Thanks Bill. I never signed in to One Drive, and I didn’t know how to close (or even open) Ease of Access.
Thank you very, very much.
Is there any real advantage in keeping One Drive?

Hi, Shirley. Only your Microsoft Word files should go to OneDrive, and only if you're signed into OneDrive. As far as Ease of Access goes, that should be closed, if you go to Control Panel> Ease of Access and untoggle the button that says Always scan this Section.

I didn’t choose to use Ease of Access or One Drive. I didn’t even know they were on my computer until a Windows update. Suddenly, my files were going to them for whatever reason. I didn’t even realize what was happening until I saw the names Ease of Acces and One Drive. I honestly didn’t have them before. I guess I can get rid of them, but not sure how.
I can’t positively remember, but I was under the impression there weren’t individual jAWS licenses for 64 or 32 bit versions --- you should be able to just download the 64 bit version from the Freedom Scientific site, no?
Also, just because things like ease of access and onedrive are there, doesn’t mean that you have to use them. There’s plenty of stuff in plenty of programmes that I use that I have little need for – I just don’t’ use them and they don’t cause me any inconvenience.

Thanks. I do have 64 bit. I don’t know why I purchased a 32 bit upgrade for JAWS, but that was last year, and it has worked fine.
I’m just amazed that suddenly Microsoft is adding things like “One Drive” and “Ease of access” that I know nothing about—nor do I really want them, but here they are. 😊
