Not amazingly fast, but still quite a bit better indeed. Give it a try, to don't need to uninstall outlook to do that after all.

Windows 10 LTSC nennt die sich, gibt es soweit ich weiß aber nur auf Englisch. Die wird noch bis 2027 unterstützt, und bei Windows 7 wurde insgesamt 3x verlängert. Vielleicht kommt das hier auch.

The new outlook is utter garbage. It was in fact so bad that I uninstalled it and now use it through the web front-end only. And I'm doing that in Edge - as the only website this browser is allowed to open (asides from Teams, where the software is just as terrible).

If they call it a success that no more people are complaining because they just gave up, then, congrats... I guess?

Transition to what exactly?

Ich wohn in China, viel weiter weg könnte ich räumlich und zeitlich nicht sein :-)

There are about 20 people here who aren't hardcore leftists.

Windows 11 ist richtig schlecht. Das hat sich mal eben 4 GB RAM reingefahren, im Ruhezustand, und dann spielt das System selber noch Werbung aus. Hab das ne Woche lang getestet und bin dann wieder auf Windows 10 zurück. Da gibt's eine long term support Version von, damit bist du noch für die nächsten 10 Jahre sicher...

Ach echt? Gar nicht verfolgt. Gleich mal googlen, wer gewonnen hat.

Yep, spontan und auch gerne Nachts bzw. am frühen morgen, damit der Abzuschiebende nicht noch fix einen Protestaufmarsch organisieren kann.

Really? I don't mind it as a substitute for baking, but for eating on bread or using it to fry something I don't think it comes even close to the flavor you get from real butter.

It's a synthetic saturated fat, so basically a synthetic margarine. Butter is made from milk. So the headline should read "[...] makes 'margarine' out of water and CO2", but everybody hates margarine, so I get why they chose butter instead.

Hi all,

First off: Can't switch to Linux, Windows is a work requirement. Please spare me.

With that out of the way, here's my problem:

Since 2-3 days I've been seeing ads disguised as a minimized video player popup on my Windows 10 Login Screen image.

Initially I thought I might have been watching something on youtube and forgot to close the tab and it autoplayed in the background until reaching this stuff by chance; but that turned out not to be the case (I'm also using Firefox exclusively, which I thought wouldn't integrate with Windows, but I wasn't 100% sure on that end).

I tried to research this a bit, but the only similar case I found was in an old reddit thread saying that some Windows update installed the LinkedIn App for them, which is not the case here.

Antivirus (Bit Defender) and Malwarebytes both give me a clean report.

So I did some more digging and right click that thing with my firewall set to deny all to figure out where this is taking me, and surprise...

Image

There's a total of 100 connection attempts from Windows Search to around 10 different IP addresses, all of which belong to Microsoft.

I have not installed any updates in the last 14 days, no new software, and have not changed any system settings.

What did change is that I am currently not in China, where I normally live, but am on a business trip to Malaysia, where a bunch of services that are blocked in China might be accessible, and are now splicing in those (somewhat disguised) ads.

Does this happen to anyone else, and if so, do you have an idea how to get rid of it?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Dear all,

Since feddit.de has fallen into disrepair by its administrations, some of the fine folks over here have started feddit.org as a second home.

Like most (all?) feddit.de communities, we have now launched [email protected] (or alternatively https://feddit.org/c/germany, if your instance hasn't federated the community yet) to continue talking about all things Germany, in English.

Welcome to join us over there!

Hi all,

Just updated FF to 124.0.1 and now the whatsapp web view is broken. The text input field is somewhere in the upper third of the screen and in the background, overlayed by text boxes so that I can't actually select it. It's automatically selected when switching from one chat to another so I can type there, but only blind in most cases since any comment boxes overlap it.

Tried restarting, clearing cookies, re-authenticating, disabling all plugins, nothing worked.

Does anyone experience something similar and/or know a workaround?

Thanks!

Edit: Fixed by logging out of whatsapp web, clearing cookies, restarting the browser, and then logging back in. Neither of the steps had worked on its own previously, but the combination did the trick.

Hi all,

As our community is still small and not overly active, I thought instead of trying to have a weekly or monthly chatter thread up as a sticky, we could try a perpetual one and see what happens.

So anything you feel doesn't warrant a post of its own, just put it here.

Cheers and take care!

 

Hi all,

Need to pick your brains for a bit regarding best practices for handling of account recovery issues while traveling.

Premise would be that my phone gets lost or stolen, and I may not have easy access to my laptop either, and being in a foreign country I couldn't easily get a copy of the original SIM to restore via OTP.

Consequently, I also don't really love the idea of using some password manager with a master password and no F2A.

Under those circumstances, what would you consider the best way forward to ensure accessibility without crippling myself in the process?

The only thing I can come up with is a random subdomain on one of my domains, with random username and random password, where I store an encrypted container containing txt-files. Maybe even further obscured with a random cypher (all numbers / letters shifted x positions to the right or something).

But there's gotta be other use-cases out there, so I was wondering what you are using?

Ideally something that doesn't involve another person.

Thanks!

 

Hi all,

I've got a bit of a spam issue that isn't solved by either keyword or actual spam filter. The problem is that I'm in China and mass email marketing here is acceptable for some reason, so local spam filters don't catch the perps, and international ones are useless based on the language.

And since I'm in a customer/supplier facing role, quite a few genuine mails use the same keywords as the spammers, so that doesn't work to fix my problem.

However, the mails are usually sent to hundreds of people at once, all with their mail addresses in plain view in CC.

So I'd just like to set up a filter to send mails with >100 recipients or something like that straight to trash, but can't seem to find it in the outlook rule settings.

Does anyone know of a useful workaround?

Thanks!

 

I don't really use facebook anymore so couldn't care less; but so happened to log in today to change my password and saw this on my front page.
