No before your message appeared here for me I asked it as well suspecting that its lost its registration of key DLL files as we have heard of recently here on some laptop clone installs. Brian

Dumb question, but, are you definitely focusing on the web page
contents, and, can you tab around link to link?

If so, then try toggling between browse and focus mode to make sure it's
in browse mode before you try the keystrokes?

But, the main thing is to firstly make sure you're working within the
webpage contents?

And, yes, know this could just be me asking dumb questions...<smile>

Can you reinstall nvda from scratc h and see if that works? You might
have to do that, but use narrator to navigate to the exe where the
installer is and then run it probably in admin mode.

Take care

Hi, Gene,
I tried checking that box but that didn't work. I'll probably have to
have a sighted relative look at it and see what's going on. I wonder
if the tech did delete something that NVDA needs.
Thank you for trying to help though.

In browse mode settings, tab a lot of times until you get to a check
box that says, Trap all non-command gestures from reaching the document.
If it isn't checked, check it. Of course, the tech may have done
something else or corrupted or deleted something NVDA needs to
perform these tasks properly, but this may be the solution.

Hi, everyone,
Recently I had to have my computer repaired. Yesterday I brought it
home from the shop but found that now I can't get to the links list
with NVDA f-7 or the letter K. Whoever repaired my computer must have
changed some settings on it. I have the proper boxes checked but
don't know why this isn't working. Here is what I was trying to do. I
wanted to go to the Gmail site to find out if I had messages in my
spam folder that aren't spam. When I hit K to go from link to link,
all I get is K and nothing else. When I hit NVDA f-7 to go to the
links list, I get a message asking if I want to turn on caret
browsing. What could bee causing this?
Thanks for your help in advance.
