In newer versions of Edge, control+H takes you to a history dialog, I always hit 'B' to go to the first button in the dialog then hit enter, then you are taken to the history page in a tab that will close with
control+W.

There used to be a setting that disabled that dialog so you went straight to the history page, but apparently Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, disabled it.

They put that same stupid dialog in front of the favorites manager. I hate both of them and wish there was a way to get rid of them.

Control+P takes you to a preview of what you are going to print, if you
want to bypass that and just go to the system print dialog, hit
control+shift+P instead.

I can go in and arrow up and down through the history, and press enter

This is a very, very common convention indeed, and has been for some time now.  If you're not a screen reader user there's almost never a time where the use of the function key row as "actual function keys" just doesn't arise.  On the rare occasions it does, holding down the Fn key and hitting the needed function key on that row makes it act as a standard function key rather than a media key.

There are a few makers, Lenovo being one of them, that allows the media key function to be toggled on/off within Windows using a utility they supply.  Most, however, require the media keys/action keys/whatever the given manufacturer calls them to be toggled off in UEFI/BIOS, which requires sighted assistance since there is no screen reader support before the operating system loads.

Hi, Loy.

The Kinesis line of ergonomic computer keyboards is an alternative to the traditional keyboard design. Most widely known among these are the contoured Advantage line, which feature recessed keys in two bucket-like hollows which allow the fingers to reach keys with less effort as well as a central array of modifiers such as enter, alt, backspace, control, etc. where they can be pressed with the thumbs. All Kinesis keyboards (except the Essential) support the capability to re-map individual keys. Recent models also come with the ability to switch between the Dvorak layout with the press of a special key combination, though keycaps printed with dual-legend QWERTY/Dvorak letters are included only on specific models. Moreover, the keys are laid out in perfect vertical rows to avoid the need for lateral movements during typing.

Hello. So I got a new computer with Windows 11, so I have been trying to figure out the layout of the new laptop and all of that. And I’ve noticed that when I’m on a webpage and I want to hit insert plus F7 to go to a links list, it doesn’t work, same with insert plus F4 to unload JAWS (Not that I would ever actually want to do that, but I was just trying to mess around with it). It’s like my function keys aren’t working in the way that I need them to. Like for example, I believe it is my F5 key that functions as a mute button right now, but I don’t want that, I want them to just function as regular F one through F 12 keys. I posted on a Facebook group, and I was told to do the function key plus escape, and I’ve tried that and it still is the same way. Is JAWS supposed to say anything when I perform that action of function key plus escape? Usually I’m pretty tech savvy, but this not being able to do insert plus F7 for the links list is kind of baffling right now. I know I can use the Hey Sharky feature and have it pull up links that way, but still, I’d like to have the normal key command work. Thanks.

Michael, the easiest way that I have found to do that is to make an email template with all of the people in the two or the C C field. Fill out all of the rest of it and then when you put the student notes in there all you have to do is bring up that one template fill in the date and the information about the class and send it and it will send it to everybody. If you need any help just let me know and I will give you my contact information.

Hi Dave,
 
Okay, give this a try:
1. With Waterfox open press, Alt + T, for Tools & press the letter, O, for Options.
2. Tab 1 time and press, Insert + Z, to turn the virtual cursor off.  You now should be on the, General tab.  Every time you down arrow to another tab the virtual cursor will turn itself on, so down arrow and press, Insert + Z, to turn the virtual cursor off, but if you want to tab through any particular tab leave the virtual cursor on to make any changes to your settings.
3. So, in short, turn the virtual cursor off to navigate between tabs and leave the virtual cursor turned on to navigate within the tabs to make settings changes.  All the settings are either checkboxes or comboboxes.

To be totally honest, navigating the Waterfox menues with Jaws is a total pain in the A**!  You have to constantly toggle the virtual cursor on / off because if you tell the virtual cursor to stay turned off for all applications, it doesn't.  At least this is my experience.  When I want to change any settings in the Waterfox menues I use NVDA and it navigates the menues flawlessly.

Hi Dave,
 
Okay, give this a try:
1. With Waterfox open press, Alt + T, for Tools & press the letter, O, for Options.
2. Tab 1 time and press, Insert + Z, to turn the virtual cursor off.  You now should be on the, General tab.  Every time you down arrow to another tab the virtual cursor will turn itself on, so down arrow and press, Insert + Z, to turn the virtual cursor off, but if you want to tab through any particular tab leave the virtual cursor on to make any changes to your settings.
3. So, in short, turn the virtual cursor off to navigate between tabs and leave the virtual cursor turned on to navigate within the tabs to make settings changes.  All the settings are either checkboxes or comboboxes.

I tried NVDA to navigate the Waterfox Options menu to try and turn off the save passwords option in Waterfox but with no luck.

Hi Dave,
 
To be totally honest, navigating the Waterfox menues with Jaws is a total pain in the A**!  You have to constantly toggle the virtual cursor on / off because if you tell the virtual cursor to stay turned off for all applications, it doesn't.  At least this is my experience.  When I want to change any settings in the Waterfox menues I use NVDA and it navigates the menues flawlessly.

Hello everyone:

I am using Waterfox at the suggestion of someone on this list. So far, I am

My problem is, how do I disable Water fox saving passwords?

Any and all suggestions will be very much appreciated.

If you are in the favorites manager, first letter navigation may not work, I have never tried it there.

Personally I still wish Microsoft would resurrect Internet Explorer, that was in my humble opinion the best browser.

In newer versions of Edge, control+H takes you to a history dialog, I always hit 'B' to go to the first button in the dialog then hit enter, then you are taken to the history page in a tab that will close with
control+W.

There used to be a setting that disabled that dialog so you went straight to the history page, but apparently Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, disabled it.

They put that same stupid dialog in front of the favorites manager. I hate both of them and wish there was a way to get rid of them.

Control+P takes you to a preview of what you are going to print, if you
want to bypass that and just go to the system print dialog, hit
control+shift+P instead.

I can go in and arrow up and down through the history, and press enter

Hi all,

I was just wondering,  is there a way to check for updates in Edge or are they just done automatically? I do my best to keep all of the applications that I use up-to-date so that's why I'm asking. Thanks
