I saw some other programs that were handled in a similar way, so I think
it's a Windows 8 issue rather than a FS issue.

The point is that no one even knows that folder exists nor the programs
in it until an extensive exploration.

Is it FS, or is it the way 8.X stores files?

That's incredible!
Why on earth would Freedom Scientific want to hide all those programs in
such a ridiculous manner?
Why not name that folder something more meaningful such as ... I don't
know.
Let's have a contest to come up with a more meaningful folder name and
suggest it to FS?

I recently saw that someone was wanting to find HJPad and couldn't do
so. In Windows 7, this is fairly easy, but not so in Windows 8.1. I
got curious, so I started looking around. I finally found it, and here's
how I did it.

1. Press the Windows key to get to the start screen if you aren't
already there.

2. Tab once. You will land on a button that says apps.

3. Press the space bar to activate this button.

4. You will then be presented with a very long list of everything
that
is on your computer. Type jaws. It will automatically go into the
search box.

5. Start arrowing down. The item you want is called "utilities JAWS
16." I assume if you're using a different version number you would
find the same thing with the number of your JAWS version. I only have
16 on the particular machine I tested on.

6. Press enter on this item, and you will find all of the things
you
used to find in the JAWS program group in all programs on older
versions of Windows.

Hope this helps someone out.
