Re: saving a message so that links remain links

Gene
 

Text saves nothing but actual carachters such as letters and nnumbers.  I don’t know what options you have to save messages in.  Either save them as eml messages, which saves the actual message or in a format like HTML.  If you save in eml format, when you press enter on the message name, it will open in your e-mail program and it will be just as it was when you read it originally in the program.
 
I don’t know if any e-mail programs let you save the message in other formats, but if they do, and you save it as an HTML file, it will open in the default browser.

Hi all,


This may seem like a basic question to most and maybe it is, but if I
get an e-mail that I want to save in a way that the links in the message
remain links that I can access later on what format do I need to save in?


Thanks, I just tried to save a message in txt format and when I reopened
it after saving the links weren't there.

Re: extra files off my knew hard drive

Gene
 

these files are very small.  while there may be no reason to keep them, they take up such a small amount of room that I don’t think it matters if you leave them or not.  Since I don’t think deleting them would cause any harm, but since I don’t have enough knowledge on the subject of just what they do to be sure and since the use of space is miniscule, I would leave them on.

Hi all,

Since you probably have terabytes of space on that drive, just leave
'em.  They aren't takin' up too much space.

Re: computer will not recognize my external drive

Fixed by using diskpart to re format the drive.

Hello,

 

I had this same problem in the past. You can either reformat it or use a disk utility program such as diskpart to bring it back on line. I If not familiar with the option write back for details. Easiest option is reformat unless you need some items on it.

I replaced my computer hard drive with an SSD drive and put the old SATA drive in a drive enclosure to use for data storage. I deleted the recovery partitions and I guess I missed a step and now when I connect the drive to computer it dings but does not show up. Is there anyway to fix  this?

Re: Dropbox Question

Gene
 

You may not get an answer here. This may be an uncommon problem.  Do you have a paid account?  If so, I believe you can get support from people working for Dropbox.  I say I believe because I think anyone with any paid account can.  If you are a free user, you can’t.  In that case, you can join the users forum and ask about the problem there. 
 
I believe there is a chat bot you can use  as a free user but I don’t know how much help you might get from that.

Hi,
 
I have my Dropbox checked to save only in the cloud and not local on my computer. Today I got a notice that I am running out of space in Dropbox which I knew was not true.
 
I checked my dropbox sync settings, and everything was unchecked, the main folder and all the folders inside. Neither local nore online was checked. I tried to check the main dropbox folder to online, but it wouldn't check, so I went inside the folder and checked all of the subfolders separately and that worked, including automatically checking the main Dropbox folder.
 
I then added several files to one of the subfolders, and, not only did it become unchecked to both local and online, the main dropbox folder did as well. Those folders I hadn't changed remained checked to online, even though the main Dropbox folder was completely unchecked.
 
Where can I go to make sure this doesn't happen, that it will sync to online whenever I add files to a folder and not uncheck itself?
 
Thanks.
 
Vicki

Browsers for windows and iOS

Lexi
 

Hello everyone, does anyone know of any browsers not based in chrome? I have  firefox. Which allows me to move by first letter navigation when I'm going through my bookmarks. Which is really important to me because I have over 200 bookmarks. But when I go into the Firefox app for my phone, my last bookmark is at the bottom of the list and I'm trying to get them into alphabetical order. I know I would like there to be an app for windows and for iOS because I like all my bookmarks to sync up. I hope I'm making sense.

Yes, you have to have a product key to register the software.

Hi all,


I bought Ms Word 2019 recently and I'm having trouble getting it registered.


I have a product key and when I try to open a Word file the dialogue comes up saying that my copy of Word isn't registered so I go to where I can put in my product key and do that, then I'm told to go back and sign into my Microsoft account and this is where the problems seem to start.
I enter the e-mail associated with the newly created Microsoft account and the password but then it tells me that there's a problem with my Microsoft account. I can't figure out what's wrong with the account though, is there a different way to register without having a Microsoft account since this is the only thing I'll be using the account for?


I apparently can use Word without registering it because once the registration dialogue comes up I can hit alt-f4 several times and eventually I get to a point where jaws will read the contents of the Word file, and I'll do that if there's no work-arounds but I hope there is.


Thanks.


Troy
