not solve the problem. Instead, I've had to go back to JAWS 15 and, only

Re: Is there a JAWS key stroke to toggle the script on or off?

Ann Byrne
 

You could unload JAWS and reload it with defaults.

"run jaws17 /default.

You could also rename the scripts instead of uninstalling them--save.script, or, I think semicolon in front of a script will disable it.

You can define multiple e-mail addresses that correspond to "you" as far as the group is concerned if you use the e-mail aliases option at the bottom of the profile page so that if you send something from any of the listed addresses it would still show up as having originated with you.

Re: How To Get Rid Of Get Windows 10 Message

Tom Behler
 

All:

Let's please not charge Adrian with tech malpractice!! (smiling here, of
course)

The instructions provided worked very well.

I think in my case the "get windows 10" notification and associated files
somehow got installed in multiple places on my computer, which is why the
Microsoft Accessibility Hotline assistant had so much trouble getting
everything cleaned out.

Once again, if Adrian's instructions don't work, and you are reluctant to
install the GWX control panel program onto your computer, give the Microsoft
Accessibility Hotline a call. They need to know that this is a major
problem, at least for some of us, and the more calls they get, the better!

At least this is my opinion, based on my experiences over the week-end.

Stan,

I'm beginning to feel guilty of tech malpractice, and I haven't earned even
one tech-related certificate! Just keep in mind I don't carry tech
malpractice insurance. But other queries off-list have caused me to clarify
the steps, and I'll copy the updated set below. First, let me clarify why I
opted for this procedure, because, as Brian says, there are different
approaches. Personally, I hesitate to download software solutions unless I'm
certain of the source. If there's a way of solving the problem without
adding more software to my ever-growing software collection, I'll take it.

One point I picked up from another lister is that I hadn't emphasized enough
the need to run the operation as administrator. The additional steps should
clarify that part. As you'll see at the end, I also make reference to Brad's
additional suggestion the other night. I haven't tested it yet, but I'm
keeping it in mind in the event the Win10 notification comes back to haunt
me, too. I can only say that I used to get that notification every few
minutes, but ever since I followed the below steps, I havne't received it
once.

So, here goes:

Windows 10 notification, how to uninstall and hide.

Two parts. First, with modifications, from
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/get-rid-windows-10-upgrade-notification-windows
-7-8/
And then steps a tech friend and I devised.

The Windows Update is called KB3035583.

1. Type
command prompt
in the Win7 search window. Once it is typed, wait a moment or two for the
prompt to settle down.

2. Press the applications key on the Command Prompt icon and down arrow to
"Run as administrator."

3. Run the command prompt window with Win key-r. Press enter.

4. Type or copy:
WUSA /UNINSTALL /KB:3035583

5. Follow the on-screen prompts, and when complete type exit to close
Command Prompt.

To hide Windows Updates from installing it again:

1. Go to Windows Update via Windows search and press enter.

2. Tab to "Change settings" and press enter.

3. Check the third item down, something to the effect of "Do it myself." Tab
to OK.

4. Tab to something like "Critical update available" and press enter.

5. If the file is there, right-click and down arrow to hide. Press enter,
then OK.

6. Tab back to "Change settings." Select "Automatic." Tab to OK.

7. Alt-F4 out of the dialog.

Note. Brad suggests adding the following step when blocking future updates.
You run the risk of the hidden update getting unhidden if automatic updates
run. I have found that turning off the option to "get recommended updates
the same way as important updates" is helpful.

I recently uninstalled the Win10 notification and ensured it won't come
back. So far, so good. The steps below explain exactly what I did. the
uninstall instructions come from the indicated website. The instructions for
hiding (which essentially means removing) it from Windows automatic updates
follow. A friend and I worked them out together.

Two parts. First from
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/get-rid-windows-10-upgrade-notification-windows
-7-8/

Uninstalling a Windows Update is surprisingly easy, as long as you know its
name. This update is called KB3035583 so we can use the command line to
delete it with a single command. Begin by opening the Command Prompt with
Administrator privileges (right-click the Command Prompt icon and select Run
as administrator). Run the command prompt window with Win key-r. Type or
copy:
WUSA /UNINSTALL /KB:3035583
Follow the on-screen prompts, and when complete type exit to close Command
Prompt.

To hide Windows Updates from installing it again:
Go to Windows Update via Windows search and press enter.

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!

Sorry for the little rant there, but this is really aggravating!

Re: Attempting to leave a shared folder on Dropbox JAWS17

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Dropbox gets a lot of mileage on this list, so I thought some may be interested in a note I saw in a NYT magazine article from early December, noting that the company is not in sound fiscal health. It may be too much to say they're on life support, but they are not in the pink.

Subject: Attempting to leave a shared folder on Dropbox JAWS17

Hello,
I am using JAWS17 latest update with Windows10 64bit and I am attempting to leave a shared folder on Dropbox. When I follow the steps on the site of logging into Dropbox, finding the sharing link and then pressing enter on the shared folder options next to the folder, I can not locate a button that states leave this folder. I have tried left clicking on myself to see if this would allow for more options but performing this step did not do anything. Additionally, I have also tried pressing enter on the link to the folder itself and then pressing enter on the settings button; however, I simply arrive at the same sharing options as before where I am able to see the members of the folder.
Has anyone been able to do this? if so how? If it makes any difference in steps, it is worth mentioning that I am not the owner of this folder but the owner is able to manage membership Thank you in advance for any responses

Barbara,

          Basic HTML view is far, far, far more screen reader friendly.  The Google Help page I posted the link to actually mentions the Basic HTML view as being best for use with screen readers.

