Ted, If you need the sticky key add-on that Tyler wrote, I just put a copy here for you:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/chq3xzhf3gq5skv/stickyModifier-0.1.nvda-addon?dl=1

I'll leave it there for a few days (I.E. until I remember to delete it).

Tested to work with latest NVDA (up to last alpha).

Remember, that even if you are using an account with administrative privileges, neither Command Prompt or Power Shell will open with those active unless you specifically invoke them with Admin privilege.

If you hit WinKey+X, then down arrow or up arrow to the entry for Command Prompt or PowerShell, there will be two entries, one with "(Admin)" next to the name and that's the one that opens an elevated session.  The one where it's not present gives you more typical user privileges, not full admin privileges, for that session.

You don't, of course. In case you think that because you're using a laptop, you can't use the desktop layout: you can. Even on my laptops I never use the laptop layout.

What NVDA version?

Does it work when you run with add-ons disabled?

What speech synth?

Well, anything can get corrupted somehow.  Were I you I would first uninstall and reinstall add-on updater itself, then see what happens.  Or just manually download the add-on that it's being recalcitrant about updating and apply it manually.

"These things happen (and we don't know why)," is something I have had to tell clients repeatedly over the years.  And an uninstall/reinstall as a fix attempt is not uncommon.

Hi,

Also, Add-on Updater must be told to check for updates for add-ons, and I guess that could be a factor here.

Cheers,
