    Microsoft integrated Adobe Flash natively in newer versions of the Windows operating system so that the built-in web browsers Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge can make use of it automatically.

    SingleFile is a cross-browser open source extension for Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera to save any webpage you come across as a single HTML file.

    All versions of Windows include a Recycle Bin to store deleted files. The main idea behind the Recycle Bin is to provide users with options to restore deleted files provided that they are still stored in the Recycle Bin.

    Files are not necessarily gone when they get deleted in the Recycle Bin as they may still be recovered by using recovery tools such a...

    Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system comes with a set of voices for each language installed on the device. Only some of the installed voices become available system-wide so that third-party software and services may make use of them as well. The majority of voices are restricted to internal use, e.g. for Cortana or other areas.

    If you open Settings > Ease of Access > Narrator and select...

    Most Windows users who run the email client Thunderbird run 32-bit versions of the client. How I know that? Simple: the only version offered on the official Thunderbird download website is 32-bit for Windows.

    While it is possible to grab the 64-bit version, users have to actively search for it to download it as there is virtually no reference on the official Thunderbird website that indicates...
