That hotkey is a toggle, so it turns it on and off.

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.
