What versions of Adobe Reader are currently in use at corporations?
Adobe has a policy of supporting the current major release of Acrobat and Reader (11 at the time I write this) and the two versions preceding it (9 and 1 currently). Almost all of our corporate customers are on one of those versions. Every once in a while we run into a customer trying to get by with an unsupported version because they have some in-house plug-in or script they don't want to update because it has always used unsupported hacks or they don't have the source code anymore.
Are the various alternatives to Adobe Acrobat nothing more than watered down versions of the actual Acrobat program but with a different UI?
Uhmm which version of Adobe Acrobat italic do you mean ? Adobe italic has changed Acrobat italic interface so often and so drastically it almost hard to keep up with. For example below you can see the 4 incarnations of form editing in Acrobat 8 9 1 (X) italic and DC italic I agree with you to some extent that the most recent version ( DC italic ) does look a bit awkward with all these big and often colourful buttons. The reason behind it is that Adobe italic expects more and more users to have touch interfaces available to them in stead of mouse and full-blown keyboards. So theyre gearing towards a more tactile italic design. Another reason for Acrobat italic to have sported so many interfaces lies in the fact that the application needs to cater for the most various kinds of users from typical office workers to designers and print workflow operators. Office people are well-acquainted with the ribbon-ridden Microsoft Office italic applications. Designers are more familiar with all those panels palettes tabs and windows. Trying to cater for both makes Acrobat italic 3 well like the name implies 3 an acrobat italic ! Some independently developed and sold tools like PDF Element italic s clearly bundle some of the most popular features of Acrobat italic in a much cleaner interface. Apps like GoodReader italic s perform specific tasks likementing much better (and earlier) on tablets than Adobe Reader italic did. So there's absolutely something to be said for these separate tools ! I wouldn call their approach watered-down but cherry-picking. italic And while Adobe italic is endorsing their Acrobat DC italic subscription models these tools and apps are still available as a purchased license (with a fair period of updates).
If I haven't used my 11 inch laptop for 4 months, how long do you think the updates will take?
If you have a regular spin drive in it a long time. If you have a solid state drive (SSD) in it about half that. Depends on what your laptop needs and if the creator's update is installed which is pretty big. Microsoft has done a better job of getting updates over in a couple of large sessions but you still have time to check out a movie or something. Just updates in the search in the bottom left corner of the desktop and check for updates shoulde up. Keep running it until it says you are all caught up. if you are paranoid like I am you can image your current windows install before doing any of the huge creator's updates because sometimes they can mess a few things up. Lately though they have been fine.
Which apps are you proud of having in your phone and why (apps which you use daily and find quite useful)?
Mobile phones have be the major part of human life and if we talk about applications then these are bing the body parts. We cannot think without some of application. My favorite application Quora- Quora was co-founded by two formerFacebookemployeesAdam D'AngeloandCharlie Cheever. D'Angelo resigned from his position at Facebook in January 21 to create said that he and Cheever were inspired to create Quora because we thought that Q & A is one of those areas on the internet where there are a lot of sitesbut no one hade along and built something that was really good yet. Quora is really very much addictive even then games and movies. Evernote- Free with premium plans billed monthlyEvernote is your list keeper note taker voice recorder to-do manager webpageclipper and all-around digital multi-tool. It's overwhelming at first but you'll quickly find a vast number of ways to put it to good use. My favorite feature isoptical character recognition (OCR) which makes in photos searchable. Facebook messenger- The trouble with most messaging platforms is that they require you to enlist your friends to join as well. Not sowith Facebook Messenger because most of the living (and even the recentlydeceased) population already has a Facebook account. Facebook Messenger is loaded with bells and whistles notably a huge library of stickers video and voice calling and theability to send SMS messages. This appis also surprisingly privacy conscious. You don't need an account to use the app entering a phone number is optional and you can send secret messages that use end-to-endencryptionso neither the FBI nor Facebook can read them. Google Drive - a Google Drive isn't just acloud storage service. In addition to syncing and storing your files Google Drive includes a powerful mobile office suite so you can create and edit files from your phone. Drive can even store your files locally for offline viewing and editing. It might not replace your desktop office utilities but ites surprisingly close. Last pass - Humans are bad at passwords and we're bad at remembering things. Thankfully there arepassword managerslike LastPass. With a password manager the app generates uniqueplex passwords for each site or app that requires one. When you need to log in LastPass fills in the correct information even filling it in in other apps. LastPass also securely stores your personal information so youcan quickly fill out tedious forms and includes mechanisms to safely share passwords with other peopleeven after you've departed this mortal realm. Netflix - a Free plans begin at $ a monthWhen ites to mobile video streaming Netflix is hard to beat. It boasts a massive (if unstable) library of TV shows and movies putting a world of entertainment in your hand. Netflix is also leading the way among streaming services by producing critically-acclaimed original programming likeLuke CageNarcosThe OA andStranger Things to name but a few. It even offers a decent selection ofstreaming animetitles. It's an app that'sno longer just about killing time. It's alsoabout keeping up with the conversation about the latest hit shows. The fact that it now lets you download (some) showsfor offline viewing is a huge recent advance for the service. Pics Art - When you think of mobile image editingyou probably think of a certain Facebook-owned property modeled after old timey cameras. I'm talking aboutInstagram in case you couldn't tell. But where Instagram ends PicsArt Photo Studio begins bringing not just filters but many more powerful tools. And if you're already a fan of Insta you can share your PicsArt creations there to the envy of all your followers.

