Update the drivers use the Windows graphics settings
It was on the latest drivers. I restarted and it's working so far.

Is Nvidia gaming driver more stable then the work one?

On the contrary I would assume the work driver should be focused on reliability vs the gaming a bit more performance but less stable.

A game needs more computing continuously for all the rendering all the time, no?

The difference is primarily size, the gaming includes extra features and optimization for AAA games. Functionality wise there shouldn't be a difference although I have been told by nvidea to use the gaming driver.

What does this symbol on the icon mean?
Also how do I know if a file is stored on my computer and not on cloud?

I installed a Hebrew font onto my Windows 11 computer to be used as the display font for Bar Ilan Responsa Project (since I like this font).
It's a True Type font file - .ttf
However, when using Bar Ilan this font shows as symbols not Hebrew letters.
I did not have this issue with my Windows 10, Vista & XP systems.
Any help would be appreciated.

The Bar Ilan program gets upgraded every year, so it's not currently an older program.
Either way, we tried it & it didn't help.

This solved the issue.

Anyone know of any deals on malwarebytes premium? Thanks.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Is there a way for me to copy the software from one MP3 player and flash it onto another?

I've bought a few Samvix Dynamite Kosher MP3 players over the last two years for about $60 or $70 a piece. I like them a lot, but with the intense usage my kids put them through, they usually break after just a few months. (Due to overuse or misuse.) I found an identical device that does not contain Kosher software (it has a radio and picture abilities) for $25 and I was wondering if I can clone the Kosher software off the Samvix and 'kosherfy' the other device.

Any insights?

(Not-as-good alternate would be to just break the FM receiver, but not sure exactly how to find that on the circuit board...)

In a way this is different than music where I would have no issues copying it if I already bought it.

If you still have the broken one maybe you can just take it apart and transfer the internals.
