Re: opening links within a message

Oh that edge! I hope one day it will stop taking over! I hope Microsoft will
provide a solution to have any browser take over as you choose. Not Edge
trying to take over. There has to be a work around to have any browser be
default without Edge trying to take over.

Strange but it still happens! Edge wants to take over!

Happens to me as well, at times, and seems like edge keeps on trying to take
back control of protocol types, etc.

As in, while, maybe an htttp link will still open with either firefox, or
chrome, depending on which I have set as default browser, but, then an https
link will open in edge, etc. etc.

Haven't found a way to stop this from happening consistently as of yet, but
anyway.

Stay well

That is strange. If you have firefox set as your browser then it should be
it. Not edge.

Hi,
I have the browser set to Firefox. However when I click on a link within
an
email message, it is opened with MSFT Edge. This does not happen all the
time.
Any idea?
Thanks and blessings

Windows key + Enter should, hopefully, get narrator to start talking, and,
it should be able to read some of the logon screen to you, but, only
really
allows you to navigate using tab, and arrow keys.

Good luck

I followed the instructions in the mesage below to copy the current
configuration to the Windows logon screen. However, i missed the
checkbox to have NVDA work at that screen. Now after making some
changes, including setting Windows to never slep, it boots directly into
the logon dialogue and says Configuring Windows. That is the NVDA
mesage, but it won't do anything more. Is there a way to get past this
dialogue and proceed to a normal boot?

Thanks,
John

This uses a completely different NVDA profile, with a separate
speech/braille config. By default it's set to espeak.

My first guess is your machine is going to sleep, and it's asking for
your password when it wakes up. You can turn off sleep in the power
options.

If you want to copy the current configuration to the secure desktop, so
it uses the same speech/braille settings as the logged in NVDA, you can
do that.
* Press ctrl+NVDA+G, to open the NVDA General settings.
* Press the button that says Use currently saved settings on the logon
and other secure screens (requires administrator privileges).
* If the secure desktop appears during this process, it's probably an
UAC
prompt. Press alt y.
If you want NVDA to work at the logon screen, the General settings
dialog
has a checkbox for that as well.
