Re: Windows 11 Question Please.

When I could still se, 8 years ago,  the application or context key on many keyboards,  did not have any words or letters on it.

Instead, there was usually an image of a page with a f few lines indicating text, maybe..

John,

Ok, I can understand what you are saying about they might not even know about the application key, but isn’t there something on the application key so they would know what it is?

I can picture someone never hearing of that.
Most sited people I know of do not use the keyboard like you and I.
They probably wouldn't even know that the applications key is the same as
clicking the right mouse click button on their mouse..

If no Application Key, press Shift+F10, that is, if you have the standard
function above the numbers on your keyboard.

I can't imagine someone never even hearing of an Application Key.

Gene,

 and that isn't even including the taxes. 

I would love not to have the tower.  As far as the miniaturization, I'm fine
with that, as all that comes with the computer is the monitor and the
keyboard.  Best Buy said if need be, they work on these computers the same
way as if the computer had a tower.  Although, the keyboard didn't have a
application key, as it had a FN key on each side of
the space bar.   I asked them what happened to the
application key, they said they never heard of an application key on any
keyboard.  I know there is another way to use the application if the
keyboard didn't have

one, but I don't remember what that is.  They didn't have any Windows 11 for
$699 , other than some Windows ten with very little ram,  I just can't see
myself paying that much!
LOL!  I do have my keyboard from Windows 7, but I still can't stand that
Laptop,

How important is no tower?  I haven't seen the kind of computer you are
discussing, but I've seen brief discussions of them off and on.  Based on
what you say, you may be paying a lot for miniaturization. 

 

Also, I hope others discuss repair, if it becomes necessary.
Is it practical to repair such machines? 

 

I would think that, on sale, you could get a machine for six hundred
dollars, perhaps less that would meet your needs.
Do you actually want two computers or do you want a desktop since you no
longer have one?  If you get an external keyboard, you can operate your
laptop as though it were a desktop.

Subject: [TechTalk] Windows 11 Question Please.

 

HI Everyone,

Well, since my Windows 7 stopped working. I am wanting to buy a new desktop
computer, as I hate laptops.  I was at Best Buy yesterday, so I thought as
long as I am here, I decided to look at the new Windows 11.  I saw one I
really liked, but I didn't like the price in which was 13 hundred dollars!
LOL!  The main thing about this computer I really did like is it had no
tower, the hard drive, ram, fan, just everything that is in the tower, is in
the monitor,  and the monitor isn't all that big.  It also didn't have a cd
drive tray, but I'm not for sure I would need that anyway.  So, my question
is has anyone seen these new computers like this, and if so, can you please
share your thoughts?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Janet
