  • Edge does a “pretty paste”

    Posted on December 1st, 2020 at 23:13 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So in a recent update of Edge it now does what I call a “pretty paste”.  Rather than putting in the raw url, it “copies a URL from the address bar and paste it, Edge will put the URL in an HREF with the title making it look pretty and nice when sharing.”

    Go into settings, then to share, copy and paste and you can edit it to the way you want if you have applications that don’t like that setting

  • December 2020 Office non-Security Updates have been released

    Posted on December 1st, 2020 at 14:19 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The December 2020 Office non-Security updates have been released Tuesday, December 1, 2020. They are not included in the DEFCON-4 approval for the November 2020 patches. Unless you have a specific need to install them, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) approves them and any problems have been reported.

    Remember, Susan’s patching sequence and recommendations are based on a business environment that has IT support and may have time constraints on the updating process. Consumer patching should be more cautious due to limited technical and mechanical resources. The latter is the reason for the AskWoody DEFCON system.
