Re: Creating Webpage Desktop Shortcuts for Any Web Browser

one instance: if there's a website that works better with a browser that
is not set as the default browser, a copy of the desktop shortcut that
launches that browser can be copied to the clipboard and then pasted on
to the desktop, open it's properties and append the website URL to the
end of the path that launches the executable for the browser, and the
name of the shortcut needs to be renamed to something that reflects
which browser is opening the website, for example Sample Poems via
Chrome, or Kitty Land via Firefox.

That's not how desktop shortcuts, except those to files, have ever worked.

You can't right click on the shortcut to a program and say, "Open with,"
something else.

I have never heard of anyone, prior to now, wanting web URLs to open
with anything other than the web browser of their choosing.  If they
want to use another one then they can open the shortcut itself, copy the
URL, open the other web browser wanted at the moment, and paste it in.

Web desktop shortcuts have always opened with the default web browser
from day one.

It was explained elsewhere (although I don’t remember now if it was on this list or the other one) how to get a shortcut to open in whatever browser you want.

 

Frankly I don’t see the big deal. Why not just use browser bookmarks? That’s what they’re there for after all. I know everyone likes doing things in different ways and it’s one of the nice things about Windows that you can. Still, accessing stuff from the desktop never seemed that efficient or worthwhile to me.

See this article on intowindows.com entitled, How To Create Website Shortcut On Desktop In Windows 10, which gives you alternative methods for creating desktop shortcuts to websites that are applicable no matter what web browser you're using.  They're applicable on earlier versions of Windows, too.

If your default web browser is something other than Internet Explorer (and it should be) you can still use the trick of using IE to view the webpage you want the shortcut for then invoke it's Create Shortcut function.  The shortcut on the desktop will open in whatever your chosen default web browser happens to be, as what's created is nothing more than a shortcut to a web page and those are always opened by the default web browser you've chosen.

JFW and Excel 2013 auto filter

Boston, Jason W
 

Hello,

I’ve seen this issue with any version of JFW that supports Excel 2013  and later.

 

When using auto filter if any given column you want to filter has very many unique occurrences, JFW slows down the process. The more unique values, the slower Jaws is to open up the drop down.

 

Now by many unique occurrences, I mean 20000 or more unique occurrences. I use excel to dig into data when it’s a single table.

Just to clarify, if a column has 5 different values, but there are 20000 rows, it still opens instantly, but if all 20000 occurrences are unique like a Social Security number or some ID number, then it’s very slow.

 

Any suggestions on how to make auto filter open up quicker? In Excel 2010 this was not an issue.

 

I’ve also  tested this by having a spreadsheet open, trying to open the drop down with Jaws on and it goes slow. I can then turn Jaws off and have a sighted person click on the dropdown arrow and it opens up immediately. I can turn Jaws back on and try to open the same dropdown and it’s slow just like it was before.

 

In Excel if you hold down the alt  key and press down arrow this is how you open the drop down, just like a combo box.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Actually, a faster method of accessing the same search box Seagar uses is to press F3. You can essentially run the same exact search within Outlook than one can run using the ControlAltF Advanced search method except there’s less tabbing using F3 as opposed to the Advanced search.

 

The Outlook search box can be used to find specific events or appointments within the calendar. You can also use the search box to find very specific pieces of information contained within your contacts such as birthday and family relationships. Press F3 then type in an area code to show all individuals in that area code. If you keep good notes per contact, you can quickly find business contacts using this search field.

 

There are some customizations you can make to specify where you want Outlook to search (inbox or all mail folders), but using the search box in Outlook is very easy, quick, and incredibly efficient for managing information associated with friends, family, and business.

Hi,
I use JAWS 2018 in my Windows 10 PC. I use Outlook and was trying to find a particular email and used Shift + Ctrl + F for the same. The dialogue box popped up and I typed in what I was looking for. The email that was found using this method shows at the bottom of the dialogue box. However, I was unable to access it using the keyboard. Pressing Tab key took me back to the top of the dialogue box but not to the email that was found. The email, however, can be accessed by clicking on it. Can anyone help me on how I can access it using Keyboard?

