Thank you for the list. Now, I need to find my authorization code so I will have it to load Jaws once my new master allows me to touch it, grin. I couldn't do anything except alt-tab between the Narrator window and some part of the setup which gave the the choice of yes or no, but did not tell me what I was replying to. As I didn't want to make a choice, I shut down with the power button and haven't turned it on again. Yes, I do plan to, but maybe I will wait for my new adapter so I can hook up a monitor in case someone stops by to read for me if I can't get Narrator to do it. At the present time, I don't think I could get Dell or Microsoft to connect with me and finish the setup.Â

Thanks again for the list.
