Since Microsoft have updated my version of windows to 11 Extra POI EDitor doesn't show the diacritics anymore. Am I the only one having that issue?
As far as Extra POI Editor, as near as I can tell the last version dates from 2014, so I would not expect compatibiity. Does Win 11 have a compatibility mode?
On desktops with a keyboard for instance, the Num Lock has to be turned on. Then you press and hold the Alt key, then hit four numerals to define the character. Then release the Alt key.
I installed Windows 11 for about 5 days then did a clean install of Windows 10. I had stuff that would not run under 11. I have had an app since 2015 called Playon Desktop that would not run under 11 , company said they had too many issues with it. Playon lets you legally record video off Netflix and Hulu and Disneyplus and so on. 11 included messenger from facebook that also would not run. I will probably stay on 11
I am also reluctant to switch to Win 11. Windows Update says this: "Note: Some Windows 10 features aren't available in Windows 11." Since I have some applications for legacy hardware with legacy drivers (Vista era), I figured it would be risky to switch to Win 11. The Win 11 upgrade isn't really free if you have to spend hundreds of dollars upgrading your other software. I have already received a notice that my current version of DVD writing software isn't supported under win 11. I suspect that there is a significant amount of software that people currently use that isn't compatible.
I meant to say i will probably stay on Windows 10 sorry
I'm happily on Windows 7. I don't surf the 'Net lazily, keep my AV up to date and don't have any social media accounts (at all), so I don't have to keep things 'current' there. Keep things simple. When drivers fail and there are no longer options? I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Years ago, a client's XP machine died and needed to be replaced. The new machine came with windows 7. Everything work relatively well, including their legacy programs (this was a manufacturing customer).
Ran into one issue with their printer. I don't recall the exact model, but it was an hp laserjet something or other. Sadly, hp didn't offer any win7 drivers for it, nor did windows have anything built in for even basic printing. They ended up having to spend upwards of $1K for a new "supported" printer.
The other option was to try to install xp on the new box, but that too would not be without challenges. Today's products have even more built in obsolescence - cell phones, tablets. It's amazing we can still replace storage on a laptop.
Surprisingly my own laser printer from 2016 still has current driver support. It's a canon laser aio.
