    Here's something that I don't think gets a lot of thought, but at the same time, we need to remain vigilant of it. Those who many not dualboot and use Windows 2000 natively will notice that new printers are getting harder and harder to find that support Windows 2000. That's where I want this thread to come in. I'm now the proud owner of a brand new HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw printer and of course, the oldest OS it supports is Windows XP Service Pack 3, which is honestly surprising in itself. So on my quest to find something that worked, I took note that Windows 2000 does have a native Color LaserJet driver available by default, the HP Color LaserJet 8500PS driver. You actually can use the Universal Print Driver v4.7 but to be honest, the above driver works better as the colors seem a bit more true to what they should be, the UPD makes your color images a bit dark. I decided to take my chances and was pleasantly surprised, this driver WORKS on Windows 2000 for this printer. It communicates without a hitch and prints just fine in color. Now, who can truly argue with that? There may be other, better ones that may work but I felt the need to document this right now and also to just start a thread of printers that are working on Windows 2000 in the year 2020 and beyond. This is one of HP's latest LaserJets so that is fantastic to have a driver working that doesn't even need to be a universal driver. I have not tested this as far as a direct connection goes though as this is communicating over my network wirelessly. Once I get another Ethernet cable, I'm quite positive I will be hardwiring it instead as a direct wire connection is not only faster but more reliable though the router is only 4 feet away from the printer in the next room. So please, share what you guys find and lets keep Windows 2000 going as long as we can while keeping it as functional as we can! Printing is certainly a fundamental so we need a database that we can ensure proper replacements as our aging hardware fails.

    Loblo, could you keep a copy of your application data profile of Opera. In my case I keep a copy of the Opera program folder as I am using the 12.18 files. It will probably be the browser.js that makes the difference mine has changed at 31/01/2019. My browsers have succumb to Google's mobile search view for some time now has your Opera got full width on Google search? It might be easier if you could post the browser.js for us? Siria, A web article said to make up a opera ***user.js file and place in the profile next to browser.js for GreaseMonkey mods to work in Opera. Not all code is totally compatible though & there are articles out there https://github.com/mislav/user-scripts/blob/master/toolkit/gm_functions.js I believe this one is written for Opera, it may give some clues. This has to be done also, force Opera to use the new JS file here https://www.ghacks.net/2008/08/10/greasemonkey-in-opera/ All we need is the first part of your coding for Opera to view full width again - (if it is viewing 1/2 width), the rest of the code is important for CometBird9 down to the FireFox2 only part. Other info https://simply-how.com/enhance-and-fine-tune-any-web-page-the-complete-user-scripts-guide & http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/operaStuff/userJavaScript.html . ViolentMonkey for Presto here https://github.com/violentmonkey/violentmonkey-oex Bruninho, What web site gives the wrong font family? I think you need to update fonts? I made a mistake SeaMonkey does not need 2K settings. Are you OK about changing KEX registry settings and the alteration to Core.ini?

    Not too sure where I downloaded my VSFilter but you should find a working version here: https://code.google.com/archive/p/xy-vsfilter/downloads LAVFilters comes from here: http://roy.orz.hm/lavf-w32-nightlies/ but filenames aren't explicit. Otherwise get from Github, it's only slightly older and should be fine too.

    Seems like when installing on W10, if you select W8 mode, you get a theme atlas and PNG for "Win8 Look", however if selecting W10, nothing. Just figured this out empirically by installing both ways on a Win10 system. Perhaps the opposite is true if you are installing on a Win8 system?

    It turned out that there is a special version for XP and Vista, build 5.64.7577. https://download.ccleaner.com/sunset/ccsetup564_xp-vista.exe

    Your conclusion might be a little hasty, since 5.64 hasn't even been released at this time. According to a Wilders Security post, Edit: New FAQ posted just minutes ago: Why do you no longer support Windows XP or Vista?
