Well, it seems to be less obvious these days.

I’ll post a link to a Microsoft support page below, but one way to get there is to press alt+q, type cell width, arrow down to cell width and hit enter.

 

Maybe there is a more direct way.

 

Here is the page I got from searching the web:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-the-column-width-and-row-height-72f5e3cc-994d-43e8-ae58-9774a0905f46

Hello, I’m using most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I’m also using Office 2016. I want to change the width of a cell. When I got to the spot to change the width it said it was 8.11. Is that the number of characters that can fit in the cell?

Then to change the width of a entire column, I would have to highlight the column and then make the size of the cell wider. Cheers, Kevin

Mr. Kennedy is correct that no matter how many times you subscribe using the same e-mail address you are simply subscribed.  If you were to send 10 subscribe requests you won't get 10 copies of every message, because accounts are based on an e-mail address used when subscribing, and those accounts are unique.

There are plenty of instances where Groups.io, or any e-mail list service, or any individual e-mail user, may end up waiting a long time for a given message to make it anywhere, because all it takes is one "constipated server" in the bucket brigade to cause whatever lands on it to stay there until the issue is fixed.  The list server software itself can also encounter issues.

Waiting it out for a reasonable period of time, which is many hours to a day, is the way to go before starting to check on whether things are OK, and if they're not sending messages to any group will prove nothing, as they will be held.  Send a message to support@groups.io, and only after at least 12 hours have passed, if not more.  These kinds of "burps" simply happen, and do tend to get fixed by the powers that be.

Yeah…accents kind of ebb and flow and they don’t really regard physical borders, but are influenced by everything in the cultural environment. I happen to think people just across the lake in Rochester NY (Raachster) sound really different/distinctive, but to my friend in Mousouri, they sound “Canadian”, too. And of course we have many Canadian regional accents as well just in the english-speaking areas…martime (newfoundland in particular) being perhaps the most instantly recognisable.

IN fact, most U.S. natives make fun of the Canadians for saying aboot.

moderated Re: Help please can I move outlook folders from one computer to another

 

While I agree with everything that's been said about using IMAP or Exchange (server side access protocols) rather than POP3 (where all storage is client side after download) I do want to note that it is possible to create local folders in Outlook itself even if you are using a server side protocol.  I really, really, really advise against that for exactly the reasons on display in this topic.

It is unclear how the old folders were stored.  If the old machine is still available the PST file can be imported over to another machine.  But even if you do this, if these folders were stored under the Local Folders section, or otherwise stored locally, you are going to want to transfer them to reside as IMAP/Exchange folders under one of your accounts so this would not happen again.

Local storage and the POP3 client side email protocol are, very simply, best not used.  They're holdovers from an earlier age and do not serve modern usage and access patterns, which means being able to get to your e-mail, all of it, from multiple devices and having them all stay in sync, at all well.

Same applies to Outlook.com email accounts or Exchange accounts, all data is stored on the server and as soon as you set up the account on a new device everything syncs, it's beautiful and absolutely the way to go nowadays. I have been using Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail) for my personal email for over 10 years and for work I use Microsoft 365, formerly Office 365 and I have not lost any emails or contacts and did not have to worry about backing up Outlook data files for many years. If I get a new computer or iPhone I just set up my account by putting in my email address and password and it's all there a short while later, I don't have to worry about incoming and outgoing ports, I don't have to worry on which device I read, send or delete my email, it's always in sync and the same everywhere.

If your email account was  an imap account then your folders should be automatically re-created when you setup that email account in Outlook.

This imap is normally the default for modern email accounts. However if the email account is not set up then the folders will not appear.

 

If your  previous account was set up under the older pop3 system you will need to find the relevant PST file on your old computer  and manually import this using the import feature under Outlook – I believe under the file menu.

Finding the PST  file on your old computer may be a bit of a struggle but you can search under windows for Outlook.pst where hopefully you will find a folder with the various PST files stored.

Hi All,

 

I just got a new laptop and the professionals I paid to move everything over from old laptop to the new did not do well even though we’ve used service before.

Slowly sorting out issues. I have windows 10 and latest JAWS 2020 and latest Leasey from Harjen consulting.

 

I have Microsoft office 365. I thought all of my Outlook was backed up! The folders were in Outlook.

 

On my old computer are over 500 folders, mostly work related that are associated with a separate inbox. I was assured these would be moved over but they are not.

Can I email myself folders?

How would I set up the structure or do I have to go into each folder and send myself individual files.

 

Is there a good place to put these. The over five hundred folders were attached to  an email that I no longer access but had started folder creation there originally so just kept adding to it.

I have just done control e when inbox was in focus and they all alphabetized under that.

 

Feel free to PM me at sharon.ballantyne@... if you have guidance.

 

With thanks.

Respectfully yours

Sharon Ballantyne

Subject: [External] Accessing jaws menu in laptop layout

Hi all,

I have occasion to use the laptop layout with Jaws 2020.

However, I'm unable to access the jaws menu as I prefer to run it from the
system tray.

When I use the keyboard shortcut of jaws key (capslock in this case)+j,
the only thing that's announced is blank.

Interestingly, when I plug in a keyboard that has an insert key and use
that instead of capslock it works perfectly.

Does anyone know if the key to access the jaws menu from system tray is
different in laptop layout?

Jaws help doesn't seem to have the answer.

Thanks,


Daniel
