Q&A with CIPCUG Session 170

Lisa Toth   I use Firefox for my web browser. I want to see the line at the top that includes ‘file’, ‘view’ etc.

Fred Krueger   Where can I find the Microsoft program or app that links your phone to a PC?

Lisa Toth   Microsoft introduced a new feature in email convert[ng incoming mail to a black background. I like that as I can see it better.  However, when I reply to an email sometimes I can see what I am typing (it is the white against black I am used to) and other times, my typing is a very light color. I have to strain to see it.  I tried using the button to that reverses back to the original background usually white.  The problem with that is, now my typing is white against white. I can’t see it at all.

In addition to that, I have no idea what the recipient sees.

Lisa Toth    Can I set up two contact lists in outlook? I think I can but I don’t have time right now to figure it out. Once they are set up how do they work?

Sandy Tsutsui-Trujillo   I don’t think I have proper protection on my iPhone. What do you recommend to protect it from malware, etc.

Andy Toth   I want to do a clean reinstall of windows 10.  I have my data on the local computer synced with OneDrive. If I logout of my Microsoft account that is associated with that storage (I am using Office365), I should be able to reinstall windows in that partition and as long as I install OneDrive in the same location I should be fine.

Tony Pizza   The HTML editor I need to match / replace is AceHTML – version  5 Pro.

Lisa Toth   I’ve been thinking about “pay” internet. I’m thinking that like cable tv you’ll sign up for a “channel” and have access to a lineup of content. Like Google might offer all of it’s pages plus other Independent “pages”.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 155

Lisa Toth   Two questions:  I am using Firefox as my browser.  I have win 10 and a Toshiba laptop.

Some sites that I want to visit and that I trust always get stopped by FF and I have to select allow.  I have tried to find a way to white list them but can’t find it.  Also, lately my browser has been slow.  Occasionally I get a message that a page is slowing FF down and do I want to wait or stop the page.
