Settings – well it’s completely up to you.
Mostly what I did is get rid of a lot of stuff. Most of the modern
Universal-style apps are useless to me, so I just cleared them out. Set folder
views to details. Tightened up the privacy settings a bit. Nothing at all to
do with JAWS or being a blind user though. It’s a matter of personal
preference, and all I can suggest is that you play around with Windows 10 for
a while, and see what you like, and what you don’t like. It’s quite
customisable really if you know what you want to achieve, do some google
searching if a method isn’t immediately obvious and you will probably find a
tutorials, there are the guides from VIP software dealing with the taskbar and
File Explorer. Those I found quite useful.
Another useful thing is the list of run
commands. This isn’t exclusive to Windows 10, but I think it’s particularly
useful for blind users because, if you become accustomed to it, along with the
Windows search box, virtually eliminates the need for most of the
windows menus. You can use your computer like a boss (or at least, as quickly
as a lot of sighted people can) once you learn to just type a few keystrokes
to get where you want.
