Thank you all very much for helping me with this query. I'm going
to have to do some studying to learn about object navigation but
Gene and Quentin have saved the day.
Unfortunately, the add-on wasn't able to capture the error
message. However, the windows keystroke did. I wasn't aware of
this new addition added to windows. Neat little feature Microsoft
and for Quentin for bringing it to my attention.

Getting back to the original question,
For a lot of dialog boxes such as error messages, you can
actually copy them just by pressing control+c.
I think it was an update to Windows a couple years back
added that but I can't recall.

pressed alt+f4. When it asked me what I wanted to do, I

to get up on my recent soapbox in several venues, it
cannot (and I'd say should not) be presumed that any
random laptop user is actually using laptop keyboard
NVDA uses desktop layout by default on any laptop on
which I've installed it and the majority of laptops
have been sporting a full-size desktop type keyboard
for some time now.
Laptops with classic laptop keyboard layout are the
exception, not the rule.
Keyboard layout depends on the keyboard itself, not
the thing it's connected to or built into.
One can use laptop layout with a full-size keyboard,
but not vice versa.
