Re: Trying to format a krupt usb stick

Dave Durber
 

Hello There:
 
I would delete the larger partition, if it existed but, when the program I was using to create the Windows installation partition from the .ISO file, would be deleted from the memory stick, I had to agree, even though, I had reduced the maximum available storage space to 40 GB, to make sure there would be enough space for the smaller Windows installation partition.
 
Sincerely:
 
Dave Durber

Sorry I hadn't been following this thread, but have you tried deleting not the 7.5Gb partition, but the larger one instead? Just a thought.

Hello Brian:

 

I have a 64 GB memory stick, on which I created a partition to install Windows from an ISO image.

 

Unfortunately, when I tried to use the Windows Partition and Format utility to remove the partition containing the Windows installation and return the memory stick back to 64 GB, I got an error telling me that the "Delete Volume function was Unavailable", which meant that the partition could not be deleted/removed.

 

Following the information you gave in your previous message, I downloaded and used the ImageUSB utility.

 

The problem is, that when I selected the option to zero the USB Memory stick to return it to its maximum storage capacity of 64 GB, ImageUSB  got rid of the information in the Windows installation partition but, it did not delete/remove the 7.5 GB partition, which was the size of the Windows Installation partition.

 

Any suggestions as to what I may have not done correctly?

 

Sincerely:

 

Dave Durber

I'm not quite sure what "corrupt" means in this instance.

It is possible for thumb/jump/flash drives used to create bootable media can seem to lose a lot of the capacity they once had.  The folks who created MemTest86 have a lesser known utility, ImageUSB, that has as its primary purpose creating multiple bootable USB drives using the same ISO image at one time.  It can also be used, however, to reclaim that "lost" space on those drives that experience it by using the "Zero USB drive" option in the utility.

I've had 2 USB thumb drives that have had the "lost capacity" issue after being used to create bootable media and using ImageUSB to zero them out again has reclaimed it each time.

To add one more thing, in Windows 10 you can still assign hotkeys to applications, like control-alt-j for Jaws.
I ran Classic shell when I first updated my previous computer from Windows 8 to 10, and after a while, removed it and focused on Windows 10. It isn't that hard, and in fact, I like it much better.

Hi Tom,

I completely agree with Dean, you should learn Windows 10 as it is, you have
a desktop just as in Windows 7 except you could, if you wanted, have
multiple desktops and switch between them with a keystroke, you have a start
menu which still has a list of all your applications and you have the
Taskbar which I find extremely useful since you can pin your most used
applications to it and access them by pressing the Windows Key+Number on the
Number Row. For example, if you have Google Chrome pinned as the first
application on the taskbar, then Outlook, then Excel and then Skype you can
press Windows Key+1 for Chrome, Windows Key+2 for Outlook, Windows Key+3 for
Excel and Windows Key+4 for Skype. You can go all the way up to Windows
Key+0 which means you can put 10 applications there and I don't even think
most of use that many.
Furthermore the Cortana search box which you get when pressing the windows
key is a great way to quickly find an application or folder or setting.
It will take a bit of practice and experimentation, but between the desktop,
the taskbar and using the search box I don't hardly ever even use the start
menu any more.

Regards,
Sieghard

All told, I haven't found a justification for the apprehension some users
feel about switching to Windows 10. I can't think of a setting that somehow
makes Windows 10 more like Windows 7 than it would have been otherwise.
There were definite things one had to do with windows 8, but not Windows 10,
at least not that I can think of.

Subject: Switching To Classic View In Windows 10 for Windows 7-type View

Hello, everyone.

I am about to purchase a new laptop, which, of course, will have Windows 10
as its operating system.

I have heard from several sources that you can configure a Windows 10
computer to have a classic view, which resembles the Windows 7
configuration.

This sounds quite appealing to me, since it will make the switch to Windows
10 much easier.

Can someone tell me if this is true; and if it is, can you tell me how to
accomplish this?

I hope this isn't considered too "off topic", but I can say that I'll be
using the latest build of Jaws 2018 on the new Windows 10 machine.

Thank you!

Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Subject: Switching To Classic View In Windows 10 for Windows 7-type View

Hello, everyone.

I am about to purchase a new laptop, which, of course, will have Windows 10
as its operating system.

I have heard from several sources that you can configure a Windows 10
computer to have a classic view, which resembles the Windows 7
configuration.

