Paulette, as a new Jaws user, I'm not to best to help you but a tip I can
pass on in respect of searching within word is that it is simpler to use the
search and replace command rather than the "find" command.
So, instead of using control  for "find", use control H, which is the
shortcut for "search and replace". This means that if you want to repeat the
search, you just shift tab twice, or maybe three times, and press enter and
it rtepeats the "find". 
I don't recognise many of the problems you are experiencing, which is why I
have not responded and, as a new Windows 10, Office 365 and Jaws user, I'm
still on a stepp learning curve myself. 
All I can say is that all your Microsoft commands should operate as they
used to Window-eyes. So, when you want to open a document you have created,
you should be able to open Word, press control o for open and then tab twice
to see all your recently opened documents.
I am wondering if you too have recently updated to Windows 10?  
I have also found the short tutorial designed for Window-eyes users
migrating to Jaws very helpful.   muysebut when I havyou are probably better
some tips

Thanks so much for your rapid response. So far, you are the only one who has
graciously answered some of my questions. I found out that the reason I
couldn't read documents was that when I tabbed through the choices, I had to
stop on something about, shell, then arrow down through the list. Why on
earth I had to hear shell in order to do this, I have no idea. Also, I still
can't stop Jaws from going into 40 minute mode. It is quite frustrating.
Also, I found that I am unable to search a document for a word. I tried
searching for the word, mode, and I was able to do it once by using control
f, but after using it one time, when I tried to search using the exact same
key strokes again, it wouldn't search. Someone please help. Thanks.

Paulette

Paulette, when it comes to Word and Jaws, you should be using the standard
Windows command you already know.  Example, Ctrl-O brings up the Open
dialogue and you can type in the name of whichever file you wish to open.
First letter navigation should also be possible once the Open dialogue is
invoked.  In essence, you do not need a specialised Jaws keystroke to find
stuff in Word.  Oh well, I don't use whatever keystrokes Window-Eyes
scripted for Word; I just use what Windows has to offer me and it works like
a charm.  

Also, you can press the Windows key to launch the Search Edit Box.  Here,
type "documents" without the quotes of course.  Once Documents has focus,
press <enter> and you can use FIRST LETTER navigation to find your file.
once you find the file you wish to open, press <enter> and, if it's a Word
file, the file will open in Word.

To read E-mail, launch your mail reader--Outlook, or whatever E-mail client
you use.  Press <enter> on the message you wish to read.  Sometimes, reading
may not begin from the top.  In that instance, press ctrl-home to get to the
top, then use Insert-Down Arrow to read your mail.  

You can customize how you want stuff done when in the mail reader.  Press
Insert-V, go through the various list of customisations  and select the ones
that meet your needs.  Be patient as you customise the look and feel for
mail reading purposes.  Remember to save your settings when done!

When you talk about control panel analogous to that of Window-Eyes, what
exactly are you trying to accomplish in Jaws?  Jaws's approach is quite
different from that of GW Micro's Window-Eyes!  Example:  Insert-J will put
you in the Jaws Context Menu and you can perform some customisations here
using your up and down arrow keys to go through the list of what's possible
and following the prompts.  

I can't fathom why Jaws would keep running in 40-minute mode when you have
already entered an authorization code.  For that one, consider giving V F O
or whatever name it goes by a call.  

Hmm, I'm not sure I'll consider joining the Jaws mailing list.  For one
thing, their moderators are not as tolerant as this list is.  I'd say ask
your questions here and I believe that the brilliant minds here will step up
to the plate.  I don't recall the Jaws users mailing list subscription info,
I do know, however, that the list is on groups.io.  If you type Jaws Users
Mailing List into Google to perform a search, quite a few of them should
come up fast and furious.

I trust the foregoing helps some; others will no doubt chip in and before I
wake up from my not-so-dreamy sleep, you will be a Jaws guru and whiz!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
