I couldn't even install the program. It would install probably 95% than would give me a message that it couldn't finish the installation. When I tried again later in the evening the new program installed as normal with no problems. Just curious if others are also having this difficulty. If not I suppose it may have something to do with my provider. Wednesday and Thursday my internet speed was not near as high as normal and I excused that to high internet traffic. Anyway, just asking. As always I will appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance.
  18. Thanks for replying Boris, I will do as you suggested. I have added "https//www.speedtest.net" as a speed test provider. Most likely I do not a problem but I will keep my eye on it. I just want to be sure I get what I am paying for. Thanks again.
  19. My internet provider is Spectrum and the program I have is supposed to give me a download speed of 15 mbps. I periodically take advantage of the speed tests provided by Spectrum. Curious how a speed test can vary when you do two in a row, one right after the other. Usually the first speed test will test lower and the one after will test higher. I seldom download files but when I do I would like to know it is at the download speed I am paying for. Anyone else, experience this?
  20. Attempting to add a "Recovery Software Program to my system and was hoping for suggestions or recommendations. As I wouldn't expect to use the software often I am looking for a free or very inexpensive program. I have looked at "Recuva" but it seems to be very difficult, at least to me, to find specific deleted files. Part of this problem is I have a one terabyte laptop and "Recuva" returns all files just not the deleted ones and I haven't figured out how to zero in on only the deleted files. I have no doubt there is a way I just haven't found it yet. Regardless, if any of our members knows of a simple to use, accurate program, I would very much appreciate their sharing the name and their experience with,the program. As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  21. Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it; I am currently using Efficient Sticky Notes, a basic program but it seems to fill my needs. I was just curious as to what others might be using. Again thanks...
  22. Any of our members using a post-it program; and if so, would you recommend it to other members? As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  23. Curious as to what App Manager, forum members are using. I currently use File Hippo, any other members use it? If so, are you scanning any area of your drive other than the default? My operating system is Windows 10 Home and my applications are in two areas, Program Files and Program Files (x86). I was wondering if anyone using File Hippo was scanning the entire drive and if so how time consuming it was. I don't have much experience with App Managers so would appreciate your input. As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John
  24. -pops- I was using the free Grammarly Firefox browser extension; and I was only using it for Facebook comments simply because one other member is a retired English teacher who has nothing better to do but find fault with other members grammar and spelling. Regardless I am now using Language Tool which has proven to be satisfactory. Grammarly support may very well have been after me to upgrade to the paid version but why anyone would pay for a program when the free version didn't work is beyond me. Take Care...
  25. Boris, I appreciate your reply. I don't believe After the Deadline is compatible with Firestone Quantum. -pops-, Thank you for your reply. Grammarly is working just fine on my desktop computer, its operating system is Windows XP Pro, it is acting up on my laptop which has Windows 10 Home. Gandalph, Thanks. And while I agree with your observation I am coming to the conclusion that my problem is due to the different operating systems. Which may explain the lack of support from Grammarly. John
