Jim,

I forgot to tell you how to create a signature, so here it goes. 

 

1, alt+f

 

2, up arrow and enter on options,

Or simply press the letter t for options.

 

3, down arrow until you hear mail.

 

4, now tab until you hear;

Signatures....button, press enter.

now you can use the tab key and should be able to find the edit field.

 

Type your signature

Don’t forget to save your changes.

Jim,
What I would do with your PC, check the updates, if no updates, I would check the space on your PC, and set it up to do a reset, and be done with it. If something was to go wrong, you would blame me, and I couldn't blame you for that. When I say I would love to get my hands on that, I mean have the PC in my possession, so this way you couldn't blame me! Smile! Can you tell me what are the steps you use to check for the update on your PC?

Gene,
Come on now! We all have to eventually update programs in order for them to work smoothly. One can only get so much out of a program when it is not supported. Oh sure, one can still use it, but the program will run much more smoothly when it receives updates. I myself use Outlook 2010, and it is barely hanging on.

Why do you say it won't work efficiently? Something being out of support
has nothing to do with how well it works unless conditions change over time
such as a browser that is years old not being able to work with new Internet
code.

It may be that if something is out of support long enough, it won't work
properly in a new version of Windows, but a lot of old programs still work
well.

I do agree with some of what you are saying, but once again, we don't know what is stopping these features from doing their job. If Jim spent several hours on the phone with MS, I'm sure they must have tried something. I'm sure probably one of the first things they did was to grab a hold of the trouble shooter tool, but what was the results, we don't know.

Well, the windows update troubleshooter fixes most problems. Dism and
sfc will repair any file corruptions. But the factory reset or cloud
reset is very accessible and he isn't dependant on anyone for help when
performing them. They are certain to fix the problem. Maybe the MS agent
didn't know what he was tlalking about?

I know what a factory install is, and I'm sure by now Jim knows as well, but MS didn't advise him to do that, and they didn't offer to do that either. Basically in order for Jim to do a factory reset, all he had to do was use the reset feature on his Win PC, and that would be the factory reset. Because we don't know what the exact reason is to why Jim's PC won't allow him to download, and because there is no guarantee that would correct the main problem, that could do more damage than good to his PC. Remember, we don't know what is stopping the updates from downloading.

If MS support tried to do everything he could do a factory reset instead
of a for a clean install. A factory reset still keeps files and is

That's right. I wasn't thinking about the time properly. Having
said that, two months without updates isn't any sort of
catastrophe. Have your data files, music, books, whatever else
backed up, as they should be anyway, browse sites that are
considered safe, keep your browsers updated, have your antimalware
definitions current, follow safety rules, and the gap in protection
is unlikely to cause problems and if it does, you will have all
your data files backed up to be placed on the next machine. Keep
the drive you are backing them up on disconnected from the machine
when you aren't using it. You should do that anyway. That way, if
the machine should become infected, your data is much less likely
to be affected.

I don't think there is any good way to proceed except these choices::
Continue to use the machine as it is, perform a reset and see what
happens, reinstall Windows from scratch, which I don't think should
be done until after a reset is attempted, or take the machine to a
reputable repair place and see what they find and recommend.

I'm not trying to be dictatorial. I'm telling you what I think the
choices are that make sense. There is a chance, it may be a small
or quite a small one, that the machine won't work or won't work as
well after you try a reset. It may solve your problems, at least
temporarily, however. And if necessary, whatever happens with the
reset, you can reinstall Windows from scratch if you wish or take
it to a shop and have it done. If you can't do things that are
important, you may want to try a reset and reinstall Windows if a
reset doesn't work. Either way, there will be considerable work
involved because you will have to reinstall all programs.

I should also say that if you take the machine to a good tech,
he/she may find a way to solve the problems you are having while
not doing a reset or reinstalling Windows. I don't know how likely
that is, however, and you may end up spending more than you want
with the result that the problems aren't solved or that not all are.

Re: Braille Displays

If your choices came down to those two devices, go with the Braille
Sense. There is absolutely no competition there. I think Freedom
Scientific did its best to come up with a good Windows PC replacement,
but the processor is ridiculously slow. The Braille Sense has enormous
horse power by comparison. Also, the Braille Sense is going to let you
do more dynamic things. This is just one person’s opinion, but if you
do a spec by spec comparison, the Braille Sense wins on all counts.

