Windows 10 Partitions   Partitioning.png
« Reply #1 on: Apr 6th, 2019, 12:38pm »

"Floppy disc" drives are no longer supported;  consequently, A: and B: are no longer reserved as labels for these drives.
 
We can now use them as labels for disc partitions; I have created partitions Audio (A:) for .mp3 and .wav files (instead of Myriad Documents > Export > Music Export) and Backup (B:)
 
To create/format/label a partition, right-click on the Windows logo (Start icon) and then Disk Management to see the disk partitioning (as below) and then press F1.

Score + Forum, side-by-side on screen

 Open your Score.
 Press the Windows key + Left arrow    
   
    Help > Go to BBS    
    Press the Windows key + Right arrow    
   
 Click the square Restore icon at the top-right of the HA window to restore your score to full-screen.
 


As is the case with Harmony Assistant, Windows has too many short-cuts to remember!
Two easily-remembered and useful short-cuts are:
 
 Windows key + E  = Open File Explorer    
 Windows key + D =  View Desktop  
 Click the Harmony Assistant icon at the bottom of the screen to restore a Score

Thanks for this useful hint, Tony. The zone of the taskbar to click to get the desktop is far too small, and does not show anything.  
 
 
Btw, Pressing Windows key + D a second time returns to the previous screen.

Backup your HA Set-up   Copy_preferences.png
« Reply #4 on: Apr 9th, 2019, 6:14pm »
Quote | Modify

Backup your HA customisation! It is so demoralising to lose years' of customisation because of a disc crash/corruption/new computer/new operating sytem !!!
(Your registration codes for Hamony, Virtual Singer and MyrSynth (H.Q.) will also be saved)
 
In Harmony Assistant click on  Help > Open "Myriad Preferences" folder  
A File Explorer window opens, showing the path :
 
[] > This PC  >  Local Disk (C:)  > Users > {name} >  AppDat  >  Roaming  >  ACAMPREF  > Myriad
 
[] GMDigit   … (plus many other folders & files).
 
   Type Ctrl-A to select all of these folders & files.
   Click on the icon at the top: Copy To > Choose location (at the bottom of the new narrow window) and then copy to a secure folder (i.e. not on drive C:).

Backup your HA Set-Up (part 2)   New_folder_created.png

What! You do not have a Backup Folder ?
 
Windows allows you to create one during the copy process.
 
 Right-click the New Folder to re-name it (for example, My HA Setup).  
 
  Give it a special icon.  ("Keys" are appropriate, since you are saving your registration codes!):
  Right-click the New Folder  > Properties > Customise > Change Icon > {choose an icon} OK  > Apply > OK

Backup your H.A. Set-up (part 3)  
« Reply #6 on: Apr 9th, 2019, 6:59pm »

If you have Gold Sound:
 
By default, the folder GMDigit contains almost 1GB of data (provided you have not loaded it elsewhere and reset your Configuration >> Paths).
 
You would probably not want to make a copy of this - especially if you have the disc!  
 
Select the folders and files to copy manually:
 
 Click on the MyrScript folder.  
 Press the Shift key.
 Press the Page Down key, twice
 Copy.
 
Then go inside the GMDigit folder and manually copy the files other than Gold.sdb

Windows desktop short-cuts   Forum_property_windows.png
« Reply #7 on: Sep 7th, 2019, 12:07pm »
Quote | Modify


A right-click on the Windows desktop allows you to create a new short-cut Icon  (just copy-paste a web address and give it a name).  
Double-click the new icon and you get taken to wherever (whether on your disc or on-line).
 
A right-click on this new Icon, under Properties lets you allocate a key to this shortcut.
 
Below, you can see that the key-combination Ctrl+Alt+F takes me directly to the Forum. (Alt Gr_F does the same thing)  
(Only a single-key, upper-case or lower-case is entered - Windows changes it into the form Ctrl+Alt+ )
 

Problemo:  If an identical short-cut exists in Harmony Assistant, then the latter will not work; there is "priority to Windows".
For example, I have a short-cut (Alt Gr_T) that takes me directly from the desk-top to Tesco (a supermarket web-site).
From Harmony Assistant, the short-cut that should display control-handles (in Page mode) Ctrl+Alt+T also takes me shopping!    
 
To put this non-simply: The use of keyboard short-cuts for Windows desktop icons which are themselves short-cuts can stop some short-cuts in Harmony Assistant functioning

Thanks Tony, for this hint. It sometimes can be useful, but at first glance it will, for a specified html, create an Edge tag and a google selection.  
 
 
But I might buy it for specific Windows Explorer calls, provided it's flexible to assign the shortcut, not to a keyboard combination,  but to a task bar icon.  
 
Yes it may become annoying when the shortcut is also/already used within HA. Though I understand since keyboard shortcuts work as a bottom-up pile: Windows being the bottom level, a shortcut defined there takes precedence over the ones defined at higher levels.

1. Gather together your Windows 10 installation disks.
 
2. Chuck them in the nearest garbage bin.
 
3. Install Linux on your computer.
 
4. Done!

Eye-strain can be reduced by setting the screen display to low blue light.
 
Windows Key > Settings > System > Display (or simply search Night Light)
 
The setting can be immediate or scheduled.  
 
Note that Windows' "dark mode" is different to Paul's dark mood above

July update Windows 10   Microsoft_new_Edge_logo.png
« Reply #13 on: Jul 3rd, 2020, 12:12pm »
Quote | Modify

A major update is being "rolled-out" which replaces Window's Edge browser with a new version (with new icon shown below)
 
The following is reproduced from the website: https://www.howtogeek.com/549577/how-to-enable-microsoft-edges-new-crapw are-blocker/


While Edge and Chrome are now pretty similar under the hood, they’re still different. Edge strips out Google’s services and, in many cases, replaces them with Microsoft ones.  
For example, Edge syncs your browser data with your Microsoft account rather than a Google one.
 
The new Edge offers some features Chrome doesn’t. For example, Edge has a built-in tracking prevention feature and a potentially unwanted program (PUP) blocker.  
In keeping with the old Edge’s interface, there’s a favorites button to the right of the address bar on Edge’s browser toolbar. Microsoft is also porting other features from the old Edge over, including “collections” for capturing snippets of web pages and storing them in the same place.
 
You might prefer the new Edge if you trust Microsoft more than Google—or if you just want a browser with built-in tracking protection features and Chrome’s rendering engine.
 
Either way, Windows 10 users who stick with the included browser will now have a more modern, capable browser with an open-source rendering engine that’s updated more frequently and better supported by websites. That’s a win for everyone.

“Potentially Unwanted Apps” Are Crapware

 
This browser feature blocks “potentially unwanted apps,” which are also known as “potentially unwanted programs.”  
PUPs include obnoxious features like adware, trackers, browser toolbars, cryptocurrency miners, and other junk you almost certainly don’t want on your PC.  
PUPs have been called “malware with a legal team.” You give permission to install this junk when you click through the license agreement, so it’s not technically malware.

  • On your desktop or in C:, create a new folder, press enter, it's named by default as "New directory" or something like that
  • Rename it to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  • The name of the folder disappear, its icon is changed
  • Open it
  • Enjoy!
