You don't have to be a tech to understand these instructions. Many blind people are not taught to explore and see how things are set up or how to translate instructions given to sighted people to those a blind person would use. Other people get training that teaches them to understand that a sighted user's instructions can often be used if the blind user knows how to translate them.

I don't know and I'm not assuming what you know. But I am saying that if you want to learn that skill, there are good training materials that will teach it. If you don'/t that's fine, but it isn't a question of having to have great technical knowledge to do and learn such things. It’s a question of how the person is taught.

I'm discussing this not to tell you to learn or not learn something. I'm discussing it because if people know this, they may be interested in learning how to translate sighted instructions into blind instructions for their own use and benefit and to help others.

I went to this site, it is poorly put together by someone who does not speak English fully I might add. So they tell you to use Alternatively, You can directly launch this page using "ms-settings:multitasking" command in RUN dialog box as mentioned here.” So why do they just not tell you how to change it out right instead of making one have to jump threw hoops to obtain the settings to change the Restoring Classic ALT+TAB behavior. So sharing a you tube video that tells you step by step how to fix this issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NeOnJ3RaQI

I do not have this update otherwise I would provide a step by step written guide for those who need text not audio guides. Thinking about my deaf-blind friends and friends who need a more clear precise guide for the fix because they are not computer techies! Cheers Heather

This is bound to become the next big "everyone's asking" question, and for good reason. So here's the answer so that everyone has it. If you do not have Windows 10 20H2 yet, and most don't, then please file this message for when you do get it, as everyone is going to eventually.

See article: [Tip] Disable and Remove Microsoft Edge Tabs Showing in ALT+Tab Screen in Windows 10

If you want to cut straight to the chase, search the page for "Open Settings" which are the first two words of Step 1 in the step-by-step instructions.

There is nothing improper about these instructions as far as clarity is concerned. The writer writes as a nonnative English speaker might, but he writes clearly. I think the problem you may be having is that, as usual, the instructions are written for sighted users. Ifd you expect a step-by-step set of instructions such as open this, tab this many times to this, etc. not having the article written in that way is not because the author communicates poorly. Is that what you expect? If so, stating that might result in someone providing such instructions.

I'm still not sure I understand what all the fuss is about.  Am I correct in assuming that this modified Alt-Tab behavior in Windows 10 20H2 only applies when opening the Edge browser?  If you don't open Edge, does Alt-Tab still cycle between open programs like it always has?  This article is very confusing.

Re: Restoring Classic ALT+TAB behavior in Windows 10, Version 20H2

Here are the instructions for restoring Alt-Tab to Classic switcher behavior


[Tip] Disable and Remove Microsoft Edge Tabs Showing in ALT+Tab Screen in Windows 10

- Last updated on October 31, 2020 by VG

This tutorial will help you in removing Microsoft Edge tabs displaying on ALT+Tab screen in Windows 10 and restoring classic ALT+Tab switcher behavior.

If you upgraded to newer version of Windows 10 (version 20H2 and later), you might have noticed that ALT+Tab programs list now shows all running tabs in Microsoft Edge web browser separately.

Let's discuss in details! You have opened more than one tab in Microsoft Edge web browser and you press ALT+Tab keys together to launch the built-in Windows program switcher screen to switch between running programs, you'll notice that Windows 10 now shows all running tabs in Microsoft Edge browser separately in the running programs list.

Following screenshot shows multiple tabs of Microsoft Edge browser displaying in ALT+Tab switcher screen:

In past, only the main program icon or shortcut thumbnail used to show in ALT+Tab dialog but now Windows 10 shows all tabs running in Microsoft Edge as separate programs. This feature was implemented in Windows 10 build 19042 which was released as Windows 10 version 20H2 recently.

This little change might please users who frequently use Microsoft Edge browser to visit websites but many Windows 10 users might find it annoying and want to get rid of this new feature.

Fortunately, Microsoft has provided an option to disable and remove this feature and force Windows 10 to only show a single instance or entry of Microsoft Edge browser in ALT+Tab list.

If you also want to turn off all Microsoft Edge tabs display in Windows 10 ALT+Tab screen, following steps will help you in preventing Windows 10 from showing all running tabs of Microsoft Edge in ALT+Tab UI:

1. Open Settings app from Start Menu or by pressing WIN+I keys together.

2. Now go to "System -> Multitasking" section.

PS: Alternatively, You can directly launch this page using "ms-settings:multitasking" command in RUN dialog box as mentioned here.

3. In right-side pane, look for "Alt + Tab" section. Remember this section will only appear in newer versions of Windows 10. If you are using an older version of Windows 10, "Alt + Tab" section will not appear.

Click on the drop-down box given under "Pressing Alt + Tab shows" option.

Now select "Open windows only" option to disable and remove Microsoft Edge tabs display in ALT+Tab screen.

That's it. Now press ALT+Tab hotkey and Windows 10 will no longer display all running tabs of Microsoft Edge in ALT+Tab screen. Only a single icon of Microsoft Edge will appear on ALT+Tab list.

PS: If you want to customize how many tabs of Microsoft Edge should Windows 10 display in ALT+Tab screen, you can select desired option from drop-down box. You can select 3 recent tabs or 5 recent tabs to display or you can select to display all running tabs of Microsoft Edge browser in ALT+Tab screen.

Hi Carolyn. I'm sure someone has already helped, but if not ... press and
hold the sleep/time button just underneath the 0, the oval key. Press the
number 2 once to get up to advanced time settings then hit confirm which is
the one to the right of 0. Victor says time format 12 hour, AM-PM. Then,
hit the number 8 to get down to 24 hour format. Hit confirm, and then press
and hold the sleep/time button again. That should do it..

Re: Folders Don't show up Under Programs (x86) Folder

64-bit software installs under C:\Program Files

32-bit software installs under C:\Program Files (x86)

and this has been the case for many, many years now.  Nothing has changed at all about that and I have done recent complete uninstalls and reinstalls of NVDA, which is 32-bit, and lands in the x86 folder when installed.

Folders Don't show up Under Programs (x86) Folder

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

For the past few weeks, for some reason, folders do not show up under the c:\program files (x86) folder. I am not sure quite when this started. It may have been associated with one of the recent Windows 10 updates, but I'm not sure. I have also tried to play with the settings under view/options/folder options under This PC to no avail.

Has anyone seen this recently and if so, how can it be rectified? Thanks for any help.

Hi all,

There are two ways to do this.

First, you can just use ctrl-d.

Second, if you want to be sure where the bookmark is going to be found and that it will show up there, use your alt key to get into the menus, arrow down to bookmarks and take a gander 'round in there. Change anything you think you need to chage.

How to have Jaws play a sound for an event

Teri McElroy
 

Hi
I am wondering if there's a way to have Jaws play a sound which will alert me when I'm in Word and I move between pages either to a new or previous page.
This could be as I am typing or moving around with my arrows.
I did this once a long time ago but can't find the notes on what I did. That time I had Jaws play a sound when I moved between headings in Word and in my mail program for when an attachment
was present. I really liked it because I didn't have to listen to Jaws saying heading 3 or whatever all the time. And as I arrowed up and down the list of emails I heard a sound when an email had an attachment.

So now, I'd like a sound when I move to a different page in word as I'm typing.

Is it speech and sound schemes or somewhere  else in Jaws I need to look at? Has anyone got any ideas on what the trigger would be for the sound to play when I
move to a new page?
Thanks for any ideas.

Teri
