Thunderbird issue

clarence carter
 

My wife had a problem with thunderbird not importing mail, nor was it exporting mail. In the process of trying to resolve the issue, I lost the default settings. I had the AOL folks recover the program and sync it up with the E-mail account. However  her local folders did not make the transition.

 

I understand that they are still there, unfortunately, the way her machine is set up, I cannot get to them.

 

Where should I be looking, and how can I execute a run command? I rarely have to do it, and I forgot the command to execute one.

 

Any help and quick steps would be appreciated.

A One Drive account gives you an additional 1 TB of drive space.  It also allows you to access your files from anywhere and across multiple machines/devices.  You can either use your phone or tablet to access your files, or if you have multiple PCs (this can be Windows or Mac) you can access your files.
Depending on how you configure your One Drive your files can exist on both your local hard drive or just in the cloud.
Personally I have files that I always want access to regardless if I am connected to the internet to always reside on my local hard drive as well as in the cloud.  One Drive also helps ensure that if your PC dies or your hard drive crashes that your files are still intact.  I tend to spin up Virtual Machines on a regular basis and with a simple sign in to One Drive I have all of my files at my fingertips.
Regards,

Jim Weiss

Hi, Shirley. Only your Microsoft Word files should go to OneDrive, and only if you're signed into OneDrive. As far as Ease of Access goes, that should be closed, if you go to Control Panel> Ease of Access and untoggle the button that says Always scan this Section.

Re: Which version of jars with windows 10?

Jim Weiss
 

By default you will purchase 2021 and assuming that you are buying the Home Annual Subscription 2021 would be the software that would be initially installed. You will have access to download previous versions of the software if necessary.
If you mean do you want to purchase the Home Annual Subscription, student edition or professional edition that depends on how you are using the software. All three versions use the same installer, if you are using it for work then you need to purchase Professional. If you just use it at home then the annual subscription is for you and of course if you are a student then the student edition is the correct option. The software is the same across editions, meaning there is only one version available for download.
There is also the option of a SMA for home use which provides a perpetual license, but if you don’t keep your SMA up to date it can get costly as time goes by.
The home annual subscription is on sale until the end of the month.

Bill, guess what? I went to control panel and clicked on ease of access, and the “Always scan this Section” was unchecked. Maybe my computer was showing me something else, and I was so frustrated that I didn’t realize it. So, anyway, I checked it and then unchecked it again to be sure.

Hi again, Shirley. One interesting thing about the newest JAWS installers is that, when you look at the installer's name, they contain the word "any". This means that the installer can install either a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of JAWS, depending upon which version your computer needs. I will put the name of the latest JAWS installer below so you can navigate character by character, and see the word any in the name of the file. It gives no indication of a 32-bit or 64-bit version.

I cannot possibly second this recommendation more strongly, particularly if you're someone "old school" such as myself who virtually always searches for something based on its file name, or part of it, rather than the content in the file.

Windows Search itself is great when you occasionally can't remember what you called something but can remember some distinctive little snippet of content that would let you zero in on it.  But I use Everything Search on an almost daily basis because, even when the file is not lost, it's just quicker and more efficient for searches based on file name than Windows Search is.  And it's accessible.

Hi Bill,
 
Well like I said, I'm new to Firefox, I just installed it yesterday to see how it works and I haven't had much of a chance to play around and learn the menues and how to navigate them.
 
I have used Waterfox Classic quite a bit and I found it easier to turn the virtual cursor off when I needed to make an options change and I assumed Firefox would be the same since Waterfox is a stripped down version of Firefox.

Hi Judy,

 

If you're new to Firefox, like myself, you need to go into the Settings Center and assign sounds for when edit fields are opened / closed.  Also, I suggested the turning off of the virtual cursor keystroke because it's necessary to turn the virtual cursor off when navigating the menues to make option changes.  You might want to run Firefox with forms mode set to Automatic to get the hang of it and this way you may not miss the edit fields you're looking for.

Hi Ann & Judy,

 

Insert + spacebar, then Z, is not the keystroke you want.  This keystroke is a toggle for running Jaws with its default settings and switching back to your personal settings.

 

The keystroke you want is, Insert + Z, this toggles the virtual cursor off / on.

Re: link won't work

Yeah, I don’t bother with that either. I only turn the virtual cursor off when using certain websites, like youtube for instance.

Hi, Mike. I don't have Virtual Cursor turned off in Firefox, and I can make options changes just fine.

Hi Judy,

 

If you're new to Firefox, like myself, you need to go into the Settings Center and assign sounds for when edit fields are opened / closed.  Also, I suggested the turning off of the virtual cursor keystroke because it's necessary to turn the virtual cursor off when navigating the menues to make option changes.  You might want to run Firefox with forms mode set to Automatic to get the hang of it and this way you may not miss the edit fields you're looking for.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi Ann & Judy,

 

Insert + spacebar, then Z, is not the keystroke you want.  This keystroke is a toggle for running Jaws with its default settings and switching back to your personal settings.

 

The keystroke you want is, Insert + Z, this toggles the virtual cursor off / on.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Try insert+spacebar, then z.  If JAWS has done something weird, this
keystroke will allow you to run it without the weirdness.

good luck.

Re: How to locate a missing file

JM Casey
 

I can’t positively remember, but I was under the impression there weren’t individual jAWS licenses for 64 or 32 bit versions --- you should be able to just download the 64 bit version from the Freedom Scientific site, no?

 

Also, just because things like ease of access and onedrive are there, doesn’t mean that you have to use them. There’s plenty of stuff in plenty of programmes that I use that I have little need for – I just don’t’ use them and they don’t cause me any inconvenience.

Thanks. I do have 64 bit. I don’t know why I purchased a 32 bit upgrade for JAWS, but that was last year, and it has worked fine.  

 

I’m just amazed that suddenly Microsoft is adding things like “One Drive” and “Ease of access” that I know nothing about—nor do I really want them, but here they are. 😊

Re: How to locate a missing file

Hi again, Shirley. One interesting thing about the newest JAWS installers is that, when you look at the installer's name, they contain the word "any". This means that the installer can install either a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of JAWS, depending upon which version your computer needs. I will put the name of the latest JAWS installer below so you can navigate character by character, and see the word any in the name of the file. It gives no indication of a 32-bit or 64-bit version.

Bill, because the sales person at Vespero told me that’s what I had to have. Maybe she was mistaken?

I wouldn’t know. My major was literature and grammar.

Is there a way to double check?

Hi, Shirley. I also have the Home version of JAWS, and my version is 64-bit. I don't know why you have the 32-bit version of JAWS.

Bryan, I went to the link you gave, but I have a question: I have a 64 bit computer but JAWS is actually 32 bit because I purchased the Home version. Does this make any difference for Ask Everything? I realize my question may seem like asking if a dog has four paws, but I really don’t know.

I cannot possibly second this recommendation more strongly, particularly if you're someone "old school" such as myself who virtually always searches for something based on its file name, or part of it, rather than the content in the file.

Windows Search itself is great when you occasionally can't remember what you called something but can remember some distinctive little snippet of content that would let you zero in on it.  But I use Everything Search on an almost daily basis because, even when the file is not lost, it's just quicker and more efficient for searches based on file name than Windows Search is.  And it's accessible.
