Hello Steve:

I like having the single and double quote on the same key. On a UK
keyboard, the @ sign and double quote are swapped round.

If the ENTER key is vertical, the \key is moved to the top row, to the
left of the BACK SPACE key. If the ENTER key is horrizontal, the \ key
is above the ENTER key

On a UK keyboard, the \ key, is generally to the left of the letter
zed, thus making the left shift key, the same size as an alpha numeric
key. I am used to having a wide left shift key.

As I said previously, given time, I could and would get used to the
changes but, I just prefer the US keyboard layout.

It probably would with respect to the @ sign and double and single quotes, but it wouldn't change the fact that the left shift key is essentially split into two normal sized keys where one is the shift and the other the backslash. I actually have an old Acer laptop which has such a layout and it's a pain in the neck. Obviously there is a physical difference because I recently bought the Das Keyboard 4 Professional mechanical keyboard and they offer a "UK" version.

Hi Richard,
 
To create a desktop shortcut to your Dropbox folder try the following if your Dropbox folder is in its default location:
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue.
2. Type a single period like you would put at the end of a sentence and press enter.  This will take you to your User name folder.
3. Navigate to your, Dropbox, folder and with your Dropbox folder highlighted open the context menu with the applications key or shift + F10.
4. Navigate to, SendTo, press enter, now down arrow to, Desktop create shortcut, and press enter.  Wham bam you now have the shortcut on your desktop.

Howdy All,

 

I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.

 

1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.

 

2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.

 

3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

 

 


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Mike,

I am a database administrator, mostly with informix, but I also do some
oracle work. I mostly do work by directly logging onto a linux server via
puTTY.

I have not used TOAD for a long time, so cannot comment on how it works with
JAWS.

Oracle Enterprise Manager is working better with JAWS than it used to. It
can still be somewhat cumbersome, but I have been able to use it when I have
needed to.

Oracle Developer would give you the graphical view of a database. I had
tried using that with JAWS on my Windows 7 laptop, but it was impossible to
use due to the amount of memory on my laptop. I am now using Windows 10,
but haven't tried it there yet. It did look like it might have
possibilities with JAWS, but it seemed to be too much of a hog for my
laptop.

What is “5 blind people email address  by their name”?

The keystroke described displays the BCC field when composing a new message, BCC stands for “blind carbon copy” and it simply means that any email address you put into that field will not be seen by any other recipient or recipients.

For example, if you put John Smith’s email address in the “To” field and Mary Clark’s email address in the CC field then when John Smith gets the email he will see that you also sent the email to Mary Clark.

If, however, you put Mary Clark’s email address in the BCC field, then John Smith will get the email and Mary Clar will get the email, but it will look as if you only sent it to them and not to anybody else.

Who the 5 blind people are you are talking about I don’t know.

Also, if you repeat the keyboard shortcut sequence which was described it will again hide the BCC field.

Good afternoon,

no disrespect, you really need to do something about your typing, it's really not readable. or you need to use a spellchecker, which may not even work.

never the less,

to get the BCC field in outlook,

 

1, ctrl+n=new message,

2, alt+p=options,

3, press the letter b=bcc,

so, alt+p/b

I should mention though, that if you want to add your signature, that is not very accessible.

Hi,

 

 

Using the latest version of Jaws with latest Windows10. Is the mail app

that comes with Windows10 at all usable with Jaws? So far, all I've

managed to do is add an account, but now I can't get past the screen

with the Add Account button.

 

 

If it isn't accessible, what other email clients, other than

Thunderbird, can people recommend? I cold use Outlook,b ut that seems

like such overkill when all I want to do is get my email.

 

 

Thanks,

 

~Ann

Hi!

 

Thanks for your below.  Could you please provide specific instructions how to do this?  Deleting the shortcut from my desktop (Windows 7) is pretty straight forward, but the part about creating a new one is a little murky; particularly as regards just how it would login to my DB account?  Or, maybe I am over-thinking this, and it is more simple?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Alternatively just delete the Dropbox shortcut from your desktop and create a new shortcut which points to your Dropbox folder.

Hi,

 

I have tried doing the operation as described below to get DB to open in Windows Explorer, like how the older version worked.  However, so far I have not been successful at making this setting stick.  Is there some trick to try, or some other way of accomplishing this?

Howdy All,

 

I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.

 

1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.

 

2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.

 

3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

 

 


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Because CC and BCC aren’t the same thing.

That’s why.

What is “5 blind people email address  by their name”?

The keystroke described displays the BCC field when composing a new message, BCC stands for “blind carbon copy” and it simply means that any email address you put into that field will not be seen by any other recipient or recipients.

For example, if you put John Smith’s email address in the “To” field and Mary Clark’s email address in the CC field then when John Smith gets the email he will see that you also sent the email to Mary Clark.

If, however, you put Mary Clark’s email address in the BCC field, then John Smith will get the email and Mary Clar will get the email, but it will look as if you only sent it to them and not to anybody else.

Who the 5 blind people are you are talking about I don’t know.

Also, if you repeat the keyboard shortcut sequence which was described it will again hide the BCC field.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Thank you Steve for the suggestion.

I've been buying from them for the last 4 years. In fact, they are located not far from where I was born. They are near Portstmouth, I was born in Gosport.

My only problem in buying a Laptop from them, is that I want to have a US keyboard layout, and they cannot provide that.

I do not particularly like the UK keyboard layout. Of course, if I had no choice, I would get used to using one.

Contact Novatech, a very well-known and reputable company in your country who have built quality machines for several folks I know. If you can't find out how to do so, email me privately and I'll get you some phone numbers. They may not be in your neck of the wood though, so you may have to do this buying by mail, or they may tell you they have an outlet in or near your location.

Hello everyone:

I am looking for either a brand name laptop or one I can build myself or have built for me, which has room for not only the system hard drive but also has an additional hard drive for data.

I want the speed of an SSD drive and an HDD drive for storing my data files.

I have looked on the internet for a laptop with this configuration, with no success.

Any ideas?
