I actually have no idea. Perhaps someone else with more knowledge
on that side of things can explain.

This happens because text in the run dialogue is selected by
default when the dialogue opens. When you use the up and down
arrow keys to move through the history of commands you have
entered, the text changes, but the selection remains. Windows
simply puts the new text into the text field every time you press
up or down, but the text never gets unselected before being
I updated to Windows 7 Service pack 1 recently to try
to solve a problem which wasn’t solved in that way. I
had put it off because there was a version of a program
I can’t run after the update. It’s a little less
convenient but I can run a newer version and I almost
never run it anyway.
Which is to explain why I hadn’t played with newer
versions of NVDA for a good while. But now, I’m curious
about something. When I am in the run dialog and up and
down arrow in the list of things I have run, NVDA says
the word instead off and on. It might say Notepad
selected, then if I down arrow, it might say c:\audio
selected instead or maybe Wordpad selected instead.
This isn’t consistent and it doesn’t do this in Windows
Explorer. I’m curious why that is.