Good luck!

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I have used the Orbit twenty before
and liked it. I need a braille display that can recognize Word files,
because some of the forms I need to complete for customers are in
Word. I don't mind a Braille keyboard, but the Mantis sounds
interesting. I also, may take a closer look at the Brailliant Bi 40.
Does the Brailliant recognize .docx files?

Hi,

I am in the market for a new braille display for my job. It needs to
be no less than twenty cells, small enough to throw into my backpack
and can read Word documents

I have used the Focus 40, but it does not meet my needs. I am looking
for suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Evan,
That's good you just updated some updates, but from what I've read about all these confusing updates, is if one is updating from 1909, they might need to update to 2004 first, so you might see that, and if so, just download again! I've also heard some people say they downloaded from version 1909 to 20h2 with no problem, but they didn't know the PC was downloading 2004 first, and then downloaded version 20h2. Just some information so you will be aware of, and if that is the case, it might take the download quite a long time to complete, just so you have an idea.

Janet, yes, she's running 1909. I did get the two updates and rebooted
the machine.

She's using it right now, so I'll follow up tomorrow and see if any more
updates are now available.

Hi Janet,

She's running Windows 10 Pro. The System Information says that it's version 10.0.18363. I just checked with Windows Update, and there were two updates, both for version 1909. One was for removing Flash, and the other was for updating dot net framework 3.5 and 4.8, I think.

But there was nothing in the list about an update to get Windows 2009.
So I'm not sure how to get it.

Hi,

First download and install those two updates. After a reboot, run a check for updates, if nothing shows up, its possible that  the branch was set to CBB instead of CB, CBB is for business. Click on advanced settings and make sure updates aren't paused and branch is set to current branch. You should see a windows 10 update available, download and install link. Clicking on that link kicks off the update.

Also, 18363 is windows 1909.

Are you sure Windows is set to automatically update the updates? From my understanding, Windows 10 isn't set to automatically update the updates.  I could be wrong though. It sounds like your partner might be using Win 10 version 1909, you might want to check that, as that is ending May 11 2021.

I apologize. I came in in the middle of this thread.

My Life Partner is getting messages on her PC that her version of
Windows 10 is reaching the end of its service life.

I confess that I'm a bit confused by this. If Windows 10 updates are
automatic, why doesn't it just install whatever it needs and stop
bugging her?

Since she isn't very tech savvy, I'll have to do whatever needs doing to
get rid of that message. So what do I have to do?

I really appreciate any guidance; and once again, I apologize for coming
into the middle of this thread.

If this question has already been answered, then someone can reply off
list rather than cluttering up the thread with repetition.

Thanks very much.

That's right.  I wasn't thinking about the time properly.  Having
said that, two months without updates isn't any sort of
catastrophe.  Have your data files, music, books, whatever else
backed up, as they should be anyway, browse sites that are
considered safe, keep your browsers updated, have your antimalware
definitions current, follow safety rules, and the gap in protection
is unlikely to cause problems and if it does, you will have all your
data files backed up to be placed on the next machine. Keep the
drive you are backing them up on disconnected from the machine when
you aren't using it.  You should do that anyway.  That way, if the
machine should become infected, your data is much less likely to be
affected.

I don't think there is any good way to proceed except these choices::
Continue to use the machine as it is, perform a reset and see what
happens, reinstall Windows from scratch, which I don't think should
be done until after a reset is attempted, or take the machine to a
reputable repair place and see what they find and recommend.

I'm not trying to be dictatorial.  I'm telling you what I think the
choices are that make sense.  There is a chance, it may be a small
or quite a small one, that the machine won't work or won't work as
well after you try a reset.  It may solve your problems, at least
temporarily, however.  And if necessary, whatever happens with the
reset, you can reinstall Windows from scratch if you wish or take it
to a shop and have it done.  If you can't do things that are
important, you may want to try a reset and reinstall Windows if a
reset doesn't work.  Either way, there will be considerable work
involved because you will have to reinstall all programs.

I should also say that if you take the machine to a good tech,
he/she may find a way to solve the problems you are having while not
doing a reset or reinstalling Windows.  I don't know how likely that
is, however, and you may end up spending more than you want with the
result that the problems aren't solved or that not all are.

Which means that it is still receiving security and stability updates.
Therefore, there is no security reason to upgrade at this time. the
other
computer should be there long before support stops.
