Hello Nino:

 

How much of a hurry are you in to get what you want done?

 

I am going away for a few days and will not be back until Monday.

 

It is just a suggestion, you might be better off using the partition and format manager which comes with Windows. If you would like to try that Windows utility, I will write some instructions for you.

 

Let me know as soon as possible.

 

Sincerely:

 

Dave Durber

Hi:

Of the partition.

 

I had to delete the partition.

 

I think you might be right about adding space accept when I tried to do that I got some message about windows not being to recognize the space but I will try that again to add space.

 

I don’t know what operating system the book sencext uses?

 

I will keep you posted as to what happens.

 

Thank you for all of your help.

Hello Nino:

 

Did you delete the existing partition and creat a new 32 GB partition, then format the new partition or, did you reduce the size of the 64 GB partition to a 32 GB partition?

 

Wichever you did, you should be able to create an additional partition on the SD card, using the remaining space. With a bit of luck, your HIMS Device might read both partitions on the SD Card.

Hello Nino:

 

In respect to the SD card you wish to repartition:

 

1. Open Windows Explorer

 

2. Press the DOWN ARROW, until the SD card is highlighted.

 

3, Press ALT+ENTER, to open the properties for the SD card.

 

4. Route the JAWS Cursor to the PC cursor.

 

5. Use the NUM PAD DOWN ARROW, until JAWS says, "Capacity", followed by a long string of numbers, which is the total number of bytes for the card,followed by the total capacity in GB. Make a note of the total number of bytes, as this will be important when allocating the amount of space for the new or resized partition.

 

6. Press ALT+F4, to Close Windows Explorer.

 

7. in the Aomi partitioning software, , check to see if it has a function for increasing or decreasing the size of partitions. It might be better using that function, rather than deleting the existing partition and creating a new partition.

 

8. If it has such a function, check the edit fields. If one of the edit fields says something like, "Enter the maximum number of bytes for the resized partition:, devide the total number of bytes by 2, and enter the result in the edit field.

 

9. Follow the programs instructions to perform the action to reduce the size of the partition.

 

Note: Whether you delete the existing partition and create a new partition or, whether you resize the existing partition, bear in mind , your HIMS device may not recognize the 32 gb partition, This may be due to the HIMS software reading the total size of the SD card, in this case, 64 GB, and determining that it cannot access a partition or partitions on the SD card, even though a partition or partitions are of a size, which it could access, if the SD card was a 32 GB SD card. In my opinion, save yourself the bother, trouble and hassle, buy  a 32 GB SD card. Of course, in the short term, doing so, will cause some pain, aghony  and misery to the bank balance but,in the long-term, you will perminently have an SD card, which is the right capacity for your HIMS device, plus you will have access to the full 64 GB capacity of the 64 GB SD card.

Is the drive you are wishing to perform partition activities, an internal drive?

 

Do you have more than the system drive and this particular drive connected to the computer as internal drives?

 

If So, power off the computer, disconnect all internal drives, except for the system drive and the particular drive on which you wish to perform the partition activities, likewise, disconnect any external drives as well. By doing this, you will minimize accidentally doing something to another drive which you did not intend to do.

 

I stupidly did not do this, and instantly regreted not doing so, when I accidentally started an erase function on a drive, only to find to my horror, I had started erasing a drive, which I did not wish, nor wanted to be erased. Fortunately, I quickly realized my ghastly mistake, and was able to stop the erase function. I sent the drive to a company which specializes in data recovery. Fortunately for me, they recovered virtually the entire data on the drive, in  its original organized layout. These companies are sometimes able to recover data from drives, even if the partition has become corrupted in some way.

If you are using outlook 2016 do the following

 

In outlook in the message press altn

2  tab over until you here insert atachments.

 

The alt n command is the insert command. When you open the attachments dialog box you can tab until you find your computer folders and drives.

Locate the file that you want to send and press the spacebar  tab to the left and you should find an insert button.

 

If you want to send more than one file at a time.

 

Open the attachments dialog box and hold down the control key now you can select files with the spacebar then click insert.

 

I will be checking my email through the evening if you need more help I will be happy to help you My name is Nino.