Re: How do you "send shortcut to desktop" in Firefox 52?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/savelink/

it appears to only create a "text" file for a shortcut that has the URL
of a website with a URL extension instead of a LNK (what's the
difference?). so the URL will open with the default browser, but how to
make it open with Firefox? I don't see a way, unless someone can layout
the steps using this extension. Jeremy did offer steps that don't rely
on the installation of an extension.

anything so it never even occurred to me that you couldn't do this as easily
in FF as you could in iE. Actually as I posted above, for mouse users it's
very easy to drag a URL onto the desktop from the address bar, but, alas,
Mozilla hasn't thought of a convenient way to do this from the keyboard. I
did find an add-on though, which, I think, is supposed to add an item to the
context menu as it appears in Internet Explorer.

I believe what is being suggested is the following:

Note: I copied and pasted the following from an item on the JAWS-Users list,
sorry I couldn't give direct credit to the author since he/she is not
stated.



Creating a website shortcut on the desktop for Firefox and Chrome

Unlike Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome do not seem to save bookmarks
as shortcuts,

instead they seem to be accessed from an HTML file.

Firefox does not appear to have any provision for sending a website shortcut
to the Desktop, hence the need for this work-around.



Mozilla Firefox:

If Firefox is your default browser, do the following:



1. Open the webpage you want, and copy the URL to the clipboard.

2. From the Desktop, press control + spacebar to deselect all items on the
desktop.

3. Press the applications key or Shift + F10 to open the context menu.

4. Arrow to the "New" sub-menu, and press enter.

5. Arrow to "Shortcut", and press enter.

6. When the shortcut dialogue opens, you will be in an edit field, so paste
the URL from the clipboard.

7. Tabb to the next button, and press the spacebar.

8. In this edit field, give your shortcut a name, then tab to finish, and
press the spacebar.

You are done.

Note:

If Firefox is not your default browser, then creating the shortcut as
outlined above will

result in that site opening in whichever is your default browser.



Browser specific shortcuts:

Note:

When making a website shortcut in this manner you may want to include the
browser name in the shortcut name,

so that when you go to that site you will know which browser it is opening
in.

Keep in mind, that these are browser specific, so they will open the site in
the assigned browser no matter what your default browser is.



If you want a specific webpage to open in a specific browser, for instance,
Internet Explorer is my default,

but I want a specific site to open in Firefox or Chrome, here's what to do:



Mozilla Firefox:

1. Open the webpage you want, and copy the URL to the clipboard.

2. Locate the executable for Firefox, then open the context menu, and choose
Desktop create shortcut from the SendTo sub-menu.

3. Go to the Desktop and locate the shortcut you just sent there.

4. Press Alt + Enter to open the properties of the shortcut.

5. In the shortcut dialogue, you will be in an edit field containing the
file path of the executable,

press the end key to move you to the end of the file path.

6. Press the spacebar once, then paste the URL from the clipboard.

7. Tab to the apply button, spacebar that, then tab to the okay button and
do the same.

You are done.



Google Chrome:

While on the website you want to create a desktop shortcut for do the
following:

1. Press Alt + F for the file menu.

2. Arrow to, "More Tools", and press enter.

3. In the resulting menu choose, "Add to Desktop", and press enter.

4. In the resulting edit field, the shortcut name will appear, you can
change this to your liking

then press enter to close the dialogue.

You are done.



Note:

On my system, I noticed when creating a shortcut in Chrome as described
above,

that when the page loads, there is only a context menu.,

however, when creating a browser specific shortcut as outlined above, the
standard Chrome menu is available.





Additional Note:

You can further customize any shortcut from within the properties of the
shortcut,

such as changing the name, assigning a keystroke, , or opening the site
maximized.

I tried this, and it does not directly work.

I guess you need to create some kind of file to place on the desktop; simply
copying the url as is tehre, I think, will not work.

I haven't investigated, but the format of whatever file is saved on the
desktop using IE that contains the uRL (and yes, it would be some kind of
shortcut file, possibly with extention .lnk?) should be easily replicatable.
This means you could simply open notepad, put your url in there using
whatever prefix characters are required, and save it to your desktop. But
I'm only theorising as I haven't looked into it much.



