Are there any other better working browsers?

 

Isn't there a way to get chrome to work better on facebook?

Madison:

If you have a reasonably current version of Microsoft Word, press control
F12 to get into the PDF conversion option.

Then, locate the PDF file you want to convert into a Word document.

Once you've highlighted that document, hit enter, and you will get a message that Microsoft Word will convert the file for you.

Hit ok on this, and the conversion should be done.

You will then be placed into the converted file, which should be an editable Microsoft Word document. Of course, once you have the converted document, you can save where needed.

I've had fairly good results with this, although it does depend on how the original file was prepared before it was converted to a PDF document.

I hope this helps.

Subject: filling out PDFs

Hi all,
I think someone posted the instructions for this a few weeks ago, but I deleted the email by accident. I don't mind reading PDFs in Adobe, but filling them out doesn't work. Can someone please tell me how to change this one PDF into a Word document so that I can fill it in? I tried selecting it and then copying and pasting it into a Word document but that didn't work. I know I could put it into Notepad, but I don't know how to use Notepad. I want to be able to fill it in myself, I don't want to print it out and have someone else fill it in for me.
Thanks

Hi, Shirley. There are two settings that you can change to make sure that, in the future, even if Tablet Mode does get turned on, your desktop and task bar won't be hidden.

 

1. Open Settings with Windows key plus I.

2. TAB to the list of Settings categories, and press ENTER on System.

3. Arrow down to Tablet Mode, and press ENTER.

4. Under Tablet Mode, make sure, Hide app icons on the taskbar in tablet mode Button is Off

5. Also under Tablet Mode, make sure, Automatically hide the taskbar in tablet mode Button is Off.

Hi Mike,

 

Yes, I tried rebooting. I also pressed windows key plus D and also the alt M and even Control M. Nothing happens. I ask Curtana for mail is the way I find it now. I no longer have the normal list. I hope I didn’t get a virus or something.

 

No, I didn’t finish the letter before the Desktop vanished, but I asked Curtana for mail and finished (rewrote) the important email letter. What the letter had to do with everything is that I was rushing to get it sent out before today—long story. In my hurry, I may have pressed the wrong keys somewhere—or been keying too fast--that darn letter took up a lot of my time and brain power. By the time I sent out my plea for help last night, I was exhausted. (smile).

My next plan is to call Microsoft Disability number. Thought I’d pick your brains on the list first.

I had the unfortunate experience of destroying an Excel file. I thought that I had a back up or a version to restore.

 

When I looked, I found that there were no previous versions.

 

How can  I set up Windows 10 so that it will keep previous versions of documents?

 

If there  is a page that  you can point me to, I would appreciate it.

I think the best way to do it is like this: Open the PDF file. Then after it is open select all the material and then copy it to the Clipboard. Then close Adobe, open Microsoft Word, paste the form into the Microsoft Word document window, then see if you might be able to fill it out in the form of a Word document. I'm like you--I'd rather fill out the form myself, but there are times it just can't be done.

You should be aware that settings exist within Zoom to limit the ability to chat during meetings. This makes sense as it is hard to assimilate what is being discussed in a meeting while chatting with another. I know I have settings under my Zoom account where chat is disabled when in a meeting.

Yes, press alt-H to get into the chat panel. Tab over until you hear the list of participants. Arrow down the list until you hear the name of the participant you want to chat with and press enter.

That should put you in the text box for chatting with that person, but you may need to tab around to find it.

Hi all.  You know, the past 2 weeks have stimulated my emagination, at least where Microsoft Windows is concerned.  The email subjects like "Windows is gone", and the latest one, "Where is my desktop?", well, they have sort a Sci-Fi, Mystery detective, Mystical effect.  A nice divergance from the convention and norm, don't you think?  Do they not stimulate you to tune in to the next installment to see what happens next, or moan and groan when you miss it?  At least it is a release from the usual.  Cheers Microsoft Windows that provides bugs and program flaws that cause misery and fun in equal measure, and cheers to the emailers who provide such unusual and original, imaginative  email subjects.

Did you try pressing, Windows key + D, or M, to take you to the desktop?

 

Did you press, Insert + T, to read the title of the screen you're on?

 

Was your computer doing some sort of update and wanting to reboot?

 

Did you get your letter composed and saved?

 

What relation does composing a letter and not having a desktop have to do with each other?  What I mean is, as above, did you finish the letter, save it, then you couldn't find your desktop?

 

I'm not trying to be an A'Hole, but you're leaving out a lot of things that could of, might of or maybe did!

Subject: What happened to my desktop?

 

My computer started acting goofy this evening, and I was in a hurry to compose an important letter so may have rushed things along too quickly. Suddenly, my desktop disappeared. I can’t find it. Any ideas? It’s not in the recycle bin. (LOL).

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Shirley,

When you hit Insert T while you think you should be on the desktop, Do you hear JAWS say Desktop 1? With some frequency, I hit something that switches me to Desktop 2 where my icons are different.  I use Control Windows key and left arrow to get back to the main Desktop.

Hi Richard, I will probably end up with a printer that I can describe what I want and get me samples for sighted opinion.  Thank you.. Hope your Well.  Andy and Shubert.

I do not think Jaws will be able to give you the information you would need.

I would suggest seeing if someone with Aira could help you with that, or you would need to find a graphics designer who could create the template for you.

Hello, I would like to ask for direction on setting up a letterhead.  I just
don't want to have it plain but, a bit different.  For example:
The Friends of the Salem Council on Aging.... The word Friends would be a
different Phont and a 45 Degree slant from the F of Friends being normal
position and the S of Friends being the highest ..  Can anyone explain how
to do this or direct me to a tutorial.?  Thanks so much.  Andy and Shubert
p.s. I am using Jaws 20 with MS Word 365 latest version.
