windows stops when you press the Windows key plus a number combination.
maybe you had the same issue and you can help
On my task bar at the second position I have the icon of Windows
I usually have three or four windows open at the same
time of the File Manager, each of which points to a different folder on my
Pressing on the keyboard the shortcut Windows Key plus number
2, I easily open the first File Manager window, and the focus is inside this
Pressing Windows Key plus twice number 2 I open the second File
Manager window and so on.
So if for example I'm reading something on a
web browser window and I want to switch to the second File Manager window, I
simply press Window Key plus twice number 2 and the focus moves directly
inside this window.
It is a fast and easy way to navigate directly into
a specific window.
Basically it works.
But for an unknown reason
after some hours I'm working, it doesn't work properly anymore.
1. The focus is on a web browser window.
2. I press Windows Key
plus number 2 twice.
3. On the task bar is open the preview window of all
File Manager windows opened. It is not directly opened the second File Manager
Basically it is the same effect as you press Window Key plus T,
then you move with the Right arrow on the File Manager window and finally you
press Up arrow to enter inside the list of opened File Manager window.
I have to do at this point is to press left or right key to choose which
window I want to open and then press Space Bar key.
It is pretty
boring, because I switch continuously from one window to another.
File Manager window is just an example.
the result it is the same if I have
multiple istances of Microsoft Excel window, or Mozilla Firefox
I have the feelling it is not depending from the Screen Reader,
but it is a Window Operating System issue, maybe a graphic issue?
removed all graphic effect, but with no result.
Anyway, somebody who
had the same issue solved in some way?
I'm using NVDA at the last
version and Windows 10 64 bit last update on a desktop PC.
The same anyway
it is also on the laptop with Windows 10.
Thanks a lot.
