moderated Re: getting Jaws on the desktop


 

Hello Bill,

That all depends on which View yu select, by default it might be showing as a grid, but you can display this folder just as any other folder with small icons, medium icons, large icons, a list or details and the standard folder shortcut keys apply, e.g. Control + Shift + numberRow 6 for Details. If you select to show it as a list or details all apps are listed one below the other and of course first letter navigation applies so simply typing J will take you instantly to Jaws.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for this, I didn't know that's how you're supposed to navigate the folder. Wish I'd known that before! Thanks again!

Hi, Sieghard. Even if Madison is using Windows 10, one thing he/she may not know is that in the Apps Folder (accessed through shell:AppsFolder), one does not use the up and down arrows to navigate through the files. The files are laid out horizontally, and navigation is accomplished by using the left and right arrows.
Because of this, the JAWS application could have been missed, if the up and down arrows were being used as the method of navigation in the Apps Folder.

No offense, but maybe you are not doing something the way it is explained.
If you have Jaws installed on your computer and are using Windows 10 the Shell:AppsFolder command will definitely show you a list which contains Jaws.
Are you using Windows 10 or Windows 7? Don't think you said and I don't recall if anybody asked.

The issue with that is that Jaws isn't on that list.

Hey there, Madison, BZ here again, grin! There's another way to do this in windows ten. 1. Hit windows key plus r which will bring up the run dialog.
2. Type shell:appsfolder and then press enter. This will bring up a list of all your applications. Down arrow until you hear jaws and then hit your applications key and go down until you hear create shortcut and then press enter. You'll get a message that will say something like do you want windows to create a shortcut anyway and then press enter. I'm doing the message off the top of my head so that's not the verbatim message you'll hear but this method will create the jaws item on your desktop. If you're not comfortable doing this and you need assistance, just let me know and I'll be happy to help you. BZ!

Hi all,
I went to my desktop and the Jaws shortcut doesn't seem to be on there. I went into the search box and found Jaws, but when I pressed shift f10 to create a shortcut I got 5 options:
Run as administrator
Open file location
Unpin from taskbar
Pin to start
Uninstall

Can someone please tell me, what other way (s) can I create a shortcut for Jaws on my desktop? Even though you've all provided me with other ways to start Jaws, I'd still like to check and see if my shortcut key is still set or not. Thanks
Madison
