Right, so my mother was able to open the portable copy of NVDA, and I was in the window where the NVDA Portable folder was. Then I pressed caps-lock+n to open the NVDA menu and it said NVDA menu, but when I scrolled with the arrow keys it was only reading
the items in the NVDA Portable folder, and so I couldn't select anything from the NVDA menu. I tried alt+tab but that just landed me in the same window. I tried pressing NVDA+n again, but that didn't work. I can't install from the portable copy if I can't
access the NVDA menu.
I saw your other post, but wasn’t sure what you are trying to achieve?
Are you saying you want to run a portable copy of nvda or you cant run a portable copy?
Or are you wanting to install from a portable copy?
Or cant install it to your computer?
If you can be a bit ore specific that will help, thanks

Subject: [nvda] Trying to install NVDA from a portable copy on new Windows 10 computer but can't focus on the NVDA menu
I got a Windows 10 laptop as an early Christmas present and earlier, I
tried to install NVDA on it from the portable copy I have, but when I
opened the NVDA Menu, focus didn't switch to it. I tried alt+tab in case
that would help, but I always landed on the window with the folder
containing the portable copy. I really wanna start working this computer
out and setting it up to my liking, but I can't do that if I can't even
focus on the window I want to focus on. I've asked on the blind tech
list but nobody's talking yet and I'm scared my post might end up being
ignored because I sent it just as everyone was going to bed.
