Re: how do you delete a station from your favorites list in Tapin radio 8.2?

Gene
 

Open favorites, then down arrow to edit favorites and press enter.  Find the favorite you want then tab to delete.  I didn't go farther so you can try it and if you have any problems ask here.

I would have to agree with you. At one time I wrote RFP's (request
for proposals) for a pc hardware distributer, so I've read my fair
share of white papers and tech sheets. So in my opinion both of those
laptops were designed with multimedia in mind, mainly video playback.
The emphasis on a high performance i7 CPU with a6m cache was the first
clue. Large onboard cache is great for streaming large chunks of
video data, but it's a performance killer when executing small bursts
of instructions for applications. The cache has to fill and clear each
time. The second is exactly what you pointed out, the 5400 rpm hard
drive. The emphasis is on data storage, not performance. When your
searching for a new PC, decide what's most important to you. What will
you be doing with this new pc? Answer that and you can put your money
in the right places.

Hello Heather:



I finally read the specs to both laptops. They are essentially the same
except for color me thinks.



The price point is not where I want to be: I won't shell out $899.99 for a
laptop whether or not that charge goes on a personal or business credit
card, or even a store card that gives me 6 months interest free. For me,
both are too pricey, used or brand-new. But of course, it all depends on
what you intend to do with your laptop.



For a 1TB drive, I had expected that at least one or both of them will be a
72RPM; no, they are both 54RPM which is the standard, but I think for the
price, HP could have included a 72RPM drive in both.



I did read the reviews; however, I try not to judge a book by its cover.
In
other words, I try not to rely much too much on reviews. Sometimes,
especially on Amazon, reviewers are paid for the work they do. As such,
some reviewers may write the nicest thing you ever want to read.



If it is possible, visit a computer store near you, see if you can find any
of the two models and play with it to your heart's content before making a
decision.



Well, that's about all I can come up with; perhaps others will take a
harder
and better look and post their comments and suggestions in this space so I
can hopefully learn about something I may have ignored. Good luck in your
search for a laptop!



Sincerely,

Olusegun

Re: What are the advantages of W10 over W7?

If you have a computer that still works well with Windows 7, it might pay to wait awhile to buy a new one with Windows 10.  That’s because computers with solid-state drives are becoming less expensive, and in a few years, maybe even before 2020, SSD’s may become cheap and reliable enough to completely replace mechanical hard drives, much as flat panel LED displays and TV’s rapidly replaced bulky CRT models.

Gene, great answer here. My computer is about six months old, so I guess I’ll upgrade, but I will wait awhile till FS can support the Edge browser, and I guess the operating system still  has bugs to work out, but it really doesn’t sound like any great shakes of an operating system, maybe a little better than 7, and much better than this 8.1 that I now have and don’t like.

Re: window eyes and windows media player

Gene
 

Here is an update to this thread.  The thread hasn't been active for many days but I just happened to test Media Player with Window-eyes again.  The last time I tested it, it appeared that the bypass command didn't work when using the fast forward command.  Testing it again now does allow the fast forward command to work.  I don't know why it didn't before, but it appears that the bypass command should work.  See the quoted message below to see how to use it with the fast forward command.

For now, try the bypass command.  It is insert b.  You can use either insert.  After issuing that command, the next command goes directly to the application.  You should be able to make the fast forward command function in that way. 
Issue the bypass command and then control shift f to start fast forward.  Issue the bypass command and then control shift f to stop fast forward.
 
Someone who knows more about Window-eyes may be able to tell you how to change settings in a set file so you don't have to issue the bypass command but for now, that command will allow you to use the command.
 
The Media Player fast forward command is actually a very slow fast forward.  Do you know about the other ways to jump forward and backward in a file?  I never use the fast forward command you are using because it is so slow.

There should be a set file already.  But the solution may be very easy and not require anything other than issuing one command.  Try issuing the command control shift a to turn off browse mode.  Something is very likely making browse mode come up.  After you turn browse mode off, the fast forward command should work.  If you still have problems such as if browse mode comes on repeatedly when you are in the player, we can discuss how to turn it off and have it stay off while you are in the player.
 
Control shift a is a toggle.  You can toggle browse mode off or on if you want it on.

Re: del key does not delete in outlook express

Are you saying you don't keep messages in the deleted messages folder?  If you let a lot of messages build up in that folder, it may become corrupted.  It's important in Outlook express not to let a lot of messages build up in the inbox but it's not a good idea to let a lot of messages build up in other folders either.

The deleted messages dbx file is probably corrupted.  Until you correct the problem, you can delete mail by pressing shift delete if that is the problem.  If you have messages you don't want to lose from the corrupted deleted messages folder, save them outside of the program using save as.  Then delete the dbx folder when Outlook Express isn't running.  Or if you have so many messages you want to keep that saving them using save as isn't practical, copy the deleted messages dbx file somewhere else before deleting it from Outlook Express.  You can then read the messages in the file using a utility to read what is in the file.  I don't use such a utility so others can discuss it, if you want more information.
 
The next time you run Outlook Express, a new deleted messages dbx folder will be created. 
I can give instructions concerning how to find and delete the dbx file but someone else may already have such instructions that they have gotten from somewhere.  It would be enough work to write instructions that I'll wait to see what others present.  Until then, using shift delete to delete messages you don't want to keep will probably allow you to delete them.
 
Don't let lots of mail accumulate in Outlook Express.  Save messages you want to keep outside of the program.  Outlook Express is notorious for having corrupted dbx files in large part caused by people keeping lots of mail in the program.

Subject: [TechTalk] del key does not delete in outlook express

Hello list
For ages I pressed the del key to delet emails but now the del key does not do anything. I tested it in notepad and it does work. Can someone suggest a solution? It is a windows7 pc with jaws 17.

Hello Gene
Thanks for the info. I always delete all messages, so I do never have more than about 200 messages in the inbox. Thanks, shift-del works although I have to tab to the "yes" button but at least its a temporary solution.
Regards
Fanus

The deleted messages dbx file is probably corrupted.  Until you correct the problem, you can delete mail by pressing shift delete if that is the problem.  If you have messages you don't want to lose from the corrupted deleted messages folder, save them outside of the program using save as.  Then delete the dbx folder when Outlook Express isn't running.  Or if you have so many messages you want to keep that saving them using save as isn't practical, copy the deleted messages dbx file somewhere else before deleting it from Outlook Express.  You can then read the messages in the file using a utility to read what is in the file.  I don't use such a utility so others can discuss it, if you want more information.
 
The next time you run Outlook Express, a new deleted messages dbx folder will be created. 
I can give instructions concerning how to find and delete the dbx file but someone else may already have such instructions that they have gotten from somewhere.  It would be enough work to write instructions that I'll wait to see what others present.  Until then, using shift delete to delete messages you don't want to keep will probably allow you to delete them.
 
Don't let lots of mail accumulate in Outlook Express.  Save messages you want to keep outside of the program.  Outlook Express is notorious for having corrupted dbx files in large part caused by people keeping lots of mail in the program.
