The fastest way up there is
control + insert then tab twice and arrow your heart out.

I have tried what I thought might do it, but I have only succeeded with brute force SHIFT+TAB (or TAB) until I've circled back to hearing the pane name announced for the one I know I was working in, then up/down arrowing to another.  There has to be an easier way.  And I'll probably dope slap myself once someone else says what it is!

Hi. Thanks for this detailed explanation. But the problem is that when

I open the mail app I'm placed immediately on the add account button.

It does not change even if I tab many times. Following is the window

that appears:

 

"Mail

Welcome to Mail

Add your accounts to keep up to date across devices.

Add account Button

Go to inbox Button  unavailable".

 

 

Thanks

Re: Logitech K780 Keyboard

Kevin Minor
 

Hi.

 

I have this keyboard, and I was able to get it working with no sighted assistance. I paired it in April, so I might not remember it exactly, but I think you press and hold FN with either F1, F2, or F3 depending on which of those three you want for the shortcut.

 

When you use this keyboard, you have to hit FN along with the function keys to get those to work the way you expect. There’s a program to get things to work as expected, but it’s difficult to get set up, though not impossible.

 

Another thing is this keyboard doesn’t have an applications key, and some programs specifically use that rather than SHIFT+F10. There’s a nice program called Sharp Keys to remap a key to something else. I use the NUMPAD ENTER key as the applications key.

 

That’s all I can think of. I really like this keyboard, and with the ability to have it paired with up to three devices, it’s really versatile.

 

Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Re: The new 'best Windows 10 antivirus' might surprise you

 

It doesn't surprise me.  Windows Security (AKA Windows Defender) has been in the top tier of security suites since very shortly after its introduction as implemented under Windows 8 and later.  Its actual position in the top 10, along with that of other competitors, does move from test cycle to test cycle, but there's nothing unusual about that.

Look at the most recent testing results from the following antivirus/security testing labs, along with the historical results from the past several years if you want to see how Windows Security/Defender has been performing.  Windows Security has been solidly in the top 10, often top 5, and frequently beats out several well-known competitors that one must pay for.

Re: MS Edge

Hi Don,
 
If you're running Jaws, do you have Forms mode set to automatic in Edge?  If so, this'll make a difference how you navigate Edge settings.
 
Try opening Settings, now tab 1 time and now down arrow and you should hear, Settings Categories, press enter, and now try turning off the virtual cursor with, Insert + Z, now try down arrowing to the list settings categories.  I don't know why this is happening in only Edge on my computer, but Jaws is not entering and exiting forms mode like it does with Brave and Chrome.

Re: MS Edge

 

Does anyone happen to know if there is a keyboard shortcut that will throw you back from wherever you might be in a given MS-Edge settings pane back to the list of panes so that you can up/down arrow?

I have tried what I thought might do it, but I have only succeeded with brute force SHIFT+TAB (or TAB) until I've circled back to hearing the pane name announced for the one I know I was working in, then up/down arrowing to another.  There has to be an easier way.  And I'll probably dope slap myself once someone else says what it is!

Hi. Joseph>
there's just a little tip here. if you go to the same place through startmenu\settings\system\about, it will be well supported by NVDA.
but if you want to have access to the same place and items through hitting an alt+enter while landing this PC, NVDA will just keep quiet, in such a case, as you press tab, you won't move at all. moreover, nothing special is read out to you. but settings. it really sounds screwy, because if you visit the same area, from settings\system\about, there will be no problems at all. as you tab, NVDA will ordinarily move forward and read out the focused items in a clear manner.
would you mind giving it a try to learn more about it?
Take care.

Hi.
I've just updated to the latest version. "20H2" I've just discovered a
problem with the latest version of NVDA. as you do an alt+enter on
This PC, you won't be able to see the same system properties you could
previously see. instead, there will be settings which is not mainly supported by NVDA.
you can't read the information shown via NVDA. as I switched to JAWS,
it did much better. JAWS nearly read most information existed there.
but NVDA kept quiet. object navigation didn't do the trick either.
I hope Josef will fix it as soon as possible.
a little patch in windows app essentials might do the trick.

Hello everyone,

Windows 10 October 2020 Update (20H2) is now available. Highlights
of this release include Alt+Tab changes, subtle changes to Start
menu, tablet interface improvements (including no more ‘tablet
mode” on computers with no touchscreens), and under the hood
changes. See the following Microsoft blog for details:

<https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2020/10/20/whats-new-in
- the-windows-10-october-2020-update/>

As we always do, a new feature update release means:

1. Please wait until “Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2”
is offered via Windows Update. Like recent feature updates,
it’ll be an optional update unless you are using Windows 10
Version 1809 or 1903, which are going out of support very soon.
2. As always, please back up before you apply the feature update.
3. Just because Version 20H2 is available doesn’t mean everyone
will get it today, especially given that not all users were
offered Version 2004 (May 2020 Update).
4. Speaking of Version 2004, Version 20H2 is Version 2004 with
additional features.
5. The last regular cumulative update announcement for Version
2004 will be sent on December 8, 2020. Between now and then,
you’ll see 19041(2) in KB alert subject line.

And with that, let the rollout begin!

