Why would you want to create a hotkey for a hotkey?

That JAWS plus Windows key plus F4 is a real hand key. Is there a way to creat a hot key for that or will provoking it just restart JAWS? I did try it and it works.
If Jaws locks up for some reason the first keystroke you should try is the Jaws restart command which first unloads Jaws and then reloads it. The fact Jaws is gone does not necessarily mean it has completely unloaded so this is always my first option.
The keyboard shortcut is Jaws Key + Windows Key + F4, if you try this in a normal place like when Jaws is running and you are on the desktop or whatever you will find that after about 8 or 10 seconds Jaws restarts. If Jaws has locked up I usually give it at least 20 or 25 seconds to see if it sorts itself out, if not then you can manually reload Jaws.
Hi Clarence, I use the windows are run command and type in JAWS2021
