Re: Microsoft's Own Security Chief Says: STOP using Internet Explorer

Gene
 

Are you assuming you can't change the name because Chrome says bookmark added before you edit anything?  I seldom add new bookmarks in Chrome but I experimented.  If I use control d to add one, Chrome says bookmark added but I am still on the edit field where I can change the name.  It wasn't announced as an edit field for some reason with NVDA.  I don't know what other screen-readers would do.  I tried typing and I was able to change the name as in any standard edit field. 
 
That's an example of looking around an not assuming what your screen-reader says is always relevant.  Somewhere, Chrome says bookmark added but that is misleading and it hasn't been actually saved yet.  If something seems wrong, look around.
 
As far as finding a book mark after you save it even if you don't know the name, if you know what folder it is saved in, it is the first bookmark at the end of the list.  If you are in the list and up arrow, it will be the first one.  I don't work enough with book marks in Chrome to discuss specifying a folder much but I can tell you a little if you want to know.
 
I can't answer the other questions about how to move all bookmarks to one folder, etc.  But creating bookmarks in Chrome is similar to doing so in other browsers.

That's all very good. But I want to edit the
bookmark name before I save it, not afterward,
since I won't be able to find my bookmark if I
don't know what Chrome automatically named it.
Also, I'd like to move all my Internet Explorer
favorites in Chrome from the Imported from IE
directory to the root of wherever Chrome stores
favorites. AI want all my favorites sorted into
the directories I assigned them, not grouped by
the browser from which they were imported.
Thanks,
Orlando

Hi.
I have a windows 10 tablet with NVDA installed. It works just like on a laptop. I'd recommend a surface go. With the detachable keyboard. I love it 😂

Hi guys,
Just out of curiosity, could you install NVDA on a Windows tablet?
I'm pretty sure you can, and I know it'd rely mostly on the touch screen function. I'm just wondering how effective it would be compared to Apple's VoiceOver.

I wonder if one day, following on from your comment, that someone might dig up some of these, and also call them an ancient written language needing interpretation.

Emojis are nothing more than tiny images (drawn, not photos) that fit
in line with text, taking up the equivalent of 1 to 2 (maybe 3)
character places.

They originally had, as their intent, expressing emotions much as
emoticons did and do. However, the range has expanded to include so
many that this can no longer be said to be the case.

Many are used as coded references to other things. The infamous
eggplant emoji being the most "commonly known" one. Look it up.

If the headphones are wireless, try and remember to turn them off if you're going to walk away.
Some times if the tablet or computer shuts off and then the headphones turn off by themselves, you can have some issues when you turn everything back on.

Yes. The headphones are not wireless. I plug them in to the headphone jack.
I think it's an issue with the sound card on my tablet. I know of other
people having similar issues with surface devices. Including the keyboard
occasionally not responding.

I had a laptop once that the sound card started going out on.
Oddly enough, it really only effected the voices for the screen reader I was using.
This is probably more of a computer question, but every time I update to Windows 10 version 1809 I start having sound issues?
When I contacted Microsoft, they told me it was a bluetooth issue. that would be fixed in a future update. Does this happen on tablets as well?
