Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

Carolyn Arnold
 

If I press Alt plus Spacebar, it says Context menu. I used
to be able to maximize a window with those key strokes by
pressing Alt+Spacebar+X.

Now this is interesting because it does nothing for my
screen at all. F11 changes it in the browser, but it doesn't
change it in the way it should. If I press alt space bar and
check to see if it's maximized, it tells me that it is, but
it isn't really.

This is a laptop, so I'm wondering if there isn't a setting
in displays that is getting in the way and needs to be
changed.

Re: Audio Book Apps

Hi, Monte, I only get one free book with my $15 payment to Audible. But if I want, I can buy others at a discounted price. I don't do this often, though. Instead, if I see a book I want, I add it to my wish list and buy it when my credit comes out, usually about the 20th of the month. I hope that answers your question.

Re: How do I reset my iPhone without needing to go through settings?

Abbie Taylor
 

You can reset the phone by pressing the Volume Up button, then the Volume Down button, then pressing and holding the Power button for about thirty seconds. The phone should automatically restart. I hope that helps.

Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

You are using incorrect terminology.  There is no such thing as maximizing the screen.  There is full screen, f11, and maximizing a program, the maximize command.  I never said which one should be tried.  I didn’t know what is wanted.  I have no objection to both being tried.
 
I talked about f11 being a possible duplicate of the maximize command in programs that don’t have full screen because the page you sent specifically stated that f11 is maximize.  I don’t know if the page is correct.  F11 has never been a maximize command.  It has been, for as long as I’ve known the command, a toggle for full screen or not full screen, I don’t know what you call it, in programs that support full screen.  Therefore, I speculated about whether the command had been changed in Windows 10.  I said that if it has, it is very unlikely that Windows would stop the command working as browsers intend, that is, as a full screen toggle. 
 
At this point, I am very suspicious that the page is in error.  there is no need for yet another maximize command.  there are already three keyboard ways to maximize a program that I know. 
 
Perhaps others will comment.

When you press, F11, in the browser it'll maximize the screen, but you can't access the menues when you do this.  I'm not debating whether keystrokes work only in browsers or not in browsers, I'm only saying pressing, Windows key + up arrow, is the Windows keystroke for maximizing windows and it doesn't hurt anything to try something if nothing else is working.  The same for the system context menu, Alt + spacebar, keystroke.
 
Exactly what problem are you having?  Your problem may not have anything to do with a maximized screen.

Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

Have you tried other programs to see if maximize works as it should?  As I understand it, when a program is maximized, the program window takes the entire screen.  When you try to maximize the browser, what happens and what do you want to happen?

Clarifying my issue with Voiceover on my iPhone XR with IOS 14.6

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi again,


I'll clarify the problem I'm having with Voiceover on my iPhone XR with IOS 14.6.  I can hear text messages when the notification pops up, and can at least read the options in notifications and control centers, and I can navigate between apps, but when I open one, including settings, the only thing Voiceover would say is the status bar item and clicks as I swipe or drag around the screen. I was able to power off by holding the volume and side buttons. But when I connected it to charge and it came back on, even after waiting a long time on another attempt, it seems the Voiceover behavior has not changed.  I have Voice Control on, but it doesn't seem to help.  What is the next step?


Thanks,

Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

I don’t know how f11 may work outside of browsers in Windows 10.  If that is another way to maximize a window outside of a browser, it still appears to be a full screen toggle in a browser.  I doubt the browser would let Windows intercept and override its own internal command.

Yes, I can see I have sentences to r read but now what?

That's  good.  Since the developers haven't changed the data-base the program uses, it raises the question whether they are developing the program in any way any longer.  It doesn't sound like it.

The last time I ripped  using Windows Media Player, perhaps three years ago, it still named tracks.  I don’t know which data-base it uses and I don’t know if you can tell CDEX to use a different data-base.
 
In the old days, CDEX gave you a choice of two data-bases.  As I recall, there was something in options about it but I didn’t use the program much and it was a long time ago so it may have been somewhere else, though I don’t think so.
 
If you want to continue to use CDEX, I can tell you how to find a track list for most albums so you can manually name the tracks.  While you wouldn’t want to go through the work if you rip a lot of CDs, if you just rip one now and then, it might be worth doing for the convenience of continuing to use the same program.

Since  CDex remote CDDB isn’t working anymore, does anyone have a solution for how to get what the disk is from a different database?

Any idea who Winamp uses?

I’ve not used Winamp to rip CDs, but I’m ok with that provided I can rip to *.flac.

Re: Maximizing in Google Chrome

No reason I am aware of.  But it is important to know in case you can’t get menus to come up.  Occasionally, I see such a question on lists because a user unintentionally caused a browser to be in full screen. 
Also, I just thought of this now.  If you are in full screen, closing and reopening the browser gets rid of it, but if you don’t know either of those things and you can’t bring menus up, you may think something is wrong with the program.
 
I don’t know if other programs have a full screen setting.

Gene,

 

Thanks, never knew this. Why would one want full screen or not using a screen reader?

That causes a web page to take up the full screen and is not the same as maximizing the program.  It means that the page takes up all the room normally used by the rest of the program, such as tool bars, the menu bar, whatever is on the screen in addition to the web page usually.  You enter full screen in the standard way for browsers, with f11.  You leave full screen mode with f11 as well.

 

You will find full screen also in the menu, but that is the short cut command.

 

I suspect that you are asking about maximizing the entire program but since I don’t know that and for others who may be interested, I presented the above information.

 

Also, it is worth knowing that if you can’t get to the menus in a browser, you are likely in full screen mode.  As I said, the web page covers the entire area of the program window and the menu or menus can’t be made to come up.  In that case, press f11 to return to the standard method of display.  You can then open the menus.  As I said, f11 is the standard shortcut toggle in Windows browsers to turn full screen on or off, at least the browsers I’ve seen, Internet Explorer, firefox, and Chrome-based browsers.

Press, Windows key + up arrow, or, hold down the, Alt key, and tap the spacebar to open the system menu, and press the letter, X.  You can also press, Alt + spacebar, and down arrow to, Maximize, and press enter, but if it says, Unavailable, this means the screen is already maximized.

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Hi,

 

I'm not finding a way to maximize web pages in Google Chrome. Is there a short cut for this or where do I find it in the menus?

 

Thanks.

 

Vicki
