Raising a number to a power in Microsoft Excel
There are two ways to use exponentiation, i.e., to raise a number to a power in the Microsoft Excel
spreadsheet program. You can use the POWER(number, exponent)
e.g., to raise 2 to the power 3, you could put
a cell which would yield the value 8. Or you can use the exponent operator, the
(shift-6 on a Windows keyboard).
E.g., to calculate 2 raised to the power 3 you could put
in a cell which produces the value 8.
Maximum memory for an HP 3047h Motherboard
A family member said a Windows 10 system she is using for gaming is running
slowly and inquired about adding additional memory to the system. I didn't
know the model of the motherboard in the system nor the maximum amount of
memory it could accomodate. Rather than opening up the desktop system, I
checked on the manufacturer and model of the motherboard from a command-line
interface (CLI) with a
Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) command and
found it was a Hewlett-Packard (HP) 3047h motherboard.

Excluding a file or directory from monitoring and scanning by Acronis Cyber Protect Home

and choose either Add file or Add folder depending on
whether you wish to exclude either an individual file or an entire directory
