All I can report sir is my default browser is chrome, but when I launch ie, go to m.facebook.com it opens up in edge.

I, at times get this message: The website you were trying to reach doesn't work with Internet Explorer - Office Support.

I don’t mind chrome, I just can’t log into fb with chrome.

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.

Hi Carolyn. You should be able to press the number 3 key. It should ask you
if you want to delete the book, and to press confirm to delete it. What
happens when you do this?

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

It sounds to me as though, in some way, a file became interlinked with other files.  In other words, something happened and more than one file shares allocation chains that only one file should share.  I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss the technical aspect further.  I think this kind of problem is very rare but it sounds to me as though that is what happened.


Its been a long time since I've seen anything about this but I believe the term is linked or interlinked, I don't recall which.


I saw this a long time ago and I think I only saw it once when I was using Windows 3.1 and I got a system faulted message.  Using scan disk found a lot of interlinked files.

Hi Gene,

I have beenusing the Victor Stream for about 11 years.
It just happens.
Once in a while the little slider on the edge of a s d card gets bumped
into the write-protect position.
Remove the card from the stream or pc and slide it back to the off
position.
All will be fine.

Do you get any sort of message such as a right protected announcement? I
wonder if those cards can be set to be right protected or if that is a sign
of a defective card as it is a sign of a defective thumb drive.

Or, if you get an access denied message, that may be solved by changing
permission settings for the card, but I haven't learned muchof anything
about permission settings.

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.

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.
