Re: Ho to change the use of the <CTRL+A> Windows key combination.

What I was trying to say was that since it's a Windows convention rather than being an actual Windows keystroke, the control+a is defined as such by the actual program, not by Windows itself. So you couldn't change it universally within Windows, you'd have to change it from within the individual program, assuming the program would let you do it.

I know what it does and what it is!  But thank you for the explanation
anyway!

I was asking if anyone knew whether it was possible to change a
Windows keystroke or not.

It's a Windows keystroke, not a JAWS one, so is probably defined from
program to program. In fact it would be better to say that it's a Windows
convention, not an actual Windows keystroke, because the keystroke is used
in a program when it adopts the convention, it's not a keystroke that's
actually built into Windows.

Does anyone on this list know how to change <CTRL+a> which is the
windows combination for selecting the whole document, to
<ALT+SHIFT+A>, for example.
