You can place USB, CD, or both before the hard drive in the boot sequence in which ever order you prefer. Those drives will be checked for bootable disks and if none are found, it will move on to the hard drive.

Carlos,
I've been wanting to do this for some time as well. What is the exact
setting one would use in the BIOS to be able to boot either way, i.e.,
HD, Disk or flash? To further clarify, if BIOS boot is set for HD then
it looks at nothing else, right? But, If BIOS boot is set for flash,
does it look at HD first, then at other media if one is present?
Hope I'm not coming across as too confusing, Thanks in advance, marvin

Once you have the boot sequence in your BIOS configured, you can use
one of my WinPE images http://opopanax.net/download/ which are

I am having my tech change the bios on my HP desktop running Windows
10 anniversary version so in an emergency I will be able to boot
either from a DVD or a flash drive.

I am totally ignorant regarding creating a boot disc; so I hope that
someone on this list can point me to some meaningful instructions as

Thanks for feedback.

Re: unzipping folders or files o n Windows 7

Wasn't the original question how to move files out of an archive without extracting the archive?  Adding the extract all option if it isn't there won't deal with the question.  Associations have to be changed, if they cause another extraction program to run when you press enter on the zip archive.  If you want to extract individual files from a zip archive, you can press enter on the zip archive and, if the Windows zip utility runs, you can move to a file in the list and then copy it to the clipboard.
Then you have to leave the archive opened, open the folder where you want to place the file in, and paste. 
I am guessing that the instructions in the below message only add the items in the context menu.  I am guessing that they may well not change file associations that determine which program opens when you press enter on a zip file. I may be wrong so you can experiment if you like.
 
Someone may be able to tell you how to change the file associations so that the Windows zip utility opens when you press enter on a zip file if a different program opens now.  But I don't see that it makes that much difference if you use the Wwindows zip utility to unzip one file or use a different utility to unzip them all, then paste the file you want where you want it.  It may make a time difference that might be enough to matter if you are extracting really large files.  In a lot of cases, I don't think the time difference matters enough to go through the trouble.  You may spend more time tinkering and trying to solve the problem than you would unzipping four or five or many more archives using what you use now.

It depends on what other unarchive programs are on your machine and what you have them set to do.  You can press enter on a zip file and see what happens.  If another unarchiving program comes up, then I'm not sure how you would change what occurs.  Uninstalling the other program may reverse the situation but I don't know.  Such behavior is controlled by the registry and more actions may be required.  it's probably easier to use whatever utility you generally use, unzip the entire archive, then move the unzipped files where you want.

Re: Looking for a utility

Gene
 

Perhaps the question should be where files are stored in thunderbird and whether they are compressed in some way.  I don't use Thunderbird but I found no export messages option or anything that looked applicable when looking through the menus.  If we knew where messages are saved, it might be as simple as moving them where you want them and using the windows rename command to make whatever changes are desired.

Thunderbird help Please!

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Hi there FOLKS!
Well had a rather annoying issue with thunderbird, but I could live
with it. What it was doing was presenting me with the message
'Thundervird is not responding, wait for the program to respond, or
end program. I generally waited on the program to respond and if
would in a few seconds to minutes. Well now even when I start
thunderbird I receive this message with one exception, it makes no
difference how long I wait Thunderbird will not respond at all..?
Short of removing and re-installing the program which I have done
several times already, does anyone have any ideas on what I might try
to get thunderbird to work again? Thanks for any help! de

This can be done, but it involves a modification to a script. If Sugar wants to know how, she should get with me offline. Carlos’ solution won’t work, since the script that controls this specifically dictates the format of the date that’s to be retrieved and spoken.

Hi

On Windows 7, using jaws 14 and office 2010

When I press the insert and F12it tells me the time

If I press the same keys again it will give me the date(March 7, 2017)

Is there a setting that would allow me to hear the day, full date?

For  example

Pressing F12 is the time

Pressing F12 again I would like it to read me “Tuesday or Tues. March 17, 2017)

 

Is that possible?

I hope that was clear.

Re: Creating a boot disc

Carlos
 

You can place USB, CD, or both before the hard drive in the boot sequence in which ever order you prefer. Those drives will be checked for bootable disks and if none are found, it will move on to the hard drive.

Carlos,
I've been wanting to do this for some time as well. What is the exact setting one would use in the BIOS to be able to boot either way, i.e., HD, Disk or flash? To further clarify, if BIOS boot is set for HD then it looks at nothing else, right? But, If BIOS boot is set for flash, does it look at HD first, then at other media if one is present?
Hope I'm not coming across as too confusing,
Thanks in advance,
marvin

I am having my tech change the bios on my HP desktop running Windows 10 anniversary version so in an emergency I will be able to boot either from a DVD or a flash drive.

I am totally ignorant regarding creating a boot disc; so I hope that someone on this list can point me to some meaningful instructions as to how to proceed.

Thanks for feedback.

It depends on what other unarchive programs are on your machine and what you have them set to do.  You can press enter on a zip file and see what happens.  If another unarchiving program comes up, then I'm not sure how you would change what occurs.  Uninstalling the other program may reverse the situation but I don't know.  Such behavior is controlled by the registry and more actions may be required.  it's probably easier to use whatever utility you generally use, unzip the entire archive, then move the unzipped files where you want.

Re: date and time

I had always assumed that this was a screen-reader behavior but evidently not.  NVDA has an interesting add on that allows you to change how the time is read but I didn't know the date was changeable as described by Carlos.

It really wasn’t as difficult or techy as it sounds..smile

I just went to date and time and went to change calender then chose from the many options I had.

Thanks so much.

All is well and working great.
