MessageThat's the other reason I don't use Windows key D much at all. I don't 
need to hear the item number spoken all the time. This seems to be the default 
though in Window-Eyes.

  Yeah.. there's some difference about the way they're handled. Totally agreed 
on that. My question is, I heard there was a way to do this for all folders 
like my documents and my computer. The windows d thing that is. Anyone have any 
idea? And have you noticed, that when you press windows d and go to the 
desktop, the item number is spolen as you arrow through them? Like if you go to 
my computer on my desktop for instance, it would say 2 of 30.

      Hi Darren,

      Windos + D is a bit different here than windows + m.  If you press 
Windows + m to get to the desktop and then press it again nothing happens.  if 
you press windows + d to get to the desktop then press it again it takes you to 
the start button.

      Not sure if that makes any difference or not but its something I noticed.

      Rick

        Good point, But as I've said before, win key d and win key m both take 
you to the desktop and one says folder listview, and the other says listview. 
hmmm.

          It's a window class issue.  there is a difference in a folder view 
list view, and a list view.  A list view is nothing more than items virtically 
on the screen where as a folder view list view, is a list view where the items 
can be arranged either virtically or horizontal/virtically.  In other words 
your desktop would be a folder view list view as you can get items both going 
virtically or horizontally, or even both.


          Chris.
