contents of folders in windows explorer need to be maximized upon opening folder

joanne
 

This is a recent problem and I don't know if there's a setting to fix this. Many folders in windows explorer will not show the contents of the folder, upon opening, until I maximize the opened folder. It's really annoying and I don't know why this started happening. Using windows 7 and latest jaws. Is there a program that maximizes everything, or is there perhaps a setting I can change so folders open immediately showing the items list?
 
Thanks.

Two possibilities come to mind:

1. Have you checked your spam folder on sbcglobal.net, or just in Outlook 2016?

2. sbcglobal.net may be bouncing messages from those mailing lists. If this is the case the easiest thing to do to remedy it is to use a different email provider for these lists.

Stay safe,

Diabetic Gourmet and Dr. Axe.

I’ve emptied my spam folder and I look through them every morning and

I have contacted sbc global.net and they are no help

I have contacted Microsoft disability but they can’t assist me in this

I have contacted both parties and they have assured me that they have
added me and that they show they have sent them to me

still, I have not found them anywhere.

can someone shed some light on me?

thanks in advance.

Hi, I feel I have to tell my own funny story. My uncle’s next door neighbour has always been going to him whenever he has a computer problem. My Uncle died a few months ago. The neighbour has been in touch with my dad over the months about things to do with the house. The other day the neighbour rang dad asking if we had a disk of my uncle’s that he needed to fix an issue on the computer. We had no luck with the disc so my brother offered to log onto his computer to see if he could fix the problem. He couldn’t do it in person because they are in a different city. So my brother emailed the guy some files that was needed to allow him to log into the computer. So, my brother rang the neighbour to talk him through letting him access the computer. My brother got onto the computer and had a look around. My brother couldn’t find anything wrong and said this to the guy. The guy then replied that it wasn’t this computer that was having the problem it was his old computer. It turns out that the guy had gone out a brought a new computer and this was what my brother was looking at. My brother explained if he wants him to fix the old computer he will need to allow him access to that machine. That was where my brother left it and we figure if he wants the other computer fixed he will be InTouch. However, since he has a new computer I don’t think it is a big issue now.

Hi All,

 

Just thought some of you would get a kick out of this.

 

 

Don't feel stupid about using your computer, read on.

 

This is an  excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article:

 

1. Compaq is considering changing the command "Press Any Key" to "Press Return Key" because of the flood of calls asking where the Any Key is.

 

2. SAT technical support had a caller complaining that her mouse was hard to control with the dust cover on.  The cover turned out to be the plastic bag
the mouse was packaged in.

 

3. Another SAT customer was asked to send a copy of her defective diskettes. A few days later a letter arrived from the customer along with photocopies
of the floppies.

 

4. Another Dell customer called to say he couldn't get his computer to fax anything.  After 40 minutes of troubleshooting, the technician
discovered the man was trying to fax a piece of paper by holding it in front of the monitor screen and hitting the "send" key.

 

5. A Dell technician received a call from a customer who was enraged because his computer had told him he was "bad and an invalid," The
tech explained that the computer's "bad command" and "invalid" responses shouldn't be taken personally.

 

6. A confused caller to IBM was having troubles printing documents.  He told the technician that the computer had said it "couldn't find printer." The
user had also tried turning the computer screen to face the printer but that his computer still couldn't "see" the printer."

 

7. An exasperated caller to Dell Computer Tech Support couldn't get her new Dell Computer to turn on.  After ensuring the computer was
plugged in, the technician asked her what happened when she pushed the power button. Her response, "I pushed and pushed on this foot pedal and nothing
happens." The "foot pedal" turned out to be the mouse.

 

8. Another customer called Compaq tech support to say her brand-new computer wouldn't work. She said she unpacked the unit, plugged it in and sat there
for 20 minutes waiting for something to happen. When asked what happened when she pressed the power switch, she asked "What power switch?"

 

9. Another IBM customer had troubles installing software and rang for support. "I put in the first disk, and that was OK. It said to put in the second
disk, and I had some problems with the disk. When it said to put in the third disk, I couldn't even fit it in...." The user hadn't realized that "Insert
Disk 2" meant to remove Disk 1 first.

 

10. In a similar incident, a customer had followed the instructions for installing software. The instructions said to remove the disk from its cover and
insert into the drive. The user had physically removed the casing of the disk and wondered why there were problems.

 

11. True story from a Novell NetWare Sysop:

 

Caller: "Hello, is this Tech Support?"

 

Tech: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"

 

Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"

 

Tech: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"

 

Caller: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."

 

Tech: Did you receive this as part of a promotional at a trade show?  How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"

 

Caller: It came with my computer. I don't know anything about a promotion. It just has '4X' on it."

 

At this point, the Tech Rep had to mute the caller because he couldn't stand it. He was laughing too hard. The caller had been using the load drawer of
the CD-ROM drive as a cup holder and snapped it off the drive.

 

12. A woman called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer. The tech asked her if she was running it under "Windows." The woman responded,
"No, my desk is next to the door. But that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window and his  printer is working fine."

 

13. Tech Support: "O.K. Bob, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen.
Now type the letter "P" to bring up the Program Manager."
Customer: "I don't have a 'P'."
Tech: "On your keyboard, Bob."
Customer: "What do you mean?"
Tech: "'P' on your keyboard, Bob."
Customer: "I'm not going to do that!"

 

Now don't you feel better about your skill level?

 

 

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Now my question. I Have my Dropbox to automatically back up from my

where the files go. Is there a way to get Dropbox to backup to
specific folders? And if so, can it be done by file type?

Thanks Much

Re: how to disable hot water on a hot/cold water machine

 

Hello,
If it’s the kind of water cooler that I’m thinking of there should be a switch on the backside that controls the hot water. You might be able to use Be My Eyes or a similar service to be able to read the switches on the back.
Hope this helps,

Ashley
