So I simply clicked the link And it brought me to this web page - https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001307.htm I scrolled down to the linux part and did what it suggested.

Thanks again, ComputerHope!. (Earlynerd)

I'm retired from a career in IT, so I'm familiar with many IT-related acronyms as well as much of the information presented in this piece and all of your other explanations. (I hope I didn't lose you in that long sentence.) I needed a web-related error message explained. I used DuckDuckGo and here I am. I got the information I needed. It was clearly the best explanation of web stuff that I have ever received. I roamed around landing on several more pages. Really good stuff! I'm going to save your url for future reference, and I will attempt to get through to my grandson in college. He is not that open to learning anything from a pre-boomer. He became a genius, not to mention The World's Greatness Authority..., the moment he received his college acceptance letters. But I digress. Take comfort in the fact that I will not copy this and paste it in your other pages. Happy Thanksgiving, if you are in or from the U.S.A. Best wishes to all. This is a great site! Jan. (Jancrawf)

I have been unable to resize the Dashlane application (password manager) for months, since a major version release; it does not respond to the mouse to resize at the edge or top/bottom of the window. I searched Google using the following string: "dashlane can't resize application window" A link to your article was the first under the [People also ask] section. This is a simple and elegant solution that took me way back to early Windows days. Thanks for the reminder. I am going to add an FAQ to Dashlane's user forum and link to this article. Thank you. (Gary)

Very good, already recommended your site to a friend, thanks. (Victor)

You have a "super-great" site. There are still many items I don't know about computing even though I've been at it since Atari, IBM compatibles, DOS, Windows 3 (I believe it was) and now "7" (for me). You fill the gaps, THANK YOU! (John S.)

I had a very wonderful experience thumbs up to you guys, thank you so much. (OLUEBUBE)

I haven't read all of the information in Computer Hope but, what I have read makes me feel 60 years younger. My first job as a programmer was in 1964(65?) using Autocoder programming language on a IBM 1401. Then to NASA, real-time programming using Control Data Equipment. After leaving NASA contracted to build an real-time operating system for a computer with 16k of memory. Had to write all the integer and floating point math routines, since the computer came with no math chip (multiply, divide, add, subtract, exponential, log, anti-log, sq-route). All would be a challenge for programmers today. (Ed H.)

Consulted many different sites, but this was the only one that actually answered my question. The recommendation worked perfectly. Thank you. (Caroline)

Dude thanks for every drop of knowledge and also for properly guiding. (Akash)

It has been a wonderful experience to learn from your page..keep on helping. (Anonymous)

Today is the first day I found Computer Hope and I loved it. Really well designed landing page and my means of searching is at my fingertips. No avalanche of ADS. I liked the pictures that accompanied my query - great feature. I was looking for a computer dictionary and tested about 10 sites and I liked this the best so, I'm in! Thanks for your thoughtful design it is appreciated. (Dave)

Apparently, I had the idea of taking the battery out and keep it for a week to drain the electricity but didn't know holding down the power button for some times could easily drain the electricity in the PC. thanks much it's very simple. (Nana)

Thank you for your efforts making this the best source of computer information available. You have succeeded making it #1 for me. (Bob)

I am trying to teach myself Python and keep running into commands and terminology I need more information on. Your pages are excellent for filling in the missing gaps, quickly and efficiently. I take quick notes in my notebook and move on. This allows me to build an easy to use database for future reference. Glad you are here. To coin a phrase, "I'll be back." (Shoenig369)

Battery Icon was missing from Taskbar in Windows 10. Used Device Manager to disable and re-enable the two battery entries in Device Manager. Rebooted and battery icon was back. Easy Peasy. Thanks for your guide. (Anonymous)

Writing simply, yet effectively, is much harder than it may seem - A+ for this page. Yesterday, I spent over an hour on an issue. Today, your tip to purge Cloudflare cache solved everything in 30 seconds (and will likely continue to do so as this was a regular issue.) BIG THANKS. (Frank S)

There are multiple sites in the directory of my search results, but Computerhope's, although numbered further down the list, stood out among the other links as top attention grabber for the info I sought. Thank you. (Tim)

I am a Creative, So would classify myself as a User of Computers. That said as both Photographic// Moving Image and extremely passionate about technology my understanding and theory is at a very high standard. I understand in detail what the components of the device are doing and have reasonable level of knowledge with assembly of hardware etc. What is excellent about your website is that it gave me derailed expert guidance that I could easily understand and now put into practice. As a side note, because it's so useful I have Bookmarked your website in Favourites & to endorse what I have just said your website is at the top when I did a Google search and using the feature “Ask Siri” on my iOS device you ŵere one of the 3 suggestions it gave me to solve my problem.

Your posting offers me a great help in understanding the various Excel keyboard shortcuts. I am really grateful. (O. A.)

I greatly appreciate your help. I was lost in Web for just a very little problem: "select or remove a complete line in Microsoft Office Word short cut." It was easy to reach the site but anyway I will add this to my bookmarks. I hope I will be using this site regularly. (Abdullah)

It is not just information, but a tutorial in itself. It stands up tall to its name, HOPE. Thanks to all the hands who structured this site. (A. S.)

