  1. Maybe I just need a better video card? If anyone is aware of a video card that works in DOS, with minimal fuss, and at 1024x768 resolution with programs like QPV/386, PictView, QuickView Pro, SEA, Display, I would be thrilled! Thanks!
  2. I have DOS image viewers on my Windows ME computer, but they can't recognize any screen resolution beyond 800x600 High Color. When I'm running Windows my graphics display is set to 1024x768 True Color. But when I run a dos prompt under windows, and use DOS programs, they don't detect higher resolutions. I would like to be able to use the 1024x768 resolution that my graphics card is capable of, while in DOS mode, if possible. Is there some updated VESA driver that I can use? My graphic card is the integrated kind.... here are my computer specs: https://www.cnet.com/products/hp-pavilion-7845-minitower/ Only thing I've upgraded is the RAM. Things I've tried: rebooting the computer in DOS mode, which didn't work, programs still don't recognize anything more than 800x600.
  3. http://byukruk.tripod.com/ IconDesk ^Check out this program, it's Dope!!! Very simple way to make stuff look better/modern. On your desktop it can make your icon's text transparent. Which I thinks makes it look cleaner and more up-to-date. Here's what it does: You just run the installer, then the program gets added to your StartUp folder, so that when you start your computer it always comes on and is minimized to the system tray. Then right click on the little icon in your system tray, then click on "Transparent Icon Text Background Color." That's it! (2) Then to make it look more cool, right click on your desktop, select properties, then click on the "Appearance" tab. Then click on the "Item" drop down list and select "Icon." Once you select "icon" from the list, then you can select the font and text size you want. I put mine on Verdana, font size size 9. Now it looks pretty Neato! Anybody else got any desktop tweaking programs or hints ??? Thanks.
  4. Imagine 1.1.0 - Freeware image viewer http://www.nyam.pe.kr/dev/imagine/
  5. Sorry, don't have the link for the user agent switcher. It was a dead link anyway :-( Wow that's quite the Opera Toolbar, congratulations! How much work did that take? Just a few questions, but what is TLS? You mentioned "Roytams special FF2 - FF3.6 builds with TLS1.2"
  6. ***SOLVED**** I figured it out. All I had to do was set it to "Identify as Internet Explorer" and now I have the old Google webpage back now. I can view cached pages again :-) Here's how: Go to.... Quick Preferences->Edit Site Preferences->Network Tab (then identify as Internet Explorer)
  7. "And when finally learning about it, it was almost too late, there were already ALL Opera addons deleted on the web :(" -Siria @Siria Yeah, I hear ya there. I found a link for an Opera User Agent Switcher add-on, but I couldn't get it to download... or work. At least not from my Windows ME computer.
  8. In my first post I should clarify, I'm using the Firefox 2 User Agent in K-Meleon 1.6, and that's why I can view the old school Google page. The default k-Meleon 1.6 user agent doesn't work either.
  9. @Loblo I entered the string, but there was no way to save it. Once Opera is restarted it disappears. @Schwups Same thing, the string just disappears after re-starting Opera, even if I clicked "save." ^I might try these suggestions on Opera 11 and see if I have better luck than Opera 12. Thanks. @Siria Thanks for the information about Roytam1's programs... I will read those threads you linked to. But I'm not sure I will "upgrade" past basic old KernelEx 4.5.2. Sounds like there's a lot of potential problems if you don't know what you're doing, which I don't, and I don't want to have to format and re-install everything :-)
  10. One last question... are there any Kernel Ex browsers, besides K-Meleon 1.6 or 1.7, that allow custom user agent strings ???? What about SeaMonkey 2.x, Firefox 3,4,56,7,8,9, whatever number??? Is it possible? Seriously, at this point, K-Meleon 1.6 seems to be the FINAL BROWSER for me. Once this one goes, it's bye bye Windows ME on the internet :-(
  11. *There IS a way to choose to identify as Firefox in Opera, but you can't specify, or MANUALLY enter the string yourself. So it doesn't do me any good. Here's how: If you go to: Settings, quick preferences, edit site preferences, then click on the Network tab.... You can choose browser identification, then select Firefox. BUT..... it comes out as this "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.0; en; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0" Firefox 4 on Windows NT 5.... which goes back to Mobile Google search results, hence no Cache function.
  12. Anybody know how to change the Opera 12.02 user agent to this: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv: Gecko/20081217 Firefox/" The problem I have with Opera 12 is that for the last few months Google always loads what I assume is the MOBILE VERSION of it's home page. The search results don't have the option to view the cached site. And since half the websites out there now are "secure," because of HTTPS, I can't view them anyhow. So what I do is click on the Cached site, then view Text Only Version. On dial up this is absolutely necessary if I don't want to wait 10 minutes to read something. Basically, google is redirecting certain browsers to a useless, stripped down Mobile Thingy, where I can't view the cached site, and the image search results don't work. Only way around this is the user agent string from Firefox 2, or (cringe) Netscape 9. I started using K-Meleon 1.6 again, which is kind of a downgrade from Opera 12, but still way better than Firefox 2. It works good again, I can view the old school Google Results page, and click on cached websites. So I'm pretty good now. I was just wondering if the user agent can be altered in Opera 12? Thanks for any tips suggestions.
  13. Image Eye 7.6 --- KernelEx 4.5.2 (WinXP SP2 Mode) https://www.fmjsoft.com/imageeye.html Alternate download @: https://www.sac.sk/files.php?d=5&l=I ieye76.zip Nice simple image viewer with ability to edit, copy, move, enhance pictures, and so on. Loads images surprisingly fast too, even on my old Pentium III.
  14. I was at Best Buy yesterday looking at the Computer section. It looked like something out of Star Trek. Too many Egyptian Hieroglyphs and stupid buttons that I can't tell what they mean. In short, the user interface stunk. I still think the Windows 3.1 Program Manager was the greatest desktop screen ever invented :-)
  15. Depends on your definition of bad. Do you want to own your computer, and feel free to use it for the next 40 years until, and go through as many hard drives as you want, and get your money's worth out of it. Or do you want to rent a worthless hunk of soon-to-be expired piece of over priced scrap metal that will become outdated in year, because of planned obsolescence that will require to buy the same old crap year after year, for the rest of your natural life. The top is Windows ME.... the bottom scenario is EVERYTHING after Windows ME. (Windows 2000 came out first, so yes, Windows ME was the last real Operating System that you didn't RENT.)
