Device Manager deals with hardware drivers. don't confuse Task Manager with the Device Manager.

Try this one...
hit windows key and the letter-x at same time.
arrow down through all until you hear device manager and hit enter if this allows you in, arrow down until you her the program giving you the problem. Once highlighted, tab down to close program and hit enter. If more, shift tab back to the list and arrow down to next program and then tab to close program and hit enter... repeat as necessary/needed.

The next thing I would advise is if you can do an operating system repair...

Don,

hit control +alt +delete key (above arrow keys) arrow down to device manager and hit enter arrow down until you hear programs currently running.
Microsoft Word for example.
If this is what is not being able to close, once you hear the MS Word, hit tab key until you hear close program and hit enter. It may take a few attempts hitting the close program button and may also take a few seconds to close the program. If other programs are needing closed, shift tab back to the list and arrow up or down until you hear the next program needing closed. again hit tab until you hear close program and hit enter. Repeat as needed...

Rick

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
