I think that was true for a lot of us.  But I also think that calling the menus "intuitive" is a side effect of having used them for years, too.  There has never been a complex program I've worked with, when it was completely new to me, that I'd call intuitive even though that's a term that gets tossed around alot.  They're all puzzles one has to work one's way through, and once one has one often wonders how they ever "didn't get that."

The ribbon interface does seem to be more "visually intuitive" to some, but for others such as myself it's a messy clutter compared to a menu-submenu system.  But for people who can see it does have the advantage of putting a very great many of the most frequently used features "front and center" if you can wade through the clutter.
 
When it comes to inserting rows/columns, though, I've always done that via the context menu.  It just makes sense to me to "work over/under for rows or left/right for columns" of where I currently am.  I also have a tendency to want to add blocks of rows at a time, so I'll often select several rows then do an insert rows command.  Adding 4 blocks of 5 rows is much faster than doing 20 individual rows.

changing document presentation on web-pages with hotkey

William Windels
 

Hello,

I use win10 with the last version of chrome/firefox and jaws19.

 

In some situations, it would be nice to change teh document presentation mode from screenview to simple presentation.

In earlier versions of jaws, I think jaws 16 and before, there was a hotkey to switch between different document presentation modes.

 

Since this hotkey function is gone, perhaps this is related to the smart-navigation function.

 

Anyway, is there a way to switch between document-presentation modi with 1 hotkey

(not with insert_+v and select there the option)?

Or can I configure that a specific web-domain should appear always in simple layout while the standard setting is screen-layout?

  

 

Kind regards,

William Windels

Press the applications key and arrow down to insert and press enter. There
you will have the choice of cells, columns, or rows.

Alt+i, then r, will also insert a row.

I use the context key (f10). Arrow down to insert, press enter and then arrow down to whether you want to insert a row, colmn etc.

Brian,
 
Yes, I learned to work with the ribbon years ago, and have learned several quick Alt+ keystrokes to get the job done. But from my perspective, the menus were more intuitive overall. Can't help saying that, but for me, it was true.
 
Of course I don't use those virtual ribbons provided by JAWS -- just a crutch.

Dave,

           I really don't get all the complaining about the ribbon interface.  It's a menu, just laid out more visually for those who can see, and more "horizontally" than vertically.

           When you have a program like Word, or Excel, or any complex piece of software that has hundreds through thousands of functions there is no way to make keyboard shortcuts "intuitive."  They've never been intuitive.  You find your own set of "greatest hits" that you use all the time, over time, and commit them to memory.

            I don't find it any more difficult to think of the Home Tab/Ribbon, Insert (or Delete or Format) commands than I did when they were arranged as dropdown menus.  People just don't want to even think about it, but that's too bad, as the Ribbon interface is not going away anytime soon and the old Menu interface is gone for good.  It just is not all that difficult to use the ribbons, but it certainly is if you resist them, and some have been resisting them for well over a decade now.  What a waste of time and effort.  It's easier, and more sensible, to learn how they work.

windows 10 export / import settings

Marvin Hunkin <neilmarvin@...>
 

Hi. apart from doing the group policy editor. Is there a utility. Which could export to a csv or a xhml file. If moving to a new laptop. So then don’t have to spend weeks having to install all my 50 or over 100 programs, programming projects. Then opening the project in visual studio, then building, etc. is there a utlity that you know of. If any one has had to then purchase a new computer and set it up. Thinking about maybe purchasing a new Lenovo laptop and a external drive. My machine is almost 5 years old. Purchase in July 2014. And do I need a dvd drive, do most laptops don’t come with a dvd drive any more. So what if I need to install jaws from a dvd.

Marvin.

Ps: also is there a way to set my machine back to windows 7 from windows 10. Apart and not sure if I have the backup disks and also how to transfer ownership say to a family member like my sister.

Thanks.

Peter,

            By the way, the insert controls for cells (which includes rows and columns) is a group of its own on the Home tab/ribbon.  It's the sixth group from the leftmost group, and the shortcuts in Excel 2016 are:

                            ALT+H, followed by I for insert  (then you get a dropdown for rows, columns, cells, etc.)
                                                            D for delete
                                                            O for format

Re: How to insert a row in Excell using the ribbons?

 

The Insert tab and ribbon is not meant for inserting rows, which is typically done while you're in a worksheet and focused on the row (or rows) that you wish to insert rows above or below [the same applies to column(s), except substitute left/right for above/below].

The Insert tab and ribbon is for inserting objects of various sorts into a spreadsheet.  The Groups in the Insert ribbon are Tables, Illustrations, Charts, Tours, Sparklines, Filters, Links, Text, and Symbols.  Once you hit ALT+N to activate the Insert Tab, you can either brute force TAB and SHIFT+TAB through all the controls.  CTRL+Right or Left Arrow will move you between groups quickly, then you can tab among its controls.

Re: Reclassing a Window?

While in the window you want to reassign, go to JAWS managers (insert+f2). Press enter on window class reassign. Arrow through the list of possibilities and press enter on the one you want. If that doesn't help, delete the class assignment and try again.

Good luck!
