Hi, Tom. If using JAWS, and Windows 10,


1. Open Control Panel.

2. Open File Explorer Options.

3. Use CONTROL plus TAB to navigate to the View tab.

4. Look for an option which says:


“Show File path in Title Bar”


5. Press SPACE to turn this option on.

6. TAB to Apply, and press ENTER.

7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

8. When needing a file path, navigate to the file.

9. Press INSERT plus T to read the title. The file path will now be in the title with INSERT plus T.

Subject: How To Re-Read Download File Path


Hello, everyone.


Occasionally, when I download a file from Firefox, I get an alert saying that the file has been stored in a temporary file folder on my computer’s C. Drive.


The file path is often quite long, and I sometimes have to download the file several times in order to get enough of an idea of the path to actually find the file.


I tried using the Jaws cursor to re-read the file path, but was not successful.


Is there a better way to re-read the download file path?


I’m sure there’s a way to go into Firefox and tell it where I want all downloaded files to go, but I haven’t figured that procedure out yet.


Thanks for any help.
