Re: New PC setup?

Thanks Brian. That was my thinking as well, to get rid of all the
extra drivers and bloatware I don't really want to have lying around.
But if that can be done through control pannel then I may take that
approach rather than reinstalling the whole thing from scratch as I'm
not as comfortable yet with working in a pre-installation environment.
I would like to learn, however. I'll check out the file you linked for
sure! The possibility of wiping everything and starting with a
completely clean slate before starting to use it also has a bit of
apeal. What are your thoughts on system imaging and tools for creating
those and user backups?
I'm also curious as to where narrator starts working. When I press
f12 for the boot menu, can narrator be started there? Or do I have to
wait until after I've selected the boot media?

That being said, there are many who do a completely clean reinstall of
Windows 10 immediately because it gives you the cleanest, most "de-bloated,"
version of Windows 10 that's available.  And given how good Windows 10 has
become in having the correct drivers to pull from in The Great Microsoft
Driver Library in the Cloud because most manufacturers are supplying them
with same, the worries from the old days about driver reinstalls are, for
the most part, unnecessary.

It's really a matter of personal preference, and mine is not to do a
completely clean reinstall, while others prefer to do one.  Neither is
wrong, and which is better is entirely a matter of perspective and personal
preference.

As for the manufacturer recovery partitions, for the most part they're
obsolete almost upon arrival.  Once you've had a couple of Windows 10
Feature Updates, driver updates over time, lots of software installations,
etc., it makes no sense to go back to whatever was on the computer when it
was new.  If one were to need to do a "nuke and pave" at a much later point
in time then a completely clean reinstall with the install media for the
current Windows 10 release version is the only way to go.

That is but one of the reasons why having a backup plan that includes a full
system image as well as separate user data backup(s) should be considered
standard practice if you care anything about both your time and your data.
It's so much easier to restore from a backup than to start from scratch if
something goes really wrong.

Yes, and ATT is no longer activating new connections on ADSL. So, hopefully we will get that tech phazed out here.

That is simply incorrect.

ADSL, which is still alive and well, offers the worst speeds ever after satallite. I am pretty certain ADSL is the worst possible internet you can buy after satallite. The max speed over ADSL2+ is 24 mb down, and 1 mb up. And that assumes living right next to the cabinet and having best wiring. In practice,  the max speed is 12-16 mbps. I was stuck with ATT dsl because of an exclusive contract signed by the apartment complex, and even audio calls wern't relyable because regardless of the download speed, the upload was 1 mbps, which actually is 0.8 or so. And there are people who have it worse

There are many situations (one of which was already described, the presence of a multi-WiFi network rich operating environment) that has the potential to have significant impacts on WiFi performance on heavy traffic channels (and older hardware isn't trying to seek out empty channels).  Ethernet never has this issue.

The above being said, I absolutely agree that trying to describe throughput is somewhat an exercise in futility.  I always use the example of either a series of pipes and hoses delivering water, where the fastest flow you will get in the whole collection is determined by the narrowest constriction in that series, or of a bucket brigade where you have individuals who are significantly slower "somewhere in the middle, somewhere" and this is what limits the ultimate number of buckets you get, and at what speed, on the end where the water gets thrown.

I'm constantly trying to explain to my partner that the reason that Zoom, for instance, is slow and flaky is almost never going to be the result of something on his machine, which has way more than enough firepower to handle it all at once.  It's because, somewhere out there in cyberspace, there's a hitch in the gitty-up of the data coming to and going from his computer to the meeting hub and/or participants.  The same is true when the browsing experience in general slows down.  And there are times where the end you're trying to reach from wherever you are happens to be down entirely.  All of these things happen, both singly, and sometimes in combination.

Re: New PC setup?

