Hi,


The problem is that Google Drive doesn't show up either on the desktop or in the app list.  I see docs, sheets and some others but not drive.


thanks.

Where Can I send log?

Jackie
 

I've been having issues w/NVDA & Excel 2010 for a good while now. To
put the matter succinctly, NVDA simply freezes. I've finally managed
to capture this in a log. I could post it to the list, but that seems
rather unfair, as it wouldn't interest most & it's fairly long. So
where should I send it?

Yes agreed, and I just can't understand why the Nvda devs don't just fix this.

Re: Nvda on Usb

 

Molly,

            Think about your own user name, your description of what you did (which is perfect, by the way) then think about what Gene wrote:  "And those without experience in placing a portable program . . ."

             You are not a member of that demographic.   Nor am I or Gene.   Context matters.   Describing what a skilled person does, while interesting, is not really germane to the broader point that both Gene and I (and at least one or two others) have been trying to make.

Hi.

When I created a portable copy of NVDA I  created a folder which I first placed on my flash drive. It helps to give the folder a specific name that you will remember. After the portable copy was placed in to the folder I then renamed the screen reader file  so I could easily find it.

And those without experience in placing a portable program on the hard drive, would quite possibly expect this to be done because their experience using zip or other extraction programs is as you describe.  If you extract an archive, a folder is created to contain the extracted files.

That is intended to remove an installed copy of NVDA from a system, not to remove the portable copy.
Frankly, it shouldn't be available in the portable copy.
To remove a portable copy, you just delete it.

In my opinion, we should probably try to get this situation changed in a future version, perhaps by storing files not needed by portable in zips or the like.
Or even just having them put in a folder and renamed to non-executable.

There is no uninstaller for a portable version.   You just delete it.

If you had nothing else on that drive, then open the drive, create a folder named NVDA, then select all else on the drive and move it to that folder.

If you want the drive space available again then just delete the files on it or format it again.

I have created folder called Nvda and Then I moved all files of Nvda to it.

Thank you very much.

You can have it wherever you want, in a folder or not, and copy or move it anywhere, to another drive, thumb, external hard drive, etc.
 
But to keep files from being splattered on the drive without a folder, I think its better to have the files in a folder.  If you don't, they will be on the root of the drive or thumb drive.

It's been ages since I last played with this, but if memory serves once you've created the portable version of NVDA on a USB drive you are free to create a folder for it and move it there and/or create separate folders for other stuff on that drive.

We're not talking about a bootable drive, just a drive that has a portable edition of NVDA on it.   In all other respects the drive is free game for storing things in other folders.

I'm sure someone will correct me if my memory is not serving.

Brian,
I am out of town on vacation, so no. Also, somehow I must have deleted your specific message. I’ve seen tons of things referring to your message about the dictionary, but I did not see Ewers message. If you wouldn’t mind sending it to me privately, I will give it a shot when I get home this weekend.

Quite agreed. And the first thing MS does on a windows update, is turn it back on. Be warned.

On systems with SSDs the decrease in boot times when it's off are imperceptible.  On
regular HDD it's not that much longer to boot from scratch, and well worth it in my opinion.
On my HDD equipped laptop, turning it off approximately doubles boot time, to about two minutes.
Well, actually, about 50 seconds of that is between logon and desktop stability, which is usually shorter with this option turned on, although I'm not exactly sure why, since it shouldn't have any effect at that point in the process.
