Re: putting this pc on the desktop?
The exact way Jaws announces this is as follows:
Desktop icons Computer 3 state button not checked, alt+m
What a "3 State Button" is is hard to know, but the fact is that that is what you want to check and pressing the spacebar will toggle the checkbox from not checked to checked, then tab I think about 5 times to OK and activate it, after that you can close settings with Alt + F4. I don't want This PC on my desktop because I can easily access it from anywhere with the Windows Key + E shortcut or press the start menu and start typing "This", but I do like my user folder on the desktop which is another option in this list. For some reason from time to time it goes away and I have to recheck it, but the key here definitely is to make sure you also press OK or Apply after you check the item.
By the way, if you want another much more useful way to access This PC I would put it on the taskbar where you can use Windows Key + whatever number This PC is on your taskbar to activate it form anywhere, no need to first go to the desktop.
For example, if you have This PC pinned to your taskbar in position 4, Windows Key + 4 on the number row will open it from anywhere.
To do this press the Windows Key, type "This PC" or part of it until you hear Jaws say "This PC, app, press right to switch preview", then press Alt + F10 or you rapplication key and select "Pin to Taskbar".

Thanks Kevin, I saw a place where it said something was partially checked whatever that means, I'll go back and see if it was computer and if so I'll check it and see what happens.
