Hi, going strictly by memory, these steps may help you in emptying your trash folder-

First hit F6 until you get to where Jaws says Mail. 

Then in this order press the following keys: Alt f, i and t.  Then your should hear Jaws say something like Mail clean-up.  Next, down arrow once to where Jaws says ‘Empty Trash’ I believe.  Then press Enter.  It will ask you if you want to delete all items.  Press Yes.  Lastly, press F6 until you get to the inbox. 


I hope this helps.

When in Outlook 365 and in the list of emails in my Trash Folder, I often select all and permanently delete them.  One problem, when I use the Control plus A command to select all, JAWS does not speak anything to let me know they are selected.  I have enough residual vision to see that they are selected but I would certainly feel better if JAWS reinforced this.  I should say that I am using the latest 2021 release of JAWS and Windows 10.


Thanks in advance for any assistance,
