Re: NVDA and Using The Edge Browser

Thank you for the tip about bringing up a context menu when no item is selected. I use that feature on the windows Desktop, but it never occurred to me to use it in Outlook or File Explorer. Very handy indeed.

I have not read all this thread but in terms of the problem you are experiencing you can get a simple menu system to achieve what you want in Windows and actually many other applications like Outlook.
Specifically for achieving detailed view.
In the File Explorer window focus on any file.
Now hit control plus space to de-select it so no files are selected in the folder.
Now hit the application key or shift F10 and an easy NVDA friendly menu system whill open up, abit like the old menu interface of windows. Here you can easily change the view and sort characteristics of the folder in the way you used to in XP etc.
The same trick works in the Outlook message list as well.
