Re: The scroll lock


Thank you.  So it doesn’t really help us with navigation or anything like that?  I appreciate the explanation.

It is used when the computer is booting and folks would hit that key to stop it from scrolling text past the top of the screen.

I think it also paused a print job, but not sure about that.

It is mostly a hold-over from the old days of computers.

Probably a silly question, but what does the scroll lock do and is it of any use to those of us using Jaws exclusively?  Thank you.
