General Discussion / Windows 8.1 finally inches past WIN XP in % of market share.

Windows 8.1 has finally crossed paths with the now rapidly declining Windows XP. The chart still shows Windows 7 to be way ahead.

Windows 7 is still gaining, now at over 55%, as significant numbers of former XP users opt for WIN7, rather than 8.1.

Incidentally, if you have installed Cool Previews, all you would have to do is mouse over the below image to view it enlarged. The settings will also allow you to use the cool previews icon to mouse over for a viewing window. This method gives you greater control over when a new viewing screen will be opened.

General Discussion / Jing - a Freeware Video Screen Capture Program
« Last post by rsutter on November 18, 2014, 06:14:14 PM »
Hello All,

Techsmith, the maker of Snagit and Camtasia, offers a free screen recording program called Jing.  Here is a quote from the Techsmith web site
"Jing is a computer service that lets you capture basic video, animation, and still images, and share them on the web."

The program is well-suited for creating short how-to videos to demonstrate, among other things, how to navigate a web site or set up an application.

Download the program at

You can set up a free account on the companion site,;,  and upload your screen casts (video screen captures).
