Digital ID

by grandpaw7 / November 26, 2004 10:52 PM PST

I just tried to email a webpage; I got a notice that I could not send a digital ID page because I don't have a digital ID. What are digital id pages, and how can a person tell that a page is a digital id page? Thanks, grandpaw

Thanks, Steve, for the info. I did have a digital ID for my bank account but found that some bank service, I can't remember what, was not available if I had that so I dispensed with it.

The problem I had must have been some kind of anomaly or I may have inadvertently done something to cause it. I had a website page on my screen about cooking and I tried to send the page, not just the link, to my daughter. That is when I got the message that I couldn't do this without a digital ID. I then went to the homepage for this website and was able to send the link, not the page, without any problem. I wondered if there might be a way for the website owner to require a digital ID in this circumstance, even though that didn't make much sense. I've tried recreate the scenario out of curiosity, but now I don't have a problem sending the page. It's not worth looking into any more, unless it repeats itself, but, anyhow, I now know more about digital ID. Thanks, grandpaw

Hi Jerry
I don't know what you use for E-mail but IF it is Outlook Express, there is a thing to click on at the top of the e-mail for using a Digital-ID. You MIGHT have cicked that by mistake. I would not be surprised if other e-mail programs have the same option at the top. Just a possibilty. Grin

The way you talk, Rod, you'd think I was in charge of what my fingers do. Frankly, the way they have treated me, I'm seriously considering your comment that tney may have to go; after all, there is that pencil thing that Chuck suggested. Thanks for demystifying, grandpaw

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
