Wow, that did it.  Thank you!

 

As long as I do insert z prior to arrowing to the message I want to delete, I can then press e to edit it, or the delete key to delete it.

 

I had also been trying to find how to page up through messages that had scrolled off the screen, and now see that the page up

key works if I do insert z first.

 

Thanks again.

Greetings:

 

Did you try turning off the JAWS virtual cursor (insert z)?

Yes, I did try those, but so far, no luck.  Thanks.

Can you try shiftf10 or the application key? Maybe it will work, with Slack you never really know.

Subject: [External] : Deleting a Message in a Slack Chat

 

Can anyone using Slack tell me how to delete a message that I have previously placed in a Slack chat using JAWS and the keyboard?  The Slack keyboard shortcuts say that if you are focused on a message you can hit delete, or E for edit, but those do nothing when I have tried.

 

I know there is an icon to the right of each message with three dots next to it where you can bring up a delete choice on a menu, but I can’t seem to get to it without trying to find it with the mouse.

 

Thanks for any help.
