Well, Jaffar doesn’t want to *remove* jaws from the computer via control panel – he could kill the processes using task manager.

Yes, insert-f4 works *most of the time*, but if JAWS is already unresponsive for some reason, it may not/may leave thigns behind. There is more than one process associated with JAWS on most computers. I believe I have at least three or four – the main jaws programme, a synth executable, the oCR software, and maybe something else (not checking task manager right now).

What is the point of Kill JAWS?  You can just hit JAWS Key plus F4 to exit JAWS, or remove it completely through the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs.


Love in Christ
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

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!
