Re: Views split button
Hi Robert,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If you press Spacebar on this split button then itsilently cycles to the next view type. However if you press Down Arrow then it opens the slider. For any screenreader I believe the best choice is the Details Mode as this presents all items in a single one dimensional list but also adds columns for extra information. The percentage for Details Mode is 25%, use the Up and Down Arrow keys to increase and decrease the percentage. Note that depending on where you are in the navigation pane, the tree view, the scope of the change might be limited. For example if you have Computer selected in the Navigation Pane the View Mode setting you make doesn't propagate further than this view of your file system. Likewise any change you make in a particular Windows library only affects that library. So if you wanted Details Mode everywhere you would need to set it in multiple places.
You really want to avoid two dimensional grids of icons or a list that repeat horizontally as you'll soon get pretty lost and find it hard to find files and folders. The Details Mode is really the best. Use the Left and Right Arrow keys to explore the extra informational columns for each file to discover things like file type, date modified, size etc.

Views split button I accidentally got into a control I didn't understand in Windows 7 explorer. I believe it is the "views button.I changed the value and now am not sure how this effects Jaws or how my system performs. I looked it up in help but the information isn't helpful. It says we can press the left side of the button but Jaws can only open the right side with right arrow. Left arrow or space bar doesn't do a thing.. I know that I can make the same changes to the view from the menu so am not concerned about clicking the left side of the button.
