Re: Display Settings.

Here's something I had saved. Maybe there is a clue.

Windows XP and JAWS



This topic discusses settings changes we recommend you make when using 
JAWS

in Windows XP Home or Professional. You must be logged in with

administrative rights to make several of these changes.



Many of these settings are changed within Control Panel. To open Control

Panel, press the WINDOWS KEY to open the Start Menu, move to Control 
Panel,

and press ENTER. Depending on your system settings, Control Panel either

opens in a separate window, or the Control Panel items open as a 
sub-menu.



We recommend making changes in the following areas:

. Display Properties

. Folder Options

. Start Menu

. Windows Explorer

. System Performance



Display Properties



1. From the Control Panel, move to "Display" and press Enter.

2. From the themes combo box, select Windows XP.

3. In the List of backgrounds on the Desktop page, choose Bliss.

4. Set Position to "Stretch".

5. In the Screen Saver combo box on the Screen Saver page, press HOME to

select none.

6. On the Appearance page, set Windows and Buttons to Windows classic 
style.

7. Set Color Scheme to Windows Standard.

8. Set Font to normal.

9. Close the dialog.



Note: After making these changes, the Display page Themes combo box says

"Modified Theme".



Folder Options

1. From the Control Panel, press ALT+T to go to the Tools menu

2. Press O for Folder Options.

3. From the Tasks radio button group, select Use Windows Classic folders

4. (Optional):

A. On the View page, move to the Advanced Settings tree view.

B. Clear the Hide Extensions For Known File Types check box.

C. If you also use screen magnification software, clear the Show pop-up

description for folder and desktop items check box. Pop up descriptions

often hides

the menu item just below any given menu item, making it impossible to

visually see the next item in the menu list.

D. Move to the Apply to All Folders button and press SPACEBAR.

E. Answer Yes to the dialog that comes up to acknowledge this change.

5. Move to the OK button in the Folder Options dialog box and press 
SPACEBAR

to close this dialog box.



Start Menu

1. From Control Panel, Move to Taskbar and Start menu and press ENTER.

2. From the Taskbar page, press ALT+G to move to and uncheck Group 
Similar

Taskbar Buttons.

3. Press ALT+H to move to and uncheck the check box for Hide inactive 
icons.

4. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the Start Menu page.

5. Select Classic start menu.

6. Press ENTER to close this dialog box.



Windows Explorer

1. Press WINDOWS KEY+E to open Windows Explorer.

2. Press ALT+V to open the View menu.

3. Select "Arrange Icons by" and press ENTER to open the submenu.

4. Move to the menu item "Name" to arrange by Name, and Press ENTER to

select this and close the menus.

5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, and move to the item "Show in Groups." If it is

checked, press ENTER to uncheck it and close the menus.

6. Press ALT+T to open the Tools menu.

7. Press O to open the Folder Options Dialog.

8. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the View page.

9. Press SPACEBAR to activate the "Apply to all folders" button, and 
press

SPACEBAR on the YES button to acknowledge this change.

10. Move to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to close this dialog box.



System Performance

1. From the Control Panel, move to System and press ENTER to open the 
System

Properties Dialog.

2. Press CTRL+TAB to move to the Advanced page.

3. Press ALT+S to activate the Performance Settings button. The 
Performance

Options Dialog opens.

4. Clear the following check boxes:

. Animate Windows when Minimizing and Maximizing.

. Slide open Combo Boxes.

. Smooth-scroll List Boxes.

. Use Visual Styles on Windows and Buttons.

5. Press ENTER to close the Performance Options dialog and return to the

System Properties dialog box.

6. Press ENTER to activate the OK button and close the System Properties

dialog box.

Hi List,
    When trying to select the classic display option, nothing happens. 
At
least, think that's what it's called. Anyhow, its the first step in the 
XP
set-up .MP3 for JFW on Freedom Scientifics web site.
    any help with this matter would be appreciated.
