Re: selecting the desktop


The procedure I gave allows you to do this with any screen-reader from the keyboard.  It's a Windows procedure.

Hello, Giles. Yes there is. To do so, you'll need to use NVDA's object
navigation. Go to your desktop, then navigate up by using insert up
arrow till you hear "desktop window". At this point, you can
right-click in order to personalize, change display options, etc. HTH.
