I'm not sure which version of Outlook you're using. I'm using Office 365 and use the Windows Application Menu.

1. Focus on a message in the message list
2. Open the Windows Application Menu (WINDOWS APPLICATION KEY or SHIFT-F10)
3. Press ENTER on Follow-up
4. Within he Follow-up menu, press ENTER on "No Date"

After setting the Follow-up, set your email arrangement to "Flag Status."

This puts your flagged messages at the top and your other messages sorted by date at the bottom.

Messages with "No Date" follow-ups are always at the top.

To arrange messages by Flag Status:

1. Open the View Ribbon (ALT-V)
2. Activate the "Arrange By" (AB)
3. Within the list, select "Flag Status" (L)

Hey Yall,


First of all I would like to thank those who assisted me in trying to fix my database connection problem for my local environment. With that being said, I posted my question to a Facebook group and was told to move from Wamp to Laragon.


I installed Laragon and my database connection problem was solved. So, I am sharing this with those of you who are looking for an accessible Windows server software. As stated, I installed it and the installation process as well as the software is accessible.


You can download Laragon at www.laragon.org.


Hope this helps.

Hi,

They are essentially the same thing – differences in terminology. In case one creates multiple user accounts in Windows 10, users will see a list of users to choose from and asked for credentials in any number of ways – passwords, pin, picture password, fingerprint, iris scan and so on.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: Windows 10 "Sign-in" versus Windows 7 "Logon" Screens

 

Hi!

 

I am new to Windows 10.  I am using it under JAWS 2019.  In Windows 7, there was a “logon” screen that listed the various user accounts.  In Windows 10, there seems to be a “sign-in” screen.  Right now, there is just one user for this sign-in screen - me.  So, what is the difference between the “sign-in” versus the “logon” screens?  What happens in Windows 10 when I add a couple of additional user accounts?  How does this “sign-in” screen change?  With JAWS, what is the best way to setup Windows 10 to handle logging-in?  For example, can (or should) I disable the “sign-in” screen and instead use a “logon” screen?

 

Thanks,

Richard

As far as their respective functions, they're absolutely synonymous.

There are now Microsoft Account linked and local Windows 10 User Accounts, and there were only the equivalent of local under Windows 7.  But, still, that doesn't change the way the Sign-in screen works, which is essentially the same way that the Log-in screen did under Windows 7 when there are multiple accounts.

If you have more than one user they also show up in Windows 10, you can tab to the one you want, press enter and it will ask for that user’s password or PIN (if you set up a PIN).

There is a sleep time in the menu of that Braille display, you can get

That is not normal.

Remember that anybody now can download and install the Jaws 2020 public beta and you loose nothing since it runs perfectly well and completely separately alongside Jaws 2019 or any other Jaws version you have installed.
For people who are still on Jaws 2018, Jaws 18 or, even worse, Jaws 17 which you really should not be on any more if you use Windows 10, this is a great opportunity to use Jaws 2020 for the next 5 or 6 weeks until the final release. At this point of course you could only run it in demo mode unless you have an SMA left or decide to purchase one. If you are in the US you can always opt for the annual $90/year subscription.

When I was still running Windows 7 Excel and Outlook often had issues and usually Jaws would crash in the process as well and while it’s hard to put an exact number on it, I would say crashes under Windows 10 are at least 90% reduced.

So I’m noticing that I’m having issues with Outlook on Windows 10.  Outlook continually and periodically keeps crashing for no apparent reason.  Is this an MS Outlook issue or has anyone else noticed this specifically with Windows 10?  I had some issues like this with Windows 7, but it seems like this is happening more frequently with Windows 10.
