I have already tried different keyboards and the same things happen.

It sounds like your control keys are not working. So when you do NVDA plus Control plus F all the keyboard is registering is the NVDA and F keys. If you had another keyboard to attach to the computer and the keystroke worked then you would know if it was your keyboard or something else. You can try to clean the keyboard with a can of compressed air if you can get one.

To be honest I don't understand what you are asking here. We need context in order to figure out what the issue is. Practical examples including software running version of windows etc.
I can only say that if you are a non admin user and are using a copy of nvda installed by another user who has not granted write status to you you are in effect stuck with the settings as they are or as you temporarily set them.
I do not understand the control f ref here as this does different things according to what softwar you are running and attempting to make it work as an nvda command is going to have clashes.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA Issues.

Ok, i have some questions and hopefully something can be done.
My first question is about the find comand nvda control f the regular nvda control f for me does not work weather i use a whireless or USB computer keyboard.
the extended nvda control f works but I am used to the regular way of doing things; Yes i set up a different hot key combo but would perfer to be able to use the regular nvda control f.
on a lap top i also have that key combo works fine.
and no i do not have the laptop layout on in nvda on my desktop.
Now as to the other question every so offten nvda goes into a read only mode.
That you can not save any settings why is this? and how can you fix it.
The only way i can fix it is by taking the half read only away from the folder.
but when i do i can not still save settings when shutting nvda down it will not come back when doing alt control n.
So please help!!!!!!
