The below link will allow you to change what signature is used for each group. Make a signature for this group that gives the information number and stuff like that. This can only be done on the web, or the upcoming groups IO app I'm currently testing. This can't be done via email. At all. You need to have an online account for changing group signatures on a per group basis.

Hi Leslie,
 
This setting has been in Jaws versions going back to, hell I don't know how far!  LOL  LOL 
 
It's just one of those settings that can be easily forgotten or misunderstood, but knowing how to use it can save all kinds of time when trying to edit content copied from the internet / webpage.  Sure hope it works in your instance.

Hi Mike:

Sorry, I may have missed your first post, but I got it now. I was able to
change virtual cursor options to copy from virtual cursor. To be honest,
I've been a Jaws user for a while and don't remember when the on-screen
highlight option came into being. guess I should read the "What's New"
page for each version. Thank you very much.

I have a feeling I'll be asking more questions since I'm back in school

The roll-out for the latest Feature Update has commenced. The following is offered as a public service announcement and reminder regarding what to expect under the current paradigm for Feature Updates that’s been in place since Version 1903.

First, and most importantly, it could be months before the latest Feature Update to Windows 10 is offered to you in the Windows Update Pane of Update & Security Settings.

When Microsoft considers your machine suitable for inclusion in an update cohort, you will be presented with a notice in the Windows Update Pane.  This notice has consistently been worded as follows, with the only variation being the actual Version number in the opening line:


         Feature update to Windows 10, version 2004
         The next version of Windows is available with new features and security improvements. 

         When you're ready for the update, select "Download and install."

This notice is immediately followed by the actual Download and install link which, when activated, does just that. Fully automatic updates are, effectively, a thing of the past. So, watch your Windows Update Pane for this notice. Remember if at least one month from the first day of release has not already passed if you activate it you are consenting to participate in the "shake out cruise" that occurs in the early weeks of each and every feature update.

It is best practice not to force a Feature Update ahead of the time that Microsoft presents it for download and installation in the Windows Update Pane of Update & Security Settings.

A "Public Service Announcement" Regarding Windows 10 Feature Updates & How They Work #AdminNotice #WinTen20H2

 
Edited

What follows is offered as a public service announcement and reminder regarding what to expect under the current delivery paradigm for Feature Updates that’s been in place since Version 1903.

A recent question regarding the use of the Check for Updates button in Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update Pane, has triggered me to add this paragraph to this admin notice (as well as change the hashtag for Version 20H2).  Prior to Version 1903, using the Check for Updates button had the potential to cause a forced update to the newly released Feature Update to occur.  This is no longer true.  You can use that button to see if the version of Windows 10 that you are currently running has all available updates for it applied or not.  You can and will get the message, You're up to date, at the top of the Windows Update Pane if all available updates for the version of Windows 10 that you are currently running have already been applied.  You must look below that in the pane to check to see if the announcement about the availability of a Feature Update for your machine is present.

It could be months after the initial release date before the latest Feature Update to Windows 10 is offered to you in the Windows Update Pane of Update & Security Settings.  If it's not there, your machine is not ready.  Just check back at a later time and keep checking off and on until it does appear.

When Microsoft considers your machine suitable for inclusion in an update cohort, you will be presented with a notice in the Windows Update Pane.  This notice has consistently been worded as follows, with the only variation being the actual Version number in the opening line:


         Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2
         The next version of Windows is available with new features and security improvements. 

         When you're ready for the update, select "Download and install."

Note well the, "When you're ready for the update," part of the final sentence in the notice.  You are not being ordered to download and install the Feature Update right now, but merely being offered the option when it suits you.  Activating the Download and install link does just that. Fully automatic updates are, effectively, a thing of the past. So, watch your Windows Update Pane for this notice. Remember if at least one month from the first day of release has not already passed if you activate it you are consenting to participate in the "shake out cruise" that occurs in the early weeks of each and every feature update.  There are also times where new issues reveal themselves during the rollout period, and your machine can and will go from having the update is available notice to the "not quite ready" notice if your hardware could potentially be affected by those issues.  It will eventually go back to update available status once those issues have been addressed.

