Hi Peter,

I don't know that this will help, but if I get that problem, I do a shift-tab and then it seems to work properly. If you listen carefully, you will probably hear something like "name closed" which means you are not directly in the list of files and folders. A shift-tab will put you in the correct place for arrowing up and down through files.

Hello Rod and All,

I have managed to arrange my folders under my user name in a list view as
I like it. However, I still hear extraneous speech such as "a-h", "i-p",
"q-z". How do I stop this?

My machine has Windows 8.1 which I believe is very similar to Windows 10.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi Butch,

I assume you have not, as yet, configured your system to display all folders
in list view or detailed view rather than what is set by default on a new
installation, namely, icons, and I can't remember whether they are small or
medium or large.
Anyway, regardless how they are set, you will neeed to configure this by
opening any folder on your system, set it up the way you like it, and then
make it global.
This is done by opening any folder on your system, in the View tab, opened with Alt-V, L, and then you'll will get a drop-down with the display options
arranged, in typical confusing Windows 10 fashion, as a grid of options.
Arrowing left and right, up and down, find detailed view, and press Enter.
Okay, after doing this, you'll want to return to the View tab by pressing
Alt-V, and then tabbing through other options for customizing your View,
namely, whether you want your files and folders sorted ascending or
descending, etc, by name, date, and the latter is what I prefer, in contrast
to the Windows default on all systems, but it's your choice.
Again, once you pick each setting, you press Enter to activate it, and this
often closes the tab;
If not, however, you can always Escape out.
Finally, you can set the settings to apply to your whole system by finding
the traditional Folder options dialog which you'll recall from Windows 7.
This is also in the View tab and the shortcut is Alt-V, Y, and press Enter. As in the old days, once the Folder options dialog is open, Ctrl-tab brings the View tab to focus, and you can tab to the Apply button to globalize your
settings.
As a rule, everything that was in Windows 7 in present in Windows 10;
They're just in the ribbons of the application you're using, including
Explorer.
I hope this was helpful.

Good luck,

Rod

Subject: file explorer in win 10

Hello, using win 10 and Jaws, when I open a folder in file explorer, the
highlight is in the middle of the list instead of at the top. Then as I
am arrowing through the list, the highlight will jump around on me. I
have never experienced anything like this. Is there a setting I need to
change? Is there a tutorial on how to use this win 10 file explorer. All
help is appreciated.

Butch
