Removing JAWS 16 from a windows 10 computer

Ann Byrne
 

When I go to apps, to JAWS 16, I find "settings, third party something, and utilities. In none of these do I find a way to remove JAWS 16. How do I make it go away???

Thanks

Hi,

I agree completely! The MLB scores were great, but no more.

The problem is that the sites where ResearchIt gets the info change
their XML tags and someone has to physically get that info and amend the
query file for that ResearchIt item—an all day task, if you want to stay
current!

The weather item you described is a great example. In certain
situations, the tag searched for is either temporarily assigned to
another item, such as with a weather advisory, or the level the original
tag was located has changed, so the query is on the wrong level for the
search

The tags are in the same structure as your hard drive’s directory structure.

Example:

Drive C:, User, Dennis Brown, Desktop holds my Desktop icons. Searching
that path and displaying those puppies would be simple.

But what if Microsoft added another level, such as

Drive C:, User,Administrator, Dennis Brown, Desktop , then my search
query would no longer work, since it wouldn’t find Dennis Brown under
User any longer.

So, the Weather issue would be

Weather Channel, Forecast, Daily, [whatever city or zip code data is
searched for]

and during an advisory, it inserts

Weather Channel, Advisory, Alert

It would go for the first tag after “forecast” and get “Advisory”
instead of “Daily.”



I’m reading the ResearchIt developer’s manual, and hope to have the
Baseball item done before Spring Training.

Hope this helps!

Hi jaws users. a couple research it questions. first is all the sports
scores options are still not available in research it. NHL, NBA, MLB
college football and NFL scores aren’t available. is there any timeline
of these things coming back and any aditional search options maybe being
added in the future? think research it is great and a really easy way
to find things quickly and with the links in many results you can then
have the option of expanding on what you are researching. second
question is when I use research it to get the weather, any time national
weather service issues any alert air quality, winter storm watch or
warning or thunderstorm watch or warning, I have to click to get the
full forecast. the forecast isn’t in the result just current
conditions. a good example was yesterday. at about 7:00 eastern I
checked weather and a winter weather advisory one to three inches of
snow was forecasted. we had a holiday party with our NFB state
affiliate and it was held, but there was no way to cancel it and since
we had paid for it, I didn’t cancel, but when I checked weather again at
4:00 P.M. what had been an advisory suddenly was a warning the advisory
would have expired by 4:00 but the warning was up until 6:00. to see
the change in forecast I would have to click to get it. it seems to
defeat research it’s purpose and I sure as heck don’t want to have
another situation where I had a furious argument when I got home from
that party we are fortunate that access link didn’t shut down during
it. they had shut down in region three the southern jersey shore.

Try shutting down with the force option.

Hello Mario,

You should do a test.

First make sure that you have the shutdown.exe program in the folder:
c:\windows\system32

In Windows 7, it should be visible in the local C: tree structure.
If not, go to the command prompt and type:
dir c:\windows\shutdown.exe /s

The "/s" option is necessary to search through the sub directories of
c:\windows\
It may take a few minutes for the search to complete.

If you have a shutdown.exe program, make note of the exact path.

Then do the test by typing manually this restart command.

Open the run box with the Windows key plus r
type: shutdown.exe -r -t 00

You might have to precede the shutdown.exe with the entire path.
c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

If the test works, then the desktop shortcut must be looked as to why it
isn't executing the command.

Go to the desktop with the Windows key plus d.

Good Morning David,

I guess that both the dash and the slash is correct.

I just tried both from the run box and both work.

A few days ago I finally searched for the shutdown.exe syntax and I got
this web site.

http://ss64.com/nt/shutdown.html

It uses the slash for the command line options.

I created the two short cuts for my desktop. Both the shutdown and
restart have the slash and they both work.

Hello David,

Thanks for the steps to create the new shortcut.
I finally found time to Google the actual syntax for the shutdown
command.

The target line syntax, you gave is not correct.
Shutdown -s -t 0

The "-" dash should be "/" slash.
The /s is for shutdown. Reboot is /r.

The "01" (at the end of the line is the time until shutdown.

For reboot it should be:
shutdown.exe /r /t 00

This works in both Windows 7 and 10.

Hello Mario,

You should do a test.

First make sure that you have the shutdown.exe program in the folder:
c:\windows\system32

In Windows 7, it should be visible in the local C: tree structure.
If not, go to the command prompt and type:
dir c:\windows\shutdown.exe /s

The "/s" option is necessary to search through the sub directories of
c:\windows\
It may take a few minutes for the search to complete.

If you have a shutdown.exe program, make note of the exact path.

Then do the test by typing manually this restart command.

Open the run box with the Windows key plus r
type: shutdown.exe -r -t 00

You might have to precede the shutdown.exe with the entire path.
c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

If the test works, then the desktop shortcut must be looked as to why it
isn't executing the command.

Go to the desktop with the Windows key plus d.
Highlight the shortcut and press ENTER.

To examine the desktop shortcut, highlight it and press alt plus ENTER.

Re: short cuts

David Moore
 

Hi,

Here is what you do.

Press windows+R to open the run dialog. Type this phrase:

shell:appsfolder

Then, a list of all win10 apps and all other apps will be there. Just arrow to the app you want to put on the desktop. Press applications key, or shift+F10. Arrow to create shortcut, and press enter. You will hear a message saying that you cannot create a short cut here, do you want to put one on the desktop. Just press enter on yes, and the short cut will be placed on your desktop. This method works for any kind of app, even the win10 universal apps.

Take care,
