Re: windows 10 disk clean up

Hi


If you are a new user of NVDA and you have not tried surfing any websites the section in the user manual you will need to see is called browse mode it is section 6 also single letter navigation section 6.1 and the elements list 6.2 Plus I would start off with a easier type of website to navigate to get a idea of how they are layed out.


Those sections are found in the user manual use the nvda key + letter N to bring up the nvda menus then arrow down to help, then right to user manual then the press the enter key on that menu When the browser comes up then jump down by letter H for headings to those sections to read them.


I noticed the servers where my website was hosted were down so you could not access the website but seems to be up now.


The website of mine is easy to navigate you can jump around easily. the main page is setup in a table then after you go into a web page they are long pages but can be jumped through quickly by H for headings.

If you take a look you will know what I mean.

Wow! Gene, I need you as a computer teacher. I did not even ask the
question because I totally forgot about disk clean up.

You wrote the steps in the way I learn and write down steps. It is hard
to find someone to do it that specific here where I live.


I have copied these steps and will be trying to do this tonight before
going to bed.


Thanks so much again.

Why not do cleanmgr /sageset / then cleanmgr /sagerun:1 as I do this all thet iem for my disk clean up. You can see many many hidden items that real disk clean up does not show you, and it sitll will not hurt your system. You do these from the run dialogue by the way.

What ever one you pick say c: drive you will then need to tab to ok button then press the enter key. It will then calculate how much can be cleaned up.

It will give you a list of areas it can clean up and say those areas. There is a check box next to each one. You can arrow down the list and use the space bar to check the box.

Down towards the bottom of the list you will then need to tab as the down arrow key will not take you any further.. If you tab once it will land on a system files button I think it was called. Press the enter key and repeate the process like before except this for will be for system files. Then at the bottom of the list you have selected all the ones you want removed you will then need to tab to the ok button then press the enter key.

It will then give you a message just say yes to it and then it will clean it up all for you.

Hope it helps.

Do not worry it will not remove any files only the ones you picked not needed.

I would definitely be interested in something like that if it is easy to find on the site. I have never been that great with websites and now with memory problems it is even more difficult. Thanks so much for all you do.

If you are interested in any of the other stuff I have written that way more for using NVDA on a desk top computer you can go to the following website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

I could tidy it up and post it up there under a page called nvda tutorials for other programs page. I did have a audio version up there but may be on the nvda tutorials learning the basics page or nvda audio tutorials page I would have to check.

further to my last, I must ask that you disregard it, as a restart of Thunderbird resolved the issue.

You may use it in this or that program.  But it is a program command.  Screen-readers wouldn't use such commands because they are too likely to interfere with program commands.  Alt and a letter or number while working with menus, is the standard way of executing a menu short cut.  That's another reason screen-readers wouldn't use it, that interface is already reserved and it would cause confusion. 
 
I am going into all this because I don't know if you have received the kind of training that made such things clear and it also may clarify things for others.

Thank you.  That helps a lot. 
I got out of the software I was running and simply opened
a new window and alt + p did nothing at all except that nvda
echoed the key strokes.

nvda and Windows10 both have a rich set of keyboard
commands and I could have sworn that alt + p looked familiar.

Very likely neither.  Not always, but very often, commands that take actions in programs are program commands.  Those that take actions in Windows are Windows commands.  Screen-readers tell you what is on-screen, give you ways to review the information or to work with it such as browse mode, to compensate for there being no good way to do so if the screen-reader doesn't provide its own interface, and allows you to read specific things, such as the title bar or the clock that a sighted person would look at.
 
Consider the context.  Someone is giving a demonstration.  It appears the person is using some sort of program to allow multiple people to listen.  So he is very likely using a program command for the program he is using for that purpose.
 
Just what that command does, I'm not sure.  Try looking through the menus if you are using the same program.  This sort of approach and information may help you look around programs and learn about them.

I was listening to a demo of some software when someone
needed to upload a file from their computer to an attached radio
and they used alt + p.  This gives you two alternatives, r and w
which is easy enough to follow so far except that I get that
unceremonious dumpout you get when you hit the wrong button and
the effect is the same as typing Escape.  You just go back to
whatever was going on before typing alt + p.

Thanks.
