Re: Problem With Wireless Card

We are getting a bit off track.
That's very  unfortunate for those people who just do lousy jobs.

Then again, as tech people, we do things within SOP, but not all things can be done that way. 
For example, SSD are supposed to mount onto a 5.25 bay area with an adaptor which can convert into either two or one 2.5 bay area.
but it can be easily mounted with just one screw or two since the SSD itself does not have moving parts, so no vibration will affect it. if cost is a factor to get the convertor adaptor or just a cheap solution.
i am referring to a desktop since laptop don't use such a 5.25 bay

Even SSD are much thinner, so that's some sort of plastic kit to make it a bit bigger to mount onto a laptop inside.

As for the original post about the wireless card issue, if you can move the wireless router or the desktop or computer nearer to one another, see if the problem persist.
i doubt 2 out of 4 bar of signal will random not connectivity.

Kind of no choice, if you don't have the skills to do that, you just need to engage someone to do that.

You can try, but it's all about risk. 

just like you  will not fix a plumbing issue on your own if you are not sure how to fix it or even replace or repair a window that fell off etc.

 

People like us or tradesman  train themselves to do their job right and properly but unfortunately, not all of them are good at what they are doing.

Re: Spotify & region restrictions

I use my paid Spotify on both my computer and my phone and when I'm signed in, it works very well, but if I try to use it when I'm signed out, it works completely different, if it works at all. There may be some restriction if your friend either is not signed in with a free account or is using a free account rather than a paid subscription.

Windows 10, Master the Alt + Tab Keystrokes

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Just thought this information might interest some of you.

 
 
Master Windows 10’s Alt+Tab Switcher with These Tricks
CHRIS HOFFMAN
@chrisbhoffman
UPDATED NOV 10, 2020, 6:51 PM EDT | 4 MIN READ
 
Alt+Tab switcher on a Windows 10's desktop.
 
Alt+Tab lets you switch between open windows, but there’s more to it than that. The Alt+Tab switcher has other useful-but-hidden
keyboard shortcuts.
These tips apply to both Windows 10 and 7.
 
Standard Alt+Tab usage is pretty basic. Just press Alt+Tab, hold the Alt key down, and then keep pressing the Tab key to scroll through your open windows.
Release the Alt key when you see an outline around the window you want.
 
Alt+Tab in Reverse
 
Switching between windows with Alt+Tab on Windows 10.
 
Alt+Tab normally moves forward, from left to right. If you miss the window you want, you don’t have to keep pressing Tab and go all the way through the
list again. That works, but it’s slow—especially if you have lots of windows open.
 
Instead, press Alt+Shift+Tab to move through the windows in reverse. If you’re Alt+Tabbing and go past the window you want, press and hold the Shift key
and tap Tab once to go back to the left.
 
Select Windows with the Arrow Keys
 
You can select windows in Alt+Tab with the arrow keys. Press Alt+Tab to open the switcher and keep holding down the Alt key. Rather than pressing Tab,
use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight the window you want, and then release the Alt key, press the Enter key, or press the space bar.
 
Use Your Mouse to Switch and Close Windows
 
Click the red X to close a window in Windows 10's Alt+Tab switcher.
 
You can also use your mouse with the Alt+Tab switcher. Press Alt+Tab, keep holding the Alt key and click the window you want to switch to.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
 
While using your mouse, you’ll notice a bonus: an “x” appears at the top-right corner of a window thumbnail when you hover over it. Click the “x” to close
an application window. This is a quick way of closing a lot of windows.
 
Alt+Tab Without Holding Alt Down
 
The Alt+Tab switcher normally closes when you release the Alt key. But, if you’d like to Alt+Tab without holding the Alt key down the whole time, you can.
Press Alt+Ctrl+Tab, and then release all three keys. The Alt+Tab switcher will stay open on your screen.
 
You can use the Tab key, the arrow keys, or your mouse to select the window you want. Press Enter or the space bar to switch to your highlighted window.
 
Close the Alt+Tab Switcher Without Switching
 
You can close the Alt+Tab switcher at any time by releasing the Alt key, but this will switch to the window you currently have selected. To close the Alt+Tab
switcher without changing windows, press the Escape (Esc) key on your keyboard.
 
Activate the Old Alt+Tab Switcher
 
Classic gray Alt+Tab switcher on Windows 10.
 
Remember the old Windows XP-style Alt+Tab switcher? It didn’t have any window thumbnail previews, just icons and window titles over a gray background.
You might still see this Alt+Tab switcher on Windows 10 for compatibility reasons while playing certain games.

