Re: Windows D or Windows M

Thanks for all the responses. Although I only use the Windows M, I always leave that choice up to my clients. This is especially with older versions of Jaws.
Because I’m right handed, and sometimes I forget there is a windows key on the right. I started with a older keyboard that had the control escape key. Dateing myself (lol).

Thanks for the good information on the differences.
I've experienced no issues using Windows M on my w10 machine.

The person who told your client to never useWindows M and to always use Windows D gave misinformation, as there arespecific times when either one is useful.

I also explained that she could use the windows D or M,and that the desktop would be selected with all APPS minimize.So in your opinion, what would you suggest?I realize that Windows plus D for desktop is the best answer forunderstanding a user command to get to the desktop, but does it matter ifthe user is knowledgeable when it comes to computers?JamesJames Malone, (916)212-5397http://www.tunecore.com
