Hi.  I saw the free stuff on archive.org but couldn't find a link to the print disabled program.  Is there a link on there that I'm missing or do I need to contact them by email or something to sign up for the program?  Thanks.

You can check out Archives.org and enroll in their print disabled access program. They can find a book that is inaccessible and many times convert it into a form that is readable. If you qualify as print disabled--similar to the NLS program in the USA and the CNIB in Canada, you can gain access to proprietary books that archive.org has access to.

free program to delete files?

john s
 

Does anyone know of a program to delete files? I want a program that will delete files such as, *.xml, *.opf and so on. I would like to save the task so I can repeat them. I looked for such programs and found only programs for shreading and secure removal. I only need normal deletion.

Troy,

There is a little utility that can be installed; it monitors the progress of your dropbox uploads. I forget what it is called.

If Mike B sees this message, he can tell us what it is called.

Thanks Monty. The file I wanted to share was quite large, and evidently it just hadn't finished uploading when I opened the context menu the first time because I tried again after sending my question to the list and there was a copy link to clipboard option in the context menu then.


Btw I do know about changing the 0 at the end of the link to a 1 before sending the link so the file can be downloaded.

How do I share a link to a file that I put in my dropbox? I highlighted the file and hit the context key but none of the options mentioned anything about copying a link to the clipboard. I'm pretty sure that's how I did it in the past.

Archive.org has all kinds of things including the free librovox collection of books and many other collections made available from different libraries from many countries.  It is not limited to United States.  It also has movies, old time radio, tv shows, videos, internet websites content where the sites themselves no longer exist, artwork and many other things too numerous to list here.  Just go to archive.org and look around.

Re: sharing a link to a dropbox file

You can check the progress of uploads.  I believe I have had the copy link item available too early.  You can do so by moving to the system tray, Windows key b, typing d until you get to dropbox and see if the progress is announced.  If it isn’t. depending on the screen-reader you are using, people can tell you how to see the progress.

Re: Opening An Saved Email On Windows Ten Question Please.

Gene
 

I really doubt Outlook Express will read that format.  Outlook Express is a very old program that hasn’t been updated since XP.  The msg format may not have even been around at that time.  It appears that MSG is limited to Office.  It isn’t a standard format in which programs can save or read messages.
 
Also, Windows Live Mail, a much newer program that is similar to Outlook Express wasn’t mentioned in information I looked up.

I was trouble shooting your issue in my brain.  I do not recommend you use this program as your mail app. But, what about outlook express 6.  You can use it to save all the old e-mails in another format like txt. Than you can use programs like thunderbird or ms outlook or the windows10 mail app to check future e-mails. That is a useable program and it will read these file types.  And than you can delete the program because I would not use it to check future mail as it is not supported . If you can, maybe save them in HTML so you can open the files in more programs. I do not think you have to set the program fullally  up to get to open the file types. Just a thought!

Is the e-mail app or program you are using set as the default?  Check to see.  I don’t know why you are getting the message.  What is the extension of the messages you’re trying to open?

HI Heather,

I had Outlook 2010 on win seven, but win seven won’t boot up any more.  

I’m trying to open the .MSG emails from my external drive.  I don’t have Thunderbird, and I don’t know anything about Codex.

I was able to use the mail app and open my old outlook express from my windows xp pc. Do you have Microsoft office? I was able to use outlook to open them too. It will not let me say, use the e-mail to send a message but, it will open so you cant read the text of the e-mail. All my messages were in html format.? Just thinking, do you think a program like Codex will allow you to get the e-mails from that format? I have not tried this but, if you have thunderbird, will it read those messages?  Take care, Heather

Hello Everyone,

I saved several .MSG emails from Windows Seven, and I saved them to my external drive, and I am now trying to open the emails on Windows Ten, and every time I try to open those emails, I get a message asking me to update to Outlook 365, and I can’t get rid of that message, so there for, I can’t read or maybe I should say I can’t open the emails, I am currently using Windows Mail App.  Anyone have any ideas?

I would greatly appreciate any help. 

 

Janet

Re: using windows 7/fix file path too long to delete

See if you can move the files using x to cut and v to paste.  I don’t know if you can move them when you can’t delete them.  If you move them to a folder much closer to the root of the drive, you should be able to delete them.  If you can’t move them, you might try renaming them and making the file names very short.  You might name one a, and another b.  I don’t know if shortening the name would allow you to delete them but if moving them doesn’t work, that might.

I have tried researching this but can only find trying to do what I want done with command prompt. I don't really understand those directions and wonder if I can delete a file that has a long path some other easier way. There was one solution I read using 7 zip file manager, but when I open file manager it doesn't give me a list of possible folders so I can direct it to the problem file. I hope someone can help. I really don't want or need these particular files and hope they can be easily deleted. Using windows 7 and jaws 2019.
 
Thanks.
