LLOYDS is going to FLY TJ, Last time I bought Office was about 2 years ago. I found it on Amazon it cost £19.50. I thought what the heck I will take a chance. I paid and got a link direct to the Microsoft store and downloaded it. I found that the link was only active for 24 hours.

LLOYDS is going to FLY trader_jack: We also need to check exactly what speed processor you have in your PC and how much free disk space you have (not just how big your disk is). Do you know those things ?” I hope I have managed to find that out as well. Accoding to the Properties tab on “This PC” I have an Intel ® Core ™ i7 6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz. I did try to copy and paste that information across but for whatever reason it did not want to allow me to do so. Well good news @trader_jack, you now have the latest version of Windows 10 and your PC easily meets the hardware requirements to run Office 2019. So you are good to go, you can order with confidence that it should work just fine. Wow a Core i7 PC with 16GB of RAM that’s a very good spec PC. Disk storage is fine too and adding up your figures I can see that you have. 1TB disk probably with 3 partitions which correspond to your C, D and E drives. Very sensibly set up. I’m betting you have an old fashioned rotating hard disk and not a modern solid state disk though, which is a shame as it makes your PC 5-10 times faster. And not that expensive either, but that’s a discussion for another time !. Well done for installing that update and for providing the PC spec info. Just be very careful when you place your order that you order “Office 2019 Home & Student”, from a “Fulfilled by Amazon” supplier and at a price that you are happy with. ATB Pref

LLOYDS is going to FLY Hi TJ, I shall keep watching the market. I take the ups and downs in my stride and don’t lose sleep over it. I too have recently been thinking about visiting Oradour sur Glane. I shall listen out for any birds. Best wishes, Frog in a tree

LLOYDS is going to FLY At the close, LLOY down over 2% at 52.01. FTSE down just under 2%

trader_jack 25 Feb 2020

LLOYDS is going to FLY frog_in_a_tree: I see that the FTSE is down by 1.6% today. With yesterday’s fall that gives us a drop of about 5%. Oh dear! Hi there Fiat, I hope that you are well. I have decided to stop looking at markets and prices until somebody informs me that the sun is out, summer is here and this coronavirus was just a distant dream. My problem might be will the powers that be allow my grandson and myself to leave these shores, drive around the Somme and return to the U.K. without having a temperature guage or whatever shoved in our faces over Easter? Also, I am due to take my granddaughter to the theatre in London on Saturday and out for dinner as well. Will London still be open I wonder? I know, where’s the corkscrew? I feel the need to douse my worries with a few large glasses of a reasonable Bordeaux… By the by, I came across some photos yesterday of my last visit to Oradour sur Glane. A place that will live long in my memory. I swear that I never heard a bird sing any time I have visited there, even tourists were quieter than is usual. Best wishes TJ

LLOYDS is going to FLY PrefInvestor1: Hi @trader_jack, Well no it’s not necessarily a problem that you don’t have THE most up to date version. Certain updates were optional and you would need to have gone on the Windows Update page within Settings (the cog icon in the Start Menu) and EXPLICITLY selected to have them installed (by selecting the feature update and selecting download) Ideally you should try doing that if you feel able to do so. Hi again Prefinvestor and many, many thanks. I have followed your advice and my computer now tells me when I check with “winver” that I am now running Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.657) as you mentioned in your earlier post. I thought that the automatic updates that Windows 10 carries out on a fairly regular basis would have done that automatically. I am sure that I won’t be alone in thinking that. “We also need to check exactly what speed processor you have in your PC and how much free disk space you have (not just how big your disk is). Do you know those things ?” I hope I have managed to find that out as well. Accoding to the Properties tab on “This PC” I have an Intel ® Core ™ i7 6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz. I did try to copy and paste that information across but for whatever reason it did not want to allow me to do so. As to disk space, I have a C: Windows, D: Data and E: Recovery. My computer engineer set the computer up for me like this when I first bought it and he got it all up and running for me. As it stands my C drive has 52GB free out of 117GB, D drive 838GB free out of 916GB and the E drive 1.5G free out of 15.2GB. I suppose that is some good news if you are correct in that there is not going to be a Windows 11 or even 12. Let’s hope that Windows 10 can carry on for some years yet, at least until I am ready to find myself being chucked into a skip… Again, many, many thanks for all your help and patience. Best regards TJ

