Game controller for 8-year-old granddaughter-- Windows base

I am not tech savvy. I'm 86 years old and my 8-year-old great-granddaughter wants to play games on my Windows 10 based laptop. I assume I need to purchase a game controller. I looked online and most of the game controllers are for Xbox. Since this is our first Venture into games I don't want to spend a ton of money for a fancy controller. Your suggestions are welcome.

RE: Interstate rest area stops

Not CAMP but rest for 8 to 10 hours OK. However we like Walmart or some of the other free camping because they have less noise. Check out Free Camping

RE: Mobely / 3G shut down????

In July 2021 I replaced my Sick Mobely with a Netgear Unite Explore 815S 4G LTE Mobile Wifi Hotspot I purchased on eBay. Took the SIM card out of Mobely and put in the Netgear. Call AT&T to have them match the SIM card to the new device. All worked VERY WELL. Some features I like better on the Mobely and some I like better on the Netgear. Note: I could not get the AT&T Spark to work even after a number of calls to At&T

New Brunswick – – – mid-October

We are planning a trip to New England in a 35-foot 5th wheel to see the fall colors around mid-October. We are thinking about also making a trip up to New Brunswick to see Bay of Fundy and the Hopewell rocks. Tried to get reservations at Fundy National Park with no joy. 1. Looking for an inexpensive campground (since I expect we are only looking for a place to sleep since we will be seeing the sights more than staying at the campground) that would be open this time a year. I have checked out Campendium. Nothing really exciting to turn me on. 2. Also looking for anything classified as “must-see” or “must do”. 3. We may spend a night or 2 at Mispec Beach which I understand is only a parking lot. Any information on overnight at this beach is welcome.

RE: Help with Mobley device

When my Mobley died last May, went through 3 different SIM cards trying to get Mobley to work. Final I got a NetGear AirCard 815S. eBay $10.00 (?) Put last SIM card in -- call TechSupport wait 30 minutes for some one to come on line. Had him match the SIM card to the NetGear All work very well. Much faster than Mobley. Currenty 25Mbs download. The NetGear is powered by USB port

RE: Mr Buddy Heater Permanent Install?

The only problem I have had with the Big Buddy heater is there is NO thermostat. It is either too hot or too cold.

RE: flex and seal plumbing repair

Since the sewer line is not under pressure you may want to Google for "Insta-Clamp Plumbing Repair Clamp"

HP 2420 "dirty" baxkground

On my last trip I took my HP LaserJet 2420dn printer with me now when I try to printer a page, I get a dirty background. See the attached photocopy of a blank page. Do you have any suggestions on what could cause this? I followed HP instructions on how to make a cleaning page and ran the cleaning page through the unit with no joy. Could it be that the toner cartridge got shook up in transit? Should I replace the toner? "border=0" For Full-Size Image.

RE: Huron National Forest Dispersed Camping?

If possible do a day trip in a car and check it out before trying to drive the RV into a road that you may regret .

RE: Tybee Island Fine Me Beach

Most beaches don't allow dogs, so I have no problem with these rules. I'll bet it's a nice clean beach! I do NOT want dog **** in my beach nor broken glass to cut my foot.

RE: Towing With Water Pump Switched On. Burn Up Pump??

Wile it is OK to leave it on. I WOULD NOT because if from some reason some water is accidently turn on wile towing you could have a real problem. My friend left his cat in the 5er while towing and somehow the cat turn on the kitchen water and the sink overflowed because the stopper was in the sink and the water ended up on the kitchen floor. The pump emptied the freshwater tank. It only takes a few seconds to turn on the pump when you stop. Depending on the age of the children you can teach them to turn it on and off at each stop.

RE: email from to were blocked.

I have use Thundbird for a few years also. The only thing I did not like about it is that it is somewhat complicated to specify where on your HD you store your messages. Not imposable, but complicated. I like to keep my "C" drive for programs ONLY and my "F" drive for all my data. This makes backing up and restoring from my backup simple for me. eM Client serves my needs better than Thurdbird.

RE: email from to were blocked.

Maybe I should have said that I use eM Client as my mail handleing software. I does an outstanding job of blocking spam. Once you get spam simply "move to junk and block domain" No more spam from that source. Plus I can store important messages on my local HD I only need to block 1 or 2 spammers a month now. I almost never logins to the AOL website.

RE: Win 10 remove weather shortcut from taskbar ????

To turn it off completely, right click on a blank space in the task bar. Click on News and interests. Select Turn off. I looked 3 days for that. THANKS

Win 10 remove weather shortcut from taskbar ????

Windows 10 On the taskbar right side by the date/time is a "icon"- shortcut that shows the weather. Since I connect using my Mobley cell phone service, this weather is for a location 100's of miles from my actual location. Is there a way to remove this shortcut?

Hiring Bernie Madoff as a trust company??

Since I travel full time, my domicile is South Dakota. Most of my assets are in a revocable trust. The current trust specifies that after my death a family member will be the new trustee. I am concerned that the funds in this trust will be so tempting that the family member may embezzle some of the funds. I am thinking about appointing as successor trustee a trust company in South Dakota. My problem is how do I ensure that this new company that I am hiring will not be another Bernie Madoff? I have searched the Internet and the only information I can find is that the trust company must have $1 million insurance. If the company has a few hundred clients this 1 million-dollar insured policy is not going to be able to cover any serious embezzlement.

New laptop--- clone hard drive?

My laptop HP an Elitebook 8770w (2017?) is beginning to have a few mechanical problems. The screen is cracked and the CD drive is not working. Instead of repairing this laptop I have found a very good price for a recondition one. My question: . Since the new to me laptop is the same make and model can I simply swap out my old hard drive with the new to me laptop? If I desire to have a larger, faster SSD hard drive can I simply clone my old hard drive into the new SSD drive. Either these solutions will save me days of reinstalling all my old programs.
