Help needed with SendSpace

Nancy Hill
 

Hi All, it has been  long enough since I have used SS that I have misplaced my info on how to get the downloads started when I want to use the SSWizard.


I have recently started using win10.


The info I need to use the SSWizard includes:


How do I download just 1 file?


How do I download a folder?


How do I download multiple files?


Your help will be greatly appreciated!


Thanks,

Nancy


Re: Bluetooth and google maps cane?

Patrick Ford
 

Haha good one …yeah, I had a feeling that it costs far too much …and it did not seem to make sense since smart phones are the way to go with maps and gps etc …and also, canes are disposable  and break easily ….

I just checked.  The cane costs $499.00.  I'll bump into something above chest level now and then and if I have a smart phone, I'll use it for the functions the cane gives you access to through your phone anyway.  Evidently, the idea is that the cane, allows you to work with your phone without you physically using your phone while walking.  This sounds like another ridiculously expensive product for what it does that doesn't begin to justify its price.

The name of the Came is wewalk. The Bluetooth is for locating your phone just by using a button on the cane itself.

Do you have a gmail/google account? If so, you can sign into youtube with

question on LibreOffice (Microsoft Office compatible suite)

Sugar Lopez
 

Hi all

I am going to purchase a lap top for my dad.

Before I do, I want to know if anyone knows about

•             LibreOffice (Microsoft Office compatible suite)

 

 

Does it have a e mail client?

Has anyone ever used it before?

He uses MSN for his e mails so I was wondering if it would work for him

Thanks

Here's a repost of my contribution on the subject-matter; I spotted
syntactical errors that needed correction!



Sis Margaret wrote in part:

"I'm an old dinosaur willing to make occasional forays into the 21st
century. Could someone please tell me what kiosk apps are? The last I knew
kiosks were small booths in a mall or parking lot."

If I dare say so, I'm worst than a dinosaur; but yes sister, you're right!
However, for that kiosk to function, there's an operating system that powers
the app it runs on. Windows cE5xx or 6xx are two examples of such OS's.
Credit card readers and scanners used in stores to process a typical
checkout all still run on Windows cE. But, Microsoft NO LONGER supports
this OS? For public consumption, YES! Behind the scenes for businesses
like Master/Visa/Discover cards and others, Microsoft still rakes in enough
pennies on the OS.

Ok, Android and iOS do read credit cards too; that's true, but, there aren't
that many scanners or PDC's--portable data collectors--powered by either
Android or iOS.

I'm sure you do know that kiosks ARE NOT accessible to the blind; well,
Vispero (or are they still Freedom Scientific?) could be changing that.
I'll scope out the general info an post it in this space. However, don't
expect wide range adoption for quite some time; a fight may necessarily go
through the courts before some kiosk operators will permit the installation
of Jaws to work with their apps.

Lastly, we still can't tear a dollar bill apart without the use of a talking
gadget. Hmm, we could have been a lot closer following the court order
several years back; notwithstanding, kiosk operators still oppose the use of
tactile markings on the dollar bill. Worst still, the Bureau of Printing &
Engraving
and the Department of Treasury are NOTORIOUSLY SLOW at coming up with
tactile designs that fit the bill. So, the waiting game continues, maybe we
can find a way to force their hands soon!

Hi Margaret,
 
A quick search says this:
 
Featured snippet from the web
Kiosk Apps are Chrome Apps that are designed to always run fullscreen using Single App Kiosk Mode on Chrome OS and do not allow the user to exit the app.
They're great for a purpose-built Chrome device, such as a guest registration desk, a library catalog station, or a point-of-sale system in a store.
Kiosk Apps - Google Chrome

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Tool for analyzing product reviews

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi Gene and list, Several months ago I found out about

 

https://www.fakespot.com

 

This is a site recommended by consumer advocate Clark Howard. It analyzes reviews from Amazon, Best Buy, Trip Advisor, Yelp and more. I encourage anyone who wants to get a more accurate picture of a product’s reviews to give it a try. HTH Norma

 


Re: Transferring apps from I phone to Android

Norma A. Boge
 

To my knowledge there is no way to do this. I've only used Android, so I didn't have to deal with this. But, there might be an Android app which matches the equivalent Google Play app to what you have on IOS. We'll have to see if someone else chimes in. But remember, you're dealing with 2 different operating systems. HTH Norma

If you look in the system tray, you will see an icon that tells you about the upload while it is in progress.  The real system tray icon, not that in the add-on, will automatically update.

Hi Monte. If you are downloading from dropbox using a link the file should go where all your other downloads go.
