If you open Control Panel>AutoPlay, and cause removable drives to open with
File Explorer, you don't even need to go to File Explorer to find the drive.
It pops up the minute you insert the drive. Then you can find the folder
into which you want to paste your files, and paste them from the clipboard.
Just copy the files to the clipboard before inserting the thumb drive, then
paste them when the drive pops up, and you open the folder where you want to
paste the files.

What I've done is to paste my files or folders from wherever they live to
the new external drive. When you open the drive there will probably be
nothing listed unless there is some software from the drive manufacturer.
So move what you want and you will have copies of what you transferred.
Hope this helps.

The answer is, "No."   I have been warning people about this on every screen-reader-focused group on which I participate.   IE has been receiving nothing but security updates for years now, and is woefully out of date and out of sync with contemporary web coding standards.  There are many sites which are using coding standards that came into existence after development of IE ceased, and they know that they will not work correctly with IE, and have code built-in to detect the browser and block entry with IE.

moderated Re: IE 11 brouser problem

 

There is no point calling Vispero about something like that, it is completely unrelated to Jaws and even if Jaws had something to do with it, one could hardly expect them to still support a version which was released in 2013 and which is now 5 versions and almost 6 years out of date, in 4 months Jaws 2020 will come out and then there will already be 6 major releases since Jaws 15. II guess for some people it’s sufficient to stay with one computer and this setup for so long, but it is clear that with each year they will most likely run into more issues and potential compatibility problems like the one that was described with certain websites not supporting a discontinued browser. IE may remain on life support so to speak for a number of years, but I think in many cases even large corporations who may have internal websites which were built for that may still use it for that, but their employees may use browsers like Chrome to access the rest of the Internet.

If the original poster encounters a website or web sites which don’t support IE any more or don’t work well with it then there is nothing that can be done except to use a different browser. I wasn’t even aware that Jaws 15 had Chrome support, I remember once having some sort of issue last year and I reinstalled Jaws 16 on a PC for testing purposes and I seem to remember that it didn’t work with Chrome.

Chrome will not work with JAWS 15.?? The earliest version of JAWS that works with Chrome is JAWS 18.?? Same for the latest version of Firefox.?? It will not work with JAWS 15, either.?? I think the latest version of Firefox that works with JAWS 15 is Firefox 52 ESR, which is obsolete, although Webvisum still works with it.?? Therefore, in order to use the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox with JAWS, the best solution would be to purchase a one year license for JAWS 2019 for $90, or else switch to NVDA.?? Chrome is probably the best browser to use in most situations, although some web sites may still be more accessible with IE.?? Many users now avoid Firefox altogether, because it no longer allows third party extensions, and has become a bloated, screwed-up mess that is slow and prone to crashes and freezes.