Hamit Campos
 

Ah I thought you were gona go Aurora. But any who. Sure well I was going to say once all is installed and setup I'd go to the Dell support site grab once it detects it your service tag and express code and make notes of them. Especially the service tag it's the easier 1. Download all drivers and so on. As to the cleen install for the person that asked why do it. Well to each his own. But here's why. Some and let me stress that some would rather clean up the PC and just have it as just a Windows pure PC. Trouble with this is sure you get rid of the trial of Macaffy sure you get rid of what ever else in this case Dell may have installed there. But oops, say bie bie to to the Siberlink software for your DVD writer to play DVDs or BDs if you got it with a BD writer as I did. Point is you choose. But there are things configurations and other reasons I would not personally do that. Again as I said before to each his own. Another thing I'd do if you were to adjust the sleep plan for instance, is make notes of the original settings. Now I know most hate Windows Media Player. I use it because of SRS Wow. So I made notes of the original slider settings for that too. As for the recovery partition. True it's there but Dell to make you spend an extra 20 bucks doesn't as I'm sure you've noticed give you your Win 10 DVD. You'd need it to use that partition me thinks. Brian if you've delt with a new Dell starting from 2014 please let me know if I'm wrong here but I remember this being the case with the Inspiron 3847 tower I replaced with the XPS. Other than that I'd just watch your self where you save stuff. Just remember to where you can choose the data drive. Or when you download things if it asks you where you want to save choose the Data drive where possible again. If you use ITunes relocate your library to that data drive if you want. Remember that's where things get put away. That's that for now. If I think of other stuff I'll let ya know but I think this is where I'd start.

Subject: [win10] New PC setup?

Hi all. I just got my new Del XPS 8940 gaming desktop today, and am going to set it up tomorrow. IS there anything I should be careful to do, or not to do? I haven't set up a new pc in years, so any help is appreciated. I've also been told that a smart thing to do might be to immediately do a clean windows install before really doing anything with it, but I also have no idea how to really go about doing that. Is the whole process for both set up and clean install accessible using narrator if I use the headset jack which I assume will work without me having to prompt it? I would just hate to accidentally lose sound in the middle of it with no sighted assistance around to help. Thanks!
And any other tips I didn't think of to ask about are welcome too!

Most of the Dell computers come with a recovery partition that will allow you to reinstall the original manufacturers installation of windows with all of the specific drivers

Hi all,
I have the below instructions for removing a password for a local
account.
I don't see the checkbox to uncheck use a password.
I just hear the user account, add and properties which doesn't give
the info listed below.
Think they may have changed things in the latest version of 10.

Open Run command.
In the Run dialog box, type
Netplwiz
press Enter.
You will be prompted with the User Accounts dialog, select your user
account first and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a
user name and password to use this computer at the top. Click Apply
button to see Automatically sign in box.
On the "Automatically sign in box" confirm your credentials and then
click OK. Restart the computer and check.
be absolutely certain that you have entered the correct password for
the account in question. If you want to be really safe you could
create a second local account before doing this so that you have a
backup way to get into the system should you fatFinger your password.
There is also a good article outlining this option and a registry
hack (which I don't recommend) on tenforums entitled, Sign in User
Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup.

You can totally remove the pin/password, which I really don't advise
doing.

To do that, go to control panel, then users.

The better method, for security sake in my opinion is to keep the
password, but just have it log you on automatically.

To do this, you can set it up through the auto logon dialog. To get
there, go to the run dialog with windows+R, then type in

control userpasswords2

Then hit enter.

This dialog should be quite self explanitory, but if you need help,
let us know. Be very very very careful when putting in your password
here for the system to log you on. If you do this wrong, and you're
the only user account on the system, you'll lock yourself out forever
more unless you use hacking tools to get yourself back in, but I
won't go there for legality reasons. The reason is, it'll be trying
to put that mistyped password in, and rejecting it, thereby not
giving you a chance to do anything more.

I have a friend who had Windows 7, and he did this very thing, and oh!
God, what a mess it was! We got him back in, but if I told you how,
I'd have to kil ya. LOL!

The point is, be careful. As long as you are so though, you'll be
just fine, and it'll do exactly what you need it to do.

