well i'm glad you have an alternate since you don't have 16. i have installed every 2018 update and the problem never goes away. i guess it's a win 7 thing.

Re: retrying downloads in Firefox

One thing though.  I'm now using Firefox 60 and haven't had to use the retry because I haven't had problems with downloads.  Just figured I'd put that in there.

Tab nor using the left and right arrows neither one work for me. I am using the latest version of JAWS 64-bit, and Firefox 52.9.0 (64-bit) (perhaps I need to upgrade). Oh, and using Windows 10.

Interesting how some things work for one but not for another.

All,

Sometimes when downloading files in Firefox, I receive a "Failed" notification in my downloads list. JAWS reads the name of the file, the word "Failed", the time of the download, and the word Retry. I have tried several ways to get to this retry button (applications key, Shift-F10, tab, even Control+R), but cannot figure out how to access this button/link/option. The JAWS cursor nor OCR even seem to read the downloads list, seemingly because the font is too small.

I know I can go back to a place and simply restart the download manually, but it would be convenient to know how to get to this option from within the downloads list.

Anyone ever succeeded with this in JAWS?

Hope I am not missing something obvious!

Thank you as always!

Mike

Windows 7 and Windows Explorer

Hi Everyone

I am using Windows 7 professional and the latest version of JAWS 2018.

Sometimes when using Windows Explorer everything runs very slowly. It

what is going on here and, if so, is there anything I can do about it?

You list may be grouped.

Try this:
1. Open the view ribbon (ALT-V)
2. Activate the “Group By” command (G)

Within the drop-down list, activate (None).

Hopefully, that restores the normal view.

Hi, David. I know of no way to have Internet Explorer Favorites in Edge. What I did, though, was to go into my user folder, and find the Favorites folder inside. Once you find this folder, you can make a shortcut to it on the desktop. Then, if you’re using Edge as your default browser, just open the favorites folder from the desktop, click one of the existing favorites, and it will open in whatever is your default browser.

Windows Explorer messed-up view

Hi Gang: I have some weird occurrence on my new daw in the Windows explorer view. No matter what I try to do under [view], I can’t get rid of these ridiculous expanded headings, such as [I n-p (9) row header] or [q n-z (7) row header]

 

Under each of these, there are first some folders, then some files. Yes, there are single .wav files under each after the folders.

 

Can someone please tell me (like I’m a two-year-old) what to do here?
