Makes some sense. So sounds like doing drag and drop of say a loose file in the documents folder as an example into a subfolder in the same larger folder creates the error I described.

Sieghard. I totally get your comment about using cut and paste. The gentleman I am working with knows about that but seems to be taking a class where they want him to learn about Drag and drop. I know...

Thanks Marten and Sieghard. Appreciate it!

Hi James,

The problem with drag and drop is, that both windows have to be visible on screen and as a jaws user you not always no this.

Hi.

Trying to learn how to do a drag and drop with JAWS. I've opened a folder with some files in it. Pressed Control + Insert + Numpad slash and I get that drag and drop and to move the PC cursor, JAWS cursor or touch pad to the location where I want to drop. When I move to another folder, and press the same keystrokes I get an error JAWS saying the drag and drop isn't found and it might be covered by another window then the drag and drop action is canceled.

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?

Thanks

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks
