So, if I purchase a new pc or laptop,  I would expect it to have  ddr4 ram?

Hi List,

 

Curious George here, again.

What flavour of ram are the new pcs and laptops using?

Is ddr4 still the flavour of the day or has ddr5 or x or xx now in use?

 

Cheers,

Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

Also, what happens if you do two things in this order:
First maximize the program so the actual program window takes the entire screen.  Now, turn on full screen, f11.  The web page should then take up the entire program window and since the program window is now taking up the entire screen, it should be large.
 
It may be that you may need sighted help to adjust the size of the web page so that when you open a web page, it fills the window without you having to do these things.  But for now, if this works, if you do this at the beginning of a session, you shouldn’t have to do it again until you close and reopen the browser.
 
Also, and I’m just asking this so as to leave no possibility I can think of unconsidered, what screen-reader are you using?  I don’t recall if you said.  Are you using any attachments either in Chrome or in the screen-reader that might be causing a problem?  You are evidently working visually to an extent.  Are you using a magnification program?

If you maximize the program, is the screen still very small?  And by that do you mean the entire program or just the display of the web page with the program taking up much more room?  At this point, I’m not sure what is causing the problem.

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.

Maximizing the program and or the screen doesn't change anything. I even set it to open the program maximized rather than normal and nothing changed. It's not a big deal to me, but my husband would like the appearance to be what it was awhile back. I'm not certain what changed.

Hi,

Using google chrome, not sure about other browsers, I think it worked with IE but alt home would take me back to the home page, in this case startpage.com.

It’s not doing that for me in chrome, what setting needs to be configured for that?

Thank you.


Re: returning home

Mornin Bro,
 
See if these steps by Chris will getter done.
From: chris judge
Hi. It’s actually quite easy, and you can add more than one home page. Here’s how I do it.
 
 
1. Launch google chrome.
 
2. Press altF.
 
3. Arrow up to settings and press enter. You will be placed in a search field and forms mode will turn on.
 
4. press escape to exit forms mode
 
5. Press the h key until you get to the heading, on start-up.
 
6. Arrow down to the third radio button that says, open a specific page or set of pages.
 
7. press the space bar to select that radio button.
 
8. Tab once. You will hear, add a new page. Press enter.
 
9. Type the complete URL, for instance.
http://www.google.com
 
10. Tab to the add button and press space bar. You can add other pages as well. Then, when you launch google chrome you can control tab between the various
home pages.

Re: branchless (online only) banks?

I've used Ally Bank for ten years and they are very accessible. In years
past, when I had an accessibility issue they even gave me the direct line
phone number for Tier 2 (one step above regular tech support. I haven't
had to contact them lately though because I haven't had any accessibility
issues. I use their iPhone app mostly and don't really have any reason to
use the website on a computer. They are also affiliated with Zell (not all
banks are) so if I need to send/receive money to someone that is an option
besides Pay Pal.

I forgot to mention they do not charge fees for ATM withdrawals (in the
past they would reimburse any fees you were charged up to I believe 5
withdrawal fees per month) and the checking and savings are both interest
bearing accounts.

BBVA's app isn't so great with Voiceover on the phone. Ally bank is
another one I've tried, and although it wasn't the greatest years ago,
they have decent accessibility now. Their only down side is that they
don't really have deposit or withdrawal notifications on the phone app
like Simple did. I thought about trying something like Chime, but not
sure how accessible they are. They appear to have a better ATM network
in that there are machines closer to where I go than some of the

Why Are My Windows Opening Small on the Computer?
By   Lara Webster   
article
Google Nears 10th Anniversary
 Internet browser windows can have multiple tabs open at the same time.
Image Credit: Patrik Stollarz/Getty Images News/Getty Images
 
Whether you are using Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox to browse the Internet, your browser windows can be adjusted to a variety of sizes. If
your windows are always opening in a smaller version it reflects the current settings of your Internet browser. You can change the settings so that windows
always open as large as possible.
 
 Small Windows
 
Small windows on an Internet browser are referred to "normal windows" and they are often the default setting for a Web browser. For your browser window
to occupy your entire screen it must be set to "Maximize" mode. The process for changing the size in which a window opens is the same for Google Chrome,
Internet Explorer and Firefox.
 
