Hi Melissa,
 
Another option than has been suggested:
1. NVDA, Control, + K, for Keyboard settings.
2. Tab to the, speak command keys, checkbox & uncheck this box.
Take care.

Re: Please remind me A bout a command forNVDA

Gene
 

This message is long but it contains information many people may find useful. 
you haven't saved the setting.  If you ever change a setting and want to go back, use the command NVDA key control r.  That is the desktop layout command.  I don't use the laptop layout and don't know it.  That will revert to the saved configuration, the one you were using before. 
 
If you do accidentally change something in NVDA, don't close the program.  By default, in a very poor decision, NVDA automatically saves any settings that have been changed on exit.  Then you will have to find the command and change the setting back.  I turn off save settings on exit.  That avoids accidentally saving settings I have no intention of saving.  To change this setting, open the NVDA menu, NVDA key n.
Down arrow to preferences and press enter.
You are on general so press enter again.
Tab to Save configuration on exit
It's a check box.  Uncheck it with the space bar.  Then press enter.  The dialog closes and the setting has been changed.  But to make it permanent, save it with the command control NVDA c.  Now, if you close and run NVDA, the setting will be used permanently. 
It's far better to use the command NVDA key control c to save settings when you intend to.  This allows you to experiment with whatever you want, a different synthesizer, a different punctuation level, changes in browse mode, anything you want to change, and not accidentally save something because you forget and close the program. Or if you shut down the computer or reboot, I believe NVDA would save these changes as well since Windows shuts down programs as it shuts down or reboots.  If you turn off save on exit, as I described above and use the command NVDA control c when you intentionally want to save a setting permanently, you will avoid all these possible problems.
 
Remember, control NVDA key r if you want to revert to your already saved settings.  Control NVDA key c if you want to save settings you have made.

Re: outlook express for windows 7 issue

Gene
 

outlook Express doesn't have folders that are stored messages folders.  These are folders that are created by default when you install the program such as inbox, etc. and are not associated with any account.  If you look through the folders in
Windows Live Mail, you will see an item named stored folders in the tree view.  you are told to store messages here that you want to keepp on your machine and not on your e-mail server.  That's so, if you are using an IMAP account, you can store messages in these folders and no longer keep them on the e-mail server.  but I also use these folders to store mail and not have the messages in any of my accounts.  I don't use IMAP but using the storage folders means that, even if an account becomes corrupted and has to be deleted for some reason, my mail will be safe.  Because the mail is in a completely inactive part of the program, it is quite safe.  Is it as safe as storing mail outside of the program?  It may not be but it's safer or much safer, I'll let those who know more technically, discuss that.  Outlook Express doesn't have storage folders.

Messages may be safer in other e-mail programs but I still don't trust them to be as secure as outside of the program. 
 
I should add that that probably doesn't apply if you save them in storage folders.  Windows Live Mail has storage folders in the program to keep messages in and that's where I keep mine.  Backing up folders you keep messages in is a good idea because, just as anything else you don't want to loose, mail should be backed up as well.

Do you know how to delete that folder?  If you close the program, delete the

Or if you don't care about keeping messages you delete as a safety measure

Re: outlook express for windows 7 issue

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Dennis,
 
The steps below were written for XP, but the steps work the same for Windows 7 except the navigation to the folders where you're saving the messages to is different.
Using Outlook Express below is 1 set of steps on how to save an email to the
Recipe folder in your My Documents folder as an example.  Create the folders you want to save to in advance.
1. With the email you want to save highlighted / selected, press Alt + F,
for the file menu, arrow down to save as, & press enter.  Or press Alt + F,
then press the letter, A.
2. A dialogue opens & you can change the name of the message here.
3.A. Tab 1 time to the save as combobox & right here this is where you
choose which format you want to save the email as.  Your choices are Mail
*.eml, Text file *.txt, & Unicode Text File *.txt.  Personally I save email
in both .EML & .TXT formats but, you can't save them in both formats at the
same time so, you have to save the email 2 times, once in each format.
3.B. We will use the .EML format for now.  So, you are in the save as
combobox, arrow down to Mail *.eml, tab 3 times to the save in combobox,
arrow up or down to the My Documents folder, with the My documents folder
highlighted,  tab 3 more times to, folder view list view.  This is a list of
folders in your My Documents folder.
4. Arrow down to your Recipe folder & press enter to open the folder, now
tab to the save button, & press the spacebar.  Your recipe has now been
saved in your Recipe folder.  If you want to save this same email as a text
file, your Recipe folder has already been selected so, you don't have to
navigate to the Recipe folder.
5. Press Alt + F, then press the letter, A,  tab 1 time to the save as
combobox, press the letter T, for text file or arrow down to the Text File
*.txt option, tab 1 time to save, & press the spacebar or enter.  When you
are in the save as combobox you can use first letter navigation instead of
arrowing to your format of choice.

Go look in your recipe folder to see if your messages have been saved the
way you want them saved.  Saving email outside of your email client takes
some practice & getting used to but, it is well worth the extra work.  If
your email client was to become corrupted for whatever reason, having your
email saved outside you won't lose your emails.  Personally I don't have any
emails saved in Outlook Express.
Take care.

