Google Chrome with Windows 10

  • by
Is it just me? Or is Google Chrome is not suitable for Windows 10?
Or is it Microsoft’s Edge (the new browser for Windows 10 that replaced Internet Explorer) cannot coexist with Chrome? That what I’ve been experiencing lately.
I usually used both Internet Explorer and Chrome while doing my work or just surfing the net with my PC. Some of our in-house applications requires Internet Explorer to run. And sometimes when printing a webpage, IE and Edge gives a correct page margin when printing. So you will not have a blank page with just a header and a footer.
Recently, my PC tends to hung, especially when I rapidly switch between opened apps. Well, just now, it happens again. I was using my Chrome while Edge is running at the background. Suddenly, it froze..!! I still can move my mouse and open a program. But I can’t see the opened window. I can only see the frozen chrome page. Can’t click anywhere. Can’t scroll. Also, can’t even click the start button..!!
While I was frustrated..? Well, I was uploading my daughter’s  homework’s website, and it was almost done when everything froze.
Managed to keep my coolness, I’ve tried a few things. Then tried hover the mouse to the opened app’s icons on the taskbar and close it. IT WORKS..!! So, I’ve closed everything except chrome since I know that the uploads hasn’t finished yet. When I closed Edge, everything goes back to normal..!!

Windows 10 Experience

  • by

It has been about one week since I’ve upgraded my Dell Latitude E6430s from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Professional. You can read on my previous post on Windows 10 installation here and first look on what Windows 10 has to offer here.

Well, since it is still new in the market (or web, which you can download for FREE), there are still some, what I would say, hick ups (or bug) somewhere. Yet, it depends on which hardware that you installed it to.

Hands-on with Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64 bit

  • by
Welcome back guys. After we did the installation on Windows 10 Professional 64-bit, now is the time to see what Microsoft has installed for us in their latest version of windows.
If you missed my post on the Windows 10 installation, you can have a look at it by clicking here. The installation was a direct upgrade from Windows 7. So, all my files and settings are intact, plus few other eye candies.
As you can see from the screenshot that I’ve attached in this post and from other previous Windows 10 related post, the interface has been changed a bit.
Starting from Windows 95, microsoft has introduced the START button where all the magic happens. Search for files or run a program, all starts with the START button, on the task bar at the bottom of the screen. This small little button has helped a lot of user do things and they are really “attached” to it. It continues in Windows 98 and up until Windows 7. 
Then comes Windows 8, where the “START” was totally “reformatted”. Logging in to Windows and you will see all the START screem with icons fill up the screen. Provided that you have a touch screen monitor, this format of START screen is in your advantage. Since people are so used to smartphones and tablets, that’s why microsoft create this sort of START screen. Well, lots of people like the changes. But then, many people do hate it. It’s a new learning curve for them. They cannot find what they are looking for. All the installed apps are “hidden” somewhere.
