That's a lot faster than I ever typed, even when doing it for a living as a programmer. However much time I spent at the keyboard I never got beyond using 4 fingers and a thumb. Not much reason to anyway, that was the point at which I could type faster than I could think up code to type.Ummm, as a former admin assistant/clerk, I'm a touch typist . . . which means the substitute finger doesn't know what it's doing! Which means 80 wpm is now around 30 or 40 wpm.
All of the years I have been using computers I'm still a hunt and peck typist. With arthritis in my righthand wrist and the damage left from the time I had trigger thumb I doubt I could do touch typing. Even using the mouse too much bothers me.Ummm, as a former admin assistant/clerk, I'm a touch typist . . . which means the substitute finger doesn't know what it's doing!

My first scanner looked something like a wand. I could only scan a small width of the paper, so I had to make multiple passes. Talk about a pain in the butt. It took me many tries to get something scanned correctly.I used to love using the teletype! I had to copy movie reviews for Columbia Home Office from the newspapers. No scanners way back then.
Practice and use is what my high school typing teacher stressed, over and over. I liked the Smith-Corona manual typewriter but she never let anyone try her new electric.With the advent of new technologies, devices and social networking, I figure my typing skills have improved by 1000% in the last decade alone!
Did you get any solutions?I have to agree with those that say that there are way more things that do work then what doesn't work. I'm running the latest Dev build of Windows 11 and for the last few builds I can't get the Realtek audio drivers to work correctly. To get my speakers working I had to run the trouble shooter and it removed the Realtek drivers and installed the High-Definition Audio drivers. Combined with FxSound that was recommended to me by @Fabler2, I now have my sound working like it should. I would still like to get the Realtek drivers working.
I still haven't fixed the problem with the Realtek driver. I used the troubleshooter and allowed MS to install the HD drivers and use FxSound for my equalizer. I think the fix will have to come from Realtek or MS. For some reason I have no faith in Realtek fixing the problem.Did you get any solutions?
My issue: Install Realtek Driver > No sound, test sound "failed to play test tone"
Uninstall Realtek Driver > Restart, windows automatically install sound driver > Sound back but can not use Realtek Audio Console...
Every Insiders updated, I have tried again by installing Realtek Drivers but still no luck... Must uninstall driver and restart for having sound againI still haven't fixed the problem with the Realtek driver. I used the troubleshooter and allowed MS to install the HD drivers and use FxSound for my equalizer. I think the fix will have to come from Realtek or MS.

I used Macs for 35 years and worked for Apple for some of that time. You are correct; while certain macOS upgrades required some minor hacks to apps or user approval if certain "security" features were not enabled in the app, eventually a number of macOS APIs changed to such a degree that nothing would get some old apps to run.Well, maybe I am wrong but I has heard Apple sometimes go one stage further and just point blank refuse to run some old software on new hardware? I guess this a better than just crashing.
I'm tired of reading about what "Doesn't work" with Windows 11, so how about a few reports on what DOES work?
I've yet to start my own list of what Doesn't work, I'm too busy with my list of what DOES work, with Windows 11.
And that list just keeps getting longer and longer, every day that I boot up my Win-11 Laptop, and install a few more programs.
Today, I've used an install of EaseUS Partition Manager to make a new Storage Partition on my SSD, so I'll have room for Backups.
And as I type this post, my Windows 11 laptop is busy running a 1977 Backup Program (Ghost 11.5) to make a compressed Backup of Partition C: to my new "D:\Storage" partition. As it has since 1977, Ghost is doing a great job of backing up my C: partition. It just never fails me!
I keep throwing programs at 11, and she just keeps on taking them just like 7, 8.1 or 10.
Heck, most of the programs I've installed into Windows 11, worked just as well on Windows 98, Vista, or Win-7.
And, all the tweaks and scripts I used to customize Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 work just as well on Win-11.
So, is Windows 11 a new OS, or just an old os with a new face. A false face at that!
It seems like the programmers at Microsoft just love to put a new face to an old OS. It's a lot easier, don't ya know?
I don't know actually how far back the Disk Operating System goes, but I'm suspecting about 20 years, or more.
In all honesty, I did find one VBScript that would not run on 11, because it was specifically written for Win-10.
But, with just a little re-programming, it's now running great on Win-11. It's designed to force a new restore point every time it runs.
I've put it in the STARTUP folder, so I get a new Restore Point every day when I boot up my PC.
I use that script on every PC I own. It has to be specifically written for each OS. Thank You, Shawn.
So, I'm curious how other guys find the program compatibility of Win-11?
Curious in Florida,
Happy Labor Day, Mates!
