Steven,

          That's correct.   Provided you have a Windows 10 system on which you can still log in, just having the ISO on your HDD and mounting it as a virtual DVD drive makes the feature update/repair install able to be kicked off using setup.exe from there.

           I imagine Joseph Lee will probably be aware of when the issue with USB drives and 1903 is officially fixed before I will, and will post about same, but if I do hear something definitive and nothing has as yet been announced here I'll be sure to do so.

Oh right, thanks Brian, so basically I can copy the .ISO to the local drive, mount it and run it from there.

If you hear at any stage that the fix has been pushed out, would you be able to let me know please?

I Can then re-cdownload and re-create the media?

 

I Found something very stragne the other day, I built a Lenovo laptop from 1903 usb media and after installing, the wireless card was detected etc but it was showing no networks to connect to.

I Tried three different builds.

When I went back to the 1809 build usb stick and installed from that, the wireless came up no problem and I could connect to my published network.

Steven,

             Yes, you are recalling correctly.   This issue is supposed to have been fixed but I still have not seen any confirmation that the fix is pushed out to the public yet.

              That being said, when this came about I knew I would have to find a workaround until the issue was fixed, and for my money the workaround is easier to do than using bootable USB media.   See:  Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Re: Logitech G613 Lightspeed wireless mechanical gaming keyboard

Pradip Chandra Sikdar
 

I have got mine 2 days ago and am enjoying a lot.
I have assigned different macros/shortcuts in the G keys. Specially, I have assigned Insert+F12 (say the time) in the G6 key which is situated in the left of the left control keys. That means, if I accidentally press the G6 key while trying to press the left control key, I can just hear the time. Also, you can assign nothing in the G keys which means, pressing the G keys will make no difference. But to assign the stuff, you need a sighted assistant.
I am trying to find the way to backup my macros so that, I can restore it in the future or I can send it to my friends.
If you are interested, I have assign my G keys in the following way. Note: I can change my mind any day and assign something new.
G1: the link of my local news paper,
G2: my broadband's login page,
G3: The shortcut to start JAWS (C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\2019\jfw.exe),
G4: stopping JAWS (Insert+F4),
G5: Youtube,
G6: Insert+F12 (say the time).
I have assign the shortcuts to start and stop JAWS because, my PC is used by the sighted person as well. So, they are loving the way to stop JAWS.
I have an external sound card which I use to listen song and doing my audio stuff. My internal sound card, which I have set as the default one is used to play the system sound, my screen reader and other stuff. A small laptop sound bar is attached with the internal sound card.
So, the volume keys and mute key of my keyboard is used with the default internal sound device. That means, changing the volume of JAWS and system sound can be controlled by my keyboard which is very handy.
The media keys works pretty well and I like the fact that, there is no more unwanted keys like launching the calculator, Email program, etc. Even the media keys are actual switches, not like membrane type thing.
The bonus goody (a separate mobile stand) is very cool. I wish the arm rest were detachable.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I have had the other logitech boards including the 380, 480, 780, 750, and all of them had their qualities, but this one is the best I think.

those 3 buttons are on the face of the keyboard, but above the 3 buttons to the right of f12. The left button, is not really a button but it looks like one. that is the normal / gaming switch, where normal is to the left and gaming is to the right. To the right the windows key will not operate, and it is where the six keys to the left of home row will operate macros which you will have to use the inaccessible software to set up.

The key to the right  of that switch is the key which interfaces the keyboard to the dongle which is inside the battery compartment. Inside the keyboard box is a little cable which you can plug the dongle into to bring it into radio range if you need, rather than just a hidden place on your laptop, out in the open for example.

The right hand key of those three is blue tooth connectivity.

Hold it down to make the keyboard pair with your blue tooth device.

I am using the G613 to write this message.

I hope this does help.

3. I do not understand the OTG cable and it’s function.
4, Where is the USB receiver hiding? I will be using this with my PC and refuse to use BT keyboards. I know that Logitech has a habit of putting the receivers in the battery compartment, which is often very difficult to open and I already discovered this one is no exception.

Subject: [win10] Logitech G613 Lightspeed wireless mechanical gaming keyboard
 

Hi,

 

I thought it would be OK to post a brief review here on the Logitech G613 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard since just as myself I assume others also are always looking for the “perfect” keyboard.

This Logitech G613 “Lightspeed” wireless mechanical gaming keyboard can connect to iOS via Bluetooth and to a PC using the supplied USB receiver which then let’s you take advantage of the “Lightspeed” 1 millisecond delay which is pretty impressive (if you connect to a PC with Bluetooth this does not apply and while it’s probably still just as good as any other Bluetooth keyboard, it sort of makes sense to make the most of this keyboard’s features).

I still use my trusty Logitech K780 at home where I have it connected to my laptop via Bluetooth as well as to my iPhone and Apple TV, but I bought the G613 for my main PC at work and I must say so far it’s getting pretty close to that perfect score.

