compacting your windows 10 OS

Josh Kennedy
 

hey I found a useful command line tool that will make your windows 10 OS smaller and run a bit faster. note this only is for windows 10 that is all.


if you run a command prompt in administrator mode and type:


compact /compactos:always
It will compress your OS binaries and free up a few gigs of space. and the command:

compact /compactos:never
will uncompress your OS to the way it was before. so if you are running on small storeage devices you may want to make sure your windows 10 OS is compacted.

for my purposes when I was using my $25 USB cassette tape player to make backups of all my old tapes from the 80s and 90s onto mp3 files for safe-keeping, I used audacity. and its a good thing too. some tapes had four tracks and I had to get the tape into the computer then do some editing to turn those four tracks into separate mp3 files. especially the tapes of the old 2xl robot toys that I still had. I really enjoyed going through those old cassette tapes and backing them up to mp3 files.

Re: audacity vs goldwave

Carlos
 

I don't know. Some have claimed that "fair use" legally allows for such an exception, but I have not seen enough reliable supporting evidence to be sure it truly applies to DRM protected commercial DVDs. That being the case, please do not discuss specific software for doing so on the list.

is it illegal to rip dvds and store a copy on your computer in case the disk gets scratched or broken? maybe with some software like handbrake? just curious. but it really does not apply to me because I buy all my movies through the itunes store on apple tv anyway.

No. Audacity is an audio editor. It is not intended for copying CDs or
DVDs. You can use either AnyBurn
http://www.anyburn.com/
or CDBurnerXP
http://www.cdburnerxp.se/
to copy CDs. As for copying DVDs, commercial DVDs are DRM protected and
copying them is illegal so it should not be discussed here on the list. If
a DVD is not protected, you should be able to copy it by simply transferring
it's contents to your hard drive and then burning it on to a new disc since
DVDs basically just contain data.

Re: intro and buying new computer

Josh Kennedy
 

I just wish that when computer companies sent you a new computer they would email you a copy of the activation key or put it on a braille label inside the box. because I rarely have sighted help around here and although I have a legal license for windows without sighted help if I want to activate my windows I then have to use something like reloader to activate it illegally when I have a perfectly legal key I could use, if only I could see to read it, or had it in audio, or in braille or in an email to somehow type it in.

Hi Josh:

Hopefully what I am about to suggest is NOT a twisted thought ... In a few
weeks, Windows10 Creator will be released and it should come with a talking
installer. I have not personally investigated Windows10 much, but this new
development might make me think things over.

I don't know for sure what almighty Microsoft has in mind, but, typically,
Windows comes in all kinds of flavors and I doubt that Windows10 is an
exception to this rule. Wouldn't it be better to consider getting a
Windows10 Creator Home Edition when it is released in April?

Assuming my thinking is NOT horridly twisted, I am of the opinion that
waiting till April if possible might make better sense! I would hope that
you have enough gear to keep chugging along until then. With that, I'll
disappear and wait to be straightened out by the many folks who are deeper
in the trenches than I am!

I also heard windows 10 creators edition will also have braille display for narrator support out of the box and the talking accesssible installer among other things. I'll just need to use the media creation tool to get the new iso once it is out and then install windows 10 home. Home edition is fine for me because I don't use bitLocker encryption and I don't have to connect to an organization's network and use group policy editor and such. do most of you folks on here use windows home, or windows pro editions?

Re: audacity vs goldwave

Carlos
 

Although some have claimed otherwise, I can't say with certainty that is the case here in the United States. My inclination is to err on the side of caution for the sake of protecting the list since it requires special software to remove the DRM and copy commercial DVDs.

Hello Carlos,

Thanks very much for the info. I always thought that making an extra copy to play in your car was not infringing copyright laws. Perhaps I'm wrong.

No. Audacity is an audio editor. It is not intended for copying CDs or
DVDs. You can use either AnyBurn
http://www.anyburn.com/
or CDBurnerXP
http://www.cdburnerxp.se/
to copy CDs. As for copying DVDs, commercial DVDs are DRM protected and
copying them is illegal so it should not be discussed here on the list. If
a DVD is not protected, you should be able to copy it by simply transferring
it's contents to your hard drive and then burning it on to a new disc since
DVDs basically just contain data.

Hello Audacity users,

Can this program be used to copy CD's or DVD's. If not, could you please
recommend another free program?


Thanks.

I think it just depends on how advanced and fancy you want to get with
your audio editing. If you want to produce more sophisticated audio
projects, I'm guessing Audacity might be better for those kinds of
things. We use Audacity at the radio station where I work.

This might be subjective, but for a newbe, which program would be

Re: intro and buying new computer

Carlos
 

At least with Windows 10, while the talking installation will certainly be useful, I don't think it is enough of a game changer on which to base a decision. Windows 10 already allows you to perform a reset which is fairly accessible. Besides, if you purchase any machine running Windows 10, the Creators edition will be a free upgrade anyway.

Hi Josh:

Hopefully what I am about to suggest is NOT a twisted thought ... In a few
weeks, Windows10 Creator will be released and it should come with a talking
installer. I have not personally investigated Windows10 much, but this new
development might make me think things over.

I don't know for sure what almighty Microsoft has in mind, but, typically,
Windows comes in all kinds of flavors and I doubt that Windows10 is an
exception to this rule. Wouldn't it be better to consider getting a
Windows10 Creator Home Edition when it is released in April?

Assuming my thinking is NOT horridly twisted, I am of the opinion that
waiting till April if possible might make better sense! I would hope that
you have enough gear to keep chugging along until then. With that, I'll
disappear and wait to be straightened out by the many folks who are deeper
in the trenches than I am!

One Drive and Sky Drive

Peter Chin
 

Hello all,

Could someone who uses either of these programs explain to me what they do, how to use them and whether they are free to use? I would also like to know whether they are accessible to screen readers like NVDA or Window-Eyes.


Thanks in advance.

Malware bytes 1.75 questions

Donald L. Roberts
 

I'm running Malware bytes 1.75 on an Asus desktop running Windows 7 home premium. Unfortunately, when I went to upgrade it to Windows 10, I got a message indicating that Windows 10 was incompatible with the display although I don't recall the specific reason.

At any rate, I would like to know the steps for selecting the items to be deleted or quaranteened. I have tried control+a, also left mouse clicking on each individual item, but nothing seems to select the items to be quaranteened or deleted. Incidentally, the screen reader is Window-eyes 9.5.4 if that matters. I also have Jaws if it works better in this regard. So please tell me the answer, regardless of screen reader.

Thanks.

Don Roberts
