Ugh. I don’t think my computer is supposed to look like this! The top of my screen is literally popping open and we’re looking into the inside workings through the 1/2″ gap. I noticed it Tuesday evening and I think it’s grown since then. Yesterday I headed off to Staple’s Office Supplies and then Fry’s Electronics. I was told it’s not likely to explode right in my face, but to keep a fire extinguisher next me when/if I use it. The battery could burst into flames and then explode. So no more petite Surface computer for me any longer. I have a new laptop, a bit larger, and I’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to get my email, make sure I have all the apps I rely on, and generally moving in to the new machine.

When I clicked on my link to get Movie Maker, the program I’ve used for editing my videos, I found “As of January 10, 2017, Windows Essentials 2012 is no longer supported on Windows 10, and is unavailable for download.” Oh no!

I try very hard to upload a new video every Thursday. I have a number of videos recorded, ready for editing. You do not want to see my videos without editing, believe me! So I will need to either quickly learn Adobe Premier Pro, a more powerful program, but lots to learn, or find a nice easy video editor similar to Movie Maker. That in itself is a daunting task. So no video today. I hope you understand!
