Then, in the right hand panel click on the dropdown arrow next to the dvd icon & find & mount the Windows iso. Win 10.png Then O...

Re: VirtualBox Advice

WharfRat is correct that VirtualBox can be installed from the software manager. You should install Virtualbox Virtualbox-ext-pack Virtualbox-guest-additions.iso in that order, you will also, by doing that, automatically download & install another 4 Virtualbox additional downloads. However that versi...

He has his own github related to that.

Re: What is the right way of installing Adobe Digital Editions (Windows version) on my Linux Mint?

Personally I have never had much luck running Windows programs under wine so it is not a direction that I would take, Providing that you have a decent CPU & a good amount of RAM (8GB minimum would be my recommendation if you want a happy experience, but it certainly can be done with less) then Virtu...

Re: MS Excel "Date Modified" problem

As Windows 7 goes EOL in January, you might want to consider placing it as a guest in Virtual Box with Mint as the host.
As long as none of your favourite Windows programs needs to contact the internet then you might be safe there.
You can then use Mint to contact the outside world...

Re: How to set default document rules in LibreOffice Writer?

I notice that you want the default font to be Verdana, which is a Microsoft font & not loaded into Libre Office by default. If you have not already done so then you need to add Microsoft Office fonts. https://zillowtech.com/install-microsoft-fonts-linux.html You can Add Verdana as you default font b...

Re: How to set default document rules in LibreOffice Writer?

I would imagine that there are a number of ways, but personally, I would create what you want in a new document & then save that as a template - then you just load the template when you want another new document. [1. Create a document and add the content and formatting styles that you want. 2. Choos...

The get out option if a printer does not offer duplex is to select to print only odd numbered pages first.
When finished, reverse printed pages in the paper in-tray & then select to print only even numbered pages.. :D

Re: Physical Hard Drive Switch?

If you are really that worried then have Windows 10 installed on 1 USB drive & Linux installed on another.
Then only plug in the USB OS you want to run.

For me.. Pierre's advice would be good to go.. but I don't worry about an great deal of 'stuff' that other folks do.. :D

The full install might not work with complete satisfaction out of the box when loaded, but in many, many cases it will. In the cases that it does not work immediately on install then I thi...