I came looking for a quick recall for the usage of a simple Linux/Unix command. Instead I learned many capabilities of that command with concise and elegant examples. Thanks for being so Awesome!. (Shan D Jay)

It took looking at several pages to find what I was looking for -- an actual person's name linked to the website Computer Hope. Came here looking for lists of Microsoft Office 2016 keyboard shortcuts for all of the programs in the suite. Thank you for all of your efforts, and for you generosity in sharing your knowledge!. (Visitor PM)

This is one of the easiest websites I have ever visited. Thank You!. (Debby)

Thank you for educating me on what I can do to enjoy the Internet. I really had know interest in using the internet, until I read the things I can look into. Very very interesting. (Anonymous)

I am a completely new computer user and your page was the simplest page to understand and have the information that I wanted without confusing me ever, thank you, Jacky Jackson. (Jacky Jackson)

Thanks, I thought it was something way more serious. Just needed this easy helpful tip. (Jenessy)

Great tips for navigating excel. (Elliott)

Thanks so much. Thought my laptop was toast after a couple lightning strikes. Followed your steps and it came back on. Thanks again. (Ken)

I have worked with computers for over twenty years, at first with only DOS and today mainly DOS (with Win XP) and often found 'error level' in batch files, but never knew what it meant! I simply ignored it. Now I understand it, it is so simple. Many thanks. (A.S.)

I like it. It's so simple to understand. I am a teacher at a small town in Ghana. So I am happy for this website. (R. A.)

How can I have been on the web for a quarter-century and yet never have stumbled across your site until today? What an amazing resource! Thank you for providing it :). (Jenny Howard)

Battery Icon on the task bar (Windows 10) reappeared after disabling and enabling 'steps' as advised above. Thank you so much. (Baw Raw)

Thanks found the solution easy and immediate. I like where you gave all possible problems where other help sites told to straight away uninstall and reinstall where my problem was much simpler. (J)

Thanks you for making the information we need to know more about simple and useful. God bless you. (Umar B.)

The best learning site on the Internet. (Anonymous)

I was able to fully understand each word. It was simple, to the point and easy to understand and remember. (Jessica)

I found a link to general troubleshooting after looking at some specific issues. I followed the sequential troubleshooting steps and liked that I could drill down to detail with links to separate troubleshooting of sub-systems like Device Manager and later CPU temperature. After resolving issues in a sub-system, I could go back to resume the general troubleshooting steps. I eventually got to the end where I concluded my Windows is [screwed up!], which, is kinda what I suspected from the beginning. But the whole process was edifying and I found resolution to some issues along the way, which informs me for the rebuild. Thank you, ComputerHope. (M. C.)

It solved my question about ln command so easy that I loved it :D. Thanks. (Rexxi)

Thank you guys, I have literally the same knowledge about computers of a granny and this really helped me with some troubles I had with my WiFi and spent all my morning trying to Fix by myself, sending love and support :)))) (Marisol G.)

Great, clear and helpful instructions. (Anonymous)

This was easy and simple to follow. Thank you so much. It helped me after I struggled for almost a month. (Etner)

I'm 69 years young and not an expert on computers. Your instructions were simple and very easy to understand. I was able to copy a video my son posted on Facebook on the very first attempt. Thank you for your easy to follow instructions. (Patrick)


I wasn't looking for anything but learned a lot. Incidentally, I loved the following: 'If the computer processor is getting too hot, it can cause the computer to freeze.' Beautiful! Cool down the processor too much and the computer may boil over! (A.S)

I found it by accident & am eternally glad I did. I am a senior with computer experience at work & always had an IT person to train me or help w/problems. The language was always a mystery. I am now learning to edit audio recordings & this site is the answer to my prayers. (Winnie)

I searched google for an answer on how to get the battery icon back but no other websites, even Microsoft, could help me figure it out. I did the method of disabling then enabling the drivers under device management and fixed it right away, no restart required. Thank you so much!!. (Olivia)

Simple question, simple answer. Thanks for making it easy!. (Jill)

If all the 'help' pages I need were as clear as this I could have enjoyed my PC rather than endured it!!. (Plod)

This page was really helpful, please keep up with thr good work. Especially because it is easy to understand even for those that are not computer geeks. Thanks. (Harriet)

I found this website while desperately searching for a solution to a problem with my HP computer(exe files won't open for one thing). I wanted to find a phone number for HP so I used DuckDuckGo to try and find one. Your website was on the 3rd page of search results. I noticed you are a free service so I came right here. I still can't believe you do all of this for free! What's the catch? After all, computer issues like those I have are never solved without someone, including HP, charging a fee. They want $39.95 to answer ONE question. A computer consultant near my home wants $190 to diagnose the problem. A supposed HP service center wants to do a recovery WITHOUT BACKING UP FILES! But he said it would only cost $74.95. Only $74.95 to wipe out everything in our computer! We have nearly 13,000 photos stored in Windows Photo Gallery. And I have some important documents (well, important to me). The "service center" employee told me he couldn't back up the files and photos. We would loose everything. I haven't yet looked at all the information you have available, but I'm sure I will find a better solution here. I'm off to check out your site now. If I don't find what I need I will let you know. The questions above about experience and finding what I'm looking for are just predictions since I haven't looked yet. (Cindy)

