Hi Bill,

 

Thanks for mentioning this utility. I downloaded it with no problem. It’s easy to install. And that’s saying a lot for me. (LOL)

 

Thanks again.

Hi, Shirley. I understand your frustration with regard to some Windows applications saving files in strange places, and not being able to locate them. This is because, when one tabs to the save file option, the location of the file is not given. Here's what I did to stop all that nonsense. I installed a Windows file utility called Search Everything. This utility will, when started, search for files with a given name or partial name, and will also list its location. I will give the link for the website where you can download Search Everything. Since I have a 64-bit system, I download the 64-bit version of the program.

I wrote something in WORD PAD, and when I went to open it again it was not there. I wrote the information in a new WORD PAD file and when I tried to save it, I received the message that I already had that file. So, how do I find it? It’s not in “file explorer.” This has all happened since the latest update of Microsoft.

Thanks for any help.

 

Cheerfully,

Shirley Tracy

It is not that I do not want the keys above the F1 and F2 keys, it was that I did not want the 104 keys to include those keys at the top of the keyboard.

Just curious as to why you excluded options with the additional keys?

Not questioning your preference or right to do so, but curious about your reasoning.  I've often found those keys to be very handy to have for their specific functions, and even if you don't use 'em they just "sit there" otherwise.  They're also quite difficult to accidentally press.

I haven't made a single update to my system--not even a Windows update--in over two weeks. The last Zoom update was maybe a month ago.
It's all very odd indeed.

moderated 104 US layout wireless keyboard

Dave Durber
 

Hello everyone:
 
My trusty Logitech wireless keyboard stopped working about 2 months ago, therefore, I am on the look out for a replacement.
 
I searched on the internet for a 104 US layout wireless keyboard, excluding any keys which may be located above the F1 to F12 keys. While the searches resulted in several, I cannot make up my mind which one to choose.
 
Are there any members on the list who are using a 104 US layout wireless keyboard. If there are, I would be interested, in knowing the make and model and if the keys have a good tactile feel and whether the keys have a mechanical or electronic action.
 
I look forward to any and all information.
 
Dave

I've not noticed anything different, it still alerts me, if I let it, to who leaves, or joins. I have JAWS running through a separate audio channel.

Try Insert+Space, Z to switch to the default JAWS configuration, then perform a test. If the problem goes away, it's something in your JAWS configuration.

Heya folks,

 

Is anyone else having the weird thing within Chrome and Favourites when clicking on Bookmarks and right cursor and it just open a folder amongst a list of my favourites as before the latest Jaws update it would let me decide and scroll down to what I am after, is there a setting I need to change?

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

                Hi marty this is paul faucheux. I would suggest using an amazon device instead of trying to use windows 10 and the desktop app. From the sound of things I would suggest you write or call amazon at 1-800-273-6239 and tell them that they need to design there app on windows using accessibility standards.

Hi,

 

The search is a button, not an edit box.

 

So if you press B from the home page, you will hear Search Button. Press space on that and it will expand to an edit box.

 

All the best
