"Back up your data" is probably second only to "eat your vegetables" as good advice that's often ignored. But you ignore it at your peril -- hard drives have grown vastly more reliable, but they can still fail

Get organised with Windows 98 toolbars

In case you haven't noticed, Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 4 add tonnes of new toolbars to the screen. Though these toolbars represent potential time savers (or at least click savers), how do you cope with the visual noise they add?

Working with two soundcards

I would like to know whether it is possible to have two soundcards in one computer and set them up so that one is used for playback and one for recording

Clean up scratched CDs

Do you know of any software that will recover as much data as possible from a severely scratched CD-ROM? Yes! There is a way......

Check mail sans downloads

Don't you hate it when you dial your Internet service provider to skim your e-mail and end up downloading megabytes of junk mail?

Write your own CDs

I am currently interested in buying a CD-Writer. I understand that CD-RW discs are rewritable but can only be played in the writer's drive, whereas a CD-R disc can be written to once but can be played in most CD-players (eg the car). Can you give me ...

Winformation at your fingertips

Before Windows 98, finding information about your PC's resources and configuration was quite a chore. In Win 98, there's Microsoft System Information (MSInfo). This handy tool should be your first stop in any troubleshooting investigation

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more?

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
