Question about notepad++ double click behavior between certain characters

Hello there, greetings. I have a question about the double click behavior on a program called notepad++. Specifically, I have noticed that certain symbols will stop the double click selection.

For example, take this string of text.


If I were to double click the word 'notepad' in the following string of text, the selection of text would stop at both of the dash '-' characters. Both before and after the word 'notepad'.

My question therefore, is there anyway to modify which characters notepad++ respects as stopping points for a double click selection? If at all possible, I would like to remove all such respect for any characters, so that I can select an entire line of text with a double click.

I exhaustively looked through all of the available options within notepad++, but could not find anything that looked relevant. I am hoping someone more knowledgeable and experienced, either with notepad++ or computing in general, can be of assistance.

Thanks guys for reading my message and for any help offered.

I'm not sure if you can change the default behavior for what double click respects as a "word delimiter," but if you're trying to select an entire line then triple click already does that

Is it okay to mix and match ram? I have 2x8gb right now, but want to add 2x4gb. Pic unrelated.

Yes, you can safely mix and match memory sticks in pretty much all DDR<insert number> systems.

If frequency and timing differ, the controller will usually adjust for slowest clock and loosest memory timing... some fiddling with clock speed and timings may be needed.
If the board doesn't cooperate right off the bat, load the default BIOS settings or reset the BIOS, insert the new RAM and adjust the best you can.

Though, note that you may be prevented from using any XMP profiles baked into the RAM SPDs... they only usually work correctly if the profiles are similar enough.

ipv4 getting blocked

Since last week for some unholy reason I have been having problems accessing ipv4 only websites with only being able to access sites like google, facebook and surprisingly 420chan which all support ipv6 by default. I ran traceroute on both ipv4 and ipv6 and was able to determine with 100% confidence that something is blocking my access to ipv4 addresses. This issue only happens intermittently meaning it's not all the time. The question is, is this a router/modem issue or could the ISP be doing this?

modem/router? I would call tech support, they can test your connection from their side of town.
Possibly the modem/router is fried. This is good if you have had it for a few years. You would
have tech support come out and see if the issue is inside your house/apt, or outside.

If the modem/router is fried and especially is a few years old, you would likeley get a comparable modem/router,
which could be the same as you have, but likely they will have discontinued that model, so you could get a comparable
one or an upgrade. Either way it would be an upgrade. Unless they try slip you the same model. If past issues with the modem/router model have been intermittent do make that known. The likelihood they will upgrade will be far better.

There are a lot of things you can try to isolate or fix this issue, but tech support sounds like the easiest route. Do this asap. You can get somebody there by monday, tues.

Otherwise, it could somehow be a windows? Issue, somehow not working resolving dns from your isp. I cannot really think of anything much other than dns not resolving. Whether it is configuration issue or hardware.

May be modem or router, also may be due to the internet companies and the repeal of Net Neutrality back in 2017. ISP's with monopolies have small towners by the balls with that, they're not the best people to talk with either. ISP's have also blocked me sometimes. Call them and tell them if they keep blocking your usage, you will change services. This has been a repeated tactic you are going to have to use because of the repeal of net neutrality. It's sucked ever since and I hope they bring it back that way we don't have to fuck ourselves out of more cash just for these fucking buisnesses.

Yeah but I mean, if an executable errors out, the .exe should actually be on my drive, right? So if it doesn't exist, wouldn't that point to it being something malicious covering up any traces of itself?
I have yet to hear about system software that self-destructs.

It's the only time I've seen it, but I have seen traces of other bullshit in registry earlier too though, just been putting off installing another system since I just use this machine for unimportant non-sensitive stuff. Porn and games essentially.
I've fucked about with linux and stuff before, I am computer literate.
The error isn't the actual problem, other software have crashed with the same error before, think it's this version of windows that doesn't like my hardware (won't even let me open my disc drive by the button, need to press eject through software, and other similar stuff, and I know it's not the actual HW since linux handled it all just fine).
It's the program hiding itself that makes me highly suspicious.

I am sure it's on your computer and can be found. Just because it is an .exe doesn't mean it will be easily found like notepad. In firefox folder there are .exe files like maintenanceservice.exe which would not show up with a simple search. If you were to search 'for all' .exes,,, if would likely show up, among a lot of files with the same .exe extension. I don't know how to do it. Just as the system hides file extensions by default, it will not offer all
.exes because many are just part of processes. This is more techy-like stuff.

You can see windows system executable with Get-ChildItem -Filter "*.exe" -Recurse from a command prompt, poweshell is best for command line.
You can list all .exe files and find their paths in windows.

There are programs that will find all files according to their extensions and paths.
Time taking process.
I would just save all of your files you want to keep to a usb or whatever
and install windows new. If you have and older system you can likely
go to 10 easy enough. Sounds like you system would like a new install.

I got my A+ and Net+ in 2009. Obviously it's expired now but I was considering taking the A+ again to get my foot in the door. However, I have a pretty shitty criminal record at this point. I always do good interviews but I lied about my past and should have told them first but didn't. My charges are all for DUI and misdemeanor drug possession. The last charge I got for DUI made it my first felony though. I'm just wondering if I should bother studying and pay for this exam or not.

So on my desktop I have issues with 2D rendering when viewing streaming videos, watching videos that I've downloaded onto my HDD or even scrolling fast on a web page. I get the horizontal line flickering. When I run benchmark scores all of my scores turn out fine in the low-mid/mid range scores, which is what I expect for my setup. But the 2D benchmarks were terrible.

