Bill or anyone:

I hate to ask this, but could you send me any instructions for checking fast start-up?

Up until now, I've avoided this because it seemed like having fast startup enabled created more issues than it solved.

But, perhaps I'm wrong, and need to re-think this.

I can get away without the Windows start-up sound, but it is nice to have so you get a quick indication of the status of your computer when re-booting.

Thanks!

Subject: Still Have Problems Activating Windows Startup Sound

Dave and all:

I followed the instructions below for activating the windows start-up sound, and play windows startup sound is checked.

However, when I shut down and then re-boot my computer, the start-up sound does not play.

I am referring here to the older computer that I recently updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7.

I believe that the windows start-up sound played immediately after I did the update, but no longer plays after I downloaded and installed new Dell drivers for my system.

Is there anything else I should check?

How to turn on the "play Windows startup sound" function in Windows 10

1. When you are at the desktop, tap the WINDOWS Key, and type "change system sounds" (without the quotes, in the search edit field. Generally, as soon as you type the two letters ch, Windows usually delimits to this result. If it does, press ENTER, to open the utility.

2. When the utility opens, JAWS will speak some Windows information about system sound themes. If you do not wish to listen to the information, Tap the CTRL key, to stop JAWS speaking the infomation.

3, Tap the TAB key, until JAWS says, "play Windows startup sound". JAWS will tell you it is unchecked. This is the default setting.

4. Tap the SPACE BAR, to check the check box.

5. Tap the TAB key until you get to the Apply button, press the SPACE BAR, to apply the change

6. Tap the TAB key, until you get to the OK button, Press the SPACE BAR or, the ENTER key, to activate the OK button, to close the utility and return the system to the Desktop.

7. When you turn on the computer, restart Windows or, you wake the computer using either the Sleep mode or, Hibernation Mode, the play Windows startup sound will be played.

8. After you hear the Windows Startup sound, if you are someone who needs to enter a Windows password or, a Microsoft account password to log in to Windows, and you have not installed another screen reader or, you have, but it has not been set to start at the Log on screen, this is where you need to press CTRL+WINDOWS KEY+ENTER, to start Narrator. When Narrator starts speaking, Narrator should tell you , that you are at the point where you need to enter the Windows password or, the Microsoft account password to log into Windows.

9. If you are someone who has disabled the default log on screen, when you hear the play Windows startup sound, Windows is at the Desktop. If you have not installed another screen reader or, you have, but it has not been set to start after Windows Log on, this is where you need to press CTRL+WINDOWS
KEY+ENTER, to start Narrator and get access to Windows.

moderated Re: How can I put GMail on my desktop?

 

Sieghard,

My guess is that this setting means to use a new window when opening rather than a new tab in any existing Chrome window.  I have not played with that, though, but it would be consistent with that same parlance used in Chrome and other browsers with regard to new window versus new tab when links are activated.

I don't think  in Edge or Google Chrome they call it a shortcut any more, but you can install a website as an App:

in Edge you would log into Gmail and then press Alt + F for the File menu and go to "Apps" (pressing A should take you there), expand that menu and arrow down to "Install this site as an app".

In Chrome press just the Alt key, then arrow down to "More Tools" and you find the option to "Create Shortcut". You can then name the shortcut and there is a checkbox which says "Open as a Window", I don't know what this means, maybe Brian does and can explain it.

Shirley,

Just curious what browser you're using?  Glenn's recommendation will definitely work, and it's browser agnostic, but some browsers make it very easy to send a shortcut to the desktop, while others don't.

As an aside, it's no surprise that Windows Live Mail is going wonky for you.  I recommended it as a basic email client even after it was out of support, which is a very rare exception for me, but stopped about a year ago because it is becoming problematic, particularly with GMail and other email services that use more secure authorization than Windows Live Mail was ever designed to support.

You can just upgrade, if you had the Beta before and upgrade you then have the full version and the Beta is gone, there is no need to first uninstall the Beta.

There are a few ways to hear the Jaws version:

 

1. Press Jaws Key + J followed by Control + Jaws Key + V, this bring  up the Jaws information in the virtual viewer

2. Jaws Key + J followed by "A" for "About", this bring up the information as well, but it's not a virtual window so you have to switch to the Jaws cursor to review it in detail

3. Jaws Key + J followed by Up Arrow twice, this takes you to "About" so essentially the same as above

4. If you don't run Jaws from the system tray you can also press Alt + Tab until you get to the Jaws window and then press Control + Jaws Key + V

 

My preferred method is #1 because it's just two keystrokes and I can immediately use the virtual cursor to navigate the information and, if I want to, copy the Jaws version info.

