    LANGALIST By Fred Langa Windows 10’s dialogs are sometimes laid out in funky ways and can lack headings and other visual cues to help you quickly loca

      Richard Corbin (unhappy about Microsoft Office “helpfully” resetting his carefully set default apps to their product): I feel your pain. This is a longstanding gripe of mine as well. I also deal with it frequently in photo and audio processing apps.

      And Fred, you’re right as well, that Defender dialog window is poorly designed and contrary to the way other security apps report results of checking one file.

      I followed Langa’s example to scan one file with Microsoft Defender and this is the dialog box I got. Windows-Defender-single-file-scan

      There is nothing that shows up like Langa’s Figure 2, which shows the results of a custom scan. Instead, Scan Options shows the results of a quick scan it did about two hours ago (EST).

      What could be the problem?

      I am Windows 10/Pro. I am the administrator and I DO have a few GP settings, e.g. #2=notify (download/install) and TRV=Windows 10, 21H1, following PKCano’s AKB 2000016

      “It will output 3.33 amps at a maximum of 19.5 volts, 65 watts total output.”

      May I amend that? It might be better to say “It will output 19.5 volts at a maximum of 3.33 amps, 65 watts total output.

      The adapter (like most power supplies) is more-or-less a voltage source. In this case it will try to maintain approximately 19 volts DC (the exact value does not matter since the charging circuit inside the laptop will reduce it to what is best for its own battery). It can do so up to a maximum of 3.33 amps, after which we can expect the voltage to sag, the adapter to overheat, or a fuse to blow — whichever comes first.

      That is, it will output 3.33 amps only when that is what is needed for the battery’s state of charge. It would, however, continue to deliver about 19 volts even if unplugged from the laptop.

      In fact that adapter could be replaced by any 19 VDC supply (and matching connector) as long as it could deliver 3 amps or more, since the charger in the laptop will only draw whatever fraction of that is needed.

      After years and years of laptops, laptop adapters (aka chargers) and batteries, I can only recommend brand name replacement adapters and batteries.  I can tell stories about a 3rd party “battery: that would not charge because there was no battery inside the plastic housing or 3rd party adapters that fried laptop motherboards, but I won’t.  And these aren’t just stories.  They are real, because I was there to see the results.

      Choose to do otherwise?  I wish you all the best of luck.
