Hi John,

I did create a script some time ago which makes it possible to include your own portable utilities on the USB drive and even add shortcuts dynamically at startup in the PE.  For more information, review the comments in the file named
shortcuts.ini.example

Hi Carlos,

 

Not sure whether you will know, but wanted to incorporate Drive SnapShot into the TWPE. I tried it by just placing the Snapshot64.exe file in the root of the USB and it seemed to work, but wanted to try and incorporate it as an installed piece of software. Is this possible? Read the documentation, but couldn’t really find anything that helped. It may be that placing the file in the root is the only solution, but I thought if anyone would know an alternative it would be you (smile).

 

Many thanks.

 

John.

JAWS18 & lag

Smiling?
 

Since the release of JAWS18, I’ve noticed a lag at times with no particular software, just a lag from time to time and no, no patterns that I’ve  noticed anyway of having whatever software(s) open and running causing such lags. So I pretty much use JAWS17 without these so called lags. Wondering if any other JAWS users have experienced anything similar to what I’ve briefly explained above?

Hello list,

So I  haven’t done this in many moons and  thus don’t remember how I did it last time. Does anyone know how to convert an XML file of RSS feeds to OPML?

I don’t recall it being overly complicated, but I’m stumped. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t as simple  as renaming  the file  extension. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

You can use my WinPE images, but you have to use the image that matches the version of Windows on which the backup was created.  For example, if the backup was created on Windows 7, you would have to use the Win7PE image.  I don't have any images based on Windows 8/8.1, so you're out of luck if the backup was created on either of those versions of Windows.  Also, while others have reported successfully restoring such backups, I have never personally tested this myself so I cannot vouch for it's reliability.  I would recommend using third-party imaging software instead such as Image for Windows,

Drive Snapshot,

or Active@ Disk Image Lite

which is free and is also included in my WinPE images.

Re: Configuring Outlook 2016 Using NVDA or JAWS

Carolyn Arnold
 

I would suggest that you get Microsoft Disability to help you. They have mine now, where it reads like Outlook Express did. One computer savvy person told me that I couldn't get that feature in Outlook. Well, when Disability was fixing something else, they got that right, and I didn't even ask for it, because I thought I couldn’t have it.

Number is: 800-936-5900

Bye for now,

Hi Group,


In my running battle with the ribbons in Microsoft programs, I am trying to learn if it will be possible for me to use Outlook 2016 at some point as my default e-mail program. I am trying to learn enough about it to customize it to my liking.


Can I display the status line at the bottom of the screen so that I can see number of unread messages and total number of messages?


Can I display a tree view or list view of folder to be accessible using
the tab and shift tab keystrokes?


Can I display the address bar in the main folder window along with the
folder tree so as to easily access my address listings?


Where do I look under the ribbons for these settings? I can't find any
of them so far.


These are just a few of the question I have as to how to customize
Outlook and make it similar to programs like Thunderbird and Outlook
Express.

Re: Intro and a question

Actually the last update I released was in February 2016. Considering that the Microsoft PE has been made accessible and will soon be made available to the general public, it may also be the last update unless I can come up with a good reason to release another one. Also for the sake of clarification, WinPE is not a talking Windows installer. It can be used for that purpose, but it is not the only use for a PE or even the originally intended use.
