I'm glad the restart of NVDA fixed the issue, though I cannot guarantee it will work permanently.
Cheers!

File Explorer is the W10 equivalent of Windows Explorer and similarly requires configuring to how you prefer to see information displayed.

As in Windows Explorer, you can view information on your computer in the same way for all folders of the same type. To do this, do the following:

1. Press Windows+r, type C: in the edit box and press enter.
2. Press alt+v, then press l.
3.arrow to your preferred format for folder/file display and press enter (Details is probably the best for a blind user).

4. Press alt+f, then press o. You are now in a multi-tab dialog on the General tab. These settings are personal choice but I'll tell you what I use and why then you can set them to suit yourself. Use the tab key to move through the controls, arrow keys to select your choices.

The first control sets where File Explorer will open when not started for a specific location. The choices are QuickStart and ThisPC. I set mine to ThisPC as I tend not to use quickstart as I usually set up shortcut keys for things I use regularly so do not need the clutter of quick start items.

The next control is a pair of radio buttons which specify if each folder you open is in the same or a new window. I set this to be the same window as you end up with open windows all over the place if you elect to open each in a separate window and it can get very confusing.

The next control is another pair of radio buttons. Set this to Double click to open, single click to select. I know this is mouse related but in keyboard terms, it equates to enter to open, focus acquisition to select (either by arrow key or spacebar).

The next 2 controls related to quick start information, which as I don't use, I leave unchecked.

Now tab down to the Apply button and press enter, then press tab again to loop back to the top of the dialog box.

Press Control+tab to move to the next tab in the dialog box, the View tab.

The first control here is a button, which if you press enter on it, will apply the display format you chose in step 3 above to all folders of this type on your computer. You should press enter to do this.

Now tab down to the Advanced settings. This is a treeview containing the settings applied to the display of information in File Explorer. It is quite extensive so I will just list the parameters I have checked or set to an On state. Note some parameters may be set to On by default but I may have switched them off.

Always show menus
Display the full path in the title bar
Show hidden files and folders
Hide folder merge conflicts
Hide protected operating system files
Show Drive Letters
Show Status bar
Use sharing wizard
Select the typed item in the view
Expand to open folder
Show all folders

Now tab to OK and press enter. Close the File Explorer window and try opening your Download folder again and see if you can read it now.


Cheers
Chris

Subject: [nvda] Laptop acting weird?

Hi folks, having a strange problem.

When i try to access files in the downloads folder, or for any other folder, i can't see them.

Going into the downloads folder, i hear something about file explorer.

All i can see is the search box, and the Details, and large icons thing.

I no there's stuff in the folders, but i can't see them for some reason.

This just happens.



Re: Laptop acting weird?

Arianna Sepulveda
 

Chris, thanks for this very useful message. One question for you. I
used to have NVDA read the little info thing that popped up after
selecting any file or folder that would tell you things like size,
date modified, date created, etc. It used to do this without having to
do anything special. I'd just down arrow to something, and bam! I have
the thing for tooltips and descriptions to pop up in the view settings
of File Explorer, as well as NVDA's report tooltips setting turned on,
and I'm still not getting the behavior anymore, which I find annoying.
I'd like that info to be automatically spoken again, just like it used
to be. Do you have any ideas as to why this changed, and how I can get
it back?


Thanks,
Ari

Re: NVDA remote.

Kenny Dog <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Is this only between 2 users? When the remote add on was released some
people could not work it out or it was 2 technical for them.

The guide for it can be found under the nvda add ons section in NVDA.
Look for the help section for that add on, then press the enter key and
it will be there.


If you are interested i did rewrite the tutorial on how to use it
between 2 people and there was a written version done as well as a audio
version done as well.


The tutorials can be found on my nvda audio tutorials page at
http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html

You will have to jump down by heading to a section I think it is called
how to provide assistance to another user using the remote add on or
some thing like that.

There are steps under that.



I have not written any thing so a person can remote in from home or some
where else into a machine that has no one at it.


hope the tutorials help.

It may depend on what programs you run. but I've seen, on this list, an
instance where someone had serious problems with Windows Live Mail that were
solved by reinstalling. of course, people can choose not to reinstall if
they find they aren't having problems. But I've seen the recommendation to
reinstall made by one or more knowledgeable persons.

upgrade to Windows 10 with NVDA installed and not reinstall it? I'm not
talking about the upgrade. I'm talking about upgrading from some other
version of Windows. It has been recommended that NVDA be reinstalled after
upgrading. it solves problems. I haven't seen this problem discussed in
that context but it still may apply.

Hi,
When you open the folder you have to work with, restart NVDA. That fixed
this issue on my desktop computer.

Hi folks, having a strange problem.

When i try to access files in the downloads folder, or for any other
folder, i can't see them.

Going into the downloads folder, i hear something about file explorer.

All i can see is the search box, and the Details, and large icons thing.

I no there's stuff in the folders, but i can't see them for some reason.

This just happens.

It may depend on what programs you run.  but I've seen, on this list, an instance where someone had serious problems with Windows Live Mail that were solved by reinstalling.  of course, people can choose not to reinstall if they find they aren't having problems.  But I've seen the recommendation to reinstall made by one or more knowledgeable persons.

I have already upgraded some laptops from 8.1 to 10, and never had the need
to re-install NVDA...

Well then, it appears my comments don't apply since reinstalling NVDA was
recommended after upgrading to Windows 10.

I have come across this issue on windows 8.1, and not 10. By the way, file
explorer works fine on win 10. The fix is not permanent, which means that it
will not occur until it randomly decides to happen.
