Re: Help with C-Cleaner

Gene
 

I haven't compared brands. You might do a search for something like external hard drive reviews, or best external hard drives 2021 to see if you can find reviews from this year. Or if you don't find results, or good ones, doing a search for best hard drives 2020 should produce results for last year.

I use Seagate, but aside from the brand being cheaper than many other brands, I can't comment on their reliability when compared with other brands.

There are options for backing up files not using external hard drives. I'll let others discuss that. But in terms of storing more than your internal hard drive will hold, not as a backup but as a way to store and retrieve material conveniently, an external hard drive is a good and widely used option.

You may save enough space to solve the problem for a time, but you need an
external hard drive to store material on to really free up a meaningful
amount of space. Also, are you backing things up?

I am running out of space on my Dell Latitude laptop running windows 7, and
disk cleanup is not sufficient at all. Could someone please give me
instructions on how to use C-Cleaner and where to find it?



I did read an article on the internet about things that can be deleted
during disk cleanup such as windows update cleanup and system archived
windows error reporting, but I have never seen these when doing disk cleanup

on my windows 7. Thank you very much for any assistance.

Re: Printing for my phone

 

Hello Roberta,
Whenever I print something I always go into Safari and then press the share button at the bottom of the webpage and from there there is a print button. This should work as long as your phone is paired with your printer.
Hope this helps,
PS feel free to contact me off list if you have any questions.

Re: Can a blind person successfully stream using a computer? Tablet?

 

Hello, yes it is possible for a blind person to be able to stream video from a tablet as long as they have some sort of a voiceover assistant on and the app is compatible with the assistant.
Hope this helps, feel free to email me back if you have any other questions.

Try the following:
1. With Chrome open press, Alt + F, to open the menues, now press the letter, L, to open More Tools, and press the letter, E, to open Extensions.
 
2. Now navigate by Heading using the letter, H, to the extension you want to disable or remove.
 
3. Tab a couple of times to the, Remove, button or tab 1 more time to the, Disable, button depending on what you want to do.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Group,

Earlier today, I tried using Pontes Media Downloader and right in the middle of my attempts, I lost Internet connectivity. This was in the middle of a Pontes download from Youtube. I had to reboot my modem and router and then everything seemed to work OK except for Pontes. At this same time, the JAVA applet decided to update. In the past, when JAVA has updated, it has broken Pontes and I had to either uninstall and reinstall Pontes or manually install the youtube-dl.exe file from youtube-dl.org.

In any case, I went through all this business and Pontes still didn't work. I then began playing around with the menus in Pontes, something I almost never do. I saw an item under the downloads menu that said: 'clear all list items.' I clicked this item and then tried using Pontes again. What do you know? It worked! i tried several songs after this from Youtube and they all downloaded just fine.

So maybe when your version of Pontes Media Downloader doesn't work any more, try accessing the download menu and the 'clear all list items' before you do anything radical.

That command opens options. It is a short cut. To open the menus, from which you can open options and see other things available, use alt, as usual in menu programs. But for some reason, in version 3.x. the first time you down arrow, nothing happens except maybe something visual. If you down arrow twice, you will move through the menu you are on.

Amazon Echo 4th gen speaker

Fanus
 

Hello list
I hope this is not off topic. Here in SA a company advertise an amazon echo
4th gen with smart hub included. I searched on the amazon site for such a
device in the hope I can find a book explaining the device but I do not find
the device. Is there such a device? I specifically look for an echo with a
smart hub. Also, is there an email list for echo devices?
Regards
Fanus

I wish pontes downloader would work with cartoon and anime websites such as kissCartoon, and also sites such as watch cartoons online. Is it difficult to add more websites to the download engine?
