So, Control+Windows+Enter opens Narrator, but what closes
it?

Pam,
I don't know very much about Narrator, but I did know where
the control, windows enter keys were, and that was all I
needyh to just turn on Narrator, just so I could get through
the rest of the set up, and then I wanted to install JAWS.

Do you actually know how to use narrator? That may be the
problem. I tried, a long time ago, to use it, but I have
not got a clue about it. Pam.

Gene,
I already asked Best buy if I or them could install my
Network information for me, and they said I need to be home
by my Wi-Fi in order to do this. I just might try to turn
on Narrator when I am at Best Buy to see if it will work or
not, because if it doesn't work, I don't know what is my
next step!
LOL!

I don't know what you can arrange, but it may be that the
store from which you purchase the computer from would have
someone do it but I don't know just what you are asked and
if you need to provide information you wouldn't want others
to know. I also don't know if the store would charge to do
it.Narrator shouldn't automatically turn off.

Gene,
Several people told me to use Narrator, and that is what I
did, but everytime I turned Narrator on, it would completely
turn right back off, and so that is why I say Narrator was
no help to me at all. I don't have any idea why Narrator
was like that though, as I have never worked with Narrator
before. I will try to use Narrator again when I pick up my
Laptop this coming Tuesday, and see how it works this time.
If it doesn't work this time, I have no speech, so there
for, I won't be able to set up the Laptop.

I haven't gone through the setup procedure when you first
run a new computer. I doubt you can install anything until
you go through it. We don't know why you had the problems
you had before, but Narrator may not have been the problem.
Whenever I see this question discussed, those who describe
what they do say they use Narrator.

Gene,
Ok this makes sense. I do know the information from my
Router to enter it, matter of fact, now that I finally
thought about it, I can probably connect the Laptop to my
Wi-FI just like I do when I connected my iPhone using my
network password and security number. My Modem and Router
is so old, and out dated as I've had it since 2009, and I
probably need a new one soon. Do you know if I can install
Jaws as I turn on the Laptop, or do I need to use Narrator?
Last week when I tried to work with the other Laptop,
Narrator wasn't any help at all.

No, but when you connect your laptop to the WIFI, you will
have to enter information on your laptop to allow it to
connect. The laptop will see your router but when you tell
it to connect, it will ask for your security key.
I'm not sure if it asks for anything else.

HI Gene,
System Defender sounds like it will be enough for me. Now
though, speaking about Wi-Fi, my current PC is connected to
my modem and Router, but I do know or so I've been told by
ATT back in 2009, I do have WI-FI connections with this
Modem and Router, but I'm now wondering will I need to do
something to my Modem or Router in order to connect my new
Laptop to
Wi-Fi?

As far as I know, you won't have to set up security if all
you want to do is use the program Mivcrosoft provides with
Windows. As I recall, its system Defender.

You may want to use something in addition such as Malware
Bytes but System Defender is a highly rated program and you
will be unlikely to need something else unless you want to
use something like Malwaare Bytes.

You will have to go through some sort of procedure as has
been discussed here when you first use the computer. Aside
from what you are discussing, the only thing I can think of
is to set up your computer to work with your WIFI, unless at
home, you are going to connect your computer to your router
by cable. I don't know enough about how you set up your
computer to work with your WIFI to discuss it. When I had
my modem set up here, the serviceman set up my laptop to
work with it. I think AT&T does that for customers when a
router is connected by them.

Hi All,
I'm just curious if Windows Ten is already installed on my
Laptop, what might be left that I would need to do? I know I
will need to set up an email program, install my screen
reader, set up security though. Just so I know what to
expect when I bring home my Laptop. I know how to plug it
in though! LOL!
Janet

Peace Be With You.
