Can't Upload Photos to Google Maps

The uploading of images when you write a review on Google Maps is not working for many people.

You will have to use the "Your Contributions" option.

Search for a premises on Google Maps and write a review in text. Click the "Done" button.

Go to the top left and see the three horizontal lines icon.

Click "Your Contributions" button.

Click "Reviews" tab.

Cursor down until you find the review you just wrote - the name of the company. Click on the name.

A Google Maps web page will open. Click the "Add a photo" button at the bottom.

Open your Picture folder. Drag your image onto the popup that opened. Click "Done" button.

Click the "Reviews" tab. Cursor down to the company you reviewed and click the name of the premises. You will see your image at the bottom of your review text.

The picture is on Google Maps it can take a week for it to appear in a normal search.

Google is starting to fade out review images. This is how Google does things. It stops things working properly. Then, after a year or so it announces a feature is gone.

If you look at reviews that show pictures you will see that they are a few years old.

Google Maps is starting to cut out the images on new reviews in the box on the left side of map views, even if they are visible in the photos tab.

There is a way to get over the problem.  Create a shortcut to your Picture folder on the Desktop and drag it onto the Start taskbar.  url

Canary Browser Has Stopped Working - Will Not Open

Canary browser stops opening try Chrome 64 portable.
Try Chrome 64 Browser

Canary browser can suddenly stop working on some laptops and PCs. There seems to be no fix for this issue. Believe me I have tried everything, old restore points, choosing Windows 8 compatibility, uninstalling/reinstalling both Canary and Chrome - nothing works. Oddly, I have another laptop and PC and Canary browser continues to work on them.
Chrome 64bit portable
Ah well, we will have to move forward. Windows 10 is c..p anyway. Are you aware that Windows 10 has been completely rewritten since the free upgrade. It looks the same but it is as different as IOS. 

I recommend you download and try Chrome 64 Portable. Yes there is a 64bit version out there.

     The download link is on the Portable Apps webpage.

     The direct download link is here

I hope your computing is bug free.
Good Luck!

WYSIWYG Webbuilder is Not Compatible With Windows 10

Will not run, will not operate correctly, error, not working
WYSIWYG Webbuilder is not compatible with Windows 10.  It will not operate correctly.  It runs very slowly, does not respond and whites out.  The developers of WB must act soon or they will go out of business.
WYSIWYG Webbuilder 11
If you make a new post in WB community and it contains words such "will not work", "does not operate correctly" and so on it will be removed.  However, you cannot hide or run from the truth.  The software is incompatible.

WYSIWYG Webbuilder it still taking money from people.  They know they are stealing!

The Windows 10 free upgrade was okay.  WB did work with that operating system.  Microsoft has secretly rewritten the whole Windows 10 system.  It looks the same as the free upgrade but underneath, it is absolutely, totally different.

It is possible that WB will be hit with legal action.  If people pay and lock themselves into the WB system they could suffer monetary loss in the near future when they are unable to effectively edit their sites.
