Hi Loreal,
Since you are not an admin, I am not sure that what I will tell you will
actually work.
I do know that there is a Windows 10 bug that gives you the prompt you
I am an admin on my account and I can just press enter and the hot key is
added after receiving this prompt.
That is the bug.
I am not sure what will happen if you are not an admin and you do try and
press enter.
If this does not work, you may have to contact your IR person.
Before I retired, I did have privileges based on my job, that allowed me to
do this.
Others using JAWS who did not have these privileges were not able to add hot
keys without intervention.
Good Luck Loreal.

I have a question regarding this as well. I know the procedure to set the
hotkey for JAWS, however, it says I need administrator privileges in order
to do this, but my account on my computer is an administrator account. Go
figure. Any suggestions?

Find the JAWS shortcut in the Windows Desktop and open its properties. You
can set the shortcut key there.

Hi all,
Can someone please refresh my memory of how to set the hotkey to turn Jaws
on? I know what it is, but when I press it nothing happens so I know I need
to re-set it.
I'm getting some help and the tech guy decided that we needed to do a Jaws
repair and in doing so I lost my hotkey to start Jaws. Using latest versions
of Jaws and Windows 10. Thanks Madison
