All it does when I press it is jump to another icon on my desktop. When I alt
tab Jaws doesn't come up, so what does that mean?

So when you hit insert-j, nothing happens?
DO you have JAWS set to display in its own window or running from system tray?

I was referring specifically to insert+j then up arrow once.
For me, that lands on the exit button. Nothing about a version number.

Hello Richard.

I'm not sure what you mean by saying that "it doesn't work if you have jaws in
the system tray". Unless something has changed recently, it does work here in
this fashion. I have not had JAWS set to use its own window/not be in the system
tray for many years. I also don't have JAWS 2021, though, so it's possible
something has changed...

Insert+j then up arrow does not work if you have Jaws in the System tray.
But, insert+j followed by control+insert+v works in any setup.
And, control+insert+v works in any and all programs.
Twice quickly puts it in the virtual window so you can copy it by using
shift+the arrow keys depending on how much you want to copy.

Hey Madison.
A good way to get JAWS version information displayed inn a convenient little
window is to go to the JAWS menu with jaws key + j, and hit up arrow once
(probably, this might be version dependent I suppose, but it's usuallya t the
bottom) to "about". Hit enter and you'll get what you need.

As for outlook, I am not sure quite what it is that you want. You want to know
your outlook version number and then paste it to someone? If you are getting
that info with tge command JAWS commands to display the version information of
an executable, this isn't displayed on screen so you can't copy and paste it as
though it was a line of text placed in an edit field.
It isn't. But if you wanted you could use speech history to retrieve it.
Press insert space, then h, then up arrow til you find the text that you need,
then copy and paste, and press escape.
There are usually more efficient ways to get version info. I seem to remember
outlook having an 'about" screen somewhere, too, but at the moment I can't find
it. Haha

Hi all,
How do I get the exact version of Jaws that I'm running? Also, when I do the
keystroke to get the Outlook version I copy and paste it, but it doesn't show up
in the message, but as attachments, none of which are the actual version info
they just seem to be recent messages, what am I doing wrong?
Thanks Madison
