Re: time and date key (NVDA plus F12)

A standard USB keyboard doesn't mean that it will do what you expect it to. It might have a few extra features.
Try this:
1. Turn on input help with NVDA+1.
2. Press F10 through F12, then turn off input help with NVDA+1.
What do they say?
If they don't say F10 through F12, then you've either got some key remapping software on your computer, or in your keyboard.
Some keyboards have an FN lock key (or combination) that changes what the function keys send.

Thank you Sarah, but this machine is a desktop.  Sorry I failed to mention that.  As such, there is no FN key.

I don't know what kind of system you have, but check to see your fn keys are deactivated.  Consult your favorite search engine as there are a million ways to do things on every different laptop.

Good luck.

Subject: [nvda] time and date key (NVDA plus F12)

For some reason, my time and date key isn't working.

I'm using windows 10 and NVDA 21.3.3.  When I first boot up, the command
F12 tells me the system volume.  After it's been up awhile, it stays silent.  I did the NVDA fix thing but that didn't help.  At first, it doesn't want to change review modes; but that comes back after a bit. This is all after a system restore, if that matters

Any ideas anyone?  Thanks.