I did find this. It's an add-on for firefox that might add an item to the
context menus as they exist in ie. But you'll have to try it and see.

Re: Finding and accessing emails in Outlook using JAWS

 

Hi Alan,

 

I occasionally use Control+Shift+F for the advanced search feature, but for the most part when I look for something I want just a quick search of all my mailboxes and I don’t mind a results list with several or even 10 or 20 emails and that is what Control+E gives me. Here is one example where I use it:

When we get an online order from our webstore and ship it we use Canada Post. As soon as we create the shipping label an email is generated by Canada Post which we as well as the customer receive, it has the tracking number, the person’s name/address, any reference phrase we type in and themessage that the shipping label was created. Later on when we drop off the package at the post office another email is generated which is almost identical except the message now says “Package received at originating post office”. A few days later a third email is received which confirms that the parcel was delivered. If, however, the person was not home or we shipped to a PO Box, this email indicates that a card was left indicating where the person can pick up their parcel.This email has the tracking number, the name of the city and name and address of the post office where the package can be picked up, but it does not have the person’s name. If by now we have shipped a few more packages I may not remember simply by the city name whose parcel that is. In this case I copy the tracking number to the clipboard, then I press Control+E and I paste it into the search box, press enter and then do a Shift+Tab. Even though by now I would have made a folder for the customer in my Outlook Folder Web Orders > 2018, I now see the other two Canada Post emails which also contain that tracking number in the message body, I can open either the “label created” or “received at originating post office” email to check the name so I can then move the new email into that person’s folder.

 

Sorry for the long explanation, but that is one common example of how I use this search box and while I could accomplish the same thing by using Control+Shift+F pasting in the tracking number, selecting to search in subject line and message body etc. it would require me to make more choices before I can find the email.

I think each method has it’s place and I’m sorry, Jeremy, but for me pressing Control+E is just as fast s pressing F3, but you are correct, both keystrokes take you to the search box as does pressing tab once from the message list which one could argue is the fastest method since if my hands are poised over the “ASDF” portion of the keyboard pressing tab with my little finger is faster than having to reach all the way up to F3, but that is nitpicking and everybody has their preference so it makes no difference. You can often use one of two or even 3 or 4 key combinations in Windows to accomplish the same thing and that is just a fact so everybody can figure out what works best for them.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi, JR. When you do a search using F3, it is not the same as doing one with CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F. When using CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F, there is a category which allows you to select whether you want the search done using subject, body, or frequently used text fields. The default is Subject. You won’t find as many hits with Subject as you will with frequently used text fields, and you won’t find this category in your search using F3.

Hi,
I use JAWS 2018 in my Windows 10 PC. I use Outlook and was trying to find a particular email and used Shift + Ctrl + F for the same. The dialogue box popped up and I typed in what I was looking for. The email that was found using this method shows at the bottom of the dialogue box. However, I was unable to access it using the keyboard. Pressing Tab key took me back to the top of the dialogue box but not to the email that was found. The email, however, can be accessed by clicking on it. Can anyone help me on how I can access it using Keyboard?
Thanks!

Hi. is there a trouble shooter to fix windows narrator on windows 10 1803. When I sign in, don’t hear any voices, just the clicks and some times doing control windows enter will not turn off narrator. The only way to do that was to power down and then log back on, any one got a trouble shooter for this. Did google but could not seem to find any thing, also is there a trouble shooter for my soundcard.

Any ideas.

Hi, JR. When you do a search using F3, it is not the same as doing one with CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F. When using CONTROL plus SHIFT plus F, there is a category which allows you to select whether you want the search done using subject, body, or frequently used text fields. The default is Subject. You won’t find as many hits with Subject as you will with frequently used text fields, and you won’t find this category in your search using F3.

Actually, a faster method of accessing the same search box Seagar uses is to press F3. You can essentially run the same exact search within Outlook than one can run using the ControlAltF Advanced search method except there’s less tabbing using F3 as opposed to the Advanced search.

 

The Outlook search box can be used to find specific events or appointments within the calendar. You can also use the search box to find very specific pieces of information contained within your contacts such as birthday and family relationships. Press F3 then type in an area code to show all individuals in that area code. If you keep good notes per contact, you can quickly find business contacts using this search field.

