Gene, I never had success doing these searches. This is true even after a reboot.

Have you rebooted since the problem started? Have you done this before without problems? When strange problems occur, one of the first things to try if no solution is evident is to reboot.

Hello, List,

I use Windows 7 and my screen reader is System Access.

I have a large list of music folders, each one containing various tracks. I want to search for a specific folder, and when I locate it, want to right click on it to get to the context menu. I'd move down to Play with the VLC player.

There's no problem finding the folder, but the context menu is not what it should show. The player is not shown. What I would expect is that the up or down-arrows would permit moving among the folders. The arrows do nothing. I can enter the folder and see the tracks. The arrows permit moving among them.

If I back out to the folder, the arrows remain frozen.

I try using the standard Windows search. As said, it does not yield the right results.

Is there another way to do searches?

Is there anything I can do to permit the player to work as it should?

I will very much appreciate any help you may have.

Joe Giovanelli, W2PVY
