How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission.

Another Bad Update, Only H/P Units Involved: DigameXtra reader Ady L. points out http://www.techradar.com revealed that Windows 10 KB4524244 update was causing issues for users, and it’s now (in the process of being) pulled by Microsoft. This update was causing issues with HP devices because of its Sure Start Secure Boot Key Protection. https://www.techradar.com/news/windows-10s-latest-update-fail-could-be-its-most-serious-yet
All Windows Users Should Be Making Periodic Restore Points: DoctorLaptop advises H/P owners, and its a good idea for everyone running Windows, to make a System Restore Point now, so if they encounter a problem in the next few weeks as the update gets pulled from circulation, they can do a quick, easy recovery. It’s simple, just watch this video. If you are not the kind of user who makes regular system backups, then this easy task is something you should do once a week. It only takes a few minutes. It won’t recover your data if your hard disk crashes, but it will allow you to recover from many other problems.
