Solutions: Get Gmail to always display images

We use Gmail for our e-mail, and when we receive an e-mail with pictures, only a few pictures are complete and visible. We then need to right-click on them and then left-click to show the picture. How do we get all the pictures to show without having to right-click on each picture?

Try going into your Gmail settings and checking the "Show All Pictures" setting. This helps with photos that your contacts choose for themselves. There is also a known Gmail issue with consistently displaying pictures. You can get a lot more info by using the Gmail Help search for "Always Display Images."

I have a 19-inch monitor and would like to view certain sites on one page rather than having to scroll left and right. Example: I play Fantasy football on The way my roster page displays, I have to scroll right to see the stats of the player I am viewing. I would prefer to be able to set the mode of viewing for where I can view this page on one page while not affecting other websites I may work with now or in the future. Can you help?

I don't know of any way to change the screen resolution for particular websites automatically. You can do it manually with the Zoom feature of Internet Explorer. There should be a magnifying glass icon on the bottom right of your Internet Explorer window with preset sizes from 50 to 400 percent. You can also use a keyboard shortcut by holding the Ctrl key and either the "+" or "-" key simultaneously to shrink or enlarge the screen.

When I try to transfer a photo file to an SD disk, I get a message that I need to turn "readyboost" on and can do so only as administrator, which I am. Just how do I go about doing this?

Windows is asking you if you want to use the flash (SD) disk as a memory boost. This is how you can get rid of this annoyance: From My Computer, right-click the SD disk and select properties. On the Readyboost tab, click the option for "Do not use this device."
