    How important it is to log out from a website vs clearing history?

    There is another app you might want to investigate and install it is DuckDuck Go Privacy Essentials. Also running a good add blocker is not a bad idea either. Always, Wildman

    You IMO should clear everything listed especially the cache. Always, Wildman

    How important it is to log out from a website vs clearing history?

    In your WEB browsers there is the option to clear history as well as other items. I use Firefox and Chromium have them set to clear everything when the browsers are closed. This may be the answer for you. Always, Wildman

    Very New to the Game

    A lot of helpful folks on this forum. Welcome. I have used Linux Mint for some time now (21.3 the latest version) and switched from Windows10. I will never go back to a Microsoft operating system. Not hard to use Mint and not much of a learning curve required. Always, Wildman

    This time it's official. Mint 22 Beta Released

    I hope upgrading to version 22 is as easy as it was for me to upgrade to Linux Mint 21.3. I will admit I looked on YouTube on how to do it. The procedure was easy but it did take a long time for the upgrade to finish. For free however I can not complain. Once again IMO Linux is the way to go...

    Give your thoughts about Linux.

    I have been a Linux mint user for some time now and find it much easier to use than any version of Windows I ever used. I was a military personnel system manager in the U.S.A.F. and that introduced me to the computing world. I will tell people Linux is indeed not windows but IMO much easier and...

    Gimp 3 is on the way

    I finally did it. Windows in the trash!

    I also am in my late 70's. I have been associated with computers since the late 1970's. Part of my job with the U.S.A.F. was as a military personnel systems manager. I first got associated with DOS and Windows1. I will admit I do not know much about the Microsoft systems of today. I know that...

    I finally did it. Windows in the trash!

    Do you really have control? Is Windows 10 open source? I had nothing but one situation after another when I was on Windows 10. I was reluctant to try anything else because I had used Microsoft for so long. Being totally frustrated I bit the bullet and installed Linux Mint on a old Acer computer...

    Gimp 3 is on the way

    I thought KolourPaint may have been the one but nope it does not have a move tool. Pinta would close out and go back to the home page when ever I tried to do a undo. I think I'll just stick with what I have in wine. Always, Wildman

    Gimp 3 is on the way

    I have wine set up and use PhoXo and Irfan View. I use gimp to make .gif avatars. I used PhoXo and Irfan View to make the background I posted here. Still will look at tutorials for gimp but find them hard to grasp and understand. Always, Wildman

    Gimp 3 is on the way

    I just want a simple very easy to use program. I am not trying to create a master piece. Wasn't a Photo-shop user when I did have Windows. Yes gimp is good but very hard to understand for us non graphic savvy individuals. Just to many requirements to use this tool then that tool and so on and so...

    Gimp 3 is on the way

    I'll keep looking but sure don't get the flipping through all them layers just to make a what I think should be a simple function. I can see why people say gimp is hard to learn. Always, Wildman

    I have been searching for an easy to follow and understand tutorial on how to use gimp. All I find is that witch is showed jumps from this place to that place and all over and I don't understand a thing nor even have the ability to remember any of it. I want just simple quick and easy to...

    It's time for a poll. How long have you used Linux?

    This is the second computer that I have had Linux installed on. The first one was a old one back in 2017. This one was donated to me from PCs for people. Been with Linux for 6 years now. Always, Wildman

    This problem appears to have been fixed by changing the Software sources. Always, Wildman