You can
open the old Alt+Tab switcher with a hidden keyboard shortcut,
too. Press and hold the left or right Alt key, tap and release the other Alt key on your keyboard, and then press Tab. The old switcher appears, but this
one time only—next time you Alt+Tab, you’ll see the standard, new Alt+Tab switcher.
 
The classic switcher doesn’t let you use your mouse or the arrow keys. However, it does support Ctrl+Shift+Tab to go through windows in reverse, and you
can press Esc to close it.
 
If you really love this old Alt+Tab switcher—and we’re not sure why you would—you can
switch back to it by changing the “AltTabSettings” value in the Windows registry.
It will then always appear when you press Alt+Tab.
 
Switch Between Tabs Instead of Windows
 
Switching between tabs with Ctrl+Tab in Google Chrome.
 
This isn’t an Alt+Tab keyboard trick, but it’s so similar and important we have to include it. In almost any application that offers built-in tabs, you
can use Ctrl+Tab to switch between tabs, just as you’d use Alt+Tab to switch between windows. Hold down the Ctrl key, and then tap Tab repeatedly to switch
to the tab to the right.
 
You can even switch tabs in reverse (right to left) by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Tab. There are many
other keyboard shortcuts for working with tabs,
too.
 
Use Task View with Windows+Tab
 
Task View interface on Windows 10.
 
Okay, this one technically isn’t an Alt+Tab shortcut, either, but hear us out. Windows+Tab is a similar keyboard shortcut to Alt+Tab. It opens
the Task View interface,
 which offers a thumbnail view of your open windows and even multiple desktops you can arrange them on. It also includes the
Windows Timeline,
but you can
disable it
 if you prefer.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
 
After pressing Windows+Tab, you can release both keys and use either your mouse or the arrow keys to select a window. To move a window onto another virtual
desktop, drag it to the desktop icon at the top of the screen with your mouse.
 
This is the same interface that opens when you click the Task View button to the right of the Cortana icon on your taskbar. However, the keyboard shortcut
might be more convenient.
 
At the very least, this is more useful than
the old “Flip 3D” feature
 on Windows 7 and Vista. That felt more like a tech demo for 3D on Windows rather than a useful window switcher.
 
Install a Replacement Alt+Tab Switcher
 
Alt+Tab Terminator on Windows 10.
 
You can also replace the built-in Windows Alt+Tab switcher with a third-party Alt+Tab replacement. For example, NTWind’s free
Alt+Tab Terminator
 offers a more powerful, customizable Alt+Tab switcher. It has larger window previews and a built-in “Terminate” function to close misbehaving applications.
If you’re looking for something a bit different, give it a try.
 
Alt+Tab Terminator is the successor to VistaSwitcher, which we’ve
recommended
 in the past.

So the Go Flip 3 on Verizon is not the one with KaiOS.

The one with KaiOS is the one that has all of the FB and YouTube stuff.

That KaiOS phone only works on T-Mobile.

The FB and YouTube stuff isn’t accessible.

I’ve  found the google assistant to be horribly slow.

I also don’t  like the call quality.

Yes, the menus do talk.

I haven’t tried texting on it and am no longer subscribed to the T-Mobile prepaid plan.

I got this phone to try it and a  plan thru T-Mobile so I could give it a go after wondering about I it for  3 years.

Yes,

 

Kevin at juno dot com will ship to Canada,  but you must be prepared to pay import charges if any apply.

 

For example, with the free trade deal between Canada, Mexico and the us,  there should be no import duties on most items, but if you want to buy, say,a laptop  from Kevin, that was made in china, import duties may apply.

Hey Mike,

Yep. But I will try updating the device driver and see if that works.

The machine was built by a blind dealer who has a good rep. I will contact
him if I can't solve this. Thanks for the suggestions.

Subject: [TechTalk] Problem With Wireless Card



I just got a new computer and have set up my wireless card to the internet.

Yesterday, I noticed that I can't connect. When I look at the systray,
it shows my internet service with a 2 out of four bars. But when I to
connect, it says that it can't connect.

It sounds like the wireless adapter has gone out. Is there anything I
can do to restore this card? More disturbing to me is why did this happen?

Anyway, any suggestions are welcomed?

I don't remember how much mine were, but not that expensive.
I have had them for only a few months.

I went over to my Visa file and checked. I paid $23.15 for
60 dots and two of their better signature guides plus
shipping.

Monte:

There are six in a package, and they sell for $1.75 on the
Maxi aid site.

Yes, on Amazon, they are very expensive.

Yes, Kevin and Xavier both of whom are on the BlindAds list, but I'm
sure they aren't the only blind/visually impaired people building
computers.

Stay safe,

This guy I have bought several computers from and he has great deals, but I
don't know if ships outside the continental United States.
