Hi, Tanguy. Insert plus F4 only quits JAWS. Winkey plus INSERT plus F4 quits JAWS and restarts it, as well as reporting any errors to Vispero.

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
