Re: Closing Programs


I'll add that fn key plus another key or keys such as fn alt f4, fn 3, etc. keys perform different functions on different computers.  While I don't think trying fn alt f4 or fn JAWS or NVDA key f12 will change any settings or take any actions, you may not want to experiment, just in case.

Others may have comments.

Evidently, when you reset the computer, you set the fn key to the default so it is now on.  You may be able to turn it off with a software command which others may know.  If you hold the fn  key and then issue the time command, do you hear it?  How about holding it and closing a program?

My downstairs computer is an Asus M32CB desktop running Windows 10 and NVDA  After doing a windows reset, one of the problems is, it does not close programs with alt F4.  It seems to just minimize them.  I found this by using alt tab to rotate through running programs; and whatever I was using is still running.  Only way I can actually close a program is to use the system menu (alt spacebar) then choose close.  Anyone know how to get it back to where alt F4 closes stuff?

Also, NVDA key plus F12 is now silent.  I used to like that command to get the time quickly.

Thanks anybody for your suggestions.
