Creating Playlists using Winamp

 

There are simple ways of creating playlist files (.M3U, .PLS, etc.) within Winamp alone (without having to install anything extra) and here are the directions below:

 

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), but the Winamp Playlist Editor tab (Alt+E) does not actually need to be open for all of this to work.

3. Then press E for Enqueue in Winamp. 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. When finished adding all you desire to add, go to the Winamp Playlist Editor tab like before (probably only needing to Control+Tab to it if focus is not already there) You can arrow up and down to check out what you've placed within the playlist use the keystroke Control+S to save the playlist you've put together. Name and save it wherever you prefer. It can be moved anywhere on the machine, it's just the files within this playlist you've put together can't be moved for them to continue to work with the playlist itself.

Subject: [TechTalk] Listing the contents of a CD or DVD

When I insert a disk into the CD/DVD drive, Windows 10 either runs an associated program or (if one exists on the disk) starts the install program. I'd just like to open and read what's in the directory. Is there a setting to change to make that happen.

Thanks, anyone.

So strange. But try this windows i and type default and it will get you to your default programs. So find webbrowser, and select brave. So you can go to the run box and type in a site and windows should use brave. And not sure why the short cut does not do this. so delete that short cut and go to your shell apps folder and put brave on it by send the shortcut to the desktop. cheers Heather

Hi Gene and All,
Ok, I finally downloaded the Brave Browser, and I restarted my computer, and then I had an update from JAWS, and had to restart again, so, I finally got to try to use Brave. I do have the Brave icon on my desktop, but when I enter on Brave, it seems to take me to my download folder as that is where I download files to, instead of Brave connecting to my internet. How can I get Brave to connect to my internet, so if I want to browse the internet? I can't find where to tell Brave where to download my files either. Any suggestions?

Thank you.
Janet

If all you want to do is browse and not modify other behavior, that's it.
You may want to change the download location of files or cause the ask where
to save files dialog to come up when you save a file. I'd have to look to
see where those settings are if you have problems finding them.

But if you generally don't change settings in browsers, there is nothing you
need to change in Brave.

I'm sorry for my late reply, as I was called away from my PC as soon as I
sent the message out to the list, but I am back now. I thank all those who
might have sent me a reply. Gene, I just downloaded the Brave Browser, and
I am currently in the settings options, and I did select the option to make
Brave Browser as my default. Do I need to select any other settings while
I'm in the settings options?
Thank you all for any help in this.

Browsing is browsing with any browser that supports the virtual pc cursor or
browse mode, whatever your screen-reader calls it. Firefox, Chrome, and The
Brave browser all support The Virtual PC Cursor or Browse mode. that's the
same thing that you have been using in Internet Explorer. Its unfortunate
that so many people have needless fear and use an increasingly oudated
browser. Use control l instead of control o to move to the address bar,
where you type an address.
Book marks are gotten to a little differently than in Internet Explorer.
I'll send more information about an easy way to work with them in another
message. I sent such a message earlier to another list. Others will, I
hope, tell you more about im;portting book marks. but with either browser,
you will see that navigating web pages is just about identical to doing so
in Internet Explorer. A page may display something a little differently,
for example, a button or link may show different words. On one site I've
worked with to upload files, the button may say something like browse with
one browser and select a file with another browser. Sometimes, different
browsers see different parts of code on web pages.

As far as which browser to use between the Brave browser and Google Chrome,
if you want to use a browser that takes what I consider an ethical stance
towards advertisements on web sites, the Brave browser does. I'll provide a
link to the page where you can read about it and download it.

Aside from its policies on advertising by web sites, the browser itself is
very similar to the Chrome browser, it is based on Chrome.

You will get faster loading of web sites because a lot of commercials are
blocked and its safer because, at times advertising is hacked and hackers
try to download malware through hacked advertising.

Hi Everyone,
I have been having a problem trying to get to any web site do to my IE
browser, so I am finally getting around to it. I can't access half of the
web sites I want to. I have received many messages when I try to get to a
web site, I keep getting the message saying I need to update my browser, or
a message telling me I am using an outdated browser. I am using the latest
IE as my browser along with Windows 7. I have this same problem regardless
which web site I go to. Can someone tell me a little about Brave and Chrome
browsers, as I have always just used IE, but now, IE is almost disabled!
Can someone also please give me a web site to download either browser, as I
am in need for a update browser as soon as possible. Is either of these
browsers difficult to be configured, if so, can someone please tell me what
I need to do?

Thank you all in advance.

But if someone is getting a separate Windows 10 machine, I disagree that you should upgrade the Windows 7 machine unless you intend to use it regularly.
If you intend to keep it as a backup machine, I think Windows 7 should be kept on it. Microsoft has had enough problems with its full upgrades recently that I want a system that is reliable and that won't be upgraded if I have to use it as a backup. Assumedly, using it as a backup would be for short periods if something goes wrong with the Windows 10 machine.

