Re: Dear Friends, Thanks so much,I Only saw 1 Programs Folder, but also a Programs Data Folder,

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi Alan,
Actually, the fact that you have one program files folder suggests that you have a 32-bit version of Windows installed. But that can work on either a 32 or 64 bit machine. So it depends whether you want to know if your Windows is 32 or 64-bit (to find out whether you should install 32 or 64-bit software), or whether your machine is 32 or 64 bit (to work out what versions of an operating system you can install if you want to upgrade or whatever).
Cheers,
Damien.

There's only one thing that I see that is incorrect below, and that is if you are using a 32bit machine, there will be a Program Files (x86) folder which is not true. If you are using a 32bit machine, it will only have a Program Files directory and not the Program Files (x86) directory.

It's when one is using a 64bit machine, it will have both of these above directories.

I am sure there are more than one way to tell if your System is a 64 bit
or 32 bit, but here's how I find out.


I look on the C: Drive, at the folders.  If you have One folder that is
named PROGRAM FILES, and another called, PROGRAM FILES X86, then you
have a 64 bit System.


If you do not have a folder named PROGRAM FILES, but only have the one
named PROGRAM FILES X86, then this would be a 32 bit System.


When installing software, if the software getting installed is a 32 bit
program, it will be installed into the PROGRAM FILES X86 folder.  If it

FILES folder.

Re: songs out of order when I sinc with itunes

Jaffar Sidek
 

Josh.  I can tell you that ITunes is a very fussy piece of software.  You need to tag your files propperly.  Here's a rough guide.

Title: Name of show

Artist, perhaps the star actor

Album: name of program.

Track, episode number.

You can then play your files in order because ITunes builds it's library on your tag info.  Cheers!

Not everyone using Ccleaner is using it for cleaning the registry. There are other tools, such as the one used to maintain cookies. If there’s a better program to do that with, I’m all ears.

The whole concept of programs like CCleaner is so unnecessary now because the operating system, not to mention hardware, is so much faster, the time and space saved by running Registry cleaners makes very little, if any, difference any more. Even Microsoft disrecommends these kinds of programs. Registry cleaners usually cause more troubles than they fix.

Hi,
There are actually two programs for retrieving system information.

1. system info (systeminfo.exe)
This seems to be a console-driven program, so you would need to know how to use and navigate command prompt or similar in order to work it and read the reams of information it spits out at you. Luckily, there is a GUI version.

2. System information (msinfo32.exe)
This pretty much gives you the same information as the command line version above. Make sure "system summary" is highlighted on the treeview, then tab past to the list.
Even then though, it looks like that only tells you whether your machine is 32 or 64-bit, not the operating system. My machine, for instance, says: "System Type; x64-based PC". Of course, I could be wrong, I don't have a 32-bit version of Windows to compare with, but that does suggest hardware configuration to me.

Another way to do it is, if you go to "system" in the control panel, that gives you both software and hardware bit count, but you need to virtualise the window with your screen reader (in NVDA you'll need the Virtual Review addon), as you can't use standard navigation to get that information.

Personally, I think the best way to check is the "program files/program files (x86)" method. Much quicker and less painful.
Cheers,
Damien.

Yo Bro,
 
The easiest way:
1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue.
2. Type, C:, and press enter.  That is a capitol, C, and a colon
3. Press the letter, P, until you hear, Program Files, and press the letter, P, again and if you hear, Program Files (x86), this means you are running a 64 bit computer.
Note: A 32 bit computer will only have 1 Program Files folder on the root of the C drive.  With a 64 bit computer the 64 bit programs go into the Program Files folder and the 32 bit programs go into the Program Files (x86) folder.

Re: copying an entire codepen?

Hi Dave,
 
If you're using Jaws, try the following:
1. Mark the beginning spot with the keystroke, Control, Windows key + K, to set a temporary placemark.
2. Go to the end of whatever you want to copy and hold down the Insert / Jaws key and press the spacebar to open the layered keystrokes feature, and press the letter, M, and this will select between the temporary placemarker and your current position.
3. Now press, Control + C, to copy and now paste it wherever you want.
Hope this works for you because I use this feature a lot and it works really cool.

new dropbox rules

De: Shaun Everiss <sm.everiss@gmail.com>

Hi all.

This is a small warning to everyone that uses dropbox.

From march this year, all basic accounts are limited to 3 devices.

What does that mean?

Nothing, except that dropbox remembers every device and session ever made.

So you reformat your computer or change your account name, or get another computer and don't unlink first, your device becomes a ghost device same with app programs, and brouser sessions.

1. sign into dropbox.

The easiest way to do this is to login with your own client, click the tray icon and launch dropbox.

Now near the top of the page is a menu called my account hit space on that, scroll down to settings, hit shift space to exit forms mode then hit enter.

Don't move about else things will just not work right.

Now dropbox settings load.

hit control home for the top of the page then h.

