Hi tom,

 

That’s definitely the right key stroke. the key stroke should work on any property box, so you could try it on just a normal file on your computer to see if the key stroke works, just so you  know you are doing the right thing. All that being said though, looking at the message from bill it sounds like your one drive isn’t showing the file size for some reason, so that may be why the key stroke I suggested isn’t helping.

Paul:

 

I ttried alt insert followed by the letter W here after hitting alt enter for properties, but couldn’t get it to work in terms of giving me one drive storage information.

 

Am I missing something?

Hi,

 

Just following on from this, after pressing Alt and enter to bring up the properties window, as a quicker way of getting the file size, rather than using the jaws key and B to read all, instead, if you press Alt, jaws  key and W, it virtualises the properties window so you can then use the arrow keys to navigate  and can very quickly access the file size information ,  by just pressing the down arrow a couple of times to get to the file size information. When finished press escape to exit virtualisation, and then escape again to exit the properties window as usual. Hope this might help anyone who didn’t already know the key stroke for this, definitely makes getting folder size quicker and easier.

As I think I said yesterday, the alt enter command does not seem to give the folder size, at least on my Windows 10 computer here.

 

It gives other information like you would expect, but not the file size, number of files and folders, etc..

 

I find this strange, because it seems to work well for other drives.

If using JAWS,and with your focus on the OneDrive folder, or for that matter any folder you want this information for, press Alt Enter for Properties and then press Insert B and you will evntually hear the size of the folder.
