Do you still have Office Max down there? We don't. It morfed into something else, then it just seemed to disappear. Pam.

Yeah, OfficeMax would, and I would get them to do mine next
time. It would have cost me $80 back in 2015.

I don't know what you can arrange, but it may be that the
store from which you purchase the computer from would have
someone do it but I don't know just what you are asked and
if you need to provide information you wouldn't want others
to know. I also don't know if the store would charge to do
it.Narrator shouldn't automatically turn off.

Gene,
Several people told me to use Narrator, and that is what I
did, but everytime I turned Narrator on, it would completely
turn right back off, and so that is why I say Narrator was
no help to me at all. I don't have any idea why Narrator
was like that though, as I have never worked with Narrator
before. I will try to use Narrator again when I pick up my
Laptop this coming Tuesday, and see how it works this time.
If it doesn't work this time, I have no speech, so there
for, I won't be able to set up the Laptop.

I haven't gone through the setup procedure when you first
run a new
computer. I doubt you can install anything until you go
through it. We
don't know why you had the problems you had before, but
Narrator may not
have been the problem. Whenever I see this question
discussed, those who
describe what they do say they use Narrator.

Gene,
Ok this makes sense. I do know the information from my
Router to enter it,
matter of fact, now that I finally thought about it, I can
probably connect
the Laptop to my Wi-FI just like I do when I connected my
iPhone using my
network password and security number. My Modem and Router
is so old, and
out dated as I've had it since 2009, and I probably need a
new one soon. Do
you know if I can install Jaws as I turn on the Laptop, or
do I need to use
Narrator? Last week when I tried to work with the other
Laptop, Narrator
wasn't any help at all.

No, but when you connect your laptop to the WIFI, you will
have to enter
information on your laptop to allow it to connect. The
laptop will see your
router but when you tell it to connect, it will ask for your
security key.
I'm not sure if it asks for anything else.

HI Gene,
System Defender sounds like it will be enough for me. Now
though, speaking
about Wi-Fi, my current PC is connected to my modem and
Router, but I do
know or so I've been told by ATT back in 2009, I do have
WI-FI connections
with this Modem and Router, but I'm now wondering will I
need to do
something to my Modem or Router in order to connect my new
Laptop to
Wi-Fi?

As far as I know, you won't have to set up security if all
you want to do is
use the program Mivcrosoft provides with Windows. As I
recall, its system
Defender.

You may want to use something in addition such as Malware
Bytes but System
Defender is a highly rated program and you will be unlikely
to need
something else unless you want to use something like
Malwaare Bytes.

You will have to go through some sort of procedure as has
been discussed
here when you first use the computer. Aside from what you
are discussing,
the only thing I can think of is to set up your computer to
work with your
WIFI, unless at home, you are going to connect your computer
to your router
by cable. I don't know enough about how you set up your
computer to work
with your WIFI to discuss it. When I had my modem set up
here, the
serviceman set up my laptop to work with it. I think AT&T
does that for
customers when a router is connected by them.

Hi All,
I'm just curious if Windows Ten is already installed on my
Laptop, what
might be left that I would need to do? I know I will need to
set up an email
program, install my screen reader, set up security though.
Just so I know
what to expect when I bring home my Laptop. I know how to
plug it in
though! LOL!
Janet

Peace Be With You.
