sending e-mail via Google

Is it possible to send a webpage via e-mail using Google Chrome? There used to be an option in the file menu of IE to do this, but I'm not finding it anywhere in Google Chrome.
 
Thanks.

In case there might be any misunderstanding, I didn't write what I did to be personally critical. I was saying that letting things sit for long times usually accomplishes nothing and may, as in this instance, place unnecessary wear on something. I'm trying to encourage you not to follow that practice. I wwrote what I did for that reason, not to be personally critical of what you did.

Can you copy files to other folders on the drive? Its up to you what you do
but you let the computer run, accomplishhing nothing for perhaps ten or
twelve hours. I don't think the disk activity did any harm, drives are
intended to work over a long period of time with a lot of use, but even so,
you made it work for nothing for hours. Why even take a small chance of
placing wear on a drive?

Thanks Gene,
Instead of letting me review the screen, NVDA just got quiet. So I let
it be for awhile. At bedtime, the was still no speach but there was
constant hard drive activity. This morning, it was in the same
condition. So I unplugged the external drive and the activity
continued. So I forced a shutdown with the power switch. Now, on power
up, it came up normal and the target folder on the backup drive is still
empty. So now I get to start over.

I'm not saying that I am sure the operation won't begin if you wait, but its very unlikely and you can do much more likely things to solve the problem.

Since there is no error message, we don't know what is occurring. If trying the operation again doesn't work, can you open files from the drive? If you remove the drive and connect the drive again, can you do what you want? Does rebooting the computer solve the problem?

Unless those 44 folders, or 4 files, are of a gargantuan size you'd be nowhere near to reaching physical limits on the storage device for the creation of additional files or folders.

You can use “Prompt Create” for this. Focus the edit box and press “JAWSKey  +F2” and arrow down to prompt create. You should be able to create the correct prompts for each combo box.

Using outlook 2016 here, I just looked in the contact form and there is an
email index button. I spacebar on it and it shows email one, email 2 etc.
I would look in your contact form in outlook 2013 and somewhere in there it
will have a slot for email 1, etc.

Root Directory Limit

Howard Traxler
 

Using windows 10, 19.9, and NVDA almost latest.

Is there a limit to the number of folders on the root directory of a hard drive?  I have a 4TB WD Passport; 44 folders and 4 files. Trying to copy files into one of the folders on it from my main drive but it doesn't indicate that anything is happening.  Usually when I do this, I can review the screen and see how many folders/files,percent complete, speed, copying filename, and remaining time and files.  But this time it shows nothing so far. Reviewing the screen, somewhere it says "this folder is empty." and at the bottom it says 0 items.  I am really puzzled.

Any thoughts, please.

If you want no one who's mailed to know who else has been sent the message, then I recommend sending it back to yourself in the To: field and putting all other recipients in the BCC field.

Be warned, though, that most e-mail service providers do have a limit on how many addresses can appear in any one of the "recipient" fields, as a form of spam control.  You could, at one time, put, say, 200 email addresses in the BCC field, do a send, and all would be well.  If you try that now, the message will often be bounced back to you.  You sometimes have to play the game of pairing down the list until you hit the size your email service provider allows, then send several copies of that message to however many members of what had been your original list of recipients that you can send to in any single message.