 

There are some customizations you can make to specify where you want Outlook to search (inbox or all mail folders), but using the search box in Outlook is very easy, quick, and incredibly efficient for managing information associated with friends, family, and business.

I wasn’t the OP, but that post got me curious about finding a solution to this, and yeah, this should work! I don’t use the desktop for much of anything so it never even occurred to me that you couldn’t do this as easily in FF as you could in iE. Actually as I posted above, for mouse users it’s very easy to drag a URL onto the desktop from the address bar, but, alas, Mozilla hasn’t thought of a convenient way to do this from the keyboard.

I believe what is being suggested is the following:

Note: I copied and pasted the following from an item on the JAWS-Users list, sorry I couldn’t give direct credit to the author since he/she is not stated.

 

Creating a website shortcut on the desktop for Firefox and Chrome

Unlike Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome do not seem to save bookmarks as shortcuts,

instead they seem to be accessed from an HTML file.

Firefox does not appear to have any provision for sending a website shortcut to the Desktop, hence the need for this work-around.

 

Mozilla Firefox:

If Firefox is your default browser, do the following:

 

1. Open the webpage you want, and copy the URL to the clipboard.

2. From the Desktop, press control + spacebar to deselect all items on the desktop.

3. Press the applications key or Shift + F10 to open the context menu.

4. Arrow to the "New" sub-menu, and press enter.

5. Arrow to "Shortcut", and press enter.

6. When the shortcut dialogue opens, you will be in an edit field, so paste the URL from the clipboard.

7. Tabb to the next button, and press the spacebar.

8. In this edit field, give your shortcut a name, then tab to finish, and press the spacebar.

You are done.

Note:

If Firefox is not your default browser, then creating the shortcut as outlined above will

result in that site opening in whichever is your default browser.

 

Browser specific shortcuts:

Note:

When making a website shortcut in this manner you may want to include the browser name in the shortcut name,

so that when you go to that site you will know which browser it is opening in.

Keep in mind, that these are browser specific, so they will open the site in the assigned browser no matter what your default browser is.

 

If you want a specific webpage to open in a specific browser,  for instance, Internet Explorer is my default,

but I want a specific site to open in Firefox or Chrome, here's what to do:

 

Mozilla Firefox:

1. Open the webpage you want, and copy the URL to the clipboard.

2. Locate the executable for Firefox, then open the context menu, and choose Desktop create shortcut from the SendTo sub-menu.

3. Go to the Desktop and locate the shortcut you just sent there.

4. Press Alt + Enter to open the properties of the shortcut.

5. In the shortcut dialogue, you will be in an edit field containing the file path  of the executable,

press the end key to move you to the end of the file path.

6. Press the spacebar once, then paste the URL from the clipboard.

7. Tab to the apply button, spacebar that, then tab to the okay button and do the same.

You are done.

 

Google Chrome:

While on the website you want to create a desktop shortcut for do the following:

1. Press Alt + F for the file menu.

2. Arrow to, "More Tools", and press enter.

3. In the resulting menu choose, "Add to Desktop", and press enter.

4. In the resulting edit field, the shortcut name will appear, you can change this to your liking

then press enter to close the dialogue.

You are done.

 

Note:

On my system, I noticed when creating a shortcut in Chrome as described above,

that when the page loads, there  is only a context menu.,

however, when creating a browser specific shortcut as outlined above, the standard Chrome menu is available.

 

 

Additional Note:

You can further customize any shortcut from within the properties of the shortcut,

such as changing the name, assigning a keystroke, , or opening the site maximized.

I tried this, and it does not directly work.

I guess you need to create some kind of file to place on the desktop; simply copying the url as is tehre, I think, will not work.

I haven’t investigated, but the format of whatever file is saved on the desktop using IE that contains the uRL (and yes, it would be some kind of shortcut file, possibly with extention .lnk?) should be easily replicatable. This means you could simply open notepad, put your url in there using whatever prefix characters are required, and save it to your desktop. But I’m only theorising as I haven’t looked into it much.

 

I did find this. It’s an add-on for firefox that might add an item to the context menus as they exist in ie. But you’ll have to try it and see.
