Re: showing folder and file sizes

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

I have used Details view as my only view for years now, and it does show file sizes, but it does not show folder sizes.  The size field is blank for a folder.

The last solution you described will make the change permanent, correct?
I think that this is what both the original questioner wants and what I
would prefer also.

I think you can close the prompt, but I honestly can't remember. I removed
the plugin. Go to plugins in preferences, select portable music (I think, as
I said mine is gone so I don't quite remember)..you can uninstall it from
there.

Re: importing FireFox bookmarks into the new Edge

Mary Otten
 

I have found, like many others, that there are times when I use Chrome, because I'm having problems getting what I need from a page using FireFox. And you are right. I'd like to have all my bookmarks in one place that I can look at all at once. that's why I was happy when I found I could import my Safari bookmarks done with the phone into fireFox, and they all integrate into what's already there. Very nice.


Mary


Re: importing FireFox bookmarks into the new Edge

 

Both Chrome and Edge are perfectly capable of importing the bookmarks, I think it's more the fact that they appear in a separate folder which from what you said before you don't like.
You can of course move them, it would take a bit of doing, but it's possible.
Quite a few people on various lists feel that one needs to have several browsers, I work online all the time and personally find that a chromium based browser like Google chrome or Edge works just fine for me.
I think if Firefox does all you want and you like using it there is little reason to change.

Mike,

Your description of why you use 2 browsers, or perhaps more, is exactly why I was interested in getting my bookmarks into Edge. that way, I could have 2 browsers with the bookmarks; hence my disappointment at the apparently inability of these browsers to import FF bookmarks.

I've always found that there is no practical way to limit oneself to a
single browser if you don't want to limit your web possibilities.
Certain browsers show certain web pages or sites better; and, when I
discover that, I try to use that browser for that site or page if I
use it regularly.

Hello,

I hope you get this. The only way I’ve found to make tings go into regular favorites is to organize your favorites. To do this, go into favorites and hit o until you hear JAWS say, “Organize favorites.” Then, go to your favorites bar folder, might have to press right arrow to open that. Move each wrongly placed item one at a time into the normal folder of favorites. I haven’t done this in a while, but I think the key shortcut is alt m but am not sure—JAWS will tell you if your access keys and tutor messagges are both on. That’s a lot better than opening each favorite, adding it to favorites that way, and repeating. Now for sorting, place your cursor on any favorite. Press the applications key—to the left of the right CTRL key, arrow up to sort by name—also having the shorcut of b once you’re in the context menu, press enter if using the context menue with arrows/don’t need to if you press b. However, make sure you’re on the contxt menue first. To check, you’ll hear properties on your first up-arrow when in context of favorites. You might have to play around with this a bit—I know I have to.

Need any more help? Feel free to write me personally at this e-mail address/contact the group again.

Hello Joseph,

Will we still have the option of a local account by disconnecting the machine from the internet? I do not want the cloud experience, or my data associated ewith my microsoft account, so I use a local one, and want to keep it that way when I do a clean install.

Hi all,

 

Part of the reason why there hasn’t been Windows 10 development briefing until now was due to virtually no activity with Version 2004, and it is a bit early to talk about what fast ring Insiders are using.

 

The following is a preliminary screen reader compatibility advisory for upcoming Version 2004 (build 19041):

 

Windows 10 Version 2004 is very close at hand. Key highlights include ability to reset from fresh copy on the cloud, improved GPU tracking in Task Manager, new Cortana experience, WSL 2, and many other changes. There has been improvements in Narrator, including supporting Chromium-based browsers.

 

Key changes:

 

  • Cloud reset: when you perform a reset, you can download a fresh copy of Windows system files from the cloud rather than using files from local installations.
  • Emphasis on Microsoft Account during clean install.
  • Track more GPU data in Task Manager.
  • New conversational Cortana experience, including Cortana window staying open all the time when launched.
  • Windows Subsystem for Linux version 2, completely different mechanism than version 1 with virtualization playing a more prominent role.
  • Modern input method experience for Chinese and Japanese.
  • Support for Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax).
  • Various Narrator improvements.

