When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Works Fine After Activating Via PC But Absent
« on: April 23, 2016, 11:45:42 pm »
Installed Echo via my PC and it works great. But I can't access "Home" because there is no icon and my PC can't find it anywhere. However, when I go to http://alexa.amazon.com, all of my info is there--To Do List, Shopping List, History, etc. On the other hand, I've also paired it with my Android phone and there are no problems there. I have Windows 10, and Google Chrome, which doesn't have Favorites allowing me to create a desktop icon. Any suggestions?

Can't you just create a shortcut for your PC to alexa.amazon.com to do what you want to do?

  • In your Chrome browser go to http://alexa.amazon.com.
  • Open the Chrome menu in the upper-right hand corner of the window, directly under the red "x" that closes the window.
  • When the menu opens, select the "More tools" sub-menu.
  • From there, select the "Add to desktop..." option.
  • Click the "Add" button on the dialog box that pops up.

There should now be a shortcut to http://alexa.amazon.com on your desktop.
