in response to your questions:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
pressing insert+f7 gives you a listing of all of the links on a page,
whether they were visited or not. pressing enter or tabbing to the
activate button and pressing enter or spacebar on the one selected
activates the link. you can also tab to a move to button and pressing
the enter or spacebar will select the link on the webpage without
activating the link. there might be a quick key to do what you want;
I'll have to see, unless someone finds it first.
if forms mode has been set to manual,
pressing the enter or spacebar on an edit field turns on forms mode and
pressing the escape key or the pc cursor (numpad plus key when numlok is
off) turns off forms mode.
pressing the application key (to the right of the right windows key),
shift+f10 (if you don't have an application key) or pressing the right
mouse click key (numpad star (times/multiply)) will most likely give you
an opportunity to save the link as something, depending on what the link
is for and if the website author permits the downloading of whatever it is.

Subject: Follow up web browsing question in JAWS 18
As I continue the transition from Window Eyes to JAWS 18 I have the
following web browsing command questions.
I know <U> can be used to browse unvisited links, and <V> for visited
links, and <F> for web elements. Is there a key stroke to browse by
links regardless if they have been visited or not?
On a related topic, I see <E> is the command to navigate by edit
fields. Are <space bar> and <ESC> the JAWS equvilent to the WE
<CTRL>-<SHIFT>-A for toggling on/off within an edit field?
In WE I could use the <CTRL>-<SHIFT>-F10 command to right click on a
link and get the "save link as" command. What would the JAWS
equvilent be using JAWS 18 and Firefox, on a Windows 10 machine?
