  1. Every now and then this alert appears in the Windows 10 notification area. I want to stop it for good. How can I? TIA.
  2. I have the CorelDRAW 2017 suite installed on my PC and it also has its nag pop-up. It's there to, among other things, try to convince me to upgrade to the 2018 version. But–and it's a very importante but–it allows me to reduce its frequency or choose to stop the pop-up altogether: How to change your preferences for the Corel Update Helper – Knowledge Base
  3. Ctrl+S is a command one can use to save a page. It opens the Save as dialog for the page, and Maxthon gives the following options: Webpage, HTML Only Webpage, Complete Web Archive, Single File The command shortcut in question is specific for images on a page, via context menu.
  4. I remember that in previous versions these commands in the image had underlined letters. I am the kind of user that likes things done as fast as possible. So, for instance, if I wanted to use the Close tabs to the left tab menu command, I clicked on a tab to open the context menu and hit the correspondent key (underlined letter). No need to move the mouse again to click on the menu command. I could do this before in Maxthon, but from some versions on the underlined letters are gone. Where can I enable them? N.B.: I have the correspondent setting enabled in Windows 10 (Ease of Access), and Google Chrome's menu shows the underlined letters. Other applications show them too, like CorelDRAW and SoftMaker Office 2018, so I guess it's something with Maxthon only. TIA.
  5. A couple or two versions ago I noticed that when going to the menu then Help > About... the update check runs and reports that Your browser is up to date. But when I went the same way and clicked on the Website link then clicked on the Download Now button, the version the download manager showed was newer than the ones I had installed at these moments. It happened again when I checked using the previous version and now I have 5.2.5.4000 installed. But I had to download it, the auto update didn't work.
  6. I never download and install beta versions. I have searched before posting, found nothing.
  7. karajan, it's a great solution for the tab case, so much so that I've just set keyboard shortcuts to close all left and right tabs. Thank you! But you see, some things are still around. For instance, whenever I want to save an image from a site, I click on it to open the context menu and hit S to open the Save image as... dialog. I hit S because it was the underlined letter long ago and I have it in my memory–and it still works! I have no idea what are the underlined letters for the other options in the menu, so I have to use the mouse to launch them.
  8. I use the portable version on my laptop. But that's not the point. I think we users should have clear and simple options to stop anyhing annoying to us, don't you agree?
  9. Both options are now unchecked, but it's still showing up.
  10. Dunno if it's some UI thing or something else, but v5.2.5.1000 shows on a new tab a series of numbered copies of the Featured and Blank groups.
  11. rick.lane, I uninstalled and reinstalled Maxthon to check and you're absolutely right! My bad! I guess I installed previously without my eyeglasses, so I didn't see the Advanced button...
  12. After I install Maxthon, I go to Settings > General, uncheck At startup, check if its icon is abnormal, then I delete its desktop shortcut, go to C:\Program Files\Maxthon#\Bin\ and select Maxthon via mouse/context menu to pin it to the taskbar. A lot of work that could be avoided! ► I think Maxthon should give users the option to choose, during the installation, if they want a desktop shortcut or not, like many other apps do. And at this point it should have the option to pin it to the taskbar. ■ I don't like to have a lot of shortcuts on the Windows desktop, so I organize my stuff this way: Windows Desktop - shortcuts for apps I use frequently but not every day (office package, CorelDRAW, etc.) Windows Taskbar - shortcuts for apps I use or need to access quickly every day (browsers, music player, etc.)
  13. Dear rick.lane, I said that FYI only, so you all could get the whole scenario, since I didn't before and you mentioned these other browsers in your first answer. BTW whenever I install(ed) Maxthon I never set it as the default browser and I always keep it that way in its settings. As I couldn't find anything about it on Maxthon's interface, I thought the alert we're talking about here might be somehow hard coded within Maxthon. So when it showed up today I found in the Windows 10 Task Manager there was this MxUp app running and its properties informed it's located in C:\Users\XXXXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Maxthon5\Public\MxUp (where XXXXXXXX is my user name in the system). The folder has a config file that reads: [Maxthon] LastStart=20180810083950 tips=0 RepairShortcutTime=1 SetDefaultTime=1534164871 RepairTime=1532949660 [MxHotnews] interval=-1 Here's the guy! Now I wonder how I can stop it.
  14. I said: "Every now and then this alert appears in the Windows 10 notification area", so it's clear that my system is Windows 10. My default browser is Chrome, I rarely open Edge and I use Maxthon with sites Google's browser is not good at, and for some Maxthon native resources, like closing tabs by double-clicking, Boss Key and others. AFAIK Windows never tries to change my default browser, it only shows some pop-up suggestion for me to do so, but, apart from this little intrusiveness, it's not a system-wide pop-up like Maxthon's, since it only shows up on some Microsoft websites. But the most important thing here for me is that I know my default browser is not at risk, so I don't want Maxthon to now and then interrupt me with such a creepy warning.
