how do you bring file to focus?At 08:57 AM 5/27/2019, you wrote:

Good morning,

You will need to change how Windows opens up PDF files. This is the way to
do that.

1 - Bring focus to any PDF file and hit your application key or shift F10
2 - Arrow up to properties and hit enter.
3 - Shift tab once to change and hit enter
4 - Tab once to the list of applications and change it to acrobat and then
tab to Ok and then tab to ok and then you are done.

the microsoft doesn't know how to use acrobat to work with even their own

Hi Gerald,
I really wouldn't depend on IE for anything anymore. You'll have to
switch eventually.
Your experience really will be better with Google Chrome or perhaps
IE is not supportted anymore.
the learning curve might be a little stiff but, better to move on now.
I can't even get my IE to come up anymore. I moved on to Chrome a
couple of years ago and its pretty good.

It appears that there is noAdobe plug in listed on the IE Add-ons
Manager, which explains why IE is unable to read PDF documents. In
fact, there are no add-ons listed at all.?? Fortunately, Adobe
Acrobat seems to work with Chrome and Firefox, so I guess I will have
to use one of these browsers to read PDF documents.?? Are there any
other PDF readers that work with IE that are JAWS accessible?

You probably will have to select all add-ons to find the adobe
plug-in. Once disabled IE will go ahead and call the external Adobe

Using JAWS 2019 with Windows 10, I cannot get Adobe Acrobat to work
with IE.?? When I access a PDF document in IE, I get a page with an
open parent document button, but when I click on it, nothing
happens.?? On the Preferences mdialog, the enable protected mode
check box is unchecked.??
What other settings do I need to change to get Acrobat to work with
