2. Press, Alt + F, then the letter, O, for folder options,
If pressing the letter, O, won't open folder options, after you press, Alt + F, tab a couple of times to, change folder options, and press enter.  
now, Control + Tab, to the, View page / tab.
3. Tab to the, advanced settings tree view, now press the letter, U , until you hear Jaws report, Use checkboxes to select items...., if this is, On, press
the spacebar to uncheck / turn it off.
4. Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.

Subject: [TechTalk] Removing Checks in File Explorer

Hi, on Windows 10, while navigating File Explorer, can someone remind
me how to make JAWS stop saying “checked” after every file and folder?
I just want it to read the file or folder title. I can’t remember how
I did this on my main machine. Thanks for any help.--Joe
