Confused about the differen versions of Outlook Express

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

A few months ago I purchased a version of Outlook Express for $10where I got thre keys.  I tried it and did not like it, I thought I would try it again to see if they have improved it. I found Outlook Express Classic download for $24, is these two the same?


Re: Lenovo laptops

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>
 

It might be something that's specific to certain models, but yes, the ability to turn off the touch pad on some of them does indeed work. He either needs to do a little better on his research or perhaps the model he's telling you about doesn't have the ability. Mine as an example has two different pointing devices, the touchpad and the trackpoint, which is sorta like a little joystick slightly below and between the g and h keys on the keyboard, so normaly I disable the touchpad and only use the trackpoint.
Take care.

Also the rep said, they did not have the application key on the keyboard! Also that I could not turn off my track pad so when I type, I do not move the track pad while I am typing! So any one who has a Lenovo is this correct? Cheers Heather

Hi,

As for when to install it, I advise waiting until later in October, as by then Fall Creators Update would have been out in the wild for some time.

Cheers,

Subject: [TechTalk] question about installing free windows 10

 

Hi, planning on downloading and installing windows 10 to update my 8.1 computer.

 

question:

 

Can I use a USB keyboard to setup the windows 10 OS on a laptop, or do I have to use the laptop's built in keyboard?  I have really bad neropathy in my hands and can use a USB keyboard with the raised keys, while not being able to differentiate between keys on the laptaop's keys.  If I have to use the laptop's built in keyboard, I'm going to have to find  sighted assistance with upgrading the OS, and that's going to be an issue due to the screen (my wife tells me) looks like someone spilled liquid into the screen.

 

Thanks for any help/info

Re: The end of my shiny Android saga.

The Voice Command is in Tools. I can try to go there and get
it, but it appears from what it did this afternoon, that it
pretty much rreads contacts to make calls. I thought it
might send a message like Siri, but I'm pretty sure it only
does the contacts, and it is having to adjust to my voice,
but finally got one right and called. I just wanted to see
if I could make it do it.

I am trying to figure how to make it save a new contact. My
husband says I want to do it all in a day. I say why not? He
is a one who can take things slow, says we do a better job
one thing at a time.

Sorry, Ann Parson for getting your last name wrong.

I am having some trouble figuring out exactly how to do
texts and put in new contacts. My husband says I want to do
it all in a day, well, why not? I have deleted some contacts
and put in a few speed dials. I like them better than
favorites, but memory is something that has come easily for
me, so whatever works for someone.

Hello I was told by Lenovo that they do not have any separation from the arrows with their keyboards and I like the separation of the arrow keys, not a big separation just to know that they are the arrow keys. Also the rep said, they did not have the application key on the keyboard! Also that I could not turn off my track pad so when I type, I do not move the track pad while I am typing! So any one who has a Lenovo is this correct? Cheers Heather

I got rid of my Lenovo - no application, plus a Function key in my way. I don't remember anything annoying about the arrows, but $15 for a Logitech works fine for me.

Best from,

Carolyn

Hi,

At least on my ThinkPad, the bottom-right keys are arrow keys plus Page Up and Page Down keys (next to the up arrow key).

Cheers,

Joseph

Does it have buttons?

pointing out that aspect. It does a thorough job of it, even
will tell me, like if you were in my list, Ann Parks,
102/138. I currently have 138 contacts. I haven't had it 24

Hi all,

Carolyn, Which LG did you say this was? Does it make adding
contacts
easy? Can you get the battery status? Does it tell you
who texts are
from when you go to the inbox?

Re: Lenovo laptops

 

I have the L 540. It has the full keyboard, I mean the numpad. It's
arrow keys are close together, but the down arrow has a raised
lip/line. That makes it easier for me to feel it, but I'm guessing
someone with better sensitivity (or normal touch) will feel it better.
I've not found an applications key, but where one would be on my
keyboard there is a print screen button.... I plan on using sharpkeys
to re map that to appliccations when I get a chance.
