using bluetooth on my laptop

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I see I have bluetooth on my windows 10 Dell laptop but how would I pair a bluetooth headset with it? I've paired bluetooth devices before, and the headset I want to pair with the laptop is apparently already in pairing mode when I turn it on so I just need to know how to prepare the laptop and then how to pair the two devices.

Thanks.

Troy


Re: accessing system volume information on Windows 7

Joe Giovanelli <joegio100@...>
 

Good Morning,

I had the same question and I received the following information. It works flawlessly.

Joe Giovanelli, W2PVY


Here is how to go to System Volume and adjust any parameters and have those adjustment carry over between computer runs:

1. Open up your Run Dialogue by using the Windows key+R keystroke.
2. Type exactly (what is below) and press Enter
mmsys.cpl
3. This should honestly take you to your Playback Tab where your various
speakers are available.
4. So you will want to ControlTab once to the RecordingTab where you will
adjust your microphone accordingly and OK it when finished.

How do I get rid of the spam Sendspace popup ad notifications?

Peter Spitz
 

I have a paid Sendspace account and use the Wizard to download files
but I keep getting these popup notifications from Sendspace with spam
ads like How to Emtpy Your Bowels Every Morning and stuff like that.
Since I'm a paid Wizard using member, I don't understand why I'm
getting this crap.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The one thing about pcloud I like is that it shows up as another drive in “this pc”,  or my computer depending on your win version.

Hi, I was doing some work and signed in to dropbox with a new device
and found that dropbox is only allowing up to three devices unless you
sign up for their plus package for $9 / month and you get 2 tp of
space.  I'm wondering what else is out there and what you all are
using now? I'd like to keep all my devices able to access the files,
but I not really want to pay $9 per month for this as I don't need it
that often.

Hi Vicki,
We need some clarification here,
What do you mean by "System Volume Infromation"?
"System Volume Information" This is a folder on each drive on your computer,
and not to be confused with
"System Volume Control"
which does what the name  implies.
It is important to use the correct terminology when asking for help, to
prevent a lot of mis-information.
So, what can we help you with?

The folder just called Programs is where 64 bit programs are installed by Windows, at least by default.

win-eyes 9.5 q about punctuation.

Penny Golden
 

I just put in my last upgrade of window eyes on my win 7 computer.  Anyhow, I used to know the command to toggle punctuation on and off.  I only need to see punctuation when I'm trying to do some proof reading.

Does anyone know the toggle in window eyes 9.5?

I'll find it eventually, but I thought I'd ask, so that while I'm looking, I can keep up with the proofing.

Best, Penny.

Thanks so much.

To be colloquial as you are, Yep, I knew you weren't no geek varment. 
 
The reason for the Programs X86 folder is because if a 32 bit program is in that folder, a 64 bit version of Windows knows to run an emulator so 32 bit operations are translated into 64 bit operations and relayed to Windows in usable form.  So the program isn't actually running in 64 bit Windows per say, but operations in the program are made accessible to 64 bit Windows.

NVDA and Eset

Hello all, has anyone else had problems with NVDA not working with ESET?  I'm using ESET internet security, but when I try to use it with NVDA, all I get is a blank window and every time I tab, it only says Unknown.  Is there a setting I need to change in ESET?  Thank you.

From what I've tested, none of the older eloquences are compatible with NVDA2019.3 and above.  I had to download the CodeFactory version and although it's not as smooth as the older eloquence synthesizer, it works pretty good.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
