Hi Carolyn, I don’t use that function often, so I am going by memory. I think it is a three-fingered triple tap. This same Juster can be used to enable the screen shade and disable it as well. Please, if there is anyone out there that knows my instructions are wrong, feel free to correct me. After all, I am might want to use the feature myself one day.

Shalom,

Bill Tessore

Exactly, and for those who work with desktop computers
turning off the screen certainly is an option, but using
Screen Shade which, by the way, is the name of the feature
(screen curtain is what Apple calls it) is much easier.

Also, David, as you found out the trick is not to press Jaws
Key+F11 even if you somehow simultaneously press the
spacebar as well but to press Jaws Key+Spacebar first and
then follow with the other key, F11 in this case
(Printscreen also works). This is called a "layered
keystroke" in Jaws and there are a bunch of these which are
very useful, here just a few:



Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by:

A = text analyser

C = clipboard text viewer.

H = Jaws speech history (super useful)

J = Search for Jaws commands

L = Lock the keyboard

O = Jaws OCR, you need to follow the 'O" with other letters
like "s" for OCR current screen, "w" OCR current Windows
etc.

R = Research It

S = Speech on demand/Mute

Z = Default user mode (this uses only Jaws default settings)



Most of these keystrokes are toggles, e.g. Jaws Key+Spacebar
and L will lock the keyboard, pressing the same key
combination again will unlock it.

Sieghard

Hi, Dave. Closing the lid of the laptop won't work if you're
using the laptop keyboard to work. This curtain is to
prevent others from seeing what you're working on. Also, my
Del laptop's onboard screen cannot be turned off, and
lowering the brightness doesn't dim it sufficiently for no
one to see it.

Thanks. The trick, I found is, not to press all 3
simultaneously. One presses insert space, then F 11. Doing
that, worked and I was able to turn the screen on or off.
Mind you, just turning off the monitor would work or closing
the lid of the lap top.

Hi, David. You must have Windows 10 in order for this to
work. The Keystrokes are:



JAWS key plus Space, then F11. Not F11 by itself.

Just for a laugh, I tried those instructions. It did not
work. What was brought up was the system tray. Yes, it was
a desktop layout and was JAWS 2018. I tried both insert
space or insert F 11. Neither worked.

Hi,

If you are using desktop layout:

Insert + Spacebar (insert on the numeric keypad is the Jaws
key when the numlock key is turned off)

Then F11

This will turn the screen curtain on if it is off and off if
it is on.

Hope that helps.

Introduction
 
Malwarebytes for Windows (“Malwarebytes”) is an "AV replacement."  It is not an AV.  It does not incorporate the same old engine
 
for file–infectors and other malware that you find in a typical AV or Internet security suite, the large and inefficient library of
 
signatures, or the bloatware features which are becoming more prevalent.
 
You don't need to pay for a traditional AV anymore!  At Malwarebytes, we have always approached things differently and, as many
 
people know based on their own positive experience with Malwarebytes finding and remediating malware that gets past AVs, we
 
know a thing or two about zero–day malware and their infection tactics.  We have always believed that no one product can do it
 
all, and the free AV that comes with modern operating systems, in conjunction with Malwarebytes is all you will ever need.
 
In today's modern threat world, bad guys have learned how to evade AV protection, making it more important than ever before
 
to be able to disrupt attacks in as many different stages of the attack chain as possible. Malwarebytes, layered with the AV (which
 
is the default mode) or as your stand–alone defense, is the most effective approach against modern threats.  And if all else fails,
 
you need the best remediation technology available.
 
Malwarebytes has been engineered to provide the most effective layered approach of prevention, detection and remediation
 
technologies:
 
 1. Application hardening, to make them more resilient against attacks.
 
 2. Anti–exploit technology, to shield applications from vulnerability exploits (currently one of the top infection vectors).
 
 3. Application Behavior Enforcement, an advanced and signature–less technology which prevents common infection
 
 vectors (e.g. web & email based social engineering).
 
 4. Anti–ransomware, a signature–less technology designed to behaviorally detect ransomware.
 
 5. Revamped Anti–Malware and Web Blocking engines, offering more aggressive detection techniques.
 
 6. Hardened and modular architecture design, allowing seamless integration of new detection and protection technologies
 
 in the future.
 
 7. Highly effective as always in malware remediation, an often overlooked part of the protection stack.
 
 8. Ability to run as primary protection (no AV) or secondary protection (alongside existing AV).
 
 9. Engineered to be our next corporate endpoint client, providing major improvements to our endpoint management
 
 capabilities and new enterprise–focused offerings
 
 10. Last but not least, our Research Team has been growing and adapting lately, with notable additions to the lineup from
 
 JRT and AdwCleaner, our new aggressive stance against PUPs, as well as new R&D technologies which we will be
 
 unveiling shortly.
 
Welcome to the Malwarebytes User Guide!

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 2
 
System Requirements
 
Following are minimum requirements for a computer system on which Malwarebytes may be installed.  Please note that these
 
requirements do not include any other functionality that the computer is responsible for.
 
 • Operating System: Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista (Service Pack 1 or later), Windows
 
 XP (Service Pack 3 or later, 32–bit only)
 
 PLEASE NOTE: Anti–ransomware protection is not supported for Windows XP or Windows Vista, due to architectural
 
 constraints.
 
 • CPU:  800 MHz or faster, with SSE2 technology.  This includes most modern Intel x86 processors as well as AMD’s Athlon
 
 64, Sempron 64, Turion 64 and Phenom CPU families.  Please refer to the following page for further information:
 
 
 • RAM:  2048 MB (64–bit OS), 1024 MB (32–bit OS, except 256 MB for Windows XP)
 
 • Free Disk Space:  250 MB
 
 • Recommended Screen Resolution: 1024x768 or higher
 
 • Active Internet Connection
 
WARNING: If you are upgrading from Malwarebytes Anti–Malware version 2.x and have enabled Malwarebytes’ self–protection
 
feature, please disable it prior to initiating the upgrade.  It prevents the Malwarebytes installation program from doing its job.
 

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 3
 
Installation
 
To begin the installation, double–click on the Malwarebytes installation file which you downloaded.  If you are installing
 
Malwarebytes on a Windows version newer than Windows XP, a Windows dialog box will be presented in the middle of your screen,
 
labeled User Account Control.  Verify that the publisher is listed as Malwarebytes Corporation and click Yes.  This Windows security
 
feature assures limited application capabilities unless and until you authorize higher capabilities.  Installation will begin once this
 
has been approved.  The installation program guides you and allows you to provide alternate information if you do not wish to
 
accept defaults.  Each screen also allows you to terminate installation if you do not wish to continue.
 
Free, Premium Trial or Premium?
 
Before you begin, we want to let you know that throughout this guide, you will see references to the Free, Premium Trial, and
 
Premium versions of Malwarebytes.  This is likely unfamiliar territory for new Malwarebytes users.  The following link provides a
 
basic rundown on the differences between the Free and Premium versions of Malwarebytes.
 
