Hi Dani,

It is in the table layout options in Word. The long way to access this is by pressing alt and then the right and left arro keys until Jaws says 'Layout'. There are a couple of layout menus and Jaws might not specify that it is the Table Layout option so check that the layout menu is the one to the right of the 'Table Design' menu.
When you find 'Table layout' press the tab key until you get to the options you want. Jaws will also give you the shortcuts to the options as you go but I'll give you some here:

The shortcut to the layout menu is pressing the alt key, then j, then l fairly quickly.

To add a row below the row you're on, press Alt then j then l then b then e
To add a row above the row you're on, press J then l then a
To add a column to the left of the column you're on, press Alt then j then l then l
To add a column to the right of the column you're on, press Alt then j then l then r
To delete a row you're on, press J then l then d then r
To delete the column you're on, press j then l then d then c.

Hope this helps.

Regards
Zel

Subject: Two Questions re Tables and MsWord

Hi, Guys.
Using Win10, JFW2021, and Word2016.

1) How do I insert a column in an existing table in Word? Google and Microsoft's website says I can do this through the Layout option, but I'm not seeing anything there that suggests I can do that.

2) How do I delete a row?

I see in JFW's help that a table can be selected, but I don't see anything about how to select either individual rows or individual columns (that may come up later, so asking ahead of time) to be able to work with them.

I'm considering purchasing An Immersion In to Word from ATI but only see an option for Word365. Does this also work backward to Word2016?

Thanks,
Dani

Technically, it is still in the pilot program and you go through your regional library for the blind to get signed up for one.

Yes.  If you open Windows 10 Settings, then type just ALT in the search box, then down arrow you'll hit the option for Choose what windows and tabs appear when pressing ALT + Tab.  Activate it.

Alternatively, you can just open Settings, System, Multi-Tasking Pane and be in the same spot.

In the Multi-Tasking pane there is a dropdown box under the option, Pressing Alt + Tab shows.  The options are:

  • Open Windows Only (which happens to be the one you want)
  • Open Windows and all tabs in Edge (which I believe is the default setting)
  • Open Windows and 5 most recent tabs in Edge
  • Open Windows and 3 most recent tabs in Edge


The only way you get the "old behavior" is by setting this to Open Windows Only, and many forget that they ever did this after time passes.  But if they've got any recent Windows 10 version and they're only getting Open Windows as part of the ALT + TAB behavior, they did make this tweak at one point in the past after the new default came on the scene.  I can't recall exactly which version of Windows 10 introduced it.

Hi,

This is because Windows is told to show Edge tabs when Alt+Tab is pressed. To “fix” this, provided that one is running Windows 10 20H2 (October 2020 Update) and later, open Settings (Windows+I)/System/Multitasking, locate “Alt+Tab” grouping, then from “Pressing Alt + Tab shows” combo box, choose “open windows only”.

A detailed discussion took place on WinAccess forum last year about this change:

winaccess@winaccess.groups.io | ALT+TAB classic view in the latest Windows 10

P.S. This behavior is also the case with upcoming Windows 11.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello:

 

Your experience does not match my experience with the new Edge browser. If I open a link by pressing CTRL+ENTER, a new tab is open, and I can use CTRL+TAB to move between the open tabs in Edge. If I venture into another program (such as my email program), Pressing ALT+TAB only shows me one window for Microsoft Edge. This is the behavior I know you are wanting but which, apparently, is not happening for you.

 

This assumes you are using the Chromium version of Edge. My version right now is 92.0.902.78.

 

Best wishes,

Hi,

 

When I used Internet Explorer I often opened several tabs.  When using alt-tab to cycle through applications IE would show up once.  Now that I am using Edge, when I use alt-tab to cycle through things I have to go through every tab that is opened in Edge instead of Edge showing up once.  Is there a setting I can change so that Edge shows up only once if all the windows are tabs I opened with control-enter on links?

 

Hope this makes sense.  Thanks for any help.
