Re: HP laptop : How to enter safe mode?

Gene
 

Why don't you use the reset option in Windows 10 which doesn't rely on safe mode and will place a clean Windows 10 on the machine.

Subject: [TechTalk] HP laptop : How to enter safe mode?


Hi, I was informed on this list that my installation of windows 10 is most likely damaged (I have previously posted the slowness using jaws and windows 10 and th lag and what not on the system.)

I was told that if I enter safe mode, I can choose to either reinstall the windows 8 that came pre-installed on the laptop, or reinstall windows 10, since my cousin did the upgrade to windows 10 when microsoft was offering the upgrade for free from windows 8 to windows 10.


My question is how do I enter safe mode on an HP laptop. I know that some name brand systems have different safe mode keys taht you have to push and hold while the system is booting up.

(I hae a netbook that uses the F8 key during startup to enter safe mode.

Anyone have a clue as to what I hold down on my HP laptop to enter safe mode?

Many thanks

What are you trying to do? If we know that, we can address the actual problem, not just how you want to try to solve it, which may or may not be necessary or a good solution.

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how to maximize my folder pain on the gmail website and have
it stay that way? I'm trying to do something but it's not showing up and someone
on another list (which clearly isn't for screen reader users) suggested that I
maximize my folder pain. I'm using latest Jaws and Edge. Thanks Madison

Is IMAP option enable in gmail settings before setting up the account in Thunderbird? If so, , after entering your name, user email address and password Thunderbird should automatically detect all relevant settings. Pressing continue once or twice should open a gmail window asking for permission to allow Thunderbird access to gmail account, once that's done the setup should be complete.

Re: help problems with thunder bird and my second gmailaccount

If you send the visual answer, we may be able to figure out what to do from it. I would think it might have something to do with manually entering information and not allowing the automatic search for account system to look or if you get that message, there may be a way to bypass it and set up the second account manually.

But an automated system would find that you have already set up an account and give you some sort of message.

Re: Which of these BlueTooth keyboards are better?

James Bentley
 

LOL, I think that standing would be a problem.

Probably most people use these keyboards while setting on a train or plane,
the bus stop, the doctor's office, etc.

Now it would be interesting to figure out how to use some kind of a lanyard
or neck strap to hold the keyboard and just keep the phone in your pocket or
on a seperate neck lanyard.

Cheers,

Uncle J B, I think you shouldn't totally give up on a folding bluetooth
keyboard. Whilst reading reviews is a good thing, keep in mind that most of
these are written from the perspective of a particular individual. Some
make purchases and DO NOT TAKE THE TIME to put the toy through its paces
before condemning it to death. I've picked up some products with horrible
reviews and have been reasonably happy using them with no qualms. But, I'm
crazy for always doing the wrong thing much of the time!

I like folding bluetooth keyboards because they save me from having to worry
about losing a nano-USB receivers! That said, I'm in the market for a
folding bluetooth keyboard that also incorporates the NumPad keys! There
doesn't seem to be one out there in the wild yet, but I'm watching!

I would strongly recommend the Plugable Compact only because of the magnetic
leather casing it comes with. I tell ya, it does look posh in my view and I
think you'd love it!

The iClever models BK03 and BK05 are also pretty cool; I just wish these
come with magnetic leather casing like the Plugable Compact; no, each comes
with a pouch that has two strings, one on each end. Beyond these small
shortcomings, each one will work as advertised.

John, as I said elsewhere, I always have an over-the-ear bluetooth toy with

and type whatever, then hit Send thereafter, fold the keyboard back and
stick it in my pocket.

Its better not to have it connected when you aren't using it. If you become
infected with malware that infects the external drive when browsing or doing
something else, if the drive is disconnected, you won't infect the drive if
you know you are infected and don't connect it.

However, there is a utility to keep a drive running when it isn't being
used. I don't know if that shortens the life of a USB external drive to
have it be constantly running.

Here is a link to a page that discusses a utility named No Sleep. I believe
it doesn't install unwanted programs. You don't install it, you run it.
Even so, you may want to look at reviews and comments to try to be sure it
doesn't. With free software, installing unwanted programs is a problem with
much of it.

Subject: [TechTalk] external drive goes to sleep

Hi all,


I keep my external drive plugged into my laptop and keep it turned on at
all times in case I need it, but apparently it goes to sleep after a
short time of not using it because even if I'm just trying to open a
folder on the laptop itself it's delayed in opening until the external
drive spins up. Is there any way aside from just turning the drive on
when I want to use it to keep it from going to sleep and thus taking so
much longer for my folders to open?


I have the external drive plugged into a hub that has on/off switches
for each port, and I turned the port off this morning and my folders are
opening much faster so I know it's the external drive that's causing the
slow down.