 

Screen reader compatibility: any screen reader compatible with Version 1903 (May 2019 Update/build 18362) should work, although for best experience, more recent versions should be used. IN particular, releases supporting Chromium-based Edge 79 or later are recommended. The following are recommended screen reader releases:

 

  • Narrator: compatible
  • JAWS: 2018 or later (JAWS 2020 February 2020 update recommended)
  • NVDA: 2019.3 or later
  • Any screen reader compatible with at least Version 1903 along with Chromium Edge

 

Things to note:

 

Narrator:

  • Microsoft is looking into compatibility issues with Edge 79 and later.

 

JAWS:

  • February 2020 release of JAWS 2020 is highly recommended due to initial support for Edge 79 and later.
  • Emoji picker (Windows+Period) may not work well.

 

NVDA:

  • Version 2019.3 or later should be used as it supports Edge 79 and Version 2004 changes (be sure add-ons are compatible).

Well as a beta tester of supernova screen reader and other supernova stuff the new edge should be supported sooner rather than later.

I have no idea about the 2004 windows version but assume full support will happen round time it gets chromium edge support or assume so.

I can't tell you when it goes or exactly whats officially happening due to agreements but

Its coming and soon.

This includes added two boxes on different websites form controls like combo boxes, buttons, and other form fields that are not consistent on websites such as banking, shopping, and other websites. I can't do a tutorial on the settings and get that out to you. The settings are consistent, but actually using the new chromium edge, is not consistent across websites. I just wanted to let you know that I am still working with that so I can give you a tutorial where the instructions will always work. I am also having problems with the manage downloads.

I just wanted to let you know that I am finding these inconsistent seas with the chromium hedge, and that is why I have not sent you the first tutorial on using it.

Hi Sieghard,

You have it correct. If you do not have Edge maximize and you go into the settings you will not be able to see the tree view. If you minimize the edge browser and go into settings and try to get to profile, privacy and security, and so on you will not be able to do that.  Do you have automatic form mode turn on? If you have that on or off it makes a difference what you can get to in the settings and how you get to them. If you have forms mode set to auto and you have Edge minimize you will not be able to get to the tree view. I tried doing it as I had a friend that had form mode on and his Edge minimized and he could not get to the tree view in settings. But having it maximize he had no issue with form mode on auto. When I want to go to settings and I have my forms mode on auto all I have to do is press alt + F then press S then tab once and arrow down once and I am on profile. But if you minimize Edge then do the same steps   you will land on add profile. Which is not in the tree view but you are in the profile edit page.

I have not noticed that whether Edge is maximized or not has any influence on seeing the Settings.

The only thing that is different that if Edge is not maximized you have to click on the menu at the top in order to bring up the category treeview.

Here is Jaws history showing what that sounds like:

 

Settings – this is at the very top of the page, if I arrow down once I hear this:

Settings menu, button menu

If I arrow down further when the page is not maximized I go straight past the search edit box to “Your profile”, the category treeview is missing, but it can easily be restored by pressing enter on that menu.

Hi Everyone,

In working with a friend of mine who when into settings in the new Chromium Edge was not able to see  the settings in the tree view in Edge. After many frustrating hours he finally figured out that if Edge is not maximize you cannot see all the settings in Edge. So make sure you go to properties in the New Chromium Edge icon and set it to open in maximize. If you need the steps to do that please let me know and I will provide those. Also you can maximize Edge when open by pressing the windows Key + up arrow.

  • JAWS: 2018 or later (JAWS 2020 February 2020 update recommended)
  • NVDA: 2019.3 or later
  • Any screen reader compatible with at least Version 1903 along with Chromium Edge

 

Things to note:

 

Narrator:

  • Microsoft is looking into compatibility issues with Edge 79 and later.

 

JAWS:

  • February 2020 release of JAWS 2020 is highly recommended due to initial support for Edge 79 and later.
  • Emoji picker (Windows+Period) may not work well.

 

NVDA:

  • Version 2019.3 or later should be used as it supports Edge 79 and Version 2004 changes (be sure add-ons are compatible).

 

For other screen readers, please contact vendors regarding plans for Version 2004 support.

 

Note: the above advisory will change based on updated feedback from vendors and users.

Cheers,

Joseph
