Re: windows defender on your desk top on the creators update

 

Actually there is a way to do itfrom settings
winkey i hit end hit tab.
hit down arrow once hit enter hit tab then hit space and it opens.
Or on the system trey rightclick the actions recomended and hit enter and it opens.
It does more than your security and antivirus, refresh on demand, network bits and bobs, and system health.

Well, it still works when I activate it.  You immediately (or as long as your computer takes to process the request) have a save dialog pop up to let you put the MS-Word document with the instructions where you want them on your computer.  If it's not doing the same for you I can't explain it, as this is still on my Google drive.

Re: Clearing Calendar alerts and Reminders

 

Well to be honest while I have outlook set with icloud and the callendar, I have a google callendar and so does my dad, its linked with the callendar app, and it seems to be weather linked to as long as location is on, I can get my weather on the fly and I can know if its going to rain on a day I am walking.

Folks,

I’m using Windows 10, JAWS 18, and Outlook 2016.

Earlier, I had a calendar event pop up in my Outlook. Though I easily was able to gain focus to that window by either alt+tabbing, or by using my open items list with JAWS key+F10, once in the window, I was able to focus on the list view containing the calendar events, but I couldn’t figure out the hot keys for snoozing, or for dismissing, let alone, dismissing all. I had to use the jaws cursor, and was able to then manually click on the icon of choice.

I definitely remember that there were shortcut keys for dismissing, dismissing all, and snoozing, but I don’t remember them.

I thought it was something like ctrl+insert+G, but I know that isn’t right, as that command is how you auto graphic label. I vividly remember it being something with the letter G, as in golf, but I just don’t remember the specifics.

Can someone please refresh my memory?

Re: windows10 password and Microsoft account

 

Well while I am not signing in with an ms account I do have ms and google apps linked through various accounts.

I don't get settings sync and a few storage features, however I get most account features from my local account and I know they will only activate when apps needing cloud access are loaded.

One could establish a Windows 10 user account that's linked to an existing Microsoft account using completely different user names.

Once a Windows 10 user account is linked to a specific Microsoft Account you can change the password on one, the other, or both and the link remains.

My passwords on my Windows 10 account, which does use the same e-mail address as my Microsoft Account, are different. I changed the password on the Microsoft Account subsequent to establishing both when I first got into Windows 10 during the Insiders Program during the pre-release-to-the-public period and just did so again minutes ago. Since doing so I have restarted my computer and the password for my Windows 10 user account remains exactly as it was and the link between it and the Microsoft Account is unbroken.

Re: tried installing update.

 

Well there is a next button,

Hit it.

Then there should be a whole lot of checkboxes telling you what you can switch off and on.

Then another next button, then a finnish button.

You may be stuck on the account name of your account if thats the thing you just have to hit enter on that you don't need to tab round unless you change your account.

Actually, your Windows 10 user account password and your Microsoft Account password can be entirely different.

Re: Virtual PC cursor being very inconsistent in Outlook 2016: what in the world!

If this be of any help, it does the same thing in Win 10 Mail.

OK. It’s official. I’m baffled.

 

In Windows 10, non-creator or insider build, mind you, with Outlook 2016, I’m all of a sudden having a really strange issue.

 

This all started about a month ago. Outlook was acting really goofy when I tried to open up any message in my gmail inbox. As soon as I’d hit enter to open the message, I visually could tell it opened, but I couldn’t arrow through the content of the message, try as I might.

 

Usually the fix was to hit escape to close the message, which would land me back in my inbox still sitting on that message. If I then opened the message again by pressing enter, my virtual PC cursor would be activated, and I could then use all virtual PC cursor web navigation as usual to read the content.

 

OK, now, fast forward to about a day ago. I installed the ICloud utility which automatically sets up an ICloud e-mail account, and also syncs down all your contacts, calendars, and reminders. I seriously doubt that’s rellavent to my following problem, but I wanted to at least throw that out there before continuing simply to say, it’s the only thing I even remotely can think that I’ve changed or modified which might have done something, but again as I said, that’s incredibly unlikely.

 

So now, regardless which inbox I’m in, Gmail which is my default, or ICloud, doesn’t matter, some e-mail messages lately, in fact quite a few of them, are not letting the virtual PC cursor in JAWS 18 become activated.

 

This is just nuts puzzling! I seriously don’t get this!

 

The only theory I have is that maybe those messages were written in plain text instead of rich text HTML, but I seriously don’t believe that to be the case.

 

I don’t have any of those messages I could share as an example, and ethicly speaking, even if I did, I wouldn’t feel comfortable forwarding them without the sender’s soul permission first.

 

I’ve tried countless times closing and reopening the messages, but that yields no success whatsoever.

 

I’ve ran a repair of JAWS, but that didn’t help. I even did so and deleted all user settings, not to be confused with shared settings. I don’t want to do that, as I have other VFO products installed, and doing so would cause them to crash.

 

I tried hitting insert+Z but that tells me virtual PC cursor unavailable. I further have tried pressing insert+escape to refresh the screen mottle buffer, but again, no dice.

 

The even stranger thing about this  is, even though I don’t have a virtual PC cursor, I still can up and down arrow through the message content with just the plain PC cursor, and can read it just fine. If I see a link in the message, I’m unsure if hitting enter would activate it, since I’m technically not in virtual browse mode, sota speak.

 

Neither am I sure if query commands like insert+F6 for headings, insert+F7 for links, etc. would work; I’ve not honestly tried.

 

Does anyone have any earthly inkling of an idea what in the tarnation might be going on here? As I said, I’m pullin’ my hair out, trying to figure this out. It just! doesn’t! make any sense!

 

Chris.



Moving MS Exchange account from Win 10 Mail into Outlook

Ben J. Bloomgren
 

Hey all,


Based on my response to another thread about Outlook, I'm growing more and more aware of how awesome MS Outlook is. I've got a problem though.


In Windows 10 Mail, I've set up my MS Exchange email and calendar. They work brilliantly, but I can't seem to get them to work in Outlook. I was under the impression that Win10 Mail backboned off of Outlook.

Re: Off-Central Topic: TalkingArch Linux Distribution

Brion,


Yes I have plaied with it several times and it works well and if you follow the directions in the wiki you can get a basic system up and running in no time.  I had another play with this just yesterday and the only problem which I am still pusseled about is the fact that though I can get orca running and there is sound in gnome, orca speech is not even working but there is speech in the text interface or conciale as they say.  it is really strange.

Hello All,

          I am not attempting to start an ongoing conversation about this in this forum both because it's off the central topic and I have not yet played with TalkingArch Linux.  I did, however, believe that there are a few "geeky types" who read here who might just want to do some exploration of this distro if they've wondered about Linux.  A friend on BleepingComputer.com sent me this private message a short while ago:

I was wondering if you have heard of TalkingArch. It is a Linux distro aimed at the visually handicapped. Here is one link https://talkingarch.tk/about.php

As you can see from this description here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/TalkingArch it has Braille support. I don't know if this is something that could help you but I was thinking that if you had a spare partition you can install it and play with it, maybe it is something that you can use for your clients.
