This is the method I use most often to open foldrs on my computer. It is 8very* fast, and will instantly put you in the location you want. Not just the “c:” drive, but any location, anywhere on the local PC – I think you can even open network locations this way but since I don’t have a network anymore I’ve forgotten the method of entering a network path.

If you really just want to go to c, you could hit Windows-key r, and type c colon backslash and hit enter.

I spelled out the punctuation to be sure it would read correctly.

Subject: this pc going straight to hard drive Hi Anne,

The other day I restored windows afterwards when I opened file explorer , it opened to quick view , rather than this PC, to get it to open to this PC rather than quick view: first open file explorer, then press alt and v (to open the view menu), press shift and tab once (which should take you to view options), press enter twice at this point and you should then be in the folder options window, the first option in here is where you set what file explorer opens too, it's either a dropdown or possibly tree view, simply use the arrow keys to select this pc (I think it's the second option down), then just go to ok or apply and next time you open file explorer it should open to this PC. Hope this helps. Any questions, just shout.

If you go to the control panel there is a app for file explorer options where you can set what you want. Also get to this by doing a search from the start menu for file explorer options

moderated using Winamp in Windows 10

Mario
 

my friend noticed that when she starts Winamp and then presses insert+q,
JAWS reports WinAmp settings are loaded, The application currently being
used is winamp.exe, but when a PLS or M3U file opens Winamp, the
settings are for Windows Explorer.

she asked me as to what she can do to fix it, but the JAWS scripts are
already in the scripts folder. that's where they should be, right? so,
what can I tell her to do now?

she's using the latest Windows 10 (still 1903) with JAWS 2019.

moderated viewing Chrome history

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

Chrome keeps browsing history for three months. When I hit ctrl+H in Chrome to view my history, I don’t see more than a day or two of entries easily. If I use insert+z to turn off the virtual viewer, I can scroll through the whole list. Similarly, if I do a search of history, and get a high number of results, I can’t scroll to them in the virtual viewer. 

 

Is this the way it is, using Windows 1903, JAWS 2019 and Chrome 77.0.3865.90, (and for some time back,) or is this some anomaly of my system? I have the same scenario with NVDA.

Hi,

  Yes, I ad to work through this as well.  Basically your JAWS key on your computer must match the information at Vespero.  That is what JAWS now checks at startup.  For example my JAWS did not reflect ,correctly, that I had purchased an SMA last year.  I did not even notice this but with the update just issued the problem was corrected with the new checking at start up.  It was confusing for me at first, and I am sure FS will need to clarify , this in days to come.
