                Good afternoon listers; insert plus f4 unloads jaws, alt plus control plus jay restarts him.  I do not understand anything about command lines and such, but just use the two key strokes I mentioned above and you will be good to go.

Why use such a complicate method to do something one can do with the single keystroke, Jaws Key + F4.

Hi,

You can kill JAWS by executing the taskkill command:

taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f

 

The problem with this approach is that you will also need to kill all of JAWS' child processes. When I have some time I'll go through task manager and see all of the different processes that JAWS has. You would use taskkill to kill them off one by one before restarting JAWS.

 

You also need to be running an elevated command prompt to execute taskkill.

 

If done successfully, here is what the output looks like:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]
(c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f
SUCCESS: The process "jfw.exe" with PID 8856 has been terminated.

Hi Dean,

My objective is to make Jaws restart seemlessly so that users are not forced to deal with keystrokes. Some of my cleints get nervous and lose self-trust when its time to shutdown jaws and restart it manually.

Since this process is used when installing Jaws (automatically restart when install is complete), i thought there was a command line that could do the job.

Hi.

It sometimes works when JAWS is frozen. Sometimes JAWS is too far gone to even recognise the keystroke.

I wish Vivaldi was a little cleaner with JAWS as it seems so nice and I love how customisable it is, but yeah. Truth is I’ve barely run it since I installed the thing. Still vaguely hoping for improvements, though.

Don't give up on IE yet. It will occasionally  work when others wont do what you need them too. The truth is you need multiple browsers because each will work in a situation where the others wont. the new Chromium based Edge is pretty good. I use it as my default browser and use IE and Firefox on occasion. There will never be a single work on every webpage browser for us.

Vivaldi is not nearly as easy to use as advertised and I haven't tried water fox or Brave but I will be after reading this.

Hi Dean,

My objective is to make Jaws restart seemlessly so that users are not forced to deal with keystrokes. Some of my cleints get nervous and lose self-trust when its time to shutdown jaws and restart it manually.

Since this process is used when installing Jaws (automatically restart when install is complete), i thought there was a command line that could do the job.

Ok, but I'm 90% sure from reading past messages that your friend doesn't need Office Email, and Microsoft is probably upselling at this point.

 

If your friend is running Windows 10, have them ask the disability support line to stop playing with Office and just set up Windows Mail for them. It will be far, far easier for your friend and much less complicated. Outlook is an enterprise application and unless your friend needs Outlook for professional reasons, she doesn't need to set it up.

 

Even so, most companies that use Outlook have Office Business subscriptions anyway so the employees themselves don't pay for Office licenses.

 

Windows Mail is light, fast and simple to use; and 100% free.

Did your friend set up an Email account in Outlook? You need an Email account configured before those commands will work.

 

For a simpler experience, I would recommend your friend to use the built-in Windows Mail. Outlook is mostly good for business environments and is overkill for most of the people I've seen using it.

Office 365 is a subscription service, you can pay monthly or for the entire year which is cheaper. Among some other benefits like 1 Tb of OneDrive storage and getting 60 Skype minutes each month the Office 365 subscription also includes a license to download the full Office suite and install it on  up to 5 computers. This of course includes Outlook as well as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. But you only get to use the full set of Office apps and features as long as you pay your subscription.

You probably didn’t get a response back before because your question is pretty hard to understand.

Even now the only question I can glean from this is:

“Is there outlook or office 365 email ?”

Yes. Outlook is the e-mail client in Microsoft office.

 

If you want your friend to be helped by the list, I think you’ll need to be a bit more specific, or maybe even get her on here to ask the question herself.

Does she have outlook? I guess that’d be a good place to start. Is she trying to set up e-mail with an iSP? Gmail? Something else?

Munawar Bijani <munawarb@...>
 

They want to automate it and also have JAWS automatically restart. Their original message said: "Do you know any command line that can force jaws to restart??" So, they're looking for automation here. JAWSKEY+F4 only shuts down JAWS. To restart it you have to either press the JAWS shortcut key (if you've assigned one) on the desktop shortcut or press WIN+R and enter jaws2019. But OP wants a single-click shutdown and restart solution. That's why the shutdown keystroke isn't sufficient for them.

Hi,

You can kill JAWS by executing the taskkill command:

taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f

 

The problem with this approach is that you will also need to kill all of JAWS' child processes. When I have some time I'll go through task manager and see all of the different processes that JAWS has. You would use taskkill to kill them off one by one before restarting JAWS.

 

You also need to be running an elevated command prompt to execute taskkill.

 

If done successfully, here is what the output looks like:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]
(c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f

This is because i'm using a program on my laptop that disables the Jaws key. And th only way to restore it is to restart Jaws. But i wish i could write a batch file that would make it automatically after this program has been run.

thank you for any suggestions

 

Have a nice day

Why use such a complicate method to do something one can do with the single keystroke, Jaws Key + F4.

Hi,

You can kill JAWS by executing the taskkill command:

taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f

 

The problem with this approach is that you will also need to kill all of JAWS' child processes. When I have some time I'll go through task manager and see all of the different processes that JAWS has. You would use taskkill to kill them off one by one before restarting JAWS.

 

You also need to be running an elevated command prompt to execute taskkill.

 

If done successfully, here is what the output looks like:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.175]
(c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /IM "jfw.exe" /f
SUCCESS: The process "jfw.exe" with PID 8856 has been terminated.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Hi Dean,

My objective is to make Jaws restart seemlessly so that users are not forced to deal with keystrokes. Some of my cleints get nervous and lose self-trust when its time to shutdown jaws and restart it manually.

Since this process is used when installing Jaws (automatically restart when install is complete), i thought there was a command line that could do the job.

Nevertheless this would be helpful in other circumstances.

I have this DOS command in my desktop shortcut.

the 's is for shutdown, -r is for reboot

the -f is for force (It doesn't work as well as it did in Win7

The -t is the time to wait -- 0 mili seconds

 

The command shutdown.exe might work without the path.

You could move the shutdown.exe file to your root directory.

Ok, but I'm 90% sure from reading past messages that your friend doesn't need Office Email, and Microsoft is probably upselling at this point.


If your friend is running Windows 10, have them ask the disability support line to stop playing with Office and just set up Windows Mail for them. It will be far, far easier for your friend and much less complicated. Outlook is an enterprise application and unless your friend needs Outlook for professional reasons, she doesn't need to set it up.


Even so, most companies that use Outlook have Office Business subscriptions anyway so the employees themselves don't pay for Office licenses.


Windows Mail is light, fast and simple to use; and 100% free.

Office 365 is a subscription service, you can pay monthly or for the entire year which is cheaper. Among some other benefits like 1 Tb of OneDrive storage and getting 60 Skype minutes each month the Office 365 subscription also includes a license to download the full Office suite and install it on  up to 5 computers. This of course includes Outlook as well as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. But you only get to use the full set of Office apps and features as long as you pay your subscription.

Munawar Bijani <munawarb@...>
 

I had this issue as well and exported my bookmarks from Chrome to a file, then edited the file to remove the "Imported From Firefox" folder.


This is pretty simple to do since the Chrome bookmarks are saved in XML, and all bookmarks are child nodes to the folder node they're inside.


Once you remove the folder, just re-import the bookmarks file and you'll be good to go.

I actually found bookmarks the hardest transition when I first moved from IE to chrome, but now use chrome all the time and almost never use IE any more.

If you press and hold ALT and then press F (it should say context menu at this stage), then release alt and f, press b (it should say something like bookmarks sub menu), simply press right cursor key and you???re in the list of bookmarks.