ComputerHope is one of a very few places on the web that I have been going to since the beginning to find legitimate, dependable, and easy to understand knowledge about all things pc and internet. If more were like you, this world would be a much greater place. Thanks. (Anonymous)

Oh my god, this is taking me back to when I was a desktop support in the 90's using all these tweaks. I saw PowerToys and I'm like "awwwwwww, I remember powertoys. awwww.". (Anonymous)


Very comprehensive. Links that describe every component of the steps required for a task, are very helpful. Problem solved. Thanks!. (LG)

Your site is extremely helpful. I am a person who does not understand much from computer settings. However, with your help I resolve my problems so fast. Thank you!. (Elena Leparova)

Thank you, the page was clear and straightforward - and gave me the information needed. (Many of your competitors make the mistake of attempting to blind with science, use teenage-techie inspeak, or assume we all sit on our backsides in an office in Silicon Valley drooling over the latest software). Well done. (Jon)

Followed the step by step advice and fixed the problem. Easier and better instructions than I found anywhere else on the internet. Thanks. (Jim)

I am nearly 72 years old. Maths was not my strength. I wanted to know how many kilobytes were in a megabyte. I found out. I've recent bought a tablet with 16 gigabyte and can see I've got a lot of space. Thank you. (David)

I looked all over for an answer to my Windows 7 problem, then found your site and had the solution in 15 seconds. (Bob)

Was searching for basic CSV information and found a simply arranged lesson with very helpful information. Thanks. (Anonymous)

I'm going to share the machine language page with my team as an example of using plain language to explain a complex idea simply, completely and compellingly. Nice! (L. F.)

Excellent explanations thank you. (Kate)

I Appreciate Everything About Computer Hope, Please Keep Up The Good Work #ThumbsUp. (Bob Kush)

I am so grateful for the highlighted links to get you to the correct sites instead of just instructions on the "how to find or do" something in the computer world. I never even knew there was a site with a link to show you the exact information about the phone, tablet, laptop, etc... that you have. This gave me a great deal of insight. Thank you so much for all of the information provided. (Lauriesjames)

I was looking for data on older processors, thought I'd give your site a shot. Been a while since I had the data in front of me and it was good to have some again. Look forward to coming back in the future and recommending it to others. (Martin)

Surprised that it was so easy to recognize and remove the battery. Followed instructions and there you are. Thank you. (Cora T.)

I finally found this page and was so happy to see the simple solution was to use the mouse. Thank you so so much. I have wasted so much time. (Mad)

I have been waiting for an hour to no avail. Thankfully I came across your page and followed your suggestion to remove the battery and it worked! Thanks a heap! (Vivers)

Excellent site to use for problem solving... Also a great reference source for all the intricacies of MS. (Paddy)

The info about environment variables has ended a 6-month mystery for me! (SolihullRog)

I can't thank you enough for posting the solution to getting my plugged in mouse to use instead of the built in mouse on my laptop. Simply turning it off, unplugging the cord and replugging it back in worked. I was SO frustrated. It was an easy peasy solution. (S. P.)

Thank you it's refreshing to just be able to get the answers your needing, then to have it actually work! Thank you. (Amber)

Very, very, very helpful tip. I was going to restart my laptop, etc., which wouldn't have solved the problem. This tip saved a lot of time and taught me something new. (Shohel)

Fantastic answers, easy to find and very helpful. (N.)

This article is quick and to the point. The answers were REAL answers in Beginner's Technology terms!. (O. T.)

This was the best article I have ever read! OMG. Thank you! I love you! Okay, I'm going a little overboard, but seriously, this was great. A HUGE weight lifted off me. My cat pulled out a audio cable and I didn't remember where they went and I spent searching internet and finally figured out from a google image of my speaker where the other cable. But no! That didn't fix it. I tried every connection possible. I went through my filing cabinet and went through old manual. As far as I could tell, I had reconnected correctly (which took hours to figure out because I couldn't see the extra hole/jack in the active speaker till I found a google image), long story short, it was a simple fix of having to reconfigure audio settings in the computer, having to reselect the speakers in the manage audio devices, or something. Anyway, I had lost hope and was thinking I'd have to take it to computer shop and do without sound etc. This article saved me! I'm printing it out and saving for future reference. Godsend for those not computer savvy. (Paula)

Finally, to-the-point, precise info, not dumbed down to the point of uselessness. Thank you!. (Daniel B.)

Outstanding website!!! I've viewed others, but yours is BY FAR the easiest to come close to understanding what these terms mean (equivalents).

FINALLY, a way to put these words into use with common everyday items with which both he and I were able to grasp. I can't tell you how much more meaningful this makes these terms! First thing I'm going to do is to save a link to this site, because I know my other grandchildren will eventually be interested in knowing this too! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!. (CLDR)

I don't know why, but I just booted my computer, ran linux on it for about 45 minutes, and then shut it down and I am going to run MEMTEST+86 on it all night. Thank you. (Jeff)
