No problem, Sieghard.

It's all taken care of now. And, I learned something in the process.

Thanks again!

Sorry, Tom, I thought you knew that when I said default settings I meant to
go into settings and press Control+Shift+D, sometimes I assume too much
instead of providing step-by-step instructions.

Thanks, Larry.

I went into Jaws settings and disabled the auto FS Cast announcements, so
we'll see if the change sticks.

If not, I'll wait for the next time one comes up, and disable them at that
point.

Tom,
Usually, you will see the FSCast notifications the first time you run JAWS
with a new version. So for instance, if you have JAWS 2018 open for the
first time that box will come up.
Once you dismissed it, you won't see it again until another update or
version is installed.

I shut down and re-booted my computer for another reason, and this
time, when Jaws opened, I did not get the FS podcast notification.

I wonder if it just comes upp periodically?

I've looked for default settings, but can't seem to find them in the
Jaws menus.

If you can tell me where I can find them, I'll make the change that way.

When it first comes up you Shift+Tab once to Not show this in the
future, might be slightly different wording, but it's simply a
checkbox, check it and tab to OK.
You can also do it by searching default settings for "FS", the
following is the only option which shows up:
Notify about new FSCasts not checked
Miscellaneous- that means it's in Settings under the Miscellaneous group.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hello, everyone.

I'm setting up a new Windows 10 computer with Jaws, and would like to
know how to disable the automatic FS Cast announcements.

I have other ways of getting this information, and am trying to
simplify things as much as possible.

I'll likely have more questions as I continue the computer setup
process, but, I promise, I'll try to keep my questions to a minimum.

Thank you!
