The way I found out to edit my profile is to sign into yahoo mail, on the very top it says "hi, your name", there should be an arrow next to your name, click on the arrow and select profile, you should be able to edit your profile from there.

How to Change a Yahoo ID Name for a Chat Room |


INSTRUCTIONAL STEP TO FOLLOW
From the main page of Yahoo.com, click on the "More Yahoo! Services" option at the left side of the screen. In the pop-up screen, click on the"Chat" option. The following page will direct you to a place where you can download Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you download the correct version that is compatible with your operating system, and that youclosely follow the appropriate steps for installing the chatting tool. Wait to be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password in order to sign on.You may already have a Yahoo! ID if you have previously signed up for a Yahoo! service. The majority of users typically have a Yahoo! ID from using Yahoo! Mail. You can sign on with the same user ID and password you use for your Yahoo! Mail if you would like. But keep in mind that members of a chat room might have easier access to finding out who you are. The safest and best option is to create an alternative ID name and password. Instead of signing into Yahoo! Messenger with the user ID you already have,click on the "Create Yahoo! ID" option at the bottom the Yahoo!Messenger page. A new screen should appear that prompts you to create an entirely new user ID. However, this time, only include the minimal information needed to create a user ID. For example, you do not need to include your alternative email. When finished, click on "Create MyAccount."Now that you have an alternate Yahoo! ID, only use your newly created user ID for when you enter a chat room. You can still sign onto Yahoo!Messenger using your normal Yahoo! ID to chat with trusted friends.Once you are signed on with your normal Yahoo! ID, you can switch to your alternate user ID before entering chat rooms. The following, final step will help you with this simple process. Clickon "Profile" in the top toolbar, then click on "My Profiles." Now clickon "Edit Profiles." You will be taken to your normal Yahoo! profile.Click on "Account Info" in the top, right-hand corner of the page.Click on "Edit/Create Aliases" on the right-hand side of the page. You can now add the new Yahoo! ID you have created. Once this is complete,go back to Yahoo! Messenger and click on "Join a Yahoo! Chat Room" frothe "File" option in top toolbar. At the top of the chat-room pop-up,you now have the option to switch your Yahoo! ID before entering a room.

Yes. You can create up to six (6) additional aliases to use instead of your Yahoo! ID, so you can keep private details private.
Here's how:

  2. Select My Account Info. This opens a browser window displaying your account details.
  3. Click the Edit/Create Profiles link on the right side of the page.
  4. In the lower portion of the page, click Add an alias.
  5. Enter a new alias in the box that opens.
  6. Click Save.
  7. At the bottom of the page, click Close.
Entering Yahoo! Chat from Yahoo! Messenger is easy. Here's how:
  1. Sign in to Messenger.
  2. Select Messenger from the menu bar.
  3. Select Yahoo! Chat from the drop down menu.
  4. Click Join a Room.
  5. Select your Yahoo! ID or an alias from the drop down labeled Enter Chat Room As.
  6. Select a category on the left and a room on the right.
  7. Double-click the name of the room you want to enter.

Microsoft Access


You need to set up security and different profiles for different people. that is the safest way. But an easier way is to have you enter data in one form and them enter their data in another form. In their form edit the properties of the fields that you want left alone. You need to set the properties to locked in the form where they do their data entry but leave them unlocked where you do your data entry. Just creat a second form by saving the first one under a different name. Also you might want to remove the fields from the tab stop list.

You may have selected a profile that does not alert you audibly when you receive messages. You may select a different profile, edit the current profile or create a completely new profile. I'm attaching instructions for creating a profile and editing would be similar except you would select a profile then select "edit" for the menu. Be use you have "tone" or "vibrate and tone" selected and that the volume is not on mute. Always save your changes.

Create notification profiles
1.In the profiles list, click the trackwheel.
2.Click New Profile.
3.Type a name for the profile.
4.Click an item.
5.Click Edit.
6.Set how you want to receive notification for that item.
7.Click the trackwheel.
8.Click Save.
9.Click the trackwheel.
10.Click Save.

To turn on tones when pressing the keys, follow the following instructions:


Turn on tones when pressing keys
In the device options, click Screen/Keyboard. Set the Key Tone field to On. Click the trackwheel. Click Save.
