Re: Unable to restart NVDA sometimes

Does this happen while Jaws is running, or after you quite Jaws or its 40 minutes times out?

CONTROL+ALT+N is the shortcut to launch the desktop icon.  If you go to the desktop (windows+m), then find the shortcut and press ENTER on it, that should achieve the same thing in restarting NVDA, even if it is already running.  Does that work?

Is the hot key used by jaws?
Have you tried implicitly running it from the exe file?

Subject: [nvda] Unable to restart NVDA sometimes


I have NVDA17.3, running in a win10 os.

If I run latest JAWS in 40 minute mode, then quit, I am unable to
restart NVDA (ctrl + alt +N) in the same session

In order to restart NVDA, I need to reboot.

Is anyone else experiencing this ?

Thanks, Paul
