Seems rather intricate. When you install JAWS it installs an icon on your desktop and assigns it Ctrl+Alt+j so you don't have to do all that rigamarole. Also if the JAWS icon happens to be the only one on desktop starting with the letter "J" then pressing the "J" key will place focus on the icon and you just press the Enter key. Give them a try.

Then I key in JAWS11 or whatever version you are using. Press enter and JAWS comes up.

Command to launch is Ctrl+Alt+J if you have a hotkey assigned. If not, then you need to assign Ctrl+Alt+J to any JAWS icon either on your desktop or in your start menu under Programs.

But, it didn't work! I noticed that JAWS wasn't in my desktop, except under the unused icon list. Could this be the problem, and how would I correct it?
