Re: A Question about chrome settings
Glenn / Lenny
My solution is to go to the Google chrome icon on the desktop, and press alt + enter
On the first field, the target, press the end key, and then a space.
Then paste in the URL you want to open.
Shift tab to apply and space bar, and then shift tab to okay or close and enter.
This works for FF too, and maybe IE.

Subject: [jaws-users] A Question about chrome settings
I was trying to help a friend set up her chrome.
In the tutorial from a list member, It said:
Next Important heading:
On Start up.
Here is where you put in your URL that you want to show as soon as you start Chrome.
There are three radio buttons to pick from, but I chose to open with a specific page or pages, which is the third radio button.
Under this, you can type in the URL of the web site that you want to open when you start Chrome.
We chose the third button but could not figure out how to enter a web address.
Underneath my checkboxes is the address for google, but JAWS does not list that as being in an edit box.
I set Chrome up so long ago that I can’t remember what I did.
We experimented with the options that followed, more actions, add a new page and use current page, I think it said. She saw no edit box.
When I google, I find the following directions:
• Open Chrome.
• Click the overflow icon that looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
• Click to open the Settings menu.
• Scroll down and click on Advanced Settings.
• Select Open a specific page or set of pages under On Startup.
• Select Set pages.
Obviously as a keyboard user, I can’t get to that overflow icon as they called it with JAWS and this opens a menu of options not available from the settings menu from the alt key menu.
What are we missing?
A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it isn't open.
