Hi!

 

I am using Skype 7 and Doug Lee’s scripts for Skype.  Is there a list of the keyboard commands somewhere for this?

 

Thanks,

Richard

With apps I typically type  in the name of the app in the windows search box, press the application/context key once the app is in the list, press go to location and then once on the program in its folder, use the context key to create the desktop shortcut.

When on the JAWS icon on your desktop use the Alt and enter key to get into the dialog to create the shortcut, tab to the box that will allow you to assign the letter for the shortcut and type J, it may already be there by default, then tab to ok, the keystroke should be, control/alt/j. HTH

Dear list,

I know I’ve done it before but can’t seem to remember. I need to set up a short cut for starting jaws as it disappeared somehow. Instructions for this would be greatly appreciated. thanks

the restart.

Hello Mario,

I have only 1 more suggestion. Perhaps the shutdown is being blocked by
an open application.

Try shutting down with the force option.

In the run box, type:
shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Hello Mario,

You should do a test.

First make sure that you have the shutdown.exe program in the folder:
c:\windows\system32

In Windows 7, it should be visible in the local C: tree structure.
If not, go to the command prompt and type:
dir c:\windows\shutdown.exe /s

The "/s" option is necessary to search through the sub directories of
c:\windows\
It may take a few minutes for the search to complete.

If you have a shutdown.exe program, make note of the exact path.

Then do the test by typing manually this restart command.

Open the run box with the Windows key plus r
type: shutdown.exe -r -t 00

You might have to precede the shutdown.exe with the entire path.
c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

If the test works, then the desktop shortcut must be looked as to why it
isn't executing the command.

Go to the desktop with the Windows key plus d.
Highlight the shortcut and press ENTER.

To examine the desktop shortcut, highlight it and press alt plus ENTER.
Tab between the target and the shortcut hot key fields.
The shortcut target field should contain the command. The hot key might
not be right.
Tab to the ok or cancel buttons.

Good luck.

Good Morning David,

I guess that both the dash and the slash is correct.

I just tried both from the run box and both work.

A few days ago I finally searched for the shutdown.exe syntax and I got
this web site.

http://ss64.com/nt/shutdown.html

It uses the slash for the command line options.

I created the two short cuts for my desktop. Both the shutdown and
restart have the slash and they both work.

Hello David,

Thanks for the steps to create the new shortcut.
I finally found time to Google the actual syntax for the shutdown
command.

The target line syntax, you gave is not correct.
Shutdown -s -t 0

The "-" dash should be "/" slash.
The /s is for shutdown. Reboot is /r.

The "01" (at the end of the line is the time until shutdown.

For reboot it should be:
shutdown.exe /r /t 00

This works in both Windows 7 and 10.

Re: short cuts

David Moore
 

Hi,

Here is what you do.

Press windows+R to open the run dialog. Type this phrase:

shell:appsfolder

Then, a list of all win10 apps and all other apps will be there. Just arrow to the app you want to put on the desktop. Press applications key, or shift+F10. Arrow to create shortcut, and press enter. You will hear a message saying that you cannot create a short cut here, do you want to put one on the desktop. Just press enter on yes, and the short cut will be placed on your desktop. This method works for any kind of app, even the win10 universal apps.

Take care,

When on the JAWS icon on your desktop use the Alt and enter key to get into the dialog to create the shortcut, tab to the box that will allow you to assign the letter for the shortcut and type J, it may already be there by default, then tab to ok, the keystroke should be, control/alt/j. HTH

Re: shut down Windows 10?

Peter Tesar
 

Hello Mario,

I have only 1 more suggestion. Perhaps the shutdown is being blocked by an open application.

Try shutting down with the force option.

In the run box, type:
shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

I guess that both the dash and the slash is correct.

I just tried both from the run box and both work.

It uses the slash for the command line options.

Re: Extracting Audio From DVD's

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.
 

Hi Mitch,

This sounds good.

First, a question just to confirm the obvious, I think. How well does it work with JAWS and/or NVDA?

Second, how does disc audio navigation work on discs where there are different segments comprising the DVD? For example, if I have a DVD with Season one of Favorite TV Show, and from the DVD itself, I can select Episode 1, 2, or any other episode up to Episode 14, is this functionality preserved in an audio file extraction?
Thank, Keith

Hello;
If you wish to create a shutdown shortcut,
Try the following;

1, desktop,
Ctrl+spacebar to unselect any icon,

2, applications key, down arrow enter on, new sub-menu,
Now choose shortcut,

3, in the edit box type in,
Shutdown -s -t 0

Now tab next, you can give the shortcut a name, example,
Shortcut.exe,
Now go to finish.
Now if you desire, you could create a hotkey for the shortcut.
If you wanted to have a shortcut to restart you would use the same
steps,
instead of zero at the end, use, 01
Hope this helps.

Also, start menu, tab to navigation, down arrow to power. Hit enter and
choose option.

Windws+x, then u, then u.
Also, go to the desktop, then press alt+f4.

For me, the alt+DEL did not work.
However, what did work, was ctrl+alt+DEL.

Depending on Windows 10 Home or Pro, the number of tabs differed, to
get to the shut down button.

Select the shutdown button and, if you hear "shutdown", just press
ENTER. That shutdown the system.
