Hi Jean,

Hi Karen!

You should be able to go to the about JAWS dialog and it will tell you how many upgrades you have left.

1. insert+J to open the JAWS context menu 2. press up arrow two time to get to the about option 3. press enter 4. press insert+alt+W to virtualize the dialog, this makes it easy to browse what it says.
or you could switch to the JAWS cursor by pressing the numeric keypad - key.

Yes, for some reason all it tells me is the version and my number.

I must have something set up differently. I can press insert plus j and it brings up the jaws window and reads the current version, like it would as a heading. It won’t let me get to the menus this way unless I press alt h. Is there a setting I need to change in Jaws?

Hi Karen,
 
If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 
 
If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

Hi Karen!

For me it gets JAWS out of the task bar and out of the alt+tab loop so it not always in the way.

Not having a JAWS window makes it less obtrusive and gives it a greater appearance of running in the background. You can hit jaws key + j to access the menu so there’s no disadvantage.

Not having a JAWS window makes it less obtrusive and gives it a greater appearance of running in the background. You can hit jaws key + j to access the menu so there’s no disadvantage.

Hi Karen,

 

If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 

 

If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I must have something set up differently. I can press insert plus j and it brings up the jaws window and reads the current version, like it would as a heading. It won’t let me get to the menus this way unless I press alt h. Is there a setting I need to change in Jaws?

Hi Karen!

You should be able to go to the about JAWS dialog and it will tell you how many upgrades you have left.

1. insert+J to open the JAWS context menu 2. press up arrow two time to get to the about option 3. press enter 4. press insert+alt+W to virtualize the dialog, this makes it easy to browse what it says.
or you could switch to the JAWS cursor by pressing the numeric keypad - key.

Hi Karen,
 
The advantage for me is by running it from the system tray it keeps the Jaws window out of the, Alt - Tab, order when Alt - Tabbing amongst open windows, but the Jaws context menues can still be accessed via the, Insert + J, keystroke, as mentioned by Gene I believe.
 
One caveat seldom mentioned is that you can tell Jaws to run from the system tray, but you don't have to have it show in the system tray.  I do it this way so it cuts down clutter in the Alt - Tab order and also shows one less icon in the system tray.

It really should be the default, but maybe it isn't so because having it in the alt tab rotation may cause some beginners explore the Jaws settings, which sadly is rare.

Hi Mike,

So if I put it in the system tray, when I alt tab through other programs that are open, it isn’t one that I would alt tab through? So if I had Outlook and two documents in Word open and I was doing alt tab to go between them, Jaws wouldn’t be a part of that?

Hi Mike,

So if I put it in the system tray, when I alt tab through other programs that are open, it isn’t one that I would alt tab through? So if I had Outlook and two documents in Word open and I was doing alt tab to go between them, Jaws wouldn’t be a part of that?

Hi Karen,

 

The advantage for me is by running it from the system tray it keeps the Jaws window out of the, Alt - Tab, order when Alt - Tabbing amongst open windows, but the Jaws context menues can still be accessed via the, Insert + J, keystroke, as mentioned by Gene I believe.

 

One caveat seldom mentioned is that you can tell Jaws to run from the system tray, but you don't have to have it show in the system tray.  I do it this way so it cuts down clutter in the Alt - Tab order and also shows one less icon in the system tray.

If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 

 

If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

Hi Karen,
 
Okay here we go.  Steps for turning on System tray icons and how to rearrange the system tray icons if you would like to do this.
 
Turning on system tray icons:
1. Windows key + I, for Settings, then tab 1 time to, System.
2. Navigate to, Personalization, press enter, then tab 1 time to get into the list of options.
3. Down arrow to, Taskbar, press enter.
4. Tab several times to,Select which icons appear on the Taskbar link, press enter.
5. Tab through these icons, & press the spacebar to toggle or turn off / On.  If an item is checked it's, On, if it's unchecked it's, Off.  Items that are turned on appear in the system tray.
 
Here's how I rearrange the system tray icons  running Windows 10 Pro Version 21H2 latest:
 
1. Windows key + I, for Settings, tab 1 time to System, right arrow to Personalization, and press enter.
2. Navigate to, Taskbar and press enter.
3. Tab several times to, Show Badges on Taskbar..., and make sure this is, Off / unchecked.
4. Tab a few times to, Notification Area, Select which icons appear on the taskbar Link, and press enter.
5. Okay now to put the System Tray in the order you want it in.  Tab through all the icons making a note of which ones you have checked / turned on because
you're going to uncheck all of them.
6. Uncheck all the icons.  Now you will go through and check the icons in the reverse order you want them in because , the 1st one yu check will be at
the bottom of the list, the 2nd will be 2nd from the bottom, the 3rd will
be 3rd from the bottom etc. etc....  After you're done open the system tray to make sure it's the way you want it and Alt + F4 if it is, there's not an
Okay button.
 
Note: If you have the Action Center showing in the system tray I don't know of any way to get that to show anywhere else except at the bottom.  Rearranging
the icons using the steps above will put them in the order you want them, but they'll all be above the Action Center.
 
 
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Mike,

How do I get it to run in the system tray?

Hi Karen,

 

If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 

 

If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I must have something set up differently. I can press insert plus j and it brings up the jaws window and reads the current version, like it would as a heading. It won’t let me get to the menus this way unless I press alt h. Is there a setting I need to change in Jaws?

Hi Karen,

 

Press, Insert + J, up arrow to, Help submenu, press enter, up arrow to, About, press enter and this is where you'll find the info you're looking for.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Yes, for some reason all it tells me is the version and my number.

Hi Jean,
When I press insert j it only gives me the version number. I'm not able to up arrow at all.

Hi Karen!

You should be able to go to the about JAWS dialog and it will tell you how many upgrades you have left.

1. insert+J to open the JAWS context menu 2. press up arrow two time to get to the about option 3. press enter 4. press insert+alt+W to virtualize the dialog, this makes it easy to browse what it says.
or you could switch to the JAWS cursor by pressing the numeric keypad - key.
