Re: Why isn’t there a browse mode for windows desktop apps?


 

Hi,
Apart from recent apps, traditional desktop apps are not really web documents nor exposes elements in a way that is suitable for browse mode navigation. Therefore there is no need for a dedicated browse mode functionality.
Cheers,
Joseph

When navigating webpages, it’s possible to use single key navigation to move by different elements such as lists, form fields,links etc. but browse mode is not available in standard windows desktop apps. Why is this? It would be great to have that same functionality
