Printing Envelopes
As we all get older by the day our handwriting has deteriorated more and more I'm having the worst time preparing a nice-looking envelope and also printing one with my Epson printer and my Libreoffice software!

Years ago I had the free Word software (Windows 95 or 98 came with the PC) that could click on envelopes and even had an address book attached clicked on the name and size of the envelope the return sender was always in the left upper corner - and print! (there was a preview of the envelope what it would look like there also)

Now I always waste a few envelopes or practice papers to get it right!

Is there a simple way for us seniors to do this,- or is there a simple software program out there to fix this up in one shot?

Adobe Flash

Edge and none of the popular browsers support Flash player files. Is there a way to force Edge to play flash files?

Microsoft Is Pushing Out Flash-Killer Update
Microsoft started to distribute the Windows update KB4577586, designed to remove Adobe Flash Player from Windows devices, yesterday evening. The update will be downloaded and installed automatically on devices with automatic updates enabled.

How to play Flash content in your browser in 2021
Adobe Flash will no longer be supported in 2021; Adobe released the final Flash update in December 2020 and announced that it will disable Flash functionality in 2021. Major browsers such as Chrome, Edge or Firefox won't support Flash either anymore, and these decisions lead to a question that none of the decision makers have provided an answer for: what if a user needs to access Flash content after 2020, and what happens to Flash content that is still available on the Internet as it won't just vanish when the technology is disabled?

Malwarebytes Trial
When Malwarebytes installs, you get a free 14-day trial of their Premium Protection.

I like to run the Real-Time Protection at least once before turning it off.

You can let it run the full 14 days and it will tell you your trial is over and it is time to buy it. You do not have to; just choose “I don’t need real-time protection” and click OK. Your account will be set to the free version.
