Re: Help needed regarding setting security options in Gmail

Mike B.
 

Hi Duke,
 
Here you go:
In your Gmail account settings, have you enabled the use of less secure apps? If you were to create a new Gmail account today and tried to set the account
up in the Outlook desktop app for instance, it would be blocked until you allowed the use of less secure apps. As for the exact process, here are the steps
if you are using the basic html setting in the online Gmail interface:
 
1. Log into your Gmail inbox.
Note:  If you use the, Links List keystroke, Insert + F7, to find the links in steps 2,3 and 4 along with first navigation it'll make things go much faster.
 
2. Locate and press enter on the settings link.
 
3. Locate and press enter on the Google account link, and not Gmail account link.
 
4. Find the, Security link, and press enter. 
 
5. Navigate by heading using the letter, H, until you get to, heading level 2, Less Secure App Access.
 6. Now down arrow to find an, On link, to toggle on the use of less secure apps, it could also be a checkbox.
Note:  I'm not sure if there's a save settings button or not, but it wouldn't hurt to look.
 
Finished.
 
Again, the steps above apply if you are using basic html in the web interface of your Gmail account. If you are not, I’m sure you could Google the steps
otherwise. 
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

Hi guys,
I have encountered a problem lately. I have outlook express on my
windows 7 laptop that I have been using until a bout a couple weeks when
I started using my desktop which also has windows 7 but with mozella
thunderbird. Being a newby in thunderbird, thereare certain things that
i do with outlook express that I don't how to carry them out in
thunderbird. So, yesterday I went back to my laptop to do those tasks in
outlook express only to find out that google is blocking me from
accessing my account stating that it does not allow a less secure third
party application to access my account. I actually have two mail
accounts. the main one which I have configured on both my laptop/outlok
express  and desktop/thunderbird has no issues. my second account which
is only configured on my laptop/outlook express  is the one being
blocked now. I tried to configure it in thunderbird on my desktop. The
same issue persisted. It was blocked due a less secure third party email
client. I also tried to tell google to accept less secure applications,
but to no avail. Any Ideas please?
Thanks in advance
Douk

I recently helped a friend with this issue. It turned out that the
selector switch on the side was broken. We copied the files onto a new
SD card and all was well.

You might want to check the switch on the side of your sd card. It's just
a
sliding switch, and sometimes they get changed when you're pulling it out
of
the streem.

It sounds to me as though that means a defective card, just as it does a defective thumb drive if there is no protection adjustment that works or is offerred.

Re: edge

For the person having trouble locating Groups, do not use the same
website you used in Internet Explorer. Type the following and you will
be able to have a similar experience as you did in IE:
mbasic.Facebook.com

You can use this in either Chrome or Edge and it works just fine.

And, right there, you have your answer.  Many, many sites will not even
allow entry with IE these days.  Others, and it looks like FB is one of
them, will allow entry but when any link is triggered will force the use of
a more secure browser maintained to current standards.

I avoid FB like the plague, so I really can't help you there.  But FB has to
work in all the major browsers, so what you're looking for but have been
unable to access still has to be there somewhere.

Re: Desktop pc with jaws

Allen West
 

You will certainly get a variety of opinions on this, because this is
a personal preference. I tend to buy Lonova and Dell computers. Make
sure your computer has at least 8Gb of RAM. Your processor should be
an I5 or faster. I have come to prefer solid state drives. My most
recent computer has a 500GB SSD.

I don't recall which list I saw that on, but this was discussed a number of days ago and two or perhaps more people reported the same thing. And this happens even when they don't use a shortcut or the run dialog but go to the Facebook directly\ in the browser.

To tell the truth, I'd be shocked if Facebook itself is forcing Edge.

In virtually all cases, though there are some very rare exceptions, opening of URLs in a browser will occur in whatever browser you have set as the default web browser in Settings, Apps, Default Apps.

Microsoft did, long ago, switch its own "out of the box" and "as a result of certain updates" setting for default browser to Edge. I changed that to Brave on my own system.

Every once in a blue moon, though, I will have certain Microsoft webpages force a URL they open to open in Edge.

My guess is that the "when I launch IE" part is what's critical.  Internet Explorer is to be generally avoided these days, and it does not surprise me that various websites (probably more than just Facebook) will open links activated in Edge rather than IE when IE is in use.  There's also the possibility that using the mobile version of the site on a computer could factor in.

You should test if this is the same if you open Facebook in Edge, or Chrome, or Firefox, or any other currently fully-supported and security compliant browser.

All I can report sir is my default browser is chrome, but when I launch ie, go to m.facebook.com it opens up in edge.

I, at times get this message: The website you were trying to reach doesn't work with Internet Explorer - Office Support.

I don’t mind chrome, I just can’t log into fb with chrome.

To tell the truth, I'd be shocked if Facebook itself is forcing Edge.  

In virtually all cases, though there are some very rare exceptions, opening of URLs in a browser will occur in whatever browser you have set as the default web browser in Settings, Apps, Default Apps.

Microsoft did, long ago, switch its own "out of the box" and "as a result of certain updates" setting for default browser to Edge.  I changed that to Brave on my own system.

Every once in a blue moon, though, I will have certain Microsoft webpages force a URL they open to open in Edge.

Always remember that computers are just glorified light bulbs - they rarely fail in continuous use and usually go pop when turned off and on.

Re: I can't erase books from my Victor Reader Stream.

Hi Carolyn. You should be able to press the number 3 key. It should ask you
if you want to delete the book, and to press confirm to delete it. What
happens when you do this?

The subject says it. I took the card out and was able to erase one. But
there is this one that simply will not erase.


What can I do, please?
