help

My screens buttons don't work, so I use the software menu. There is, under the category Color Boost an option called: "Demo" I click it the screen splits in half, right side is 'normal' the left side is how I expect a 2000€ monitor to look you know, sharp, contrasts, vibrance colors whatnot not overused but just nice. Anyhow I can't find a way to change the screens settings to look the way it does on the left side of my screen when I click demo. It's not warmth of color. Worth mentioning, if I change something while the Demo mode is active, it changes the entire screen! It's not like it's a preview or something it's just out of my league I need help desperatly https://imgur.com/a/SYtlVuI

I'm trying to mount a machine gun in my living room so it automatically points at whoever's in the room. My problem is it gets confused when multiple people are in there. Any ideas for how to overcome this problem?

DELTREE is an environmental powersaving mode accessible from a DOS window that Microsoft doesn't want you to know about

Microsoft recently teamed up with the MillionTrees project in an effort to save the environment and designed a new screen saver for the newest Windows 11 operating system.

Once you have it installed, open up a DOS prompt window and type in the Deltree.exe command followed by an emoji showing how excited you are about seeing the new screensaver.

Something like *_* or *.*, whatever implies you're wanting to be starstruck by it's visuals. Doing so will force Microsoft to Deliver a Tree to the MillionTree project's front door for nature.

It cut my power consumption by 20W per day annually.

Keep your clickable devices on the countertop to avoid lag.

I was watching some guy the other day try to visit a website and I swear... I had to come over and manually attempt to put the mouse on the counter next to him, he had it in his lap for some reason and kept tugging at it over and over, assumedly trying to navigate over to close the very loud woman yelling on the screen who was way too excited about arriving at her destination for some reason.

But he kept missing the X to close the window so I thought I would offer to help him finish the task. I assumed his mouse must be dealing with a lag issues and I didn't see a cord connecting it to the computer.

Imagine my surprise when I found out he was using a corded mouse this whole time. I didn't see where it was connected, but he told me to stop pulling on it or it would come off.

I guess it's a Kensington travel mouse or something because it was awkward as hell to use and nowhere near as big as my normal mouse.

I offered to blow on it for him to see if there was any air trapped in the mouse's sensors, but he kept asking me to meet him behind the building and frankly I don't have the time, I wanted to fix it right then and there.

Desktop won't stay on after being charged. HALP?

So I have this problem where I charge my desktop into the outlet. I make sure to plug in everything to charge it all. But the damn thing won't stay on when I unplug it and set it up on the couch or at my local coffee shop without the charging cables. Do I need a better power supply for mobile use? Is my battery dead? Please help, I've even tried charging it for 24 hours.

Need help with Eaton NAS

I'm new to Eaton NAS, and not sure what to do first. My GF insists she's trying to help me out, but really she's just a distraction, lying there in bed naked. I've repeatedly explained to her that my goal is Eaton NAS, and Eaton NAS is what I intend to accomplish today. So I'm turning to the Reddit community for any tips you may have on how to get started. Does anyone here have experience Eaton NAS?

My computer rejected me

I asked Cortana for the date and she said "date not available, try again later."

My computer just fucking rejected me.

I feel so alone.

I said to myself, maybe she's just mad that I didn't configure all the settings upon setup? Maybe she just needs time? But tbh, that's no excuse, I'm a nice guy and deserve some companionship.

TL;DR: Cortana told me she didn't have the time for me and we don't have a date. I'm crushed. Please advise.
