Header Section in Thunderbird

Akshaya Choudhary
 


Hello,
Can anyone help me with the headers in Thunderbird?
I can back TAB to the normal header section in most mails and can access the information like “FROM” and “SUBJECT”. But, with the newsletters that I receive, it doesn’t work. Back TABBING leads to me going through several links present in the mail. I have also tried pressing Ctrl+End and going to the end of the mail, then TABBING from there to reach the header section. But, it doesn’t work. Again, this problem seems to be specific to the mails with large number of links. I have tried the above methods in both “NORMAL” and “ALL” header views. The problem persists regardless.
I wish to access the header section as right clicking on the “FROM” section gives you an option of filtering mails, namely “FILTER MAILS FROM”. If anyone could help, it would be great.

Regards

Hello guys,
If your PC or browser is in the high contrast mode, then your phone won't scan the QR Code for WhatsApp.  This is consistant for almost all the browsers. Turning off the high contrast mode should make the scanning work.

Also make sure the screen is maximized.  I know having the screen maximized with Jaws is important, with NVDA I'm not sure about since I run a program that maximizes my windows automatically.

You can do it with wget. It's a bit geeky to set it up with all the required parameters in a batch file, and then you have to schedule when it starts and stops recording, but yes, it's quite doable.

I use the virtual desktops all the time and I've never created one that was blank. I think his desktop icons got hidden which is an easy fix. No restore necessary.

It sounds like maybe you might have accidentally created yourself a Virtual Desktop or more (which may be blank and seem like nothing) and this may be why you could not get to your Desktop? This is just a guess on my end though. There are keystrokes below that will show you how to go to these Virtual Desktops to see if this is the case, but if Windows+Control+D doesn't sound like anything you'd accidentally hit, then maybe this guess does not apply at all.

Another idea is System Restore.

Windows + Ctrl + [Left][Right]
Switch between virtual desktops

Windows + Ctrl + D
Create new virtual desktop

Windows + Ctrl + F4
Close current virtual desktop

Re: Can't See My Desktop

Hey Lynn: I'm assuming you are using windows 10?

I wonder if your desktop icons have become hidden some how. Try this. Go to the desktop and unselect everything by holding the control key and pressing spacebar. Next, press the applications key. You should hear, view sub menu. Right arrow to expand the sub menu and arrow down. Make sure the show desktop icons is checked.

Hope this helps.

Re: checking how much time is left in a file when playing in vlc media player

Bharat
 

whenever you want to do that, you may switch to the Touch cursor with
JAWS by pressing Insert+shift+Semicolon & explore the screen from left
to right with the arrow keys & it should tell you the elapsed time as
well as time remaining. Once done, you may press Insert+semicolon
twice & it should bring you back to the PC cursor.

Thank you,

Bharat.

Do you have an Amazon Alexa?  If so, you can enable puzzle of the day.  There is a cross word puzzle every day.  There is five clues and you have to guess the word and then at the end, you can guess the theme.  All of the words have this in common.  Some of them are easy and others extremely hard.  Hope this helps.

Re: Another bad Windows 10 update

Obviously losing all speech under any circumstances can be a problem. But,
being prepared is important. A smart phone can put you in touch with a
volunteer who can look at your PC and help get one out of a jam. An OCR app
can often read enough text to let you know what's going on. And, before
anyone starts to bitch about the cost of smart phones, a perfectly suitable
Android phone can be had for $150-200. Plus the cost of a data plan from a
second-tier carrier. One doesn't need the latest flagship to take advantage
of the vast number of apps which assist us in so many ways. IMHO, not to
avail oneself of these apps on a budget phone is placing yourself at a huge
disadvantage. But, it's all about choice.

Here is more information. the problem may not be effecting many people but
as a member on one of the lists I sent a message about this to points out,
in these coronavirus times, you really don't want to take a chance on having
problems with your computer that may require social contact to repair.

It isn't clear to me how many users are affected. The problem has gotten
attention from places like Kim Komando, Bleeping Computer, and Windows Next.

If you do a search for
cumulative update KB4549951
you can see many articles.

Under normal times, it might not be so important to discuss this situation
but it seems more important now.

Re: WhatsApp for PC

Thomas N. Chan
 

I do the qr code scanning quite often because I need to swap with two laptop with the same register whatsapp number.
I use on android and iPhone. You need to face your back camera onto the screen. My room is always n the dark too. So long the screen is turn on enough, it should be able to pick up the qr code. Hold it steady, move your phone angle right or left, all its about how you do it.
Once you get it working once or a few times, you will know the angle to do it. Personally, I got my colleague to help me to aim and I remember roughly where to aim and I got it working most of the time.

Pretty simple, really. First, I launch my WhatsApp desktop on my PC. On my iPhone, I entered the settings for WhatsApp, then swipe right till I come to WhatsApp Web Desktop, enter that and swipe until I come to "Scan QR code" button. With my back camera facing the monitor from a distance of twelve to fourteen inches, I align my iPhone SE to the bottom left side of the PC monitor. Double-tap on the "Scan QR code" button on the phone and I'm set to go. It's night time here and pitch dark. I find I still can sync my phone with my desktop even with the room light off. By the way, except for Internet Explorer, a check just now showed the WhatsApp Web Desktop worked well with the latest versions of all my other browsers, namely, Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and even my Avast! Secure Browser which is accessible with JAWS but not NVDA. Hope this helps.

Re: talking pe for windows server

Thomas N. Chan
 

Did you try to drop to command prompt or put a startup script with the following command

net start “Audiosrv

 

unless it has been disable, it should start the audio services which allows some sort of audio for narrator, nvda etc.

 

I am yet to manage a physical windows 2016 server, but I do virtual ones from amazon and asure but concept, should be the same.

But seriously, if you have a portable copy of nvda, it shouldn’t be a problem if you have enable audio service, you can run with command or put onto a script to start it.
