I don’t have the windows update issue, but I have seen the folder issue. I pin nvda to my task bar at position 1 this way I can just hit windows 1 and it restarts. I am also not sure what causes the problem to occur in the first place.

The Windows update settings window is some what bothering with the latest versions. I am afraid whether this has been caused by NVDA or the Windows itself.
The recent update window does not leave the NVDA focus stable, the list of updates keeps moving away from the focus automatically.
Some times it is difficult to see the list of update items and their progress level cannot be read with NVDA.
The focus moves to the Pause button instead of the list.
So Tab and Shift+Tab several times would help to some what find the required details.
It would be more helpful if we can have a standard way with NVDA in these windows.

I have had similar experiences with things like the Windows Update window
Usually when it first opens it says the last time it was updated
However, it is not accessible to the mouse or arrow keys
Then if I use the tab key it seems to put it into focus and the window becomes accessible
I have also had to get used to something similar while editing email messages.
However, I don't know what triggers the problem...
Sometimes it is like the message edit box goes out of focus
Then the arrow keys stop speaking the text being edited
If I force the focus to somewhere else like the subject field and come back to the edit box it works properly again
I have only been having these problems in more recent versions of NVDA.
This probably started about a year or so ago...
