Yes, Me too.


sorry Glen. You are correct and as often is the case MS changes things and takes away your choices... in that you can no longer get the .ISO directly from the ms site if you are running windows. You can use developer tools to spoof a non windows browser and they will show up. or use a non windows machine or a 3rd party download site or use Rufus to get it.

I imagine this is to reduce tech support costs...

You are correct on this, too, but I personally use the MCT because it can (and often does) build an ISO file that is more recent as far as the patches that have been applied than the static ones you can download.  It also doesn't really take any additional time of significance and is, for many, quite a bit more user friendly.  

But no matter what, you can download the Windows 10 ISO under Windows (any Windows).  Even Rufus now has a feature allowing the end user to download the ISO for any version of Windows 10, including ancient ones.

Well perhaps they have changed it from a few months back, because I spent a couple hours at the Microsoft site and only found an EXE file to download, and never was offered an ISO until I went to the site with Linux.
Can you provide a link for an ISO specifically?

Dear List,

 

I'm using Windows 10, JAWS latest update, and Office 2019. I use Gmail through Windows Mail because I find it easier.

 

A few months ago, for reasons I still don't know, all my emails to the group here (and some email to certain companies) were unreadable at the recipients' end. It got fixed somehow, and now it has begun again. I am sending this note to the list pasted in from a txt document. But what I  normally do is to create and send new messages through Windows Mail. Is there a setting in Gmail that I'm missing? I can't figure this out.

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Cheerfully,

 

Shirley

With the ISO, you can burn it to DVD or USB, or use it in VmWare.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but when I went that far, I didn't want to wipe my system just to get the ISO, and that was the sense that I got while going that route.

That is absolutely incorrect.  The Media Creation Tool (MCT) provided by Microsoft always gives you the option to create media for use on another computer, and when selected that will cause the ISO that is the current one to be downloaded.

I've posted these instructions many times, and the first covers getting the ISO file using the MCT while the second covers using the MCT to create a bootable USB drive with the Windows 10 install media on it:

Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Create Bootable Win10 Install Media on a USB Thumb Drive

and if you happen to have fetched the ISO file using the first set of instructions, there is no need to re-fetch it using the second.  You can simply burn it to bootable USB media using Rufus or a similar utility.

One never needs to use a different OS to fetch a Windows 10 ISO unless one has a dead machine.

My only note is that the ISO offered will only be good for the duration of support for the 20H2 release, and once you go to 21H1 or later, should not be used.

But it's certainly the correct ISO of this moment.  I just don't want anyone to think that any given Windows 10 ISO file is "the" ISO file and has a perpetual shelf life.

Also, if anyone needs an ISO of Windows 10 for installation, I'll give a link to it on my Open Drive.
I wanted it because I installed windows 10 inside my windows 7, so if I do need or want windows 10, I can boot to windows 7 and open VmWare and launch windows 10.
If anyone does this, and you keep a backup of the folder where windows 10 is installed, and if your windows 10 gets infected beyond repair, you can just copy it from the backup folder for launching in VmWare.
I'll include VmWare below too, in case anyone wants to install an operating system within their operating system.
I was able to authorize windows 10 with my windows 7 product key, and they both work fine.

Hoping this email was not needed and you are on your way.

The directions for SFC & DISM are mostly correct, the option you were given for DISM is the third option to use after the first two switches had been run.

If you are still convinced that your OS has gone off the deep-end, I like the media creation tool solution.

From the following  page you can choose the update now button or the download the tool button. I think either of these would solve your problems.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

Just as a parting thought, during the JAWS installs that would not complete, you are certain you are placing a checkmark into the, I agree checkbox, I think it is labeled as such, and then pressing enter. I found early on that the text for these dialogs was not reading but if remembered to use the space bar and then enter, your install should proceed. Hoping this last was the issue over using the media creation tool or update assistant.

Hi, you can reset your PC in windows 10. using the reset this PC in settings. I am on a win 7 machine right now so i cant check the steps. You can also download the windows 10 update assistant and it will reset the PC with your old programs and data or do a clean install. Both methods have this option. You should runSFC and DISM. Before doing a total reset. Here are the instructions:

Fixing “Weird Issues” under Windows 8 or Windows 10 Using the System File Checker (SFC) and Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management (DISM)

If you are having "weird problems" with any Windows system, the first thing you should do is to run the System File Checker (SFC).  Open a Command Prompt window using the "Run as Administrator" option.  The easiest way to do this is to hit the Windows Key, immediately enter the text “Command Prompt” and getting the Command Prompt desktop app returned as the first item.  Gain focus on it and bring up the context menu either via right click or hitting the menu/applications key [if your machine has one] or Shift+F10 if it does not then selecting “Run as administrator” from the context menu that appears.  Once that elevated command prompt window is opened, enter:

SFC /scannow

When it's finished look at its output to see if it found any corrupt files and whether it was able to fix them.

If SFC reports that it was unable to fix something, on Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems it's also worth running the following command, also in a Command Prompt window that's been opened with "Run as Adminstrator":

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

DISM should be able to fix errors that SFC may not be able to fix.  If you wish to be really thorough, after running DISM, and presuming it reports that all has been fixed, shutdown and restart your machine and run SFC one final time.  The SFC result should be clean.

Hi Kevin/all,

In the old days of kindle, when it was jaws17-18 I think, I experienced this and if I remember well, the way I went through this was by using the right arrow and then going back, or using down arrow for a few lines and again going back. Then it all reverted to normal, until my good dell was destroyed by lighting on the 7th of December. I hastily purchased a new one, good but not that good, they have installed windows home, I have jaws 2021 and I am totally unable to read my kindle stuff in braille, nor does it speak and I am still left in the dark as to what I could do.

It seems very possible that there might be a problem with the installed memory in the system. A few months ago, I had a very similar problem with an HP laptop. Programs would not install, and if they did, they sometimes ran properly, and sometimes they froze.
 
After I purchased new memory, which were the fastest speed memory chips for that particulr HP system, I installed a new installation of Windows, instaled all the software, and now, touch wood, the system, is not only running faster, Windows and all the software seem to be running as they should.

I haven’t a clue as to what has happened to titlist there any way I can reset the computer, and get a   fresh start with it? How could I do that and keep the programs I have? Is there anything I can do? This is an ASUS computer, 3 years old? Thanks for putting up with my earlier emails. Jim.

Someone also made another suggestion which I tried and found it works--go to the Chat windows where the messages are, select all (control+a), copy to Clipboard, open Notepad, then paste and then save. I like this way best.

the speech history feature in JAWS can also be used to copy the address.
press insert+spacebar and then h, which lists the last 50 items that
JAWS has spoken. navigate the virtual window with standard cursor
navigation keystrokes, select, copy and paste the information where ever
you want.

Virtualize the cursor with insert alt 2.

You can copy everything then.

Use escape to get out of the virtualized window when you are ready too.

Dear Listers:

When you are taking part in a Zoom meeting and somebody sends you a link
to a podcast or a website in the Zoom Chat, is there a way using JAWS
that you can copy that link for use later on?
