You can run 32 bit Windows on a 64bit capable machine.  But the opposite isn't true.  You can't run 64 bit Windows on a 32 bit machine.

Hi, please excuse my ignorance regarding this subject, but is it possible to have a 64 bit operating system installed on a computer with a 32 bit mother/main board?  Or, are mainboards just multi-purpose in regards  to whether a 32 or 64 bit OS is being used on it?

I believe that it’s Linux and yes, you could pull out the micro SD card place it within a card reader if necessary and look at it entirely if you so selectively chose.

You could also purchase a new internal chip for the Second Generation Victor if desired. There will be hidden partitions within this data though.

Re: A Computer Weirdness that turned out Positive!

Maybe, maybe not.  If Goldwave has a setting that automatically stops recording, if it were me, I wouldn't use it.  While this may be rare, what if there is a technical difficulty which causes the audio to stop and then, resume after a pause long enough to cause Gold Wave to stop recording.  You will have missed the rest.  Perhaps you can set the time so this should never or almost never be a problem, such as to stop after two or three or five minutes of silence but when something is automated, the possible consequences need to be considered.

For a long time now, I have used Gold Wave to record and Edit stuff I
listen to from the Internet.   Sometimes those recordings can go for an
hour or more, up to 5 hours at times.


I have always had to manually stop the Recording when the Lecture ended,
but not any more.


No matter how long or short the video, when it ends, Gold Wave stops
recording, and then waits for me to do something.


There may be a Switch inside Gold Wave that allows this to happen all
the time, but up until the last couple of weeks, I've never found such a
switch.


Some how some way, if there is a Switch, it has gotten flipped, and I
have no idea how it happened.


But, at least this Weirdness turns out to be a Good one, instead of the

Hi Kerryn,
 
If you're running J2018 and up & Windows 10 and your screen is dark I believe you're referring to the Screen Shade feature.  Below are 2 ways of enabling / disabling.
 
1. Hold down the, Insert key, and press the,spacebar, to activate the layerd keystrokes feature, now press the, Print Screen key, and this will toggle Screen Shade on / off.
 
2. To check if the Screen Shade feature is on or off, go into the quick settings menu with, Insert + V, or Capslock + V. if you are using the laptop layout
 In the search field type, shade, and press enter.
Next, down arrow one time and JAWS should state whether Screen Shade is checked or nott.
 If it's checked pres the spacebar to uncheck / disable it, then tab to the, Okay button and press enter to save and close quick settings.

Re: Brand new to Mac, is Macbook Pro A1502 a good starter machine

When I first received my iPhone 7 Plus, a woman helped me set it up with all of the various apps. I asked her which operating system she preferred. She told me that she liked the windows operating system better than the Mac operating system because she thought windows was more flexible. But she also said that she thought the iPad Pro and its operating system was just as good as windows. Go figure! This just shows that every opinion is different. You know what they say about opinions. LOL
