How is that different from just pressing the Windows key which also brings up a search box?

Maybe this has been answered already, but

Control-escape will land you in a search box.

Type in your file name, and, without even hitting enter, you can start arrowing down, and your file, if it exists, will be listed. Hit the applications key and arrow up or down till you see "open file location," and you will be able to move your file, if you like, to a more logical directory for finding it again.

Hello, everyone.



I am having a problem when trying to search for a lost file on my computer.



What I used to do was to go to my computer, and then the drive I thought the file was saved in. I'd then hit control F, and the search would proceed.



I'd be notified when the search was completed, and I could then tab to get the results, usually telling me where the lost file was located.



I can't seem to get this to work any longer.



I'm using Jaws 17 on a Windows 7 laptop here.