What is the first thing you install on a new windows system?
Before installation I have split the hard disk into at least 2 partitions although partition management is not the topic here. After a clean Windows installation I also tweak Windows for performance depending on the Windows version - using either Windows Control panel options or some VB scripts and registry tweaks. Then these are the programs I install Windows updates including Microsoft Security updates italic and Windows service packs italic using Windows update . italic Proprietary drivers Any existing drivers for devices. Driver updates I use a program like Advanced driver updater italic (trial Advanced Driver Updater ) or IOBit Driver Booster italic (trial Free Windows 1 Drivers Update PC Drivers ) which automatically download the latest versions of drivers for all system devices. While only the full versions automatically install drivers they can save a lot of time looking up drivers. (For example after a recent clean install of Windows 8 the drivers for 3 devices were not being automatically installed by Windows and the devices simply showed as Base System device in the Control Panel. The process to work out the correct drivers is tedious - it takes figuring out the Vendor and Hardware ID and then manually looking for the right drivers which takes a lot of time. IOBIT Driver Booster did this task in the click of a button. As some tech support experts may guess they were the drivers for an SD card reader.) Antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials italic has improved a lot and is enough nowadays. (free Free Virus Protection with Microsoft Security Essentials s ) Then there is some software which is probably just as essential namely Java (free) Directly from Sun website. ( Download Free Java Software s ) Adobe Flash player (free) Directly from Adobe website. ( Adobe Flash Player s ) Essential utilities WinRAR (free) Windows does supportpressed folders but this is better and supports many more formats. ( WinRAR archiver a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files ) IrfanView + plugins (free) The best freeware utility for viewing pictures. ( one of the most popular viewers worldwide ) CCleaner (free) A handy tool for cleanup and some system tweaks. ( CCleaner - Free Download - Piriform s ) Revo Uninstaller (free) An uninstallation manager which also monitors new installations. Not totally essential but useful. ( Revo Uninstaller ) Thenes the browser and office applications Mozilla Firefox (free) I don tend to use IE as Mozilla is better in my opinion. ( Browse Freely s ) Firefox add-ons Mostly privacy-protecting ones such as HTTP everywhere italic (free) at the bare minimum. Extra ones include AdBlock plus italic (free) BetterPrivacy italic (free) and Disconnect italic (free) . ( italic Add-ons for Firefox italic s ) italic Microsoft Office (trial) It usually an essential for most users. Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) Another office essential. ( Adobe Acrobat Reader DC s ) Finally for home use some people might optionally install multimedia applications such as Media players such as iTunes italic (free iTunes - Download iTunes Now s ) Winamp italic (free It really whips the llama's ass! ) JRiver Media Center italic (trial JRiver Media Center - Download s ) MediaMonkey italic (free MediaMonkey Download ) etc. based on personal choice. Video player + codec packs Media Player Classic italic is a great choice and contains both codecs and a video payer. (free Downloads ub7 MPC-HC s ) Nero For CD burning. (trial Nero 216 Platinum - Award-winning all-rounder s ) Skype For making phone calls. (free Download Skype for Desktop Computer | Skype s ) eBook reader IceCream reader italic (free Ebook Reader free MOBI and EPUB reader for Windows ) and Adobe Digital Editions italic (free Download | Adobe Digital Editions s ) are my top choices. What not to install Firewall Windows Defender has improved significantly in the latest Windows versions. I previously install ZoneAlarm italic but it not as essential any more. Defrag tools Windows has improved its disk management and it only slows down system performance. Registry cleaning tools Same as above not needed.
What are must have applications you should install first on Windows?
Well the first thing should be setting up email. You have a choice whether to use the Windows 1 email client or install something else like Outlook or Thunderbird. Probably check you might want an office application like MS Office one of the free ones. You probably want an antivirus or malware like Malwarebytes. Also Adobe reader is a often used application. Remember there are almost always free alternatives to paid software. Sometimes though paying for software unlocks more features. Things like virus software sometimes paying for premium give you real time protection. That means the virus is prevented from installing rather then having to do a scan after the virus is installed.
