I didn’t see that you had provided a copy of the message.  It does answer the question.  I still would treat it as phishing.  Also, you can see the underlying link they want you to go to.  I expect that it will not be to the web site.  It may lead to a site that looks like the web site.  I don’t know what e-mail program you are using but if you tell us, you should be able to be advised how to see that actual link, not the words that are displayed in the link.

Hello,


I just received this Email, that tells me I have deactivated my Email,
which is absolutely not true.  Never visited my Email provider's Web
site, and made No changes to my account.


So, I ask, is this a Fishing attempt, by someone hoping to get my
password?  Or is it real.


And of course, since today is Saturday, I can't just call up my Phone
Company because they are closed for the week end.

Of course, its phishing.  If you deactivated your e-mail, how could you have received that message?  Was the phishing writer smart enough to answer that question by saying that your e-mail would remain active for a certain time?

Navigating PDF Workbooks with JAWS

Joe Orozco
 

Hi, I have a PDF workbook I’m having difficulty navigating with JAWS.
JAWS 2021, latest build on Windows 10, will let me arrow down through
the Table of Contents but won’t let me open or expand any of the
items. I’ve tried Tab, F6, Space, Right Arrow ... nothing works. It
seems the creator used bookmarks to design the Table of Contents.
Regardless, does anyone have tips on how to get to the main content?
When JAWS open these workbooks, it does so with the virtual buffer
turned off. They recommended I use Insert F7, but JAWS can’t list
links in an environment that is not virtual. The workbook also has a
form element to fill in, and I see no way of accessing the form
controls either. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Joe

They may have improved, upped their game so to speak, and if so, then that can't be anything but good for all concerned. There was another outfit years ago in Rhode Island that got themselves a terrible rep for shoddy workmanship and virtually no end-user support. I think they're gone now.

Sudden problem with mp3 Tag Solved

Nancy Shackelford
 

Problem is solved: I finally was able to get in the menu bar and in
the View menu. Apparently, I sometime had hit Control+Q, turning off
the TagPanelTab; I went ahead and hit Enter on that, and, thank
goodness, I got my fields back. This means I had apparently hit
Control+Q instead of Control+A when I wanted to select all. Thanks for
the listen!

Sudden problem with mp3 Tag

I tagged several albums this morning, and all of a sudden, no fields
available to read, let alone change. I don't remember doing anything
to any settings, but I need to know what the problem might be. Also,
apparently can't select all with Control+A; need to just shift-down
arrow and select them all that way. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Re: how do I create a Microsoft account?

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Jim, if you've ever used Skype, you already have a Microsoft account. Else,
follow the prompts from whichever Microsoft app that's requiring you to
create a Microsoft Account. MsTeams is a good example.

As has been suggested though, if you can do without a Microsoft Account and
still get business done, I suggest settling for that 'cause it's less
hassle.

Microsoft Account. A Microsoft account (MSA) is a good choice if a user wants to use the same account on multiple devices. Setting up a preinstalled Windows

the desktop for the first time.

Microsoft account,Windows 10,Xbox One,Office 365,Outlook.com,Microsoft 365,

When you

sign in to your Microsoft account, you

have an all-access pass to Microsoft's premier services. If you use any of these services, you have a Microsoft account: Outlook, Office, Skype, OneDrive,

Xbox Live, Bing, Store, Windows, or MSN. Your Microsoft account lets you manage everything all in one place. Keep tabs on your subscriptions and order

history, organize your family's digital life, update your privacy and security settings, track the health and safety of your devices, and get rewards.

Everything stays with you in the cloud and across devices, including iOS and Android. Get to the people, content, and entertainment that matter to you

most, with your Microsoft account. One account, all things Microsoft.

 

There is certainly people who do not want this though, and Windows 8 made it very difficult to use the Microsoft services if you were not logged in with

a Microsoft Account (MSA).

Why Should I Bother with a Microsoft Account for Windows 10?

Introduced with Windows 8, the Microsoft account is simply an e-mail address and password that lets you access Microsoft’s services. You don’t need a Microsoft

account to use any version of Windows. But eventually, you’ll run across the figure shown below, asking for you to sign in with a Microsoft account.

You can always click Cancel to back out of that window. But when you begin using a Microsoft account, your computing world suddenly becomes a little bit

easier in several ways. Here are just a few ways a Microsoft account comes in handy.

Your settings travel with you

When you log in with a Microsoft account, Windows remembers your settings. So, when you log onto a new PC, it begins to behave a little like your old PC:

You automatically see your same wallpaper and colors. The Start menu’s tiles are rearranged the way you like. Your browser history, favorites, and passwords

travel with you, and you can quickly find your apps in the Windows Store.

To adjust which settings should travel with your Microsoft account, click Windows 10’s Start button, and choose Settings. When the Settings app appears,

click Accounts, and choose Sync Your Settings from the Accounts’ window’s left pane. There, you can flip toggle switches for the settings you’d like to

stay with your account.

Your OneDrive files travel with you

Your Microsoft account gives you access to 15GB of free storage space on the Internet. And you can access those files from any web browser, PC, smartphone

or tablet. Whenever you’re in range of a WiFi connection, you’re within range of your favorite files. If you need to collaborate on a group project, you

can also share a OneDrive folder that everybody can access.

Consolidate e-mail addresses

After many years of computing, many people also have many e-mail addresses. By creating a Microsoft account at Outlook.com, you can also set up Outlook.com

to import mail from your other accounts automatically. Then, no matter which e-mail account you own, the mail will arrive in your Outlook.com mailbox.

(You can also place an Outlook app on your Android phone, iPhone, or iPad, as well.)
