Re: I can't erase books from my Victor Reader Stream.

Yes, I have had this problem several times.
Sometimes, the little slider on the s d card gets moved to the "up" position and the card becomes "write protected".
I have always been successful in moving the little slider to the down position.

make sure the tab on the card is not slid to the protected position. or, if the tab is missing you might be able to use tape, or copy the cards'
contents to your computer and throw away that card.

Thank you, this did it. I never seen these instructions any where else and I could not find that option navigating on my own.

To my knowledge, account management in Outlook 365 is the same as it was in Outlook 2016 and 2019.

ALT+F,I,S,A  (File tab, Account Information, Account Settings Dropdown, Account Settings item)

You then get the standard Account Settings dialog that I've known in Outlook for as long as I can remember. You can use the Remove option there once the account you wish to remove is selected.

Re: edge

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

To tell the truth, I'd be shocked if Facebook itself is forcing Edge.  

In virtually all cases, though there are some very rare exceptions, opening of URLs in a browser will occur in whatever browser you have set as the default web browser in Settings, Apps, Default Apps.

Microsoft did, long ago, switch its own "out of the box" and "as a result of certain updates" setting for default browser to Edge.  I changed that to Brave on my own system.

Every once in a blue moon, though, I will have certain Microsoft webpages force a URL they open to open in Edge.

Has anyone done that?  Even if someone had, actually going through a set of step-by-step instructions yourself teaches you an awful lot more than just sitting back and having someone do something for you, with you probably not even knowing what they've done.

This question is just, well, shocking.

During these days of Covid-19, it's almost certainly going to be no slower, at a minimum.  And I'd honestly expect your assessment about it being faster is correct.

It's among the options presented at Contact the Google Disability Support Team.

Hi All:

How about using the Be My Eyes app to reach Google support? That might be a
tad faster than trying to do the same by phone. I may be wrong, but I think
that phone contacts with enterprises in this new age is not as great as it
once was. That said, it'll be ever so nice if enterprises, large and small,
offer phone contacts as a possible backup.
