Topic Wiki

I figured that even this thread can have a wiki.
If your computer or phone is giving you issues:

• Please read this before posting: 4 Reasons Why IT People Ignore Your Requests for Help
• Restart the computer. Hopefully this will take care of any issues
• If your problem has not yet been solved, try to Google it. There may be a very simple solution
• On a Windows computer, a system restore may do the trick.
(This is a work in progress, please feel free to add whatever you may feel is helpful)


Please post whether or not the problem was fixed

Trying to convert a QBO file to desktop.. it is automatically saving it here C:\Users\CBC\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Virtualized\C\Users\CBC\Desktop\qb file

How do I get it to save on my actual machine somewhere that it can be found and used? Also, how can I get it out of this file location and copy to desktop?
If you paste that directory location up until the last \ it doesn’t take you there?

It takes me there. But I can't copy the files out of there...
QB desktop needs access to the files also.. can't access or find them.

I googled extensively. - it actually took me some time to figure out that it actually was in a virtual folder.
But even then,for some reason I couldn't find a way to bypass it...
It's weird because I knew that it was just a security feature.. just not how to shut it.
I think I was more focused on things like this link. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/temporary-internet-files-folder-location

I was always in search of a free tool to convert JPEG to PDF https://onlineconvertfree.com/convert-format/jpeg-to-pdf/ . Tried many but Online Free Converter  is the best tool. It converts the files in a matter of seconds and supports various file formats. The best thing it is online and no need to download .

Why would this be better than the dozens of other similar products available online?  8) 8) 8)

I'm helping a friend who uses Yahoo mail. I don't know if it makes a difference but they have a .ca address. About a quarter of the screen on the right side is blank. You can click on an hour to push that pane over, but it re-emerges after 2 seconds. I have the impression that there usually are advertisements there and maybe it's being blocked due to an adblocker extension. Any Yahoo mail users no how to get rid of this?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
