FYI, Windows 10 Essentials Update

Janet Brandly
 

Hello all,

 

I just wanted to let you know that, at least for me, NVDA did not automatically restart after installing the most recent Windows 10 App Essentials update. I had to restart NVDA manually. In case your computer stops talking for a long time after you have shut NVDA down as instructed, try this. I know this sounds pretty basic, but there may be users out here who get hung up by this.

 

Cheers,

 

Janet

 

Hi,

Did NVDA prompt you to restart after installing the add-on? Normally it should (if it didn’t and you used Add-on Updater to update, that’s something I need to think about).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hmmm, interesting.  It prompted me about restarting NVDA.  No problems here.

Hi Joseph. I get this from time to time as well. NVDA will beep for what seems like forever and I sometimes have to manually update it.

Hi Joseph,

 

No, NVDA did not prompt me to restart. It did prompt me to shut it down. I heard the shutting down sound, then it just sat there. That’s when I restarted it manually. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Hmmm, In this case, I have nothing to say.
