I know it isn't generally done on these groups, for kinda obvious reasons, but a screenshot after this has occurred would help me.  I've never had Gmail search be unavailable if I'm in a place where a search is appropriate.  I can't picture what confluence of events would cause it to not be available when in a mailbox.

Hi, Tom. The reason this does not work with browser shortcuts is that they are not executable in and of themselves. They only become executable when acted upon by the default browser. In order to make these shortcuts work, you must give a path to the executable file that opens the browser. If your browser is Edge, for example, and you don't want the shortcut to open in the default browser, but want it to open in Chrome, for example, you might do it this way,

 

Make a shortcut to the browser you want to open the link following the shortcut, as in,

 

"C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" https://www.youtube.com/

 

If this is in the target of the shortcut, and you paste this into the Send To menu, it will open YouTube using Google Chrome, even if that browser is not your default browser.

Hi Bill,

 

I pasted a couple of browser desktop shortcuts into the send to menu to try out the process but no, it does not work which I suspected may be the case with browsers. However, in the past I have pasted numerous shortcut icons, like text editors etc,  into the send to menu and they work perfectly.

 

In case anyone is interested, to paste a shortcut icon into the send to menu, do the following.

 

Hit control c to copy the shortcut, go to C: users, user, app data, roaming, Microsoft, Windows and paste the shortcut into the send to folder.  All done.

Hi Curtis,

 

Interesting way for handling favorites.

 

However, pressing enter on the shortcut would always load that particular url into the same default browser.  Is there a way, apart from using the shift F10 "sent to" command, of chooseing which browser into which to load  the url at that time?      

 

i.e.  Sometimes a site may work better using Firefox rather than Edge while another may function better in another browser altogether.

 

Thanks

 

Tom

Greetings everyone:

 

I thought it might be helpful to the group if I passed along a solution for managing website favorites which works across all of the Windows browsers I have worked with over the years: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge.

 

First, I created a folder within My Documents called Favorites. There is nothing magical about the name of the folder. You can call it anything you like. This is where you would store any Favorite that you create.

 

Second, using Edge or any other browser, go to the web page for which you would like to create a favorite or shortcut. Press ALT+D or CTRL+L (it really doesn't matter) to move the focus to the address bar. Since the URL contained in the address bar is already highlighted (selected), press CTRL+C to copy the URL to the Windows Clipboard.

 

With File Explorer, open the Favorites folder you have created. Press CTRL+SPACE a couple of times to ensure that nothing is selected. JAWS should tell you when the line item is not selected.

 

Now, press Shift+F10 to open up a context menu and up arrow to New. Press right arrow to open the submenu and press down arrow to Shortcut. Press Enter.

 

Paste the URL you copied earlier into the edit field and tab once to type a name for the Shortcut. Then, press Enter.

 

That's all there is to it. Any time you want to manage or go to a favorite, use File Explorer first to locate the favorite and then press Enter to activate it.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

Hi,

I use Gmail standard view with jaws in edge and chrome. The problem I am facing is that it often says that the search mail/all conversations functionality is unavailable. I am referring to the first option under the 'search' heading. I am forced  to then switch to basic HTML view. Are there ways to consistently use the search function in Gmail standard view?

Warmly,
Rahul

In my last post, where I gave an example of a program target, followed by a shortcut URL, the server broke the line into two separate components. In actuality, when you follow the program target, which is surrounded by quotes, with the URL, it should all be on one line, not on two separate lines as the broken link shows in the previous email.

Hi, Tom. As Curtis says, you can copy the URL to the clipboard and use the Run command, or you can do what I do.

 

1. Arrow to the Internet shortcut, but do not press ENTER.

2. Press ALT plus ENTER for Properties.

3. Once Properties opens for the shortcut, the URL is the first thing you will see. Copy this to the clipboard.

4. Open the browser you want to use to get to the URL.

5. Press CONTROL plus L to open the Address Bar.

6. Paste the URL from the clipboard into the Address Bar, and press ENTER.

 

Now the URL will open in whichever browser you opened.

Mark, hopefully someone can explain it better, but the sound you are
referring to is to alert you that the caps lock is on.

for example, you start typing normally and press the shift key with a
letter intending to capitalize it, but the keyboard beeps indicating
that you actually are temporarily making the letter that you pressed
simultaneously with the shift key lowercase, indicating that the caps
lock is on. therefore what you have typed up until pressing the shift
key might have been unknowingly capitalized.

Hi, Mark. Most of these sounds are not JAWS-related, but, rather, Windows-related. If you want to know what a particular sound means, go to,

Control Panel>Sound>Sounds tab.

 

Each sound has an event associated with the sound. Once you look at the various events, you can tab to the name of the sound, and past that, there is a test button. When this test button is pressed, the sound associated with the event from which you just tabbed will be played.

Can anyone explain what the various sound indicators mean in JAWS?  For example, when I am typing and have the caps key on without knowing, and then I press shift and a letter, I notice JAWS beeps. I believe there's also some kind of chime sound to mean some kind of error or that it finds nothing. I haven't found any documentation that explains what these sound indicators mean so I'm kind of guessing.
