Hello everyone,
First of all, my apologies to the list because this may be off topic,
but I couldn't find a way to sign up for this group, and wasn't sure if
it even existed anymore.
I am interested in learning about Usenet, and had a few questions on how
to get started with it, and didn't know if any of yall used it or not,
so I figured I'd reach out. I would be using my phone to download
content, and the content I'm wanting to download is movies, music, etc.
I did some reading on Google, but figured maybe talking with someone

If you wanna get with me off list, that's totally fine. You can reach me

Re: How To Get Rid Of Get Windows 10 Message

the problem with this is, if your windows update is set to automatic and recommended updates are checked, the get windows 10 nag will be reinstalled, regardless if it is hidden. Microsoft is despritly urging users to upgrade, and they have the means to unhide what has been hidden, even change the status of an update from optional to recommended or important at will.

so download the gwx control panel program (I recommend the portable version, not the installer), unzip it, run it, and enter on the option to disable the get windows 10 app. if you should want to get windows 10, reenabling is possible. just run the program again and enter on enable the get windows 10 app.

How To Turn Off Windows10 Update Message In Windows7

Go to the run command and type in:

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3035583

re-boot the system.
this will uninstall the update and then when the update comes back you
will need to hide the update and not install it.

To Hide the update:

updates need to be set to download but let me install them that way
when they are downloaded you should have a new updates in the task tray
that you can click on and then you tab over to important updates Press
enter on that to bring up the list of downloaded updates. down arrow
through the list till you find the kb:3035583
update. Then uncheck the update with the Space Bar, and then right mouse
click on it.

you can then tab to the ok button and
press enter on the install button if there's other updates to install.

Hello, everyone.

Yesterday, I ran malware bytes on my home Windows 7 PC, and ever
since, I receive the “get windows 10” message every few minutes or
so. I can exit out of the message using alt F4, but the message
re-appears again soon thereafter.

How can I get rid of this message?

Personally, I find it not only annoying, but intrusive!

I do plan to upgrade to Windows 10 at some point, and don’t need to
be constantly reminded of its availability!

Hello Everyone.

Recently, people have been asking me how they can disable windows 10
icons and upgrade files from being downloaded to their systems and
Microsoft nagging them to upgrade. it should be an option, not under
handed tactics by microsoft to download files to your system. certain
users have also reported that the get windows10 icon has been affecting
productivity with certain apps. here's a quick way to permanently
disable the upgrade until you wish to reenable it and take advantage of
microsoft's offer.

first, download the following program and click save, do not click run.
you will need to save the file in case you need to upgrade at a later stage.

http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/GWX_control_panel.exe

After you've saved the file, click on it to launch it. the license
agreement will be displayed. click on i accept and continue. You will
see various buttons on the interface. If you see a disable windows10
upgrade option, click on it to disable the various programs and icons
that are running as part of the windows10 upgrade. when you run the tool
in future, it will give you the option to enable the upgrade as opposed
to disabling it. the program does offer other options to clear the
windows update cache, but you may not need them and they should only be
used as a last resort to remove windows files. If you do decide to clear
the windows update cache and downloaded windows10 files, your update
history will be reset and the windows update screen will show that you
have never previously installed any updates. updates you have hidden
will also have to be rehidden. for more information and a full
description of what the program does and how it works, visit the

HI All,
 
Does anyone have experience at using JAWS with the airbnb.com web site?  I played around with it just a bit, then decided I would be better off checking first so I don’t bang my virtual head against a wall of inaccessibility!  They have a regular web site and a version marked as for mobile, and the mobile site has about 40% fewer links.  Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Alt+n a f should also work for multiple attachments as it does for a single

Re: Attachments in "rich text" messages under Microsoft Outlook 2013

Kimber Gardner
 

Adrian,

You've done a pretty thorough job listing the various methods for handling attachments with jaws.

My go to method for accessing attachments sent to me is the shift + tab method as you describe. However as many of us know, this method does not always produce results. When I find nothing after back tabbing, I use the open all attachments option inn the file tab. It entails some extra steps since you then have to go to wherever the attachments have been saved to view them, but it works for me 99% of the time.

As for sending multiple attachments, I find the copy and paste most reliable. Just be sure your cursor is in the correct part of the message before you attempt to paste your second, third etc. attachments.

I hope this helpful.

Kimber,

You've done a much better job than I at following this thread. I wonder if it's possible for you, or anyone else, to complete a list of attachment methods. Here's a start, based on what I do (which seems similar to what you do):

1. When sending a message: Attach a file by copying from a files list with control-c and pasting into the message field of an email with control-v.

2. When sending a message: What is the best method for attaching several files?

3. With a received message: To locate an attachment above the message field, press shift-tab, then use the arrow keys to locate each attachment. (As Caroline says, the first attachment is some obscure thing for techies only.)

4. With a received message: To locate an attachment when there are three or more above the message field: This can involve a lot of trial-and-error arrowing. What is the best solution?

5. With a received message: To locate an attachment within the message field: I find insert-a often isolates it. Any better method, or an alternative for when insert-a doesn't work?

The "insert tab method" is the same as the keystrokes N A F as
described by Carolyn. It isn't my favorite method, but it works well
enough if, as you said, the files to be attached are not spread far
and wide throughout the system.

I suppose which method you choose has a lot to do with the comfort
level of the person creating the attachments. For me, copy and paste
has always been the most straightforward way to attach files and so
is the one I most often choose.

Kimber,

When you say "Copy and Paste" via the steps given by Carolyn on the
first paste a line labeled "Attached" along with an edit box with the name
of the attachment appears directly under the "Subject" label and edit box.
If you continue to copy and paste after that for additional attachments
they just appear next to the one(s) already listed in the edit box for
Attachments.

The ALT+N,AF method is great if the file or files you intend to
attach are in a single folder, and that folder is not hard to navigate to
from wherever you happened to attach a file from the last time you used that
method. When the files are spread out all over the place that's when I use
the copy and paste method but with Search Everything being the method of
doing the file finds. If you know the name of the file you're looking for,
and you use distinctive file names, it's much faster to find an individual
file that way for copy/paste than navigating within a browse dialog and
having to go "long distances" in the tree to locate the files.

What is the "insert tab" method? I may have to try that one if
it's easier for my clients.

Hi,
Even with JAWS 16.0.1214, using the regular Facebook site is so inconsistent with those special FB commands. I always use the Mobile site of FB, which you can easily get to on a computer. The mobile site has links for just what you need and no other stuff to get through. Just type in m.Facebook.com No www. Use IE11 or Google Chrome and not Firefox. The mobile site is so easy to navigate that you do not need those special key strokes. In fact, those key strokes will not even work on the Mobile site, because it is so easy to use already. Take care, and let me know how it goes on the mobile site. Have a great one.

Either certain FaceBook pages do notsupport the

Do the special JAWS/Facebook keystrokes work for you on

Yes I have written to FaceBook list.



But this post discusses whether or when the

Perhaps there are FaceBook pages wherethe key commandsdo notwork.



Have you found a FaceBook page where they Work?!

If so, which page. So one can test keystrokes on that lucky FaceBook page.

I'm also having difficulties in Facebook. I've commented or written a
post on any given page, checked it before posting and then, when I post
it, all that comes up is the first letter! So upgrading to JAWS 17 does
not solve the problem. Instead, I've had to go back to JAWS 15 and, only
then, am I able to post messages or comments on Facebook without the
embarrassment of only the first letter showing up!

Re: Facebook. better instructions

Got it, did it. Even got through Notifications and got them checked off -
back more like it used to be back with XP and JAWS 13.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Subject: Facebook. better instructions

HI,

Sometimes in life one gets lucky, and I founda power FaceBook user.



So here are better instructions.



On any FaceBook page,

Hit

"insert + v"

Andtype in the word

Web.

Now downarrow 1 time.

You will be on a line saying

Allow reserve.keystrokes " or something similar.

Check it.



Now in any FaceBook page, the useful commands can work.



What I sent (earlier message) works only on the page in FACEBOOK open at
the time. The previous

Steps I just typed out here apply to all.



On Facebook, find news by

Arrowing to rss feeds and press Enter.

Hit j and one may hear

"story"

Or if one is lucky actually hear the story read.

If you only get the word "story" hit Enter.

Another page opens.

Hit r

Which takes you to the

"main region" where the story is.



To go back, maybe "k" works..



To get out of a series of threads, hit

Control + h"

Which brings up History.

Find the link where you began and hit Enter on it.

That puts you at the beginning of FaceBook.



Now can some one tell me how to close a friend's FACEBOOK page so one
can go to another

Friend's

FaceBook page?

Is there a command for doing that?



Is there a command for getting to the

Facebook edit field or any

Edit field on any

FaceBook page?

I can say that putting in that Insert V option and going to OK is making
Facebook work more like it used to, but I didn't get anywhere with J.
I'll try the next time I go in. Thanks for that tip.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Re: JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes

David Moore
 

Hi,
Even with JAWS 16.0.1214, using the regular Facebook site is so inconsistent with those special FB commands. I always use the Mobile site of FB, which you can easily get to on a computer. The mobile site has links for just what you need and no other stuff to get through. Just type in
m.Facebook.com
No www. Use IE11 or Google Chrome and not Firefox. The mobile site is so easy to navigate that you do not need those special key strokes. In fact, those key strokes will not even work on the Mobile site, because it is so easy to use already. Take care, and let me know how it goes on the mobile site. Have a great one.

Subject: JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes
 

HI,

I set up

“reserve” (let the site activate the keystrokes for that page ” for  FaceBook in

JAWS 16.

 

Either certain FaceBook pages do notsupport the

New uses for the

“j”  or  “shift j”   or

Not all versions of  JAWS 16 support the new FaceBook keystrokes.

 

There are 3 versions  of  JAWS 16.

 

Please which JAWS 16  version supports the special key commands developed for use with FACEBOOK?

 

Do the special JAWS/Facebook  keystrokes work  for you on

www.historychannel.com

and then

pick Facebook.

 

Yes I  have written to FaceBook list.

 

But this  post discusses whether or when the

JAWS/Facebook key commands  actually  work.

Perhaps there are  FaceBook pages wherethe key commandsdo notwork.

 

Have you found a FaceBook page where they Work?!

If so, which  page. So one can test keystrokes  on that lucky FaceBook  page.

 

Many thanks.
