Re: Using Insert F10 instead of Alt Tabbing

Hi Robin;

Most of that stuff you can alt f4 out of without doing any damage. For example: Synaptics Pointing Device Driver you can turn that off and your touchpad will remain on. When I first started using win10 this and other programs that were loaded at startup kept showing up in this list. Since they were just taking up memory and annoying to arrow through I turned them off without any consequences.

Subject: [jaws-users] Using Insert F10 instead of Alt Tabbing



I recently learned about using Insert F10 to switch between programs.  This seems like it will be helpful when I have a lot open and alt tabbing would take longer.  What I’m curious about is stuff showing up in this view that I don’t know about and seems like it adds clutter.  I’m on a company laptop, so I’m guessing this is extra stuff my company is running in the background, but I’m wondering if this is similar to what others see.   Here is an example:


I’m in Windows 10 with JAWS 2019.  The only programs I have launched are JAWS and my Outlook inbox.  Alt Tabbing only shows my desktop and the inbox, since I have JAWS running in the system tray.  When I press Insert F10, this is what I get.

Do others see stuff running in what I’d call the background that is listed here?