 Changing Settings
 
If you want all Internet browser windows to open across your full computer screen, locate the shortcut to the browser on your desktop or recently visited
programs list. Right-click on the shortcut icon and choose "Properties" from the context menu that appears. Go to the "Shortcut" tab and locate the "Run"
line, which holds a drop-down menu. Choose "Maximized" from the menu and then click "OK" to save your new setting.
 
 Individual Website Settings
 
Even if you ask your browser to open all windows in a maximized view, sometimes a website has settings that will not allow it to adhere to your request.
In that case the website will still open in a normal size window. You can always, however, manually expand an Internet browser window so that it fills
your entire computer screen. When you manually change a window size and close it in that state, your browser will remember the setting the next time you
open a window.
 
 Manually Maximizing Windows
 
To manually enlarge your browser window, click the square icon in the top right corner of the browser window located immediately to the left of the "X"
icon. Alternatively, press and hold the "Alt" key while you press the space bar on your keyboard. When the menu appears in the top left corner of your
browser, hit the "X" key, which is the shortcut for opening a maximized window.

You still can do that. In Windows there are usually at least two ways to do anything.

that provide an alternate way to do something you'd
typically do with a mouse.
Here are several common keyboard shortcuts:
list of 8 items
. Copy: Ctrl + C
. Cut: Ctrl + X
. Paste: Ctrl + V
***. Maximize Window: F11 or Windows logo key + Up
Arrow
. Task View: Windows logo key + Tab
. Switch between open apps: Windows logo key + D
. Shutdown options: Windows logo key + X
. Lock your PC: Windows logo key + L
list end


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

Re: returning home

That is the command given on this page for opening the home page.
 
I don’t know how you set a ;page as the home page in Chrome.  As I understand it, there also can be more than one.  It may be that you have a page that is displayed when the browser opens that may not be the home page.  Others who know more about home pages in Chrome may be able to discuss the question further.  I don’t want a home page displayed and I don’t know details about the different options in different browsers.

Hi,

Using google chrome, not sure about other browsers, I think it worked with IE but alt home would take me back to the home page, in this case startpage.com.

It’s not doing that for me in chrome, what setting needs to be configured for that?

Thank you.

Having an audible membership also entitles you to some really decent sales. I must have purchased 25 books last week during the two for one sale.

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.

ram flavour

Monte Single
 

Hi List,

 

Curious George here, again.

What flavour of ram are the new pcs and laptops using?

Is ddr4 still the flavour of the day or has ddr5 or x or xx now in use?

 

Cheers,

 

Mont

That’s because you linked the app on your phone not the actual echo devices.

You can link the app or you can link the echo devices.

But I think you made yourself a headache by subscribing under a different email address.

Its designed to be on the a same email as your Alexa devices.

I unlinked my old email address, linked the new one, but when I asked alexa to play music by such an such, it says I must have amazon music unlimited which I do have. 😕😕

Say Alexa play (song/singer) from amazon music. You may also need to go into settings in the alexa appp & authorize amazon music to be used. If you go to amazons website, go to your account settings you can link your accounts.

Hi,

I think I have the echo second gen. Here is my question. I signed up with amazon music using a different email, so how do I get the echo to play amazon music with that account?

Do I have to sign out on the alexa appp? Before, I was using amazon music with the previous email but now since I have amazon music with a different email, what do I do?

I’m not proficient with the echo.

Thanks for any assistance.

 

 


Re: echo question

The simplest way to solve your problem is for you to use your amazon music email to create a 2nd amazon account. Once you have created the 2nd amazon account, using the amazon website, go into my account find link my accounts & link your 1st amazon account to your 2nd account. Or you can log into your 1st amazon account, go to my account, find link accounts & link your 2nd amazon account to your 2nd account. To play amazon music on more than 1 alexa device you have to have amazon family & friends account, where up to 6 devices can be used. This is what I was told by an amazon rep about a mnth ago when I was setting up my alexas & joining amazon music.