 
These differences are also shown in the Malwarebytes interface immediately after it has been installed.  See below….
 

The Premium Trial is a 14–day opportunity to use the Premium version of the program, and to see if it is better suited to your needs.
 
The Premium Trial is available at no cost, but you can only use it one time for each version of Malwarebytes.  The Premium Trial is
 
automatically started during installation.  Once installed, the program provides options to convert from Free to Premium, and from
 
Premium Trial to Premium.
 
If you elect to use the Premium Trial and do not wish to purchase a Premium subscription at the end of the trial, your Malwarebytes
 
program will revert to Free mode.  The only differences will be that the added features enabled by the trial will cease to function.
 
All other functionality remains unchanged.
 
If you are a new Malwarebytes user, or are a free/Premium Trial user upgrading to this version, you will be alerted that a scan has
 
not been run.  Click Scan Now and Malwarebytes will run a scan for you.  After the scan (and cleanup, if needed) has been
 
completed, you will see the user interface as shown below.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 4
 
Please take note of the Why Premium button in the lower left corner.  Click that button for a brief slide show that describes the
 
differences between Free and Premium modes.  While Malwarebytes does an effective job of disinfecting your computer after an
 
attack, there is no replacement for preventing the attack from ever happening.
 
If you have already purchased a license, you may wish to activate your copy of Malwarebytes at this time.  You can do that now (or
 
at any time) by clicking the Activate License button at the top right portion of the Malwarebytes user interface.
 
Activation
 
Malwarebytes is available for users of any modern Windows client to download and install at no cost.  You can also purchase an
 
annual subscription, which entitles you to take advantage of real–time protection, scan/update scheduling and access policies.  If
 
no license has been installed into the product, the blue title bar at the top of the screen will show two buttons, Activate License
 
and Upgrade Now.  When clicked, Upgrade Now launches a browser window which opens to the Malwarebytes web site
 
pricing/purchase page.  Your license information will be in an email sent to you by Malwarebytes at the time of purchase.  Locate
 
your license information and click the Activate License button.  You will then see the following screen.
 

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 5
 
Please note the checkbox and the words “My license came with a License ID.”  If you are using our “old style” license, you will also
 
need to check that box and enter your License ID along with your Key.
 
Please note:  You must be online with an active Internet connection in order to successfully activate your Premium license.
 
The construction of the Key is different, so make sure that you choose the right screen for entering your license information based
 
on whether you have an ID and Key, or just a Key.  After entering your license information, click the Activate License button.  Your
 
Malwarebytes screen will refresh, as shown below.
 
Please note that the two license–related links in the Menu Bar have been replaced by a link called My Account.  Also note that the
 
banner has changed from Malwarebytes Premium Trial to Malwarebytes Premium.
 
A Final Word about Administrative Rights
 
If you installed Malwarebytes from a downloaded installation file, you automatically started a Premium Trial, and were offered the
 
capability to activate the Premium features if you had purchased an annual subscription.  You may have decided to wait until later.
 
If that is the case, please remember that you should be logged in to Windows as an Administrator before doing either of those
 
tasks.
 
We will go into much more detail about the features of Malwarebytes, but before doing that, we should introduce you to the
 
Malwarebytes user interface.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 6
 
Screen Layout
 
The Malwarebytes program interface is designed around a screen layout which is simplified and uncluttered.  We want to make it
 
easy for you to configure the program to serve your needs, and we hope this layout helps to do that.  The screenshot below shows
 
the Dashboard – the screen you see when Malwarebytes is launched for the first time.
 
Let's talk about the primary elements which make up our user interface.
 
Menu Bar
 
The Menu Bar is displayed at the top of the screen at all times. There are two buttons in the Menu Bar. A description for both
 
follows.
 
My Account
 
This button will take you to the setting options to manage your Malwarebytes subscription(s) and license(s). For more information,
 
please refer to pages 35–36 of this guide.
 
Notification Center
 
The Notification Center provides a convenient location to view recent notifications generated by Malwarebytes. Clicking the icon
 
will show the 5 most recent notifications. You may scroll down to view up to 25 notifications by using your mouse wheel. You can
 
view additional details for each notification by clicking it – Malwarebytes will bring you to the relevant screen.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 7
 

Menu Pane
 
The Menu Pane contains the main program options, which will be discussed in detail in this guide.  They consist of:
 
 • Dashboard: What you see here. While the exact details change over time, the look is consistent.
 
 • Scan: Select the type of scan you wish to run, run it, and view the results.
 
 • Quarantine: Delete or restore threats which have been detected by program scans.
 
 • Reports: View reports related to program operation, threats which have been detected, and threats which have been
 
 removed.
 
 • Settings: Configure every aspect of Malwarebytes, so that it can protect you efficiently.
 
In addition, there are settings for Account information.  While in Premium Trial mode, options are present to buy a Premium
 
subscription and to Activate the program.  Once you have purchased a subscription, those two options will revert to a single option
 
which handles details of your account.  More on those later.
 
Status/Option Pane
 
When the Dashboard is selected from the Menu Pane, the center of the screen is filled with the Status Pane.  It is designed to give
 
you quick information that tells you whether there is anything for you to be concerned about.  When the Dashboard is selected,
 
the Detail Pane is also displayed.  More on that momentarily.
 
When any menu option other than the Dashboard is selected, all space except the space used by the Menu Pane is allocated to the
 
selected menu option.  This provides sufficient room for information pertaining to any menu option to be cleanly displayed.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 8
 
Detail Pane
 
The Detail Pane is shown only when the Dashboard is selected.  It shows information on protection options, protection updates,
 
and detail pertaining to the most recent scan.  This information is shown on other screen displays as part of the menu option
 
selected by the user, but are all displayed here for quick recognition.
 

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 9
 
Dashboard
 
Each time Malwarebytes is launched, the first page visible to the user is the Dashboard.  It provides program status, and acts as a
 
launch pad for all program operations.  A screenshot of the user interface – featuring the Dashboard – is shown below for reference.
 
Status Pane
 
The main area of the screen is the Status Pane, providing current system status.  Within the Main Window, the first item displayed
 
is the Status Banner.  This banner displays a status message along with an icon, whose color is based on program status.  The color
 
is meant to alert the user to conditions which may require intervention.  Colors used are similar to traffic stop signals – green simply
 
indicates a good status; orange indicates a warning of a condition which may become more severe over time; red indicates that
 
your immediate attention is needed.  Following is a full list of status messages.  If a recommended method of correcting the
 
problem is immediately available, it will appear as a functional button on the banner itself.
 
