I'm in the process of replacing my Internet-PC and took the opportunity to purchase 2 monitors with a higher resolution. I wanted to attach two PCs to two monitors each as I did with the old monitors because I naively assumed it would work the same way as it did with the old ones, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I suppsoe I have to invest some thoughts about that.
The transfer of my email profile of Thunderbird also doesn't work the way it's described in the internet. Unfortunately Thunderbird doesn't have an import/export function. Let's see how I can I solve this challenge.

Well, at least I was able to overcome the challenge with my email-client.

The challenge with the two monitors is solved by now .

It's quite astonishing how much faster some software (e.g. browser) work on the new PC. It seems it was quite time to replace the old PC.

It's amazing how much time you save if you take the time to research. I wanted to create hyperlinks from a table of lists consisting of several parts. I used Excel for that, but didn't know the syntax for doing it directly there, so I had to include several steps with other software which was time-consuming.

It sounds incredibly time-consuming, Wolfgang, not to mention complicated! I wouldn't know where to start with things like that. Good luck with any further tasks/challenges!
