Windows 7 has its own unzip utility right in there. You hit the context
menu key, and arrow down to extract all. It won't unzip rar files, though,
but it will do regular zip files. 7zip will do rar files. Pam.

Hello,

I run Windows 7. The only program I know to use is Winrar. I can play
individual files but cannot move them.

I'd like to find a way around this. Thanks.

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

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Rajmund,
 
The, .EML, extension is used as the file format in Outlook Express, & I don't know what other email clients use this file extension.  But, if you take a saved, .EML, file & change its extension to, .TXT, the file becomes almost unreadable because of all the formatting that shows in the .TXT file.  If you save an email message in TXT format with Outlook Express all this formatting will not appear in the saved text file.
Take care.

Hi,
An EML file, to my knowledge, is a TXT file. So when renaming, unless I'm mistaken, you could just add .txt after the name. So if you had a message in the subject of hello, you could just name it hello.txt. Again, I might be wrong.

Re: LogitecH800 Headset

Hi Marie,
 
My dongle was in a small hole in the plastic holder that held the headset, & was a pain in the ass to feel / find!  Here is the buttons & switches layout:

 Device selection switch, located at the rear of the right ear piece.
When you have the headset on, the device selection switch on the right ear can be slid to its bottom setting for off, the middle setting for Bluetooth, and the top setting for RF with the dongle / receiver plugged into the computer.
 
 Volume up, located at 12:00 on the face of the right ear piece.
 
 Volume down, located at 6:00 on the face of the right ear piece.
 
Microphone mute, located at 9:00 on the face of the right ear piece.
The mute button mutes all sound input to the headset when playing music.
The mute button mutes the boom microphone when on the phone.
 
 Play/pause or Answer call/end call, located at 3:00 on the face of the right ear piece.
 
 Next track/Fast Forward, located at the bottom of the right ear piece between the USB port and the power/device selection switch.
Press the button down towards the charging port for, Next Track / Fast Forward.
 
 Previous track/Rewind, located at the bottom of the right ear piece between the USB port and the
power/device selection switch.
Press the button up towards the device selection switch for, Previous Track / Rewind.

Intel buys driverless car technology firm Mobileye

Intel buys driverless car technology firm Mobileye

Driverless carImage copyright Mobileye
US chipmaker Intel is taking a big bet on driverless cars with a $15.3bn (£12.5bn) takeover of specialist Mobileye.

Intel will pay $63.54 a share in cash for the Israeli company, which develops "autonomous driving" systems.

Mobileye and Intel are already working together, along with German carmaker BMW, to put 40 test vehicles on the road in the second half of this year.

Intel expects the driverless market to be worth as much as $70bn by 2030.

Jerusalem-based Mobileye has contracts with 27 car makers. It also controls about two thirds of the market for software that runs automatic emergency braking and semi-autonomous cruise control systems already fitted to cars and trucks.

Technology companies are racing to launch driverless cars.

Earlier this month, Nissan test drove a converted Leaf vehicle and said it hoped to make the cars available by 2020.

Google has also done extensive development of driverless cars.

Announcing the deal, Intel said that as cars "progress from assisted driving to fully autonomous, they are increasingly becoming data centres on wheels".

The chipmaker reckons that by 2020 driverless cars will generate 4,000 GB, or 4 terabytes, of data a day that can be mined for information.

Mobileye logoImage copyright Getty Images
Betsy Van Hees, analyst at Loop Capital Markets, said Intel had very little presence in the automotive market, "so this is a tremendous opportunity for them to get into a market that has significant growth opportunities".

Timothy Carone, a Notre Dame University academic, said: "Major players are finding ways finding ways to position themselves for a change as seminal as the personal computer revolution."

Shares in Intel fell 2.2% to $35.10 in New York.

Mobileye was founded in 1999 to develop "vision-based systems to improve on-road safety and reduce collisions".

The company, along with Intel's automated driving group, will be based in Israel and led by Amnon Shashua, Mobileye's co-founder, chairman and chief technology officer.

In its results for last year, Mobileye said revenue more than tripled to $358m, while pre-tax profit jumped from $79.7m to $125.4m.

Not really. Although you could sometimes sort of pull it off on older machines with a parallel port and a hardware speech synthesizer. Probably not with braille either since no drivers for the display are loaded at the point the BIOS is displayed.

Subject: [TechTalk] Thunderbird help Please!



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
<KF8LT><Jim>.

I'm not sure what you mean and I don't believe additional effort is necessary since the suggested solution resolved the issue.

Use Windows 17 gives you the day and the date.

I will look in the scripts, and see if I can extract the section you need.

The solution I suggested does work.  I would not have posted it otherwise.

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.

This is a screen-reader behavior.  I am not aware of a JAWS way to do this but that doesn't mean there isn't one.  NVDA announces the day.

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.

Is there any way to do this with speech, or Braille?

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
effectively a type of boot disk that include NVDA for speech.

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.

Re: unzipping folders or files o n Windows 7

Maybe I missed the original question.  But I responded to the question I saw.  Sorry!  Pam.

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.

Hi, and thanks for the info about Windows having its own unzip utility.

How do I find it or will it pop up when I try opening a zipped file?
