Oh, and being she wasn't totally up to date last night, she didn't hear it.
 
Aa! That makes sense.
 
Thanks for the explaination.

Hi,

Not exactly, as the content of the dialog in question isn’t announced by NVDA by default (at least for default installations; this is fixed with the WinTenApsp add-on).

Cheers,

Joseph

Wouldn't she have seen that however as a dialog, then been able to take action on it? Or, does it ask that in a toast, where she might not have known it was asking this question.

 

I'm not trying to be snarky here. I'm only trying to better understand.

Hi,

The true reason why Alt+F4 didn’t work here is because Edge has opened multiple tabs at once. If this happens, when one presses Alt+F4, one would be asked to close all tabs.

Cheers,

Joseph

OK, yeah, so that isn't the issue with the FN key.

 

Hmm. Now, you've really got me stumped! I'll think about it, and let you know if I come up with anything.

Hi, Chris,

 

Yes, alt F-4 normally works for me in other programs.

Depends on the system. F4 might be getting intercepted as something like screen brightness or the like… Something dealing with hardware, not software. That’s why I said if you have an FN key, try holding that down. Does alt+F4 normally work in other applications for you? If so, then my suggestion won’t be correct.

 

Chris.

Hmm. Didn’t think of that. Does this work on a desktop or just a laptop? I have a desktop.

Try alt+FN+F4. Your F4 key might be getting intercepted as a hardware key and not a software key. I've had that happen on occasions with certain systems.

I tried alt F-4 but it didn't work. I'll give it another try. Maybe I didn't close it correctly.

I've just played with it a bit, but was always able to close it with alt f4 just like any other program.

Hi, everyone,

 

I decided to play with edge a little bit but I had trouble closing the browser. I had to go to the desktop and then shut down. There has to be a way to close it like you do other browsers.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.
