Hi,
I remember someone asking on the insiders subgroup a few days ago -
forwarded it there in hopes that someone did save the link to the file.
Cheers,

Hey Dave.
Just like a coin, everything in live has a heads and a taile or is it tail.
Or in short everything in life has a good side and a bad side.
But here’s to the positive of life and not the negative.
Merry Christmas to all.

Hi all,

 

Sometimes, it is helpful to look at the downsides of Windows 10 ecosystem, and the article (linked below) captures this well. As a Windows Insider, I myself agree that overall tactic from Microsoft when it came to upgrade notifications was aggressive at times (you may remember a discussion several months ago regarding GWX and others).

 

Article link:

Microsoft admits it was too aggressive about Windows 10 (PC Mag):

http://www.pcmag.com/news/350584/microsoft-admits-it-was-too-aggressive-about-windows-10

 

The reason for posting this is to demonstrate that, like anything else, Windows 10 has both positive and negative things to talk about, and also for a chance for us to think about what we are facing.

Cheers,

Re: Brian Vogel's Step-by-Step Instructions "Greatest Hits"

Mr. Ed
 

Hi Brian,

I went and click on some of your to do links. After downloading and opening up your link in word they open up in protective view. I do have a little vision and was able to click on enable editing then I was able to read the document. Now hear is my question. How do you click on the link with Jaws to enable editing button with Jaws?

Ed, and all others asking about access to these lists.  I will repost the entire collection following this little tutorial of sorts that won't be much of a tutorial.  Each and every one of these sets of instructions is presented as a link.  Activating that link will trigger the corresponding file to download to your computer.  I cannot say whether that means it will go to your Downloads folder or elsewhere because I can't know who has the "Always ask me where to save a file" setting turned on in their favorite web browser.

After the file is downloaded it's an MS-Word file like any other that you can simply select, activate the selected file, and have it open in MS-Word.  If you do not have Microsoft Office the Word format files will also open in Open Office or Libre Office (and several other alternative office suites) if this is what you have on your computer.

That being said, here's the list of links again just so you have them in this message and don't have to dig up the two old ones to find the links:

No.  For heaven's sake, it takes two minutes, if that, to go through the list of links.  The title of each makes its purpose, platform, and time period self evident.

Hi,

This clears up a lot of things, and apologies for my wording before…

Yes, the wiki is set up so that members of this forum can edit (we don’t want public vandalism).

To edit a post, you’ll first need to log in. Go to groups.io homepage, then look for a link that says, “log in” or “sign in” (one of these should work). Then enter your email address once the form comes up. Then you’ll be asked to set up a password (perhaps another form once you press ENTER after entering your email address). Set up the password. Alternatively, you can log into the web interface if you have a Gmail or a Facebook account (if so, you can use links that invites you to log in using these credentials).

Once you log in, go to the wiki page (win10.groups.io/g/win10/wiki), then if you wish to edit a page, go to that page and go to edit control (a button or a link I believe). Then you can edit wiki pages.

Cheers,

Joseph

It is very difficult to get all of this when your answers are aimed at a person who is well above my level of experience.

Hi everyone,

 

For those who are new to this forum and subgroups: we actually do have a wiki:

https://win10.groups.io/g/win10/wiki

 

Although this wiki is minimalist compared to wikis on other forums, I believe it is time to change that. The proposals for new pages are:

 

  • Brian’s tutorials: I believe that it would be helpful to place Brian’s tutorial links under one roof (a wiki page with links to his tutorials).
  • Comparison between stable builds: for some time, I thought about a wiki page that would present feature differences between stable builds, namely new settings, limitations and so on. Any thoughts on this?

 

Note that in order to edit wiki pages, you need to have ability to access the web interface. For best presentation results, I use Markdown to format wiki pages.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi everyone,

 

For those who are new to this forum and subgroups: we actually do have a wiki:

https://win10.groups.io/g/win10/wiki

 

Although this wiki is minimalist compared to wikis on other forums, I believe it is time to change that. The proposals for new pages are:

 

  • Brian’s tutorials: I believe that it would be helpful to place Brian’s tutorial links under one roof (a wiki page with links to his tutorials).
  • Comparison between stable builds: for some time, I thought about a wiki page that would present feature differences between stable builds, namely new settings, limitations and so on. Any thoughts on this?

 

Note that in order to edit wiki pages, you need to have ability to access the web interface. For best presentation results, I use Markdown to format wiki pages.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

So, are all of these files for Win 10 AFTER the Anniversary update?

Ed, and all others asking about access to these lists.  I will repost the entire collection following this little tutorial of sorts that won't be much of a tutorial.  Each and every one of these sets of instructions is presented as a link.  Activating that link will trigger the corresponding file to download to your computer.  I cannot say whether that means it will go to your Downloads folder or elsewhere because I can't know who has the "Always ask me where to save a file" setting turned on in their favorite web browser.

After the file is downloaded it's an MS-Word file like any other that you can simply select, activate the selected file, and have it open in MS-Word.  If you do not have Microsoft Office the Word format files will also open in Open Office or Libre Office (and several other alternative office suites) if this is what you have on your computer.

That being said, here's the list of links again just so you have them in this message and don't have to dig up the two old ones to find the links:

Article (PC Mag): Microsoft admits it was too aggressiveabout Windows 10

 

Hi all,

 

Sometimes, it is helpful to look at the downsides of Windows 10 ecosystem, and the article (linked below) captures this well. As a Windows Insider, I myself agree that overall tactic from Microsoft when it came to upgrade notifications was aggressive at times (you may remember a discussion several months ago regarding GWX and others).

 

Article link:

Microsoft admits it was too aggressive about Windows 10 (PC Mag):

http://www.pcmag.com/news/350584/microsoft-admits-it-was-too-aggressive-about-windows-10

 

The reason for posting this is to demonstrate that, like anything else, Windows 10 has both positive and negative things to talk about, and also for a chance for us to think about what we are facing.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

Brian sent these as links. Eventually I’ll transfer them over to our forum wiki (giving Brian the credit he deserves).

Hi Brian,

Could you please explain to me as I am and old geezer how to get to these instructions that you and Joseph are talking about.  I think it would be really good if you could give step by step how to get to these instructions on how to do  different things that you have put together.

The reason I am suggestion this is I am sure there are a lot of us on this list that our not computer techie’s that would appreciate this information.

Joseph,

         I'd also respectfully ask that several of the things indirectly related to the Win10 ecosystem, e.g., using ribbons under Windows, the items related to using MS-Office, be included as well.  I'm not sure how focused you're thinking of "directly."  These things span Windows ecosystems, and some even deal with older versions of Office, but things really haven't changed much in those arenas and questions arise on these repeatedly.
