What does it mean to browse InPrivate?
When I open a new window, I get an option: “Open an InPrivate Browsing window”
Anyone know?September 9, 2009 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1081155
InPrivate browsing is a feature that lets you surf without recording history files and without storing cookies or temporary files on your computer. Basically, it’s like deleting your history and TIFs after every time you browse.September 9, 2009 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #1081156
Thanks Reb squeak. The benefits being?September 9, 2009 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1081157
The benefits being self-defined. Whatever reason you might have for not wanting to store a history of your web travels. Could be because you are using a public computer, could be because you don’t want your harddrive cluttered, or could be because you are looking for a perfect gift idea for your favorite blogger who is having a birthday soon and you don’t want him to see what you are buying. Not that I have access to your computer, but just in case ;). The possible benefits are whatever you can think of. But to most people, it doesn’t really matter. It’s a feature that you may never care to use.September 9, 2009 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1081158

Now if only someone had posted the answers to all the questions, we’d know everything!September 10, 2009 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #1081163

as an aside there aint nuthin wrong with being a pal of yourself just don’t over do itSeptember 14, 2009 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #1081181
HP, that name could’ve only come from someone learning.
re my SN: of course not! I just wouldn’t have chosen such a way to identify myself.September 15, 2009 7:32 am at 7:32 am #1081182
Heora Pshuta: welcome! post, post & post some more!September 15, 2009 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1081183September 15, 2009 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #1081184the.nurseMember
anyone know why the google logo looks like it does today? nothing comes up when i put my curser over itSeptember 15, 2009 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #1081185
Crop circles. Click on itSeptember 15, 2009 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #1081186
mepal, if you have a Toshiba this will work (it may also work for others but I couldn’t say). Hit fn+tab. This should cause the fn menu to pop up. When it does, close it and fn won’t work.
If you never want to see fn again, you can edit your startup menu. The simple way to do this is if you see the fn exe program in Start -> Programs -> Startup. If you don’t see it, then you can do Start -> Run and type msconfig.exe. This will give you edit access to config.sys, which is probably something you shouldn’t try unless you have confidence in your ability.September 15, 2009 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #1081187
Crop circles are a documented hoax. I’m not sure why anyone would want to learn more.September 15, 2009 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #1081188
Thanks squeak! I have a Dell so I’ll try fn+tab and see what happens.
I dont excel in computer programming so I wouldn’t play around with the ‘Run’ feature.
I really dont understand why they must make it so complicated! Who needs it anyways?September 15, 2009 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #1081189
There are documented cases of C.C. hoaxes (guys flattening the grain with wooden bars and ropes, etc.) But that doesn’t prove that all cases are hoaxes.
I don’t think they are any more disproven than alien UFOs.September 15, 2009 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm #1081190the.nurseMember
glad to keep you busy, ames 🙂September 15, 2009 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm #1081191September 15, 2009 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1081192
kapusta, if you have it on your laptop, it would be on the right of the ‘window’ button to your left. On a laptop, half the keys have ‘blue’ letters on them that get activated when you press the fn button.September 15, 2009 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #1081193
mepal – I have another idea for the less technically inclined. Remove or bludgeon the fn key. That will completely disable the feature. I did this to my F1 key (nothing more annoying than accidentally hitting F1 and being slowed down while the help files load).September 15, 2009 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #1081194September 15, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1081195
kapusta: STAY FAR AWAY FROM IT!! Leave it alone and dont start up with it!
squeak, fine. I do that, you explain to daddy when he blows the cover, deal?September 15, 2009 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #1081196
Sure. Send him my way 🙂
That’s it for me, pal.September 15, 2009 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1081197
I’d rather not start up, its the time of year, ya know. 😉September 15, 2009 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1081198
Some of you may be shocked by this:
Baa Baa Black Sheep
all share the same exact tune.September 15, 2009 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #1081199
That’s why the kids get all mixed up and sing all three songs in one.September 15, 2009 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #1081200September 15, 2009 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #1081201
kapusta, are you sure you dont work here? How’d ya know I was singin?September 15, 2009 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1081202
kapusta is beta testing some of our new equipment: The Moderator Espionage Monitoring Module. When the testing is done all new posters will be required to have their computers outfitted with it. The older posters will be exempt.September 15, 2009 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #1081203
with the way you sing, I think anyone could tell. Well maybe they thought it was a squeaky pipe or something. 😉
When I was working, there were men in the back working and they had music on during the day. There was one song, whenever it came on, I wasn’t sure if it was the machines they were running or the music. Thats how bad it sounded.September 15, 2009 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #1081204
