Hello. I have no real technical knowledge of computers. But had an inclination to ask myself the question... "I wonder how much video ram, does my old (handmedown) system have?" So I duckduckgo'd the following question... "how to find how much video memory I have in linux?" And was the first site in the results list. So I simply clicked the link And it brought me to this web page - I scrolled down to the linux part and did what it suggested. And I got the results (and answer) to my query. The instructions explained was easy enough for me to execute. And the results I got appeared like magic. Now all I have to do is learn what all the results mean. Thanks Computer Hope. You run a Top Notch web site. Thanks to those who read this. Have a great day. Byeee :). (Newbie)

From my days of having to use at least some Windows to my current happy all-linux computer use, Computer Hope has consistently zeroed in on the very problem I'm searching for a solution for (although you probably can't help with grammar tangles).

Thanks again, ComputerHope!. (Earlynerd)

After reading your solution to my "touch pad not working" problem, and realising I've been turning off my touch pad by accidentally hitting Fn and the command to turn it off... I feel quite stupid. But also very relieved that there never really was an issue with my computer. Thank you very much!. (Caroline)

I'm retired from a career in IT, so I'm familiar with many IT-related acronyms as well as much of the information presented in this piece and all of your other explanations. (I hope I didn't lose you in that long sentence.) I needed a web-related error message explained. I used DuckDuckGo and here I am. I got the information I needed. It was clearly the best explanation of web stuff that I have ever received. I roamed around landing on several more pages. Really good stuff! I'm going to save your url for future reference, and I will attempt to get through to my grandson in college. He is not that open to learning anything from a pre-boomer. He became a genius, not to mention The World's Greatness Authority..., the moment he received his college acceptance letters. But I digress. Take comfort in the fact that I will not copy this and paste it in your other pages. Happy Thanksgiving, if you are in or from the U.S.A. Best wishes to all. This is a great site! Jan. (Jancrawf)

I have been unable to resize the Dashlane application (password manager) for months, since a major version release; it does not respond to the mouse to resize at the edge or top/bottom of the window. I searched Google using the following string: "dashlane can't resize application window" A link to your article was the first under the [People also ask] section. This is a simple and elegant solution that took me way back to early Windows days. Thanks for the reminder. I am going to add an FAQ to Dashlane's user forum and link to this article. Thank you.
