Steve,

Thanks for the heads up. Just checked and then it updated. Chrome used to
update automatically but over the past few months I have to go to help, then
about, and then it updates. Does yours update automatically?

Best,
Al

Try pressing Insert Control V while in Chrome. This should announce your
current version, HTH

Thanks Glen, I did as you suggested pressed alt, F and down arrow to help
and opened about, but poor is me, I still don't know how to tell if Chrome
has updated to the latest release. So sorry that I seem to be so infantile
about all of this. But sometimes it seems that I need someone to hold my
hand to get through what others see so easily.

If you do alt + F and press H or down arrow to help and open help, about is
in that list.

Mine didn't, I had to go into about to start the update.
It hangs on checking for updates for a while, but eventually it reads
a percentage.

When you launch Google Chrome, it should update to the latest version
automatically.

Hi,
Here's Eric's message about the Chrome update.

All,

In the March update of JAWS, there were changes made to prepare for
the release of Chrome build 74 and higher. If you have Chrome
installed, and go to the about box, you should get that update
installed now. Here is what was posted in the release notes and I
think a great reason to move to Chrome if you have not already.
Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome After
working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce
that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for
release by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard
will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer
for years. The functionality is included for all users of JAWS and
Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of
items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and pasting them into
Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.
Regards,
Eric

*** The next JAWS monthly update should be out by the end of April.
