Re: List of Utilities that Make Windows 10 More Like Windows 7

 

Wow, thanks for this list.

While I am not going to use these on systems I do admin on, its nice to know that even though I have to use a lot of extra third party hacks, my workstation will behave normally.

Hello Folks,

Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more like Windows 7.

Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/

Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow, cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter. Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.
http://www.noahcarver.com/files/tm_cfg_win8-win10.zip

UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works)
UBitMenu makes itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/

Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer, replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a 32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3". Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon Explorer ". The program should ask you to log off. Do so, Next, log back on... and boom. To uninstall, just run the program you ran earlier. You will be presented with a button that says "Enable Ribbon Explorer". Click it. Again, you should be prompted to log off and back on. Your Windows Explorer should look normal again.

Hope these utilities help you. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions on more programs to add to this list, please reply.

Re: Interfering videos while browsing

Laurie Mehta
 

If you are using that key combination for something else in Firefox that you had previously designated yourself, just go into the view menu and arrow to the reader view option manually and hit enter. Shouldn't that work for you even though you redesignated that key combination for your personal use?

To avoid this annoyance I go into
reader view as soon as I get to an article
I want to read.
That stops any video or sound popping
up.
Then there's a button at the bottom to
use to go back to non-reader view.

To go to reader view in the newest
firefox just press control+alt+r. In
older versions, go to the view menu by
hitting alt and then arrow up to
reader view and hit enter.

It seems that if text is on a web site with its class set to
screen-reader-text, firefox and the latest version of NVDA display that text

as one compound word. It does not do this with IE. This is under windows
7. I've yet to try 10.

The results of this bug can be seen on pages like
http://lanesaudio.com/examples where both the wordpress theme used, and a
tip about playing the audio on that page exists and is read with NVDA but

Hi list was finishing up a game chat on games galore and more. my NVDA was toggled speech mode off so I didn’t have a conflict with the golf game I was playing. when I snapped it back to talk saw a yes and no button am thinking it was app essentials. when I hit yes got an error downloading addon message. what do I do to update that windows 10 app esentials and make sure that update installs properly. I think it was because of the talking communities client and the kitchen game running that messed up the update.  will it prompt me again?

You can still buy Office 2016 as a standalone purchase (rather than Office

course when Office 2018 or whatever the next version is comes out, you
won't get that if you buy the full Office 2016, but in any case, NVDA works
with either variant.

Noticed that Best Buy has Microsoft Office 365 home edition on sale today
for $79.
Does NVDA work well with Office 365?
Thanks

I have a theory that its the isps that are trying to stop spam by doing some things like bouncing things from domains that send outlots of mail. No regard for mail list operators of course.

Re: NVDA keeps talking

 

Hi,

Okay. Can you try a portable copy of the latest master snapshot to see if this makes a difference? The snapshots can be found at:

The version that I did not have issues was the one that was in January and the one that came out around May or close I think the problem.

Hi,

What I mean by responsive is this: the version you had no issues whatsoever.

Well just open WLM and go to your inbox and NVDA will read everything and you can not stop it from talking. Also it is slow in IE 11. Before NVDA was very responsive. What is going on?

Subject: [nvda] Another Outlook Issue

Dear Folks,

There may be others who have this issue with Outlook, but since Joseph Lee has just been able to confirm my (and Julia's) problem with reading the list in some Outlook folders, I would like to especially address this question to him. But, please let's chime in if anyone else can say something about this.

Joseph, I wonder if you can reproduce a problem I have encountered with various versions of Outlook. Currently, I am using Office 2016. It's actually more an annoyance than a problem. Here goes:

In composing messages, I may hear unrelated words when I move from one field to another before the correct text is read. This happens frequently, but unpredictably, as far as I can figure (but, of course, that's not very far). In writing this message, for example, I just went back to the top and then jumped up to the subject field, using shift-tab. It read to me, "One inches dear folks subject alt u another outlook issue." On other occasions, but not this time, when I drop back down into the message field, it may first read the subject line of an unrelated email that I have just opened.

Warmly,
Ralph







Re: NVDA Issues with Outlook 2016

Sam Bushman
 

I tried the utility you mentioned. Doesn’t have good access.

I only have this plugin showing up in outlook now:

Microsoft Access Outlook Add-in for Data Collection and Publishing

Still no resolution.

Thanks,

Sam

List of Utilities that Make Windows 10 More Like Windows 7

 

Hello Folks,

Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more like Windows 7.

Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/

Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow, cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter. Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.

UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works)
UBitMenu makes itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/

Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer, replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a 32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3". Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon Explorer ". The program should ask you to log off. Do so, Next, log back on... and boom. To uninstall, just run the program you ran earlier. You will be presented with a button that says "Enable Ribbon Explorer". Click it. Again, you should be prompted to log off and back on. Your Windows Explorer should look normal again.

Hope these utilities help you. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions on more programs to add to this list, please reply.