LLOYDS is going to FLY quote=“trader_jack, post:4317, topic:1144884”] Just looked on google & Windows 11 is coming out in late July this year . Oddly it then goes on to say that Windows 12 is also coming out this year but the wording is quite odd:- "Microsoft will release a new Windows 12 in 2020 with many new features. As previously said that Microsoft will release Windows 12 in next years, namely in April and October. " [/quote] I think that talk of Windows 11 and 12 are fake news. Pretty sure I’ve read policy statements that Windows 10 plus incremental enhancements is all there is EVER going to be. So no Windows 11 or 12… Don’t believe everything you read on the web… Pref

LLOYDS is going to FLY trader_jack: “In next years” I wonder what they mean by that? Now I am wondering should I wait a few more months and do everything at the same time. No idea what it means, but I’d avoid buying a first release of any new Windows… assuming it doesn’t try to upgrade itself, but I don’t suppose it will to a whole new release.

LLOYDS is going to FLY trader_jack: Thanks for you gudance I have managed to find what version I have of Windows 10. It is 1903 (OS Buo;d 18362.657). It tells me it was last updated at 17:47 yesterday evening. I guess that means that I have not got a new enough version of Windows 10 to run Home & Student 2019. As I mentioned yeaterday my computer haas 16GB RAM and 1TB harddisk, Firefox is my preferred operating system.

LLOYDS is going to FLY PrefInvestor1: Well the full Office 365 costs £80 per year every year, which is expensive compared to a one time purchase. It also includes a lot of web functionality which you will never use and probably would prefer not to be there. They issue updates EVERY SINGLE MONTH which will happen completely invisibly to you, this can cause things that were working to NOT work. I have had that happen, but I know how to fix such things. Not sure its a great idea for you…?. I think 2019 (or 2016) is your best bet. Hi again Prefinvestor, Back from the supermarket, fridge, fruit bowl and wine holder now fully stocked for the week. Thanks for you gudance I have managed to find what version I have of Windows 10. It is 1903 (OS Buo;d 18362.657). It tells me it was last updated at 17:47 yesterday evening. I guess that means that I have not got a new enough version of Windows 10 to run Home & Student 2019. As I mentioned yeaterday my computer haas 16GB RAM and 1TB harddisk, Firefox is my preferred operating system. I thought that all Windows 10 were updated regularly so that whenever you bought Windows 10 the updates would ensure that everything was as up to date as if you had purchased it today. Just looked on google & Windows 11 is coming out in late July this year . Oddly it then goes on to say that Windows 12 is also coming out this year but the wording is quite odd:- "Microsoft will release a new Windows 12 in 2020 with many new features. As previously said that Microsoft will release Windows 12 in next years, namely in April and October. " “In next years” I wonder what they mean by that? Now I am wondering should I wait a few more months and do everything at the same time. I have been mulling over Home & Student 2019 and Office 365. If I purchased H&S and my computer decided to pack up permanantly on me would I be able to transfer H&S 2019 to a new computer? I guess that if I were paying a monthly / annual subscription there would be no problem in transferring over to a new computer if necessary. That is one reason that I always preferred to have the programme sold by Microsoft on a DVD. Just in case I have been on to Amazon and have just purchased “Excel 2019 Bible” it seems to have good reviews and if it can help in any way to give me a little bit more knowledge that can only be a good thing. That will give me something to read over the coming days whilst, hopefully, the markets start to calm down. Best regards TJ
