You are not making any sense.  You cannot print an envelope without some kind of program.  You cannot simply place an envelope in the printer and print an address on it without launching a program like MS Word to print it.  So which program are you using?

Now save the address to your clipboard.

Then press alt m (for mail) and e (for envelope) and the press enter on the first option, which I think is envelopes and copy the address into the edit field.

Good morning! I am in the Business Enterprise program, and I accepted an offer to operate a cafe yesterday. When I was in training my trainer used a dymo labeler printer to make labels for products such as sandwiches and bagels. I want to purchase a dymo labeler printer for my cafe. Which dymo labeler printer would work best with JAWS, and where can I purchase it? Any help will be appreciated.

If you alt + enter on the desktop icon, there is a selection box where you can arrow to change it from normal window to maximized.
This is the state of the window when the icon/shortcut is activated.

Hello Listers:

Created a keyboard shortcut for Google Chrome. Have just enough light perception in one eye to notice that Chrome isn't opening at its maximum size, but rather in a rectangular shape at far right/bottom of pc screen.

What are the keyboard steps that I need to perform to ensure that when I open Chrome, it's "maximized" on my monitor?

Thank you,

Thank you for the info.  Narrator came on but it didn’t help.  When I pressed tab, narrator would say tab and when I pressed up or down arrow it would say up arrow or down arrow.  Jaws won’t speak on that computer and I thought narrator might help me figure out why.  That computer has Windows 7 and Jaws 16.  I guess I’ll have to wait until I have sighted help available to tell me what’s on the screen and get Jaws speaking.

Hi Robin,

 

It sounds like the ribbons are minimized.  Try the following:

To navigate ribbons more efficiently the ribbons need to be maximized.  The keystroke is, control + F1.  This keystroke is a toggle so, this keystroke
will maximize & minimize the ribbons.
 
To check if the ribbons are minimized / maximized do the following:
1. Press the, Alt key, to open the ribbons.
2. Open the context menu with either the application key or, shift + F10.
3. Arrow up or down to the, Minimize, option.  If, Minimize, is checked, the ribbons are minimized, pressing, enter, on this checkbox, will uncheck it
&close the context menu, & your menues will now be maximized.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Not sure if it's related, but I recently noticed that I'm having a weird bug with the Outlook ribbon on my home computer.  I wasn't sure if it started after a recent upgrade to Office 2016 or to JAWS.  In my case, pressing alt to go to the ribbon tabs where I should be able to left and right arrow across the various tab options no longer works right. When I press Alt, it immediately jumps to the lower ribbon.  I cannot seem to get focus to the upper ribbon. To get to the view ribbon, I have to press alt V.  I'm not seeing that here on my work computer, but I'm also likely on a slightly different version of Outlook and still on JAWS 2019 here.  I'll have to turn off JAWS and see if the issue persist with Narrator.

Yes, Windows key-U has always worked in Windows 7 to launch Narrator, but this is not a toggle. You have to tab to the exit button to turn it off.  In Windows 10, you can ttoggle Narrator on and off at will by pressing Control-Windows key-Enter.

Control+Windows-key+Enter.

That is the toggle for Narrator, whether you start it from the edit box or if you start and stop it with that keystroke.

Hello Laura:

 

To start Narrator in the current session of Windows 7 but, not have it start each time Windows 7 starts, Tap either WINDOWS KEY, type "narrator" (without the quotes), then press ENTER.

Bill,

 

Thank you for the info.  Narrator came on but it didn’t help.  When I pressed tab, narrator would say tab and when I pressed up or down arrow it would say up arrow or down arrow.  Jaws won’t speak on that computer and I thought narrator might help me figure out why.  That computer has Windows 7 and Jaws 16.  I guess I’ll have to wait until I have sighted help available to tell me what’s on the screen and get Jaws speaking.

 

Laura

Hi, Laura. There isn’t one shortcut in Windows 7 to turn on Narrator. Try the following:

 

1. Press Windows key plus U

2. Press ALT plus N.

3. Press ENTER.

I don't care what the MS site says.  Windows key-Enter does not toggle Narrator on and off in Windows 7, at least not on my HP desktop.  I don't think there is any way to toggle it on and off in Windows 7 like there is with the  Windows 10 shortcut key  Control-Windows key-Enter.

Sorry, you are right.

Here is what the Microsoft site says:

On a keyboard, press the Windows logo key + Enter.

This will both start and stop narrator.

 

The control key was added in Windows 10.
