Re: Notification Chevron in the System Tray/Notification Area

Hi Cheryl,
 
You only need to turn on the items that you want to show in the system tray, steps below.
1. Windows key + I, for Settings, then tab 1 time to, System.
2. Navigate to, Personalization, press enter, then tab 1 time to get into the list of options.
3. Down arrow to, Taskbar, press enter.
4. Tab several times to,Select which icons appear on the Taskbar link, press enter.
5. Tab through these icons, & press the spacebar to toggle or turn off / On.  If an item is checked it's, On, if it's unchecked it's, Off.
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

I have a feeling I am coming in at the middle of a conversation and I apologize if this has already been discussed. I have a few items that are in the chevron overflow area that I would like to actually have placed in the main systems tray. Is there a way to move them to that? Thanks and I apologize for my ignorance.

A bit of help with getting started with Karen's-Replicator please

Larry Higgins
 

OK folks, I'll take the chance of once again looking like a dunce, and maybe even figuring it all out within the next hour of posting this appeal for assistance. And please, if you aren't interested in helping, but only expressing  irritation in one way or another, do me the kindness of just sitting this one out.


I have RTFMed, or at least what could pass for one, namely, the help, but still can't figure out just how to work with the scheduler. What I want to do, just to get started with backing up at intervals, is to set up the app to transfer/copy files from my hard drive's download folder, and backing up to my external drives corresponding download folder every ten minutes. I would like to keep it this way for a day or two, both until I figure out how to work with thing, as well as deciding just how often I would like to pace my backups in the future.


Now in the interest of not wanting to clog up the list, as well as continuing to embarrass myself, I hope some kind person will contact me off list.


All help will be gratefully appreciated.


Sincerely,


Larry


Windows 10 issues - please help

Mária Orovčíková
 

hello list,
after doing some system updates and restarting the laptop, I got the following error:
"Error initializing audio."
Sighted person told me that windows launched, but there are no sounds.
I was going to reinstal audio drivers, but I found out that neither USB ports nor internet connection are working, so I haven't found the way how to reinstal drivers.
Please, is there any other way how to make it work?
THE laptop CD/DVD drive is not working properly and I cannot use external CD/DVD drive because ports are not working.
The only thing I have available at the moment is my dad's laptop.
Are there any other options such as transfering setup files from one laptop to another without internet connection and working USB ports?
Thank you for your help in advance.
Maria

You can also just type “system information” into the windows search box and your system summary will appear. It includes a faira mount of data displayed in a tree view.

That's a completely new one on me!  By the way, laptop users, most of you will not have a dedicated Pause key.  On many (but not all) laptop keyboards the Pause key is the FN+Right Shift Key, so the shortcut becomes WinKey+FN+Right Shift Key.   If your keyboard happens to have it somewhere other than Right Shift, and does not have a dedicated Pause Key, then you'd still use WinKey+FN plus whatever the location is on your particular keyboard.

Re: Just checked my SSD to see how full it is.

Hamit Campos
 

Ah okay. Thanks. Yeah it just seemed strange it was what did I say in the end 677 of 219? The first numbers were the 1 TB data drive. The 1s of interest for the whole PC locking up mid message and stuff are 677 GB of 219 GB of the 256 GB SSD. Just because someone said that they red someware that you should keep an SSD half empty. Though I don’t get how that would relate to ram. I just thought it did because of the timing when my XPS started doing the locking up thing.

Hi Hamit.  Your disk space isn't as acurate as you would expect because as your disk gets formatted for installing windows, data such cache and other formatting gets written to your disk in addition to your windows files.  These take up space, so your disk of say 1000GB has already got a few gb of it's space occupied.  Also you must take into account that if 1MB = 1024KBS and not 100KBS as is usually expected, then space taken up by formatting and windows is far more than expected.  So if your installation occupies say 2GB of space, then 2048MB of your disk space has already been taken, hence your perceived discrepancy.  And last but not least, different Operating Systems, for some reason have slight differentials to their way of calculating disk space and applications sizes.  Mac and Windows are just two such examples.  Hope that helps.  Cheers!

I don’t think Belarc allows you to change the format in-programme, but no reason why you couldn’t just hit save in the browser and select plaintext.

Belarc Advisor is a fabulous utility, and I use it all the time when I have a greater interest in software on the machine than hardware.

I find Speccy much better if it's strictly hardware and OS related specs that are needed, and Belarc Advisor much better when you want a software inventory.

By the way, and not pushing Speccy any more than I have, but the fact that it can save its report in plain text format does make it significantly easier for many screen reader users to deal with that report afterward.  I honestly don't know whether Belarc Advisor has that too, as I've never tried to get anything other than the report it generates that is presented in your default web browser.  If anyone knows, please share.

Dave,

It wasn't introduced in 2004 specifically, as I think 1909
had it, too, but you're seeing grouping by date and probably only in
the Downloads folder. It should not happen "by default" anywhere else
in File Explorer. If you search the group archive for Downloads and
group by or "old order" or any of a couple of other phrases you will
find multiple posts, spread out over a long period of time, giving the
steps to turn grouping off if you so desire. My advice is that you do
not turn it off for a while and try to get used to it. I hated it at
first, but it didn't take long for me to change my mind since in
downloads I'm most often looking for the stuff I've most recently
downloaded, and the new arrangement keeps newest toward the top.

Someone else will have to discuss new changes for 2004
from 1903, as I've been on it so long I have no recollection of 1903
specifics and, to be perfectly honest, most of the "latest and
greatest" that Microsoft has been adding to Windows 10 since Day One
are things I just don't use.

No restocking fee if you return it in the allotted time period. I returned
one a couple of years ago and they sent me a paid return Label. I then
reorder another computer and it is working great.
I can't believe that they would want you to replace the logic board
yourself.

Don't know if Dell is like HP but if you return a laptop there is a
restocking fee which is something like 15 percent of the value of the
laptop.

I finally contacted Dell support and offered to replace with a new one.

But it is strange that, Dell instructed me to going through a
diagnostic mechanism and reported that the pc has no hardware issue.

He suspected that the high ram issue is related to the apps I am running.

I told him that, I am using the same set of apps on a older machine on
2013, and it even cost fewer ram memory.

Then he suspected it may be related to logic board issue and suggested
me to replace the logic board.

I said, if I wait for the logic board replacement, it may exceeded the
7day of return or replace requirement, then I request a replacement.

I would call 'Dell and get a Return Authorization Number before
returning it. I have found that Dell is very good in honoring their
warenty.

Hi,

As my old pc has broken down all at a sudden, I bought a new Dell
desktop computer with

8GB ram

Intel 10 generation core i5

250G SSD and 1TB HDD


I found that my new computer will always run out of ram

I simply open a few apps like one firefox, several folders and a
notepad ++

and my NVDA will soon became very unresponsive

According to resource monitor the physical袃ram is around 9x and
virtual ram is also 3xG

I have already manually increased the virtual ram, disabled possible
performance hindering default apps, etc, but the problem seemed not
fixed.

Only today I have already manually forced turn off the computer
because of not responding nvda for 3 times or more, and this is only
my third day of using this new pc.

I feel really frustrated , do any one can give me any useful advice?

thanks,

William
