[vip_students] Re: Windows Find

Hi Paul,

Thank you for coming up to the plate and explaining that for us!

I am using Windows 98 SE but what you say does not work with that OS I'm afraid!

What OS do you use?

I got a little wet from my walk a little earlier; both inside and out!!

Enjoy the rest of what remains of the weekend, rain or no!

Tony Sweeney.

      Hi Tony.

  This was my reply to a question on how to quickly find an old email within 
either the in box or sent items.  Press alt and the letter i (jaws then asks 
you to press forms mode and input the search criteria, for example the name of 
the sender you are looking for, the subject line, or part of the email text) , 
then tab to find and enter).  

  I didn't bother including the bit within brackets as jaws supplies the 
information when you press alt and i.  The win F search command is, as you 
point out, a very handy one to know.  The alt and i command is particularly 
useful if you keep a lot of emails in say your sent items box and want to find 
one quickly .  

  Paul

    Hi,

    Now unfortunately the message is gone from my deleted items folder!

    Now I for one am not making an issue here, out of sensitivity for the 
feelings of the person who wrote that erroneous reply!

    I am continuing to go carefully with this!

    Now if people are happy with erronious answers to questions on this list 
then that is their prerogative, but I won't be part of it I assure you!

    The question though was in relation to doing a find for Paul t's 'emails to 
the list and it was stated by a lister, whom I won't name, that they should 
press alt and the letter i and then press enter!

    This was of course wrong!

    Alt i would be for if you want to insert an attachment!

    By the way should anyone find that erroneous email perhaps they could email 
it to me off list, and not to the list, please?

    Sorry to be going on,  on a bank holiday weekend but I had only intended to 
send one gently rebuking email on the subjectt
    but I had to clarify to you after your email back! 

    Now I think I will take a Saturday evening stroll!!

    All the best,

    Tony Sweeney.

      Hi Tony,

      I didn't see any question lately on the list about "Windows Find" - which 
one was that? 

      Perhaps it would be best that if you thought that a reply to a particular 
question was 
      "erroneous" that you could query it as it may have been a knowledgeable 
piece of information relating to some other particular issue, which could be 
stored away for future reference.  

      as you have said yourself "I must confess that we can all get things a 
little wrong at times, but it is important for any list to Endeavour at all 
times to maintain it's integrity.!

      Best wishes,

      Loretta.

      Hi All,

      Another lister posed a question to this  list re Windows Find and the 
answer given by another lister was in my opinion erronious having tried it out!

      The answer to the Find question is: press the Win key and the letter f, 
and tab from there and the rest should be self-explanatory! 

      I must confess that we can all get things a little wrong at times, but it 
is important for any list to endeavour at all times to maintain it's integrity.

      Enjoy the long weekend!

      Tony Sweeney.
