This may be a long shot, but if your new laptop has a touchpad, you may be grazing it when you do that keystroke combination.  This happened to me until I turned off the touchpad.

Hi Jed,


Did you make sure that the window is maximized?

Take care.  Go Rams!

I type out everything I want to remember. That way instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it was, I spend the time looking for where I saved it!

this issue is driving me crazy.  It baffles me why this is even
happening.  This program has worked flawlessly for years, and now
since i switched laptops, running the same program, and jaws, why when
i do this particular action, the cursor just by some sort of magic,
moves up several spaces.  It makes no sense to me.  Bottom line, i
need to get this working.  If anyone has any ideas, that would be
enormously helpful  Like i said, it just makes no sense, why when i
route jaws to PC, the cursor would just move up a few spaces, and
highlight the wrong item.  is there any way to do some sort of jaws
