Problem fixing a Win 10 instalation

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

I have a PC that will not boot into windows, It tries to repair itself but is unsuccessful. I have windows 10 media DVD and have tried to upgrade from it but it tells me I have to boot into windows to upgrade. Is there any other way to upgrade? If not I may have to just install Windows 10 clean.

If you have more questions, just ask.

Yes, I did contact them by phone.  The agent told me that I could not get past the "put in your cell number" screen to see the rest of my account.  Does everyone in the world have a cell phone? Well, I'm not gonna give them mine.

Shuffle Mode on VLC

 

Hi guys,
So, anyone using VLC could please tell me how to enable this mode?
This button simply is nowhere to be found. So I'd love some help with it.

Many thanks.

Re: Windows10 and Email programs

Tree Mabry
 

I use NVDA, and have found Thunderbird to be the best option for my email needs. Outlook is another great choice, but for me, Outlook 2016 lags a bit for some reason. The only downside of Thunderbird, is that it's spell check is not as powerful as what you will find in the Microsoft Office apps. To get around this, I just use an Auto Hot key app I made that let's me spell check my emails in Microsoft Word.


It's been a while since I used the native Windows 10 mail app, so I can't really remember all of the reasons it did not work for me. I believe the main issue was that it did not offer the option for me to merge all of the inboxes of my various email accounts; of course, I may be remembering that wrong, please someone correct me if I'm mistaken. Either way, if you only have one email account that kind of inbox management would not be an issue for you.


Good luck,

Re: PayPal Account

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

Thanks Bill, but when I did that, it actually took it and then it said they would send an access code to that number that I would need to log in.  Well, even if I would put in my cell number, I don't take text messages; so I wouldn't get the access code anyway.  Sure hate to give up my PayPal account.  I've had it for almost twenty years and it's quite a convenience.

You have to go to the site and finish setting up your account.  I haven't done it for a long time but if needed, I can tell you how to get to the right place after I look around.

Hi List.  I would like to use the “Mute this topic” on some of the subjects that do not interest me. 

 

However, it not only asks me for my email, but also for my password, which in all the cases that I know about, I did not set up.

 

How therefore, can I successfully do this?

 

Any advice will be gratefully received!

Hi Marcio, thank you for suggesting thunderbird. I'm quite used to outlook but I'm always willing to experiment with different programs. I'll let you know if I have any questions.

Diana,

I can't say to the accessibility of Outlook, though many people are using it, that's for sure. So this should say something by itself.
I've never used Windows Mail so I can't say anything about it either.
Now, what I can tell about is Thunderbird. This is my favorite, best email client ever and I'm using it right now.
It's fully accessible and updated just today.
Plus, I run a list at groups.io for Thunderbird users. If you wish to give Thunderbird a try, maybe you will want to join us as well.
The details for the list are on my signature but if you need some assistance joining us, please let me know.

This is a neat solution, one I had't thought about so far, by the way :) Which made me think, now, that you don't need to make 2 replies or whatever to that effect. Since you've already copied the address, just paste it into the "to" field and edit it directly there :)
