getting admin rights on a windows 8.1 computer

Keith S
 

Hi, the windows 8.1 computer I own was a used one that my wife picked up from a co-worker.  His father passed away and she got it for under $200.00
 
I have changed/created an account so I can log in, but when I try to save something to the actual C; drive (the only partition other than the portion that is partitioned on the hard drive as a backup for the install of windows 8.1), I get an error saying that I cannot save anything to the C: drive due to me not having admin rights.
 
I am the only user on the computer.
 
So, my question, how do I change my account to show that I do have admin rights?
 
Thanks
 
Keith


Re: new malwarebytes question

Gene
 

you said in part:
That's all we can really ask for as users of their software.
 
We can ask for more and it should be done.  We can ask that they have blind people test the program while it is in alfa and beta before it is released.  The developers of Malware Bytes consistently don't do this, consistently introduce new accessibility problems into every major update and blind people are forever waiting for the next version so that problems that were introduced in the previous version will be fixed.  If the developers are really concerned, they will make a point of having blind people test the development versions of the program.  I find it extremely difficult to believe that this hasn't been suggested a lot of times.  So why isn't it being done?

Re: braille printer recommendation needed

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

Enabling Technologies does make some great embossers, I had a Romeo that was great. Whatever you choose, spend the extra money to get a sound cover for it. The noise of an uncovered braill embosser is too much to handle for more than 1 or 2 sheets. These covers aren't cheap either, costing hundreds of dollars by them selves. An insulated wooden box that can sit over the embosser will serve the same purpose for a small fraction of the price.

Hi.  A little while ago I asked on this list about the feasibility of printing onto CD labels.  From what I can gather this is not practical without sighted assistance, or at least I didn't notice anybody saying it was possible without sighted assistance.  Carlos mentioned Lightscribe discs which are no more but I have since discovered that although Lightscribe isn't an option Inkjet printing is.  It would appear that you can print directly onto discs that are inkjet printer compatible and Amazon sells those discs.  Therefore can anybody recommend an Inkjet printer that will print on to inkjet discs?  I do appreciate that the interface may not be very blind friendly, if at all but if I had sighted help it should be OK, I hope.  I understand that Canon printers will handle those printable discs but I don't really know if they are good printers for this purpose.  Some of the reviews on Amazon were very mixed.  One person asked if the printer will print on to discs and another person responded that "apparently it does if you can get it to do so" and that doesn't inspire confidence.  The problem with reviews  in my mind is they are not objective and hence I never really read them but my friend loves reading them and she read that one out to me.  So, can anybody recommend a good quality inkjet printer that will print directly on to CD and one that doesn't require a master's degree in computing to get it to do so?  With many thanks.  Walter.

what kind of problems this new 3.2.2 version is giving screen reader users,

& by them being able to see the examples I was demonstrating their tech
agent got a pretty good grasp of what's happening. Especially that
MalwareBytes Tray Application page that covers the desktop. The problem
with this page is that sighted people can't see it, & don't know it's there,

He told me that they were going to put more resources into getting MWB more

screenreader friendly, & that by witnessing the program in action by a
screenreader user it gave him a more clear picture of the issues we're
having. He sounded genuinely concerned with issues the blind users are

Kathy,
Olusegun has a good point here. I just might take him up on his suggestion
in purchasing a cheap Android, but not having the rotor on the phone, I'm
not sure how I would feel about that. I just love tinkering with all these
new smart phones with the touch screens. I thought I wouldn't ever adapt
to the touch screens, but since I bought my iPhone, I love the touch screens
in which at that time were very new to me. Lots of luck in determining what
you might do.

Kathy, since you already have an iPhone, it might be better to stick with
what you already know. This reduces confusion and frustration. That aside,
if you love exploration and enjoy tinkering with new toys, grab the
cheapeast Android phone you can find, play with it, and, if it fits the bill
and lives up to your humble expectation, then wrap your arms around the
Android ecosystem.

There will be some new learning curves! Do NOT ever expect an Android to
mimick an iPhone except for the Galaxy S Series post S5 which has some
semblance to the iPhone. However, depending on how you obtain your phones,
it is a flagship toy that will be pricey. More ounces of patience will be
needed to learn some new techniques--example, perhaps you are used to the
Rotor on your iPhone; the Android OS DOES NOT include a rotor, but the same
tasks can still be performed.

Again, keep your current phone, get a cheap Android phone and learn as much
as you can about Android in general before flipping the switch. And, if you
are happy with what you currently have, keep running with it unless you
enjoy exploring and tinkering with new toys! I hope the foregoing is a bit
helpful as you map out your plans.

Sincerely,
Olusegun

Re: wireless headset that let's you use the microphone and listen to audio at the same time on the pc?

I'm not sure if it will behave in exactly the manner you are requesting, but most standard RF headsets, not bluetooth, such as the Logitech H800
will let you listen and use the microphone at the same time.  Note that the H800 can operate in both bluetooth and RF modes via the included USB dongle, but you would probably want to try this in RF mode.

Hi,
Wow, after one year, you would need a battery! Yes, I use my phone quite often as well, either working with the apps on my phone, or playing Apple music, or listening to the news etc, and yes the batteries do get weak, but I still haven't had to replace the batteries as of yet, and I've been using my phone for 3 in a half years. If batteries might be a concern, you have the choice of insurance in which it might cover the batteries.
Just a thought.

I have only had my second 6s plus for a year after my first one had issues and I notice the battery not being nearly as good as it use to be. I guess it's good I am probably going to get the battery replaced before I upgrade sometime this year beginning of next. Would prefer sometime soon but I am not sure wich phone I want just yet.

