Re: network problems

I think the option you are looking for is in control panel > network and sharing > change advance sharing settings

 

But I suspect if it was working this wouldn’t have changed

 

The issue probably lies elsewhere

 

Make sure the service Function Discovery Resource Publication is running

 

That may or may not be the issue but worth checking its running

Hi list

I have a home network consisting of a win 10 pc, a win 10 pro laptop and a win  7 pc ( which I’ve failed to update to win 10).The network has been operating quite successfully for a couple of years  using a common workgroup and appropriate advanced sharing options without any trouble. Recently however, following a number of normal updates the win 10 pro laptop is no longer visible to either the win 10 or the win 7 pcs. They however,are visible to  the win 10 pro laptop and their public folders can be accessed. I’ve checked the network profile and advanced sharing options on all 3 machines and they seem unchanged.

 

Googling the problem suggested that one possibility is that there is a make this pc discoverable” option within win 10 which needs to be enabled. unfortunately, even after much searching,I can’t find this button or the advanced options window where you are supposed to find it. Has anyone had a similar problem and found a way of solving it?

 

All the best

Hi Joseph,

The referenced message I saw from Yahoo did not state that they were closing
down the groups. It only stated that they would stop certain features of
YahooGroups itself but that messages would still be able to be sent, etc.

There was a knee jerk response to the subject of the message by those who

Re: Microsoft Windows 10 Virus Protection

Hi Austin and all,
 
I went ahead and ran the emergency kit scanner and it's a nice little program.  You can choose to have items that are found reported or removed, you can exclude files / folders along with a couple of other settings that are available.  I do need to say if you're using Jaws that whenever you tab and land on a blank / empty section / screen you need to use the Jaws cursor or possibly the touch cursor to read what's there.  This is absolutely necessary so you don't tell the program to do a task that you don't want the program to do.  In short, the program is accessible , but I would say not for beginners. 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

In addition, if you have a huge number of messages it's a huge waste of space, locally.   One virtually never refers to old messages with any frequency and the message bodies for same, when needed, come down on demand.

This is only "half true."   You are indeed correct that the master storage for IMAP email is on the server side, and that's why it can be kept in sync across multiple devices, because they're all looking to the server as the point of reference for what exists and if something new comes in, will reflect that, and if something is deleted will reflect that, too.

That being said, you do have messages, generally only recent messages (and your client can configure how long a period "recent" should be considered) in your primary folders stored locally, and for precisely the reason you mention - you'd have no access to email messages that have already been recognized as having been received if the bodies could not be fetched because you're offline.   You can also generally specify specific messages to be available offline in perpetuity as well.  I have never used any of these features even once, since I so very seldom do not have internet service and even more seldom need to find a message from several years ago on the rare occasions I have no internet.

Your e-mail address is completely independent of the access method (POP3 or IMAP) used to access it.  The access method you have been using, specifically if you have been using POP3, can affect what messages may be available via IMAP because POP generally involves local storage of messages and deletion of same from the server.

Every modern version of Outlook (and that's from at least 2010 and forward) will auto configure accounts to IMAP if the email service provider supports it and that is known via a database of service providers, the access methods they support, and the server and port settings for same.

One of the additional glories of IMAP is that if you decide to ditch your current computer or e-mail client there is nothing special that needs to be done to keep your messages (and, usually, contacts as well).   All you have to do is set up the account on the new computer and/or under the new e-mail client and everything automatically synchronizes to the server - which keeps everything stored.  You can also be darned sure that professional data centers are far more aggressive and consistent about backing up than any home user is, and many people don't back up their computers at all.  If you are one of those "many people" and are using POP3 you will lose virtually all of your old e-mail if there's no backup to recover from.

Hi,
It seems as if you have a older version of windows 10. older versions have issues updating to newer versions from my experience. What you can do, go to Microsoft website and download the ISO and it will work from there. Microsoft disability helpdesk may do this approach as well.

Re: I'm curious about Office 365, especially Outlook

James Bentley
 

I tried Imap about 5 years ago with WLM and AT&T.  I was using Windows 7 on 2 slower computers and 1 IPhone with a much slower internet connection than what I have now. 
 
My email folders were not stored on my devices.  If I was without the internet, then my emails were not available.
 
Is this just the way that Imap works?  Or, maybe I had something set up wrong or, a too slow connection.
Now, I have 2 fast Win10 machines and I will be trying with OutLook instead of WLM.  Maybe...
 
