Asking this here since, I know that, for example, if I receive a word
document via e-mail, then I won't really be able to edit it, or really
review contents, since windows/word marks as it as from a possibly unsafe
source, but, for example, when having worked with jaws in the past, I
would switch to jaws/virtual mouse cursor, move to one of the top lines of
the whole window, and on the right-hand side, there would be something you
could click the mouse cursor on, to enable editing.

However, if I switch to screen review cursor in current/latest NVDA, then
I don't seem to be able to find that part of the window.

I am guessing that if I used actual physical mouse itself, I might be able
to find it, but, was just wondering if there's another way someone can

As in, something like either a set of keystrokes, or another method/means
to access that hotspot, without having to work with a physical mouse,
which I wouldn't even, generally, have plugged into a desktop PC.

And, this is currently working with MS word 2010, but anyway.
