  1. Past hour
  2. I have a Windows 8.1 laptop with Core i3 6100U laptop with 8 gb of ram and a good SSD and May Update works like crap on it with latest drivers. Windows 8.1 is twice as fast if not more. I've dealt with computers with more than a decade and on my rig , 8.1 is a champion. By far.
  3. Today
  4. locks you in a room with someone who thinks the last good version was Sims 2 world is more peaceful
  5. GOG is still > all others, but I'm skeptical of any attempt to become an all-in-one hub. Nobody ever pulls this off, and there's no reason to think it's gotten easier.
  6. For me it's a random itch I'll get to play it a bunch, then never touch it again until the next itch. It's not exactly an exciting game. But what's funny is how it could more accurately be called a "role playing game" than almost any other game that is. In many ways, it gives people 95% of what they lament is missing from mainstream RPGs. Especially with Sims 3, which had labyrinths, combat, criminal paths, etc. But RPGers don't necessarily like it all that much.
  7. the amount of bloat in windows 10 is pretty annoying.
  8. Pretend it's a launcher. Nobody griped about games in the 90s that started with a little window you had to click the 'Play' button on.
  9. Sims 4 is good enough, except for the fact that you have to throw hundreds of more dollars at DLCs to get all the content Until Sims 5 comes out, then you have to buy the DLCs all over again! It does have some good new things; though I feel they missed a lot of opportunities where they could have improved some core aspects of the game from Sims 3 to make it more solid and have the base game have a longer market life. The irony is that people were asking for Sims 5 less than a year after Sims 4 came out. As if they'd be cool spending the same amount of money at the same frequency anyway as long as they just called it a new game.
  10. Same for me. When clicking the bundled link, it drives me to a page stating a USB flash drive is inserted though none actually is! Arggg... The solution in the comment above seems to work for me. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\BattlEye and remove the folder. It is my work machine, I don't have this thing installed. Maybe another application causes the issue. As you said, the installer could just specify the problem in order for us to solve it...
  11. Google Chrome 74.0.3729.169 (offline installer) by Razvan Serea The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer.

  12. This game is not available on macOS. Epic Games Store does support macOS, for other games that are available on that platform.
  13. Still cryting over GoT mate? Get over it, the show is over. Still? That was two days after the last episode aired, immediately after I watched it and the first comment I posted about it. Also, I'm not your mate, bro.
  14. I agree, in protest, I will not open Publisher for an entire year.
  15. Its actually not complete crap, just doesn't have a lot of (valid) use cases. It can't scale well at all, 5 or so concurrent users is about all you can have. For small things, Excel is easier and faster, but bigger things, Access limitations will probably hold you back too much. You can use Access as a front-end for an SQL Express server, but the level of effort there is well beyond what is reasonable for an MS Office application.
  16. What was the time line again with W10M/PC sms integration? Cortana could give you notifications of SMS's to your PC, then Messaging app was fully functional, then Cortana could send sms, then Messaging was dropped for Skype, then Skype was dropped, then Cortana stopped getting sms notifications, then Cortana could no longer send sms? That last piece was killed server side back in Feb(I went looking at some threads on it).
  17. Feel free to remove other apps too by default. Don't need the Xbox app for instance on work PCs... Hell, it kinda needs a rework to unless I'm in the minority of people who aren't a fan of it. I've used it only for 1 game and it struggled to do the basics.
  18. I like stuff like this; happy purchaser of DisplayFusion which helps me a lot already. Will look at checking this out when I get home, thanks! +1 for bringing it to Steam as well, since that'll be a quick way to add it at work where I might use the hell out of it.
  19. I wonder what about voice modem support? Had issues with it on my voice mail server. Ezvice couldn't detect a modem with voice support. After messing with it for 1 hour and having no luck I rolled back to 1809.
  20. Huh? Has the messaging app been able to sync with W10M since MS decided to move that to Skype? I only remember a month or two of Messaging app doing any syncing and that was years ago.
  21. Can't wait to hear all those people moaning that still using the Messages sync 20 times a day on their vibrant WinMobile10-relic
  22. I just came to the realization that with this build, the flash drive creation part of the Media Creation Tool is utterly pointless. You can't actually USE the resulting flash drive to upgrade a computer. Yeah, you can use it for a clean install, but otherwise what's the point? You can copy the contents to a folder and upgrade. But yeah, good point. Ironically, burning a DVD is actually preferable to making a flash drive for this build. Way to go BACKWARDS Microsoft!!!
  23. Stardock releases Groupy on Steam, brings browser-like Tabs for Windows apps by Steven Parker Today, Stardock released their popular utility app, Groupy, on Steam. Groupy brings browser-like tabs to your Windows applications - from Microsoft Office programs, all the way to Adobe Photoshop or Premiere, and more. Groupy lets Windows users group their desktop windows together in tabbed groups as easily as browsers group websites together. Groupy takes programs, web browsers, File Explorer windows, and much more, and puts them into tabbed groups right on the Windows desktop. Just like modern web browsers group websites together, users can do that with all of the apps on their desktops, making for a cleaner and more efficient experience. "Windows users get the experience they’ve been waiting for with Groupy," said Angela Marshall, General Manager of Stardock Software. "Users have become accustomed to organizing their browsing experience with tabs, so it makes sense to bring this functionality to the rest of Microsoft Windows." Groupy works on Windows 10, 8, and 7. Once installed, creating groups with the app is simple: users can drag a window to another window, where they will combine into a single window, with tabs showing in the title bar. To ungroup, users simply drag the tab off the group. Create saved groups of apps and sort tabs by task or function easily. For example, open multiple web browsers, all in one set of tabs, or Office applications like Excel and Word, all in a single, easy-to-use window. Once a group is created, quickly switch between different windows using a hotkey or clicking on the tab. Groupy can automatically add launched programs into an existing tab group. Groupy is the feature that’s been lacking in the Windows experience. Groupy is available for $4.99 on Steam. Disclaimer: Neowin's relationship to Stardock
