In Response to Re: Video Creating Software - Reply to BettyCM question:
Thanks for that reply. I am only at the beginning of attempting the video creation idea, and will re-read and save this for my future attampts.;And, the cost, $50.00 is really not bad for that program.
It does seem we have to be so careful of what we download these days. And, the job of deleting the downloads is getting time consuming too, just as the email deletions. I tried one of the email organizing programs,( OIB, I believe it was,) but, that too, was more work than necessary. Do you have an email organizer that is good?
I do believe, though , that we will all ve doing more video chatting, live, as time goes on. Social media will require it , as more users get accustomed to video creation.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to explain it so well.

From what I could find, OIB, stands for "Other InBox". This appears to be nothing more than a fancy, but unneeded filtering mechanism, AT BEST (READ ON).
Most e-mail clients have built in filtering capability, as well as web based services. Some are better than others. For myself, I actually have four levels of filtering:
1. Filters on my e-mail domain (I have my own domain just for e-mail).
2. Filters on my "receive only account". I have multiple e-mails, most of which are sent to one, "receive only account". This has additional filters, over and above #1. However #1 and #2 aren't changed that often, because of how I manage my e-mails.
3. Filters on MailWasher Program. This program connects to the "receive only account", provides me a list of the existing e-mails waiting to be downloaded, and I can establish filters there. This allows me to delete the e-mails before they get into my M$ Outlook InBox. For instance.
3.1. I block most e-mails, that aren't from the USA (based on TLD), actually they are automatically deleted, before I even see them.
3.2. I have specific filters (as well as the ones come with it). For instance Body contains BIT.LY OR Body contains TINYURL.
4. Finally, filters in M$ Outlook.
Some will say that they just let the SPAM filter catch the "bad" stuff, but of all the filtering above, the last change I had to make was on Mailwasher about eight months ago, and that was just to flag an e-mail as something that was AOK (assign it a category). As for changing the filters, because of "bad" stuff, I haven't had to do that in almost 4 years, and then, that was just for "safety sake"!
So to me, depending on what your e-mail service is (web based or POP based), most likely the built in filters of most of the e-mail services, or your pop-based client (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, etc) should work sufficiently or organize things.
I played with "Other Inbox", and when I started the process, it said (On GMail), "A third party service is requesting permission to access your Google Account". The problem with that, is for "Other Inbox" to pull your e-mail down to organize it, you must give them your e-mail and password to your e-mail account. That is dangerous, because they can mess with your account. Some will say that they the account information is stored securely... but where is the proof.
Filters can be created that will automatically move, delete, etc messages as they come in (depending on the service). If a person takes a little more time and thinks more when creating their filters, even basic filtering will be just fine.
As for downloading, I organize it on a drive under the folder 00_installs/00_current_config (after it was tested on a Virtual Machine [VM]). Each program is stored in it's own folder, prefixed as:
1. (FREEWARE) - Name says it all.
2. (RETAIL) - Name says it all.
3. (SHAREWARE) - Stuff I've downloaded, but haven't decided to include it in my build yet, so they are waiting on license purchase.
4. (DOWNLOADED) - Same as SHAREWARE, but I've purchased licenses for.
So this way all types of programs are grouped together, and I can quickly decide if I want to delete the program(s). All I have to do is highlight the folders, and delete them (all versions -- if I have multiple versions saved).
Also, organizing, I have a program that allows me to organize not only CD/DVDs, but hard drives also. It is called Advanced File Organizer. It has a lot of feature, including searching like this:
So as you can see, it can find things that have been burnt to CD/DVD easily, as well as any hard drive.
As for your "I do believe, though , that we will all ve doing more video chatting, live, as time goes on. Social media will require it , as more users get accustomed to video creation", if you look through CH, the members are wanting the basic site to work first. For instance, unable to move from page to page has been broken for over a month. AARP needs to focus in on that first, the basic functionality first.
