Re: How to Get an "Applications Key" on a Lenovo Laptop?

I see I am not responding to the latest message here. So, someonetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
may have pointed this out (and I just missed it), but the below
steps did not seem to work.
First, I had to plug in a regular U S B full keyboard. Otherwise
JawsKey plus 8 on the home row simulates a left mouse click.
Perhaps I didn't have to do the keyboard, but I had one handy. I
think JawsKey plus 8 just brings up Keyboard manager.
Second, Alt plus H, on my system, brought up help topics, not a
key assignment menu.
Third, I think the command is control plus a, not Alt plus H, but
I couldn't get that to work either.
I'm going to try to check out keyboard manager in JAWS Help. I've
not messed with that very much.

manager will open.
2. Press ctrl+alt+d to load the default .jkm file. You should hear
that the default file is loaded.
3. Be sure that you are on the default section by pressing insert+
4. tab once to enter the list of script key assignments.
5. Find "SendApplicationKey" by pressing the first few letters.

7. press the print screen key to assign it.
8. Press tab to go to ok and enter to confirm it.

This depends on which Lenovo model you are using. You cansometimes
swap the insert key and the applications key. Since insert isthe
typical insert key, that may not be entirely desirable; however,with
the laptop keyboard, the capslock key becomes the JAWS key.Depending
upon personal preference, this may be a good way to get both aJAWS
key, which you absolutely need, and an applications key, whichis
useful. I don't think I've ever found a use for the printscreen key.
