      Thanks Elly.  I’ll give it a try.

      Thanks for the input and the link.  I suspect I’ll pass on it, however, as I would be fearful of an older version having security issues.  Printing to a pdf file is not an issue as I have a number of options for that including, “Microsoft Print to PDF.”  I have been enjoying Foxit Reader for free for a number of years, so I think I’ll try their paid version.  There’s a free trial so I can see if it does what I need it to do–add additional scanned pages to an existing file.

      Indeed that works quite nicely.  A great solution if the fundamental issue had never been resolved,  Now that everything is normal, I’m just a mouse click away.

      Thanks Paul.  Can you tell me why.  My intentions would be to have the form just load without sending, look things over for accuracy, then click submit.  Is something else going on in the background that makes that a bad idea?

    • in reply to: KeePass Opens Firefox Browser #2258960

      Thanks to all who weighed in.  I went into settings and changed the items that weren’t set to Edge.  Still no luck.  I decided to uninstall Firefox.  That gave me the answer.  The webpages still attempted to open with Firefox, and the error message said that KeeForm couldn’t access Firefox.  I had installed KeeForm’s program in an attempt to improve KeePass’ form filling process.  I then installed the KeeForm plugins for both Firefox & Edge.  Apparently it prefers Firefox.  Uninstalling KeeForm has returned the system to normal.

      That still leaves me with what I feel is a cumbersome process for buying stuff with a credit card.  Other password managers I have used (Roboform & Lastpass)  have done a nice job with this, looking for the specific information as indicated by the form field and entering accordingly.  With KeePass, I have have to either drag & drop individual fields or perform autotype for individual fields.  I was hoping Keeform would accomplish this seamlessly.  In all other things, I really like Keepass.  Some things like sequential login pages were difficult for me using Roboform.  I also didn’t like it it when there “for life” program proved otherwise.  I also really like having my database sitting on my computer rather than in the cloud somewhere.  I also use Keepass for keeping various notes that I want to be very secure. If anyone has found a way to make KeePass automatically fill out webforms, I’d appreciate it.  Thanks.

    • in reply to: Quicken and Win 10 Pro 64 Bit V 1909 #2255901

      I have been using Quicken for years.  Periodically I have researched alternative financial tracking software, but nothing seems to offer anything close to what Quicken does.

      I don’t know if this matters or not, but I keep all of my Quicken data files in a VeraCrypt file container.  I suspect that might isolate them somewhat, as most of the time these files are not loaded.  I have a WIN 10 Pro machine, with the March 1909 updates installed.  I am using both WD and Malwarebytes Premium (sorry Susan) for malware protection. My Quicken version is 2020 R 2617.  I have not experienced the misfortune you have had.

      My only real complaint is periodically, one of about 10 different accounts I have set up for transaction download fails to do so.  Sometimes the error fixes itself in a day or two.  More frequently, I need to disconnect the account and then set it up again.  The issue here is frequently, the software will then download 6 months worth of transactions that have already been entered into the register.  It takes a while to delete them all.  Annoying.

    • in reply to: USB 3.1 Gen 2 #2242365

      I now know that my next external drive purchase will be a Gen 2 10 Gbps device along with a proper cable.  In retrospect, I was not aware of the existence of a TB3 port.  Had I been so, I would have no doubt selected differently.  I did a fair amount of research, and the MSI Z-390A board seemed to be highly regarded for the price I was willing to pay.  As this is a new build, I  am stuck with whatever limitations it has.  Overall I am very pleased with it as the system is both fast and quiet.

      I am still in the dark as to how a 20 Gbps connection differs from a 10 Gbps connection.  Are the ports physically different, have additional circuitry, or some such thing?  Thanks for all who have weighed in.

    • in reply to: USB 3.1 Gen 2 #2242161

      Let me ask this a different way.  If I bought a 20 Gbps device and the proper cable, would I get said transfer speed on the system I have described, or would I only get 10?  If so, is it possible to get 20 using some other means.  For example some kind of an express card, or as previously mentioned, a firmware upgrade out of the kindness of MSI’s collective heart?  According to the board’s spec sheet, two connections are labeled 3.1 Gen 2 Superspeed 10 Gbps.  Just trying to understand how this stuff works.  Thanks guys.

      I have been using USB external hard drives for data backup.  I’m just looking for the speediest way to run those backups.  The devices I currently have are both USB 3.1 Gen 1.  My next purchase would best seem to be a Gen 2 capable device.  I’m presuming a 20 Gbps device would cost more than a 10 Gbps device.  My system seems currently capable of accommodating 10, but I don’t know about 20.  If 20 is unobtainable, there would be no sense in buying such a device; my next purchase would be a 10.  My BIOS comment was that it’s my understanding that if the 10 & 20 receptacles are the same, then perhaps the system could be upgraded to 20 via a BIOS update, should MSI choose to offer it.  Then again, if as you say Paul, the speed is determined by the device itself, maybe a 20 device would work right now.  That’s what I’m trying to wrap my arms around.  Thanks.

      Another question if you please.  My board is an MSI Z390-A Pro.  The manual labels the  relevant ports as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (Superspeed 10 Gbps).  Would it be fruitless to pick up a 2 x 2 device (20 Gbps), or would perhaps a BIOS update yield the greater transfer speed?

      Thanks guys.  I haven’t gotten around to purchasing anything yet, but when I pick up my next storage device, I’ll also buy a gen 2 cable.

      Hello All –

      I hadn’t checked in awhile, but either the Jan, Feb, or Mar Windows fixed the problem.  I can once again assign tags to my video files.  Thank you Microsoft.

      I’ll be darned.  I turned IE 11 back on in Control Panel’s “Turn Windows Features On or Off” and the links are now working.  This seems very strange.  I have IE turned off on my main computer as well, and said links are not affected on it.  Both have WIN 10 Pro, 1909 with March updates.

      In regard to not supposed to shut IE off, I was under the impression that either Fred, Woody, or Susan had recommended this because of IE being so full of security holes, and that even if not used, an unpatched IE made the computer vulnerable.

      At any rate, I guess the problem is solved.  Thanks to all who weighed in.  It’s greatly appreciated as always.

      Got around to installing the recommended registry entries, all of which said were successfully installed.  It still doesn’t work.  The only thing I haven’t done yet is turn on Internet Explorer and fiddle with its recommendations.  I have never used IE on this computer.  I turned it off the day windows was installed and used Edge exclusively until I installed Firefox a month or so ago. To this point I have never uninstalled any browsers and have alternately selected Edge & Firefox as defaults in trying to figure this out.  I really don’t know when this problem started as I rarely work with Office documents on this computer, and they are the only ones that are affected.  I can save the troublesome file as a pdf, and the links work perfectly.  What’s left to try?

      I’ve changed browsers–no luck.  The Bible site is just that.  There’s no account, username, or password.  I went into the Group Policy Editor and changed all settings to not configured and rebooted.  Problem still exists.  I also thought it might be something with the synch to Google Drive, so I took the file directly from my desktop’s storage, copied to a flash drive, and put it on my laptop.  Still no workie.  I haven’t tried those registry keys yet.  Kind of busy right now, but I’ll try that next week.  Thanks for all the input.
