I have the same thing on WLM but not the same on Outlook, which is the client being discussed.

On my computer, using windows live mail, under the inbox, there is something called all mail.  Actually, you arrow down once, and it says gmail closed.  You right arrow to open it, then you arrow down once, and it says all mail.  Pam.

My understanding from Al is he's following steps to find the All Email folder and I believe that's only found on the Gmail website.  If he's talking about the email client then it wouldn't matter and I misunderstood him.
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Are you talking about two different things?  I believe the original question
is for using an e-mail program.  You appear to be commenting on using the
web site itself.  And for quite some time, it has not been necessary to use
simple HTML on the web site.  I haven't used the web site much so I'm not
saying it isn't easier to use the simple HTML choice on the web site but I
see no reason that it should matter when using an actual e-mail program.

Howdy Al,

I don't know if this makes a difference with the newer email clients but, in
the past you needed to have Gmail set to, Basic HTML, view and not the,
Standard, view for screen reading programs to work correctly.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Folder does not currently exist, I also
tried creating it but it is still empty. Maybe it will populate over time
and if not, no big deal.

Thanks,

Are your directions using the Outlook program in MS 365 or on line with
Gmail? I use Outlook on my PC within MS 365 and do not find the all mail
folder you mention.

My Mail accounts in Thunderbird have folders entitled "All Mail" in which

If you are using an MSAPI account, not a POP3 account, there will be an all mail folder in your e-mail program if there is one in your GMail folders on the site. Or I should say, there should be one. I don't know why it isn't being seen by Al.

But I'll ask if you, Al, are using POP3 or MSAPI. That may provide the answer.

Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

I read a bit about the important folder awhile ago, but I don't remember what I read. It wasn't of too much interest to me. Having said that, it is important to know that if you have multiple appearances of messages in Google folders, there is actually only one copy so you don't have to worry about using exxtra space. Its just that GMail displays messages in multiple locations if you want it to.

If you delete a message that appears in multiple locations from one location, I don't know if that deletes it from others or just the code that causes it to appear in that specifric location. Discussing such matters may help people manage their GMail mail better.

How To Automatically Login In Windows 10

Want to quickly boot to your Windows 10 desktop by skipping the login
screen?
Would you like to avoid typing your account password each time you turn on
your PC?
You can configure Windows 10 to automatically boot to the desktop or
Start
screen.

The core benefit of configuring Windows 10 to automatically sign-in is
you
don’t need to remember the password, which also means that you save a
couple
of seconds during the boot. This, in turn, means that Windows 10 boots to
the
Start screen or desktop a couple of seconds faster.

The procedure to set up automatic logon in Windows 10 is very similar to
the
one in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

This method is applicable to both local user account and Microsoft
account.
In other words, whether you’re using a Microsoft account or local user
account, you can use this guide to enable automatic logon.

WARNING: Enable automatic logon only if you are the sole user of your
computer. If you often share your computer with others, others will be
able
to peek into your account without knowing the password.

You can follow one of the methods given below to turn on automatic login
in
Windows 10.

Method 1 of 2

Automatically logon without password

This is the easiest way to automatically login to Windows 10 without
entering
the password.

Step 1: First step is to open Run command box by simultaneously pressing
Windows logo and R keys (Windows+R). In the Run dialog box, type Netplwiz
and
then press Enter key.

Step 2: In the resulting User Accounts dialog, select your user account
first
and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a user name and
password to use this computer. Click Apply button to see Automatically
sign
in box.

Step 3: In the Automatically sign in dialog, type your password and then
re-enter the password to confirm the same.

Finally, click OK button.

Method 2 of 2

Turn on automatic sign-in using Registry

If, for some reason, you’re not able to configure Windows 10 to
automatically
logon by following the above method, please use this method.

Step 1: Open Registry Editor. To do so, type Regedit in the Start menu
search
box or Run command box and then press Enter key. Click Yes button when
you
see the UAC (User Account Control) box.

Step 2: In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Step 3: On the right-side, look for the entry named DefaultUserName,
double-click on it and make sure that your Microsoft account or local
user
account name is appearing under Value data box.

Step 4: Next, on the right-side again, look for the entry named
DefaultPassword. If the entry doesn’t exist, please create one by
right-clicking on the empty space, clicking New and then clicking String
Value. Rename it to DefaultPassword and enter your password in the Value
data
box. Click OK button.

Step 5: Finally, you need to enable automatic logon. To do so, on the
right-side (once again), look for the entry labelled AutoAdminLogon and
then
change its value from 0 (zero) to 1 (one).

That’s it! Restart your PC to see your Windows 10 automatically logging
into
your account without asking you to enter the password. Good luck!

Without a doubt, the second method is not as easy as the first one.
Have fun with Windows 10!
Russ

Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question about a new windows 10 installation

Hi all,

My laptop is with the geek squad right now and I’m having windows 10
reinstalled. They are supposed to back everything up for me because I
wasn’t able to do that myself before my problems started, but when I boot
up the machine goes straight into windows without stopping at a log-in
screen, will it still do that once the geek squad restores the backup and
if not what will I need to do to bypass the log-in screen?

Thanks, I hope that the backup will keep those changes but I doubt it
will.

Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

One more idea. I have two Gmail Accounts and in one of them, there is a folder called "important" which sometimes acts as an all mail folder. I know this sounds insane but there it is! No explanation.

Howdy Al,
 
I don't know if this makes a difference with the newer email clients but, in the past you needed to have Gmail set to, Basic HTML, view and not the, Standard, view for screen reading programs to work correctly.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Re: Deleting from Gmail "All Mail" folders

Yes I am also using Outlook on Office 365. For some odd reason, Outlook does not always download the All Mail folder on a Gmail account. But if you just create the folder manually, then exit and restart Outlook, it should populate the folder. I found this oddity some time ago when I first began using Outlook. It worked for me, so hopefully it will for you.

Hi all,

My laptop is with the geek squad right now and I’m having windows 10 reinstalled. They are supposed to back everything up for me because I wasn’t able to do that myself before my problems started, but when I boot up the machine goes straight into windows without stopping at a log-in screen, will it still do that once the geek squad restores the backup and if not what will I need to do to bypass the log-in screen?

Thanks, I hope that the backup will keep those changes but I doubt it will.
