  1. Getting an audiobook via Audible screwed up my login screen, and more


    I'm using a laptop running Windows 10. Last night I got an audiobook via Audible. To do so, I needed to sign up via Apple or Android or some other option. I chose the Windows option, because I'm using a laptop, not a smartphone. It needed me to login to my Windows account (whatever that is). I put in my Gmail address and said I don't remember my password. It sent me an email so that I could set up my new password. Finally, it installed a special Audible 'app' (as opposed to a traditional application), and began downloading the file.

    Now here's the problem. My login screen now features my full name and my email address, and it only accepts the new password from last night. This makes me screaming crying furious. I want it back to the way it was.

    An additional problem is that one of my AutoHotKey shortcuts has been disabled. Because Windows 10 has a completely useless file search function, I use the third-party freeware called Everything. Normally, all I have to do to call up it is press Win+F. But now pressing that does nothing. If I use the Start menu to run Everything, then pressing Win+F works again. But I have to start the program first, otherwise the shortcut doesn't work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Audiobooks on WP7 zune?

    Microsoft officially lists Audible and Overdrive as their audiobooks partners. And I hear Audible is indeed working on a WP7 solution for their audiobooks.

  3. Audiobooks on WP7 zune?

    There are now 3rd party apps in the marketplace that can be used to play audiobooks on a windows phone that also allow you to bookmark your place in the book. You can find them by searching on "Audiobook" in the marketplace. I've only purchased audiobooks
    from Audible and I check audiobooks out of the library via the Overdrive app, so those are the only apps I've used on my phone.
