Subject: Reading PDF Documents with Line Numbers

In my work, I frequently have to read transcripts of proceeding where each
of the lines is numbered. When I open a transcript like this in Adobe,
frequently all of the line numbers will be at the top of the page and I have
to keep arrowing down to get to the text. I know this is a unique problem,
but is there anything JAWS can do that will help with this? Right now it
takes me longer to read these documents than it should.


moderated Re: in win10 in a folder how do you tell Win10 to delete only all the files that have a same particular extension but not the other files in that folder that have different extensions?

 

Apparently, I'm not alone in having the "Current Folder" option to limit search results fail to work.  A very recent topic on answers.microsoft.com:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/file-explorer-search-current-folder-option-doesnt/cbef261b-0ab0-47d9-a784-1598a550866b

Checking Feedback Hub there are currently three items open that turn up if you use "current folder" as your search phrase, and all have been open for months and note the issue is in Build 18363.  I've just added a comment to all three of them that this is still going on as of today's date.

Well, it also depends on how you have search itself configured.  It is important to make sure that your default is "Current Folder" rather than All Subfolders, or to switch to only search in Current Folder rather than All Subfolders.

The current default behavior is "All Subfolders."   I am having a huge problem figuring out how to either reconfigure this permanently or even to get the search to limit itself only to "Current Folder" with keyboard shortcuts.   I can get to "Current Folder" via ALT+JS,F after having run the search, but it doesn't change the results.  I can only get the results to change sometimes via "point and click" application of that ribbon control item, too.

This used to be a simple matter to reset default search behavior, as this question from 2017 on https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-files/windows-10-explorer-search-default-current-folder/fbd72e0c-880e-453d-9e85-9228767fa9de notes:

hey folks,

 

is there a way to set the default preference for the explorer search from "all subfolders" to "current folder"?

 

In Win7 there was an option in the "folder and search options" and in Win8 there was a RegKey "SearchSubFolders" under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Search\Preferences.

 

In Win10 the option is not available and the RegKey has no effect.

 

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Philipp

I'll keep looking, but so far getting a consistent "Current Folder" only result is just not happening at the moment, and I've always been able to get that to work before (and usually set that as my default, as it's the exception where I want all subfolders searched).

Depending on how many levels deep the folder is.
using the command prompt, and then like the good old DOS days, do CD\foldername, and again the backslash, next folder until your crompt shows c:\ followed by the full path.
Then type del *.mp3
and they will all be deleted just in that folder.
Then type exit and hit enter to get out of the command prompt.
I'mwriting this on an iPhone with braille input, so hopefully that made sense.
If not, I can rewrite it on my computer in the morning.

It is much, much easier to use the search function (CTRL+E) and enter the search criteria for all the files you want, then Select All, then delete.

So, once you're in the folder, say you want to delete all PDF files in the folder.  Hit CTRL+E then type *.pdf in the search box then hit enter.  The search will return only files in that folder that are PDF files.  Hit CTRL+A to select all, then hit the DEL key.  You're done.

Of course, the search criteria can be anything that's appropriate, so if you wanted only PDF files that start with, say, Nov, then type Nov*.pdf in the search box and hit enter.  You can use any extension and you can combine things with OR if you want, say all JPG files OR PDF files, that would be *.jpg OR *.PDF, and you'll only get files with one of those two extensions back.

Hand gathering is far more error prone.

Hank,

         You can hit the Windows Key, immediately type cmd, then hit Enter.  Or you can hit Windows Key+R, enter cmd in Open text box, then hit Enter.  Or, you can go to the Windows Search box and enter either the word command or just cmd, and hit enter.

          Any of the above will instantly open a Command Prompt window where you will be sitting in your HOME folder, typically C:\Users\{insert appropriate acct here} and you will have focus just after the command prompt itself.

When you open the document, does adobe not ask you what reading order you'd prefer?  If so, have you tried the various options? If not, maybe you should check in the edit menu for the accessibility assistant and turn the reading order feature back on.  May not help, but this sounds like what the feature should have been meant for.

Hi, Ratshtron. I probably should have put that in, but I assumed he wanted
to delete files in a folder below his user folder. When I do a Command

Hello,

In Win10 when you are wanting to get rid of some particular files
all with the same extension in a folder, but not the other files
with different extensions in that same folder, is there a way to
tell Win10 to in that particular folder to only delete all the
files that have that same extension that you want to delete?

Llike in the old days, when we were still using dos and in dos to
delete only all the files with a particular same extension in a
directory, the dos command once you were located in that particular
directory was the dos command delete *. and the 3 letters
corresponding to the extension you particularly wanted to delete.

If maybe someone can help me with this, this would be so very much
appreciated. Much, much thanks in advance for any help with this.

moderated Re: in win10 how do you get to the command prompt?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

You can either type the Windows key, then R to run the Run dialog, then type Shell:AppsFolder,

 

or you can create a shortcut for the AppsFolder on your system, and in the target, type

 

%windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder

 

Once in the apps folder, use first-letter navigation, or arrow toward the right with Right Arrow, and find Command Prompt. Press ENTER twice, and you will be at the C: prompt. From there, you can navigate to the directory you wish, then perform the delete command.

 

You may also find Command Prompt at the search box when you press the Windows key.

As a longtime IE user until recently, after setting up a screen-sharing session through the Ara.apple.com site, I would just press Control N to run the app to connect with a support person.

Now, using Chrome, when attempting to connect with tech support, I receive an error message that I need permission to open third-party apps and that the app is not approved by Microsoft. There is a tab to change permissions, though pressing enter does not change the permission status.

 

I have tried briefly using Brave. However, after downloading it, and then opening it up, there is a lot of nonsense about earning rewards points and I haven’t taken the time to see how I can change this when it opens.

For those of us who are not blessed with technological acumen, it is a good thing that this lists is in existence.

 

Best to all,  Justin

Tab to,apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, press enter to save / close.

Hello everyone,

 

Some settings on my machine seem to have changed, though I didn’t make the changes. Please give me step by step directions so I can change them back. I’m running Jaws 2020 and Windows 10.
