thanks everyone for your replies. It’s a shame it doesn’t seem like there is a built in feature/setting to turn it on permanently. Still the ability to turn of the display is still a handy feature and who knows maybe they’ll add in a permanent setting in some later version. at least there is a layered keystroke so it’s at least nice and easy to just turn on/off . Mario, I did see your reply/suggestion, I was really just hoping for a straight forward setting in Jaws somewhere, I’m not really sure how to amend the auto start commands in Jaws and I don’t want to accidently break jaws 😊 since I mainly use my desktop and only use the laptop occasionally (where screen shade would be used) I’ll just stick with manually turning the feature on/off, but thank you for your suggestion

To the best of my knowledge, no it can't be turned on permanently. For others that are unfamiliar with this Jaws feature it's explained below.
Note: This feature is only available with Jaws2018 & Newer, running Windows 10. I'm not sure, but possibly Windows 8.1 as well.

Subject: Permanently activating Jaws screen shade
I recently discovered Jaws has a screen shade function which turns off the display of your PC. It seems to be a temporary option however, as every time I restart my PC I have to reenable screen shade. I have tried both the layered key stroke and setting screen shade through quick settings , but as mentioned both seem to only activate jaws screen shade until I boot down my laptop. Does anyone know is there a way of setting jaws so screen shade is always on?
