Just joined & starting with Windows basic. Why are there two screens for the same video? Which one to use & how to make it full screen? Also, just played the first video; the second video,
did not load & could not view it. Never had any formal training, lots I don’t know & want to start from the beginning to learn what I didn’t even know existed & missed out on. So tired of the frustration from being so illiterate on the computer & now I have a smart phone which magnifies the frustration ten fold.
I’m (timezone) in California, not New York. How do I change it?
Hello Derryl and welcome to Geeks on Tour. I’m so glad you found this forum – asking questions here is the best way to get the most out of your membership. Sometimes we’re at the computer and we answer right away, sometimes it may take us a day or two, but either Jim or I will always respond to questions posted here.
About the 2 screens for the same video – that’s a quirk of the old way we used to embed videos. They are exact duplicates, you only need to watch one! As I notice them, I will fix it – so 00.basc24.Touchpad Settings is fixed now.
I hope we can help your frustration and you will learn to love using your smartphone!
To change timezone:
- On windows computer: right-click on the time where it is displayed in the lower right corner (aka systray) and choose Adjust Date/Time you should find a setting for time zone under there
- On smartphone: Settings, General/System, Date Time. Although on a smartphone, it should detect time zone automatically from the cell tower.
And, here’s an article about Time Zones: https://geeksontour.com/2011/06…..time-zone/
