Re: how to change advanced power settings in windows

Chris
 

Try this way then.

 

Open settings (windows + I)

Go to network

Then on wi-fi tab to the change adapter settings button

Again a explorer window will open

Then right click on the WIFI or ethernet connection as required

Select properties

You should open in the properties general tab

Then shift tab to the configure button and hit enter

Again shift tab to the tabs and arrow to the last tab for power management

There the option to allow windows to turn off this device should be unchecked

Finally apply and ok out of the open dialogs and close the open window

 

 

I dont know if Thats a better explanation or not but I tried

Good luck!

Re: JFW and iTunes

Again, speculating about what Apple will and will not do is not productive.

 

When Apple announces they are no longer making iTunes for Windows, then we will deal with it at that time.

iTunes on the Mac has been gone for one or two years now.  The iDevicce interacts with Finder and shows up like a external drive.

You can completely manage apps on the device without the need for iTunes and if you use either One Drive or DropBox you can access music files and pull them into the Music app.

I have no idea if Apple plans on pulling iTunes all together, but I can’t imagine that they are going to continue to pour money into an application that solely runs on Windows.

What tasks do you directly need iTunes for today?

That isn't jaws problem to fix.  Alt does not bring up the menu in itunes.  If you want the menu, hold alt and press one of the first letter options like f.  You can then arrow down through the file menu, or arrow over to whatever menu you want.

Hi all,

Any  JFW users have the problem of JAWS not announcing the menu in iTune? For example if you press alt key and then the left or right arrow, JAWS will not say file or accounts etc.

I notice this has been happening for quite sometime and there seems to be no fix for it in the 2021 update of JAWS.

iTunes on the Mac is no more.  There is now a Music app, TV app and Podcast app.  They work with or without a iPhone or iPad and you certainly don’t need to use any of those apps and can still manage your iPhone.
The only time I plug my iPhone into my Mac is if I need to DFU the phone and the average user would most likely take it to an Apple store if the phone was really so bad off that you needed to perform a DFU.

That led to all kinds of rumors about Apple getting rid of iTunes.  Nothing close to that has come from Apple.

Re: JFW and iTunes

iTunes on the Mac has been gone for one or two years now.  The iDevicce interacts with Finder and shows up like a external drive.
You can completely manage apps on the device without the need for iTunes and if you use either One Drive or DropBox you can access music files and pull them into the Music app.
I have no idea if Apple plans on pulling iTunes all together, but I can’t imagine that they are going to continue to pour money into an application that solely runs on Windows.
What tasks do you directly need iTunes for today?

Re: JFW and iTunes

Richard Turner
 

Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.

 

Apple changed iTunes on the Mac into I think three different apps or some such thing, but I paid little attention as I do not have a Mac.

 

That led to all kinds of rumors about Apple getting rid of iTunes.  Nothing close to that has come from Apple.

Re: how to change advanced power settings in windows

Richard Turner
 

Hi James,
I kind of followed Chris's steps and found it on my Dell laptop. Well, I found my WiFi card as it is the only one that shows up.
Only, I typed the word "connection" singular, not plural.

I arrowed down on my WiFi network so Jaws would see it as selected.
I did the application key, and selected property.
I shift+tabbed once to the configure button and pressed spacebar.
I was on the General tab, as I right arrowed, I went through all the tabs, the last one being Power Management tab, the first item when I tabbed was a checkbox for allowing the computer to turn this device off to save power.

I hope that helps.

Then after pressing the passthrough command, then try ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow, and see if your screen rotates right-side up.

Hi-

Periodically I mistakenly hit some combination of keystrokes that turns my screen sideways (landscape).  When I searched for keystroke to change it to portrait, what I got was alt-ctrl-arrow – but the problem is that is a JAWS command for tables and  when I do it, JAWS keeps telling me that I am not in a table (which I obviously know. 

 

Any suggestions? Having a sideways screen is a problem  when I am on a Zoom and also when I ask someone to help me with something on my computer.

Hi, Barbara. Before attempting to press ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow, try pressing the "passthrough" command in JAWS, which is JAWS key plus three on the numbers row, not the NumPad. Then after pressing the passthrough command, then try ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow, and see if your screen rotates right-side up.

Hi-

Periodically I mistakenly hit some combination of keystrokes that turns my screen sideways (landscape).  When I searched for keystroke to change it to portrait, what I got was alt-ctrl-arrow – but the problem is that is a JAWS command for tables and  when I do it, JAWS keeps telling me that I am not in a table (which I obviously know. 

 

Any suggestions? Having a sideways screen is a problem  when I am on a Zoom and also when I ask someone to help me with something on my computer.

 

Thanks,

Barbara

Well, when turning the video on in Zoom somehow the picture ended up sideways and JAWS was no help.  At least with Barbera’s problem JAWS does read out “Landscape” or “Portrait”
