    Encryption is required

    Twingate can somehow check if you have a firewall on and encryption on. I'm not sure how Twingate collects the information whether encryption is on or not (somehow it collects that information from the OS). Is it possible to do something so that Twingate sees that encryption is on, without...

    Nemo Won't Recognize USB

    I Can't Get YouTube-DL to Work

I have YouTube-DL installed on Mint 20.1 (which ironically worked perfectly when I was still using 19.3), so I don't know what the problem is...

    How do I extend my Linux partition size?

    So I'm dual booting Mint and Windows 10, and initially I gave my Linux partition 100GB of space, but now I kind of used it all and I started searching online to see if I could just extend it by shrinking my Windows partition and just adding the extra space, but apparently that breaks everything...
