Hi Amie,

Sometimes when I try to open a folder, Jaws will just stop responding.  If I 
press Alt+F4 and wait for around 30 seconds, Jaws will restart.  Then I can 
open the folder again without any problem.  There doesn't seem to be any 
pattern as to when this happens.

I'm using the latest Jaws with the 1703 version of Windows.  The Fall Update of 
Windows is due to be installed in a day or two so it will be interesting to see 
if anything improves.

Regards.

Ian

Subject: [jaws-uk] Windows Explorer playing up

Hi list
Not sure if this is anything to do with JAWS, so please forgive me if this
is just off-topic: in the last few days Windows Explorer has started playing
up by freezing when I ask it to navigate to folers and files.  I do use a
lot of nested folders, but it has never had a problem with that before.  Now
though it crashes when I ask it to navigate, and does it continually, making
itself pretty much unusable.  I'm finding all files from within Word etc.
So far it is handlable but I'd rather fix it and am worried it's the
precursor of something worse.

Can anyone advise me please?

Thanks in advance

A
