Cyndi: Hello, hello, anyone out there? This is Cyndi reporting from safely within her green cave.
Percy: Hello, hello, reporting ... green cave? What language is that?
Rusty: I think it's Confused. As in, Cyndi had too much nip after breakfast.
Cyndi: I did not. I was just trying to see if anyone was paying attention.
Percy: You have our attention. What is there to report?
Rusty: It looks like a tree.
Cyndi: That's because it is a tree. A lopsided old oak with dead branches sticking out everywhere. It reminds me of Jan's hair when she wakes up in the morning. Not dead, just sticking out everywhere.
Percy: And we're posting this because ...?
Cyndi: Because Jan likes the tree. And because we don't have anything else to post today.
Rusty: But we have lots of pictures to post.
Percy: Actually, Cyndi's right. Jan upgraded to Windows 10 Saturday. It took from 5:22 to 8:02 and then she spent 3 hours trying to close windows and lock doors because she didn't want it to let in the clouds.
Rusty: I think you mean she didn't want to use the Cloud features so she turned them off until/unless she figures them out.
Cyndi: We know a lot of you have upgraded. How do you like it? We went from 7 to 10 and there are some big differences.
Percy: One of the things that has Jan frustrated is that she was used to using Windows Explorer to view her photos and to tag, title and comment on them in batches after she downloaded them from the camera. Win10 doesn't have that feature and she hasn't yet figured out how to do that again.
Rusty: We have hardly been able to visit because Jan has been hogging the computer. She downloads photos into Picasa on the computer but not our new vidoes because they're invisible to Picasa (and to us) on the camera. Both her Sony cameras can only make HD or MP4 movies.
Cyndi: HD can be seen and played in Picasa, but not MP4. MP4 videos are invisible. She finally found a photo program installed some time ago that downloaded mp4, but then she had to turn detective to find where it had hidden the videos.
Percy: We have had to go without treats while all the attention has been going to the computer. We would be jealous but Jan keeps threatening to send Win 10 to the shredder.
Rusty: If you have a suggestion how Jan can tag and title her pictures in batches again, please let us know or we'll have to keep posting the picture of the tree.
Cyndi: I guess we should be thankful Jan hasn't blown up the computer. Yet.
Percy: We're exaggerating a bit. There are some good things about Win 10. But ... helllllllp!
NOTE: Thanks for the suggestions so far, but the problem I am having is how to tag, etc, photos in batches. Cortana, One Drive, etc, etc, etc, etc were turned off Saturday night. I can't believe MS took away that function. Finding and remembering where things are takes time - lots of time.
