Hi Adrian,

It seemed to become more prominent in JAWS 12.  I have also encountered this in 
JAWS 10 but not as much.  With JAWS 12 it happens on a lot of web pages.

Anyway, thanks to all that have responded.  I will try each of these

  I'm wondering why this behavior has just started, as you seem to suggest. Is 
it across the board or only on certain websites or pages?

  In addition to insert-F7, the quick key l and the key combo control-enter, 
you might try JAWS's simulated right mouse click button, which is the star key 
on the numpad. This brings up a menu of several options for how to handle a 
link, such as opening in a new tab. (On my system, the applications key doesn't 
duplicate this function.) I also find sometimes that instead of pressing the 
right mouse button, clicking the left mouse button clicks on the link.

  Hi All,

  Recently I've noticed that when I go to links on web pages that JAWS does not 
go into the links that I specify. Has any of you had this problem, and if so, 
how do you correct it?

  Thanks in advance.
