moderated Re: Help with JAWS and Math Type

Cohn, Jonathan
 

Hello,
Either the May or July release of JAWS 2021 added a feature to help with working with math and Word documents, especially if you are a braille user.
Also, I think MathTYpe is supposed to be picked up by the math reader in JAWS where you can read a complex equation part by part using left and right to go to adjacent parts, and down to get a more detailed view of the current part.
Probably easier to listen to this being done then to try and describe it, but I would suggest you look at the JAWS training site and see if they have tutorials to help.

Dear list

reading, or recognising them as a single object/graphic) and I can't

be best to take the conversation to email if there is someone who is
able to assist. I'm quite desperate as I have an MBA class block

Hi Dave,
What you see in the list view in the Recent folder are merely shortcuts, and not treated as temporary files.
These shortcuts can be safely deleted without any harm to the system or your personal files
keep in mind that this is just a history of recently accessed files, folders and locations.
Depending on which version of Windows you are using, there may be options for clearing the list automatically, but I have not looked into them.
I have shortcuts to items I access on a regular basis, so I don't
use the recent folder.
 
HTH,

Mike and others,
The Recent folder has been around since at least Windows 98, and the contents are only shortcuts to the files, folders, and urls that you have accessed.
You can choose not to use the recent folder if you wish, and if there are no items being displayed in this folder,
it is not
necessarily a fault of the operating system, but a settings change by the user.
The easiest way to get to the folder, is to type the following in the run dialogue:
 
recent
 
and press enter.
Once in the folder select one of the entries, and then open the properties of that entry, and you will see that it is a shortcut
and that at least in Windows 10 the only tab in this dialogue is the shortcut tab.
Below is an url that has information about the Recent folder.

Rick

Mike,

That's because you don't.  The recent files list is a Windows feature and Recent Files gets populated based on exactly which files you've been working with most recently.  As Sharon's message indicates, there can be quite a few because you can set the length of the "recent files list" available in programs such as MS-Word, etc.  

But you don't directly manage Recent Files, Windows does, and I'll bet my bottom dollar that no actual file ever gets stored there, just symbolic links to files.

For all practical intents and purposes, yes.  The contents of Recent Files changes constantly as various files are accessed and older entries do get "pushed out."

But the aging off algorithm is not straightforward and is almost certainly dependent on what programs are in use and what length the jump/recent files lists for each are set to.

As has already been mentioned, if you want to do your own clean up in the Recent Files folder it's perfectly safe to do so.  The worst thing you might do is shorten the list of recent files shown in a given program since some of the items used to construct that will no longer be present.

Personally, I think it's much easier, and more sensible, to use either Windows Search or Search Everything to find files that have "gone missing."  There are occasions, particularly if you cut/paste or move by accident in File Explorer, where a Recent Files entry does not get created.  A Windows Search using the docs: or file: operator to limit the search to file names or using a utility like Search Everything does find those.  And the latter is dirt simple to use and the former not all that difficult, either.

I’ve restarted my computer this morning and Insert + PageDown is once again reading my Outlook 2019 status line correctly including the number of messages in the view and the number unread. I’ve noticed that Outlook acts flaky sometimes after Windows 10 updates and it often takes a bit of time and a computer restart after those updates before it’s back to normal.

Indeed.  But what Richard offered was the direct link to the home page of the Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group on Groups.io.  Every group's home page has a section, Group Email Addresses, where the subscription, unsubscription, posting, group owner, and help message addresses are listed.  Every Groups.io member should be able to go to one of these pages, when offered, and snag the email address or addresses for that group that they need or want at the moment.

I keep hoping that Groups.io members who do interact primarily or exclusively by e-mail will still use the resources that Groups.io gives them via its own webpages when it comes to things like this.  They have a search facility for all their public groups as well, and that can come in really handy at times, provided you don't get overly specific with the search criteria.  It's one of the few places where I start with the minimum number of search terms, and then add if needed to narrow things down, rather than using several at the outset.

I'll also mention again that Groups.io gives email users all sorts of options as far as what shows up in their inboxes that are not available on other mailing list services.  Have a read through, Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx), if you're interested in knowing about them.

Yes, I have tried my instructions!  LOL  But, I don't get anything in Recent Files when I save something anywhere I save it, and I believe this is why.

When I open File Explorer it's set to open to, ThisPC, and not Quick Access, and in Folder Options on the General tab I have these options unchecked / disabled.   

 

not checked‑ Privacy Show recently used files in Quick access check box‑
not checked‑ Privacy Show frequently used folders in Quick access check box‑

 

I've set File Explorer to open to Quick Access and turned the above options on, and I'll see if I can populate the Recent Files folder now.  Thanks much.

Mike,

Have you tried the instructions given by Mike B in this message:  https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/message/91029?

If you have nothing in the Recent Items folder I would almost have to say something is wrong with your Windows installation.  This folder gets populated automatically, by Windows, on a constant and ongoing basis.

And I just tested out what I suggested previously.  I saved a file from Notepad on my desktop.  I opened the Recent Files folder (and if you sort it by Date Modified as opposed to File Name the ordering is more logical for what a Recent Files folder is all about) and located the item for that file, which is a shortcut (AKA symbolic link).  I deleted the item in Recent Files and it has no impact whatsoever on the actual file itself where it was saved, which is precisely what I had expected.

