Re: Transferring Outlook info to my new computer

Smiling?
 

Backing up message rules:

 

1. Highlight whatever email and use your Applications key or Shift+F10 keystroke and arrow to Rules submenu... hit enter or simply right arrow.

2. Up arrow once to highlight Manage Rules and Alerts... hit enter. This is going to open up a Rules and Alerts dialogue where you can create, manage  and setup rules.

3. Tab to Options button and use your spacebar to open this up.

4. Exporting and Importing Rules will open up which you should hear about importing and exporting message rules.

5. Tab around and you will hear Export and Import options, select Export.

6. It's going to ask what you would like to title this export as, and where you would like to save it.

 

Importing message rules:

 

1.            To Import message rules, do things just the same as above except when you get to the Import and Export message rules option, instead of using Export, simply use Import and navigate to wherever it is that you have selectively chosen to place your Export backup file and your rules should be successfully imported.

 

Importing a .PST file:

 

Here you can go to where your .PST file is located on your older machine, and just copy it to your clipboard to place it on a USB flash drive to get it to your new machine, or use Dropbox to accomplish this or once again, do it however you see fit. Then you can simply overwrite the .PST file that is already there and if you are asking yourself how I know you already have a .PST file on this new machine, as you stated, you already have Outlook365 installed when in actuality, you said that you had Office365 already installed.

 

So this .PST file is what you are wanting to overwrite and yes, this will have the various emails that you had upon your older computer once you overwrite the .PST file (just make sure that Outlook is closed during this overwriting of the .PST file).

 

.PST File Importing:

 

1. From the Inbox Alt+F for the file menu.

2. Arrow down to Info and press Enter.

3. Select your specific account and tab twice down to Account Settings... submenu and right arrow to Account Settings... and press Enter.

4. Now you should be on Email Tab and if you Control+Tab once you should be placed upon Data Files tab.

5. Tab down to Settings... and press Enter.

6. Now you will Tab down to where it's going to ask you which directory you are interested in using for your .PST file which you have copied to your new machine. So just find your .PST file here.

7. OK it and you may have to OK it again just don't recall.

Subject: [TechTalk] Transferring Outlook info to my new computer

 

Hi all, I have just bought myself a new notebook running windows 10. I have its setup which includes the office programs. Now I am wondering if there is an easy way to transfer all my emails over to the new computer without having to download them all. Both computers are running windows 10 and whatever outlook comes with office 365. Is there also a way to transfer my rules to the new computer or do I need to set these up again? I’m pretty sure I can do the address book myself because I have done this in the past.

 

In the past when I have changed computers, I haven’t had many emails, so it didn’t worry me downloading them onto the new computer. I have all my email programs to only delete off the server if deleted from deleted items folder. So I have all my emails on the server so I can download them again however I have a mixture of read and unread messages in my current folders so if I download them all again I won’t know which I have read and which I haven’t.

 

Thanks for any help.

From Shaz.

Re: constant hard drive activity

Blaster
 

Howard, You may just be downloading updates or patch fixes from
Microsoft in the background. But, if you have the anti virus program
Avast installed on that PC, I'd put that at the top of the list of
suspects. I've had to remove that program from several machines over
the years for that very reason. For some reason, on my Win 10 PC, it
did exactly what you described. However, on my Win 7 PC, it
exhibited signs of " disk thrashing" which would make the hard drive
spin up to full speed and max out my CPU meter on and off all through
the day. This is known and apparently acceptable behavior for some
Avast users and yet others never have such issues or at least never
noticed it. . If you've installed any new programs lately, I'd start
there and work your way back.

HTH,
Blaster

Hi all,

All the time that my computer is running, I hear this noise that the

noise about once per second. Is there a way that I can find out what's

activity is causing unnecessary wear on the components.

Thanks.

Speech history in Narrator

Sharon S
 

Hi all, I am just wondering if there is a speech history in Narrator Like there is in Jaws? I’m asking because I received a strange message when putting my power cord in a little while ago. I was on a zoom meeting at the time so didn’t pay close attention to it but would like to know exactly what it said encase it was important. I haven’t done much with that computer since so I am hoping there is an option to look back at the message. I tried unplugging and plugging back in to hear the message again but that didn’t work.

 

Thanks for any help.

Almost got it bro! The correct address scheme will be like this:

9175551212@...

With TMobile, you can't go over the 160-character limit; if you do, your SMS
will be truncated and, in some cases, it may bounce back at you! AT&T
breaks the text up into several smaller chunks; as such, the 160-character
is not a factor on its network.

Later sir, I promise to be in touch privately, we've got quite a bit to
catch up on. God bless!!

With the newer version of Dropbox, you can choose to either have them stored in the cloud, or on your computer. To choose this focus on the file or folder and hit the application key and go down to Smart sink.

The JAWS feature to prevent loss of beginning speech

I didn't keep the message from Mike, so I'm sending this information in a new thread. I'm sorry I deleted it but at the time, I wasn't thinking I would answer it. But on further thought, I realized I have important information for nonJAWS users or those using an earlier version of JAWS.

There is a small utility that keeps your sound card active if it times out when it isn't doing anything. Here is a download link for the utility, which is called Silenzio.

Re: Pontes media downloader

Steve Matzura
 

There are two versions of PMD. Version 3.0 is the latest one, but some folks don't like it because the accessibility and controls are different than older versions. Version 2.1 accesibility and controls are a bit more intuitive, but if you're picky about file formats for downloading audio-only content, you may not like it as much. I've been on 2.0 since forever and have never minded the loss of extra features. 2.1 is an obvious update to my old friend 2.0.

Re: Dropbox Question About Saving Shared Files

The Dropbox Web page says I now have three copies, but the only one I can find is the one I manually downloaded, then placed in a folder. I tried the shell directory trick, but it's not there. Where else could Dropbox think it put it? This is totally mystifying to me that I can't figure this out.
