Hi Mike,

Give this a try:
Taking the Desktop out of the loop when using Alt + Tab.
You want to change your desktop theme to Windows Classic. Try the
1. While on the desktop make sure nothing is selected. Press control +
spacebar until you hear not selected. You can also press the F5 key.
2. Open your context menu, up arrow to personalize, & press enter.
3. Press down arrow until you get to an item called Windows7 Basic. Right
arrow to Windows Classic. Hit the enter key to make the
desired change.
4. Wait a few seconds or until you hear an audio sound effect confirming the
completion of this process. I would wait another 2
minutes or so as your computer is making lots of changes and you want to
allow lots of time for the process to complete.

Note: Also, changing desktop themes can possibly change your Sound Schemes
as well. So, you might have to alter your sound schemes to get the sounds
you want.

Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Thanks Bill.
Actually, these keys do the same as alt plus f4. They close the program to
where Jaws stops speaking. I still have to hit windows plus D to get to the
desktop. No big deal, except that sometimes I have to hit the keys twice to
get Jaws back to the desktop. It just takes a couple extra movements and
I'm lazy.

What I actually meant in my last message, Mike is that some users use ALT
plus F, then X.

I was a Window Eyes user. With W.E., when leaving a program I was
to the desktop. With Jaws, I have to hit windows-D to get there and
sometimes have to hit it twice. to return to desktop. Is there something
can change to get directly to desktop, upone closing a program?
