@Joe
if you mean the browser : F11
  Mon. 3/27/17 9:57am JakeGould:

Or press "Fn" (Function) + "Page Up"
     Mon. 3/27/17 9:57am Listener Robert:

Knowing that closing the window will probably exit the program, I mean.
Avatar Mon. 3/27/17 9:57am Joe McG:

Thanks, all. F11 was the charm. The keyboard has a volume icon on that button, so I thought that it was for sound.
     Mon. 3/27/17 9:59am Listener Robert:

The sound control probably works only if you press Fn-F11 or possibly Ctrl-F11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/27/17 9:59am Andrew Waterloo:

F11 is popular advice these days.

I have an telemarketing friend somewhere on the Indian subcontinent that can fix it in exchange for your credit card number. He usually calls around dinner time though.

i saw this great cartoon: a fellow at his computer screen, with a pal standing behind him giving advice. coming from out of the monitor is a scaly large clawed lizard-like paw, wrapped around the usser's face. advice from co-worker, "ok, slowly reach out and press the 'escape' button." (i hope that translates well)
  Mon. 3/27/17 10:05am JakeGould:

@JoeMcG: Is that a Mac keyboard? If somehow F7 to F12 are connected to audio things like volume and playback, hold the "Fn" key (which should be under F13) and then hit one of those keys. In your case it seems like the system preferences are set to just use them as standard function keys.
Avatar Mon. 3/27/17 10:06am Joe McG:

Thanks for the info, JakeG. @annie: That's how I feel most of the time with computers. :)

As long as Scarlett Johansson is on the list, I’d like to say this: She is not an action hero and whenever I see her in action film roles, I wince. Completely miscast. Won’t even touch “Ghost in the Shell” because that is racially tone-deaf casting AND she’s a crappy action. ScarJo is no Milla Jovovich! *end* *done* *sighs*

@Joe McG: I'm another quiet listener — until now! I'm spouting off because of my fascination with songs where what's sung is not exactly the same as the stated title, as in that Betty LaVette track. And I don't just mean as in Squeeze's "Another Nail in My Heart" where they actually sing "for" and not "in" — I'm referring to something more like "Baby What You Want Me to Do," where Jimmy Reed actually sings, "Baby, why you wanna let go?" but the producer misheard Reed's slurring delivery when he gave the song a title.

There is a great Johnny Cash & Waylon Jennings interview from the Letterman show. Check it out if you're a fan of either or both of them.

nice Waylon

Hi all. The thing with Scarlett is, she is the only actress I can think of who has made two pictures (Her and Lucy) in which her character ends up becoming God.

Waylon Jennings singing Tom Rush. Mmmmmm...

"Under the Skin" is my favorite Scarlett J. movie.

who wrote 'no regrets?' i know tom rush and the walker brothers did it, but does it go back farther?

@Gaylord, that *is* fascinating, at least to me. But then I tend to notice these things -- errant apostrophes, unnecessary quotation marks, admiral's semicolons, grandma's coffeemaker asterisks, etc.

I do believe it was Tom Rush who wrote it.

@Joe McG: I can recommend the novel "Under the Skin" wholeheartedly— the film has big differences from it but captures the tone of the book very well.

Charlie Pride was the celeb guest on "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" yesterday. He sounded like a wealthy Texan. He was charming in the interview but irascible during the game portion.
