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

I am cleaning up my desktop and see a file titled "debug" and am not sure when it appeared. What does this mean? Any reason to just delete it?

Seems like it's there since March. You can right click the file, click properties and the date modified will tell you the last time the file was changed.

Can't figure out how to do that.
Search for device manager. Tell me what it says under "display adapters"

You should also be able to get the correct/updated/reinstall Display Drivers from your PC manufacturer's website.

Thanks.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I use the iPhone voice memo app to record certain meetings but have had the recording stop in the middle when a phone call comes in. This has happened even though the phone was set to silent and do-not-disturb. Is there any way to prevent this? Thanks.

Make sure DoNotDisturb is set to Silence: Always. (i.e. not "when screen is locked")

@Euclid Thanks but I just check and it was set to "always"...?

@Thingywingy try putting DND to manual, make sure you have allow calls set to none.
If that doesn't work, then what happens when recording is off do calls come in?

Does anyone know of a good option for buying Parallels? Someone mentioned to me that he bought it recently with a student discount for around $40 though I can't find that option. On their website they sell it for $80 and it's only a 1-yr subscription. TIA

Google brings up the student price. $40 a year. Don’t know what you need to verify eligibility.

https://www.parallels.com/landingpage/pd/education/

Did you check eBay? Might be worth trying it out for a few dollars (or dispute / refund if doesn’t work).

Thx. This option was not available a few days ago. Appreciate the help
