Marilyn,

"So to make sure - the Windows key is the one right next to the bottom left control key, right?"
Depends on your keyboard, but on a standard full 101-key keyboard, that is where one of them is.

Sieghard,

So to make sure - the Windows key is the one right next to the bottom left
control key, right?

Also, when I leave the web and then return and press k and find my place,
then is that place marker operation cancelled? When I need to leave the web
page again, I would repeat all those keystrokes?

Thanks.

Marilyn

That would be my suggestion, just press Control+Windows Key+K before you go
to Word to set a temporary placemarker, then after you return to the web
page if your place has been lost press "k" and you are back where you were.

Regards,
Sieghard

Would using place markers help?

Unfortunately, this is a common symptom when leaving and returning to a web
page window. This also happens to me when downloading talking books from the
National Library for the Blind. I don't know of any way to prevent this The
only thing I have found is to look for a word on the web page, and after
returning to it, search for that word using CONTROL plus the letter F. This
cuts down on the time needed to relocate your place on the web page.

Hello everyone,

I am encountering a very frustrating situation. I am reading something on
the internet, switch to my Word document to make a note of something for
future reference, then switch back to the web page with the intent of
continuing where I left off. However, instead of my cursor being where I
left off before the switch, it is at the top of the web page and I have to
arrow down through everything I have already read to find my place.

Why does this happen? Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Marilyn
