Re: right clicking on shortcuts

Adrian Spratt

Hi. When you're on the desktop, do you confirm that the icon/shortcut you
want is selected? If JAWS says "unselected," right-clicking will bring up
options for the desktop, not the icon.

To select an item where you have focus, press spacebar. To unselect, press

I hope this helps. I have XP, so it's possible there some other explanation
for Windows 7.

Subject: right clicking on shortcuts

I am taking a class for windows seven. I am to create shortcuts on my
desktop for easier acess and I am having trouble right clicking on them.
When I select a shortcut and right click it unselects and opens a menu for
the desktop. I need to make shortcuts for my flash drive and some other
things also. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Mike
