Re: Getting to Music, Photos & video files

Hi


Maybe your view changed back to quick view or it may of been default.


The following below will have it so you see the drives like before and folders like music video etc there.


How to Configure File Explorer (previously known as Windows Explorer) to Open With This PC
When you go to open File Explorer with the Windows key + the letter E you will be presented with the following called quick access view.
If you do not like the Quick Access view, you can configure File Explorer to open with This PC view.
In the search box when the Windows key is pushed, type control panel. You will end up in the control panel and be given a whole heap of options. Next, on your keyboard, press the letter F (so NVDA finds the File manager icon). Next, press the Enter key to be given more options. Under the general tab (which will be the first place NVDA lands on), you will hear NVDA say open file explorer to quick access. Next, arrow down until you hear NVDA say this PC. Next, tab until you hear NVDA say apply button; press the Enter key on this, then tab to the ok button, and press the Enter key. Now when you want to go into file manager with the Windows key + the letter E, you will have this PC view. Then, it is a matter of just finding your drives and so on. For example C:\ drive,  D:\ drive E:\  drive and removable drives.


Or this might be of help


Restoring your Desktop icons
You may be used to having various shortcut icons on your Desktop such as this PC, Recycle Bin, Control Panel etcetera, but did you know that some of the shortcuts can be added if they are not there?

If you are back on the desktop and have noticed a particular icon is not there and you want it back on the desktop, this can easily be done.

Press the Windows key + the letter I. This will bring up the Windows settings section in Windows. You will be given some options. Locate the Personalization icon then press the Enter key. Arrow until you hear NVDA say themes then press the Enter key. Next, tab until you hear NVDA say Desktop icon settings then press the Enter key. You will now be given some options (such as Computer, User's Files, Network, Recycle Bin, Control Panel). You can arrow up or down this section if there are shortcuts/icons you want to put back on the desktop from this location. Press the spacebar on the ones you want. This will check the check box, so they can be added. After you have made your selection/s, tab to the apply button, then press the Enter key. Tab again until you hear NVDA say ok button, then press the Enter key. Now these shortcuts/icons will be on your desktop.

To listen to an audio tutorial on how to restore your previous desktop icons in Windows 10 (if they are missing after the upgrade) please click on the following link https://www.dropbox.com/s/v7yb1ordoih6rpd/How%20to%20restore%20previous%20desktop%20icons%20in%20Windows%2010%20.MP3?dl=0

But none of this should matter.  The point of Windows is to allow you to get to things like this very quickly not dependent on knowing where they are.  In Windows 7, I can't discuss how Windows 10 is organized, if you open the start menu, then tab once, you are in a list.  You can down arrow and find documents and music.  You can also use first letter navigation and type d or m. 

 

If the start menu isn't working properly, you may need to know where they are to open them using Windows Explorer.  I don't know how many Windows 7 users know about this, and I also suspect that Windows 10 has a similar interface.

Re: nvdaremote is back up

Antony Stone
 

I believe the server component of NVDA Remote has also been released as open
source code now as well, so it is possible to run your own equivalent of the
nvdaremote.com "middleman" on any machine which is accessible to the two
clients wishing to communicate with each other.

The initial release was only of the client code, which mean you could either
do peer-to-peer, if the clients could see each other directly over a network,
or use nvdaremote.com as a middleman, but now that the server code has been
released as well, there is no need to trust any third party even when you need
to connect two computers, neither of which has a public IP address, and you
cannot set up a VPN between them.

Nvdaremote.com is fairly convenient, it allows bypassing port forwarding

certainly not necessary and may not even be wise for privacy reasons. Aman

Re: Getting to Music, Photos & video files

Hi Rose-marie

You can actually press the Windows key, type Downloads and it will appear in the search results.  It also appears on the start menu which is not as easily navigated as in Windows 7 as there is no first letter navigation. Don’t use the tab key, you just arrow down the list to it.  As someone also suggested, press Windows+r, type Downloads and press enter.   

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi

My Music folders are also on separate drives but that does not stop them being in a Windows library.  The under-lying folder structures remain as all a library consists of is a group of folder links grouped under the Music library label.

It is similar in Windows 10. And the search box should work. If not, then the run command suggested earlier. However not all of us choose to have our music organised this way. Mine for example is not part of a Windows “library” but spread across two drives, each with their own separate music folder with many subfolders.

So maybe it would help to know where the music is actually located on the system.

Re: nvda very laggy on some websites with latest chrome

Tyler Wood
 

Chrome has always been faster than firefox in everything it did for me, even before firefox made the change.

Now, firefox is slower to open, slower to load, slower to close. I'll take edge over it these days. Firefox is slowly improving, but now they're going to be taking away read mode, so I won't even be using it for that and I'm sure I'll find a chrome alternative.

Sure it is.

I'm not sure if he's still going to work on it or what's happening there, but surely someone else can take over.


There's also an NVDA remote server that folks can run if they so choose that is not supported by the official NVDA remote add on.

It's gone down before. It just won't connect.

It's back up now though.

Re: nvda very laggy on some websites with latest chrome

Tyler Wood
 

The biggest problem I am having with chrome is it is using a ton of memory.

If I leave it open for long enough, it will eventually bring this machine with 16 gb of ram to its knees. And that is with me closing every tab after use.

NVDA is running pretty snappy with chrome for me even on my little asus transformer book t100 1st gen.

NVDA is very very laggy almost to the point of the site is nearly unreadable and its frustrating to navigate the site.

Can you not use that useful master seeker and then open the containing folder? I'm sure I used to be able to do that in windows 10.

Maybe its a case of setting certain privileges correctly or something.

Hi, Gene,



I agree that you should be able to get to a program or file quickly. In windows 10 you have to go through the file explorer to find a program or file now. Now I can't even hit the start menu and type "downloads" in the search box like I used to. I have to go through file explorer.

But none of this should matter. The point of Windows is to allow you to get to things like this very quickly not dependent on knowing where they are. In Windows 7, I can't discuss how Windows 10 is organized, if you open the start menu, then tab once, you are in a list. You can down arrow and find documents and music. You can also use first letter navigation and type d or m.



If the start menu isn't working properly, you may need to know where they are to open them using Windows Explorer. I don't know how many Windows 7 users know about this, and I also suspect that Windows 10 has a similar interface.

Hi

This was the case in earlier Windows versions but I think since Windows
7, Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos folders are stored in the
c:\Users\UserName folder where “Username” is the name of the Windows
account. These are also the default folders in the Libraries of the
same names, so if you configure File Explorer to “Library view”, they
appear in the list when you press Windows+e, so are easily accessible.

Cheers

Yes I have a scratchpad music folder on C:\ and I also have a short cut to it and back the other way from other folders in my user area of course, but sometimes when using this, if you do not get it right it seems to forget you are you and won't let you in that way!

It is similar in Windows 10. And the search box should work. If not, then the run command suggested earlier. However not all of us choose to have our music organised this way. Mine for example is not part of a Windows “library” but spread across two drives, each with their own separate music folder with many subfolders.

So maybe it would help to know where the music is actually located on the system.
