A Basic Notepad Question

lynn white
 

This is probably classed as a basic Windows question. But, how can I locate what folder Notepad stores a file that I create? It seems that the folder location
changes.

Thanks in advance.


sighted child can't always see videos on my PC's screen can i fix this with no vision

joanne
 

OK didn't know how to put this in a subject line, and perhaps we who are totally blind may not be able to do anything that absolutely makes sure YouTube or other videos are showing on the screen. But I'm gonna just put this out there because there may be a trick or something someone can share. I play videos for my grandchildren, and of course the youngest aren't quite able to maneuver a mouse or fix the screen for better viewing. Several times an older child comes in and says the toddler can't see what I thought for sure was being seen. The monitor is on and all, but he told me that the video is further down and I assumed that if you open a video you're right there on it visually speaking. I do know I get it right most of the time, but of course it's frustrating for the kid if they can't fix it or tell me to arrow down or page down or something. Does putting everything on full screen guarantee it's seen? Or is it because I'm using Jaws and I do know Jaws doesn't always follow the PC and sighted people often take it out if they're using the computer. I just wondered ... or does using NVDA keep the cursor from jumping around and does having NVDA open keep the video where it's supposed to be? If full screen is the answer, do I need to go to the top of the page after hitting full screen? It's just frustrating because I want to be able to know this little one is actually seeing the pictures and animation he likes so much.

Re: vizio smart tvs?

juan gonzalez
 

I got a Sony tv with android built in which works great. It sounds like that tv you are looking at has android built in as well. They do have the android tv separate if you want to get a non smart TV but there are limitations to this. I would go with built in anytime. I can do most things with the google assistant that is also built in. you will need sighted assistance to get talk back up and running though.

Hope this helps and happy shopping.

Hi,

I learned that vizio tvs have a screen reader built in, called talk back. The smart tvs. So is this screen reader related to talk back on android phones? Does it work good with apps? Or are fire 4k tvs such as insignia better for blind people to buy? In other words what is the best screen reader since I am looking into upgrading my tv to a 4k smart tv?

MS doesn’t take the update servers down that quickly and businesses still use Windows 7 in some cases so you should be fine.

Hi,

 

If someone wants to reinstall Windows 7 from an original  disk, will the updates to Windows 7 be available up to the point when it was no longer supported or will the disk be as far as it goes?

 

This is going on a computer that had Windows 7 from that disk as a previous OS.

Outlook contacts issue/question

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I was looking at stuff on my old laptop today and noticed that I have a few
Outlook contacts on my old computer that aren't in my contacts on this laptop.
So I'm wondering, is there any way to get specific contacts from my contacts on
my old computer to my list on this computer? I know how to do a Outlook backup
and import it (though I've never done it from one computer to another), but most
of the contacts are the same on both computers so I don't really want to do that
because then I'd have duplicates and I don't want that. I don't even know why
these particular contacts don't show up in my contacts on this computer, a
backup was imported, so I don't know if I accidentally deleted them or what
happened. My old computer is running Outlook 2013, Windows 7 and the latest
vertion of Jaws and this computer is running the latest versions of Office 365,
Jaws and Windows 10. Really hope there's a way to do this as I'd really like to
have these missing contacts on this computer as I rarely use my old one. Look
forward to any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks
Madison

Strange Verbiage with iPhone and Amazon Kindle

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

Recently, I have been reading a number of Kindle books using amazon Kindle on my iPhone SE Second generation.  Some are not accessible and are returnable. Most are readable when purchased from Amazon. However, when I am reading and using a Braille Display (the Brailliant B-40) periodically, I see the following expression displayed in Braille:
KRE_IOS_accessibility_image.

Sometimes I have to press the advance line key up to 15 or 20 times to move past this expression.  What is this odd reference representing and is there any setting I can change to eliminate it?

Thanks for any help.

If price is an option a SATA based SSD is y your next choice.

If even that is too much a spinning hard drive.

Western Digital is good IMO .

