Re: Repairing JAWS 13

Hi,
here's yet another method of copying the full path of a file:
1. In window explorer, select the file.
2. Press shift+application key to open an extended context menu.
3. Choose copy as path.
4. You can then paste this into the run dialog, or anywhere else.

David,

As always, both helpful and interesting. I wonder if virtualizing the window
with the file's name would be a slightly easier, or more familiar, way to
copy the name, as opposed to the file, into the run window.

Thus, locate the file and press JAWS key+alt+w.

I just went through this procedure. The one drawback is that when I
virtualized the window, JAWS didn't land me right back at the filename I
wanted. Instead, it took me to the top of the list and I had to arrow around
a little to find it again. Once I did, I could take the usual steps to
select and copy.
