Screen shade also works on my desktop computer.
It also has windows 10 with jaws 2020.
It was custom-made, so no specific brand to specify.

 

Thanks,abraham

Yes both the screen on my laptop and my external monitor go black.

 

I have a Lenovo laptop which a plug into a docking station.

I am I have windows 10 with jaws 2020.

 

I would suggest pressing the windows key plus the letter P.
This should provide the interface to determine how your external monitor is viewed by your Windows operating system.
Or at least that just a combination I use and Lenovo.

 

Thanks,abraham

Are you able to actually see the screen turn black? Also what computer are you using?

Hi All

 

Has anyone else found that the screen shade feature doesn’t work if you are using a desktop PC with an external monitor? I activate the command and it reports that it’s on but I can see that it isn’t. I’ve changed Monitors and it makes no difference. I’m using the latest builds of both JAWS and windows 10.
