moderated Re: Letter G not appearing on the screen with JAWS

Hi Bill and all,

This is a problem that I also have.

I don't have game bar switched on. Sometimes I'll be typing away and when I hit the letter 'g' I'll end up somewhere else - maybe in Outlook, maybe on the internet - could be anywhere except the game bar.

I restart Jaws and the problem goes away ... until next time.

I thought it was an oddity in my Jaws software.

Cheers
Zel

Hi, Turab and Mike. Here is what I also found on Google.

As per the information, it seems that you might have pressed on Windows key + G to open Game bar. I suggest that you use the follow the steps below and check if it helps

To Turn Off Game Bar in Xbox app
1. Open the Xbox app.
2. Click/tap on the Settings icon on the left, click/tap on Game DVR at the top, and turn off the Record game clips and screenshots using Game DVR setting at the top.

Thankyou guys
Bill I didn't find Gaming. I have turned off Game Mode and Xbox Game bar, but the problem persists.
Pamila and David, this happens quite frequently and hence rebooting or restarting JAWS would not be a convenient option.
Look forward to other views.

Hi, Turab. Under Settings>Gaming, try also turning off the Game Bar,
which is the first category of settings under Gaming.

Hi all,
I am unable to type the letter 'g' while using JAWS 2021. I have to
press windows + g. Only then the problem gets resolved. I have used
default mode in JAWS and also turned off Game mode as per Freedom
Scientific help desk's suggestions to no avail.
Humbly request solutions as this is quite irritating.
Thankyou
Best
Turab
