Re: how to access the system tray

Lauren:

I am not using Windows 8 as yet, but try using ALT+TAB, to see what windows are open. If Windows 8 behaves in the same way as previous versions of Windows, press and hold down the ALT key and tap the TAB key. If you do not hear JAWS announce the first open program/application, then you have no open programs/applications running. If you hear JAWS announce an open program/application window, keep the ALT key down and press the TAB key again. If JAWS does not announce the name of any more open program/application windows, then you know that the window which JAWS has already announced is the only program/application that is active/running.

Thanks Dave; is there another short cut key like that one to see what apps
are open? I went from XP to 8 and it's quite a learning curve; thanks.
