Here's another note. I also have an HP laptop and, in addition to that missing application key, the F1 through Insert Keys don’t' work as I need them to. I haven't gotten to having someone try to change the bios. I mention this because sometimes that Shift F10 combination won't work unless you also hit the FN key. Same goes for the Insert key. It's rather annoying.

Hi All,
I have an HP lap top with a 101 type keyboard which means it has the numb pad. There is an annoying problem. The key that is usually between the ALT key and the CTRL key on the right side of the space bar is not there. This was the key that we can use to open context menus mostly the same as pressing the right mouse button. I miss having this function cause in some applications routing the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor doesn't always work.
Does anyone who has an HP lap top with this missing key know a work around or some key combination HP came up with to replace the key?

Thx -Steve

moderated Odd behavior with latest JFW update

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

Ever since updating to the latest JFW March update, I’m noticing an odd behavior on webpages while in Firefox 52 ESR. Jaws will sometimes hang and appear to refresh placing me back towards the top and if I try to jump back and forth with the control plus up or down arrow for example to get speech back, I’ll end up in a different tab.

Anyone else dealing with this?

Hi All,
I have an HP lap top with a 101 type keyboard
which means it has the numb pad. There is an
annoying problem. The key that is usually
between the ALT key and the CTRL key on the
right side of the space bar is not there. This
was the key that we can use to open context
menus mostly the same as pressing the right
mouse button. I miss having this function
cause in some applications routing the Jaws
cursor to the PC cursor doesn't always work.
Does anyone who has an HP lap top with this
missing key know a work around or some key
combination HP came up with to replace the key?

Thx -Steve

Hi, Cynthia. This is because FN plus Left Arrow is only HOME, and FN plus
RIGHT ARROW is only end. If you want beginning of document you must press
three keys, FN plus LEFT ARROW plus CONTROL. End of document is FN plus
RIGHT ARROW plus CONTROL.

Subject: HP Lap top with a missing key

Hi All,
I have an HP lap top with a 101 type keyboard which means it has the numb
pad. There is an annoying problem. The key that is usually between the ALT
key and the CTRL key on the right side of the space bar is not there. This
was the key that we can use to open context menus mostly the same as
pressing the right mouse button. I miss having this function cause in some
applications routing the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor doesn't always work.
Does anyone who has an HP lap top with this missing key know a work around
or some key combination HP came up with to replace the key?

Thx -Steve

I meant SHIFT plus F10, not SHIFT plus F11.

Hi. Use SHIFT plus the F11 key.

I am interestingly having a similar problem with my new Dell, and it sounds
as though it is related to missing keys. For me, the shift F10 solution
worked for bringing up the context menu. What I can't seem to do any more is
use control home or control end to go to the top or bottom of a document in
word 2016. The left and right arrows seem to be marked as home and end, but
that key command doesn't seem to work anymore. Is there another command for
this?

Shift+F10 usually works. That's a windows command, not an HP command.
