Hi, Mike. Bryan isn't saying that you can pin more than one shortcut to a corresponding number. He is saying that, for example, if you have Microsoft Edge pinned to position 2 in the Task Bar, you can run more than one instance of Microsoft Edge, by pressing Windows Key plus SHIFT plus 2.

Hi Brian,

 

Are you saying you can have more than 1 shortcut pinned to any one position on the Taskbar? 

 

If so, would you pin a second or third icon to any one  position the same way you would pin the first one?

Thanks much.

The biggest advantage for your most frequently used apps is the ability to fire them up with the WinKey + Number shortcut to open the app pinned to that numbered position (starting with 1 and ending with 0, for a total of 10 positions).  You can also use WinKey + Shift + Number to open a second (or third, . . .) instance of the app pinned to that numbered position.

Hi Loy,
 
Especially with Windows 11, pinning shortcuts to the Taskbar helps a lot.  When I have Dropbox running shortcut keystrokes assigned to the desktop shortcuts take forever to respond, if they respond at all.  But, with my most used shortcuts pinned to the Taskbar I get immediate response when Dropbox is running.
 
For regular use when Dropbox isn't running the Taskbar shortcuts still respond quicker than keystrokes assigned to the desktop shortcuts.
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Michelle's Home Emails
 

hi there 

Michelle Stevens here,

 I use Thunderbird sometimes for my business. Navigating from inbox to your main window the message area is done mainly using f6 or tab. if you are in the folder list it helps if you expand the tree with the right arrow. Or closewith left arrow. 

Jaws reads the menus no worries. 


ope this helps. I am not sure if there are scripts for thunderbird maybe someone can let us know. Kind wishes Michelle

Hi all. I just recently switched from NVDA to JAWS to take advantage of some of the tools JAWS offers, and while I really like it, I’m having some trouble using Thunderbird with it. I have the latest stable version of Thunderbird and JAWS 2022 on Windows 11. One of the biggest issues I’ve noticed is that when using Shift and the arrow keys to move through the message list and select messages, a lot of time JAWS just says, “Selected.” It doesn’t say the information about the message I’m on, so I have to use commands to find this out. It will occasionally say the information about the message, but not usually. I also find it difficult to switch to alerts that might pop up, such as when installing an add-on. Does anyone else encounter these issues? Also, do you have any tips on using Thunderbird with JAWS? Thanks.

just curious. How much do you pay per song or album you buy.
I think back to all the 45s, lps, cassettes, cds I've bought over the
years and eventually discarded -- thousands upon thousands of dollars
listened to for a few times and generally later only occasionally touched.
I didn't discover the beauty of services such as Amazon Music Unlimited
until I got a couple of Echo devices 3 or so yrs back.
I've listened to more music in the last couple of years than I did for the
previous 2-3 decades when, most of my listening, was via radio stations
first over the air and then internet.
I just don't see the necessity of owning music any longer given the
convenience of a service for around $100 a yr or so.
And I can call up whatever I want when I want it; use playlists;
structured requests, and so on.
I just wish someone had knocked me in the head telling me of these music
services yrs and yrs ago and getting me to pay attention.

One of these days I'll get out all my Time-Life CDs and store-bought CDs and
rip the music from them.
I refuse to pay again for the media in another format.
When I do buy one in electronic format from somewhere like Amazon, it's
because it came out after the peak of the CD music era.
And when I can get it from Youtube in as good or better quality than
Amazon.com, I'll go with the free option.

Hello,

I am a jaws 2022 user who has never used the web based version of outlook mail and I might have to start using the web based version of outlook mail at a new job that I will be starting shortly.

So I am really, really hoping jaws 2022 works at least fairly well, fairly smooth with the web based version of outlook mail. Can someone please maybe be so kind as to let me know if they find that jaws works yes fairly well, yes works smooth with no headaches with the web based version of outlook mail or if on the other hand they particularly maybe find that jaws does not work too well with the web based version of outlook mail?

Will I maybe need to use the outlook mail shortcut keys most of the time to get jaws to work well with the web based version of outlook mail? Any possible help that maybe I can get on this important matter would be so, so very much appreciated! Much, much thanks in advance for any possible help I can maybe get with this. 😊







Kindest regards,

Hank
