Missing ROKU Remote
I forgot my Remote for the ROKU Box in WI, is there any other way to operate the Roku device besides buying a new one?

Yes if you have a smartphone download the Roku App. It works great and gives you the ability to plug in your earphone and mute the TV. Great for watching while someone else is sleeping. I have a Roku TV and it does not have the ability to plug earphones into the Roku remote as a separate Roku box does. That remote uses WiFi and the TV remote uses infrared.

Save Text Message Image
How does someone transfer an image from a text message on the phone to the Gallery or Google Photos?

Each type of phone has Its own way of taking a screenshot. You need to check with your type of phone. An iPhone is different than an Android. The newer models of either work differently than the older models.

Open the picture up on your phone and take a screenshot. been using the edit function on your phone crop out everything but the picture and save it. if you have Google Photos installed on your phone as an app it will automatically take that picture and put it up into your Google photos in the cloud. then you can grab it from there and use it in an email, print it out, upload it to Facebook, etc.

5 Ways That Chromebooks Are Better
Despite all the growth they’ve made in the last few years, Chromebooks still get a bad rap or are often thought of as “just a browser.” That couldn’t be further from the truth, especially now.
