moderated How to delete favorites in the edge browser

Kimber Gardner
 

Hello,

In the olden times of internet explorer I used to delete unwanted
favorites by accessing the folder in windows explorer, moving down the
list and pressing the delete key. Now that I'm using Edge that no
longer seems to be an option. Although I located the folder where the
bookmarks are supposed to live, I can't seem to open it.

Is there a better, i.e. simpler way to delete favorites I no longer
use? My favorites have become cluttered and often more trouble than
they are worth. So hoping someone can help. When I googled this
question all the instructions read like click on this, click on that
which was not at all helpful.

Any help is appreciated.

Kim

List,

 

For years I have used this program to enlarge the standard size of the cursor.  It worked well with Windows 10.  Before I install it on my Windows 11 machines, does anyone know of any issues regarding this program?

 

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Hi,

I'm confused. This Email is from John Cooper, but signed by Ian.

Anyway, if you care to contact me off list, I am a UK web host and can do as
little or as much as you like. We have packages just for hosting, or for
complete web management, where we can upload images etc for you.

All the best

Steve

Hi group,

First time asking a question, so please be kind?

Have been asked to set up a web site for a local charity and I'm wondering
if anyone knows of host providers that are accessible to JAWS? Running
latest Jaws and windows 365. Any help would be great. I'm based in the UK,
but if hosts are better set up in any other country, I can put this to the
board.

Warmest regards

Ian

Thanks for backing my point that there are numerous synthesizers that JAWS
can use.
And, I have a whole bunch of them on both a desktop and laptop including a
TripleTalk USB external.

No, I think to be fair, they only exist in Windows 10 and up.

Actually, JAWS also has Eloquence as well as Nuance synthesisers. But it can
use any SAPI5 compliant synth that you happen to have on your PC.

It also can use the Windows OneCore synthesiser that is built into all
copies of Windows.

All the best

Hi Mark,

the synthesizer used by JAWS are called Vocalizer Expressive Version 2 and
is a product from Nuance (www.nuance.com). If you want a good overview and
details about synthesizers (also known as Text To Speach = TTS), you can
read more here:

<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_synthesis>

The Voacalizer synthesizer used by JAWS is the same synthesizer included in
the Mac World (iPhone, iPad, iMac and so on), maybe in another version.
There are only a few TTS systems out there, for example Microsoft Core
Voices, Acapella, Vocalizer - which are the most famous voices.

Of course, if you block your location like that, you may impact the way some sites work that may need it.

Hi, I have the most recent version of Google Chrome. I go to my health insurance web site and I enter my user id and password. I then get the message “This site can access your location, change this setting in the address bar.” I looked in settings for something to make some type of change and couldn’t find anything. Well I wasn’t sure what I was looking to change. I cleared out browsing data and the message still appears. I’m taken back to the log on screen and each time I enter my user id and password the message still appears. Any thoughts?

If you want to forbid ANY site from asking for (or accessing your location):
1. Open Chrome Settings.
2. Navigate to the Privacy and Security Settings
3. In those settings, navigate to Site Settings and open.
4. In Site Settings, Permissions Section, the first option is Location, navigate to it and open it.
5. The default radio button, Sites can ask for your location, will be selected.  Go to the next associated radio button, Don't allow sites to see your location, and activate it.
6. Optional, beneath that radio button is the Customized Behaviors section, there are two subsections, Not allowed to see your location and Allowed to see your location each of which will contain a list of sites you've previously denied or allowed location access for.  You can selectively delete these if desired.

Google isn't what's accessing your location, per se, in the instances under discussion here, but the websites you're browsing.  Google is keeping records regarding which you wish to allow or disallow that access for.  If you turn off Google's ability to ask permission then, effectively, all websites other than those you may have already allowed will be disallowed going forward, as you are telling Chrome not to ask you on behalf or sites if they can access your location - which means they can't, and you won't be asked if they can.

No, because if you've blocked Chrome from asking to allow location sharing, it's not Chrome that's presenting this question.

The steps I gave are an "absolute block."  If followed, Chrome will not ask for location sharing.

The only thing I can suggest is doing the check I mentioned in step #6.  If that site was somehow already allowed it might ask again, but that shouldn't happen, either, since if allowed it doesn't need to ask, it just grabs the location of the device.

Hi Mike,

Don't believe that the synthesizers issue is quite so simple.
There are numerous choices so I doubt that all of them come from the same
developer.
Below is a hyperlink to a company developing a text-to-speach software. This company sells licenses for some synthesizers as well. One of them is Cerence synthesizer the successor of Nuance Vocalizer Voices. If you have a look there you can see there are a lot of languages and as well a lot of voices for each language. If you scroll down you will see most of the voices used in JAWS as well. I hope this will convince you.

First link (voices and languages of Vocalizer):
<https://nextup.com/cerence/>

Second link: Voices from Vocalicer for JAWS:

All the best

Well this is very ironic.  I have had the same issue.  I finally got tired of hearing it.  I contacted Google via Be My Eyes.  It took a bit of time, but we did get it fixed.

 

If you use Brian's method, it will stop the message for all web sites.  This may or may not be what you want especially if you land on a new web site and want to configure it differently.

 

To get rid of this message for the current web site, do the following.

 

You can get to your site settings by selecting "view site information" located in the address bar right before the site address. To do this press alt-d to go to the address bar.  Next shift tab once.  Press enter.  Then follow the steps below:

  1. Tab down and select site settings
  2. This will take you to site permissions
  3. Tab down to location 
  4. We changed your settings from "allow" to "block"
  5. To go back to the previous setting select "allow" (if you change your mind)

 

When done press control-F4 to close the settings window.
