Message for FN

Sorry to hog the CR just wanted to direct FN to the post as she kindly left me some links so I can sort out my old browser.

I tried all the links you left me FN none work apart from your last link I now have a page in front of my screen which says Download Chrome for Windows. Under that there are two boxes for either to click on one is Set Google Chrome as my default browser and the other one underneath says Helo make Google Chrome better by automatically sending usage statistics and crash reports to Google .... learn more. Under this is says in bright blue box ACCEPT AND INSTALL.

Not sure what to do my son installed Chrome for me as an App on my Computer years ago but can't no longer look at anything on it with Internet as it says Chrome does not support my old browser anymore. If I accept and install download chrome for Windows FN will I then be able to access the Internet better with it which will overide my old browser ?

I loathe techy!😊

Thanks FN. no rush I am off to cook dinner will chat with you tomorrow .Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar HL just said he would buy me a new Laptop cerikey! He does not spend money often Very Happy I said but that would still not sort out my old browser.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar That's OK Camilla you can leave both those boxes ticked and click on Accept and Install.
Google will know which version of windows you are using and install the correct browser automatically.

Camilla's Avatar Oh thanks ever so FN so kind. Tired now tonight and off to bed soon my PC is up stairs in the office and will sort out in the morning. Thanks for letting me know I just have to click those 2 boxes and then click on Accept and Install for the download. I presume it won't affect any of my thousands of pics of personal photos of family or I won't lose any important emails I have saved?

Fairy Nuff's Avatar It's OK Camilla those are stored separately on your computer, browsers are just a programme that lets you access the internet, you can have several browsers on the computer at once.
I have Chrome, IE and Edge on mine and chop and change which one I use.

Camilla's Avatar Thanks FN. My son put the App of IE and Chrome on my desk top to PC ages ago so when I wanted to use the internet I just usually just click on the App and it directed me to the one I wanted . I know I used to be able to access FB quite well with Chrome but not with IE also used to use Chrome for Pininterest which I have not been able to do lately since they say my old browser is not compatable anymore.

Fingers crossed FN!Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar I did all that you said FN downloaded it and it completed but when I clicked on Chrome again into my browser it still keeps telling me as before......

This computer will no longer receive Google Chrome updates because Window XP and Window Vista are no longer supported.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar AH! the old Windows XP... that's different Camilla, I thought you were on 7 or 8... windows XP is so old now no-one is writing programmes for it anymore I'm afraid.

In that case I would take HL up on his offer of a new laptop it will come with windows 10 installed. Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Thanks FN yes forgot to say I am old one Windows XP.

Just spoken to my son on the phone we did at first think perhaps good idea to buy a new Laptop but then I won't be using it on a train or taking it with me anywhere so we have come up with the solution that perhaps a new Tower / to my computer I have at present is best it will have all the latest on it and have Windows 10 too the tower. I just then need to buy a hard drive disc too to transfer all my family pics onto it. What do you think FN:D

I have a mini iPad so I use that sometimes and can use it anywhere that has a wifi . I shall have to get either my son or my son in law to set the new tower up for me FN and do the transfer pics too for me. Fingers crossed! Thanks ever so FN for taking the time to help me out and with good advice I am most grateful.
