Thank you, Desert. I believe you are right in that my professor just gave a phone number instead of enabling the global calling options. You don't have to worry about this in Skype for Business. I'm considering calling disability support Services, so they can request that all professors enable this option when scheduling meetings.

Re: strange anomaly.

The first thing I'd suggest is taking one of the shortcuts that have a functioning shortcut key and deleting the shortcut key for said shortcut.

Then try assigning that now freed up shortcut key sequence to the one you can't seem to make stick.

There are only so many "spare" keyboard shortcuts available for use.  I suspect you may have hit the limit if you assign keyboard shortcuts to desktop shortcuts with regularity.  This at least let's you know whether that may be the case.

Hello Leslie and List,

The fact that you did not see the Global Call In Option in the Meeting Invitation indicates your professor had left out this option when creating that meeting. Giving you a number from a previous meeting or other meetings would not work. I suggest you share your experiences and strugles with your professor; and request him/her to make future meetings more accessible by enabling global call in.

Best,

Hi Brian, thanks for the reply.
"C:\Users\admin\Desktop\Sound - Shortcut.lnk"
I get that from the properties, the path,
and for some reason I cannot make a shortcut key stick.
my volume one works fine, many others, but not that one.

One correction. You cannot press s to get into sounds not anymore. You see a list of links for which you must tab. What I did was search for sound, find it, then create a shortcut on my desktop then I can just go from there very quickly. Also no need to shift tab. Just control tab through the dialogue. You will stay in the list view.

Yep, though that is a separate issue.

What's really tricky, though, is that you can reset your Microsoft Account password, which will propagate down to the Windows 10 MS Account Linked User Account the first time you enter the new one, but not before.  So you can also go for months and months and months with a different password on your Windows 10 MS Account Linked User Account and actual MS Account so long as you do not enter the new one from the MS Account when logging in to Windows 10.   Not that there's really much purpose in doing so, but I've known a couple of people who virtually demanded different passwords, and this is how I set them up after discovering this by accident.

Re: win 10 iso

 

Well there are no more windows additions as far as actual images.

Instead its all to do with the licence of windows.

If you upgrade that licence which will be registered to your microsoft account you can simply load it in.

I am not sure what happens if you have brought multiple licences for multiple additions on the same account and how that would work.

Exactly, I can download the Media Creation tool for the current version of Windows whether it’s 1909 or the upcoming 2004 and I can keep it in my downloads folder until the next version of Windows comes out in 6 months or so.

I can then use it to make an ISO file in very short order at any time whether it’s right away or in 3 month or in 5 months hence making sure I have the latest version just as Brian pointed out.

I'm quite sure you can under Windows, too.  But what's the point?

The Media Creation Tool builds you the very latest ISO that is available.  The time difference between downloading a built ISO, which will be older in almost all cases, and using the Media Creation Tool is negligible.

When it comes to Windows 10, the freshness of the ISO you're getting or install drive you're building is very important.  Why not use the incredibly easy method supplied by Microsoft for this purpose?  It's not like the Media Creation Tool is inaccessible nor asks you hundreds of questions.  You confirm a couple of things about what it is you're actually seeking and then walk away until it finishes.

I have not had an issue with browser sync on any browser I use, including Firefox, Chrome, and Chromium-based Edge.  Any time one is using any sync function, and using multiple devices, you have to take into consideration things like, "Did I turn off setting X here, and turn on setting Y there, and realize that afterward setting X is off anywhere it syncs and setting Y is on anywhere it syncs."

Re: Concerning Chromium Edge

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Veronica, you asked, and I answered about Home Page versus On Startup Pages 2 days ago, and I am going to merge this topic back in with that one.  Please read the link I gave you, where the explicit instructions for setting your On Startup page(s), Home Page, and default search engine under Chromium Edge with a screen reader have been discussed, step-by-step.  https://win10.groups.io/g/win10/message/41525

There is a difference in what used to be called a Home Page back in the IE days and a Home Page now, which is what you get to when you hit the Home button (if you have it displayed).  And what you want is an On Startup page if that's what you wish to have displayed when the browser is started afresh.

I believe you are correct regarding search by voice.  I never use it, though.

The default location for where files download in new Edge (just like old Edge and IE) is your Downloads folder unless you changed it or someone else did.  If you open Edge Settings and navigate to the Downloads pane, you are given the choice to change the download location, if you wish all files to go to one place like Downloads, or to throw a toggle that tells Edge to ask you for each download where you wish to have it saved.

Concerning Chromium Edge

Veronica Kirk
 

When I open edge in order for my home page Google to come up I have to press Alt plus home.  I just want to be sure this is correct, as with IE it automatically popped up without having to do anything.  Also, I was wondering how do I go about downloading with this browser so that it will end up in downloads. 

 

When google my search engine appears, I notice that one has to tab through the search areas and one is search by voice.  I presume that is for one with a microphone.  Thank you for any input.  I have been using IE for many years, so it is rather difficult for me to learn a browser so totally different.  Any help will be very much appreciated.

Re: Using sync settings in Edge

 

Hi kelly.

I know that microsoft accounts are online.

If you lost the net and had to login can you login with a microsoft account when offline.

Assuming you can, its going to eventually have to connect.

If it does, one assumes that at some point things may just not work because it needs the net.

Ie the net is needed to login to windows or if it logs in varification or for some services.

If this happens, I assume I probably can't get access to any of my files or even some services till things come back online, or I make a local account assuming I can actually get windows to boot to an online account without the online part with reinstalling windows first.

Its why I still use a local account for login.

Once windows is started I do use services from email and apps.

I don't use any office subscriptions or onedrive though and only universal apps and the store mainly as well as being an x box insider and have storage on dropbox which aint up all the time either.

Hello,

 

I work for Microsoft so offer that before giving my opinion just so people understand any bios I may have.  I do not believe I do but want to be transparent.

 

With that said, I use the Sync feature on multiple devices and for four different accounts and two different versions of Edge—the shipping build and then a build from the canary branch.  These are a mixture of personal and work accounts and I find the feature works quite well.  Aside from occasionally not being able to reach the sync server when adding an account, I’ve not had issues myself for what that is worth.

Here are steps for importing contacts for most versions of Outlook and I’ve never used the Mail app to assist with exporting.

 

1. From within the inbox, Alt+F for File menu.

2. O for Open and right arrow, or enter.

3. Now arrow to the list of choices and choose Import hitting enter.

4. Select the Import from another program or file option.

5. Arrow down and choose the Comma Separated Values (DOS) option.

6. Now it's going to give you the option to find the .CSV file it is that you are  planning on importing from.

7. You are going to need to tell it in which directory to save your contacts (which will most likely be Contacts).

8. Tab to finish and it should just automatically import your contacts.
