Steve says it unloads jaws and then restarts Jaws. Insert+f4 just unloads.

My objective is to make Jaws restart seemlessly so that users are not forced to deal with keystrokes. Some of my cleints get nervous and lose self-trust when its time to shutdown jaws and restart it manually.
Since this process is used when installing Jaws (automatically restart when install is complete), i thought there was a command line that could do the job.

Why not use the Keyboard Manager and assign a new hotkey to the ShutDownJAWS script? We go through this sort of thing in the forthcoming windows Keyboard Power User Guide book. You could add
a keystroke like, perhaps, shift+ctrl+z, or some other keystroke that you can remember, that doesn’t use a JAWSKey, and that isn’t used by other programs you’re using, so that you can use it to do what we do with JAWSKey+F4.
thank you. However my initial was about Jaws restart, not Windows.
Nevertheless this would be helpful in other circumstances.

I have this DOS command in my desktop shortcut.
C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00
the 's is for shutdown, -r is for reboot
the -f is for force (It doesn't work as well as it did in Win7
The -t is the time to wait -- 0 mili seconds
The command shutdown.exe might work without the path.
You could move the shutdown.exe file to your root directory.

This is because i'm using a program on my laptop that disables the Jaws key. And th only way to restore it is to restart Jaws. But i wish i could write a batch file that would make it automatically after this program has been run.
thank you for any suggestions
Have a nice day
