Seems like any web site does that to me. It never used to happen that way in Microsoft Edge. With Narrator, it acts the way it should. What's up with that, I wonder?

What web site are you on?

Just as I have found plenty of web sites that won't accept JAWS'
simulated mouse click, I am sure that there are some web site that won't
take the enter key either. There are some web site that absolutely will
not work unless you give them a real mouse click using a real mouse.

Hey Gene!
I tried that setting, and when I pressed Enter, Microsoft Edge just stood there and did nothing!

A simple solution that works for me and some other list members is to
change the JAWS setting "Link activation" from "simulates mouse click"
to "send enter key". You can find this setting in the settings center
under "Web/HTML/PDFs" > "Miscellaneous". You can get to the settings
center by pressing JAWS+6.

Hi, Karen. Microsoft Edge is broken right now, and when you try to click
on some elements of webpages, it sends a right click instead of a left
click, causing the context menu to come up. It's as if you pressed your
Applications key or SHIFT plus F10. The only way this will be fixed is
for Microsoft or Freedom Scientific to come up with a solution.

Using the latest version of Jaws, Windows 10 and Edge, when I go to and press enter on my e-mail account to go to the page to
enter the password, a dialog box pops up called the “Web Context Menu”.
I press escape and it puts me right back to where I was at my e-mail

I’ve rebooted, looked in settings, and it still pops up. It worked
perfectly two nights ago. It works fine in Firefox. And more
importantly, if I turn Jaws off, it works correctly. Ideas of what is wrong?
