Window Eyes has an app "virtual view" which lets you navigate the regular Facebook page in IE. If 'Virtual View" is install, Open Facebook then turn on  "web application" with control, Insert, A. Then you can navigate with J and K. read the documentation to see other keys.

I'm building a Windows Recovery stick. It's going to have your TWPE as a

backup and restore these days. Maybe things have changed since you built
that thing last? What are your thoughts?

It should also be said that this searching will look in a folder and it's
subfolders. Sometimes in large, nested folders, the search may take a while.
This is a great way to find a song in a large folder with many subfolders.

Also, after you hit windows E, you can use the control F keystroke, and it
will put you in that edit field.
Remember after you type in your search term, you need to press inter. You
then just down arrow through the list.
Once in the list, the context menu works well.

outlook.com and outlook 2016

Kimsan
 

Hi,

 

Last week, I noticed something was strange regarding my emails in outlook 2016 and outlook.com.

 

In outlook 2016, I had several emails that should be there and I’ve read but not deleted.  However, on the outlook.com site, in the inbox I see all the messages.  How come they are visible on outlook.com and not outlook 2016?

 

Thanks.

You can use wild cards to find specific types of files in the Explorer search box.  For example, you could type

If you are searching for files only on your computer, from Windows 7 on, it is better to use the search in Windows Explorer itself instead of the start menu search.  You can avoid the extraneous results that way.  I don't know if the same interface is used in Windows 10 for searching using Windows Explorer so I'll let others discuss that.

If you know the file extension, you can just type

*.extension

Or if you know the extension, but not the exact name of the file and you think it contains the word "child", you could for example type

*child*.doc

This would search for all files which contain the word "child" in the name and also have the .doc extension.

Using your suggestion below, must I know the name of the file?

 

What if I’m looking for a document that I know had something to do with child support for example but the file isn’t called child support.

You can use wild cards to find specific types of files in the Explorer search box.  For example, you could type

*.txt

to search only for text files with the .txt extension.

If you are searching for files only on your computer, from Windows 7 on, it is better to use the search in Windows Explorer itself instead of the start menu search.  You can avoid the extraneous results that way.  I don't know if the same interface is used in Windows 10 for searching using Windows Explorer so I'll let others discuss that.

Hi,

 

I normally use the search on the start menu when searching.  However, so many different file types show up when doing that.  My question is when searching, I just want documents to show up and not web results, mp3’s etc.  Older OS’s if memory serves, windows key f and function key 3, I would be able to search for documents only, but the above keystrokes no longer work.  How can I search and only documents show up in the results?

 

Thanks.

You could also just type the word "child" by itself as a keyword.  This would search for any file of any type which has the word "child" anywhere in it's name.
