Re: fixing firefox

Gene
 

By a complete uninstall, do you mean manually removing a folder left behind after you uninstall the program using programs and features?  Does it also entail any deletions from the registry to get rid of settings?
 
Here is a step-by-step description of how to find the feature.  Try this first.
New major steps start on new lines:
When Firefox is opened, press alt then release it and type t then o.
Wait two or three seconds.
Shift tab three times.
Press end, then up arrow once.
Now Shift tab twenty-one times. 
Press the space bar.
You may immediately be able to tab or shift tab and hear information, which means the problem has been solved.  I'm not sure if you have to restart Firefox to have this setting take place; usually, you don't..

uninstalling drop box problem

Hi,

My new situation is that I want to remove drop box and it will not uninstall. I have tried a few times with the same message appearing that the uninstall was unsuccessful.

What can I do to uninstall successfully?

Re: laptop keyboard, delete key won't function

Patrick Ford
 

Hi,

I actually just got off the phone from MS disability support, and by remote access the tech fixed the problem. There was some kind of snag  at the start up with some conflict with programs which caused  some performance problem. He disabled a few like drop box and then did a restart  and the delete key is working fine. With drop box  and the other programs once again enabled, another restart just to check and the delete key is still functioning.

Thanks for getting back and for your help.

Thanks Gene, the delete key does not function in general; I noticed last night that after trying a combination of keys along with the delete  key, the shift plus delete key does make the delete key function. But this should not be. The delete key always worked alone. Does windows have some program that could change the function of keys, and perhaps I accidently set this in motion?

Btw I'll be using my 2nd generation Victor reader stream to find it if that matters, and it is mentioned that the podcast is available through both iTunes and Spodify but I don't subscribe to either one of those.

Re: configuring my new laptop with my hip wireless printer

Troy Burnham
 

I think it's a deskjet printer.


After posting to the list last night I realized that I should look on hp.com, and I found some drivers and installed them but then I got side-tracked so I'm not sure if the drivers ever got completely installed and I haven't had a chance to see if I can access the printer from this machine or not yet.  I assume that the drivers are installed because the last thing I remember is being asked if I needed to buy ink.


I also gave the wrong model number last night, I said it was an hp 3930 but it's an hp 3830.  The drivers I installed were for the 3830, but my only sighted help was busy doing something else at the time so I just hope I installed the correct drivers.  What I installed was for an all in one printer, and I thinnk we can both fax and make copies with this printer but I'm not sure.

I explained the limitations of ink jet printers, was able to afford a laser for her. The laser started smoking one day, I told her to just unplug it from the wall, likely everything would be OK.

She is blind, freaks out, calls the Fire Department that responds with screaming sirens, clanging bells and flashing lights, unplugs the printer for her and all is well.

Ink jet printers should never be used to print a cheque or contract as the ink can smudge with a sweaty hand. Dishonest people can easily change the amount the cheque you wrote for them. Lasers produce smudge-free, permanent, images.

I am lucky in that I have a color, duplex, laser printer. Do 99% of my printing in black, however, can print an important word in red so it jumps off the page it stands out so well?

Re: what is grid view as opposed to list view?

John Dowling <1008jmd@...>
 

wow. So grid view for windows kind of reminds me of list view for mac, where all the items are in alphabetical order, but it doesn't start with the folders and end with the files.

Hi Joanne,
 
This is my observation when it comes to grid and list view.
 
I use grid view when I am in Dropbox and list view for most other things. In list view, all the folders are in alphabetical order at the top and the files are in alphabetical order after the folders.
 
In grid view, they are in alphabetical order, but folders and files are not separate. In Other words, the item at the top of the list may be a folder, after that a file, then another file, then three folders, another file, etc. Everything is in alphabetical order, just not separated as to files and folders.
 
If you have extensions showing, it is easy to tell them apart because files will show an extention and folders will have only a name. You access the folder contents the same as you usually do, but if you have files and folders inside the original folder in grid view, they will also show up in grid view, at least mine do.

Try another screen-reader.  I can't answer definitely because I don't want to assume what odd things might happen when using a computer.  But NVDA shouldn't cause the problem.

 

Where does the delete key not work, in general or in a specific program?

On an Acer Aspire laptop, windows 10, the delete key stopped functioning; I receive a windows sound which seems to indicate a wrong key  …I’m using NVDA as well …could this be the problem?
