moderated Re: jfw and problem deleting more files than I want!!!;


 

If your 4 files were not one right after another then your command would have highlighted all files. If you want to select several files which are not together you have to go to the first one, press and hold the control key and then arrow to the next one, once you get there press spacebar and continue like this without ever letting go of the control key.

I often delete multiple files and I have never had the problem you describe with Jaws.

Hi George,

One thing you can do with Jaws is to press insert + number pad 2 while still holding the shift key, or before letting go of the shift key, this will tell you what is currently selected.

You mentioned that you checked to see what was highlighted, but I am not sure if you used the above command to check this.

 

HTH.

Hi List-

 

Well I have noticed a problem with Jaws and deleting files.  I had four files on a thumb drive I wanted to get rid of.  I highlighted them and then hit the delete key.  Well, all my files, (not folders) were deleted from the thumb drive.  I was able to recover most of them, but it took a lot of time and work and worry!!!

 

I then tried it on another thumb drive with NVDA....no problem, worked great!

 

Then I went back to Jaws and voila....it happened again, although this time I was ok.  Anyone have this kind of issue?  BTW can anyone recommend a good back up program that works with Jaws.

 

BTW I am using Windows 7 (up to date) and the latest and greatest version of Jaws.  From now on...I think I will delete one file at a time, rather than multiple file delete.

 

BTW I used the following to delete:

shift...down arrow and then delete

and I checked and highlighted ONLY the 4 files to delete...thanks.

 

 

Regards,



George

Think about:
60 years ago, Venezuela was 4th on the world economic freedom index.
Today, they are 179th and their citizens are dying of starvation.
In just the last 10 years, Venezuela was destroyed by democratic socialism, and
Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign; But Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation (after Hillary sold them 20% of our uranium…illegally).
But President Trump was the one investigated! (Proverbs 29:2)
