Re: Windows shares not showing up under 'Network' but ..

Re: Windows shares not showing up under 'Network' but ..

Thanks, but I think I may have a different problem. I can connect to all the shares, using either their ip addresses or windows network names.

Color rendition

I’m seeing a strange effect with color rendition. For example, if I look at my albums on Google images, the thumbnails show up in the correct colors. If I click on an image, it comes up with reduced color saturation. I’ve tried several different browsers with the same results. Repeating the experime...
