I believe the browser combobox only allows 1 browser at a time.  It doesn't give multiple choice, per say.

Try the following:

1. Open MS Edge and press, Alt + f, to open Settings, down arrow to, Favorites, and press enter.

 

2. Down arrow to, Import, and press enter.

 

3. Now you should be on a collapsed button menu that you press enter on to open and choose what browser you want to import from.

 

4. After you choose the browser tab through and check or uncheck what you want imported.

 

5. Press enter on the, Import, button

Hi Dave,

Yes, i am on the last version of jaws 2018 which is all i am entitled to.
I did use the jaws import wizard to copy my shared settings.
I have a 90 day ilm key just to try out jaws 2020.
Jaws2020 and jaws2018 are now both authorized using the same 90 day key for
some reason.
With regards to settings etc, i uninstalled both, reinstalled both, removed
both again with all settings and shared components, reinstalled jaws2020,
but still the problem exists.
One peculiar thing though, i started up my computer yesterday from a
shutdown, and everything with jaws2020 worked fine.
I did the exact same thing just now, and the problem came back.
I am convinced at this stage, that it does have something to do with the new
"grace period" authorization function introduced in jaws 2019.
I think it is loading before it knows for certain whether or not you have a
valid key. Sometimes the check works, and sometimes it doesn't and jaws half
loads with no actual jaws window.
I also think, that it might have something to do with the ilm key, as this
is a very old type of authorization for a pc, as against the internet
activation method. However, i am not paying for an upgrade until i can get a
definite sort-out for this problem. As i said in another post, there is
always nvda, but i would rather stay with jaws.

Regards,

Pat

Question 1: With JAWS 18, are you on the last upgrade for your current SMA?
Which is why you are using the temporary license for JAWS 2020, so you can
try its new and upgraded features?

Question 2: did you use the JAWS function, which copies the settings you set

in JAWS 18 to JAWS 2020?

All apps in startup are turned off, apart from the necessary ones such

There is an application file for jaws set to "on". I set this to "off"

I wasn't aware of this feature, but you could be right. Now that i
think
of
it, it started right after i installed the temporary authorization
(90
days)
that i was given to try it out.
That could explain why 2018 works and 2020 doesn't. If it checks
while windows is loading, it could be a problem. When i stop and
restart it, it
is
fine, but then windows is fully up at that time.
Any way to disable/check/change this or something?

might that be the JAWS feature touted as new in either 2019 or 2020,
saying
that JAWS will speak before checking your authorization, so you don't
have to wait so long to hear that it is running. However, it doesn't
do
anything
till it makes internal checks and decides what context you are
running in.
So in my opinion it is a totally useless change which FS calls an

JAWS 2019 Features




Faster JAWS Startup with Grace Period Authorization

JAWS 2019 introduces a new concept to help ease the delay in response when JAWS first launches and looks for authorization. In prior versions, JAWS would not fully start until proper authorization was found. Since Authorization can include searching for a network license, the amount of time before JAWS started speaking could be significant. While it is not possible to speed up this period directly, the authorization process will now be completed simultaneously to startup. As JAWS searches for authorization, it enters a new "grace period" authorization state which provides limited functionality, similar to what is available on the logon screen, so you can use speech and braille while authorization discovery takes place. Once the authorization check has finished, JAWS then uses the correct feature set based on the license.
