Will do, Dave.

I may be able to get sighted assistance here if I get into a bind.

Will let you know if more help is needed.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Hello there;

Well, if your considering windows live mail, and your going to use a gmail
account, windows live will setup the account almost automatically.

If you need further assistance, let me know, I'll send you steps.

David:

It's funny you should ask this, because I am investigating this very
question as we speak.

What I have heard is that Windows Live Mail is closest to Outlook Express,
which I currently use on a Windows XP machine.

So, I'll probably start with the Live Mail option.

The trick will be synchronizing it with my personal G-mail account.

If you have any thoughts on how to gget Windows Live Mail, and how to
synchronize it with my g-mail account, that would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tom in Michigan

Hello sir;

Not sure if you no this,
However, there's one decision you will need to make and that is,
What email client will you use, since windows 7 doesn't come with a email
client built in.

You have choice, windows live mail which is free,
MSoutlook 2007 or 2010 in fact even 2003 would work, also thunder bird,
which I no nothing about.
These are just a few.

Hello there;

The easiest way is to,

1, go to start menu, you will hear, search box edit,
Type in, theme, you then will hear;
Change the theme press enter.
Now you have landed in the list of themes,

The trick is now to find the classic theme,
You will need to use your arrow keys,

Once you hear jaws announce classic theme, press enter, you should hear a
sound, signifying the change, now alt+f4,

This is mostlikely the easier way,
This can also be done through the personalized items.
Through the desktop.

Hope this helps.

In your last e-mail, you wrote:

"The only change you may want, is to set the theme to classic, thus
taking
the Desktop out of the alt+tab cycle."

Can you tell me exactly how to accomplish this in Windows 7, once I get
Jaws

installed?

Thanks so much!

Hello there;

Actually?

Things should work fine right out of the box.

The only change you may want, is to set the theme to classic, thus
taking
the
Desktop out of the alt+tab cycle.

Other wise?
Things should work just fine,
And really no need to navigate since you can find things through the
search
edit within the start menu.

Hi, everyone.

Does anyone have a list of settings to optimize Jaws performance in
Windows
7?

I am about to get a new work laptop with Windows 7, and would like to
get
things started off on the right foot if possible.

Thanks very much.
