Hi,

I hit the windows key, tab twice to start button, arrow down 4 times to "power" and hit enter, then arrow down twice to "shut down", or three times to "restart".

Hi,

Windows key followed by pressing up arrow twice isn’t reliable because:

  • Customized Start menu layout for different people (you can have a full screen experience, you can rearrange tiles, and you can hide certain parts (the last one is destined for spring 2017)).
  • The overall layout of Start menu is different between Windows 10 releases (the one that is seen in builds 10240 and 10586 is different than that of 14393).

 

You may recall some forums talking about inability for users to find power button in Start menu when build 14393 (Anniversary Update) was first released (August 2016). This is because the overall layout of the Start menu has changed from prior Windows 10 releases (and this is why using the Start menu method is unreliable). I can tell you that certain parts of Start menu (and majority of Windows+X menu shortcuts) has changed in Creators Update (the next major Windows 10 release scheduled to go live in a few months).

I’d say Windows+X method is more reliable and is fast, as this can be invoked from anywhere, with desktop/Alt+F4 method being a good backup procedure.

Cheers,

Joseph

The Windows key followed by up arrow twice does not work for me, I think it depends on how you have customized your start menu screen.

Definitely Alt+F4 from the desktop works, but Windows Key+X followed by U and then by “U” or “R” depending on whether you want to shutdown or restart works consistently for me as well. Not sure, Joseph, why it isn’t reliable for you.

From anywhere, just press Windows Key.  I follow with up arrow twice.

That puts you on the Power Button.  Pressing it gives you the choice of restarting, shutting down, or putting the laptop into “sleep” mode.

Mike,

         Regardless of the Windows tool in question, if it's related to disk scanning and repair there is virtually always a command line interface for it.  Do a web search using your preferred search engine on the version of windows you're using and the tool you're using with the words command line added in the search criteria and you typically get pages and pages of examples.  You can definitely redirect output to a log file, too.

If you want to use Alt+F4 you actually can be on the desktop, the start button, the cortana “Ask me anything” button or the taskbar, it works from any of these areas. I find it easiest to use Windows Key+M or Windows Key+D to first get to the desktop, then Alt+F4.

Problem With Stubborn Messages Staying In Drafts Folder Solved

Tom Behler
 

Hello.

 

It looks like I have solved my problem with stubborn messages remaining in my Outlook 2016 drafts folder.

 

I went back onto the g-mail web site, and accessed my account there.

 

The HTML view does work much better than the standard view with Jaws.

 

Anyway, I found the drafts folder again, and accessed the discard drafts option.  With some sighted assistance, I discovered that you have to individually check each drafts message you wish to delete.  I had not done that yesterday, because I didn’t realize it was needed.

 

Once I checked each individual message, I was able to end the operation, and the messages were gone.  They did not re-appear in my Outlook drafts folder.

 

I hope this helps others who experience the same issue.

 

Thanks to the list members who helped me sort this out.

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

Mike,

         Regardless of the Windows tool in question, if it's related to disk scanning and repair there is virtually always a command line interface for it.  Do a web search using your preferred search engine on the version of windows you're using and the tool you're using with the words command line added in the search criteria and you typically get pages and pages of examples.  You can definitely redirect output to a log file, too.

Go to the desktop. Press ALT F4, it will ask you if you want to shut down the computer. Press ENTER. That's it.

I was pretty sure, but looked, and it said Off Checked. That is for pane, of course.

Bye for now,

Hi Carolyn,

That sounds like you have the Reading Pane on. If you don't use it, you can turn it off from the View tab of the ribbon while in the Inbox.

For me, F6 opens a message, and Shift-F6 gets me out of it. I am glad that I don't have to depend on that. I like Enter and Escape better.

Bye for now,

Makes sense, Steve.

Not a terribly big deal here; just an item of curiosity more than anything else.

My guess is that Microsoft are standardising keyboard use within Microsoft Office. You have always had to use F6 and Shift + F6 to move between the Navigation pane and the document area in Word and PowerPoint, and when viewing the calendar or tasks in Outlook, where the navigation pane holds the list of folders. Removing the ability to use Tab and Shift + Tab for mail folders brings them into line with these other areas.

If I'm right in this guess, then I wouldn't expect Microsoft to view this as something that needs fixing. Time will tell.

Why this all changed this past summer is beyond me.

I have talked with both FS and the Microsoft Acessibility hot line
support people about this, and noone seems to have a clue or any ideas
as to how to fix it.

The people who write the software could fix it if they chose. I don't know whether it was a deliberate design change or not, however.

Anyone who really knew what they were doing, unfortunately, wouldn't be in a first-level technical support job - they would be in a programming job, or, at a minimum, in second or third-level technical support roles.

One of the advantages of open-source software is that you really can write to a mailing list and, quite often, receive help from one of the authors of the software, who in some cases can track down the problem and fix it very quickly.

The commercial software world often doesn't work that way. I remember when I was considering buying JAWS for DOS in circa 1992. I had some questions, so I made a phone call to the United States from my home in Australia - and there was Ted Henter on the other end of the line to tell me how good his software was and that it did indeed support the new DECTALK speech card that I had just bought.

Henter-Joyce Inc., as we know, later merged into what became Freedom Scientific, and they've long since outgrown the days in which you could just call and (without even intending it) speak to the people at the top.