          If you have Basic HTML view up already then specifics about the weirdness that's occurring will help to ferret out what's going on.

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!

Run CHKDSK in a DOS prompt and the output will stay on the screen

 

Press the Windows key, type cmd, press enter.

 

This will give a prompt that is something like

Type CHKDSK and press enter

 

After you view the results, press EXIT to close the window.

Howdy All,

 

Running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit & Jaws 16.  Last night I ran Chkdsk & I want to view the log file, but how the heck do you do it?  Below are the steps I'm trying to follow, but after opening Filter Current Log, this is where I'm getting confused.  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

 

 

 This is not so much a question as it is my attempt to share info.  http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/2172-63-win7-chkdsk-file-location shows how to access
CHKDSK log files, but it's buried way down in the responses.  So here is a summary, for my own convenience  as much as for others'.
list of 8 items
• Click on Start
• Type "Event Viewer" without quotes and launch the Event Viewer.
• In the left navigation pane, under the Windows Logs folder, select Application
• In the right Actions pane, launch the "Filter Current Log..."
• Under Event Sources, choose Winit (for me the logs didn't show up as Winlogon, as suggested in some postings to the above thread)
• Click OK
• On the filtered list, go to entries at the time of CHKDSK and look through them for the CHKDSK log
• In order to look through each one, you actually have to double-click each entry to open up the details
list end

Take care.

Re: How To Get Rid Of Get Windows 10 Message

Adrian Spratt
 

Stan,

I'm beginning to feel guilty of tech malpractice, and I haven't earned even one tech-related certificate! Just keep in mind I don't carry tech malpractice insurance. But other queries off-list have caused me to clarify the steps, and I'll copy the updated set below. First, let me clarify why I opted for this procedure, because, as Brian says, there are different approaches. Personally, I hesitate to download software solutions unless I'm certain of the source. If there's a way of solving the problem without adding more software to my ever-growing software collection, I'll take it.

One point I picked up from another lister is that I hadn't emphasized enough the need to run the operation as administrator. The additional steps should clarify that part. As you'll see at the end, I also make reference to Brad's additional suggestion the other night. I haven't tested it yet, but I'm keeping it in mind in the event the Win10 notification comes back to haunt me, too. I can only say that I used to get that notification every few minutes, but ever since I followed the below steps, I havne't received it once.

So, here goes:

Windows 10 notification, how to uninstall and hide.

Two parts. First, with modifications, from
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/get-rid-windows-10-upgrade-notification-windows-7-8/
And then steps a tech friend and I devised.

The Windows Update is called KB3035583.

1. Type
command prompt
in the Win7 search window. Once it is typed, wait a moment or two for the prompt to settle down.

2. Press the applications key on the Command Prompt icon and down arrow to "Run as administrator."

3. Run the command prompt window with Win key-r. Press enter.

4. Type or copy:
WUSA /UNINSTALL /KB:3035583

5. Follow the on-screen prompts, and when complete type exit to close Command Prompt.

To hide Windows Updates from installing it again:

1. Go to Windows Update via Windows search and press enter.

2. Tab to "Change settings" and press enter.

3. Check the third item down, something to the effect of "Do it myself." Tab to OK.

4. Tab to something like "Critical update available" and press enter.

5. If the file is there, right-click and down arrow to hide. Press enter, then OK.

6. Tab back to "Change settings." Select "Automatic." Tab to OK.

7. Alt-F4 out of the dialog.

Note. Brad suggests adding the following step when blocking future updates. You run the risk of the hidden update getting unhidden if automatic updates run. I have found that turning off the option to "get recommended updates the same way as important updates" is helpful.

I recently uninstalled the Win10 notification and ensured it won't come
back. So far, so good. The steps below explain exactly what I did. the
uninstall instructions come from the indicated website. The instructions for
hiding (which essentially means removing) it from Windows automatic updates
follow. A friend and I worked them out together.

Two parts. First from
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/get-rid-windows-10-upgrade-notification-windows-7-8/

Uninstalling a Windows Update is surprisingly easy, as long as you know its
name. This update is called KB3035583 so we can use the command line to
delete it with a single command. Begin by opening the Command Prompt with
Administrator privileges (right-click the Command Prompt icon and select Run
as administrator). Run the command prompt window with Win key-r. Type or
copy:
WUSA /UNINSTALL /KB:3035583
Follow the on-screen prompts, and when complete type exit to close Command
Prompt.

To hide Windows Updates from installing it again:
Go to Windows Update via Windows search and press enter.
Tab to "Change settings" and press enter.
Check the third item down, something to the effect of "Do it myself." Tab to
OK.
Tab to something like "Critical update available" and press enter.

Subject: 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.

Hello, Tom and all. Here is what someone posted a while back as to how

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!

Sorry for the little rant there, but this is really aggravating!
