Re: [Bulk] Optimal Settings for Jaws on a Windows 7 Computer?

The mobile center choices maybe don't say 'function keys'. There is a choice between multi-media, which was the default on my lap top, and something else. the something else was the right choice.

Good luck!

I've googled turning off performance of the function keys on an HP windows 7 Laptop, but no one seems to have the problem of needing F10 to get to the menu bar or having F11 to get to full screen. I couldn't find anything.
My alt button doesn't work and Google doesn't display a search or I'm feeling Lucky button or I'd be fine.
Is this just a problem with HP computers?

Ah, this happened to me with my new laptop. Go into the control pane
and look for something called windows mobility center. That's where
I was able to change the performance of the function keys. It was
set on multi media and I changed it to standard.
