Re: setting Word 2010 as default

Page, Aaron
 

1.       Open Windows Explorer and select the file

2.       Press the applications key to bring up the context menu

3.       Arrow down to “Open With” and press the right arrow to expand the menu

4.       Choose “set default program” or similar. In Windows 10 it says “Choose another app”. This should be at the bottom of the list

5.       In the box that appears select Microsoft Word 2010 from the list of applications

6.       Tab to the checkbox for “Always use this application” and check it if it is not checked already

7.       Tab to the OK button and press Enter

 

This should set your system to always open files with that particular extension in MS Word.

Re: JAWS 14 and Office 365

Londa Peterson
 

 If you're installing the client on your computer and you can still install 2013, you should be fine. If you have to use 2016 or the online service, you may need to seriously look into a JAWS upgrade. I think FS has built features like smart navigation into JAWS 17 so that it will work better in situations like this.

Cynthia,

 

I’ve been using JAWS with Office 365 for almost two years now without any issues.  I will say one of the advantages is that the updates are done seamlessly in the background, without you having to do anything.  This way you always have all updates installed, no problems, no questions, no worries.  I’ve used it with JAWS 14, 15, 16, and now 17 without issues.  I use it on a daily basis for work as well as personal use, so feel free to ask away and I’ll help out to the best of my ability.

Yes, once you select a .docx or .doc file to open in Word, it will be the default, as long as you select it in the dialog.

Hi gang: I seem to remember a post about downloading a program that would allow you to play YouTube without the ads, and it listed some great keyboard commands. Usually, I have the sense to cut and paste such gems into text files and save them in a tutorials directory, but I simply followed the link, downloaded, and used it for a while, and it worked great. Now, it doesn’t seem to work anymore. I’ve looked for the info on the archive but can’t find it. Where is that excellent post hiding?

 

Thanks for any clue.

Try and open it from excel itself. Just find out where you saved it or type the path name. I’m interested in finding out if by opening the spread sheet from excel would do the trick or not. It might mean that when it was sent as an attachment that it got corrupted.

Hi list,

 

                I received a 15 KB xlsx document as an attachment and I saved it. Then, I tried to open it on my Windows 10 computer. JAWS kept reporting, “Opening Excel,” but the document never did come in. I pressed alt Tab and got the following message:

 

“Microsoft Excel cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space.

• To make more memory available, close workbooks or programs you no longer need.

• To free disk space, delete files you no longer need from the disk you are saving to.” (end of quote)

 

By the way, I have plenty of available memory and plenty of available disk space.

 

                I can launch Excel and create a new xlsx document, then I can save it, close it and open it again, but I tried opening some older Excel files and they won’t open either.

 

                Finally, I tried opening the file on a Windows 7 machine and on a Windows 8.1 machine and it opened with no problems on both computers.

 

                Can anyone help?

Re: remote call failed to execute

Peter Donahue
 

Good morning everyone,

We had this happen on my wife's computer. The most likely cause is a
corrupt user. You need to create a new user and delete the one causing you
to get that message.

It could also be an indication of a failing hard drive. When
hardware fails it can effect the performance of software on your machine
including Windows. I would first create a new user and set it as the default
and delete the corrupt user to remedy this issue. If your computer continues
to behave irradically it's time to call a technician to run some diagnostics
to determine if it's time for a new hard drive or something else. Hope this
helps.