As far as I know, default app setting on Windows 7 works as it always did, and it's way less strict about checking changes when programs try to make them, which has caused enough problems that things were tightened up later.

I would strongly encourage you to do a no-cost in-place upgrade to Windows 10 at your earliest possible convenience, after having backed up your system first. These instructions apply to an in-place upgrade, too, and I mention that in the instructions themselves: Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

I’m  no techy,  but that 500 watt power supply  is probably using very little power most of the time.

 

ON the other hand, my side by side fridge freezer probably  uses the most power  of all items in my condo.  Sometimes when I walk in front of the fridge in my bare feet, the floor is nicely warm.

As I do not have a  tv, the only other things in my home that use much power is the dryer, and oven.

P S,  I’m in a condo so  heat and hot water are provided centrally.

I found something interesting in Thunderbird. One way to send a message to the sender is the following:
Open the message.
Tab once.
Start shift tabbing. After a number of shift tabs, you will get to the name and address of the sender.
Open the context menu. One of the items is copy name and address to the clipboard.

This has nothing to do with Microsoft. The way groups.io sends out
messages, by design, is such that the reply-to address is for the group.
You would never want the sender's address to be the default on a mailing
list, or traffic would end up being diverted off-list almost constantly.
If you show the entire original message you can find the original sender's
address, but it's not in Reply-To.

This isn't limited to groups.io groups, either. Freelists.org and others
use precisely the same mechanism. Replies using reply or reply all

David,

           Thanks.  I'm aware of the "tips and tricks" of digging into email headers, but haven't had to use them in years, as I participate through the Groups.io web interface.  The Private button beneath the web compose window is still present, and still functions.

            The reason I brought up the absence of the usual "Reply to Sender" option that appears at the bottom of all other group messages I receive, if I turn e-mail delivery on temporarily, is that it is Groups.io's mechanism for making that digging unnecessary.  Once activated, with a few exception cases like one reported here earlier, it almost always fires up your email and prepopulates the To and Subject fields.  Easy peasy.  And you can edit the Subject if you want something else.

I see you sent the same information I did except for this one thing. What happens when you just shift tab, not tab once, then shift tab?
. I found while experimenting a little while ago, that unless I tab once first before shift tabbing. I am sent to the bottom of the message and I move backwards by llink. If I tab once before shift tabbing this doesn't happen.

When I wanted to reply to the sender of a Groups.io message in Thunderbird I would shift-tab into the message headers until focus moves to the sender's email address. Next, I would press the Applications key and an option for composing mail to that sender appears in the menu.

What's even more interesting, to me anyway, is that the From: field on every blessed one of these messages contains the actual e-mail address of its sender. So Thunderbird is honoring the Reply-To in the message header. I can't get it to place the sender's address in the To on a reply for love nor money, and CTRL+R certainly doesn't put it there.

I don't know why it does that. Try using the start menu search, find Brave, open it and see what happens. It sounds to me as though the short cut is leading to the wrong place.

Hi Gene and All,
Ok, I finally downloaded the Brave Browser, and I restarted my computer, and then I had an update from JAWS, and had to restart again, so, I finally got to try to use Brave. I do have the Brave icon on my desktop, but when I enter on Brave, it seems to take me to my download folder as that is where I download files to, instead of Brave connecting to my internet. How can I get Brave to connect to my internet, so if I want to browse the internet? I can't find where to tell Brave where to download my files either. Any suggestions?

Thank you.
Janet

If all you want to do is browse and not modify other behavior, that's it.
You may want to change the download location of files or cause the ask where
to save files dialog to come up when you save a file. I'd have to look to
see where those settings are if you have problems finding them.

But if you generally don't change settings in browsers, there is nothing you
need to change in Brave.

Hi Gene and All,
I'm sorry for my late reply, as I was called away from my PC as soon as I
sent the message out to the list, but I am back now. I thank all those who
might have sent me a reply. Gene, I just downloaded the Brave Browser, and
I am currently in the settings options, and I did select the option to make
Brave Browser as my default. Do I need to select any other settings while
I'm in the settings options?
Thank you all for any help in this.

