Depends though. If you buy a midrange or especially a lower end processor, those go obsolete a whole lot faster. A really high end system likely will easily go 6-7 years. Like this Ryzen r7 4800H.

Its slower then the Intel core I3 8th generation…

So does this tell me that even a Core I3 would meet my needs with integrated graphics, all other things being equal?

The newest version of Pontes Media Downloader eliminates the slow download problem

Gene
 

I don't know how long the new version of Pontes Media Downloader has been out.  I seldom use the program and don't keep up with when new versions are released.  However, because of the considerable interest in the program, I'm informing the list that the newest version eliminates the slow download problem.

You can download it from this ;page:
https://www.pontes.ro/en/scripts/#pmd

On my Windows 7 machine, I have annoyances with the program such as that I have to leave the window and return off and on to be able to move through it properly..  Also, the menus don't come up when you are in certain fields of the program.  But since it removes the slow downloads problem, I'm willing to put up with those annoyances.

I haven't tried the program on my Windows 10 machine so I don't know if the problems occur in Windows     10.

Also, it appears to me that when you upgrade, settings  you have changed will be lost.

Re: Need Help with GMail on Chrome

A Google search for  remove member from Gmail  group, shows the following as a web snippet:

To remove members from a group that you manage:
Click on the "Manage" button at the top right next to the gear icon. Click the checkbox next to each member you'd like to remove. In the "Actions" dropdown, select "Remove from group"

I don't know if that applies to your group.  I saw another bit of a web page in the results that talked about classic Google groups but a search of that kind may well give you the information if what I presented doesn't apply.

Hi,

 

Between the left control key and the Windows key is the FN key. Holding down this key will allow F6 and F10 to work as they did with your old computer. Since you have a dell, you should be able to press FN + the Escape key and change the functions keys to the way that you are use to using them without having to hold down the FN key in conjunction with other keys.

 

Hope this works.

Re: Virtual Recorder Not Working

You can try my suggestion, but I doubt it will work.  I have Virtual Recorder on my windows 10 machine and it works even though it isn't in the programs386 folder.  You might as well try my suggestion but it looks to me as though the upgrade did something in Windows that doesn't allow the program to work.

You may have to try another program, as was suggested by another list member.

You may want to purchase the program discussed by the other member.  If so, I hope there is a demo so you can see if it works on your system.

You may want to try Audacity, if you want a free program that may record with Loop Back.  Its supposed to but it evidently doesn't work with Loop Back on all machines.  I remember reading something written by Carlos saying that Loop Back in Audacity didn't work on the machine he was using. 

There is an Audacity blind users' list if you try it and have problems with Loop Back.