However for SSDs Samsung is the best. Their Evo drives are top notch

Microsoft Edge Latest Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows & Mac

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

 
 
Microsoft Edge Keyboard Shortcuts
By
David
 / May 16, 2021 /
Microsoft Edge Keyboart Shortcuts Featured

In a web browser world where Google Chrome tends to dominate, Microsoft is working fast and furious to show that Edge is more than competitive. Using the
Chromium open-source option, Edge already takes the best
 of Chrome’s speed and twists it into something that can give it the “edge”. From its first preview to the world in 2015 to now, Edge has grown in significant
ways and is more than worth considering for any Windows 10 user. That it adds a deep set of keyboard shortcuts to make your browsing even faster is all
the more reason to give it a close look.
 
Why Use Microsoft Edge
 
On a surface level, Edge is a browser not unlike the many other names you are familiar with like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. While Chrome and Edge are
similar under the hood thanks to the Chromium rendering engine, that is pretty much where the similarities end. Privacy in particular is a huge reason
users of other browsers should take a hard look at Edge. With three simple settings of Basic, Balanced and Strict, Edge users can set their own privacy
level and know that they are secure. Edge also blocks “potentially unwanted apps” from installing which is not unlike other browser protective measures
but Edge seems to take it up a notch. Beyond security, Edge offers a clean looking design that feels right at home on both Windows 10 and Mac.
 
Microsoft Edge Keyboart Shortcuts Browser
 
When you start to look at more of Edge’s unique features, that’s when it really stands out from the competition.
New features like Collections
 that help you keep track of your ideas on the web are stand-out features that can really change how you browse the web. Speaking of browsing the web,
built-in price comparison tools will help you shop online with Edge and save money. Combine price comparison and a coupon discovery tool and Edge can help
put money back into your pocket. Parents can rest assured that not only does Edge have strong built-in privacy protection, but “Kids Mode” enables a browser
made for young children. No matter what mode you use Edge in, extras like a huge list of keyboard shortcuts will help you browse faster and more securely
without thinking twice. Let’s take a look at some of the best keyboard shortcuts so you can get started with Microsoft Edge today.

noticed, once you email someone using web based gmail that it adds it to
your contacts is this true?
If not, how can I add a contact using web base gmail?

I got a feeling that basic html does not have this function as compared ot standard view.

this is the settings you should be after
notifications:
(allows Gmail to display pop-up notifications on your desktop when new email messages arrive)

If you are referring to just  notification, if you enable it in gmail itself, it will push the info to your screen reader of your choice saying like, you have an email or something. 

but that will work if you did enable the notification on your web browser.

If one is using gmail on the web, is it possible to get an automatic
notification when receiving a new email like how I do in outlook and all I
need to do is press windows key a and down arrow to hear what came through?

Re: question about a new internal drive

John Holcomb II
 

Go with M.2 if you have it. An M.2 SSD will make your PC fly.

If price is an option a SATA based SSD is y your next choice.

If even that is too much a spinning hard drive.

Western Digital is good IMO .

However for SSDs Samsung is the best. Their Evo drives are top notch

I did not think about that. I want another seegate drive or a western digital drive, my Toshiba drive did not last long. My see gate drive is that old 10 drive I have been using as my back up storage drive, cant remember what the main c drive is Well, silly me I should just have the computer tell me woe. Thanks for that for reminding me about SATA base SSD. Thanks Heather

You could get a SATA base SSD.

Another option, does your PC have any M.2 slots?

Hi,  whether you neec a bracket  or not depends on what kind of drive you get.

If you buy a sata drive,  you will  not need a bracket.

If you buy a s s d frive, you will need a bracket and probably a cable also.

What type of drive  is currently installed?

Well the man upstairs likes to try my patience I gather as I got the blue screen this morning off my desktop. But, I was finally able to get in to windows, I guess I just will not shut down my pc for the time being.So I am looking in to another internal c drive to replace this 1, it is about seven years old. So do the internal drives come with a bracket with the drive? I am asking as I know the newer drives maybe smaller than my old drive. The drive just slides in to my pc I think it has 2 screws that hold it in in the top bay of my desktop casing. My computer desktop already has wires to give power to the drive. Thanks Heather

Re: question about a new internal drive

Yes I backed up the whole system now. All my ports are working, both my cd and dvd drives are working. The fans are working off the machine. The only hick-up is that the front ports seem to not have that much power, to be expected, otherwise they work fine.

