Highlight whichever archive file, and using your Applications key (Shift+F10), try hitting 7 which should take you right to 7Zip. Just tell 7Zip what to do, extract here… etc.

Subject: [TechTalk] 7zip in win 10

 

Hi List,

 

I’m using the current nvda and win10 1903.

I download and install 7zip; it is on the taskbar.

When I open the aps menu on a zipped   folder, neither 7zip or its submenu are in the available choices.

I know I need to do something to associate 7zip with zipped folders, I do not know how to do this.

In win xp, 7 and 8x this association happened automaticly with the 7zip installation.

I tried removing 7zip and reinstalling, but no joy.

Suggestions,\

Thanks,

Monte

Hi Monty,

If you have a 64 bit system, you _MUST_ use the  64 bit version of 7Zip for full functionality.  Uninstall the 32 bit and then install the 64 bit version.

Re: 7zip in win 10

John Dowling <1008jmd@...>
 

I think it usually depends on whether or not you downloaded the 32 or 64 bit version.
Unfortunately, I haven’t used windows in quite awhile, so my suggestion might be totally wrong, but try downloading the 64 bit version, and if that’s what you used, then try the 32 bit version if they even still have that available.
Thanks,
John.

Re: Locked screen

Hi Group:


Whenever I put my computer on sleep, it goes to lock screen.  When I hit the space bar to wake it up, it says lock screen and I just hit a key and I can type my password in.  Hope this helps.

JAWS scripts for Slack

Hi all,

Request you to let me know if there are any JAWS scripts for the Slack

Hi,

I have like 12 zip folders with contents inside.

Instead of one-by-one, extracting them all, can I do all of them at once?

Re: Win amp on windows 10

Steve Matzura
 

1. Open Winamp.

2. Press Control plus P to open the Preferences dialog.

3. Press S until you hear "Shell optins."

4. Press TAB until you reach the first checkbox, labeled "Add enqueue and play to Winamp's associated file types."

5. If this box is not checked, press the spacebar to check it.

6. Optionally, press TAB until you hear the checkbox called "Start Winamp playing if it is not already."

7. Checking this box will perform the action of playing the file chosen from File Explorer when you press ENTER (double-click) on that file.

8. Press Shift plus TAB until you find the Close button.

9. Press ENTER. This closes tWinamp's Preferences dialog.


NOTE: Depending on your user account control settings, the first change you make in thi dialog may cause the Windows User Account Control dialog to be displayed. If this happens, press Alt plus Y to acknowledge that you wish to make changes, then continue with Winamp maintenance as described above.

Re: Win amp on windows 10

Guessing based upon on how things are spelled within the subject field
anyway, you are actually talking about Winamp the media player (which is one
word) and you enqueueing additional files, folders etc within your playlist,
right?

Creating Playlists using Winamp or in this case, just enqueuer files and or
folders within Winamp for one to play.

This has already been answered, but for convenience just answering it again
(there are several different ways of doing most things on computers). This
process has worked with XP, 7, 8 and 10.

1. Open up Winamp.
2. Within the Winamp Playlist Editor tab we'll call it (Alt+E) which is
where you have all of your chosen tracks. To choose individual tracks to add
to this list, just highlight/select whatever tracks on your machine or other
drives that you are wanting to add to the playlist, use your applications
key (Shift+F10)
3. Then press E for Enqueue in Winamp (or just arrow down to it). Do this
with whatever tracks, albums, folders that have anything you are wanting to
add to the playlist that you are interested in creating.
4. After you have all that you selectively choose to have, simply press X
for play, but you do not need to wait before you have everything chosen to
begin playing whatever it is within your playlist. You can press play at
anytime, and add additional files and or folders at anytime as well.

Re: Echo Show Time Display

Hi Ron,
 
See if this is any better:
 
 

Open the settings by swiping down from the top of the screen, and then tapping the little gear icon. On the Echo Show, there’s a “Settings” label underneath
the icon.
 
From there, select “Home & Clock” option (Echo Dot) “Home Screen” option (Echo Show).
 
Toggle the “24-Hour Time” switch to enable it.
 
Your clock will now display the 24-hour format.
 
Everything else (like your wallpaper and theme) remains the same.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Strange phenomon with my Win 7 computer, no speech

JAWS, but same result, no speech. I have shut down and rebooted twice
with same situation. I have no clue what caused this, but I do have
audio, so it's something else. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

2. Type exactly what's below and press enter.

3. User Account Settings opens. You find the box before. Users must enter a username and password to use this computer is checked. Uncheck this and hit Apply.
4. Automatically sign in password prompts. Write in your Password twice and press OK and that should honestly take care of it.
