I realize that CTRL+SHIFT+CAPS LOCK+J, will open the JAWS menue, when you have JAWS set to use the laptop keyboard layout but, why make it so complicated, when CAPS LOCK+J, would be so much simplar. I am not aware of any situation, where CAPS LOCK+J, is used to perform any function for Windows or any third-party software package.

This is one I learned from this list just a couple of days ago. The keystroke is Control + shift + caps lock to get to the menus from the JAWS laptop layout.
I also have a JAWS shortcut on my desktop, and if you just press enter on that you get into the menus. I also put JAWS in the tray, so I know this works.
I hope this helps.
Take care and stay safe!

Subject: Accessing jaws menu in laptop layout
I have occasion to use the laptop layout with Jaws 2020.
However, I'm unable to access the jaws menu as I prefer to run it from the system tray.
When I use the keyboard shortcut of jaws key (capslock in this case)+j, the only thing that's announced is blank.
Interestingly, when I plug in a keyboard that has an insert key and use that instead of capslock it works perfectly.
Does anyone know if the key to access the jaws menu from system tray is different in laptop layout?
Jaws help doesn't seem to have the answer.