Hi. Although I usually have pretty good luck with wifi, I will used a wired connection when it is available. My experience has been that wired connections are more stable.

That  is strange even the better dsl speeds now a days should at least get 50 or better.  AT least that  is what iwas told. I am on cable through  comcast x finity and that they have just pushed the giga bit speeds in my neighborhood  and I really like it.spectrum with cable offers   200  that is what hey have been advertising lately, an then there is a 400 in the sspectrum  offering up which cost you about $90 or so and that  will get you  at least half of gigabit speed better then what you have.inquire about that and se if that will help you out .  I think that  all these dsl  copper wires are being phased out for fiber and 5g LTE connections going forward .

New PC setup?

Clement Chou
 

Hi all. I just got my new Del XPS 8940 gaming desktop today, and am
going to set it up tomorrow. IS there anything I should be careful to
do, or not to do? I haven't set up a new pc in years, so any help is
appreciated. I've also been told that a smart thing to do might be to
immediately do a clean windows install before really doing anything
with it, but I also have no idea how to really go about doing that. Is
the whole process for both set up and clean install accessible using
narrator if I use the headset jack which I assume will work without me
having to prompt it? I would just hate to accidentally lose sound in
the middle of it with no sighted assistance around to help. Thanks!
And any other tips I didn't think of to ask about are welcome too!

Re: how to chrome cast from ms edge in windows 10

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Hamit,

           Pretty much.  There is a sort of isolated casting tab/menu that comes up that will allow you to pick the device to cast to, which may be the only one available.  The first time I tried it after everything was there it took a few moments longer than I expected for it to find my Chromecast device.  Were you to cast, the actual cast control button then appears in the controls on the browser itself, to the right of the address box.

Hi all,
I have the below instructions for removing a password for a local
account.
I don't see the checkbox to uncheck use a password.
I just hear the user account, add and properties which doesn't give the
info listed below.
Think they may have changed things in the latest version of 10.

Open Run command.
In the Run dialog box, type
Netplwiz
press Enter.
You will be prompted with the User Accounts dialog, select your user
account first and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a
user
name and password to use this computer at the top. Click Apply button to
see Automatically sign in box.
On the "Automatically sign in box" confirm your credentials and then
click OK. Restart the computer and check.
be absolutely certain that you have entered the correct password for the
account in question. If you want
to be really safe you could create a second local account before doing
this so that you have a backup way to get into the system should you
fatFinger
your password.
There is also a good article outlining this option and a registry hack
(which I don't recommend) on tenforums entitled,
Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup.

You can totally remove the pin/password, which I really don't advise
doing.

To do that, go to control panel, then users.

The better method, for security sake in my opinion is to keep the
password, but just have it log you on automatically.

To do this, you can set it up through the auto logon dialog. To get
there, go to the run dialog with windows+R, then type in

control userpasswords2

Then hit enter.

This dialog should be quite self explanitory, but if you need help, let
us know. Be very very very careful when putting in your password here
for the
system to log you on. If you do this wrong, and you're the only user
account on the system, you'll lock yourself out forever more unless you
use hacking
tools to get yourself back in, but I won't go there for legality
reasons. The reason is, it'll be trying to put that mistyped password
in, and rejecting
it, thereby not giving you a chance to do anything more.

I have a friend who had Windows 7, and he did this very thing, and oh!
God, what a mess it was! We got him back in, but if I told you how, I'd
have to
kil ya. LOL!

The point is, be careful. As long as you are so though, you'll be just
fine, and it'll do exactly what you need it to do.

Hello,

 

To be clear, WiFi 6 does not use different channels than WiFi 5. WiFi 6E will, but those routers aren't available yet. So, if you have WiFi 6, you will see pretty good speeds, I can get 850 megabits plus, but that requires me actively managing which channels I am using, increasing my bandwidth, making sure there is no radar nearby stealing the channels I choose to use most of the time, etc. Routers with default settings aren't actually that good at managing connections, but WiFi can work great depending on how you manage it. Still not as good as wired, but with 850+ I don't notice the difference. Moreover, when running speedtests, ping times are no different wireless as they are wired, for me anyway. This may depend on the connection and the quality of router used, but for me, I see no difference.

