moderated Re: Having Trouble Accessing Bookmarks In Google Chrome

I just opened Chrome and find that I can not get to the bookmarks with any of the keystrokes previously mentioned. It has been so reliable and simple to get to the list with Alt+f+b but now no luck. I did see right away that the "show Bookmarks bar" was not checked so I checked it but still no luck. I closed Chrome and re-opened with the same problem and the show bookmarks bar was once again unchecked. I am running Win 11, jaws 2022.

Hi, Tom. Have you restarted your computer since you began having trouble with ALT plus F taking you to the help file in Chrome?

Hello.

I assume you mean control shift O for accessing the bookmark list, rather than control shift OTC.

When I press control shift O, I do get a bookmark list, but is more complex than the one I used to get with alt F followed by the letter B.

The new list has more actions with each bookmark, and is rather difficult to navigate consistently with Jaws.

If anyone has any clarifications on this, or any other work-arounds, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Hello, everyone.



Up until today, I could easily access my bookmark list in Google
Chrome when in the main search window by pressing alt F and then B for
bookmarks. Once there, it was very easy to arrow down or use
first-letter navigation to get to the bookmark I was looking for.



Now, wheneber I hit alt F, I land in a help menu, and have to
physically navigate to my bookmark list by using my arrow keys.



I'm not sure what has changed or why.



I'm also not sure how to get things to function the way they
previously did.



Any help would be appreciated.



Thank you!