Do you know if I have to make changes at the AT&T web site to switch from pop3 to Imap?  Or, does all of that happen as I set up OutLook?  And finally, can I keep my AT&T email address?  I do not really want to have to change my address at more than 100 places.
 
Thanks for your opinion, even if you only answer 1 or 2 of these questions.

I don’t know how easy it is with WLM, but I have always been an Outlook user and find it not difficult to search for an email or a contact. I rarely go into Contacts except maybe if I want to look up a phone number because Outlook usually auto-completes email addresses from your contacts as well as others you have emailed in the past.

You could always get an Office 365 Personal subscription for a year or even pay monthly for a few month and try it out alongside Thunderbird.

If you have only a single computer and no other computers or mobile devices where you do email I guess you can continue to use POP, if you have more than 1 device I highly advise against it.

Hi all,

 

I’ve been a very long time user of first OutLook Express and then, Windows Live Mail.  But, WLM is becomeing more and more out-dated so I am considering checking out OutLook or maybe even Thunderbird. . 

I think I want to stick with Pop3 and A T&T if that is even possible with OutLook.

 

I use WLM more than any other program on my PC. I like all that it will do.  But Its just not stable on any of my PC’s any more.

 

With OutLook, is it possible to search through emails and folders with Jaws?  Is dealing with contacts and moving through email folders as easy as WLM?

 

Thanks for any opinions,

Re: I'm curious about Office 365, especially Outlook

 

Good choice and if you want to keep it long term you can switch to an annual subscription any time and save a bit.

I’m about 90% certain that I will buy the monthly plan at $7 per month.  It is the personal version but I can still put it on 5 devices with all of the benefits of Office365 including one terabyte of One Drive storage.  If I don’t like it, I am only out of $7 and some time.

Hi James,

I have use Outlook Express back in the day then switch to Outlook.  My opinion is Outlook is just about the same as Outlook Express. The only thing is Outlook has a few more bells and whistles. You can move around the folders very easy with Jaws. You can also search for emails with Jaws in Outlook. If you used Outlook Express then you will not have any problem using Outlook as most of the same shortcut and Jaws shortcut keys are the same. I have all my other emails from other sources come into Outlook and I have folders all setup so all the groups that I am on will go into there own folder so it does not load up my inbox. Workds very nice and easy to create  new folders and have groups go into them.

Subject: [win10] I'm curious about Office 365, especially OutLook

 

Hi all,

 

I’ve been a very long time user of first OutLook Express and then, Windows Live Mail.  But, WLM is becomeing more and more out-dated so I am considering checking out OutLook or maybe even Thunderbird. . 

I think I want to stick with Pop3 and A T&T if that is even possible with OutLook.

 

I use WLM more than any other program on my PC. I like all that it will do.  But Its just not stable on any of my PC’s any more.

 

With OutLook, is it possible to search through emails and folders with Jaws?  Is dealing with contacts and moving through email folders as easy as WLM?

 

Thanks for any opinions,

 

James B

OK, I didn’t know all of that stuff was there.  I managed to get rid of a bunch of junk.
 
Thank you Chris,

The easiest way is to open the action centre and select the notification which you want to turn off

Then just do a right click and select turn off notification

 

You could of course go into settings > system > notifications and turn them off there also

Hello,

 

I like some of the notifications.  I do not like others.  For example, my audio center is always reminding me that I have my microphone turned off.  Well, I want the mic on this particular PC turned off.

 

So, where do I go in Win10 to just turn off the notifications that I do not like.

 

Thank you,

duxbury producing computer braille from a Word file`

Hi all,


I hope this is on topic here, since I am unaware of a specific list for the Duxbury translation program.


I have been using DBT for a while and never seen this until this week. Earlier in the week, I pasted something from the web in FireFox and translated and embossed it. the resultant text was not readable. I finally figured out it was computer braille.


subsequently, I embossed other things, copied from pdf files or off the web, and the braille was Grade II Standard U.S. English, just as it should be according to my settings. Documents pasted from email also work.


Then yesterday, I wrote a document in MS Word that I needed for church this a.m. And when I translated and embossed it, I got the same garbage, computer braille. I tried pasting the document in to K1000 and then to DBT, thinking maybe there was something funky with the font. No luck. I also pasted it into an email, tried converting to a text file and then translating, all with the same unreadable result.


Still, if I type something into email now, with no settings in dbt having been changed, I get good readable U.S. English Grade II. does anybody have any idea what might be going on?
