    Not Thrilled Google is phasing out the green lock icon


    https://www.indiatoday.in/technology...385-2018-05-18

    Google will release version 68 of Chrome in July this year following which Chrome will mark all sites running on HTTP encryption as "not secure" in the address bar. Also, the HTTP sites accessed in the Incognito mode will continue showing the "not secure" label.

    The company will eventually roll out Chrome version 69 in September this year and Chrome will show a grey lock in the Omnibar instead of a green "secure" label and lock for the website supporting its HTTPS encryption. In time, the company will completely remove the security indicators from Chrome. "Users should expect that the web is safe by default, and they'll be warned when there's an issue. Since we'll soon start marking all HTTP pages as "not secure", we'll step towards removing Chrome's positive security indicators so that the default unmarked state is secure," Emily Schechter, Project Manager, Chrome Security wrote in a blog.

    I know that this is relatively old news but nobody likes change : ) Is this a big nothing and not to get my thrusters in a bunch? I do like looking at that green lock icon though. Any Chrome addons that will restore the green lock or should I just set it and forget it. On another note I use Incognito mode whenever I use a public computer and according to the blurb above Incognito mode never did show the green lock icon. Well, that's disturbing.

    green screens

    Since I upgraded to windows 10. I'm getting green screens on IE, Firefox, Microsoft edge videos and on some movie apps. But not on Google Chrome.I have tried all the community step by step suggestive, instructions. But the problem is still there. I understood
    that Microsoft is having some issues with windows 10. Is that a fact? .

    Windows 10 Lock Icon


    I am having issues being able to paste files into a folder that has a lock icon on it. I am not the owner of the folder, my boss is. I am using Windows Pro 10 and my boss is using Windows 8.1. I can open files contained within the folder but cannot paste files into the folder. I have opened properties and gone to the security tab and I am listed within the Group or user names list and my permissions are all at allow. Any suggestions?

    Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    • Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    • Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    • Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    • Select add someone else on this PC.
    • Enter a user name and hit next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