Cheers,

Re: MS Edge

 

For additional clarity, once you've opened Edge Settings, you're in the Search Settings edit box.  Tab once, and you will be in the list of panes, and I can't say where because it will remember where you were last.  Use up/down arrow to traverse that list, then tab over into the pane items once you have selection focus on the one you want.

Re: MS Edge

 

If you really want a home button and home page, then open the Edge Menu (ALT+F), Settings (S), then navigate to the Appearance Pane and look for the Customize Toolbar setting.  There you can make the home button visible and set a home page.

If what you're looking for is a default page to show up every time you start Edge, and this is not a home page, then do as Betsy mentions and instead of the Appearance Pane go to the On Startup Pane.  There you can make the startup behavior one of three things using radio buttons (and edit boxes for the last choice after the radio button is activated):

  1. Open a new tab.
  2. Continue where you left off (Edge will restart the next time with all the windows and tabs in those windows you were using when you shut it down last time).
  3. Open a specific page or set of pages.

I was just about to ask the same question. I was able to find it by typing startup into the search box.

Re: Ready, set, check: October 2020 Update is now live #branchprogression #WinTen20H2

Hi.
I've just updated to the latest version. "20H2" I've just discovered a
problem with the latest version of NVDA. as you do an alt+enter on
This PC, you won't be able to see the same system properties you could
previously see. instead, there will be settings which is not mainly
supported by NVDA. you can't read the information shown via NVDA. as I
switched to JAWS, it did much better. JAWS nearly read most
information existed there. but NVDA kept quiet. object navigation
didn't do the trick either.
I hope Josef will fix it as soon as possible.
a little patch in windows app essentials might do the trick.
Take care.

Update is now live #WinTen20H2 #BranchProgression

Hello everyone,

Windows 10 October 2020 Update (20H2) is now available. Highlights
of this release include Alt+Tab changes, subtle changes to Start
menu, tablet interface improvements (including no more ‘tablet
mode” on computers with no touchscreens), and under the hood
changes. See the following Microsoft blog for details:


https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2020/10/20/whats-new-in-the-windows-10-october-2020-update/

<https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2020/10/20/whats-new-in-the-windows-10-october-2020-update/>

As we always do, a new feature update release means:

1. Please wait until “Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2”
is offered via Windows Update. Like recent feature updates,
it’ll be an optional update unless you are using Windows 10
Version 1809 or 1903, which are going out of support very soon.
2. As always, please back up before you apply the feature update.
3. Just because Version 20H2 is available doesn’t mean everyone
will get it today, especially given that not all users were
offered Version 2004 (May 2020 Update).
4. Speaking of Version 2004, Version 20H2 is Version 2004 with
additional features.
5. The last regular cumulative update announcement for Version
2004 will be sent on December 8, 2020. Between now and then,
you’ll see 19041(2) in KB alert subject line.

And with that, let the rollout begin!

Cheers,

Joseph

Just a query on forms of confirmation of likely cause for a repeat system crash

Jacob Kruger
 

Hi there


I am running windows 10 pro 64 bit, with latest updates to version 2004 installed on a custom built desktop PC.


Anyway, I am one of those people who installs and uninstalls way too many different software packages over time, and thus, I try to go with a brand new, clean installation of windows roundabout every six months, and, it had been slightly longer than that when last week, as I was trying to install some versions of the java JDK and JRE, to try something with android studio - the installation seemed inaccessible in the first place - no real surprise there - but, also seemed to just have locked up.


Anyway, to cut a long story short, after that, my windows 10 machine pretty much refused to reboot into normal windows startup, and, using smart phone software initially, and then sighted help, it was showing a form of wizard on screen, telling me it was attempting to diagnose system problems - this would allow me to launch narrator using the standard narrator keystroke, once I knew what was happening, FWIW.


Anyway, after a little while of trying to get this to sort itself out, including waiting long enough for it to tell me it had been unable to fix problems, I went ahead and did a completely fresh, clean installation of windows 10 again - there only had to get a bit of help to get it to boot from the flash drive had prepped with the contents of the windows 10 2004 version .iso file, on another PC, but, the installation ran through fine.


Anyway, that was roundabout a week ago, and then, guess what I tried to do again yesterday...install another instance of the java JDK from a file am sure have used fine in the past, and, the exact same issue arose on this relatively clean installation of windows - had only reinstalled software that use on a regular basis, and made my standard configuration changes.


Anyway, following the prior advice/opinion of my sighted techie friend who actually assembled this desktop PC for me in the first place, I got hold of a replacement SSD drive to install the OS on - upgrading from a 247GB drive to a 475GB drive now, what with technological evolution making it more or less the medium-entry-level SSD could get hold of today for roundabout the same price I paid for the older one a couple of years ago.


On a side note, yes, I have another data-storage drive in this PC, which is a 2TB rotational drive, and try to primarily just run the OS and software off the SSD, for performance, etc., but anyway.


Anyway, just want opinions if this does in fact sound like hard drive failure, or possibly another form of hardware failure, or operating system installation corruption relating to running windows 10 64 bit on it, or if it could indeed relate to happening to have been installing similar software packages at time periods a week or so apart, when the failure happened to happen both times?


TIA

I initially just want to use it on my windows 10 laptop, I have read up on it but seams  as though it could be a bit difficult, can it be done are there any known keystrokes to achieve it.
