Re: Facebook - Chrome vs Firefox

Shelly Kane
 

I just downloaded chrome last week and when I went to m.facebook.com, I had a lot of trouble.  Internet explorer was much better for me.  When I was using chrome, I thought I was searching when in fact, I was posting to my page.  It doesn't say the same things as IE.  It totally threw me off.  The whole format was different.  When I use IE, I can see search, then home, messages, my profile, and notifications.  When I used chrome, it wasn't like that at all.  Do you know if Firefox reads like IE?  I haven't used chrome since I had trouble navigating.

Hi,
Just now I was testing the m.facebook webpage with Chrome, which isn't my default browser, to see if I could reproduce a certain behavior.
Well, besides the fact that I couldn't reproduce what I was trying, I noticed that Chrome and Firefox behave very differently on the same webpage and thought that I'd ask it here.
Does anyone know why this happens and if is there a way of making Chrome shows the m.facebook site the same way as Firefox shows it?

Outlook.com Navigation Issues

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


I use outlook.com as one of my mail servers. I use Thunderbird to retrieve messages, so I seldom visit the site except for basic maintenance and security issues. I hadn't been there for a long time until today.  When I visited the site to check my Spam filter, I got a big surprise. The site is much different than when I visited it several months ago and is very difficult to navigate.


There are some shortcut keys I have seen on their help screen, but I don't know how to get to a list of the folders I have.  I couldn't find where the Spam folder was.


Does anyone have any tips and tricks as to how to use this site more efficiently?  Any help would be appreciated.

Here are instructions I found online.  But I'm not sure just how you apply them.  Someone else may send instructions that may be easier to apply, or with more information about how to perform the operations from the keyboard.
 
There is a lot of advertising on the page but the information is there.
 
but more important, is that you should be backing up all files you don't want to lose.  If you have a hard drive crash, using Shadow Copy, you will still lose all your files.  If your computer fails in another way, you may have to spend money repairing an old machine you would ordinarily replace just to get access to your files again.  Very likely, for less than the price of repairing the computer, you could buy a 4 TB external USB hard drive, if you need that much room.

When you tried previous versions, did you go farther up in the folder structure?  Try opening this computer, finding the c drive, and opening previous versions.  Do you see older versions of the c drive?  If so, you should find older versions of the downloades folder by opening a previous version of the drive, then finding the folder in that version.

Media Pontes Downloader Help

 

Hi,
So, where can I find a help file for this program?
I looked but apparently it hasn't one by default, and I'm having a hard time finding out how to manipulate its settings. I believe reading its help if there's something to read will save me a lot of time, and troubles :)

Thanks a lot.

Good morning Dave, how distressing! However, the cure is simple.

Open search with your Windows key, and type recycle.

This should open your recycle bin within which you can arrow to your
downloads folder which you had deleted. Press the applications key and
select restore.

If it's a large folder it may take some time to follow your actions.

How to Use Google Chrome Commands - Access Dozens of Chrome's Features and Settings

 

Google Chrome is highly customizable, allowing you to fine-tune the browser through hundreds of settings that affect virtually everything ranging from the application's appearance to its security-related features. While many of these tweaks can be made through the interface's graphical menu buttons and links, Chrome commands let you really get under the hood and take full control of your browser.
These commands, entered into Chrome's address bar (also known as the Omnibox), not only provide shortcuts to settings accessible through the browser menus but also access to advanced options which are only available via this method. Below are some of the most useful Chrome commands along with a brief description of each.
As always, it is best to use caution when modifying your browser's settings. If you are unsure about a particular component or feature, it may be best to leave it as is.

I see that this message tells you how to get into the feature I was discussing.  I hope system restore is on on your machine.  If it is, you will see previous versions.  If not, you won't. 
 
As I think about it, you don't have to check to see if System Restore is on.  You have to see if previous versions of the folder exist.

Re: accidental delete of downloads directory, need to restore, urgent!

Gene
 

The first question is whether system restore is operating on the machine.  If so, the machine is probably using a feature of system restore called Shadow Copy.  Shadow Copy makes copies of your files and folders as they were when the restore point was made.  I don't know if you work with it in the same way in Windows 10 as in earlier versions of Windows.  I almost never use it aned I'd have to look at how it is done in Windows 7 to describe the procedure.  It may well be the same, given my recollection of the interface concerning using Shadow Copy in Windows 7. But you don't run something called Shadow Copy. You use a feature called "previous versions."
 
Since I don't have Windows 10, I'll let others describe how to check to see if it is on.  After you find out, if it is on, I'll look at how to see and restore from Shadow Copy.  But just running a restore point probably won't restore the folder.  If you are using the downloads default folder, it probably isn't reverted as part of system restore.  You would probably have to use Shadow Copy for that. 
 
And that may be the same for other folders that aren't used as program and system and Windows folders.
 
Gene

Open search with your Windows key, and type recycle.

This should open your recycle bin within which you can arrow to your
downloads folder which you had deleted. Press the applications key and
select restore.

If it's a large folder it may take some time to follow your actions.

Good luck

Geoff

Subject: [TechTalk] accidental delete of downloads directory, need to
restore, urgent!

Hello,

I don't usually cross post, so please forgive this posting.

I need help quite urgently actually. I made a mistake and accidentally
deleted my download directory in my user profile, this is on a win10
pro 64 machine. The download folder was highlighted and I hit delete,
I wanted to delete another folder not downloads so I realized I was on
the wrong folder, hit tab to no or what I thought was no and hit
enter, as I did my machine shut down. It's having a heating problem
that I'm going to partially address today and fully address with a new
case. On reboot I found that download directory was gone. I need to
get it back. It's been quite a while since I've had to do this, help!

Any help appreciated.
Thanks.
Dave.

Good morning Dave, how distressing! However, the cure is simple.

Open search with your Windows key, and type recycle.

This should open your recycle bin within which you can arrow to your downloads folder which you had deleted. Press the applications key and select restore.

Good luck
