  2. It is separate from the kernel. ugh that shouldn't of said kernel... that should of said base OS... still a bit confusing... in the old days the OS booted then launched the shell, thought it was still basically doing that today with explorer.exe Yeah unsure—I’m guessing they are just making it more modular so it can be installed as a package? That’s what I understood anyway, but I didn’t read much about it past here. Windows NT began as a VERY modular OS - did we forget that it had multiple subsystems by default? The x86 version included POSIX and OS/2 (character mode) modules until NT4 dropped both (due to lack of demand from users) - in fact, due to the addition of ATAPI/IDE drive support, NT 3.51 could run on the same hardware that Windows 9x could - literally. (The only flaw that NT 3.x/4 had - compared to 9x - was DirectX support - this was something that Windows 2000 would fix.) Please make a less relevant post. Oh wait, you did. adrynalyne - My point was that earlier in its life, Windows (and especially NT) was very modular - more so than it is even now. We all know what happened (and it has been happening with every OS on the planet - Linux distributions, Android, macOS, even iOS) - feature creep. It's not even CLOSE to being unique to Windows (which is why I wish folks would stop acting like it is). And my point is that it is not relevant to what I was discussing. It seems pretty relevant to me; you were talking about the shell being separate which is just part of how Windows used to be much more modular than it is today. In any case I find these posts very interesting as I'm sure others do. Ok—I wasn’t talking about the modularity of Windows NT, and I already said the shell was separate and they were making it into a separate package. Why do I need someone talking about the past about the modularity of Windows NT when it has nothing do with how the shell is transforming now? It’s just a bunch of wasted text that brings nothing to the table, especially in response to me. OS history is fine but start another thread for it. That I had to spell this out seems unnecessary.
  3. Does the ‘white box’ look something like this?
  4. Sometimes the card won't balance the power draw from the PCIe bus with the cables to the power supply properly. You should check the manufacturers site for a firmware update (well you should have done that anyways...) Also sometimes due to slight misalignment the metal support where you screw it down prevents the card from fully seating in the socket. Any further thoughts would require full specs on the computer you got it working in so any difference might stand out...

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    I heard very good thing about MusicBee but i don't know if it does want you want. I know you used to be able to import wmp playlist with it. When importing your playlist you should work on a copy of it if possible and be sure the auto-organizer function of the new software is turned off.
  6. yes this would be done with vlans..

    Try Winamp 😉
  9. Only USB-C ? Not the clamshell I'm looking for...
  10. I wish we could still choose what shell we wanted to run. I remember during Windows 95 setup it actually asked you if you wanted to use the new Explorer shell or the Windows 3.1 Program Manager. Personally I would love to still be able to use the Windows 2000 shell, that was probably the last one I really liked.

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    After playing with VLC and iTunes I found both do not support Windows Media Player playlist files. Windows Groove does so I am going to look into that. If anyone has any further suggestions please let me know

  13. I live in Canada, and yea price of videogames here is ridiculous, definitely turns you off of buying them. As for the switch.. I have one and it stays in it's dock 99.9% of the time so never had a screen size issue (looks great on my 55").

    The Big Wrestling Thread!

    Here's a panel from the Niagara Falls CC with Sgt. Slaughter, the Killer Bees Mr. Wonderful and Animal (note I haven't watched it so I don't know if its SFW or not, it probably is though):

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    last I checked it "does" but it's clunky and only doable through the VLC file menu; not through explorer/context menus

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    Well I played with it for a long time and can't see how.

    yea, you can queue ... but I'm not really sure I would recommend iTunes. I personally like it (just because I've used it forever) ... I'm sure someone can give a better recommendation though. Also...you sure VLC doesn't allow you queue?

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    Foobar2000 or neowin member developed Dopamine should work well as a WMP replacement I'm not sure if Dopamine currently supports queuing through the context menu but I'm sure @Raphaël G. would be happy to develop it in if requested
  20. I think it is mis-priced but soldered ram shouldn’t have any bearing on it. Not enough ram does though.

    Will iTunes let me right click and play or en queue? I need this functionality. VLC does not.

    Missing Windows Media Player context menus

    Unfortunately this is really beyond my "real world experience" ... I use iTunes for all my music. I believe VLC has everything that you need ... but others may give better recommendations.

    I also need a player that will let me select several MP3's and queue them

    Get it on the internet. I will take it from them for you.
  25. Hey I wondered if anyone knew of a way to easily change Start Menu tile icons and make the tile colour transparent? I bought EdgeTile Creators from the Microsoft Store, but despite having a transparency feature in the colour picker, it's not working Also, I don't get why the user doesn't have complete control over tile size - for example I'd love to have the Photos tile much larger. Are there any apps that tweak this? Really wish Microsoft would invest some resource in developing the Start Menu and live tiles some more - it's practically abandoned.

    PCI-SIG announces final PCI Express 5.0 specification

    When POWER9 was first announced/released, PCIe 3.1 was ratified and 4.0 work was still ongoing. Only the latest POWER9's have PCIe 4.0 support. IBM already shared POWER10 being 2020 release, so that'll probably be the first commercial products to support PCIe 5.0, though. Yeah, but even so, IBM has beaten AMD to the punch, since they already have products you can buy now (and they were announced before AMD's announcements), whereas AMD has only just showcased them.