Pic is my CPU, next post will have GPU.

Main questions are - what affects 2D graphics more, the GPU or CPU? What should I upgrade, CPU, GPU, or both, to improve this issue? Any other suggestions besides upgrading?

I know you're supposed to have checked but are you sure it's not dust? It can clog in-between the heatsink fins where you can't see it but where it prevents any airflow.
You can only reach that with a can of compressed air and easily miss it.

So I looked that up and I can't adjust that setting due to having a graphics card. From what I can tell that only setting is only available if you have onboard graphics or if the display driver allows it, which apparently my nVidia drivers do not. But when I go into the nVideo control panel there's no hardware acceleration/2D settings that I can find. :(

If not fixed already, Arial fonts is what you are likely looking for. If just web browser showing these, try uninstalling and reinstalling. Do %appdata% and delete the browser folder after uninstalling google chrome. Before reinstalling. It will not
harm anything.

Some things to try. just for fun you can go to searchbar type dxdiag click it.

Try this, open powershell as admin. Type devmgmt.msc, window opens. Locate monitors, drop down may say generic driver. Right click, driver update driver with search online.

I just did it and it correctly installed this computers monitors correct driver from a generic driver. A definite correct driver model displayed instantly and the screen does not have faint wavy lines. Success!

Try updating windows.

Otherwise, note monitors model and look to the site for the correct driver and save it. install it?

Sometimes people install windows with a video card installed. May cause grrr. If so.

Take the thing out, and reboot. Preferably using a vga cable if your comp and monitor supports it. DVI if that's what you have. Start windows.

But in practice, Initially installing windows using a vga DVI connection when installing helps initiate a correct monitor display from the beginning. Otherwise windows is just trying to guess how to connect to video card or through hdmi. If all looks good

Then use hdmi, video card, whatever, after you systems seems stable and the monitor seems to look correct via dvi or vga.

Worst case, reinstall windows via vga or dvi if this isn't resolved in like 15 minutes. No video card. Avoid hdmi.
If the install is a success and everything looks fine, great.

The rest will be identified correctly through windows updates. Vid card, hdmi connection. Or just simply by restarting after changing connection cables
and or installing video card.
Can go back to devmgmt.msc to see what or if it recognized everything right. Generic drivers are usually just fine, but correct drivers from the vid
cards website or windows update options should find everything correctly.

Ive formatted and repurposed a rig from work that was otherwise to be recycled. Windows 7 would not boot so I formatted and put Win 10 on it. My plan was to wait for purchasing a license. For some odd reason, the machine would shut itself off and ask me to add a drive to boot from.

Taking the drive card out of the slot and reinserting would fix the issue for a couple of hours. Unexpected_Store_Exception

I've looked up how to approcah this scenario, and there were too many approaches. Its a decent machine otherwise, that I've got for free. I gotta wonder if its worth the labor to determine the issue. I feel like my first approach should be diagnosing the health my disk drives, how about does this go? Thanks ; O

Easier fix, dig into bios and look for efi option, disable that save and exit. You cannot harm anything. Easy as well is reset BIOS to original configuration, or factory default and save. That would be to the far right in bios settings. Do check option to 'other than' efi/uefi if it is present and simply save and exit that way.

Use the disk wipe method, wipe the drive for a few minutes. This would fix wipe a corrupt bios and effectively remove directions to corrupt partitions/filesystems. NTFS windows ext4 is linux.

Then simply go through the motions of installing windows 7. Create a 501431 windows partition,
50 or so gigs. 50,000 mb. This will create windows on a drive. Then save the rest of the space for future use. That should make an E: drive.

In future installs, windows 7 goes first win 10 next then linux. Or simple 7 the ten or win 7 then linux.
It can be done any way you like but earlier versions of windows first, then linux makes things a lot

An easy option is create windows 7 make it like say 56434 gigs, and you can run windows 10, linux 'within windows 7' at the same time.

Called a virtual machine. You can remove any install by simply deleting it. You need to have enough space to install on, so your E: drive is where you would like to install your VM to. Windows linux.

Hey guys, I'm a brother from /psy/, first post here.

I bought myself a custom built PC second hand for a fairly good price and the fans keep running at full speed ALL THE FUCKING TIME, non-stop, FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON.

I tried disabling in the device manager one of my graphic cards (the Intel HD Graphics 4600 that came with the mother board) to keep only the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970, but that didn't change anything.

I really don't know what to do and it's driving me crazy.

Plz halp?

Here are some specs in case it helps:
Windows 10 Home
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 quad core, 8 threads 3.60GHz
RAM: 16gb
Graphic card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 by Gigabyte
Power supply: Thermaltake TR2 600W

Hey guys, can anyone recomend a simple desktop recording program to capture audio/video of my desktop? I'm taking a college course online and my professor has set it so that their lectures are removed from the course site after 2 weeks of broadcast. This is a problem because these lectures contain information we need to review for exams and isn't in the text or handouts.

Before you ask, yes this is a dumb set up and I'm trying to get them to change it, but in the meantime I need to get these recordings while they fix the issue.

I've tried a couple of free desktop recording software, but so far they either do not capture audio, save as a unique filetype that can't be played back in a media player, or can only capture in 3 minute intervals before auto shutting off

I need a program that can record a video conference that goes on for 1-2 hours, saves audio and video, and is free.

I don't care if it has a water mark or if the quality isn't crisp as long as it's functional. I just need a basic program.

Thanks for any recs