 • Color: green (no problem)
 
 o Awesome! You’re protected. (Premium mode and Premium Trial modes which will expire more than 7 days in
 
 the future)
 
 o You’re running Malwarebytes Free. (free mode only)
 
 • Color: orange (non–critical problem)
 
 o You’re not fully protected.
 
 o Your Protection Updates are not current.
 
 o Your program version is out of date
 
 o Your Premium Trial ends in <x> days. (trial expiring in 3–7 days)
 
 o Renew to avoid losing protection against malware, bad websites, and other threats
 
 • Color: red (critical problem)
 
 o Your Premium Trial ends in <x> days. (trial expiring in 0–3 days)
 
 o Your trial has expired
 
 o Renew to avoid losing protection against malware, bad websites, and other threats
 
 o We were unable to renew your subscription (renewal failed, and you are now in 30–day grace period)
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 10
 
Real–Time Protection
 
This item shows the status for each of the four Real–Time Protection features.  Please note that real–time protection is enabled only
 
for Malwarebytes Premium and Malwarebytes Premium Trial users.  This feature is not available if you are using the Free version.
 
Settings
 
Settings are accessed from the Main Menu, and also by clicking the small gear at the top right of the Real–Time Protection panel.
 
When clicked, the Settings screen will be displayed, allowing access to all program settings.  Please refer to the Settings portion of
 
this guide (pages 24–35) for complete information on this topic.
 
Scan Status
 
This panel shows your scanning activity at a glance.  You can easily see when the last scan was completed, when the next scan is
 
scheduled, and the status of your protection updates.  There are four icons on the title bar for this panel, as shown here.
 

A description for each icon – in the order shown – is as follows.
 
View Scan Reports
 
This icon takes you to Reports, where you can view detailed reports on scans which Malwarebytes has performed on your computer.
 
Please note that information shown here is limited to the last scan that was executed.  See the Reports Pane (pages 21–23) for
 
information on reports as a whole.
 
Schedule a Scan
 
The second icon allows scans to be scheduled for automatic execution.  This option is available only for Malwarebytes Premium and
 
Malwarebytes Premium Trial users.  The icon remains visible in Free mode, but clicking it has no effect.  When clicked, the Settings
 
screen will be displayed, allowing access to the Scan Schedule screen.  Please refer to the Scan Schedule portion of this guide (pages
 
13–15) for full information on this topic.
 
Check for Updates
 
The third icon causes Malwarebytes to connect with Malwarebytes servers to check for protection updates more current than those
 
in use, and download them if they exist.  This option is functional for all program modes.
 
Help
 
The fourth icon links to the Malwarebytes User Guide on the Malwarebytes website.  This behavior is consistent throughout the
 
program.
 
Protection History
 
This panel shows three key statistics.  It shows how many items were scanned, how many threats were detected during scans, and
 
how many threats were detected by real–time protection.  Please note that the number of items scanned includes individual files
 
that are part of archive files, as well as components in dynamic link library (DLL) files.  Also note that real–time detections can only
 
occur in Premium and Premium Trial modes.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 11
 
Scan
 
The Scan Pane is the introduction to scan–related options in the program.  When you click Scan in the Menu Pane, you will see the
 
screen shown below.
 
On this screen, you may select the Scan Method and the Scan Schedule.  Let’s look first at Scan Methods.  There are three scan types
 
which can be executed – Threat Scan, Custom Scan, and Hyper Scan.  Hyper Scan is only available to users of the Premium or
 
Premium Trial modes.  Please note that global scan settings used by Threat Scans and Hyper Scans are selected in Settings (see
 
pages 30–31).  Following are more detailed descriptions of each of the scan modes.
 
Threat Scan
 
This method of scanning detects a large majority of threats that your computer may be faced with.  Areas and methods tested
 
include:
 
 • Memory Objects: Memory which has been allocated by operating system processes, drivers, and other applications.
 
 • Startup Objects: Executable files and/or modifications which will be initiated at computer startup.
 
 • Registry Objects: Configuration changes which may have been made to the Windows registry.
 
 • File System Objects: Files stored on your computer's local disk drives which may contain malicious programs or code
 
 snippets.
 
 • Heuristic Analysis: Analysis methods which we employ in the previously–mentioned objects – as well as in other areas –
 
 which are instrumental in detection of and protection against threats, as well as the ability to assure that the threats
 
 cannot reassemble themselves.
 
The Threat Scan is the scan method which we recommend for daily scans.  While it will not scan every file on your computer, it will
 
scan the locations which most commonly are the launch point for a malware attack.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 12
 
Custom Scan
 
You may also choose to run a custom scan.  A custom scan allows you to scan according to specifications which you define at the
 
time of the scan.  These settings will override scan settings defined elsewhere.  A screenshot of the custom scan configuration
 
screen is shown below.
 
Custom Scanning Options
 
These settings provide capability to determine the functional areas that will be scanned.  They are as follows:
 
 • Memory Objects: Memory which has been allocated by operating system processes, drivers, and other applications.  It is
 
 important to note that threats detected during scans are still considered threats if they have an active component in
 
 memory.  As an extra measure of safety, memory objects should be scanned.
 
 • Startup and Registry Objects: Executable files and/or modifications which are initiated at computer startup, as well as
 
 registry–based configuration changes that can alter startup behavior.
 
 • Archives: If this setting is checked, archive files (ZIP, 7Z, RAR, CAB and MSI) will be scanned up to two levels  deep.
 
 Encrypted (password–protected) archives cannot be tested.  If left unchecked, archive files will be ignored.
 
 • Rootkits: These are files stored on your computer's local disk drives which are invisible to the operating system.  These
 
 files may also influence system behavior.
 
Potentially Unwanted Programs/Modifications
 
These settings allow the user to choose how Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) and Potentially Unwanted Modifications
 
(PUMs) will be treated if they are detected.
 
Folders to be Scanned
 
This setting allows the user to include or exclude directories, subdirectories, and individual files from scans.  It utilizes a Windows
 
Explorer–like presentation model.  In the screenshot shown above, every directory except Desktop is selected for a custom scan.
 
You may scan parent directories separately from child directories based on individual selections.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 13
 
Hyper Scan
 
This scanning option is only available to users of Malwarebytes Premium and Malwarebytes Premium Trial versions.  This method of
 
scanning is limited to detection of immediate threats.  Areas and methods tested include:
 
 • Memory Objects: Memory which has been allocated by operating system processes, drivers, and other applications.
 
 • Startup Objects: Executable files and/or modifications which will be initiated at computer startup.
 
While a Hyper Scan will clean any threats which have been detected, we strongly recommend that a Threat Scan be performed if
 
a Hyper Scan has detected threats.
 
Scan Schedule
 
This tab allows users of the Premium and Premium Trial versions to add, edit and remove scheduled scans to be executed by
 
Malwarebytes.  This feature is not available to users of the Free version.  A screenshot of this tab is shown below.
 
One scheduled scan is defined when Malwarebytes is installed.  Premium and Premium Trial users are free to modify or delete scans
 
at will, while Free users are provided with a single monthly scheduled scan.  Please note that if the initial task is deleted without a
 
replacement task being defined, your Malwarebytes program will not deliver the positive results that you expect.  The same
 
methods are used here to add a new task as well as to edit an existing task, so let's Add a new task in Basic mode.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 14
 
Basic Mode
 
A screenshot of the basic Add Schedule screen is shown here.
 
 You can choose the
 
 specific task to be
 
 added on the left side of
 
 the screen, in the
 
 Scheduled Task area.
 
 You may choose from
 
 the following tasks:
 
 • Threat Scan
 
 • Custom Scan
 
 • Hyper Scan
 
Scan types have been previously discussed in the Scan section of this guide (pages 11–19).  Please refer to those pages for further
 
information if desired.  The Frequency and Settings section allows you to define the timeframe (Schedule Frequency) that a task
 
will be executed, and how often (Recurrence).  For scans, this translates to:
 
 • Frequency = Hourly, recurrence in range of 1–48 hours
 
 • Frequency = Daily, recurrence in range of 1–60 days
 
 • Frequency = Weekly, recurrence in range of 1–8 weeks
 
 • Frequency = Monthly, fixed setting
 
 • Frequency = Once, fixed
 
 • Frequency = On Reboot, fixed
 
Advanced Mode
 
At the bottom left corner of the Add Schedule window is the Advanced button.  Click that to expand the Add Schedule window to
 
expose several more options.  A screenshot is shown below.
 

In Advanced Mode, we add options which tailor the scan more to your liking.  Let's look a little deeper, beginning with the
 
advanced options for scans.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 15
 
Advanced Scan Options
 
Scheduled Task defines what task (scan/update) is to be added/edited, and when that task should begin – specifying both the date
 
and time.  Schedule Options provides several added capabilities to the basic settings which have already been described.  Here's a
 
rundown on the advanced options.
 
 • Quarantine all threats automatically: This option determines if a newly–detected threat would be automatically
 
 quarantined, or if you would be notified so that you could choose a course of action.  While automatic quarantine may
 
 seem to be the best course of action, it could have negative implications if a false positive was encountered.  A false
 
 positive is the categorization of a legitimate file as a malicious file.  It does rarely occur, and when it does, Malwarebytes
 
 Customer Success will assist you in having the offending file evaluated more fully by our Research group.
 
 • Restart computer when required for threat removal: This is available only if threats are automatically quarantined, and is
 
 not selected by default.  Some threats may require a computer restart to completely eliminate the threat, but we feel it’s
 
 best to notify you at the time, so you may save your work before restarting your computer.  If this were checked, you
 
 could lose work unless you were monitoring the scan in progress.
 
 • Scan for rootkits: This option allows specialized testing for the presence of rootkits.  Due to its nature, it increases the
 
 required time for a scan to execute.  This option is not available for Hyper Scans.
 
 • Scan within archives: This is selected by default.  It allows scanning to go two levels deep within archive files.  If not
 
 selected, the archive will be ignored.  It will also be ignored if it is encrypted.  This option is not available for Hyper Scans.
 
Frequency and Settings was discussed in the previous section (Advanced Mode).  Please refer to that section for more detail.
 
Recovery Options allow you to recover from a missed task (e.g. your computer was off at the time a scan was to take place).  A
 
scheduled task – if missed – will run at its next opportunity as long as it is within the duration specified by the Recover if missed by
 
selector and the Recover missed tasks checkbox is checked.
 
Watching Scan Progress
 
Each scan method requires a different amount of time to complete.  Unless significant changes have occurred on your local disk, a
 
Hyper Scan or Threat Scan should each be rather consistent from scan to scan.   A custom scan time interval may vary widely each
 
time, based on the areas scanned, the number of files involved, and the size and complexity of the files.  The screenshot below is
 
an example of a scan in process.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 16
 
The progress bar shows milestones for each phase of the scan, with each milestone represented by a green or gray symbol.  In this
 
screenshot, some milestones are shown with green checkmarks, indicating that phase of the scan has been completed. Scan
 
Memory is represented by an animation which indicates that this phase of the scan is currently being performed.  The remainder
 
of the tasks are shown as grey hourglasses, and are yet to be started.
 
You may also pause a scan while it is in process by clicking the Pause button.  The scan phase in progress will change to indicate
 
that the scan has been paused.  Click Resume to continue the scan where it left off.  You may also click Cancel at any time to
 
terminate the scan.  Results of the scan will be reported as if the scan ran to completion.
 
Scan Results
 
After a scan has been executed, Scan Results are displayed as shown here.  In this scan, three threats were detected.
 

You may move threats to Quarantine by selecting the threat (using checkboxes to the left of the threat’s name) and clicking
 
Quarantine Selected.  If any threats are not selected to be moved to Quarantine, you will be prompted to Ignore Once, Ignore
 
Always, or Cancel.  Ignore Once will result in the threat once again being reported as a threat during the next scan execution.
 
Ignore Always causes the threat to be added to Exclusions.   A threat which has been added to Exclusions will no longer be reported
 
as a threat unless there is reason to believe that it has been tampered with.  You must provide a disposition for each threat
 
displayed on this screen.
 
Threats which have been moved into Quarantine cannot harm your computer.  They are neutralized as part of the Quarantine
 
process.  Please see Quarantine (page 20) for further information.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 17
 
Scan Summary
 
The final screen to be displayed as part of a scan is the Scan Summary.  It provides summary information about the scan, and allows
 
you to view scan detail on screen, or export scan summary or scan detail to a text file.  A screenshot of the Scan Summary is shown
 
below.  Free and Premium Trial users will see a reminder of the value of a Malwarebytes subscription on this page as well.
 
Clicking the View Report button displays the Scan Report for the scan just completed.  It is shown here as well.
 

When threats are detected during a scan, the user must decide how these threats should be handled.  The following series of
 
screenshots detail this flow.  In the first screenshot, twenty threats have been detected.  By default, all are selected for removal.
 
Please note that the total number of detected threats is shown above the list of threats, as is the number of threats selected for
 
removal.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 18
 
In order to demonstrate the behavior of this screen, we will uncheck some of the threats.  This indicates that only the checked
 
threats are to be removed.  Clicking the Quarantine Selected button results in the screen shown below.
 
Threats that were not selected still require remediation, based on input supplied by the user.  In this case, the choices available are
 
Ignore Once, Ignore Always and Cancel.  Clicking the Ignore Once button temporarily ignores a threat, although it will be shown
 
as a threat on subsequent scans.  Selecting Ignore Always results in the threat being added to the Exclusion List.  It would not be
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 19
 
scanned in the future.  Clicking Cancel keeps you on this screen until you choose how to handle all detected threats.  Once a
 
disposition has been selected for all detected threats, the screen below will be displayed.
 
Although threats have been quarantined, you must restart the computer to assure the threat removal process is complete.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 20
 
Quarantine
 
When executing scans (on–demand or as part of real–time protection), some programs, files or registry keys may have been
 
categorized as threats.  At that time, they were removed from the disk location where they were stored, placed in quarantine, and
 
modified so that they could not pose a threat to your computer.  There may be items which fall into this category, but are not
 
malicious.  It is up to individual users to research and make this determination.  Upon entry to the Quarantine option, you are
 
presented with the screen shown here.
 
Quarantined items are shown in a table format, with pertinent information presented to help you determine what action needs to
 
be taken.  Each item listed has a checkbox in the leftmost column.  Check the checkbox to restore or delete the item.  Please note
 
that the Restore and Delete buttons are greyed out until items are selected.  If you wish to apply the same action to all quarantined
 
items, select the checkbox in the table header and click Restore or Delete.
 
Please be aware that quarantined items which are not deleted or restored will continue to be visible here until action is taken.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 21
 
Reports
 
The Reports Pane displays a list of scans and real–time protection detections, in reverse chronological order.  A Protection Event that
 
starts with the word Scan is a report summarizing the specified scan.  All other reports listed on this screen are detail pertaining to
 
detections made by real–time protection.  A screenshot is shown here.
 
Selected reports may be viewed on screen, or exported to a text file for later viewing.  Opening a report will display a summary of
 
the event.  You can click the Advanced tab to view more information about the event. Details displayed for Protection Events will
 
be relevant to the type of event shown.  Please note that only manual (on demand) scans are available for users of the free version
 
of Malwarebytes.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 22
 
The Scan Report may appear in two different forms.  If one or more threats were detected during a scan, the report will appear as:
 

Please note that the bottom portion of the report shows the threats detected during the scan.  It is scrollable when required.  The
 
top portion of the report contains a summary of the scan.  You can click the Advanced button to view more details, as shown here:
 

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 23
 
Viewing or Deleting Logs
 
You may view any log file by clicking the log to select it, then clicking the View Report button.  As mentioned previously, there are
 
several output options for Protection Logs.  To delete logs, click the checkbox corresponding to those logs you wish to delete, then
 
click the Delete button.  Please bear in mind that computers which have significant threat activity will also have larger logs.  You
 
should periodically check how much disk space is being used for logs, so that logs do not impact normal operation of your
 
computer.
 
Please note that an Export button is shown at the bottom left corner of this screen.  This allows you to make a copy of the log for
 
use by other programs.  You may export to your clipboard or to a text (TXT) file.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 24
 
Settings
 
The Settings screen allows the user to change all Malwarebytes operational settings.  We have grouped settings by the
 
areas/functions which they control into tabs to maintain a clean user interface.  When you select any tab, you will see the Detail
 
Pane change to reflect the tab which you selected.  At the same time, the tab itself is highlighted.
 
Before we dig in to each of the tabs, a brief description of each is in order.
 
 • Application Settings: Settings that affect Malwarebytes, as well as how it coexists with Windows.
 
 • Protection Settings: How Malwarebytes should protect you during scans and (for Premium/Trial mode users only) Real–
 
 Time Protection.
 
 • Scan Schedule: When Malwarebytes should execute scans and check for protection updates.  This setting is functional
 
 only for users of Premium/Trial mode.
 
 • Exclusions: Items which will be excluded from testing which detects malware, as well as websites which are categorized
 
 as malicious but specifically approved by the user.
 
 • My Account: Information pertaining to the status of your subscription.
 
 • About: Version numbers corresponding to Malwarebytes as a whole, and for various components of the program which
 
 may be updated individually.  Malwarebytes company resources are also listed on this page.
 
When Settings is selected, the Application tab is always selected.  If you navigate away from Settings – to Dashboard, Scan,
 
Quarantine or Reports – you will always return to the Application tab of Settings when you click on Settings.
 
Now, let's take a look at Application Settings!
 
Application Settings
 
This is the entry screen you will see when you click on Settings in the Menu Pane.  It controls how Malwarebytes interacts with
 
many aspects of your computer’s operating system.  A screenshot is shown below.
 
The scroll bar at the right of this screen indicates there are many more options available on this screen than what appear here.  We
 
will now cover each of them in order.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 25
 
Application Updates
 
Malwarebytes may have updates available for individual program components, or for the full program.  We provide two toggle
 
switches which allow you to choose whether either or both upgrade modes can be integrated into your copy of Malwarebytes
 
when they are available.  Click Install Application Updates to check for available program updates or upgrades.  You can choose if
 
you upgrade, and when.  Upgrades only happen with your consent.
 
Notifications
 
Notifications regarding scans, real time protection, updates and subscriptions occur in windows at the lower right corner of your
 
screen, outside of the Malwarebytes interface.  You may enable or disable these notifications.  Most notifications are enabled by
 
default, while a few can be disabled.  Please note that some non–critical information may not be visible if you disable notifications.
 
Disabled notifications do not leave the user at risk at any time. The following notifications may be disabled.  Please refer to
 
Appendix A (Notification Window Examples) at the end of this guide for further information.
 
 • Malicious Website Blocked
 
 • Malware Detected (auto–quarantine)
 
 • Non–Malware Detected (auto–quarantine)
 
Some users intentionally turn off one or more components of real–time protection.  Users may now disable notifications that
 
components have been turned off.  Please note that as a result of this setting, users will be unable to receive notifications regarding
 
real–time protection failures in the event of program malfunction.
 
Impact of Scans on System
 
Most users schedule scans to occur during times when their computer is typically idle.  Execution of a manual scan may be
 
performed as a matter of convenience, or while other tasks are being executed.  The performance of lower–powered computers
 
may be affected by execution of the Malwarebytes scan.  This setting allows the user to determine the priority of the scan to be
 
performed.  Lower scan priority will require more time to execute while impacting other operations to a lesser degree.  High priority
 
allows the scan to be executed at the maximum speed which the computer allows, but may affect other tasks.
 
Windows Context Menus
 
Malwarebytes has the capability to launch a Threat Scan upon one or more individual files or directories from within Windows
 
Explorer by using the context menu that becomes available when the files/directories are right–clicked.  This setting allows that
 
capability to be turned on or off.  The default setting is On.
 
Display Language
 
This setting determines the language used throughout.  This is pre–set, based on the language used during program installation.
 
It can be modified at will.
 
Event Log Data
 
This setting provides additional information regarding program actions which are beyond typical needs of the user.  Should you
 
encounter a technical issue with Malwarebytes, our Customer Success engineers may request that you enable this setting to
 
provide additional troubleshooting information.  Once troubleshooting is complete, please remember to turn this setting off to
 
prevent unnecessary disk usage.  The default setting is Off.
 
Proxy Server
 
This determines whether Internet connections will use a proxy server.  This is more often used on a corporate network.  It has two
 
primary purposes.  The first is to funnel communications to and from the outside world through a single connection point, thus
 
assuring anonymity of all computers on the internal network.  The second purpose is to cache content.  This means that external
 
content which had recently been downloaded is saved locally for some period of time, and subsequent requests by that user (or
 
others) could use the recently–saved data.  This conserves significant bandwidth, resulting in lower operating costs.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 26
 
 By default, Malwarebytes does not use a proxy.  If configured to
 
 do so, the bottom panel will change to provide configuration
 
 options as shown in the screenshot shown here.
 
 You can now specify the IP address or name of a proxy server,
 
 as well as the appropriate port number.  If a proxy is in use, the
 
 name and port number must be specified by the person who
 
 controls access to the proxy server.  He will also be able to tell
 
 you whether authentication is required to use the server, and if
 
 so, provide a user name and password which have been
 
 assigned to you.
 
User Access
 
This slider allows users of Malwarebytes Premium and Malwarebytes Premium Trial versions to restrict access to various features
 
and functions in Malwarebytes with password protection.  The Edit User Access button is only visible when the slider is in the On
 
position, allowing the user to define sections of the program which require a password to access.
 

When the Edit User Access button is clicked, a new window opens directly above the Malwarebytes program screen to restrict
 
access to selected areas of the program only to those users who possess the password.  The password is also defined on this screen.
 
WARNING: This password is not recoverable.  If you lose your password, you will have to reinstall Malwarebytes to access restricted
 
features.
 

As shown above, the Reports tab has been placed under password control.  This also causes User Access to be placed under
 
password control.  This prevents unauthorized users from gaining access to restricted areas.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 27
 
 When attempting to gain access to a
 
 restricted area, you will be required to enter
 
 a password (as shown here).
 

 If an incorrect password is entered, or if a
 
 null password is used, this error message
 
 will be displayed.
 

If this feature has been enabled and is subsequently disabled, any restrictions which have been defined are cancelled.  This feature
 
is not available to users of the Free version.  Currently, only one policy may be in effect at any given time.
 
Windows Action Center
 
You may have noticed an icon in your system tray with a red X superimposed over a white flag. That is a status indicator for the
 
Windows Action Center, which tells you when your computer has a security issue that needs your attention. Malwarebytes Premium
 
or Malwarebytes Premium Trial can now be registered as a security solution on your computer.  There are three settings available,
 
which will be abbreviated here for easier reading.  Brief descriptions for the meaning of each setting are also provided.
 
 • Let Malwarebytes choose whether to register: Malwarebytes will determine whether it should be registered in Action
 
 Center. The program will not register when Microsoft Security Essentials is in use on a Windows 7 or older operating
 
 system. It will also not register when Windows Defender is used on a Windows 8 or newer OS.
 
 • Always register Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes program status will always appear in Action Center.
 
 • Never register Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes program status will never appear in Action Center.
 
Beta Application Updates
 
Some Malwarebytes users want to try the newest features as soon as they are available, while some prefer to wait until the product
 
is released.  We have added this program setting so that if you want the latest and greatest immediately, we can deliver it to you
 
automatically.  When you enable this setting, you will see the following dialog box.
 

Usage and Threat Statistics
 
If you check this box, you will be sending us information to help us do our jobs.  We like to know what countries Malwarebytes is
 
being used in, and the breakdown of Premium, Premium Trial, and Free versions.  Our Research organization likes to keep track of
 
what malware we are detecting and how often.  We learn that from what you send us, and helps us to serve you more effectively.
 
We hope that's fine with you as well.  For a full list of information that is collected, please see the Malwarebytes Privacy Policy, at:
 
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 28
 
Protection
 
Most settings which control how Malwarebytes protects your computer are located on the Protection tab.   Settings are grouped
 
by category.  A screenshot is shown below, along with descriptions of all settings available on this tab.
 
Real–Time Protection
 
Malwarebytes offers four different types of real–time protection.  These features are available only to users of the Premium and
 
Premium Trial modes.  It is important to note that Premium Trial users who do not convert to a Premium subscription will lose all
 
real–time protection features at the end of their trial.
 
Web Protection protects Premium/Trial users by blocking access to/from Internet addresses which are known or suspected of
 
engaging in malicious activity.  This feature does not treat different protocols differently.  It does not distinguish between your
 
favorite game being served on one port and a potential malware source being served on another.  Should you choose to disable
 
this feature, you could inadvertently compromise your computer's safety.  Please note that this option is disabled if you are using
 
the Free version.
 
Exploit Protection uses multiple protection layers to guard against attempted exploits of vulnerabilities in legitimate applications.
 
When applications are launched by the user, exploit protection is also launched as a shield.  This protection will often detect and
 
neutralize attacks that go undetected by other security applications.  It is on by default for Premium/Premium Trial users.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 29
 

Many popular applications have been pre–configured for shielding.  A screenshot is shown above.  To change the status of any
 
application, either use the Protection slider, or double click either the Application or File Name.  Premium/Premium Trial users may
 
add protection for other applications, and edit specifications for any defined shield.  The Edit screen is shown here.
 

You may specify an Application name which is easily recognizable, and the Application file name.  You can also browse for the file.
 
Select a Program type which most closely resembles the purpose of the application.  If you are unsure, select Other.
 
The same screen is used to edit existing entries.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 30
 
In addition, Premium/Premium Trial users can modify advanced exploit protection settings.  Several advanced settings are spread
 
across four tabs, depending on the classification of protection they provide.  One tab is shown here as an example.
 
Each advanced setting is available for up to six different application groups, the groups representing the method by which threats
 
will attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in applications of that type.  Protection may be turned on (checked), off (unchecked), or is
 
not applicable for that group of applications (greyed out).  While these settings provide very specific protection, they should only
 
be changed when requested by a Malwarebytes Customer Success specialist.  Incorrect settings may result in impaired protection.
 
Malware Protection may be turned on or off as needed by Premium/Premium Trial users.  It is on by default.  This feature protects
 
against malware present in code/files that try to execute on your computer.  These files may have been downloaded, imported
 
from a USB drive, or received as an email attachment.  While we do not recommend disabling this protection mechanism, there
 
may be times when it needs to be done to troubleshoot compatibility issues that arise with anti–virus updates or computer startup
 
problems.  If either situation does occur, start your computer in Safe Mode, disable Malware Protection, isolate and correct the
 
issue, then turn Malware Protection back on.  Please note that this option is disabled if you are using the Free version.
 
Ransomware Protection provides Premium/Premium Trial users protection against the threat of ransomware.  This protection is
 
not available for users of Windows XP or Windows Vista.  While all other protection features may provide some degree of protection
 
against ransomware, well–crafted ransomware may go undetected until it attempts to initiate its attack.  As many computer users
 
have found, there is little or no remedy available after the fact.  We strongly recommend that ransomware protection be turned
 
on at all times.  It is on by default.  Please note that this option is disabled if you are using the Free version.
 
Scan Options
 
Scan for rootkits utilizes a specific set of rules and tests to determine if a rootkit is present on your computer.  For readers who are
 
unfamiliar with this term, an explanation may be handy.  A rootkit is malicious software that can be placed on a computer which
 
has the ability to modify operating system files in a manner that hides its presence.  Malware detection methods that rely on hooks
 
to the operating system for detection and analysis would prove ineffective if the hooks had been purposely manipulated by
 
malware.  Our testing method is more intensive and more effective, but including rootkit scans as part of your overall scan strategy
 
increases the time required to perform a scan.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 31
 
When Scan within archives is enabled, Malwarebytes will scan two levels deep within archive (ZIP, RAR, 7Z, CAB and MSI) files.  If
 
this option is disabled, the archive is excluded from scanning.  Please note that encrypted archives cannot be fully tested.
 
We have introduced a new signature–less detection technology which takes advantage of machine learning to supplement existing
 
detection methods.
 
Potential Threats
 
In addition to malicious software detection and elimination, Malwarebytes also detects and acts upon two classes of non–malware.
 
These are Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP's) and Potentially Unwanted Modifications (PUM's).  In many cases, PUP's appear
 
in the form of toolbars and other application software which are installed on your computer as part of a bundle.  You may have
 
asked for one application, and it came with a second application that was not mentioned, or was mentioned, but you did not
 
uncheck the checkbox next to it to prevent it from being installed at the same time.  You may also want and use the PUP.  We do
 
not judge the merit of the program or its usability.  We do offer a method of removing it if you choose to.
 
PUM's are a bit different.  These are modifications that are typically related to the Windows registry.  As a user, you will generally
 
not be making changes to the registry that would qualify as a PUM, though the possibility does exist.  Because it does, we allow
 
you to define your own rules when it comes to how they are treated.
 
With regard to both types of modifications, we provide three handling methods.  These are:
 
 • Ignore detections: Malwarebytes will not act on detection, nor will you be alerted.
 
 • Warn user: You will be alerted to the detection.  You may choose to ignore it, create an exclusion, or treat it as malware.
 
 • Always detect PUPs/PUMs (recommended): The detection will be treated as malware, and corrective actions will occur.
 
While PUP's and PUM's are both handled in the same manner, each is handled according to separate guidelines which you specify.
 
Updates
 
Users of Malwarebytes Premium and Malwarebytes Premium Trial have the ability to automatically check for protection updates,
 
and to specify when those checks will be performed.  The date range is adjustable between fifteen (15) minutes and fourteen (14)
 
days, the increment depending on the range (minutes/hours/days).  We recommend that you do not allow the rules database to
 
become dated, as much damage can be caused by zero–day infections – those threats that are too new to be adequately protected
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 32
 
against by anti–virus software.  The default for this feature is on.  You may also have Malwarebytes display a notification in the
 
corner of your screen if protection updates are more than 24 hours old.
 
Startup Options
 
These settings define how Malwarebytes behaves when your computer starts.  You may launch several applications at startup, and
 
they may initiate processes which require Malwarebytes launch timing to be adjusted.  Let's look at each setting in detail.
 
 • Start Malwarebytes at Windows startup:  If this setting is unchecked, Malwarebytes will not start with Windows.  No real–
 
 time protection layers will start when Windows starts, though they may still be started manually by launching
 
 Malwarebytes.
 
 • Delay Real–Time Protection when Malwarebytes starts:  There may be times when the startup of system services used by
 
 Malwarebytes conflicts with services required by other applications at boot time.  When this is the case, turn this setting
 
 on.  You may also adjust the delay timing.  You will need to experiment with the specific delay setting necessary to
 
 compensate for any conflicts that are noted.  When required, this must be done on a case–by–case basis.  The delay setting
 
 is adjustable from 15–180 seconds, in increments of 15 seconds.
 
 • Enable self–protection module:  This setting controls whether Malwarebytes creates a safe zone to prevent malicious
 
 manipulation of the program and its components.  Checking this box introduces a one–time delay as the self–protection
 
 module is enabled.  While not a negative, the delay may be considered undesirable by some users.  When unchecked,
 
 the "early start" option which follows is disabled.
 
 • Enable self–protection module early start:  When self–protection is enabled, you may choose to enable or disable this
 
 option.  When enabled, the self–protection module will become enabled earlier in the computer's boot process –
 
 essentially changing the order of services and drivers associated with your computer's startup.
 
Automatic Quarantine
 
Users of Malwarebytes Premium and Malwarebytes Premium Trial may specify whether malware will be automatically quarantined
 
when it is detected.  The default setting is on.  If the users decline to automatically quarantine malware, a notification will display
 
in the lower right corner of the screen for each detection, and the user must specify whether the file is to be ignored once, ignored
 
always (added to Exclusions) or quarantined.
 
Scan Schedule
 
You may also adjust Scan Schedules here as part of program settings.  This aspect of program settings has already been covered
 
on pages 11–19.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 33
 
Exclusions
 
This tab allows additions to, or deletions from a list of items to be excluded from scans.  The list may include files, folders, websites,
 
applications which connect to the Internet, or previously detected exploits.  A screenshot is shown below.
 
Add Exclusion
 
Exclusions are exempt from scanning and from real–time protection.  This may include files, folders, web sites, applications and
 
safe programs which have been identified as exploits.  Clicking Add Exclusion launches the Add Exclusion Wizard, as shown below.
 

Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 34
 
You may then add items – one at a time – to the list of exclusions.  Each item type is defined by criteria as follows:
 
 • File or folder: Its location on the file system, and whether it should be excluded from malware and ransomware, only
 
 malware or only ransomware.  While you may have your own reasons for excluding files or folders from scans, the primary
 
 reason for doing so is to prevent potential conflicts with anti–virus software. Malwarebytes works well alongside most
 
 anti–virus software, but anti–virus updates by some vendors may occasionally be flagged as a threat.  For this reason, we
 
 offer the provision for you to exclude certain disk content from scanning.  This is commonly offered by anti–virus vendors
 
 as well.
 
 NOTES:
 
 ● Clicking Select Folder… selects only folders, which by default will also exclude any files within those folders,
 
 as well as subfolders.
 
 ● Clicking Select Files… selects individual files for exclusion.  The status of the folder is unchanged.
 
 • Website: Enter the Domain or IP Address to specify the web address.  When adding a domain manually, please add it
 
 both with and without the "www." prefix.  Depending on several external factors, the domain may still be blocked if only
 
 one variation is entered.  Also, domain exclusions are only functional on Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Windows 7,
 
 Windows 8.x and Windows 10.  Please note: Exclusions can also be added by clicking the link in the notification message
 
 when the website is blocked by Malwarebytes Website Protection.
 
 • Application that connects to the Internet: Specify the name of the application.  This is most applicable if the detection is
 
 a false positive (legitimate application with some similar characteristics to malware).
 
 • Previously Detected Exploit: Specify the MD5 hash of the exploit.  This is most applicable if the detection is a false positive
 
 (legitimate application with some similar characteristics to malware).  The hash guarantees uniqueness of the file in
 
 question.
 
My Account
 
Here, you can click the Go to My Account button to obtain status of all of your subscriptions, and change preferences related to
 
your account.  You can also deactivate your license – useful when moving your Malwarebytes program to a new computer – or
 
change license key.  A screenshot is shown below.
 
Malwarebytes for Windows User Guide 35
 
All of the information shown here is self–explanatory.  A set of option buttons are available at the bottom of the screen.  The options
 
vary depend on the mode of the program.  Buttons for the three program modes are shown below.

When Malwarebytes was installed, Premium Trial mode was set automatically (if you were eligible for a trial).  There may be

If you click the button Change License Key (Premium mode) or I Already Have a License (Premium Trial or Free mode), you will see
 
the following screen superimposed over the Malwarebytes interface.
 
 Follow screen instructions to enter your license

About
 
This tab tells you more about Malwarebytes, and what resources are available to you should you need technical assistance.  The
 
upper panel contains Version Information.  We have split up the program into software components.  If you have configured the
 
program to provide program updates, it is easier and faster for us to provide the newest version to you by updating the
 
components that have changed, rather than updating the entire program.  It also benefits you if you need technical support,
 
because the versions of each component may influence the direction that our Customer Success engineers take when
 
troubleshooting an issue.
 
The Resources section provides contact addresses (URLs) which may assist you for sales, support, and educational purposes.  In
 
addition, you can view the third–party notices (open source software which we use in our products) as well as a link to our End User
 
Licensing Agreement (EULA).

Exactly, and for those who work with desktop computers turning off the screen certainly is an option, but using Screen Shade which, by the way, is the name of the feature (screen curtain is what Apple calls it) is much easier.

Also, David, as you found out the trick is not to press Jaws Key+F11 even if you somehow simultaneously press the spacebar as well but to press Jaws Key+Spacebar first and then follow with the other key, F11 in this case (Printscreen also works). This is called a “layered keystroke” in Jaws and there are a bunch of these which are very useful, here just a few:

 

Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by:

A = text analyser

C = clipboard text viewer.

H = Jaws speech history (super useful)

J = Search for Jaws commands

L = Lock the keyboard

O = Jaws OCR, you need to follow the ‘O” with other letters like “s” for OCR current screen, “w” OCR current Windows etc.

R = Research It

S = Speech on demand/Mute

Z = Default user mode (this uses only Jaws default settings)

 

Most of these keystrokes are toggles, e.g. Jaws Key+Spacebar and L will lock the keyboard, pressing the same key  combination again will unlock it.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi, Dave. Closing the lid of the laptop won’t work if you’re using the laptop keyboard to work. This curtain is to prevent others from seeing what you’re working on. Also, my Del laptop’s onboard screen cannot be turned off, and lowering the brightness doesn’t dim it sufficiently for no one to see it.

Hi,

If you are using desktop layout:

Insert + Spacebar (insert on the numeric keypad is the Jaws key when the numlock key is turned off)

Then F11

This will turn the screen curtain on if it is off and off if it is on.

Hope that helps.

Hello Lee Anne. I assume that you keep your rental income and expenses in a separate account. If you do this, you can manage the account in Money Talks. You can export your Quicken data from Quicken to a .csv file. Then import them to Money Talks. This will track your income, expenses and balance. I do this for my business. Excel can also help.

I’m switching over to Money Talks, too.  I have the demo downloaded and it looks promising.  I used Quicken for nearly 20 years and am just tired of the challenges of it.  I also had to rely on remaining vision, especially for reporting.  Unless you wanted to use their canned reports, which did not always meet my needs for custom date ranges and so on, the report manager was really frustrating to work with.

My company is going to be upgrading from Office 2010 to Office 365.  For those who have made that jump, how different of an experience is Office 365?  I am a heavy user of Outlook, Excel and Word and an occasional user of PowerPoint.

The easiest way for me is to locate the file I want to send hit the space bar, then the context key, send to, email recipient, and follow the prompts

Hi Cathy Ann,

 

I think the paste method works in Windows Mail as well, so you don’t need all those keystrokes.

 

All the best

When in a new message, do the following:

 

1. Press ALT to enter command mode, this places you in the ribbon

2. press RIGHT ARROW until focus is on the ”Insert” ribbon

3. Press DOWN ARROW to locate “Files”

4. Press ENTER. This opens the “Open File” dialog through which you can select and attach a file.

Help! How do I add an attachment to an email I’m sending someone? The directions Microsoft gives in the tutorial doesn’t work. Any ideas? Key strokes with JAWS?

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

 

No need to do that, simply copy a file to the clipboard, and paste it into the message.  It will be an added attachment.

 

Besides, she wasn’t using Outlook, she was using Windows Mail, see the subject line.

 

All the best

Hi:

 

If you are using outlook 2016 do the following

 

In outlook in the message press altn

2  tab over until you here insert atachments.

 

The alt n command is the insert command. When you open the attachments dialog box you can tab until you find your computer folders and drives.

Locate the file that you want to send and press the spacebar  tab to the left and you should find an insert button.

 

If you want to send more than one file at a time.

 

Open the attachments dialog box and hold down the control key now you can select files with the spacebar then click insert.

 

I will be checking my email through the evening if you need more help I will be happy to help you My name is Nino.

 

Have a good evening.

Does anybody know if there is a way to tell if a screen reader like Jaws  is accessing a web page?

 

I know you can use Alt tags to describe images on the page I was not sure if with a browser if it could detect a screen reader.

 

Thanks and have a good day.

If you use the links list and want to activate the link and not just move to it then all you have to do after you find the link in the list is to press enter.
There is no need to tab twice to the Activate Link button and then press enter since the Activate Link button is the default button which gets activate by pressing enter.
You can check which is the default button in a dialogue just as the links list by pressing Jaws Key+E.

you can try using the links list feature in JAWS (insert+f7), find that link, tabbing twice and entering on the activate button.
you can also try pressing the application key or shift+f10 and entering on the open command, if there is an open command listed.

Hi Everyone,

I am facing the following problem: when I open some webpages in Firefox and press enter on a particular link, a different link gets clicked instead. I am using JAWS 16 with firefox 55.0.3.

For instance, please see this link:
https://www.ielts.org/book-a-test/special-requirements
When I press enter on 'visual difficulties' the link that gets clicked is 'local test centre'. What to do about this?

Best,
Rahul

Hi,

What I am trying to do is track expenditures for rental property. The IRS can be so particular with this sort of thing! I don't have much useable vision left so a screen magnifier is not a great solution for me. I was thinking Quicken's register where I could do debits/credits would work fine.

Thoughts? Thanks!
