Hi Bill & All,
You can try assigning the shortcut keystroke from a different Jaws icon, and
I believe it will solve your disappearing keystroke problem.  I assign my
pin to Taskbar shortcut from this Jaws icon and never have to mess with it
after a Jaws build update.  Try the following:
1. Open the Start menu, navigate to the Programs folder and open it.
2. Use first letter navigation to the version of Jaws you want to assign the shortcut keystroke to.  Press the letter, J, until you reach JAWS2019, for example.
3. With the preferred version of JAWS highlighted Press enter or right arrow to open, up or down arrow to, JAWS, and this is the icon that you want to
use for creating the shortcut keystroke.
4. So, with the JAWS icon highlighted press, Alt + Enter, to open the JAWS
properties, or press the applications key or Shift + F10 to open the context
menu, and press enter on properties.
5. Assign your keystroke, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay,
and press Enter.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

The only way to correct this is to not update, or to put your choice of hotkey back into the shortcut for JAWS.

This happens to me too.  I didn't realize it happened when there was an update.  I thought I had accidently deleted the key stroke.  How do you stop this from happening?

Why oh Why does any Jaws update remove the hot key from the shortcut on the desktop.  Have to reset it every time.
