Question

Can c/net separate computer downloads from mobile stuff

by 36grandpa / February 22, 2012 11:33 PM PST

don't want to sound like a grumpy old fart, but with so many downloads to sieve through, could this site separate all the stuff into PC or mobiles?
I'm one of the few that don't possess a mobile phone, never mind a tablet or netbook.
It would surely save us all heaps of time tracking downloads .

Can I just check?

I think you mean http://download.cnet.com/windows/

If so, then can you see the small list top left of that page, where it says "Find Software"? If so, then do you have "Mobile apps" ticked, or may be "All software"?

I refined my Download.com searches by just selecting the "Windows" option.

Would that work for you?

Thanks Mark, but I already have just the ' Windows' checked, plus ' free' in the advanced area.
I don't even own a mobile phone, and I have nothing that begins with an ' i' , neither do I own an Android or a Netbook, nor a Kindle, or any appliance that is ' mobile' in the sense that I can take it with me.
I do have a Laptop, but it is so slow it's akin to waiting for a steam-bus.
This is almost like admitting to heresy, but I'm not on Facebook, or Twitter either, can't see the point, if I need to contact my mates, I email them, and I don't need my PC and the Internet to tell me who my mates are.....
I just feel a tad impatient sometimes, scrolling through all the latest apps and programmes that connect the youth of today, when all I'm looking for is the latest software for my good old PC.
