Launch Chrome, up near the top right corner is 3 dots, click them. Click "Settings". Click "Advanced" Click "System" Toggle the 2 switches shown below. You will be prompted to Relaunch, do so. Now the acceleration is turned off and the apps will no longer run in the background when Chrome is not running. Turning off acceleration will help prevent the computer hard locking while you are watching a video in Chrome. This is a rather random happening, but it does happen. As for the apps, they do NOT need to be running in the background, this just makes Chrome boot up faster if you launch it again. With the apps not running, the system has more resourced for your work and will slightly speed up the system. To be honest, for me it's more about the memory the apps take up, than the speed - you will probably not notice any faster run times. But they do take up a lot of memory. When you only have 8GB like me, and run things that are memory intensive, they can b
On Nov, 2, it normally would be way more cold and we would have snow by now. The last 5 or 6 years no snow until much later on. Climate has definitely changed here. When I was a child in the 1970's and a teen in the 1980's, there would be snow up to my knees at least and Dec and Jan would be in the -40 or -50 range. Now if we hit -30 we call it a cold snap and most of the winter I don't need a heavy jacket at all. As for snow, if we get more than 4 or 5 inches it's a point of interest. As it is right now, It's -4C and I could go out in my light jacket and be comfortable. As for snow, there has been almost no sign of it. It tossed a few flakes at us last week, but it instantly melted. Gone are the days you could not see the houses from the street, because the snow was piled so high. As well, it seems to be a heck of a lot dryer now. The crops are not so good these days because of it. I am just rather glad I never had children. I can't imagine how the world will
Memories from this day is yet another super annoying thing from OneDrive. Remember it making hundreds of albums you did not ask it to do or wanted? Well this is like that - yet another feature almost no one will want. Go to your phones settings, then apps then click OneDrive. Last, click "Memories from this day" to turn it the hell off and make it leave you alone. Honest to GOD if this pile of storage space did not come with my Office 365 subscription I'd uninstall OneDrive and never use the dang thing. But since I want the storage space - I use it. BTW I'd kind of LOVE it to have a dark theme, but then again I been wanting that on Facebook for Android for a very long time.
A is the payment I put on it when there was $71 over the limit. You can see, they know it was made and is listed. It was out of my bank and in theirs by the time I took the screen cap. B The amount left on the card is obviously under $600 (my limit - yes I'm poor). C Available credit is still $71 over the limit, so no going to the store for me. I've not had this happen before, but evidently it does happen a LOT with some people. The explanation is "the payment did not post to the card yet". Well, how the hell did it know to change the amount that was left on the card, and NOT post to the dang credit card at the same time? This is B.S. The worst part is, I need stuff and it says this can last for a week or MORE. DANG. If it is not fixed tonight when the system does it's thing (about 5pm my time), then I'm flipping out on someone. I called them this morning and they where of no use. The fellow on the other end of the line was talking extremely quiet, and with th
I'm feeling sorry for myself. My birthday is in a few days and I'm literally completely broke. This is the first year ever where I won't be able to get some pizza or whiskey or anything. My friends will be getting me a cup of coffee, but that's about it. I should be happy to have them to be with on that day, but I am feeling down. The worst part is, I gave money to someone who needed it more, they had no food. This should negate the feeling of oh poor me - but it's still there. I realize there are a vast number of people worse off than me, but that fact does not lower my self imposed suffering. I also can't seem to GTFOI and just be happy for what I have. Society has told my my entire life I need "things" and "money" to be happy and it's so deep rooted that I feel bad. The other thing is, I knew this may happen, so I already had fun at the start of the month and I got a shinny new stuffed toy for myself. Yet because I can't have my us
