Good afternoon listers; insert plus f4 unloads jaws, alt plus control plus jay restarts him. I do not understand anything about command lines and such, but just use the two key strokes I mentioned above and you will be good to go.

Why use such a complicate method to do something one can do with the single keystroke, Jaws Key + F4.

You can kill JAWS by executing the taskkill command:
taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f
The problem with this approach is that you will also need to kill all of JAWS' child processes. When I have some time I'll go through task manager and see all of the different processes that JAWS has. You would use taskkill to kill them off one by one before restarting JAWS.
You also need to be running an elevated command prompt to execute taskkill.
If done successfully, here is what the output looks like:
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]
