Re: alt 1 through 6

Mr. Ed

Hi Miriam,

Open an email first then try the alt + 1, alt +2 and so on. You have to have a message open before it will work.

See? Tom now has alt 1 though 6 in Outlook 2016 with the new update?  He has it, but I don’t.

Subject: [jaws-users] Possible Bug In File Explorer In New Jaws Update


Hello, everyone.


As you know, I just updated to the latest build of Jaws 2019 on this Windows 10 PC.


Most things seem to be working well, and I’m very glad to have the Alt 1 through 6 commands available for reading Outlook 2016 message fields.


However, I might have discovered a bug in File Explorer with the new Jaws update.


When in a folder list view, I used to be able to create a new folder using the alt control N command.  I found this to be quite handy and efficient.


While I can still create a new folder by finding the option in the file explorer menus, it seems like the alt control N command is no longer working.


Can anyone else check for this bug, and let us know if it is being experienced on other Windows 10 computers with the latest Jaws update.
