moderated Re: Kill jaws process completely

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>

I only have Jaws 2018, 2019, and 2020 and there is no file on my hard drive called jfwkill.exe.

I did a search of my C drive and found nothing.

So, I think things have changed enough that the JFWkill.exe is no longer used.

Hi Jaffar,


The steps below are for an older version of Jaws, but hopefully they'll give you a shove in the right direction:




if your using jaws15,
you will find the jaws kill at:


"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"


if you really need to you could create shortcut to desktop,


the windows-key+insert-key+f4=kil/unload jaws from memory.


Desktop Icon Steps:


if your wanting to create shortcut fror,

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

1, desktop;

2, ctrl+spacebar making sure there is no icon selected,

3, press applications key, or shift f10,

up or down arrow and enter on,
new sub-menu,

4, arrow and enter on, new shortcut,

your now being asked,
Type the location of the item:
here you would type in:

"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"

5, tab next enter,

here your being asked to give the shortcut a name,
you will see,
"C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\15.0\JFWKill.exe"
you can change this to killjaws, or whatever you wish, now tab finish, press

heck you could even create an hotkey if your little heart desires.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Hi. What is the key stroke to completely kill of the Jaws process? I
know there is a way but I forgot as it was told me years ago. Thanks
and cheers!
