Hi, Madison. All this annoying stuff is in Settings>Privacy, search and
services, in Edge.

1. Open Edge.
2. Press ALT plus F, followed by the letter S for Settings.
3. TAB once to the settings categories, and arrow down to Privacy, Search
and
Services, and press ENTER.
4. There will be several Check boxes, and you don't want them to say
checked, if
you don't want to hear about them when you are in Edge.
5. The check boxes are as follows, with new ones being added in new updates,

Save time and money with Shopping in Microsoft Edge Show opportunities to
support causes and nonprofits you care about Show travel recommendations in
Microsoft Edge

The other thing you might want to turn off is also in Settings, (ALT plus F,
followed by S), under the category, Edge Bar.

Automatically open Edge bar when the computer starts

Make sure this is unchecked, or you may have all sorts of suggestions
popping
up.

Hi Madison,
Perhaps someone else can tell you how to do this, but you can go into the
settings and set your start up window for Edge to come up as blank. Then it
comes up in the edit field for searching. You can even change your search
engine if you like too.

Thank you Adrian. I wasn’t the person who asked the question, but I’m so glad to read your suggestion. I’m tired of searching through Amazon for a particular item and having to read through scores of items that are nothing like what I want. This is great.

Actually, Bill, it just might work. For example, I frequently use Google to search for items on Amazon because it does a much better job of limiting results to specifics. An easy example is a search for a specific symphony. With Amazon, you can get a slew of results for the particular composer, but Amazon doesn’t seem to find particular symphonies, just a long list of many recordings where “symphony” is in the recording’s details. Or it might be a pillow with specific dimensions. It’s critical to begin the Google search with the website name followed by a colon, then as much specific detail as you can provide. For instance:

 

Amazon.com: Mozart, symphony 38

 

If I know the conductor of the performance I want, I’ll include it.

I just tried this and pressed the Jaws cursor-the minus on the numb pad.

 

Thanks. I was getting the number of pages by using the Jaws cursor to move up and down the document. If I was not on the first page it might say something like 3 of 8 or 4 of 8 and so on depending on what page I was on.

You can find out the number of pages in a PDF document, among other metadata, by going to the document’s Properties.

Once you are in the document, press control d, and you will then have a number of tabs to tab through. To read the info in these tabs, you need to either use the Jaws cursor or virtualize the window using Jaws + alt + w. Unfortunately, I don’t remember which of these tabs the page number is in, so I can only point you in the general direction of the answer.

 

 

Here is the Adobe page on properties and metadata, which doesn’t mention keyboard commands, of course

No, I am saying the opposite. If you just paste the text from the pdf into Word, you are not getting the benefit of Word's conversion process. So try opening the pdf in Word, and look at what you get versus pasting the text into Word, and looking at what you get with that method. Try them both.

Hi,
As Kestrell and others have pointed out, you can run into various problems with PDF's. For best results generally, use Adobe Acrobat Reader rather than one of the browser PDF readers. And you can read about the vvarious issues encountered and how to deal with them in Chapter 10 of my book.

No, I am saying the opposite. If you just paste the text from the pdf into Word, you are not getting the benefit of Word's conversion process. So try opening the pdf in Word, and look at what you get versus pasting the text into Word, and looking at what you get with that method. Try them both.

Hi,

Thanks for the colon. I’ve not been using that one. I use this all the time rather than using the search on web sites. Some of them are flakey and others useless. If I wanted the Florida Reef pattern by Petra Breakstone from ravelry, I put ravelry Florida Reef Petra. It would bring it up as the first one in the list on the google search.

Actually, Bill, it just might work. For example, I frequently use Google to search for items on Amazon because it does a much better job of limiting results to specifics. An easy example is a search for a specific symphony. With Amazon, you can get a slew of results for the particular composer, but Amazon doesn’t seem to find particular symphonies, just a long list of many recordings where “symphony” is in the recording’s details. Or it might be a pillow with specific dimensions. It’s critical to begin the Google search with the website name followed by a colon, then as much specific detail as you can provide. For instance:

 

Amazon.com: Mozart, symphony 38

 

If I know the conductor of the performance I want, I’ll include it.