2. select security tab, in the same way, enter forms mode once you scroll down to the list of tabs, and locate security.

get out of forms mode and hit enter.

Next control home again.

then hit t.

3. The next thing to do is locate every session in the first table which has an end session button it and hit the space bar till they are all gone.

Next locate the device tree which is directly below the brouser treeview.

The first device in the list is your device.

scroll to the end of that list.

Every device you have ever linked including every ghost device linked in the past will exist, I had 6, my dad had 2.

Hit unlink button on all the devices bar the one that says its been modified in the last hour.

Every other device will have a time when it was last valid.

Finally go through the steps of going to my account, then settingss however next select the connected apps view.

Then disconnect every app you don't use and service.

If you need to link devices take note of the devices you want to connect.

A basic user can connect up to 3 devices.

Those can be a computer, a phone and one other device or 3 computers.

You can buy, but to be honest, if you get this warning and are only using 1 device, then you probably have a lot of ghost devices.

I'd also update your password at this time if you have forgotten it if you haven't already.

Speed (up to 3Gbps) | Coverage for Small-to-Medium Homes | 4 x 1G
Ethernet and 1 x 3.0 USB Ports
4.2 out of 5 stars 12,799
$192.14
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Netgear+Nighthawk&i=electronics&rh=n%3A172282%2Cn%3A300189%2Cp_89%3ANETGEAR%2Cp_36%3A1253506011&dc&qid=1570814066&rnid=386442011&ref=sr_nr_p_36_4

It says that it is for small and medium sized houses. This fits me to a
T. I am wondering, just to be sure of a few things. It says that there
is an iPhone app for this router. I checked for the app store and indeed
there is. I downloaded it just to check on accessibility. It seems
accessible, but of course without the router, you can't get very far, it
asks for a user name and password and that's where you have to stop
without the hardware.

I want to be sure if anyone else has checked this app out and if the
whole app is indeed accessible? I also want to be sure that this model
has both wired and wireless capability. I believe it say that it has up
to 4 wired slots. Is this true? I am very inexperienced with the
specifications for routers in general and thus must be sure of this
before I purchase.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Laptop Battery Use

Smiling?
 

Li-Ion (Lithium Ion) which is what type of battery I'm sure is within this laptop, is best never completely drained nor completely charged to 100% and keep in mind, this is what professionals are saying and have been saying for several years about Lithium-Ion batteries not just myself.

One of the best articles I've read on this particular issue regarding Li-Ion batteries, was not to completely charge these types of batteries to 100% and, try to not allow it to go below 40%. Definitely never try to allow to completely and fully drain either. With Lithium-Ion batteries, I guess the hardest things is either charging all the way up to 100% or allow the battery to completely discharge to 0%, just not at all good for these types of batteries.

They would typically say try and keep your Li-Ipon batteries between 40% to 80% and this is many professionals opinions regarding this matter, but by all means continue to do whatever it is that you do (which is what most of us do anyways).

Everyone,


Recently I got a new computer. It is one of those models that it seems
like 'everything' is soldered to the motherboard. I would appreciate
knowledge/advice concerning how to make the best use of my battery to
preserve it's life as long as possible.


To me, it seems like there are only 2 options. Run the laptop plugged
directly into a wall outlet all the time, or run the laptop only off
battery power. until it is totally discharged

and then use it plugged in until the battery is charged again...then
switch back to Battery power.


I just would like to power the machine in the way that would be best for it.


Help Please and many thanks in advance.


Nancy


Re: android or chrome os on a desktop?

Chris G <chris@...>
 

You can search on Amazon for Chrome box and see what you come up with.
Also you might try contacting Best Buy to see if they have any in your
area.

Not sure on your second question.

Hi Simon,

You can get Chrome OS on a desktop, they call them Chrome Box.

chromeVox not to be confused with Chrome Box is the screen reader.
Depending on what you want to do with Chrome OS, it works well.

Plus you can install and run supported Android apps.

hello all,
am currently running win7 on my desktop machine, but seemingly support for
this is going to end this coming january.
not only do I not really want windows 10, as I have just heard so many
stories of access issues with it, especially when it comes to those pesky
ribbon menus, but as my current screenreader is window-eyes, that
seemingly won't work with it as well.
so if I have got to change both my os and screenreader, rather than the
win10 rout, I wondered if there is any sort of android desktop machine?
as at least having used that on my samsung phone, if there is, I thought
that may be a better rout to go.
if that's not possible, another option that I am considering, is something
like chrome os, again, if I can find that on a desktop machine, so am
wondering if anyone has had any experience of this with it's screenreader,
and range of apps?
as I have heard a few good things about this, but don't really know that
much about it.

Simon

copying an entire codepen?

David Mehler
 

Hello,

I am trying to look for a method to copy an entire codepen. Has anyone
done this? I've tried selecting the individual areas but no such luck.

Thanks.
Dave.
