Re: New look for Windows 10 confusing

Gene
 

I don't see it as a debate, rather a discussion.  While I'll use Windows 10 when I get a computer that has it on the machine, one reason I didn't upgrade an existing machine is that, whenever the twice yearly major upgrades come out, which users can't refuse, I see various problems with them as discussed on lists like this or in the general media.  Just yesterday, though I haven't read it yet, I saw a headline in  a Kim Komando newsletter that said something like, Windows 10 upgrade has a fatal flaw. 
 
Kim Komando usually has good information, but her headlines, as is all too common in Internet only media, often exaggerate or mislead to try to get people to read the article.  But we'll see what this alleged fatal flaw is.  I'll send a link to the article to the list because many people may be curious.
 
I would expect that flaws and problems tend to be worked out in major updates over time by Microsoft updates and screen-reader updates, but I've seen enough inconveniences, even if many are minor, to be glad I didn't upgrade a perfectly well working Windows 7 machine.

Thanks. I have always embrased new technology both in my broadcasting career and with the adaptive technology I use. Microsoft will eventually push you up to the latest as long as you use Windows whether you want to go or not. I've been using Windows 10 since its inception, and have only had problems with this latest update. I'm sory this subject line is getting off track, but felt some explanation was in order. Any further debate should be done off list.

Well, I was one of the "lucky" ones to get the newest windows 10 installations. Upon completion, I find myself feeling like a beginner again. The maximize keyboard command doesn't seem to work, my desktop as I knew it is gone, alt f4 won't take me to my shutdown restart window, it goes on. Figured out lots of stuff doing searches, but how to shotdown and do other stuff still working on. I feel so stupid asking all this stuff. If there is a list of new keyboard commands and someone could point me to them I would be greatful. Cortana in her loving way hooks me up with keyboard command list that are pre-progress.

Thanks loads. Am also considering a little shell program that will give my box a Windows 7 look but don't want to cheat myself of features that after learning may be something for my long term good.

Thanks again.

Re: Adding the sender's email address to Contacts in Outlook 2016?

Thom Spittle
 

I shift tab until I get to the sender box.
I hit home to go to the beginning of the line.
control shift right arrow will select the sender.
Then the application key or shift F10 will open the context menu.

As for the shutdown, I never like the Windows key + D or M followed by alt + F4 method. In Windows 10, try windows key + X followed by U for the shutdown menu. It looks just like the old Windows XP shutdown menu and you get the choice of shutdown, restart, sign out and so on.

Re: Adding the sender's email address to Contacts in Outlook 2016?

Hello;

No, the keystroke ctrl+shift+e=create new folder,

the keystroke ctrl+shift+c=new contact,

here's a easier way to add contact to contacts list,

this works in, outlook 2016,2013,2010, not sure about 2007.

 

The keystroke ctrl+shift+y=Copy a Folder

So, to add contact to the contacts folder,

 

1, enter on the message which contains the email address,

 

2, use the keystroke, ctrl+shift+y=copy A Folder,

You will hear jaws say something like,

Copy item to dialog,

 

3, press the letter c=contacts press enter,

Within a few seconds you should see the

Contact property page with all the contact information,

You can check this by using the tab key.

If your satisfied, just press alt+s=save.

You will be placed back into the message.

This does work with 2016, 2013, I would assume it would work in 2010 also.

Again, the ctrl+shift+y is a office  keystroke.

 

       Statistics are like a bikini.  What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.

dvd's with both audio and video content

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,


Maybe I asked this a few months ago and if I did I'm sorry for repeating it, but maybe there's somebody on the list now that wasn't on then that can help me.


I bought a set of 8 dvd's that has all of the world series baseball games for 2017 between the Houston astros and L.A. Dodgers, and along with the television broadcasts the radio broadcasts for both teams are available on the dvd's.  I can get the tv broadcasts to play with no problem, but I can't find the radio broadcasts and that's what I want to listen to.  Does anybody have experience with dvd's with mixed content like this that can tell me how to find the radio broadcasts?


I even thought that the radio broadcasts may be after the tv broadcast on each disk, but I just went all through the tv broadcast of game 1 on the first dvd and there was nothing after it.  Btw the games play automatically in windows media player, if there's a way to use another player that might make it easier to find what I'm looking for I'd appreciate it if someone would let me know what player that is and how to do it.


Thanks.


Troy
