Re: Windows 10 Question

Van Lant, Robin
 

I just switched to Office 2016 and feel your pain. The key thing to change is to go into Word and Excel and tell it not to load the start screen. In Word, this is found under File, Options, General. That will make the feel when you first open Word feel like Office 2010.

Also, when you go to "save" documents, use F12 instead of Control S. This will take you to a familiar save as dialog box rather than the Backstage view" that is very cluttered.

The other area I find confusing is trying to go to recently opened documents, which I do a lot at work. Rather than the menu based format from Office 2010, you have to tab to recent documents, then hit space to activate it then tab once more into a vertical list of recent documents.

Those are the big differences for me so far.

computer, and you will, you will be lost.

I also strongly suggest that most screen reader users use desktop
shortcuts as their primary interface for the programs they use most
and use the built-in Cortana search (even if her personal digital
assistant feature is
disabled) by hitting Windows Key and typing in the name of the program
or keywords for the setting or partial name of a document, etc.,
you're looking for and it's likely to show up at or near the top of
the search results list.

There are some slight changes regarding how desktop shortcuts are
created for built-in universal apps.  It's not difficult.  See:

* Adding Desktop Shortcuts Under Windows 10 (

File Explorer is virtually identical to Windows Explorer of Windows 7
unless you've customized it.  If you wish to customize it under Windows 10, see:

Re: Migrating to Firefox from Internet Explorer

Good Morning Bill,

 

Thank you. So this only gives a sound for downloads? There is no way to add sounds for other navigation such as entering on links etc? Or does Firefox have that built in now?

Hi, Joe. Navigational Sounds is no longer available through the AddOn Manager of Firefox. This is because Navigational Sounds no longer works with Firefox Quantum (version 60 and up).

 

Instead,

1.  open Firefox.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus A to open the AddOn Manager.

3. Tab to the list of available categories within the AddOn Manager.

4. The category you want to open is Extensions. When you find it, press ENTER.

This is a deceptive description, because, as installed, it just plays a simple ding sound, once the AddOn is installed.

Re: Accessing drop down menus

Steve Matzura
 

That's a hard one, as different Websites use different methods. If the drop-down menu shows up as a button, JAWS sometimes says collapsed," or "menu." Tap your space bar and this menu will open. You can then use down-arrow to browse its choices. You may also get the JAWS sound that indicates you've gone into forms mode. This is normal, but it doesn't happen all the time. It all depends on exactly what kind of control that menu drop-down is.

Hi Brian,
just to point out that when you apply a view to folders of this type, there is no restriction that the view is only applied to subfolders. It is applied to all folders of that type anywhere is the folder hierarchy.

Ribbons.  I believe they were introduced all the way back at Office 2007.  The ribbon interface was a big part of Windows 7 itself, too.

I just finished installing Office 2016 on three machines this evening, all of which already had Office 2010, so I can use either at this point.  But given that I doubt support will go on much longer for Office 2010 I wanted to get the last fully installable version, as opposed to the Office 365 subscription service, on while one can get keys for it for a song on eBay out of the EU and the Far East.

Re: Windows 10 Question

 

Just like Windows 7 and Windows 10 Office 2010 and Office 2016 have differences and there are no two ways about it, you just have to learn to deal with how you do things in Office 2016. I can't even remember, but did Office 2010 still have menus or did it already have ribbons?
