Another way is to type right shift with dot 4. Then you can type in your
search query

One way to achieve this is to use the Keyboard Manager, find the script
called StartMenu, and assign a braille key to it.

Hi.



I'm currently running the latest version of both Windows 10 and JAWS 2019,
and I'd really like to know how in the world you do this on a Focus Perkins
braille keyboard. All I want to do is to do a search in Windows for
something, such as adding a Bluetooth connection. On a regular QWERTY
keyboard, all I do is just press and release the Windows key, and I'm in the
search field. On the Focus, however, when I enter the Windows key command,
it waits for me to issue another keystroke to do something. The ALT keys
are the same way. All I want to do is hit these keys and have them by
themselves do something, rather than be key modifiers. How do I do this?
Help!



Thanks in advance for any info on this.



Kevin and Jilly
