Re: Was Re: Classic start menu: Applications key

Well, I found the key but software had to be installed to make everything work. It is a full size KB -- keys are just in rather odd spots.


I do still have a question, however, about rearranging start menu by name. Would someone who does that all the time please briefly explain? I've always been one to pretty much work with what I've got in whatever shape it's in but the older I get, the more interested I am getting in making things easier. I do tend to wrestle with things a lot.

The Function key is generally a hardware combination trigger.  My
laptop for example has an Fn key that combined with another key press
will control speaker volume or print screen (since it lacks that as a
separate key).  Your keyboard documentation or a sighted user should
be able to tell you about any such combinations.

If you are talking about a full sized kb I would be amazed if it
doesn't have an APP key.  Compact keyboards are another matter and I
don't care for them.

"applications" key. To the right of my spacebar is alt, function (which
seems to do nothing) and control. To the left is alt, windows key and
control. No applications key? Anybody else have a similar keyboard?

I can't seem to find that context menu. I can locate the properties menu
but not context. Where is that?

Thanks,
Karen

Gerald,

As usual you are a genius. I've never thought to try the context menu
while
in the program menu list. But there it is: sort by name!

And now I've discovered a much quicker way to jump into the file folder
for
the start menu, as well. Saves a lot of time.

Makes my day, and my joining this list worthwhile.

Dave

Unfortunately, there is no way to have the Start or Favorites menus
re-sorted in alphabetical order automatically every time a new item is
added. You just have to remember to use the Sort by Name option on the
Context menu whenever you update the Start or Favorites menus. This is
really no big deal.

Subject: classic start menu


Hello,
I have jaws 10 and windows xp. I am using the classic start menu with
personalised menus disabled. When I add an item to the start menu or
the
favorites menu, it still appears at the bottom of the list until I
press
applications and select sort by name. How can I have menu items sorted
alphabetically automatically?
Thanks!

Mike Rouillard
