Re: Changing Browsers

Hi Nancy,
 
The Homepage is what you might have in IE11 when you open the browser, Google, for example.  The homepage and the search engine are 2 different things.  So, you could have Google as your homepage and your search engine  could be Duckduckgo or Bing.
 
Your desktop is exactly that, just like Windows 7, although the desktop with Windows 10 has more functionality, so to speak, because of its flexibility to have multiple desktops.

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

The desktop is a part of Windows where you can have shortcuts to open various programs, The home page is the page your browser opens when you open the browser in some way so you aren't opening another page. If you just find the name of the browser on the desktop and press enter, you are opening the program by itself or if you open it from the start menu you are opening it and not telling it to go to a certain page.

If you follow a shortcut to a certain web page you put on the desktop, You are telling the program to open using the page you saved a short cut to. But if you open the program by itself, it will open some page or other, and that is the home page.

Re: Changing Browsers

Nancy,

          Your desktop is your desktop, and your home page is something that's only applicable in a web browser.  Many of us don't even use home pages anymore.

          I can't recall at the moment what browser you've settled on instead of IE, but I seem to recall it's a Chromium based one.  The easiest thing to do is to open browser settings [ALT+F,S] then use the settings search and look for Home.  This should get you the "Show home button" option, which is toggled off by default.  If you then toggle it on you'll be presented with the options for showing a new tab page, setting a single home page, or anything else if a given browser has it.  Generally most have those two.

The need for keyboard shortcuts for constrained drag and drop . . .

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

I am well aware of screen reader "emulated" drag and drop and am also all too well aware of how frequently it simply does not do the job as expected.  As of a few minutes ago, I got frustrated enough with the fact that these don't exist, in Windows itself, that I went to the Feedback Hub to make a formal suggestion.

That suggestion documents the need for keyboard shortcuts that allow what I'm calling constrained drag and drop, where one is simply moving rows in a list that are normally dragged and dropped up and down, or columns normally dragged left and right, relative to each other.   There is no reason that there could not be a keyboard shortcut, in Windows itself, for the equivalent of left mouse click and hold, after which the up/down/left/right arrows could function to move the row or column or object in the directions it can possibly move in.  I was thinking really of rows and columns, but even in grid layouts where something could move in all those directions could use such, and I didn't include this, which I should have.  After the move is done, there would either need to be a drop/release button or the thing that was the left mouse click and hold button could be a toggle that you'd hit again to drop.

This isn't rocket science, and it's easy to explain the situations where it would be useful.

If anyone wants to read, and/or upvote, and/or add comments of their own, here's the Feedback Hub link:  https://aka.ms/AA9jeas

Re: Changing Browsers

Hope Williamson
 

Since I use an RSS reader, I really have no use for having a news site
as my homepage. I may not want to search for something each time I open
the browser, but if I want to search for something it's easy enough to
get back to the homepage.

    I suppose if you use web-based email you could have your email

I stopped using web-based mail about 3 years ago, so I have no need for
that.

I never wanted a search engine as my home page, either. When somebody had to reinstall windows on my old laptop, he put google as my home page. I asked him why he did that, and he was surprised I didn't want that. He said most people he repairs computers for want google as their home page. I said I could always get into the browser and open up google and perform the search I want to. I used to have optimum as my home page. Pam.

I consider it a bad use of the home page feature to have it be a search
engine site in most cases. I, for example, would much rather have a news
site as the home page, since I look at it a number of times a day to see
what new content has been added.

Unless I want to conduct a search almost every time I open a browser, why
have a search engine as the home page? I can simply issue the command
control k, type a search and press enter no matter what page I'm on.

I, myself, would far rather have a news site as a home page, since I look at
it a number of times a day to see if new content has been added. others
might want another kind of home page but why use a search engine when
conducting searches is so easy without being on the actual page?

and I have forms mode automatically come on, so I just have to type what I’m
looking for, then press enter. When the page of search results loads I use
the R key to move to the main region of the page. I then use the H key to
move through the search results as most of them are denoted by a heading. If

I share this question. Without a definition of what this means, in
practice, it's really impossible to help much.

And, like so much in Windows, and in this case in browsers, ALT+D throws
focus straight to the web address edit box and selects what's already there,
so if you wish to overtype on a tab/page already open to go somewhere else
you can. It works in every modern browser I'm aware of and I just tested it
in Firefox, Edge, Chrome, and Brave and it has this behavior in all of them.

Re: JDownloader--Trouble with Installation screen

Laz
 

Hi Nancy,

After seeing your message I downloaded it and attempted to install
it. I used a combination of NVDA and Narrator and got through about 3
or 4 steps using the default settings but was unable to complete the
installation. I don't know if JAWS can do a better job
reading/accessing those screens as I don't use JAWS.

IMO it has a very inaccessible installation procedure for which you'll
need some sighted help.

Watch out as it mentioned something about installing a browser or
search engine which was when I decided to quit trying to get through a
very horrible installation procedure. I beleive I had tried this a few
years ago with similar results.

Stay well,

Thanks Loy, this looks like just what I'm looking for.

Are these USB powered? Near the top of the description it says something
about 3.5 mm which would be the plug for the earphone jack I presume,
but at the bottom I see USB mentioned.

Hi all,

I seem to be getting a short in the computer speakers I'm using now and
so I need to replace them, does anybody have recommendations on a set of
reasonably priced speakers? Btw I rarely if ever listen to music on the
computer so I don't need anything with a lot of base or anything, just
something that sounds good with jaws. I would like what I get to be a
pair of speakers, but they can be USB, bluetooth, or they can just plug
in via the earphone jack.

Thanks.

Troy
