Hi!

I have recently bought a new computer and my friend downloaded the
latest version of Jaws, but since she has done this, can''t get into the
jaws menue.

When I press alt o, it just says "All about jaws" I don't think she's
installed Jaws completely!

Can anyone help me get the Jaws options menue back?

First of all, it depends on whether you have JAWS running from the System tray.

If you have JAWS running from the System tray, then the Desktop command to open the main JAWS menu, is JAWS Key+J.

The laptop command is:

CTRL+Shift+Jaws key+J.

If you are running JAWS in its own Window, then Alt+O

Will open the Options menu, and you should hear Basics, and down arrow to voices sub menu. Alt+H would open the help menu and so on.

Hi Val,
 
If Jaws is running from the system tray you'll need to press, Jaws key + J, to access the Jaws context menu.
 
You can also, Alt + Tab, to find the Jaws window.  If you find it press the, Alt key, to open the Jaws menues, thennavigate with your arrow keys.

Hi,

As for shutting down, if you're talking about shutting the actual laptop down, you can press windows key and x, then press u and then u again , which is a shortcut key for shutting down. Or instead of pressing u the second time you can use arrows up and down to move through different shut down options such as restart, sleep etc. I don't know what type of lap top you have, my laptop although it doesn't have function keys, if I press the key that would usually be the f4 key, it works as if I've pressed alt and f4 , but without needing to press alt. hope that last part made sense lol

Check the status of the hardware acceleration option in advanced settings.
Also, there are a bunch of tweeks one can do in Firefox to squeeze a bit
more performance out of the browser. You have to play around the the
configuration setting of FireFox though to do this. If you're comfortable
with palying around in this part of the browser, then no big deal, but if
not... best to leave it alone.

Hi,

As for shutting down, if you're talking about shutting the actual laptop down, you can press windows key and x, then press u and then u again , which is a shortcut key for shutting down. Or instead of pressing u the second time you can use arrows up and down to move through different shut down options such as restart, sleep etc. I don't know what type of lap top you have, my laptop although it doesn't have function keys, if I press the key that would usually be the f4 key, it works as if I've pressed alt and f4 , but without needing to press alt. hope that last part made sense lol

Re: unzipping many files at a time

Carol Smith
 

Hi,

You can use 7zip.  You select the zip files you want to extract and then press your applications key and then 7 to open 7zip.
Next, arrow dow down to extract to and this will automatically name each folder by the name of the zipped file.  On my Windows 7 machine with more limited space, I could still unzip around 50 files at a time.  The folders will be in the same place where your sip files are, so, if you don't want to sort through a lot of files, I would reccommend creating a folder just for the zip files before you extract them.  The folders will then be at the top of the list and the files will be at the bottom, making it easy to delete the zip files.

Re: unzipping many files at a time

Hi, Nino. Install 7-zip, then put the files in an empty folder. Select all the files with CONTROL plus A. Press Applications key, press the seven key on the numbers row, not on the number pad, then press the letter E a couple of times until 7-zip says:

Extract to star. It will then unzip all the books into their own appropriate folders.
