Hey Shirley, this just happened to me as well and I know I didn’t do it, so don’t feel too bad. Once in a while these computers just do their own thing and we’re left to make it right. I also have this happen with my choice of default programs. Best, Norma

Hi shirley,

 

Open any file explorer window and make sure nothing is selected, it shouldn’t be when  you first open a folder unless you move the cursor. If a folder or file is selected you can press Control + Spacebar to unselect it.

Now press Shift + F10, arrow to Sort by, expand the sub menu with the right arrow and then arrow down and make sure “ascending” is selected, simply press enter once you get to it and that should fix it.

Hi listers,

 

In my great wisdom, I managed to invert the listed files. Not sure how I did it, but those beginning with the letter Z are on top and the files beginning with the letter A are at the bottom. Not a terrible thing, but annoying. Since I don’t know how it got this way, I can’t figure out how to put it back the way I’m used to it. Can someone please help me?

 

FYI, I’m using JAWS 2018 and Windows 10.

 

Thanks for any help.

Actually the easiest way to rename a folder is to find the folder and then press F2.

Hello, everyone.

 

I just updated to the latest build of Jaws 2019 on this Windows 10 PC.

 

Most things seem to be working well, and I’m very glad to have the Alt 1 through 6 commands available again for reading Outlook 2016 message fields.

 

However, I might have discovered a bug in File Explorer with the new Jaws update.

 

When in a folder list view, I used to be able to create a new folder using the alt control N command.  I found this to be quite handy and efficient.

 

While I can still create a new folder by finding the option in the file explorer menus, it seems like the alt control N command is no longer working.

 

Can anyone else check for this bug, and let us know if it is being experienced on other Windows 10 computers with the latest Jaws update?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

It’s because you’re using the incorrect keystroke.

 

Try Control+Shift+N and be happy.

Sieghard and all:

 

I tried alt 2 for creating a new folder, and find it more difficult than control shift N.  I’m sure it’s just a matter of personal preference.

 

Nevertheless, as I said before, it’s always good to have multiple ways for doing something.

 

I appreciate this list and the help it provides for questions like this.  Hopefully, we all learn something.

Subject: Possible Bug In File Explorer In Latest Jaws Update

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I just updated to the latest build of Jaws 2019 on this Windows 10 PC.

 

Most things seem to be working well, and I’m very glad to have the Alt 1 through 6 commands available again for reading Outlook 2016 message fields.

 

However, I might have discovered a bug in File Explorer with the new Jaws update.

 

When in a folder list view, I used to be able to create a new folder using the alt control N command.  I found this to be quite handy and efficient.

 

While I can still create a new folder by finding the option in the file explorer menus, it seems like the alt control N command is no longer working.

 

Can anyone else check for this bug, and let us know if it is being experienced on other Windows 10 computers with the latest Jaws update?

 

Thanks!
