I had trouble at first. I did alt f and then s. It seemed to put me into a
search box so I tabbed out of it and suddenly I was where I needed to be,
and I was able to down arrow to where Bill said to go.

I am running windows 10 on a laptop and the latest Jaws version.

I must say I'm having a similar difficulty getting to this area, and I've
followed Bill's instructions to the letter. Edge's settings seem to work

Hi Madison,
When you do the Alt F and settings, be sure to tab to get into what you want
and then you can down arrow to it. I ran into the same issue as you did and
then I realized Bill said tab. I did that and it was there.

Hi, Madison. All this annoying stuff is in Settings>Privacy, search and

1. Open Edge.
2. Press ALT plus F, followed by the letter S for Settings.
3. TAB once to the settings categories, and arrow down to Privacy, Search

4. There will be several Check boxes, and you don't want them to say
checked, if you don't want to hear about them when you are in Edge.

moderated Re: very annoying issue whenever I open Edge

 

In Edge, and every other browser I'm aware of, if you so choose you can set any home page you wish.  For myself, when I have any browser open I always have it open all of the tabs I previously had open when I closed it.  But in Edge, if you want to specify a start page, e.g., google.com or duckduckgo.com, then open Edge Settings and navigate to the Start, home, and new tabs pane.  In that pane, in the first section with the title, When Edge starts, activate the radio button for Open these pages then activate the Add a new page button as many times as you wish so that the set of pages specified are what open when you open Edge.

Step-by-step instructions:

Chromium-based Edge: Setting Home Page, Default Opening Page(s), and Search Engine

All that follows presumes you have the Chromium-based Edge open, and have done the following to open Settings:

 

1. Hit ALT,Down Arrow or ALT+F to throw focus to the Edge Menu button and expand the menu itself.

 

2. Follow that with S for settings.  This will open a tab showing the following address:  edge://settings/profiles   

This is the Edge Settings page.  One could also just open a tab and paste in the address above, but it's better to know how to get there via the menu button.

Setting a Home Page (a real home page, that is accessed via the Home button):
Once you open Edge settings, tab once (which should land you on the Profiles pane selection in the settings list - it's first), down arrow 3 times and you will land on the Start, home, & new tabs pane entry.  Hit Enter on it to get the pane itself to load. Hit TAB repeatedly until you have to focus on the toggle for Show home button, then toggle it on by hitting the space bar.  As soon as you do this, two additional radio buttons appear.  The first is New Tab Page, and this radio button is selected by default.  Directly beneath it is a second radio button for a specific page URL, announced as Enter URL radio button, which is stippled out as not accessible and rather odd to get to in that you must down arrow when you have focus on the New Tab Page radio button to gain focus on it.  TAB will not work. Once you have focus on it you can activate it, then the actual edit box for the URL you wish to enter becomes accessible, and a single TAB lands you in it to enter the URL for the page you want as a home page.   Once you've entered that URL a save button becomes active right next to it.  Tab to the Save button, activate it, and you're done.


Setting what the browser opens when you first fire it up
:
Once you open Edge settings, tab once (which should land you on the Profiles pane selection in the settings list - it's first), down arrow 3 times and you will land on the Start, home, & new tabs pane entry.  Hit Enter on it to get the pane itself to load.  Hit TAB to throw focus into the On Startup Pane contents, which will be composed of three radio buttons:
Open the new tab pageOpen tabs from the previous session, and Open these pages.   If you select the first or second option, you're done.  If you select the third, additional controls appear that allow you to add a list of specific pages (which could be a single page) or to set all currently open tabs as the list of pages.


Changing the Search Engine in the Chromium-based Edge Browser


(The steps start at number three, since the common steps one and two were mentioned at the outset)

3. Tab once to land on the Profiles item in the Settings tree. Down arrow once to get to the Privacy and Services item, then hit Enter to get that pane to load.

 

4. Hit Tab to throw focus into the pane.  Hit CTRL+F to bring up Find, then enter Address as your search term.  Hit Enter to run that Find.

 

5. The Address Bar entry text will be found.  Hit escape to close the search, then Hit Tab once to land on the actual button for same and activate it.

 

6. You're now in the Address bar settings, and there are three controls there, the titles of which are pretty self explanatory.  To set your default search engine in the address bar, use the setting for that.  To change your default search engine for the browser, go to the last option, Manage search engines, then:

  

             a) Tab once to land in the search box.

             b) Start typing the name of the search engine you wish to use.  If it's one of "the big ones" like Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc., it will very likely be the only search result returned, but sometimes it isn't.

             c) Hit TAB three times.  If your preferred search engine is what you've landed on move to step 7, if it isn't, then down arrow through the results until you land on the search engine you want.

