Abbie, messenger is now a part of facebook. So do you have a facebook account?

To be honest, when ms/ google says you have been hacked, just like

I had the same issue with google sync, an update and reload had to be done.

The program crashed in the middle of signup.

Google then said I was hacked and needed to change my password.

It will also do that if you go to another location then signin from your
home location, sometimes it puts up a security message sometimes not.

Either you don't get it or respond fast enough and boom.

A friend had this with an ms account.

Her system lost power in the middle of a feature windows update.

Nothing worked, eventually she had to reformat her pc, and windows
mobile phone, change her passwords then create another account for it to
work.

Some of that was her isp doing strange things but everything got out of
sync, and then things got confused.

I had the same situation with a business system I was working on, the
encripted drive crashed.

Some backups were made but not everything.

The system was reinstalled on a new box, but again, security was just
crazy.

Eventually with some professional recovery technitions the drives were
recovered, the accounts were updated, but it envolved a lot of mucking
about.

I am more inclined to think if something says your account is hacked
that your account is not in fact compromised its just windows or your
previder telling you you are doing something outside their strict
guidelines.

Just insert the USB Flash Drive, determine the drive letter Windows gives it, press WIN-KEY+R, type DriveLetter:\NVDA and it will launch.

Thanks, Marcio, but all my windows in Firefox are maximized. I suppose I could try Chrome, but I doubt that would make much difference. I appreciate the suggestion, anyway.

Try to maximize the Messenger's window with alt+spacebar and X, if I'm not mistaken.
After you did it, go to the top of the page then navigate as on any other page.
Hope it can help you.

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


As mentioned  the easiest way for some is to use narrator on the other machine.


Depending as long as there is not a lock screen and this may depend on the operating system earlier version of narrator  up to windows 10 to start narrator was the windows key + enter key in a later version of windows 10 it is the ctrl key + windows key + the enter key.


The other way before knowing the shortcuts was to bring up the ease of access centre which if i remember right was the windows key + letter U then either alt + N to start narrator.


The shortcuts mentioned above will work but depending on the operating system of windows.


You will need to locate your usb drive then start your copy of nvda.

There are different ways of starting nvda on another computer which are on my nvda audio tutorials page.

Re: still clunky

Gene
 

Do you know how to start a new thread using the address to send mail to and not just by replying to another thread?  What you did is called hijacking.  It means to reply to an already existing thread, change the subject line and send a completely unrelated message.  If you don't know how to start a new message to the list, list members will tell you.  But hijacking threads is not something that should be done. 
 
Also, your question isn't clear.  Get what program to work better?  NVDA?  And what problems are you having.  Your question can't be answered if you don't describe what p[oblems you are having.

Run Narrator, then find and open the drive and run NVDA from the drive.  After it is running and you have speech, close Narrator.

 

If the laptop is a computer you are going to use often and you have permission to set something up on it, you can assign a short cut command to run NVDA and use it when the drive is connected.  You won't have to run Narrator if you do that.

Re: firefox issue

Admittingly not a very standard configuration, but using Firefox 61 beta 6 with NVDA 2018.1 and Windows 7 64 bit, I am having no issues setting new bookmarks with the control-d key stroke.

Re: [SUSPECTED SPAM] Re: [nvda] About Linux

Ervin, Glenn
 

Well, it is only open while I have the terminal open, and it is no more dangerous than using the windows “run as administrator” option that is in the applications menu.

Also, that is not messed up, anytime you type a command in Linux, you need to type sudo in front of it, unless you unlock it with sudo su or sudo –s.

Well, if you have to type sudo before each command, something is seriously messed up with your file permissions, you should be able to write anywhere in your own home directory. Also, telling someone to su into root is just downright dangerous, you could make sweeping changes with one command that could break the entire machine. Sudo is an administrative thing, it elevates your priveleges to do a command, and only that command, think of it like the secure UAC thing in windows, it elevates that program to administrative level until it finishes, like installers. Having programs permanently elevated to administrative level is dangerous, as it leaves the computer open to attack.


Re: About Linux

I think that time problem is a matter of using UTC, or not using UTC in settings.
I experience this on my computers when I boot up to a live copy of Linux.
A search for dual boot and UTC may find your answer.
