By the way, I just tried the f11 key and that doesn't seem to do anything.

I did find a solution, however. I changed the NVDA key on my PC to capslock. I think that that takes care of a majority of the conflicts, but I wonder if there is a better way to do it without shutting NVDA down when I want to go to my remote desktop.

By the way, I never thought of the f11 key.
I think I will try it.

I have a copy of NVDA here on my home computer and a copy of NVDA on

If I access my office computer from my PC through Remote Desktop, the
copy of NVDA on my Office computer reads as I expect it to, but when
I press insert-t to here the title of the windo, or when I press
insert-q to shut down the copy of NVDA on my office computer, the the
NVDA on my home compyuter responds, for instance, when I am in
Microsoft Word on my office computer, and I press insert-t, my home
computer responds by reading the title of the window where my home
computer has focus.
What can I do to stop this behaviour and make the NVDA on myy home
computer relinquish control of my keyboard?
