Please help. Magnet links no longer bind to torrent

I have both transmission and qbittorrent installed (my favorite). I use to be able to click on a magnet link and open it. Now, I'm unable to choose either. The open link appears after I chose magnet, but just seems to do nothing.
Please help.

How to change refresh rate and scaling?

I'm using an external monitor. It doesn't like 60Hz, but plays fine on 50Hz. I went to the displays setting but can not find anywhere to change the refresh rate.
Also, Is there a way to increase text scaling as the letters are very small.
Thanks.

Shut the system down, when the system is off, the drive can't be "busy", unplug it then.
The drive has long been removed, its a ghost image that remains.

Try using umount -l /dev/sd??
That didn't work either. It's dev/sda1 Is it possible its a clone of my main HDD that is also 1TB?

[SOLVED]How to use Samba ?

I installed System-Config-Samba. I don't know where it is as searching in the menu for samba shows no result.
Does anyone know of a tutorial on how to run Samba, or maybe tell me how to access the tool I just installed?
Thanks.

Why is there a difference on the way you update?

But how do I install LM on the second SSD? Even If I take it out, I'd need a way to interface with it.

installing dual boot with Windoze 10

I now feel comfortable enough to install LM on my main driver. It's a Dell gaming laptop but I don't play games, except for retro games, I use its power for content creation. It has 2 SSD Drives. One has Win 10 on it, the other I just installed but haven't formatted. I'd like to have LM on the new d...
