For the task manager, press control+alt+delete and then press alt+t.
You hopefully will land on the processes tab.
Then, you can arrow down through the running applications/processes.
If you know one is misbehaving, press alt+e or tab to end process and press enter, then enter again and it should kill that process.

Thanks for your response. I can't use F4 with other functions. Not sure what task manager is or how to use it.

Yesterday a friend helped me fill in the province of British Columbia's
speculation tax form online. He ran into a snag, so started again with a
fresh format and we sent the completed form off. I could not close the
first form but shut down the computer. I don't know if it's related, but
since then I cannot close Word files or emails. I can open and read them
and move them, but I can't close them. If I'm in my email list, I can use
Alt tab to get out of an open email, then delete or move it, but the open
email is still there. I assume that somehow I've frozen the Alt F4
function. My only resort is to shut down the computer. When I start it
up again, emails I've deleted both from In and Deleted folders reappear.
Any thoughts?

I'm using Windows 10 and JAWS 17, though I plan to purchase JAWS 2020 in a
few weeks.

I'd appreciate any help.
