Is this on a laptop keyboard?
If so, have you tried an external keyboard?
It sounds like the f4 is being ignored, so if it is a laptop, the function keys may need the FN key pressed to behave normally or you have a defective key somewhere.
Alt by itself brings up the ribbon.
So something is definitely not right.

I should havehave noted that when I hit alt F4 what comes up is "upper ribbon."

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.

HTH,

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

Are you able to use alt +4 to kill other applications?

Are you able to kill the problematic apps using the task manager and task function?

Thanks,abraham

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.

Don
