Re: Getting to the JAWS start-up menu

Thanks. I should have mentioned that I tried that, but JAWS did
not appear in the list, even after pressing the Notification
Chevron button.
I know Jaws is running in the system tray because I always run it
that way. Still, despite having a list of nearly 20 things in the
system tray, JAWS isn't there.
Just to double check, I did an Alt-tab all the way around,
circling through all running applications. No Jaws there either.
So, it just has to be in the system tray somewhere.

The MS keystroke to reach the system tray is Windows key+b. I
believe this shortcut applies to both Win 7 and 8.

Ed Marquette]] I know I've done this before, but cannot now
remember how. With a regular keyboard (one with a numeric
keypad), one can reach the Jaws menu with insert key plus j. On a
Windows 7 (or earlier machine), JAWS key plus F-11 will produce a
system tray from which one can activate the Jaws menu.
The Jaws key plus F-11 doesn't work in Windows 8, and I have only
one working JAWS key on this laptop (the capslock key).
So, in laptop mode (with the keyboard) Capslock plus j simulates a
mouse action.
Any ideas how to get to the Jaws menu when Jaws is set to run in
the system tray?
This is not urgent. I can just plug in an external keyboard
temporarily, but one would think there ought to be a way. Perhaps
my real problem is the inability to get to the system tray in
Windows 8.
