Thanks Mike. I need to check with my friend because he's been
playing the game longer than I have and I know there are limits on
the number of players that can be active at any one time but I don't
remember what the limits are, maybe I'm just trying to activate too
many players and that's why I don't have the okay button.

Another thing I want to try is to load the default settings of jaws
2018, maybe that'll help too if one of the settings I changed is the
one causing the problem.

Have you tried exporting your
J18 settings, then importing them into J2020? You could try
this just to see if that will help. But, if you decide to do
this backup your J2020 settings beforehand as well so if
importing the J18 settings doesn't help you can go back to
your original J2020 settings. Steps are below:
You export all your settings by
going into the Jaws context menu with, Jaws key + J, if you
run Jaws from the system tray. Then go to, Utilities /
/ Export settings submenu and press enter. Now arrow down to,
Export settings..., press enter, now make sure that the,
Export all settings radio button
is selected. Tab to, next, press spacebar. You're now in a
dialog to select a name & save location, but the file will
already be named and the default
location is the desktop, so tab to finish , press enter and
all your settings for that Jaws version will be saved to the
desktop. After you install Jaws
just import this settings file.
Take care and stay safe. Mike.
