Re: A surprising difference between desk top and laptop command

Messages from others have discussed that question. I haven't tried to remember the ways in which it could be done that may be accessible to blind users. If I need to at some point, I should easily be able to find information in the archives. There is a command that might work, or there is making a change in the BIOS, which isn't accessible to blind people. I believe I saw another way that might work but I don't recall it enough to explain it.

How do you change that? Because alt f4 doesn't work, and the alt key for
other things. Somebody fixed it, but then it went back to misbehaving. So,
I'm using a keyboard hooked up to it. I don't know what I do to make it do
this. Pam.

That's likely because you have to have the fn keys not function when the fn
key is not depressed. At least that's why I think this is happening, but
this qquestion may give us help in determining if that is the problem. Does
alt f4 work properly to close programs? I'm not sure what other function
keys and commands may not work properly now. But failure of alt f4 to close
programs is a strong indicator, when combined with what you are asking
about, that this is a fn key problem.

Hi List, I recently bought a Lenovo Windows 10 laptop and loaded Jaws 2020
on it.



I was surprised to find that when I press Insert plus F4 on its keyboard, it
goes to a print command. However, when I issue that command from an attached
desk top keyboard it does unload Jaws as it should.



Have any of you experienced this?



Sincerely, Vicky V
