Subject: [nvda] Reading names of selected files

Hello all,

I’m using the latest NVDA (not the beta) with windows 10 I’m trying to move

some files from my downloads folder into my documents folder and using the
shift + down-arrow keys to select them, but NVDA isn’t confirming that
selected when I use the “read selected text” command. Is there a better
command to use to confirm that files are selected for moving, copying, ect?




nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