This sounds quite appealing to me, since it will make the switch to Windows
10 much easier.

Can someone tell me if this is true; and if it is, can you tell me how to
accomplish this?

I hope this isn't considered too "off topic", but I can say that I'll be
using the latest build of Jaws 2018 on the new Windows 10 machine.

Thank you!

Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Switching To Classic View In Windows 10 for Windows 7-type View

 

Hi Tom,

I completely agree with Dean, you should learn Windows 10 as it is, you have a desktop just as in Windows 7 except you could, if you wanted, have multiple desktops and switch between them with a keystroke, you have a start menu which still has a list of all your applications and you have the Taskbar which I find extremely useful since you can pin your most used applications to it and access them by pressing the Windows Key+Number on the Number Row. For example, if you have Google Chrome pinned as the first application on the taskbar, then Outlook, then Excel and then Skype you can press Windows Key+1 for Chrome, Windows Key+2 for Outlook, Windows Key+3 for Excel and Windows Key+4 for Skype. You can go all the way up to Windows Key+0 which means you can put 10 applications there and I don't even think most of use that many.
Furthermore the Cortana search box which you get when pressing the windows key is a great way to quickly find an application or folder or setting.
It will take a bit of practice and experimentation, but between the desktop, the taskbar and using the search box I don't hardly ever even use the start menu any more.

Regards,
Sieghard

All told, I haven't found a justification for the apprehension some users
feel about switching to Windows 10. I can't think of a setting that somehow
makes Windows 10 more like Windows 7 than it would have been otherwise.
There were definite things one had to do with windows 8, but not Windows 10,
at least not that I can think of.

Go into advanced sharing and make sure that the private, public and guest networks are all set to share files and printers. Then, make sure the password protected sharing radio button is set to off rather than on.
Your network's security will not be compromised since it's only being used by you and your wife.

I have a Windows 7 machine and my wife just got a Windows 10 machine. I need to use screen readers to access everything and sometimes have to work on her computer. It sure would be nice if I did not have to relearn where a function or command was on her computer. I had both computers on a network and they communicated nicely until her computer auto updated it's self and now I can't get onto her computer through my network from my computer. It keeps asking for a user name and pass word which I never set up for. How do I turn this off on her computer, so I can access it from my computer again?

Hi Tom,


I've been running windows 10 since it came out andI love it. People complain about windows 10, but I have not had a problem with it.  There was one update about a year ago that caused a problem, butg Microsoft fixed that problem in about two days.


Windows 10 is more like windows 7 than was windows 8.  Good luck with your new Windows 10 computer.

Hi,
It is not recommended to turn off the sign in because it leaves your system completely open to anyone who might access your computer. As I recall you are on Windows 10, if so, tap the Windows key, type account and hit enter.
Arrow down to sign in options (I think it is called) and you can change things in there.

You can turn on the Windows startup sound in the Sound schemes. I think there is something about Fast Startup skipping the sound but I don't recall those steps right now. Not enough coffee this morning, grin.

Yess, after having a lot of isues with it, and having to keep taking it back to the shop for adjustment, plus, I just couldn't get on with it!

So, here i am, back in the fold, and glad to be so, as i missed the banter with everyone. I also missed the friendliness and help I got.

I've just come out of hospital a fortnight ago after having fallen and broken my hip, but i'm coming on not too bad!

Thanks bill.

Hi, Val. You can still get the Startup music. It depends how your computer was set up. If you have a local Windows account, it is very easy to remove the password so you don't need to log in every time the computer starts. If you have an account which was set up to log in with Microsoft, it is more difficult.

Did you give up the Mac, Val?

Nice to hear from you again.

Hi!

Can anyone tell me if you have to log in every time you start up your
pc, or is there away you can avoid doing so?

Also, can you still get the jingle on the start up menue?

Nice to be back on the list with everyone.

Hi!

Could someone advise me how to download and set up chrome on my pc.

I am having quite a bit trouble with IE not responding, so thought i'd switch to chrome, as I don't know if firefocks is reliable with Jaws.

Thanks for any help you can give.


Val.

hello;
if you absolutely don't want to sign in when you bootup your computer,
you can do the following to have the computer boot directly to the desktop.


once your computer has booted up to the desktop,

1, windows-key+r=run,
2, type in: netplwiz press enter,

3, you should see this text,
Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
check box checked,
you need to uncheck this box.
now you need to go to ok button.


The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power of a dream.
