Re: Sometimes I Can't Stop NVDA


Quentin Christensen
 

Is this just happening to those on the latest insider build?  (someone's comment sounded like that).

Could those having this issue please email me a copy of your NVDA log, ideally at debug level, after reproducing this issue?  Also, which version of Windows you are using?

Certainly, as everyone gathers, it's not the desired behaviour.  I haven't seen it here although if it's related to the latest Windows 10 build, my machine is currently waiting to install that.  The last insider build of Windows broke for me so I made it wait to update to this one...