Hi, when looking through my recent files list I have noticed that not only word documents are in there but also video files I have watch.

 

Also having a better look all the files are marked as shortcuts. So, this being the way then deleting them shouldn’t make a difference to the actual file.

I’m not sure about this. I’m also using Outlook 2019 and I think something must have recently changed as a result of an update. I have changed none of my Outlook or Fusion settings and I can see the unread messages displayed on the status bar and whereas Insert + PageDown read me the status bar items yesterday, it is no longer reading it today. I’ll keep playing with different shortcut key combinations to get Fusion to again read the status bar items and will post back if I’m successful or anything changes.

Indeed.  But what Richard offered was the direct link to the home page of the Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group on Groups.io.  Every group's home page has a section, Group Email Addresses, where the subscription, unsubscription, posting, group owner, and help message addresses are listed.  Every Groups.io member should be able to go to one of these pages, when offered, and snag the email address or addresses for that group that they need or want at the moment.

I keep hoping that Groups.io members who do interact primarily or exclusively by e-mail will still use the resources that Groups.io gives them via its own webpages when it comes to things like this.  They have a search facility for all their public groups as well, and that can come in really handy at times, provided you don't get overly specific with the search criteria.  It's one of the few places where I start with the minimum number of search terms, and then add if needed to narrow things down, rather than using several at the outset.

I'll also mention again that Groups.io gives email users all sorts of options as far as what shows up in their inboxes that are not available on other mailing list services.  Have a read through, Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx), if you're interested in knowing about them.

Mike and others,
The Recent folder has been around since at least Windows 98, and the contents are only shortcuts to the files, folders, and urls that you have accessed.
You can choose not to use the recent folder if you wish, and if there are no items being displayed in this folder,
it is not
necessarily a fault of the operating system, but a settings change by the user.
The easiest way to get to the folder, is to type the following in the run dialogue:
 
recent
 
and press enter.
Once in the folder select one of the entries, and then open the properties of that entry, and you will see that it is a shortcut
and that at least in Windows 10 the only tab in this dialogue is the shortcut tab.
Below is an url that has information about the Recent folder.
 
HTH,
Rick

Hi Brian,
 
To add to what you've said and please tell me if this is correct or not, I need to have Quick Access enabled / employed for the, " symbolic links", to be stored in the Recent Files folder along with being told how many in Word.  I've never used Quick Access so I believe this is why I don't have anything stored there.  Thanks much.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

I don't know how to make copies of files to auto save to Recent Files

Mike,

That's because you don't.  The recent files list is a Windows feature and Recent Files gets populated based on exactly which files you've been working with most recently.  As Sharon's message indicates, there can be quite a few because you can set the length of the "recent files list" available in programs such as MS-Word, etc.  

But you don't directly manage Recent Files, Windows does, and I'll bet my bottom dollar that no actual file ever gets stored there, just symbolic links to files.

We were typing at the same time, and I have to say I think you've nailed it here.  The setting isn't in File Explorer options, but that doesn't matter.  I know that "Show recently opened items . . ." is on, by default (unless something changed very recently) and if it has been shut off that does nuke the recent files processing so far as File Explorer and programs are concerned because they rely on Windows to perform this function.

Mike B,

I assumed you had.  My question was posed to Mike M, but I was unclear about that, and for that I apologize.

But I have never seen a link between whether anything was displayed in Quick Access, and note the settings you noted say "Show," which suggests, when not activated, a "hide" situation is occurring, but not that the data isn't present.

Recent Files has been around since dirt, long before Quick Access, and if files aren't showing up there I suspect some other setting in File Explorer Options is at play here, and one that has been set away from the default that ships with Windows (regardless of version), but that's purely speculative on my part.  That, or some sort of privacy focused software has tweaked something to prevent Windows from populating Recent Files.

Hi Brian,
 
Yes, I have tried my instructions!  LOL  But, I don't get anything in Recent Files when I save something anywhere I save it, and I believe this is why.
When I open File Explorer it's set to open to, ThisPC, and not Quick Access, and in Folder Options on the General tab I have these options unchecked / disabled.   
 
not checked Privacy Show recently used files in Quick access check box
not checked Privacy Show frequently used folders in Quick access check box
 
I've set File Explorer to open to Quick Access and turned the above options on, and I'll see if I can populate the Recent Files folder now.  Thanks much.

Mike,

Have you tried the instructions given by Mike B in this message:  https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/message/91029?

If you have nothing in the Recent Items folder I would almost have to say something is wrong with your Windows installation.  This folder gets populated automatically, by Windows, on a constant and ongoing basis.

And I just tested out what I suggested previously.  I saved a file from Notepad on my desktop.  I opened the Recent Files folder (and if you sort it by Date Modified as opposed to File Name the ordering is more logical for what a Recent Files folder is all about) and located the item for that file, which is a shortcut (AKA symbolic link).  I deleted the item in Recent Files and it has no impact whatsoever on the actual file itself where it was saved, which is precisely what I had expected.

Mike,

I can't answer that, at least not precisely, as I do not know of any way to disable Quick Access other than to toggle the display of same on or off.

If you don't have a recent files list showing up in things like Word, Excel, Paint, etc., I can't explain that.  If I even so much as bring up the context menu for any start menu item, I get a recents list associated with it.  But I have never disabled the display of Quick Access, either.

But the recents lists predate Quick Access by quite a long time.
