In laptop mode, caps lock key reads previous word. That's why it can't be used.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

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
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
I hope this helps.
Take care and stay safe!

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
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.
