Making Font and size all the same in a document.

Tim Ford
 

Hi Marilyn,

I had a couple of minor errors in my first note, so here is the corrected one, just delete the first one.

Here are the steps:

1. Press control and the letter a to select all text.

2. Press control and the letter d, which will bring up what you want, the
font menu.

3. In the first box, arrow up or down to select the font. This box has
first letter navigation, so if you want, for example, Times New Roman, press
t and you will be at the beginning of the list that starts with t.

4. Tab once to the font type, and use the arrow keys to select what you
want, probably "regular", which is the first choice when you pres the down arrow.

5. Press tab again, and you are in the size box. Use the up and down arrow
keys to select the size.

6. Press enter, since the OK button is the default. You will be back in
your document, and all should be well.

Sincerely,
Tim Ford

well, I can install an earlier version but it eventually would want to
upgrade to the current version.

you say you can't get to that screen. are you referring to the
about:config page? you should be able to get it by pressing control+l
and typing in about:config (note there are no spaces) and then pressing
enter. then press the I accept the risk! Button (confirming that you
accept the risk of damage due to changes) and you'll be in a search
field where you can type the first few letters of the option you want,
to narrow down your choices, or press tab to a list of all options to
mess with. after making your changes, just press control+w.

Old versions of visual studio (at least of a high enough edition) can,

You could also find an old edition of the HTML help compiler

I also have hardware acceleration turned off along with the following:

gfx.direct2d.disabled, with a value changed to true.

layers.acceleration.disabled, with a value changed to true.

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled, with a value changed to false.

do you have made any additional changes from their default states? maybe
I should return my changes to their defaults except for the hardware
accelleration and the layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled?

Interesting, I too have FF 49 but the jaws cursor works very well for

tools->options advanced->general page.

(For instance on the gmail page I am currently viewing the jaws cursor
sees all of the page text that I am aware of being on the current

used to be I could not see the "post" button for making a comment but

Re: Problems With Searching For A Lost File On The Computer

 

Gudrun,

           If you know you have a 64-bit machine then download the 64-bit version.  If you downloaded the 32-bit version it would run just fine, too.  You can run 32-bit programs on 64-bit systems but not vice-versa.  In fact, many of the programs all of us are still using come only in 32-bit versions because there was nothing necessary to their functioning that required the extended memory addressing that 64-bit allows (among other things).

           Generally 64- bit versions of things contain 'x64' as part of their names while 32-bit versions have 'x86' as part of their names.  This is an anachronism from the era when the Intel 8086 processor hit the market and 32-bit was a big deal.

Hi, Gudrun. Try the file with 64 in the name. If you don't have a 64-bit system, it won't install. Then you will know to download the other file.

iKeith,

I realize the following doesn't exactly answer your exact query, but as a long time Windows user who generally wants to find lost files based on a partial or full file name, I can't recommend the Everything Search Engine from Voidtools <https://voidtools.com/> . It uses a menu driven interface and a single edit box to enter your search string, which can also employ regular expressions if you're familiar with those, and seems to be fully accessible to the extent that I've played with it with a screen reader.

I virtually never use Windows Search/Cortana at all since Everything does just precisely what I want and does it very, very quickly with minimal resource usage. You can define the drive or drives you'd like for Everything to keep constantly indexed.

Re: Windows 10 mail;

 

David,

          I can't speak to whether your method of adding an account will work or not, but I suspect it will.  I always add accounts for the Mail App using the "Manage Accounts" feature within the App itself.  I can say that accounts that are added via the "Manage Accounts" feature in the Mail App do end up showing up in the list of accounts in the system Accounts, Email & App accounts pane.   Typically the first one that appears under the "Email, Calendar, and Contacts" section is the account you have associated with your Microsoft account, which shows up with an Outlook icon even if the e-mail account itself is not an Outlook.com account.  In my case it's a Gmail account.  Directly beneath that are accounts I added in the Windows 10 Mail App, which is why I presume your technique will work, too.

          You do choose Google for any Google related service, in this case Gmail and it will also set up synchronization of contacts into the People App and the Google Calendar for that account into the Calendar App.

           It is not possible to answer your question regarding receipt of all previous mail without knowing whether the client was using POP or IMAP access in whatever e-mail client they were using previously.  If they were using IMAP they absolutely will get anything and everything they had access to before since all messages, contacts, etc., are stored on the e-mail server until or unless they are deleted.  If they were using POP most POP configurations delete messages from the server either immediately upon download to the local e-mail client or some fixed number of hours or days after the initial download.  When that occurs these messages are no longer available for future download into another e-mail client if one switches the e-mail client you're using.

           These days I tell anyone setting up e-mail for anyone to use IMAP as the access method.  The only real drawback, and it's very seldom an issue, is with access to very old messages if you are currently offline when you want to look at them, as message bodies are not kept perpetually locally when IMAP is used (at least not by default).  Many clients allow you to set IMAP access such that all messages up to a certain age will have their message bodies retained by the client, but it's not often used since the vast majority of us have an internet connection virtually all the time.   IMAP also has the distinct advantage of automatic synchronization of e-mail across multiple devices accessing the same account, where POP does not.  It's a grand PITA to have two e-mail clients running POP, one on a desktop that's always on and another on a mobile device, where the desktop client may download e-mail and then those messages are removed from the server before the mobile client ever has a chance to see them.  I once had a client with 4 devices who someone had configured POP on all of them, and it was a three-ring circus trying to figure out why certain e-mail was showing up on one device and not the others (or it was for her - I recognized the issue immediately because I've "been there, seen that" far too many times).

Windows 10 mail;

One of my client's would like to setup the windows 10 mail client.
I would like to just verify some information,
1, to setup the email account,
I need to go to,
Settings, windows-key+i
2, tab to the list of items, and right arrow and enter on,
Accounts,
3, then I need to again tab once,
Now, arrow down and enter on,
Email&app accounts,
4, again I need to tab and here I see, add email account,
Here I would press enter.
Now the type of account is Gmail,
So, I assume I choose google?
Now, when I go through the setup,
Will my client just receive all new messages from the Gmail account?
Or, can my client receive all previous mail.
Just want to make sure I will do this right.
In advance, thank you.
