Hi! Go in your downloads folder and make sure nothing is selected by pressing control + spacebar. Press the applications key or shift + F10. Then arrow down to group by,  then Expand it and choose none.
 I don’t think you can prevent windows from doing this. If you can, I don’t know how.

Re: folders on windows10

Bill White
 

Hi, Heather. I recognize what is happening. If you just open the folder in Windows Explorer, you won't hear, today, last week, a long time ago. But if you open it inside the Mail for Windows program, then you will hear those headers. The only way to stop this is, take everything out of the folder, then put it somewhere else. Now that the folder is empty, go back inside your mail program, go back to that folder, and perform the operation suggested. In other words, Press the Application key, Arrow down to group by, and press ENTER. Arrow down to None, and press ENTER.

 

Now put everything back into that folder, and it won't do it anymore from inside the mail program.

Yes, thank you. But if I try to attach a file, it starts that whole thing again. It is from the folder that I was able to make not say this but, it happens now if I go to attach a file from that folder. Is that strange or what? Heather

Hi Heather.

 

I would have replied sooner, but I had to find the right folder to figure this out.

 

Get to the problem folder and open it.

 

With nothing selected, hit SHIFT+F10 to get to the context menu.

 

Look for Group By. It has a submenu, so open it.

 

Now you want None. Select that, and things should be better.

 

If you have any questions, let me know.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Hi Heather.

 

Try this.

 

Get the problem folder the way you want it.

 

Now, while in that folder, hit ALT+V, Y, O

 

You’ll be in folder options.

 

Hit CTRL+TAB

 

Now I don’t remember if you have to TAB, but you want to apply this folder’s settings to all other folders. Windows will ask if you really want to do this. If so, press OK.

 

I don’t know if this will fix your problem, but if it’s what you want, it’s worth a try.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Re: fixing partitions on an external hdd

Richard Kuzma
 

Here are the commands to use with diskpart
To open diskpart do a windows key and the letter r as in run
Then type in diskpart and press enter
Now the uac may come up and just do an alt and y to allow it.
Here are the diskpart commands I believe you will use
list disk
this will list all the disk drives in the system


select disk and the number
selects the disk with that number


list partition
will list partitions on the selected disk only


select part and its number
selects the partition with that number
shrink by itself
will shrink the partition to its nearest four gigabyte available size


dele part
will delete the selected partition

be extremely careful as these commands do not allow you to confirm them, so if you select the wrong partition by mistake and erase it is gone.
Let me know if I can be of any more help

Hi,

Using: latest W10 Home 64 bit and April Jaws 21.

Can someone help me with a problem removing partitions and more than one region of unpartitioned space from an empty external 500 GB hard drive?

Casper 8.0 tells me there is 465.7 GB available on the drive and it has more than one region of unpartitioned space. If a partition is created then the largest space is used resulting in a partition of around 50 percent of the space available on the drive.

I wish to have the unit as just one big drive so how can this mess be fixed?

The W10 Disk Management was also tried but got nowhere.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Tom

I remember, some time ago, being told how to get nvda to read the
label field which are commonly found in many web forms in which
there are "radio buttons," "Spin Buttons," etc in which one makes
changes and it's really nice to know what one is changing.  The
best way to describe this situation is you dearly wish the darn
label was spoken along with what needs to be changed or passed
over if it is presently correctly set.

I remember once someone telling me some key sequence when
using nvda that lets you sort of peek outside your present box and read
the label that belongs with the data one is sitting on.  I have
just simply forgotten what it is other than it is not changing
from Forms to Browse mode.  I did try that with no improvement
this time however it is a very good thing to know.

I should save this when I find it out because it slipped
my mind until I got in to a setup form for a piece of
communications gear today that simply lives on those spin buttons
and some of those things are things one doesn't want to spin
unless it is really necessary.

I remember it was some sort of escape sequence that lets
you read the label without losing one's place.

Thanks.

A process is a program in execution - that is, loaded into memory and potentially running. They can be listed in Task Manager or by the PowerShell get-process command.

Re: Reseting PC?

Hi Clement.

1.  press control+escape.  you will land in the windows search box.

2.  Type "Reset" without the quotes, then press enter.

3. You must be sure to land on the "Get started on resetting this pc" button.  Just tab or shift tab to be sure you get to that button.

3.  Press the space bar on that button.  You will get to another dialog and land on the "Keep my files button" whose help message will tell you that it will keep your files and delete the apps and settings already present and which you don't want.

4.  Press the space bar, and your pc will get going.  Good luck. Cheers!

There really is no need for one. Just set it up, choose your folder and use it from windows explorer. Everything will be accessed from the context menu. I do suggest turning on the smart sync though.
