What happens when you press the windows key, then, exactly?

Are you sure you are in fact pressing the Windows key?

I only ask this question because, in my experience, there are some people who have gotten the Windows and Applications keys confused.

Have you tried using ctrl-escape instead of the windows key? This is an alternative way of accessing the start/search. Of course it won’t work for windows key combinations like windows key + f.

Have you tried to press the Windows key a second time? On my laptop I sometimes just hear “Cortana”, but the search box does not seem to come up. If I press escape and then press the Windows Key again I always seem to get the search box.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  That worked.  Fortunately, there was already an icon on the desktop …… I have no clue how to create a shortcut for the desktop.  Yes, I still have a lot to learn.

 

This list is great!  Thanks to everybody!

Why not simply put a shortcut for Internet Explorer on the desktop and access it that way?

The Windows key or the Windows key + S brings up the search box but it will not allow me to type anything in that box.

Try and see if Windows + S brings  up the search box.

Hello,

 

I usually press the windows key, then the letter I and then enter to get on the internet.  This evening, when I press the windows key it will not allow me to type the letter I, or any other letter for that matter.

 

Using windows 10 and Jaws 18.

 

I can’t access the internet right now so any help would be greatly appreciated …… thank you in advance.  

 

Laura
