That solved the problem, so thanks very much.

Now, I have another issue to solve:

Since I can now use notepad, I want to make a shortcut for it.  However, 
whenever I go to my start menu, find notepad, hit my applications key, go to 
properties, and try to enter alt control n as my shortcut, Jaws doesn't let 
me do it.  It says alt control +, and won't let me put the N in there to 
complete the key combination.

I know there are no other alt control N shortcuts on this computer, so I'm 
baffled as to why Jaws won't let me do the shortcut.

I have had this problem with other applications, and sometimes need sighted 
assistance to correct the problem.

Any suggestions about how  to resolve this issue would be appreciated, and 
then, I should be all set for a while.

Just for info, I'm using Windows XP here with Jaws 10.0.

Thanks!

Hi Tom.

This might be as simple as not having word wrap turned on in Notepad.
In notepad, press alt+o to get into the format menu, and the first
thing you should hear is "word wrap". If Jaws doesn't say
"checked", hit enter to check it and turn word wrap on.
