Periodically I try to update my Java Runtime to
Should be easy. Supposed to be a self-extracting file.
Rather than a plain Rpm file, it is Rpm.bin. To date, I have found any way to make it work. My manual makes no mention of .bin and I have found no instructions anywhere. What am I missing? chuck

Thanks(again), Bob. I still have Fedora sites bookmarked, but don't check back much since I switched To MDK 10. May
be as simple as forgetting to change the permissions, but
I'd swear I did that in the past efforts. Will try again. chuck

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?