Unlike most wired mechanical gaming keyboards this does not have all the fancy RGB lighting options which of course is fine for me. The one thing I am not super fond of are the 6 F1 through fF6 function keys in a vertical column down the left side of the keyboard with maybe half an inch of space between them and the left most keys like Control, Shift, Caps Lock, Tab, ` and Escape. But I also bought a wired Logitech mechanical keyboard and it also has them, most mechanical keyboards are designed for gamers rather than people who want a mechanical keyboard for typing. It takes a bit of getting used to not accidently pressing them. gamers can configure these keys as macro keys to perform whatever actions gamers want.

Apart from that the keyboard has a very traditional layout with nice spaces between the blocks of function keys, the inverted cursor T, the 6-pack with Insert/Delete, Page Up/Down and Home/End, of course the number pad and above that it has 4 more slightly lower media keys for Play/Pause, Stop, Rewind and Forward.

At the very top is a slider switch which locks the Windows key which apparently gamers like so they don’t accidently press it and Cortana/the search box pops up, then there are two buttons which switch between the USB Lightspeed connection and the Bluetooth connection and once the Bluetooth connection to the iPhone has been established all it takes is to press the Bluetooth button in order to switch to the phone and the USB button to switch back.

On the very top right is a large key which is a volume rocker, press the left side for down and the right side for up and beside that is a Mute button. Finally on the right side towards the back is a on/off slider switch.

The keyboard runs on 2 AA batteries and is supposed to give you 18 month of battery life.

There is a proper application key on the right side of the spacebar which works, but there is no Windows key on the right side which is something you don’t hardly see any more.

 

Logitech uses their own Romer-G switches and not Cherry MXswitches. The Romer-G are most like Cherry Brown, a nice distance of travel, but not hard to press and relatively quiet for mechanical keys.

They do take a bit of getting used to, but I quite like them. For those who want to read more about them, below is a link to a review from Tom’s Hardware:

 

Logitech’s Romer-G Switches – Are they any good?

 

The other nice thing about this keyboard is it’s relatively reasonable price, I paid $129.99 Canadian for it, believe I read that on a good deal you can pick it up in the US for as low as $70 US.

Wireless mechanical keyboards are not out there too much yet, I did find a couple more made by the company “Das Keyboard” but they are more expensive although I may order them from Amazon to test and if I don’t like them at least as much or better send them back. My other 2 computers at my store where I have a Logitech MK510 keyboard and mouse combo both start to show their wear on the keyboards and I want to see if using mechanical keyboards won’t change the fact that many of the keyboards which are mostly out there these days are typically done after 2 or at most 3 years of heavy use.

As with all mechanical keyboards keep in mind that the Logitech G613 is heavy compared to other non-mechanical wireless keyboards.

And one last thing which is nice, this keyboard has function keys which work as function keys out of the box and as much as I also like my K780, it’s a bit of a pain to have to install the not very accessible Logitech Options software just so you can change the function keys to behave like function keys instead of media keys.

 

 

Happy typing,

Sieghard

Re: making oneCore voices read more like eloquence

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi Josh. I have great news!

I know that inside this folder:
C:\Windows\Speech_OneCore\Engines\TTS\EN-US
In there, there are ini files, and in those .ini files are advanced
settings for changing how the oneCore voices read. I really want to
modify the settings to much lower values so the oneCore voices read
faster and much smoother like ETI Eloquence reads. But how do I take
ownership of the .ini files in order to save my settings? I really
wish Microsoft would put these advanced oneCore voice settings inside
a dialog box somewhere and we could change them globally for whatever
voice and languages we wish, then when the voices are reloaded or the
computer restarted the changes would take effect. I would use the
oneCore voices a lot more if I could greatly lower those numbers in
the file and as a result, have the oneCore voices read with much much
less pausing, like eloquence reads things.
Within the directory you specified, there is only one .ini file for U.S. English. If you take ownership of that file via its properties, Security, Advanced, Change Owner, you can indeed edit that file. I just did and quite like the results. However,, I assume that this file would be replaced with each Windows update.
Enjoy!

Hi, Marcio. When I downloaded TakeOwnership.zip, it says it’s for Win 7 and 8. Are you sure it works for Windows 10?

 

Thank you.

I have used a free utility call " take ownership" for taking ownership of some system files  when I did a hack to enable Win Mail on Windows 10. You might Google for this and see if that would do what you need.

I've downloaded this program, but never used it. It has lots of good comments so if someone wants to give it a try, check it here.

Re: Taking Ownership of System Files under Windows 10

 

Bill,
Are you sure it works for Windows 10?
Really  not sure but it should work since they keep advertising it on articles  related to Win 10. Anyway it won't damage your machine, the worst that can happen is that it won't work :)

there are two executable files inside. If this program works for Windows 10, which one do I use?
Good question. When I downloaded it, there was only one file. Maybe I downloaded another program? Let me see it.

Yikes, my bad! Wrong link.
This is the article from where I downloaded what works with Windows 10. Check it here.

Let me know if it works for you?
