locked Re: blank line reading by NVDA


Security is also another thing.

A lot of breaches happened because of the updates not being as they should be.

Saying that, I actually do want to get a third party shell that I can use for windows which is like explorer.

The windows explorer shell is a little unstable at the moment.

If not replace the shell entirely, then some third party file manager I can use for serious shell work when explorer decides to be just that little bit cranky.

If I can get something simple and low cost that would be good.

Do such things exist?

I'd like an alternitive especially when the windows shell starts to misbehave.

Hey Zara! Are you afraid of change?  The reason I’m asking you this. If you are and you are sayig you like xp. Trust me I’ve been there!  I was not so scared to go windows 7. But I was afraid of ten. I’m here on ten and still trying to adjust!  My 7 box sound card burned out. So did some of my usb ports.  That 7 box was going down the tube. Now I’m on ten.  I try to do things like I did with 7. Because I forget this is win ten.  It takes getting used to. You really need to let xp go.  I say this because Rosemarie is right one day your xp box wil bite the dust.  It will badly slow down on you it may not go on the web very well.  Trust me Zara I’ve been there. With my xp box it would not go on IE quickly. I had to give it to a sighted person.  Not trying to scare you Zara.  Reallity is you have to move on like it or not.

Hi, Zara,


Not trying to be mean but will you still be thankful when you can't use your computer anymore because of out-of-date programs?

i always appreciate developers of opensource softwares.

i always pray for them even in my five times daily obligatory prayers!

i am grateful to God that created me in the time of technology.

i always pray and request divine infinite mercy and blessings for developers of my favorite softwares, and i always emphasize my appreciation towards them.

for most my favorite programs, including firefox, nvda, and thunderbird, i am satisfied with the versions that i have and select to use those versions forever!

By God,

were I given all the seven heavens

with all they contain

in order that

I may disobey God

by depriving an ant

from the husk of a grain of barley,

I would not do it.
