In my case, I'm the only user, and am on the one account, which has full administrative rights.
Since the shortcuts work with Jaws 2018, but not 2019, this is definitely a Jaws issue.

i am finding that icon shortcuts i make or change will not work unless i log on as the administrator. then the icon shortcuts i make will stick and work on the icons when i log back on as a standard user.

Hi,

I am also having this problem, but i'm not sure if it is due to the latest version of Jaws. It also happens with Narrator and NVDA.

I also can't seem to create a shortcut hotkey or at least not the one I want to create. For instance, pressing Alt+Enter to get in to a shortcut properties, then tabbing to the Hotkey field, and when I enter the Hotkey sequence of
alt+Shift+Control+f, then Apply it and press Ok. I go back to check and the Hotkey has not been created at all.

I wonder if it is some kind of weird annoying Windows 10 Home security issue that is causing all these problems?
I am running latest version of Windows 10 Home.

Another odd thing is using the bypass key, insert+3 doesn’t work either.

It is like Jaws 2019 on Windows 10 home just simply blocks those desktop shortcut keys.

Well, they say misery loves company. Good to know I’m not the only one.

The strange thing is, at work, with a similar setup, only it is Windows 10 Pro, the shortcut keystrokes work with Jaws 2019.

Not with my Windows 10 home…

I have been having this same problem, mainly with the Internet Explorer shortcut. In order to get it to work, I have to arrow to the shortcut and press ENTER on the shortcut. The hotkey assignment refuses to work much of the time.

Greetings,

I have done a clean install of both Jaws 2019, and Jaws 2018 on my Windows home 64 bit dell laptop.



If Jaws 2019 is running, the shortcut keystrokes I have set for my various programs do not work. IE, alt+shift+o for Outlook.

But, if I unload Jaws 2019 and run Jaws 2018 and press alt+shift+o Outlook opens.



These are the latest versions of both Jaws editions.



I obviously like some of the features in Jaws 2019, but will be running Jaws 2018 for the most part unless I can resolve this bloody annoying issue.



Thanks for any thoughts,

Richard