It is best practice not to force a Feature Update ahead of the time that Microsoft presents it for download and installation in the Windows Update Pane of Update & Security Settings.  And if you do not need anything that's in a given feature update, it's a good idea not to activate the Download and install link until at least one month or two has passed from the initial release date.

Yes, and it could be months, potentially, before the 2004 Version of Windows 10 is offered to you in the Windows Update Pane of Update & Security Settings.

This has been the case since Version 1903, where when Microsoft considers your machine suitable for inclusion in an update cohort, you will be presented with a notice in the Windows Update Pane.  This notice has consistently been worded as follows, with the only variation being the actual Version number in the opening line:

which is immediately followed by the actual Download and install link which, when activated, does just that.  Full automatic updates are, effectively, a thing of the past since a significant number of people complained very loudly about feature updates occurring that way.  Even allowing them to download and install, but not trigger a restart unless the end user allowed it, was considered "too much."  Microsoft bowed to the demand to change how and when feature updates are applied, and like all changes, some love this one while others hate it.  But it is what it is.

So watch your Windows Update Pane for this notice.  And if at least one month from the first day of release has not already passed know that if you activate it you are consenting to participate in the "shake out cruise" that occurs in the early weeks of each and every feature update.

3. Navigate to Sound and do not activate it.
4. Open context menu and select "create shortcut".
5. If asked to place the shortcut on Desktop, say yes.
6. Go to desktop and locate the just added "Sound - shortcut" icon and do not activate it.
7. Open properties (Alt+Enter).
8. From hotkey field, press the hotkey to open this Control Panel shortcut and click OK.
If things have gone as planned, when you press the newly assigned hotkey, Sound window should open.

Re: Getting a shortcut on the desktop

Hi Curtis,
 
I just went to the control panel / Sounds link.
 
With  the, Sounds link, highlighted I opened the context menu, arrowed down to. Create shortcut, and pressed enter.  I received a dialogue about not being able to create a shortcut here and was asked if I wanted to create it on the desktop instead, so I pressend enter on the, Yes, option.
 
I went to my desktop, found the, Sounds shortcut, then I pressed, Alt + Enter, to open the shortcut properties.
 
The first field is the create shortcut key dialogue.  Enter the key sequence you want, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.
 
The first time I used my shortcut key sequence it took a couple of seconds to respond.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

much else, and none is being used for another action but it just doesn't
let me. I've messed with permissions for myself in my computer of which
I am the administrator, but still with all read / write permissions all
ok, naught is the case.
Any ideas?

*How To Create Shortcuts*

1. Open the Run dialog (Windows+R=run).

2. Type in:

shell:AppsFolder

3. Press enter to view this folder.

4. Find an app you wish to create a shortcut for by using the Left and
Right arrow keys, or use first-letter navigation to find an app such as
Outlook or Microsoft Outlook.

5. Press the applications key, or, shift+f10 and choose Create shortcut
from the pop-up menu that appears.

6. You'll be prompted that the shortcut cannot be placed here, and
Windows will recommend placing it on the desktop instead. Press enter on
Yes.

7.A shortcut with the name App-Name Shortcut (example: Outlook Shortcut)
will appear on the desktop. You can leave this as-is, or rename it (I
usually remove the word Shortcut). And you can of course move the
shortcut to any folder as needed.

8. Now, just repeat for all the app shortcuts you need.

Hi again, Curtis. Where do you find "Sound card configuring" within Control
Panel, so I can experiment with this on my personal computer?

Thank you.

Bill, here is a puzzler, and though I've tried many times to get a
hotkey for this shortcut, it just will not work.
I have a "sound" shortcut on my desktop to go to sound card configuring
and all those dialogs, but for the life o' me I cannot get a hotkey to
work with it.
I had windows create it from within my control panel which it did, and
now all I want is a shortcut key. I have one for volume control, and
much else, and none is being used for another action but it just doesn't
let me. I've messed with permissions for myself in my computer of which
I am the administrator, but still with all read / write permissions all

Hi, Curtis. I don't have any ideas, but if you wish, and you are using JAWS,
I can write you privately with my phone number. I'll tandem into your
computer, and see if I can figure out what is going on.
