Really? I was led to believe it was a JAWS command. Well, it does work with JAWS; good it does with others too.

No, f12 is a Microsoft office command and works with any screen reader.

F12 is easy, but strictly a JAWS command.

Dear TerriLynne Pomeroy & List:

If your computer is acting up, no wonder you are frustrated!

Sounds like your windows 10 or Office 2016 is corrupt, or both.
shortcuts & edit boxes & files should not vanish suddenly.
Call MS Disability Support (800) 936-5900 I think and do a screen share with them.

Get used to ribbons, they are the way MS Office now works. What screen reader are you using? JAWS 18 has a setting for use ribbons, turn it on, you need it to successfully use ribbons. They are just a different way to navigate menus.
MS Disability support usually has the patience of a Saint and is good at fixing stuff, does not require you to have software support agreement with MS.

Hi Gene,
Unfortunately, I had a hard drive go south and had to move to windows 10 and office 2016. So, I am double frustrated.

Part of the problem may be Microsoft Office 2016. I hate the changes to Outlook. I looked for an older version, but was told that Microsoft has been scouring the web to get rid of older versions, to force upgrades. In addition, I couldn’t email this group directly. I had to reply to another message and change the message line. Which probably means some are not getting this message because they muted the thread. 😊 I really don’t know why the reply worked and sending the message didn’t, but it is just one more frustration.

I haven’t really learned to use ribbons, so Microsoft word frustrates me. Luckily, the f12 save is pretty easy, if I can just reform my habit.

And, in Windows 10, things just get randomly deleted. I was renaming an NLS book, and suddenly the edit field was gone. I went back to my list of books, and the book wasn’t there. And it isn’t in the recycle bin.

Windows also randomly removes shortcuts from my desktop. The most recent shortcut to be removed was the one to Outlook. I could still go to the search box and type in Outlook, and enter on it there, but along with the program Outlook, up came all of my e-mail messages with the outlook word in them. And the order was random. I had to search the list for the program.

I realize that it’s all doable, fixable, get used table, but it seems that nothing runs smoothly anymore.

I will just keep plugging along, but I, at least right now, really dislike Windows 10.

Why do you hate it? If it is a matter of doing things, you may find, by discussing such topics, that you find other ways you like more, perhaps being able to more or less duplicate the Windows 7 methods by using a utility that restores that interface where it has been changed. But if you use such utilities, make sure no functionality you want is impaired or lost. Whenever I see such discussions, that is my first question.

I definitely mean downgraded. I really hate Windows 10 and would happily go back to something else.

Hi. I'm assuming you mean, upgraded to windows 10? What happens when you attempt to save the document using control S?

I have recently downgraded to Windows 10 and am using Office 2016 and JAWS 18. I have no trouble opening a new document in Microsoft Word, but can’t figure out how to save it. Any help would be appreciated.