In JAWS 18 when I press '=' to begin a formula, JAWS says"Type in the
formula and press enter". In JAWS 2018 when I press "=", the '+'
appears to be accepted, but JAWS doesn't say anything. at all.
Pressing "=" a second time causes an error in the formula. The "="
keystroke is accepted by Excel, but JAWS says nothing. Is there a
setting I need to change in order to get the information spoken???

Randy,

First of all, is your Excel screen maximized? Secondly, there is a setting
in Excel to allow editing directly in the cell. I find this in my Excel 2007
version under Excel Options, Advanced, and several tabs along in that page.

Hello, everyone.



Does anyone know of a key stroke for designating an e-mail as "high
importance" in Outlook 2016?



I can get to the high importance designation via the menus, but would like a
specific key stroke for doing this if that is available.



Am using the latest build of Jaws 2018 on a windows 7 laptop here.

Hi, Kevin. This does work with Windows 7 and Outlook, but, in order for it
to work, the Virtual Ribbon must be turned off. In order to do this:

1. Press JAWS key or INSERT key plus six on the numbers row.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D for Default Configuration.
3. In the search box, type

virtual

4. Arrow down to Use Virtual Ribbon, and make sure it is unchecked.
5. TAB to OK, and press SPACE.

Now you should be able to press ALT plus H, followed by H while in a new
message you are composing. It will change the new message from Normal
Importance to High Importance.

Hello Nino:
 
Did you delete the existing partition and creat a new 32 GB partition, then format the new partition or, did you reduce the size of the 64 GB partition to a 32 GB partition?
 
Wichever you did, you should be able to create an additional partition on the SD card, using the remaining space. With a bit of luck, your HIMS Device might read both partitions on the SD Card.

Hello Nino:

 

In respect to the SD card you wish to repartition:

 

1. Open Windows Explorer

 

2. Press the DOWN ARROW, until the SD card is highlighted.

 

3, Press ALT+ENTER, to open the properties for the SD card.

 

4. Route the JAWS Cursor to the PC cursor.

 

5. Use the NUM PAD DOWN ARROW, until JAWS says, "Capacity", followed by a long string of numbers, which is the total number of bytes for the card,followed by the total capacity in GB. Make a note of the total number of bytes, as this will be important when allocating the amount of space for the new or resized partition.

 

6. Press ALT+F4, to Close Windows Explorer.

 

7. in the Aomi partitioning software, , check to see if it has a function for increasing or decreasing the size of partitions. It might be better using that function, rather than deleting the existing partition and creating a new partition.

 

8. If it has such a function, check the edit fields. If one of the edit fields says something like, "Enter the maximum number of bytes for the resized partition:, devide the total number of bytes by 2, and enter the result in the edit field.

 

9. Follow the programs instructions to perform the action to reduce the size of the partition.

 

Note: Whether you delete the existing partition and create a new partition or, whether you resize the existing partition, bear in mind , your HIMS device may not recognize the 32 gb partition, This may be due to the HIMS software reading the total size of the SD card, in this case, 64 GB, and determining that it cannot access a partition or partitions on the SD card, even though a partition or partitions are of a size, which it could access, if the SD card was a 32 GB SD card. In my opinion, save yourself the bother, trouble and hassle, buy  a 32 GB SD card. Of course, in the short term, doing so, will cause some pain, aghony  and misery to the bank balance but,in the long-term, you will perminently have an SD card, which is the right capacity for your HIMS device, plus you will have access to the full 64 GB capacity of the 64 GB SD card.

Hello Nino:

 

Is the drive you are wishing to perform partition activities, an internal drive?

 

Do you have more than the system drive and this particular drive connected to the computer as internal drives?

 

If So, power off the computer, disconnect all internal drives, except for the system drive and the particular drive on which you wish to perform the partition activities, likewise, disconnect any external drives as well. By doing this, you will minimize accidentally doing something to another drive which you did not intend to do.

 

I stupidly did not do this, and instantly regreted not doing so, when I accidentally started an erase function on a drive, only to find to my horror, I had started erasing a drive, which I did not wish, nor wanted to be erased. Fortunately, I quickly realized my ghastly mistake, and was able to stop the erase function. I sent the drive to a company which specializes in data recovery. Fortunately for me, they recovered virtually the entire data on the drive, in  its original organized layout. These companies are sometimes able to recover data from drives, even if the partition has become corrupted in some way.
