Hi Brian & Jim,
 
I am terribly sorry!  I thought Jim was running Windows 7.  I must have missed what OS he was running.
Take care.

 I have never seen either of these themes on a Windows 8 or Windows 10 machine.  Windows 7 Basic existed on all Windows 7 machines and Windows Classic on some.  The machine that Jim has is running Win8.1 64-bit.

Re: Is there added security with a logon requirement?

 

Peter,

        Provided you do not have any accounts on your machine that do not require a password to log in, a password certainly provides an added layer of security as far as someone simply picking up your computer and being able to use it if it were left somewhere.  

        When it comes down to it, protection of actual physical access to your computer (or smartphone, or other device) is your absolute best line of defense against unauthorized use.

         All security measures deal with making it more difficult for the unauthorized to gain access to your information if they have somehow gained access to your hardware (whether physically or remotely).  There has yet to be a security protocol invented that cannot be broken into by someone.

         User account control is more focused on what a user authorized to use the computer can and cannot do as far as tweaking the system itself.

Is there added security with a logon requirement?

Peter Tesar
 

Hello,

Further to the discussion on having a logon prompt.

Is there any added security if a logon password is required? If you logon to a user account, will it reduce the potential damage from a virus?

I had heard of this some years ago. Microsoft gave us the User Account /control to restrict access to some critical functions. I don't know if it adds to security or just gives us a false sense of security.

As a reminder of the threats out there,  I just got an eMail with the subject:
   warning you have exceeded your eMail limit, web mail account administrator
It probably wants me to open it and click on something. I don't use the cloud for anything.

We have to be ever vigilent.
Should I return to requiring a logon prompt?

Peter T.

Hi Jim,
 
To change your Desktop Theme to, Windows Classic, try the following:
1. While on the desktop press, control + spacebar, to make sure that nothing is selected.
2. Open the context menu with the applications key or, shift + F10, arrow down to Personalize & press enter.
3. You will now be in the Themes Gallery.  here  the different themes are in columns & rows.  To find the Windows Classic Theme, arrow down to Windows7 Basic, & right arrow 1 time to Windows Classic & press enter.
 
Also, changing themes  will probably change your Sound Schemes as well.  So, you might have to alter your sound schemes to get the sounds you want.
Take care.

Brian: Again, sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this issue. "Task switching" does refer to "being able to switch between active programs using ALT+TAB". Sometimes, when you press ALT+TAB to "switch" to another file/application, You "land" on each item as you ALT+TAB your way through the open files/applications, and you can immediately start to work on a file/application. However, at other times, you have to press enter/spacebar, when you land on the file/application that you are seeking - when "task switching"; because, all you see is the "title" of that window, and you cannot work on that file/application. To avoid having to worry about that coming up from time to time, someone sent instructions on "Changing Themes", which involved changing to the "Windows Classic" theme. I thought that I had "Windows Classic" working on my PC already; but, when I followed those instructions, and tried to look for it, I could not find it anywhere. Would you happen to have a link for "Windows Classic". I am not convinced that it does not exist on my system; but, I cannot find it, and it is useless to search without knowing exactly where I should be looking for this on my system. It seems to have disappeared, perhaps around the time I was having "general problems" with my PC last year. Thanks very much. Jim H


Re: Changing themes, using the "start memu", to get rid of "task switching" ...

 

Jim,

        This should not have anything to do with the theme you're using, at least in my experience.  

        I have access to a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Win8.1 Home 64-bit.   The themes included are three Windows Default Themes:  Windows, Lines & Colors, & Flowers.  Five installed themes from Toshiba, which don't warrant mentioning by name, and four high contrast themes: High Contrast #1, High Contrast #2, High Contrast Black, and High Contrast White.

        There is no theme by the name of Windows Classic.  This machine has had no customizations made with regard to themes, so I have little doubt that what shows up on any Win8.1 machine will be a couple of straight Windows themes, the high contrast themes, and whatever custom themes the device manufacturer might choose to include.

If you're doing a letter, it's a no-brainer. Type and spellcheck the business letter, go to mailings tab, and drop down. Envelopes should be your first choice. Hit enter. Both addresses will automatically populate. Tab through until you hit print. That ought to do it. I use a separate printer for envelopes, requiring a few extra steps, but it's still easy.

I'm curious where and when you learned this shortcut?   There are tons of these that exist that range from not well documented to completely undocumented.  This one pops up on a number of web pages, and a really good one from Microsoft involving keyboard shortcuts for Windows and Windows programs is entitled, Keyboard Shortcuts for Microsoft Office Word.  It covers some keyboard shortcuts applicable outside of MS-Word as well.

Brian

P.S. to Ted:  That keystroke sequence I gave invokes precisely the option under the Review ribbon to which you've made reference.  It's just the "direct line" there.

I haven't tried with the key stroke, but I did try by hitting the Menu key, the Alt key, and right arrow in through the ribbon options until I found review. Under proofing inside this menu, which is in itself a submenu, I found word count. I will try the keystroke command you suggested to see if this works. Thank you very much.

Loreal,

        I am basing the following on Word 2010, but the Word Count function under the Review ribbon has been the same for a long time, so I hope it carried forward.

        When in Word, if you hit ALT+R,W does that bring up the Word Count dialog?  If so, does it still include the Character Count, one line includes spaces and another excludes them in Word 2010.  When I hit the above command, and am using NVDA, the entire Word Count dialog content is read, this includes number of pages, words, characters (no spaces), characters (with spaces), paragraphs, and lines.  There is also a checkbox to include text boxes, footnotes, and end notes which is checked by default.