I uninstalled the beta before I installed the full version of Jaws 2022.

 

The jaws command insert+control+v will tell you the version of the software you are running.  Doing it twice put it in a virtual window that you can select and copy from if you ever need that.

That is a great command if you ever need to know the exact version of Word, or Outlook or whatever that you are using with Jaws.

But in the Jaws window after pressing insert+j you can either press insert+control+v or just arrow up to About and hit enter.

 

Once you are on the one that doesn’t say beta, you can check it to start at logon and after logon.

First, how can I determine which version is loaded. There is no designation of which one is working. It was there at first, but now it has disappeared.

Second, When I attempted to get rid of the beta There was no way to shut it down. I also noticed that the options are the same for both versions.

When I unchecked the run jaws at start up in 2021, it was unchecked in 2022.

 

 

How can I fix the bata, or if notpossible, get rid of it.

Some people like the scenic route and others like the highway.

 

Also, the insert+capslock+b only works if CapsLock is set as a jaws modifier key.

I use the straight on highway of insert+shift+b.

 

I only like the scenic route when I’m traveling and have time.

Good afternoon everyone, 

 

I must be having a brain freeze, because I’m having trouble remembering the keystrokes for being able too check the battery status level on my laptop computer with jaws 2021.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Al

Sieghard,

Some people like the scenic route and others like the highway.

 

Also, the insert+capslock+b only works if CapsLock is set as a jaws modifier key.

I use the straight on highway of insert+shift+b.

 

I only like the scenic route when I’m traveling and have time.

 

😊

What do you do to get the time? Do you press Jaws Key + F12 or do you press Jaws Key + F11 to bring up the system try and then arrow down to where the time is displayed? Same difference, the system try has the information, but the keyboard shortcuts is there for quick access to said information.

I just go into the notification bar.  Or where the time, network status etc. shows up.  Generally there it tells you the battery strength.

Jaws Key + Caps Lock + B requires quite the finger acrobatics and for me is actually an impossible key combination to press.

Insert plus capslock plus B works here as well.

 

Never knew that before.

 

Now, I have two options for checking battery status.

Yes, I’m running the latest version of Windows 10, but I’ll be upgrading to Windows 11 at some point, likely soon. I just tried the link, but I still got the same message, any idea what’s wrong/what I might be doing wrong? I use Firefox as my browser

I am assuming you are running windows 10?  If yes, I would start by deleting all TWBlue setup files from your download folders.  Then, you should click the link that Inamuddin Khan sent.  This should download TWBlue_setup.exe

 

Clicking on the newly downloaded TWBlue_setup.exe should work.

Thank you Inamuddin Khan, Deleting the TWBlue folder in the %appdata% was my missing step.  The updated TWBlue is now working for me.

 

Madison, I believe the first file you mentioned is the correct one.  I had one file, TWBlue_setup.exe and everything worked for me.  I did have to authorize Twitter to work with TWBlue again, as expected.

Be sure to download the snapshot version of twblue from their
downloads page and try again. Be sure to download the latest one.

I am not sure what your original error was, but at least you need to
do this.

Dear friends the matter of fact is that TWBlue was updated to 2021.10.30 Please download it:

https://twblue.es/pubs/twblue_setup.exe

Before installing this version don’t forget to uninstall the last one and delete the folder of TWBlue from %Appdada%

By the way, also remember that you can set up any of the modern browsers to open with a defined page, or set of pages, or have it always open to the set of pages you had open when you last closed it.

I use Gmail and, because of how and when I opened it, it always remains the first tab in my browser and the browser is using the option to open to the last set of pages I had been browsing.

Shirley,

Just curious what browser you're using?  Glenn's recommendation will definitely work, and it's browser agnostic, but some browsers make it very easy to send a shortcut to the desktop, while others don't.

As an aside, it's no surprise that Windows Live Mail is going wonky for you.  I recommended it as a basic email client even after it was out of support, which is a very rare exception for me, but stopped about a year ago because it is becoming problematic, particularly with GMail and other email services that use more secure authorization than Windows Live Mail was ever designed to support.