Re: TWBlue problem

Also, as a workaround: Until something better by way of oa direct solution comes around, if it ever does; each time you run TWBlue, i.e., from the desktop icon or elsewhere, always use Shift+F10 to get to the Run As Administrator option and press ENTER on that. Then, TWBlue should open for sure. (I am basing this on my current experience with the program, which is as I type receiving tweets for me.)

Then when you've done that, i.e., removed extra characters (including the
trailing space there), open your Windows (or File) Explorer and navigate to
the TWBlue.exe file which is in the list view of the TWBlue folder in the
C:\Programs folder. You'll need to run twblue.exe as Administrator, and
allow it (in the UAC, say yes). There could be a problem with some recent
Windows7 update, or, same in Windows10.

If there is a character after the quotation mark after .exe, delete the

On the problem case, did you try Run as Administrator, with

TWBlue? And if you use the User Account Control, you'll need to give
TWBlue

Last week, when I ran the program for the first time in a good while, in
response to another list member who had a similar problem to what you're

to Donate Now; and then, a prompt to update to the latest version. (The

Re: TWBlue problem

Flor Lynch
 

Then when you've done that, i.e., removed extra characters (including the trailing space there), open your Windows (or File) Explorer and navigate to the TWBlue.exe file which is in the list view of the TWBlue folder in the C:\Programs folder. You'll need to run twblue.exe as Administrator, and allow it (in the UAC, say yes). There could be a problem with some recent Windows7 update, or, same in Windows10.

Try going to the TWBlue icon on your desktop and pressing ALT and ENTER to
bring up the icon's properties.

Under the Shortcut tab you'll see the target as:
"C:\Program Files\twblue\TWBlue.exe"

If there is a character after the quotation mark after .exe, delete the
extra character and press OK

Re: outlook express for windows 7 issue

Gene
 

The term storage folders, as I use it, refers to folders in Windows Live Mail that are not part of any account. 
 
If you want to store messages outside of the program, You can create them wherever you want.  You could have them directly on the c drive if you wish or you could put them in a folder on the c drive named Outlook Express.  Or anywhere else you wish. 
 
You could do other things, as Carlos said, such as back up dbx folders and still keep the messages in Outlook express.  But one way or another, as with everything else, if you don't want to loose something, back it up.

I would suggest using save as to save them in folders you have outside of the program.  Keeping some messages shouldn't cause problems.  Keeping hundreds or thousands of messages, as some people do, is asking for trouble in Outlook express. 
 
Messages may be safer in other e-mail programs but I still don't trust them to be as secure as outside of the program. 
 
I should add that that probably doesn't apply if you save them in storage folders.  Windows Live Mail has storage folders in the program to keep messages in and that's where I keep mine.  Backing up folders you keep messages in is a good idea because, just as anything else you don't want to loose, mail should be backed up as well.

Re: outlook express for windows 7 issue

Carlos
 

The big difference being that Windows Live Mail stores messages as individual EML files, where as Outlook Express stores all messages in each folder in a single DBX file.  So with Outlook Express corruption of a single file could mean losing all of the messages in that folder.  Also, EML files are just plain text files with a different extension so they can be accessed using other programs if necessary.  DBX files are a proprietary format which for the most part can only be accessed by Outlook Express and some specially designed programs.

Hi guys,


I've been hesitant to answer every since Chrissie presented the issue on another list.


But, I seem to recall that there is something in properties which needs to be cleaned out.


Does this jog anyone's memory?

On the problem case, did you try Run as Administrator, with Shift+F10, on
TWBlue? And if you use the User Account Control, you'll need to give TWBlue
permission every time, unless you lowered the percentage quite a bit.

Last week, when I ran the program for the first time in a good while, in
response to another list member who had a similar problem to what you're
having, for a few times it wouldn't run, but then I noticed, first, a prompt
to Donate Now; and then, a prompt to update to the latest version. (The
program wouldn't run, I guess, until I dealt with those prompts. Having
ddealt with them, all was well with my TWBlue again.) (I run Chicken Nugget,
and like it.)

Hi Folks

I wonder if someone can help me.

I have two laptops running Windows 7 64 bit both of which have the TWBlue
twitter client. both have been running it successfully until yesterday when
one of the machines would not run the program at all, either from the
shortcut on the desktop or from the TWBlue.exe file.

I am running Microsoft Security Essentials so wondered whether this was
causing the problem, so temporarily disengaged it, having done a full scan
which said the computer was clean, for what that's worth.. I have tried
uninstalling TWBlue completely and re-installing it, which seems to go fine
until I'm asked to run TWBLUE when, as usual absolutely nothing happens. If
I click on either the desktop shortcut or the .exe file again absolutely
nothing happensthe

It still works fine on the other machine which is from the same company
running exactly the same system and configuration.

Could it be possibly that MS Security Essentials has thought it suspect and
quarantined it or something, and if so, in case that is the problem, how do
I tell MSSE that it's a ligitimate program?

I tried the windows troubleshooting program which informed me that TWBlue
was incompatible, so I tried running it in compatibility mode, again still
nothing. to be fair, I don't find the troubleshooter particular intuitive so
may well have missed something. yes I know I could run something like
chicken Nuggets but since TWBlue runs perfectly on my other machine it would
be nice to have it running on both. Btw, the fresh installation was from
the TWBlue website so should be okay.

thanks for any help.
