windows home or pro

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

Josh Kennedy
 

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.

Hello Audacity users,

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

I think it just depends on how advanced and fancy you want to get with

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.

home this laptop was a special order with a 120gb solid state drive...
anyway narrator would not come on. i plugged in a external keyboard,
finnished setting it up and got it onto the desktop. through
experimenting i found the laptop's built-in keyboard has some keys that
do not work. so i called and asked for a return shipping label to send
it back and have it repaired. they are sending me one in the mail. But
my question sis this. if for some reason they cannot repair it and they
return my $220 I am then planning to get a new computer. my two choices
are these.
1. for $199, hp stream 11.6  inch screen windows10 home and latest
laptop with AMD e2 processor, 4gigs ram and 32gb EMMC storeage with
micro sd card slot. main issue is windows10 does not let you yet, use
the sd card as permanent storeage to store apps and all user data
including your %appdata% folder on the sd card. in other words you
cannot yet set the sd card as the default write disk for everything like
you can with some android devices like with my blu energy x phone.
or my second choice
2. for $289, hp f222wm 15 inch touch screen windows10 home latest laptop
with pentium n quad core, 500gb traditional spinning hard drive 4gigs ram.
but I hope blair technology group can repair or replace the computer and
give me a good refurbished working one. what do you all think?

Re: intro and buying new computer

my only concern is with storeage on the stream. 4gigs of ram is enough for what I do. the only real reason I'd need 8gigs ram is if I did tons of audio editing or ran memory hungry virtual machines, which I don't do. I'm just wondering if I could somehow save my favorite audio games, and jaws for windows microsoft office, NVDA and a few other apps would they all fit on the 32gigs of space? I guess I could make sure windows10 is compacted with the command line


compact /compactos:always


running it in an admin command line will compact the OS and compress it as small as possible. Blair gave me a free shipping label so they said I can send it back and they will repair the laptop or replace it since its under the 1 year warranty. if only windows10 would let me change the default write disk to the sd card and migrate the entire users folder and all subfolders and also the program files folders and program data folders over to the micro sd card then storeage on the hp stream latest model with 4gigs ram would not be an issue.

Re: intro and buying new computer

Hello.

I agree. 32 GB of storage doesn't go very far with windows. Keep in mind, this holds the windows installation as well so you will probably not have more than 16 GB available once set up. If you're doing audio and video editing and running programs like jaws or office on it it's not going to last that long. If you're truly stuck on those 2 computers then go with the more expensive one. Then if you wish you could get a 120 GB ssd if you really want it.

The Stream is using EMMC flash which is slow solid state memory used in cheap tablets and laptops.  Not at all equivalent to a true SSD.  The f222wm has a conventional mechanical drive with much more storage capacity which could most likely be swapped out later for a true SSD if desired.  Besides, this argument of SSD versus conventional mechanical drive has it's limits when the buyer is clearly working on a budget.  In this case, I would say that 500 GB of conventional storage is much more valuable than 32 GB of slow EMMC solid state flash.