Ah I wandered why it said baking. That’s okay I did what you suggested by the way and now I guess the addon is installed. So now I guess were I to wana cast something I go back into that menu and go to that cast menu and now an actual menu with our TV should come up now?

So, if you have WiFi 6, you will see pretty good speeds, I can get 850 megabits plus, but that requires me actively managing which channels I am using, increasing my bandwidth, making sure there is no radar nearby stealing the channels I choose to use most of the time, etc. Routers with default settings aren't actually that good at managing connections, but WiFi can work great depending on how you manage it. Still not as good as wired, but with 850+ I don't notice the difference. Moreover, when running speedtests, ping times are no different wireless as they are wired, for me anyway. This may depend on the connection and the quality of router used, but for me, I see no difference.

I’m in total agreement with Bryan  on  this one.that  is why we just ran a bunch of cat 7 wire from one end of the house to  the othe end o fthe house, as we just got gigabit from comcast x finity and so that  is  why we figure that  the wifi would not be able to handle those giga bit speeds and so that is why we just ran a bunch of cat 7 wire through the attic  and then split the cat 7 with a t connection and a switch hub and now we have the best of both worlds.   If we need to have HD 4k tv watching on a high band width they are hard wired where as all the smart speakers an that  sort of stuf that don’t need that  much band width are  on  wifi,  but our ubiquity amplify router now supports  wifi 6 so that  is  the channel that the wifi is on and that way there  is no one  on the street  that   has  wifi  6 and that way we don’t have any interfereance for the time being .

I disagree

I have no idea with what, as what you've said is just echoes precisely the objection I raised.  There are plenty of times where ethernet connections will be faster and more stable than a WiFi connection even could be.

For those who are in a "non-mobile" situation where whatever device they're using doesn't move, and the option to use ethernet exists, it's worth using it rather than WiFi, even if WiFi is an option.  There are times where even a stationary machine is in a part of the house/building where running cable is just not going to happen, and when that's the case WiFi is a godsend.

Hi all,
I have the below instructions for removing a password for a local account.
I don't see the checkbox to uncheck use a password.
I just hear the user account, add and properties which doesn't give the info listed below.
Think they may have changed things in the latest version of 10.
Open Run command.
In the Run dialog box, type
Netplwiz
press Enter.
You will be prompted with the User Accounts dialog, select your user account first and then uncheck the option labelled Users must enter a user
name and password to use this computer at the top. Click Apply button to see Automatically sign in box.
On the "Automatically sign in box" confirm your credentials and then click OK. Restart the computer and check.
be absolutely certain that you have entered the correct password for the account in question.  If you want
to be really safe you could create a second local account before doing this so that you have a backup way to get into the system should you fatFinger
your password.
There is also a good article outlining this option and a registry hack (which I don't recommend) on tenforums entitled,
Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup.
You can totally remove the pin/password, which I really don't advise doing.
To do that, go to control panel, then users.
The better method, for security sake in my opinion is to keep the password, but just have it log you on automatically.
To do this, you can set it up through the auto logon dialog.  To get there, go to the run dialog with windows+R, then type in
control userpasswords2
Then hit enter.
This dialog should be quite self explanitory, but if you need help, let us know.  Be very very very careful when putting in your password here for the
system to log you on.  If you do this wrong, and you're the only user account on the system, you'll lock yourself out forever more unless you use hacking
tools to get yourself back in, but I won't go there for legality reasons.  The reason is, it'll be trying to put that mistyped password in, and rejecting
it, thereby not giving you a chance to do anything more.
I have a friend who had Windows 7, and he did this very thing, and oh! God, what a mess it was!  We got him back in, but if I told you how, I'd have to
kil ya.  LOL!
The point is, be careful.  As long as you are so though, you'll be just fine, and it'll do exactly what you need it to do.