 

7. Right arrow three times to land on the "More Actions" button for that search engine and activate it.

 

8.  This will bring up a pop-up menu, with "Make default" being the first item.  Since that's what you're trying to do, activate that option.

 

You're done.  You can close the settings tab.

Hi Madison,
Perhaps someone else can tell you how to do this, but you can go into the
settings and set your start up window for Edge to come up as blank. Then it
comes up in the edit field for searching. You can even change your search
engine if you like too.

Actually, Bill, it just might work. For example, I frequently use Google to search for items on Amazon because it does a much better job of limiting results to specifics. An easy example is a search for a specific symphony. With Amazon, you can get a slew of results for the particular composer, but Amazon doesn’t seem to find particular symphonies, just a long list of many recordings where “symphony” is in the recording’s details. Or it might be a pillow with specific dimensions. It’s critical to begin the Google search with the website name followed by a colon, then as much specific detail as you can provide. For instance:

 

Amazon.com: Mozart, symphony 38

 

If I know the conductor of the performance I want, I’ll include it.

moderated very annoying issue whenever I open Edge

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Whenever I open Microsoft Edge to do a search I either get breaking news alerts
or search suggestions (Amazon, Facebook and many other things) before I've even
typed anything into the search box. Before anyone asks these are not things that
I set up previously that I now want to get rid of Can anyone tell me how to stop
both of these things from happening? Using latest versions of Edge, Jaws and
Windows 11.

I just tried this and pressed the Jaws cursor-the minus on the numb pad.

 

Thanks. I was getting the number of pages by using the Jaws cursor to move up and down the document. If I was not on the first page it might say something like 3 of 8 or 4 of 8 and so on depending on what page I was on.

You can find out the number of pages in a PDF document, among other metadata, by going to the document’s Properties.

Once you are in the document, press control d, and you will then have a number of tabs to tab through. To read the info in these tabs, you need to either use the Jaws cursor or virtualize the window using Jaws + alt + w. Unfortunately, I don’t remember which of these tabs the page number is in, so I can only point you in the general direction of the answer.

No, I am saying the opposite. If you just paste the text from the pdf into Word, you are not getting the benefit of Word's conversion process. So try opening the pdf in Word, and look at what you get versus pasting the text into Word, and looking at what you get with that method. Try them both.

Thanks for the colon. I’ve not been using that one. I use this all the time rather than using the search on web sites. Some of them are flakey and others useless.

Actually, Bill, it just might work. For example, I frequently use Google to search for items on Amazon because it does a much better job of limiting results to specifics. An easy example is a search for a specific symphony. With Amazon, you can get a slew of results for the particular composer, but Amazon doesn’t seem to find particular symphonies, just a long list of many recordings where “symphony” is in the recording’s details. Or it might be a pillow with specific dimensions. It’s critical to begin the Google search with the website name followed by a colon, then as much specific detail as you can provide.

No, I am saying the opposite. If you just paste the text from the pdf into Word, you are not getting the benefit of Word's conversion process. So try opening the pdf in Word, and look at what you get versus pasting the text into Word, and looking at what you get with that method. Try them both.

So you are saying to copy and paste it in to word, rather than just using word to open the file?

I believe it will convert more normally if you use Word to convert the file.

Thanks, Bill.

Is there any difference in copying and pasting from a pdf, and activating the context menu on a pdf and selecting Open with…, then use Word to open the document, or does it convert the same.

 

Thanks,

Dennis T. Brown

If "Read entire document is set, it will save the entire document.

Will that save the entire document, or just the current page?

Here's how I do it:

 

1.  open the pdf doc.

 

2.  then use control A to copy entire document.

 

3.  Use the copy command (ctrl C) to copy to clipboard.

 

 

4.  Open MS Word andcopy the doc. to your new document

5.  Save doc. with new name

 

6.  Breath sigh of relief because task is fini!!!!

Hi,

 

Could someone please recall me how to save a PDF as a Word document? I remember one had to select and paste text into a blank Word document, but I don’t remember the keystroke to save it as such.

 

Cheers,

Gezim

Hi,
As Kestrell and others have pointed out, you can run into various problems with PDF's. For best results generally, use Adobe Acrobat Reader rather than one of the browser PDF readers. And you can read about the vvarious issues encountered and how to deal with them in Chapter 10 of my book.
Regards,
David
