      Starting with Windows 95 I changed the “My Computer” to just “Computer”, and “Windows Explorer” to “File Explorer”.  I’ve done this on every computer running Windows up to the present (Win 7).

      Wow, they really made a vast improvement in Windows Defender if it is now capable of Defending Microsoft!  Sorry geekdom, but I couldn’t resist the temptation.      🙂

      Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you recognize a mistake as soon as you make it again.
