Re: How does one start Microsoft Narrator at the Login Screen in Windows 10?


Hi Ann,

When Keith speaks about the logon screen I assume he means the password screen. If Windows Key+Control+Enter does not start Narrator then nothing else will either, what you describe first would require him to have entered the password to log in and get to the desktop.
Also, Windows Key+R for the Run command can be pressed anywhere if you are logged in, there is no need to first press Control+Escape which is exactly the same as pressing the Windows key anyways.
Lastly, you can go to the Run dialogue and type Narrator, but you can also simply press the Windows key to bring up the Windows search box and type Narrator and press enter to start it.
In most cases even typing the first 3 or 4 letters of Narrator will bring it up in the Windows search box and pressing enter will start it.

Starting on the logon screen, the shortcut Windows+ctrl+enter will
work if it is set up, but not if it isn't. So if you try the
shortcut on the logon screen and nothing happens, try this:

1. Press ctrl+escape to get to the start menu.
2. Type Windows+r (run)
3. Type "narrator" and press enter.

Once you have Narrator running, tinker with the settings. Be sure
the 'use shortcut key' is checked. If you want narrator to start
automatically on the logon screen, check that setting. There is also
a setting to start Narrator automatically after logon, which can be checked.

The list of Narrator shortcut keys will display when you press capslock+f1.
