Pardon The Inconvenience

Dear Reader:

You've reached this page because you clicked on a link to a CMP story from a competing site. Now, we have no objection to people linking to our sites. We like it. We encourage it.

But not the way some folks do it. Some sites seem to think THEY don't have to play by the rules. That they can use OUR content for their benefit. Instead of just linking to us, they reprint significant portions of OUR stories on THEIR sites. Or they create pages in-between the link and our site -- and then sell THEIR ads on that page. Or they rewrite our stories for their own sites. Only then do they bother to put a link at the bottom of THEIR page to OUR article, hoping that the link will justify their mis-appropriation of our content.

Well, it doesn't. In fact, we Internet publishers have a word for that kind of behavior. We call it: "stealing." And after we asked politely for them to stop -- and they didn't -- we've had to take the extraordinary step of intercepting these links to protect our investment in creating our unparalleled collection of technology news and information.

To configure the command prompt

This "Microsoft" link:

By selecting the Quick Edit Mode check box, you enable copy and paste from the Command Prompt window. To copy, select the text in the Command Prompt window with your left mouse button, and then right-click. To paste, either at the command prompt or in a text file, right-click.

By increasing the screen buffer size to 999, you enable scrolling through the Command Prompt window.

By increasing the number of buffers to five, you increase the number of lines in the Command Prompt window to 5000.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
