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

Caps Lock talks back

I'm a two-finger typist, and I often hit the <Caps Lock> key by mistake. Since my Toshiba 405 CS laptop doesn't have a visual Caps Lock indicator, I'd like to get some kind of audible warning when I hit that key. How do I give my computer a noisy <Ca...

Multiple browser configurations

I want to set up an Internet browser for use via my standard ISP. I also want to be able to dial into my office intranet. Currently, I have to change my browser configuration in order to use the relevant proxy etc. Is there any way to configure a bro...

Browser caching explained

Caches are everywhere -- on your motherboard, on your processor, on your hard drive -- but unless you're an avid reader of manuals and online help files you might not be sure what they are.

The limitations of Sound Recorder

Sound Recorder only seems to record for 60 seconds, and I see no way to make it work for a longer period. Do I need to install extra software/hardware in order to record tunes of a decent length?

Why use FAT32?

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? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
