Sometimes, you can display the full image or window by pressing alt with the space bar and then x.
This is a standard windows key sequence to maximize the item in focus.

HI GUYS, I am experiencing me thinks a videeo issue.
When I try run a video stream from my Asus laptop system, it always loads in half screen mode. Is it possible the video settings might have something to do with it?.
It certainly seems like a setting is at fault somewhere in display settings.

Dear Richard & List:

Did your two TB Western Digital work on your Win 7 32-bit system previously?
It could be it is too large for your BIOS to recognize.

Subject: [TechTalk] WD 2 tb my book not being recognized

Hi folks.


Got this western digital two tb my book. It is about 5 years old now. Had it
sitting in a drawer for a couple years now. Took it out the other day to
make a backup of my system.

I am running win 7 pro on a 32-bit system. Got the book set up and nothing.
The drive is not being recognized. I tried about four different ports.
Two are 2.0, I have a 3.0 usb card in my system, and none will recognize the
drive. I have tried other things in the ports and those are working so ruled
the USB plugs out.

I was told there is a single white light on the front. I assume this is
telling me that there is power to it. I tried looking at WD site and could
not find anything to confirm the white light is showing power. In addition,
nothing helpful on why the system is not recognizing the HD.

Got any suggestions on what to try to get the computer to see the HD?

Thanks in advance.

Re: reposting unread in outlook 2016

Evidently, but I don't use the program and I don't know if that is the case, unread is something that can be moved as to where it appears.  The method of changing where it appears may be the same as changing where other header fields appear.  I don't recall which screen-reader you are using and this may be limited to NVDA, but there is an add on that let's you easily change the order of header fields.  Others may comment on that but I don't know enough about it to discuss it further.

When arrowing to an email when it’s not read, it’ll say unread followed by the info like the sender etc. Lately, I would arrow to the message then it says unread after it states the sender, subject etc.

Re: Hi Jack ing phone numbers

Timothy Mok
 

Hi,

This phone hijacking business is called spoofing. It is done by a lot of crime syndicates using VOIP technology. When I was working as a telephone operator at HSBC Bank, I fielded lots of calls from customers who complained that they received calls from HSBC or Bank Negara (that’s the central bank of Malaysia) asking customers to confirm their banking or credit card details. The only way these calls can be traced by the policing authorities is while the call is still on. These scams are a-plenty and unsuspecting customers have lost lots of money through them. I’ve tuned myself to be suspicious with all such calls purportedly coming from the bank or government authorities as bogus calls. Don’t entertain them.    The safest way is to find out the correct number of the agency that supposedly called you and call them to confirm the veracity of the call you received.

Tim.

Microsoft Asks Users to Call Windows 10 Devs About ALT+TAB Feature


By
Lawrence Abrams
 
 March 11, 2019

Microsoft has started to display notifications in the Windows 10 Action Center asking users to have a phone call with Microsoft developers and provide direct feedback about the ALT+TAB feature in Windows.

While using a Windows 10 Insider build today, I was shown a Feedback Hub notification stating that "Microsoft wants to hear your opinions! To set up a phone call with Windows engineers, go to: http://www.aka.ms/alttab". This link then redirects to a web page at https://ux.microsoft.com/?AltTab

 

It is not known if this is only being shown to Windows Insiders users at this time.

When users visit this link they will be shown a Microsoft User Research page stating that a Windows 10 product team is looking to "understand our customer
needs" and would like to have an anonymous 5-10 minute phone call with the user.

Microsoft User Research page for ALT+TAB Feature

In this particular case, the phone call will be with Microsoft engineers to discuss how users use the ALT+TAB feature to switch between apps. Microsoft
states they are performing these calls in order to get a better understanding of how a feature is being used while they are in development.

"Your feedback is important to us. As we develop new software and services, it’s critical that we get feedback from customers who use our products.

Hearing from you early in the development cycle helps us make changes to our products and test them before release.

Early customer interactions ensure we hit the mark with features. The time you spend with us today can improve our products for users around the world."

According to the web site, Windows engineers will be available on 3/11/2019 between 11:15 AM and 1:00 PM PST and on 3/12/2019 between 9:30 AM and 11:30
AM PST to schedule a call. The page goes on to say that users can expect a 5-10 minute call, but that it could last longer if there is more to discuss.
They also state that the calls are not being recorded, are anonymous, and the content of the call will not be stored.


When researching this notification, I ran into a
Reddit thread
 where a user received a similar notification over the weekend. Jen Gentleman, a Community Manager and Software Engineer at Microsoft, stated that these
notifications are a new program being piloted that gives engineers the ability to talk to users in real time about features they are working on.



This is not the first time that Microsoft has asked Windows 10 users to call engineers. In February 2019, Microsoft also asked used to contact them regarding
the Windows Update feature.

Re: Hi Jack ing phone numbers

 

Hi Howard,
If it is an iPhone you can simply go under your recent‘s tab under your phone app which should be the second tab from the left and go to one of the numbers and then swipe up once and it will say more info tap there and scroll all the way to the bottom where it should say block this caller and then it will alert you that you will not receive any calls or text messages from them then go ahead and hit block. If you have any other questions feel free to call me at 219-838-5076 or text me at 219-595-2123.

Re: Pac-mate,

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Interesting. I'm familiar with the device, although I haven't used it in over six years or so and I remember next to nothing about it. My guess, and I could be way off here, might be the network protocol the Pac Mate supports, such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc. I'm wondering if the router is using a newer protocol not supported by the Pac Mate. If the Pac Mate's network settings allow you to access and change protocols that's the first thing I'd try, although older protocols may not offer you the level of security found in newer ones.

Building an ecommerce site

Hi group,

 

I use primarily Jaws but also have NVDA, and I need a fully accessible way to build an ecommerce site. There are numerous possibilities but how can I tell if the process will be accessible before I sign up? I am attracted to those companies which have templates for the construction, hosting, built-in payment processing, add-ons, etc.

This is my first time doing this please forgive my newbie ignorance.

 

Thanks,

Norma

I have read comments that win 7 can be used safely after this time if some conditions are followed.I understand these to be;

What are antivirus and malware programs that will work with nvda in win 7?

Hi Monty,

I use JAWS16.0 and the latest version of NVDA interchangeably. However, my Avast! Internet Security  UI is mostly accessible with JAWS  but is incompatible with NVDA. Eversince I started using the PC in 2009, there have been accessibility issues with each upgrade of the Avast! Program UI. I’ve always felt secure with Avast! Till now and has stuck to it more out of brand loyalty. Super Anti-spyware is accessible with JAWS and NVDA.

Is it possible at all? Most of the messages I seen that are forwarded ones they don't show anything that I said, and I would like to know just how to do the same, as my forwarded messages always shows it all.

Second and last question, how I can BCC address when sending a message?
Also, anyone can explain which other options I have besides BCC?
