There is something in settings to do this if you want to do it all the time. I’m not sure how to set that, but I know I’ve come across it when setting Edge up.

The easiest way I've found is using SHIFT + Enter when focus is on the link.  It's the keyboard equivalent of SHIFT + Left Click, which forces a link to open in a new Window rather than a new tab.

Hi,

 

When I activate a link that opens a HTML page I want it to open a new Edge session rather than opening a new page in an existing session.  Is there a way to do that?

 

Thanks.

Hello:

It is working fine on my Windows 10 machine. One difference, however. I am running JAWS out of the System Tray.

I will determine now if that makes a difference.

Cordially,

Hi,

I just looked up the command in JAWS and it seems like it has been broken. I would call Freedom Scientific and inquire from Tech Support if indeed it is broken.

Greetings everyone.
For some reason the command to restart Jaws (insert plus spacebar followed by f4), is not working on my pc. When I press that keystroke the Jaws window does not go away. I rebooted my computer which temporarily fixed it, but now it is not working again. Also, the voice command to restart Jaws is also not working. I am running Jaws version
2022 (April 2022 update), and Windows 11 version 21h2. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
Thanks.

For clarification, shortcuts wouldn't work for me as, with some frequently
used sites, I have 30-40 links saved for use.
I do use shortcuts in that way, as you apparently do, for a few things
such as a local weather forecast,
a nightly financial newsletter update.
If one is resourceful, it's possible to make certain complicated things to
do relatively easy.

Thanks for posting that idea as perhaps some reading this wouldn't have
thought of it.
And that's what makes a list like this great; the sharing of ideas that
work for others and might also for you.

Hi, Stan.

1. Open Chrome.

2. Go to Settings with ALT plus F, followed by S.

3. Find AutoFill, and open that category.

4. Open the Passwords link.

5. In the search box on that page, search for the website you want to UnSave.

6. The website and password will be shown below, with an option to delete the entire record of the website, username, and password.

Judy's last point is something I've always done with websites I anticipate

I collect links to pages or sections I expect to visit frequently so I can

Having those urls in a .htm file has saved me much grief and time.
I cannot speak of the Chase site; but this approach has proved valuable
for some sites people have suggested could not be used.
Consider this approach.

Hi Kevin,
 
Try the following:
 
1.  Find a PDF file on your computer, but don't open it just have it highlighted.
 
2.  Press alt+enter for properties.
 
3.  Now shift+tab to the Change button and press it.  You will be  asked what program you want to use to open PDF files.  Tab and there will be a list
of proposed programs.
 
4.  Once you are on your preferred program, select it and you should be good to go.
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi:

Does anyone have experience with the accessibility of www.chase.com using the latest build of JAWS 2022? The landing page looks fine. Unfortunately, in my experience, you never know how accessible a banking site really is until you are a customer and are actually trying to use all of the services offered such as checking and savings accounts, bill pay, credit card accounts, Etc.

Thanks for any advice on this before I decide to move my banking relationship to Chase.

moderated Re: Pinning apps to taskbar question

 

Bill covered answering Mike's question, and thanks for that, but Robin's addition indirectly brings up that if you use WinKey + Number and an instance of that app is already open, it will throw focus to the open app, not start another instance.  If you want another instance of the app, say another Notepad window to open for a different file, that's when you must use the WinKey + Shift + Number shortcut.

There are certain apps, mostly those that do not feature tabs for having multiple things open, where I have frequent need to have more than one instance open.  Notepad just so happens to probably be the one where that's most frequently the case.

moderated Re: Pinning apps to taskbar question

Van Lant, Robin
 

Even in Windows 10, I’m finding the Taskbar icons are faster at opening than launching from the desktop shortcut.   I don’t  typically remember to use the Windows key number combo, but I’ll use Windows T, then arrow to what I want. I have the icons in order of what I open more frequently.  I also like that it will tell me if the program is already running, which can be nice if I have a lot open.  I think the reason I started using taskbar was that it was really straightforward to search for an a app in the start menu, then do a context menu to add to task bar. My recollection is that it took more steps to add to the desktop, ten go create a shortcut, so I tried the task bar. Now, I tend to open applications from  the task bar and leave my desktop for network folder shortcuts and  shortcuts to specific web applications I use here at work.

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.

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.

You might have to go to settings center with insert six on the numbers row, then hit insert control d for default for it to come up, because it would apply to all programs.
