Hi David. Thanks for writing guides to Windows 8.

Somehow those links take me to Google URL Shortener.

Also, did you also produce some guides for Windows 7 a while back?

After you have pinned your
favorite programs to the Taskbar and you know how to launch them using the
Windows key plus the numbers 1 through 9.
However, if you are not sure where you put what, and need a reminder of
which numbered slots your programs hold on the taskbar, simply hit Windows +
the letter T, and your focus will be on the first item in the taskbar.
Press Windows plus t again to cycle through each item. Just count up in
your head from 1 to 9 and you will know which program is in which slot.

Once you know which numbers to use, you can use the Alt plus Windows plus
the number to launch the Jump list for that program. For example, let's say
the last document you worked on was memo.doc and you want to go back to it
from the desktop. Instead of opening Word and going into the File menu, or
going into Documents and finding it that way, simply hit alt plus Windows
plus the number for Word (assuming that Word is pinned to the taskbar), and
bingo, you are in a vertical list of the last few documents you worked on.
Just quickly arrow to memo.doc and hit enter and there it is. It is very
very cool.

Take care.
Mike

It actually sounds to me like you have two copies of MS Outlook running

the other remains? Happens to me on very rare occasions, and I have no idea

I am getting an error message when trying to set or delete time markers.
It tells me that it can't write to the time marker file. I've checked the

If anyone has suggestions, I would appreciate it. thanks.

Compacting should not affect JAWS.
As messages go into your folders like INBOX or SENT they increase the space these files take.
When you delete messages you leave empty places in your folders.
When you compact the empty areas are removed and remaining messages slide into the previously empty space, and the size of the compacted folder decreases.
The remaining messages are not changed.

Compacting OE Messages, Explained

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi TerriLynn,

Inside Outlook Express

Compact Your OE Folders Web Site

Like most database programs, OE does not actually remove an item from a
*.dbx file when you delete a message. Instead it merely tags the item for
removal
at a later time, mainly when you next compact your folders. Until then, the
deleted message is still occupying disk space, which can cause OE to perform
more slowly when accessing the *.dbx file.

To recover disk space and keep your files as small as possible, you need to
compact your folders regularly.
In the OE Folder list (View Layout Folder List), click Outlook Express so
that no mail or news folder is open. Now click File Work Offline so that no
new
messages will be arriving. Finally, click File Folder Compact All Folders.
This process can take several minutes and you should not attempt to use your
computer until it is finished. If an error occurs, such as "cannot compact,
folder in use", just close OE, wait a second or two, then re-open OE and
begin
the process again. This will compact not only your news folders, but also
all of your mail folders and the all-important Folders.dbx.

To compact only news folders, click Tools Options Maintenance Clean up Now,
then click Compact.

In the most current version, OE compacts all folders automatically after you
open and close the program 100 times. Compacting folders is absolutely
essential
for maintaining your files in good working order. If you don't like waiting
for that 100th closing, you can compact all folders manually at any time.
Take care.
Mike

Hi TerriLynn,

Go ahead & let OE compact the folders. This is a message that will come up
every 100 times that OE is opened / started. After compacting there will be
a number of copied folders in the Recycle Bin so, you can go ahead & delete
them as well.

You can do this automatically or simply hit the following
sequence of key strokes.
alt+F
F
F
That will compact the folders manually.

Hope this helped.


Take care.
