No it’s a laptop and I am running windows seven so cannot use the shade feature of jars anyone standing behind me and see exactly what’s on the screen but when my company moves the windows 10 I would use the shade feature in jars for security reasons there are times that one wants to ensure that no one can shoulder serve to see what’s on the screen for instants insecurity you may be working on investigation that no one else needs to see the results until you were done. Have a nice day shan

Hi,



It’s control + Alt + up arrow. I know because I have had to fix mine in the

Re: Topic of conversations

 

By the way, I'd suggest you start a separate topic with a title that reflects what you're actually asking about.   It makes the archive cleaner and also will get the attention of some who would simply ignore a topic with a title that does not suggest what's actually being asked about.

Since the opening line of the group description states, "This group aims to be a source for anything and everything related to JAWS for Windows," this discussion falls firmly withing that scope, as far as I'm concerned.

Hardware configurations that will (or will not) support JAWS well are important to know about as we all know that what any manufacturer designates as "minimum requirements" are sometimes "minimum to assure the software barely drags itself along."  You want to know that you'll be able to actually use it as you're used to using it elsewhere.

Hi John,
 
I had this happen and the computer didn't assign the external drive a drive letter so it wouldn't show in the drive list.  This is how I assigned it a drive letter running Windows 7 & Jaws 16.

Method 2: Assign a Drive Letter for the Drive In Disk Management, make sure the drive has a drive letter assigned. If not, follow steps below to assign a drive letter for the drive.
1. Press Windows key + R, to open the Run dialogue.
2. Type, diskmgmt.msc, in the run box and press enter.
3. Right-click on the drive and select Change Drive Letter and Paths. To do this, make sure the drive is online. If the drive is offline, make it online
by right-clicking on the disk number and click Online.
4. Click on Add button.
5. Click on OK button to select the first available drive letter.

Hello,
If you haven't already, I would plug in the DVD drive with nothing
inside and restart the computer. Then I would insert the DVD and see
if it will be recognized. Have you checked to see if there are any
drivers to install of making this drive compatible with Windows 10?
Also, I might consider searching google to confirm that this drive is
compatible with Windows 10 in the first place.

Hello list,

So, I upgraded Skype for desktop on a laptop to try to get used to it before MS kills Skype classic in September. I came across some short cut keys from: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype

What I’m not finding is the hotkey to answer an incoming call. I can’t believe that there isn’t one for such a  basic function, but it’s not listed in the table. Start a call, hang up, mute, that’s all fine, but nothing for answering a call. Am I missing something or is this really not included as a shortcut key?

Thanks,

Re: JAWS July Update, J2018.1807.8, Download Links + What's New

The problem isn’t necessarily the download and installation of the update. The problem sometimes occurs when you want to do a repair of JAWS using the latest JAWS installer. Sometimes it won’t work, because JAWS wasn’t installed with the installer from the website.
