    Default I'm trying out my new computer

    Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely day.

    I'm not as happy as I could be with windows 10 so, just to make sure my beaming smile remains intact all day long, I've hooked up an old windows 8.1 stick computer to a projector.
    It seems to be working very nicely so I have an extra reason to smile today.
    I hope your day goes as well as mine.

    Thank you for reading.
    Nice Fred

    I've improved the system and tidied up the wires so I can smile even more than before.
    I've fitted a bracket to the wall, hung the projector from that, then fed all the wires as required. There's still one mains cable to replace and tidy up the HDMI lines but it's about done.

    I hope my satisfaction rubs off onto you so your day is as happy as mine.

    By the way, the thing on screen is the first line of my favourite sonnet I'm recording as I love it so much it makes me smile when I hear it.

    Here it is.

    Do You have a Mouse with that or are you running Touch Pad?

    I'm using a lovely Logitech wireless KB and mouse.
    The cute little laptop also has a bluetooth mouse but I only use then when the machine is stand alone. I fully intend to change the laptop for an Intel stick running windows 8.1 as I love to smile and windows 10 doesn't make me do that.
    Before I can, I must factory reset it but the files aren't being found by the computer so I've have to go to a shop.

    I've just switched to the stick and apart from the cmos time not being set and it's a lot cluttered with old stuff, it's working fine.
    Still, I think a trip to be factory reset is probably a good idea anyway before I set it as my main computer.
    I have a very small 500 GB SSD hard drive so storage space isn't a problem and, if it is, I have 1TB and a 2 TB standard hard drives to play with as well.

    I should get a Mouse for my Windows 10 Computer because this Touchpad Thing keeps Malfunctioning thus Driving Me Up The Wall.