 I have 2 drives on the machine, one is about 10 years old and the main drive is about 8 years old, now that I think about it. I have been noticing lately my quiet drive was getting louder and taking a long time to boot up. So I ran a disk clean up which worked for a while.  The older drive sounds like it wants to be sent to the junk yard, it is extremely loud when it is running, sounds like those drives  they used back in the 90s. So when you try to do anything, you have to wait a long time for a response.

My main c drive will not back up so I had to manual grab the data off the drive and back it up. I could not just copy the user folder, it would never finish.

I clean my pc case and they have no major dust in it as I check about every 2 months or so just to see if it has any dust. I have a really good friend who actually was able to use the parts from my other machines and add them to this machine. So I took all the working parts from my old machine that were still working and continue to use them in this machine. The only thing I could not take was the memory as it was built in to the mother board. I used all my bays on this machine and we installed the USB 3.0 ports from the other machine. I can say I have never bought that brand again, think it was a gateway machine and now only have used HP machines. But the parts did come in handy. So I am thinking about just getting a new internal drive and if it does not work, I might consider getting a new pc and just using that drive as a back up internal storage drive.  I rather spend 50 to 70 instead  300 or more for a desktop. I am trying to do it without having a tec come in as I do not trust them, had really bad experiences and none tell you the truth, only want to get you to spend money.

I am not a computer person at all I try to learn as much as I need too. So maybe this machine is old, it is from 2013.I think this my 3 pc The other one was from school and I briefly got a gatewaythat lasted 2.5 years. But my other machines lasted like 10 years or more.

I try to make sure my desktop can grow or expand in case I need the up dated technology as if you look at my machine, I have usb 1, 2 and 3. I have serial and parallel port  and a monitor port and a video card reader along with a cd-burner and a dvd drive.

I wonder if the new pcs have any of those items, it has been a long time sense I had to purchase a new desktop. I think they have USB 3.0 drives or maybe a cd/dvd drive.I know the next machine, I want to make sure it has removable memory in case the memory goes out and all you have to do is by more memory and I find the internal internet cards do not work as well as an external internet card. Little things I noticed I notice my internal audio card does not work as well as a external card so I use my USB ports for my speakers now. Think that was the first thing to go out about a year ago, I think. I use a USB monitor as the monitor port always got in the way and the USB monitor was cheaper when my old monitor went out that was 10 years old. Now I think about it, I only use my USB ports and the CD and DVD drives for anything as all the connections are either USB, Bluetooth or I still use my cd drive sometimes.

I thank this list for all the excellent information, I truly appreciate all the view points. Thank you all,

Heather

I’m not saying you should have a tech perform a diagnostic, it may cost as much or less to replace the drive.  But you don’t know if the drive is the problem. 

 

I don’t know how many things may cause a blue screen and I wouldn’t jump to any conclusion about what it is.  So the question is whether you want to gamble and replace the drive, or perhaps spend more money for the combined cost of a diagnostic and then proceeding to do what needs to be done which may add up to more than the cost of just replacing the drive.  But if you are wrong and the drive isn’t the problem, you are spending money for nothing and losing it that way.  So you are gambling. 

 

Memory contact problems may cause blue screens.  I would imagine power supply problems may cause them.  there may be many other reasons I don’t know about that those with more technical knowledge can tell you.

 

Also, if your computer is seven years old, you are putting money into a machine that has ;past the age where it is considered reliable.  You may fix one thing and have other problems.  If you are lucky, you won’t for years.  If you aren’t, you will have problems and you may have been better off just buying a new machine.  My impression is that many people won’t spend much money on machines of your age. 

 

While I’m not telling you or suggesting that you do or don’t do anything, I am saying that the subject needs more discussion and consideration on the list.  Don’t jump to conclusions about what causes problems with ssignificantly insufficient information.

 

Also, since we don’t know what the problem is, but in case it is a hard drive problem, is your entire system backed up?

 

Gene
