To get to internet explorer:

1.Type "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana/Search box. Saying "Hey Cortana, open Internet Explorer" isn't useful here.

Note: you can also just press your windows key and type Internet Explorer.

2.Right click on "Internet Explorer" or use your applications key to:

                add as a tile on your Start Menu click "Pin to Start."

add it on your taskbar simply click "Pin to taskbar."

 

Setting Internet Explorer or Firefox as your default browser in Windows 10.

 

Press your windows key.

Arrow up to “Settings” and press enter.

There will be a dialog (pop up) window. Tab until you hear “System. Display, notifications, apps, power”. Press Enter

You will now hear the word “display”. Press down arrow until you hear “Default Apps”

Press tab on “Default Apps”

Now press tab until you hear “Web Browser” Press Enter.

There will be another pop up window press tab until you hear the browser you want to be your default. Press enter on your selection.

Press Alt F4 to close the window.

 

I hope this helps!

Instead of pressing enter, press your applications key. Down arrow to “open with”, press right arrow and then down arrow until you find the program you want to use to open the document. You can set Internet Explorer or Firefox as your default browser as well.

When I pressed enter on a file in my documents or the desktop, Edge opened automatically. How do I stop that?

Use Internet Explorer not Edge. Edge is not fully compatible.

Subject: MS Edge and Jaws?

 

Can someone tell me if this program, which seems to be new with Windows 10 is Jaws accessible? For instance, I entered on a file I wanted to open and the Edge launched, but I can’t figure out how to actually access the file I want.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren
