Hi Listers,

 

Now that I have Windows 10 and JAWS 2020, I can’t figure out how to create a new folder. It used to be really easy, but I can’t do it the way I used to. Please help.

 

Thanks for any help.

Don,

hit control +alt +delete key (above arrow keys)
arrow down to device manager and hit enter
arrow down until you hear programs currently running. Microsoft Word for
example.
If this is what is not being able to close, once you hear the MS Word, hit
tab key until you hear close program and hit enter. It may take a few
attempts hitting the close program button and may also take a few seconds to
close the program. If other programs are needing closed, shift tab back to
the list and arrow up or down until you hear the next program needing
closed. again hit tab until you hear close program and hit enter. Repeat as
needed...

Yesterday a friend helped me fill in the province of British Columbia's
speculation tax form online. He ran into a snag, so started again with a
fresh format and we sent the completed form off. I could not close the
first form but shut down the computer. I don't know if it's related, but
since then I cannot close Word files or emails. I can open and read them
and move them, but I can't close them. If I'm in my email list, I can use
Alt tab to get out of an open email, then delete or move it, but the open
email is still there. I assume that somehow I've frozen the Alt F4
function. My only resort is to shut down the computer. When I start it
up again, emails I've deleted both from In and Deleted folders reappear.
Any thoughts?

I'm using Windows 10 and JAWS 17, though I plan to purchase JAWS 2020 in a
few weeks.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hi David,

 

Thanks. I used to hit control+ N. And that doesn’t work any more. Didn’t know about control + shift + N.

Hi.

The quickest way to create a new folder is to first open the folder that you want the folder to be created in. In other words, if you want to create a subfolder in your Documents folder open the Documents folder. Next, press shift-ctrl-N. You will be in an edit field. Type the name of the folder that you want to create, followed by the enter key.

Narrator is the built-in screen reader in Windows.
In Windows 10, it is pretty good as a backup when Jaws gets flakey.
Press Control+WindowsKey+Enter to start or stop Narrator.
It usually defaults to the Windows voice David.
So, you could unload Jaws and load Narrator to test the keystroke.

I was asking because some keyboards have a switch or button which
locks the function keys and yet others like the Logitech K780 require
you to press also the FN key along with any other key combination,
e.g. without Logitech Options software installed where you can tell
the function keys to behave normally, you would have to press FN + Alt + F4.
Another question I would have is whether this is on a laptop or a desktop?
If it's on a laptop, does Alt + F4 work if you use the laptop's keyboard?
Lastly, are other function key shortcuts working, e.g. Jaws Key + F7
to pull up a list of links on a website or even just Jaws Key + F10
for a list of open applications or Jaws Key + F11 to speak the time?

Don,

hit control +alt +delete key (above arrow keys) arrow down to device manager
and hit enter arrow down until you hear programs currently running.
Microsoft Word for example.
If this is what is not being able to close, once you hear the MS Word, hit
tab key until you hear close program and hit enter. It may take a few
attempts hitting the close program button and may also take a few seconds to
close the program. If other programs are needing closed, shift tab back to
the list and arrow up or down until you hear the next program needing
closed. again hit tab until you hear close program and hit enter. Repeat as
needed...

Subject: Alt F4 Frozen

Yesterday a friend helped me fill in the province of British
Columbia's speculation tax form online. He ran into a snag, so
started again with a fresh format and we sent the completed form off.
I could not close the first form but shut down the computer. I don't
know if it's related, but since then I cannot close Word files or
emails. I can open and read them and move them, but I can't close
them. If I'm in my email list, I can use
Alt tab to get out of an open email, then delete or move it, but the
open email is still there. I assume that somehow I've frozen the Alt
F4 function. My only resort is to shut down the computer. When I
start it up again, emails I've deleted both from In and Deleted folders
reappear.
Any thoughts?

I'm using Windows 10 and JAWS 17, though I plan to purchase JAWS 2020
in a
few weeks.

I'd appreciate any help.

I was asking because some keyboards have a switch or button which locks the function keys and yet others like the Logitech K780 require you to press also the FN key along with any other key combination, e.g. without Logitech Options software installed where you can tell the function keys to behave normally, you would have to press FN + Alt + F4.
Another question I would have is whether this is on a laptop or a desktop? If it's on a laptop, does Alt + F4 work if you use the laptop's keyboard?
Lastly, are other function key shortcuts working, e.g. Jaws Key + F7 to pull up a list of links on a website or even just Jaws Key + F10 for a list of open applications or Jaws Key + F11 to speak the time?

For the task manager, press control+alt+delete and then press alt+t.
You hopefully will land on the processes tab.
Then, you can arrow down through the running applications/processes.
If you know one is misbehaving, press alt+e or tab to end process and press enter, then enter again and it should kill that process.
