  1. Thanks SO much, Cyn, for this little tip on getting those scroll bars to appear. I didn’t know this could be done! Or was so badly needed and easily fixed! I always open one of your emails, never know what I’m going to find!

  2. Thanks for that info, Cyn. I’m saving that in case I find myself needing a form. Tell me now, who do you recommend for subscribing to a music service? Amazon? That’s my favorite go-to place but I might be missing out on another just as good and maybe cheaper.

  3. I don’t use any password storage service such as Bitwarden. I have all of them in an alphabetical booklet totaling some 100 to 150 different passwords. I keep it near my computer, which I know is not smart. Any suggestions for password storage, other than a “cloud vault” ? ( I am old, and technically challenged)

  4. Cyn: If a computer won’t support upgrade to win 11 Could you change the CPU chip or will it require a newer model more powerful system?

  5. I’ve been meaning to respond for a while: I really like your new format and fonts, Cyn. That is a good choice; it makes me think straightforward, down-to-business but not mired in the business. You do good work! John

  6. Is it 2021 or 2011? There’s a typo in one place or the other. And since chip manufacturers have issued security updates to resolve the flaw, would that not be included in the regular security updates sent to devices?

  7. I didn’t know you could do this. I do a lot of word documents with pictures in the back ground. I always put the picture in PhotoShop and reduce the transparency to around 15 to 20 percent and then put it in my Word document and go to Picture Format > Text Wrap and set it to ‘Behind text’ where I can adjust the size and place it exactly where I want it. Thanks for the info on another way to do it.

  8. Thank you for NOT answering the question. I STILL need to Defrag. Next time just answer the damned question.

    1. Defragging a chromebook hard drive won’t do you any good. That’s not how they are designed. What’s the issue you’re experiencing that makes you think it needs a defrag?

  9. Kudos for realizing that keeping a notebook full of passwords is a single point of failure – if it’s lost, destroyed or stolen, you would have to start everything over. While the password card is an option, it’s still a piece of paper that must be safeguarded.

    My Darling Bride and I have used http://www.LastPass.com for years: it’s an online “vault” in which we can keep all our usernames, passwords, payment cards and other secure items like notes. It can generate, and store, unique and complex passwords for every site and it’s all accessible via a single master password that you create.

    As long as you keep your master password secure, all your passwords are safely stored in the cloud and can be accessed from any computer, phone, tablet, etc. We can set up our own vaults, and we also share a common vault for the items we both use.
