Thanks for the tip. I had forgotten about this hot key. After trying it out in various programs, it gives version information on them.

Try pressing Insert Control V while in Chrome. This should announce your current version, HTH

Thanks Glen, I did as you suggested pressed alt, F and down arrow to help and opened about, but poor is me, I still don't know how to tell if Chrome has updated to the latest release. So sorry that I seem to be so infantile about all of this. But sometimes it seems that I need someone to hold my hand to get through what others see so easily.

If you do alt + F and press H or down arrow to help and open help, about is in that list.

Mine didn't, I had to go into about to start the update.
It hangs on checking for updates for a while, but eventually it reads a
percentage.

When you launch Google Chrome, it should update to the latest version
automatically.

Hi,
Here's Eric's message about the Chrome update.

All,

In the March update of JAWS, there were changes made to prepare for the
release of Chrome build 74 and higher. If you have Chrome installed, and
go to the about box, you should get that update installed now. Here is
what was posted in the release notes and I think a great reason to move
to
Chrome if you have not already.
Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome
After working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to
announce that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled
for release by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard
will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer for
years. The functionality is included for all users of JAWS and Fusion
2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of items, and even
tables from the Chrome browser and pasting them into Email messages or
Documents without losing the formatting.
Regards,
Eric

*** The next JAWS monthly update should be out by the end of April.