Browsing is browsing with any browser that supports the virtual pc cursor or
browse mode, whatever your screen-reader calls it. Firefox, Chrome, and The
Brave browser all support The Virtual PC Cursor or Browse mode. that's the
same thing that you have been using in Internet Explorer. Its unfortunate
that so many people have needless fear and use an increasingly oudated
browser. Use control l instead of control o to move to the address bar,
where you type an address.
Book marks are gotten to a little differently than in Internet Explorer.
I'll send more information about an easy way to work with them in another
message. I sent such a message earlier to another list. Others will, I
hope, tell you more about im;portting book marks. but with either browser,
you will see that navigating web pages is just about identical to doing so
in Internet Explorer. A page may display something a little differently,
for example, a button or link may show different words. On one site I've
worked with to upload files, the button may say something like browse with
one browser and select a file with another browser. Sometimes, different
browsers see different parts of code on web pages.

As far as which browser to use between the Brave browser and Google Chrome,
if you want to use a browser that takes what I consider an ethical stance
towards advertisements on web sites, the Brave browser does. I'll provide a
link to the page where you can read about it and download it.

Aside from its policies on advertising by web sites, the browser itself is
very similar to the Chrome browser, it is based on Chrome.

You will get faster loading of web sites because a lot of commercials are
blocked and its safer because, at times advertising is hacked and hackers
try to download malware through hacked advertising.

Hi Everyone,
I have been having a problem trying to get to any web site do to my IE
browser, so I am finally getting around to it. I can't access half of the
web sites I want to. I have received many messages when I try to get to a
web site, I keep getting the message saying I need to update my browser, or
a message telling me I am using an outdated browser. I am using the latest
IE as my browser along with Windows 7. I have this same problem regardless
which web site I go to. Can someone tell me a little about Brave and Chrome
browsers, as I have always just used IE, but now, IE is almost disabled!
Can someone also please give me a web site to download either browser, as I
am in need for a update browser as soon as possible. Is either of these
browsers difficult to be configured, if so, can someone please tell me what
I need to do?

Thank you all in advance.
Janet
Peace Be With You.

I can't tell you how to make Brave open normally since I've never seen it open abnormally.  I'd suggest nuking that desktop icon and putting a new one on the desktop via the method of your choosing.

In Brave Settings, invoked via ALT+F,S, you need to navigate to the Downloads part of Advanced settings and tweak download location, and whether you're asked each time you download or not, there.

There very likely is. But until you find one, see if holding the left shift down when you close the door and for ;perhaps twenty seconds stops this behavior. It used to but I haven't tried it in newer versions of Windows.

Re: Question: How to Reply To the Original Sender Of a Groups.io Message Using Outlook 365

Gene
 

It would be interesting to see if others, still using 68.x have the same behavior as I do

I found something interesting in Thunderbird. One way to send a message to the sender is the following:
Open the message.
Tab once.
Start shift tabbing. After a number of shift tabs, you will get to the name and address of the sender.
Open the context menu. One of the items is copy name and address to the clipboard.
Press enter. Now, start a new message and paste the name and address into the clipboard. That method is faster than the one I discussed before. It isn't that efficient, but it isn't bad.

Well, I guess i was wrong on that again, i'll shut up and go hide in my little whole again. :smile:

TB does indeed have the reply to sender option but it inserts the list address. For some reason i thought earlier that it worked as i said it did. It should be possible to make it do so by using the correct email headers but that's a groups.io issue and not ms.

Just for the record, i still think ms should quit making email clients.




Thanks.

This has nothing to do with Microsoft. The way groups.io sends out messages, by design, is such that the reply-to address is for the group. You would never want the sender's address to be the default on a mailing list, or traffic would end up being diverted off-list almost constantly. If you show the entire original message you can find the original sender's address, but it's not in Reply-To.

This isn't limited to groups.io groups, either. Freelists.org and others use precisely the same mechanism. Replies using reply or reply all generally default to list, not sender.

Hi All,
I do intend to buy a new Windows 10 laptop. I don't intend on keeping my Windows 7 when I finally get my new Windows 10 laptop for very long, maybe I might keep Windows 7 just until I get used to Windows 10, in which I am hoping that will not take very long.
Good advice from Brian and Gene though.

But if someone is getting a separate Windows 10 machine, I disagree that you
should upgrade the Windows 7 machine unless you intend to use it regularly.
If you intend to keep it as a backup machine, I think Windows 7 should be
kept on it. Microsoft has had enough problems with its full upgrades
recently that I want a system that is reliable and that won't be upgraded if
I have to use it as a backup. Assumedly, using it as a backup would be for
short periods if something goes wrong with the Windows 10 machine.

I wouldn't use it in circumstances where I have to give personal
information.

Janet,

As far as I know, default app setting on Windows 7 works as it
always did, and it's way less strict about checking changes when programs
try to make them, which has caused enough problems that things were
tightened up later.

I would strongly encourage you to do a no-cost in-place upgrade
to Windows 10 at your earliest possible convenience, after having backed up
your system first. These instructions apply to an in-place upgrade, too,
and I mention that in the instructions themselves: Doing a Windows 10
Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file
