Hi, Tim. Once you do your CONTROL plus E and get your search results, you can tab twice and arrow up and down through the results. To see the whole window, try:
ALT plus INSERT plus W to virtualize the window. Then you can arrow up and down through the whole window and see all the text.
If you are using a laptop keyboard layout, it would be:
ALT plus CAPSLOCK plus W.
I hope this does what you need.

Subject: JAWS 17 with Windows 10 File Explorer search box, how to access the document results text display window?
When I am in Windows 10 File Explorer (used to be called Windows Explorer), I use control plus e to open the search box. I get the results I wanted, but I cannot figure out how to get to the segment of the screen where it shows part of the actual text of each document. I can get the text read by using the JAWS command to read current line, but you have to catch it all on the fly. I would like to be able to get into that display box and be able to navigate the text.
I realize I can use the JAWS speech history feature, insert plus space bar, then h, but it would be easier if there were a direct way for JAWS to navigate that display pane text.
Just to be clear, I am looking not for file names, but whether a document has the actual word(s) I enter in the text of the document. My need is to be able to make such a search in one pass on a folder with subfolders that have several hundred documents.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
