  1. Replicate Win7 behavior for Recent Documents?


    I'm trying to figure out if there's any way to get back to the Window 7/WinXP behavior of Recent Documents on the Start menu. I liked being able to click the Start button, then just choose from a list of the most recent files from a jump list. I work with a number of different file formats throughout the day, saving them in different client folders. I understand that Microsoft has moved towards using the Recent Items view in a File Explorer window, but that means I always need to open yet another window, double-click the file I want, and close it when I'm done. Is there any way to just get it back to a jump list?

    :)

    Karens Replicator 3.6.9 not working after Win 10 updated 16/4/17

    Glad to see that this is not a hardware problem. Perhaps caused by incompatibility between Replicator and a recent Win10 update?

    On Win7, Replicator continues to work properly. However on Win10 it fails to copy files from the root directory of the source folder, and deletes those files from the destination folder. Not good!

    Anyone else having the same issue? I don't want to give up Replicator after all these years, but need to get past this problem.

  3. How to Prevent IE from Automatically Logging In to Office 365

    Thx. Tried this. No difference. This behavior only on IE11, not on other browsers. Only in Win10, not on Win7. Started recently, but nothing changed on my end.