Second while there are Android phones which are less expensive, go

I don't use either one and I don't know enough about the subject to
have a preference, ut one factor that hasn't been discussed is that
you can't replace batteries yourself in Apple portable devices. This
may be an important consideration if you intend to keep the device and
use it long enough that one or more battery replacements are required.

Depreciation may be a consideration but if, as is my impression, you
can get a good Android device for much less than an Apple portable
device, that may go some or a long way to mitigate the greater depreciation.

Bob, batteries on Android phones DO NOT START fires! Samsung had an issue
with the battery in its Note7, and that's nothing to do with Android as an
operating system. Please DO NOT share info that's misleading or
disingenuous! In Android land, we can sync all day long with all our
devices to our hearts' content.

In iOS land, there are numerous versions as well; iOS8 isn't the same as
iOS3 or even iOS5! iOS11 will soon hit the marketplace, and it won't ever
be the same as iOS9 or of any other previous incarnation. Let's find a way
to present only the true facts based on personal experience or as gathered
from fair comparison sources. Your post reminds me of what adaptive
technology companies do: They put a deprecated OS in a Braille Notetaker
and try to tell unsuspecting blind folks how well their new product line
will cook you a meal, wash clothes and iron them, clean your bathroom, et
al! In the end, the blind individual figures out a way to raise enough
funds to purchase it; in less than 24 hours or thereabout, he or she finds
out that the product just purchased is lackluster. The return period is
over, and the individual is STUCK with a 7,500-pound gorilla that's barely
functional.

Independence rocks my boat; Android and Windows give this to me
consistently. I'm working at ditching the latter because my preferred
screen reader for it became deprecated and will no longer be produced. I'm
not, however, going to tell any blind individual to put their boat to sea
the way I've done mine especially since our needs may not likely be the same
all across the board.

In the period I have been an Androidean, I have never ever found a
virus-laden app in the PlayStore. And yes, I am an APP JUNKY, always trying
out new apps for usability and accessibility. Perhaps I've been using the
wrong fish hooks, but, I've had great catches! Bob, if you've ever
downloaded an Android app that had viruses, please share the app name! I
promise you, I will download the same app and give it a good run and report
back. Personally, I've never downloaded any iOS app. Be that as it may, I
did play pretty well with the iPhone numerous times. In the end, Android
fitted snugly in my hands and I have NO REGRETS flying its kite! I know for
sure I can run with an iOS device should the need arise; until then, let
Android and the freedom and independence it offers me reign supreme!

Transferring files generally requires the in my opinion rather clunky iTunes software. There are other third-party applications which will let you transfer files, but most of them are not very accessible and usually require that iTunes be installed at least once to obtain the necessary drivers. Transferring files on Android is as simple as connecting a USB cable or inserting a memory card into your computer and copying files in Explorer. More of Apple's proprietary/closed ecosystem policies which I personally despise. And please, let's not start screaming about Apple bashing. Everyone is entitled to their personal opinions and I don't consider constructive criticism bashing. I'm sure just as many users have negative opinions about Android and they are perfectly welcome to voice them here as well.

Also, I don't know enough about this to have an opinion, but I've seen discussions on various lists indicating that it isn't nearly as easy on Apple devices to transfer files from a computer to a device or the other way around.

When my husband takes pictures on the iPhone, he finds it simpler to just email them to himself and work on them rather than hooking up the cable and trying to transfer them.

Best from,

Carolyn

Transferring files generally requires the in my opinion rather clunky iTunes software. There are other third-party applications which will let you transfer files, but most of them are not very accessible and usually require that iTunes be installed at least once to obtain the necessary drivers. Transferring files on Android is as simple as connecting a USB cable or inserting a memory card into your computer and copying files in Explorer.

Also, no earphone jack on an IPhone. I gather there is a work around but I don't know how convenient it is.

It is also worth noting that you cannot use memory cards to expand storage on i devices.

I don't use either one and I don't know enough about the subject to have a preference, ut one factor that hasn't been discussed is that you can't replace batteries yourself in Apple portable devices. This may be an important consideration if you intend to keep the device and use it long enough that one or more battery replacements are required.

Depreciation may be a consideration but if, as is my impression, you can get a good Android device for much less than an Apple portable device, that may go some or a long way to mitigate the greater depreciation.

Good Morning:

Without a doubt, I would stay with Apple.
As stated above by others, if expense is an issue, Android phones
are less expensive. However, Apple is far more secure, has
significantly more accessible apps, is compatible with their other
devices, and do not depreciate nearly as much.
Have a great day.

Bob

Hi Heather,
 
You need to have an issue that they can't fix via email support first, then it gets escalated, & they set up a time & date to call you.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Howdy MWB Users,

 

I just got off the phone with MWB, & doing a screen share.  I showed them what kind of problems this new 3.2.2 version is giving screen reader users, & by them being able to see the examples I was demonstrating their tech agent got a pretty good grasp of what's happening.  Especially that MalwareBytes Tray Application page that covers the desktop.  The problem with this page is that sighted people can't see it, & don't know it's there, but the tech saw & heard what it is, & does.

 

He told me that they were going to put more resources into getting MWB more screenreader friendly, & that by witnessing the program in action by a screenreader user it gave him a more clear picture of the issues we're having.  He sounded genuinely concerned with issues the blind users are having, & very interested in attempting to find remedies for them.  When I hear more I'll let y'all know.

 

Please don't flood the list with questions that I won't be able to answer.  I only showed & told MWB tech support about issues blind users are having, & now it's up to them to see what they can do about them.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
