Hi George,

That's exactly what I did, but when I got to the license, and pressed the
spacebar on the accept button, it took me to the what do you want to keep
dialog box.

Once there, I ended not being able to select any other option then to lose

I did this in two ways, first by using the extracted ISO file the media
creation tool downloaded and created on an external drive, then by using the
media creation tool by itself, and it took me to that same dialog box.

Tomorrow I'm going to try to install the software from the root directory,
and see if that helps,if I get the same restrictive dialog box, I'm going to
consider it a wash, and proceed.

Worse case scenario, I have to start over.  LOL.

Hi Folks,

Running Windows 10 Pro, with Jaws 17, latest build.

I’m trying to upgrade to the newest anniversary edition of Windows 10,
which, I guess would be called and update, but when I do, I get a dialog box
asking me what to keep.

Jaws is telling I have three options, and it’s a checkbox and the three
options are to keep personal data and apps, just keep settings, or keep

The checkbox seems to be stuck on Nothing, and it won’t let me change.

I thought this was Jaws specific, but when I tried with NVDA, I got the same

Can anyone advise on how I should proceed.

I would hate to lose everything, especially my data.

Any help would be appreciated.
