Yes, any type of account will work.

You could set up a separate account just for PayPal money, as was suggested in an earlier post, but your regular savings account will work fine too.


Re: PayPal Question

Hi Everyone:


Thank you all for explaining how PayPal works.  I think I'm going to go ahead and cancel my account.  The reason I was asking is because I was going to try becoming a free lance transcriptionist and now I just got confirmation that the websites that you work for are telling me that there software isn't compatible with screen readers and they aren't doing anything at this point to rectify it.  So I guess I will definitely be looking into something else.  Again, thank you so much.

As for security concerns using your banking information, that is up to you. Millions of people use Paypal and tie it to their banks.

Hi,

Yes sir that's usually my practice but on the rare occasions when I've forgotten a few times or when a site like zedge.net just won't for the shift enter and insists on opening in the same tab or so it seems when viewing an uploaded ringtone i did note that it wasn't working and just wondered if it was just me losing my mind or if it was broken or actually had never been a thing in that browser.  I thank you for replying. Some days I wonder about the old brain over here 😁

Thanks once again, I appreciate you.

Take good care.

To follow a link, use shift enter, not enter.  That will open the link in a new window.  Once you are finished and want to go back, close the window with alt f4.  You will be back in the other window, where you left off on the other page.

Hi,

I could have sworn this might have been covered before but for the life of me I can't recall where or what the fix might be. I am finding that alt left arrow no longer works to take you back a page when browsing in Google Chrome.  Is there another means by which to accomplish this or is there a way to make this keystroke function again? Did it used to work in Chrome or did I just think it did.

Thanks in advance for rescuing me from my apparently feeble mind.

Re: PayPal Question

They just make the payment to your email address, and it stays in your PayPal
account until you transfer it to your savings account, since that the bank
account that you have on file.
You could get the PayPal debit card and spend from your PayPal account if you
like.

Hi Group:


I would like some information about a PayPal account. I have had one for a

was wondering how does someone pay you? I don't have a checking account or a
debit card. The only thing I have is a savings account and I'm not
comfortable putting my information on there. I was looking into doing
freelance transcription on some websites and they will only pay you if you
have a PayPal account. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I
have seen some conversations on this list and I think several of you have an

Re: looking for $8 per month track phone plan

The only ones that use the other type of network or Verizon and Sprint. Every other company, uses GSM. So if you are taking a phone from the AT&T, and you want to go to cricket, you will be perfectly good to do so.

You may be asking about this plan. It is for a basic phone and is for text, talk, and lite browsing.
$8.99
30 SERVICE DAYS
30 MINUTES
FOR TALK, TEXT & WEB

Track phone is a company. Your question doesn't apply. You can use all sorts of phones with Track Phone, but you purchahse a service plan from them.

If you just want to do talk and text with a prepaid plan, this plan is much more expensive than the one I use. My TMobile Plan charges me three dollars a month for half an hour of talk, thirty textx, or any combination that adds up to three dollars. After that, I am charged ten cents a minute for talk and ten cents per text. In other words, ten cents a minute.

Re: Sluggish Boot on Windows 10

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Sluggish Boot on Windows 10

I'll discuss different approaches you may want to take to eliminate the inconvenience.  Some may be obvious, some may not, or you may not want to do them.
 
I don't know what might cause the problem.  Of course, you can shut down and turn the power off as you found.  I'm not sure how Windows presents options in the shutdown dialog these days.  If there is just a hibernate option, you should be able to shut off power.  But if it is a sleep/hibernate hybrid, don't do it, And never in sleep.  In other words, if you are going to turn power off at the socket, unless you are sure you are in hibernate, or you have fully shut down, don't do it. 
 
You shouldn't have to deal with the problem often.  You should be able to leave the computer running for a while without starting to get performance problems.  How long may depend on how you use the computer and perhaps on things I don't know about.  But you can experiment or just try a good amount of time such as four days or five days.  You may shorten or lenghthen the time, depending on results.  You don't even have to bother turning off the power.  When you reboot, do it at a time of day when you are doing something else like eating or going to bed or something else.  If you reboot the computer often, such as daily, that is unnecessary.
 
Or, if you really want to reboot daily, or shut down daily, you may do so, leave the power on and not bother turning the power off, and boot again when the delay won't matter because you will be doing something else.
 
And let's say you want to reboot when you intend to use the computer, such as when installing a program.  Shut down, turn the power off, as you found solves the problem, then boot after turning it on again. 
 
In short, you could try to solve the problem but doing so at this point my be disruptive and waste enough time that you may just want to leave things as they are.  It can be easily and conveniently worked around.
