thats windows d. grin
i think this depends on many factors. the type of video hardware is in the computer. what programs and drivers that are loaded. etc.
my computer has never gone directly to the desktop after i close a program in windows 7 , 8 or 10.
when i first boot the computer focus is on a invisable screen from eset smart security. etc.
it does this weather or not window eyes is loaded. it still will not go to the desktop without haveing to use windows d.

Sally:

 

I have noticed this also when trying to navigate through e-mail groups that I have created.

 

I can no longer navigate through the list of group members via my arrow keys.

 

I’ll keep the Alt K command in mind.

 

Can you tell me what the Alt K command actually does?

 

Am using windows 7, Jaws 18, and Outlook 2016 in Office 365.

Outlook seems to have changed the way that it reads the list of contacts as you begin typing in an email address. It used to read the addresses as I arrowed down. Now it does not read them unless I use the alt K command. Is there a setting that could have changed?

Re: Desktop Question

Hello there;
I'm running jaws18, windows10,
And when I'm in a program, for example, outlook,
When I press alt+f4, I get placed back on the desktop.
I make sure, that the taskbar is clear.
By default, windows has internet browser, media player, windows explorer, etc.,
So, I did unpin these items from taskbar.

when you use windows d everything is minimized. includeing that dialog box.

Hi Mike,

Give this a try:
Taking the Desktop out of the loop when using Alt + Tab.
You want to change your desktop theme to Windows Classic.
Try the following:
1. While on the desktop make sure nothing is selected.
Press control + spacebar until you hear not selected. You
can also press the F5 key.
2. Open your context menu, up arrow to personalize, & press
enter.
3. Press down arrow until you get to an item called Windows7
Basic. Right arrow to Windows Classic. Hit the enter key to
make the desired change.
4. Wait a few seconds or until you hear an audio sound
effect confirming the completion of this process. I would
wait another 2 minutes or so as your computer is making lots
of changes and you want to allow lots of time for the
process to complete.

Note: Also, changing desktop themes can possibly change
your Sound Schemes as well. So, you might have to alter
your sound schemes to get the sounds you want.

Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Actually, these keys do the same as alt plus f4. They close

hit windows plus D to get to the desktop. No big deal,

Jaws back to the desktop. It just takes a couple extra

Hi, Mike. Along with what other users have said about
closing a program with ALT plus F, you can also try closing
programs with the following keystrokes:
ALT plus SPACE, then arrow up to close or exit. See if maybe
this causes a more focused return to desktop.

Thanks Bill.
Actually, these keys do the same as alt plus f4. They close the program to where Jaws stops speaking. I still have to hit windows plus D to get to the desktop. No big deal, except that sometimes I have to hit the keys twice to get Jaws back to the desktop. It just takes a couple extra movements and I'm lazy.

What I actually meant in my last message, Mike is that some users use ALT
plus F, then X.

Subject: Desktop Question

I was a Window Eyes user. With W.E., when leaving a program I was returned
to the desktop. With Jaws, I have to hit windows-D to get there and
sometimes have to hit it twice. to return to desktop. Is there something I
can change to get directly to desktop, upone closing a program?
