Hi,
Do you know how to create a hot key if there is no icon on desktop?
For example, I would like to create alt control+n for Notepad. Notepad is not on my desktop. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Michael Arnowitt" <foodsong@xxxxxxxxx>

This is the way I've done it in XP, not sure about Vista. Usually when a program is installed it makes a shortcut to your desktop. I'm going to assume you have an icon and program title on your desktop. So press windows key plus d to go to the desktop, type the first few letters of the name of the program and when you hear Jaws say it, press alt + enter which should get you to the properties dialog box. Press alt + k. You should hear Jaws say shortcut key. Press a single letter of the alphabet for what you want to be the hot key, I think some other characters on the keyboard are also usable.
Tab down to OK and press enter.
The result should be you can launch the program now by pressing ctrl + alt + your single letter.

Some of these letters may have already been taken by other programs so it's best to test before starting this whole process - just try ctrl + alt + your desired letter to see if it happens to launch some other program on your computer.

When in the shortcut key part of the dialog box, just type the letter, not ctrl + alt + letter. The computer fills in the rest.

Hello,
I was wondering if there was any way to create your own Hotkeys? Like to open up word or other programs? Also, Caps lock J on my Vista laptop with Jaws 11 isn't working. Is there another way to do insert J with a laptop?
Thank you,
