If you set JAWS to laptop lay out mode, you can use all of the desktop commands, and have three JAWS keys.

The caps lock, the numpad insert, and the insert extended somewhere else on your computer.

That is the default for the laptop layout mode. With the desktop layout mode, you have the numpad insert and the extended insert, but not the caps lock.

Have a great one!

Hi Robin and All,

I believe the insert key can function as a JAWS key in the desk top mode setup. The Caps Lock key does what the insert key does, but only in lap top mode.

Blessings and All the Very Best,

I like having Caps Lock be a JAWS key.  This is helpful for commands where my right hand hits the other key, such as to check the time.  In Window Eyes, enabling the Caps lock as an alternate allowed me to use either Caps Lock or to continue using the Insert key, which I did based on whichever hand was hitting the additional key.  It seems that when I enable Caps Lock as a JAWS key, that neither the regular or the extended insert keys  continue to function as a JAWS key.  Is there a way to enable both?
