NVDA 2020.4 rc1

Running NVDA 2020.4 RC1 on a Win 10 20h2 system. When returning to the desktop after closing something like Thunderbird or MS edge it seems you are not back to the desktop. Prir to this RC1 when closing edge or thunderbird NVDA would announce desktop and the icon you were on. Now it says nothing and you have to bab or use other means to get to the desktop.

I don't think this is a nvda issue. What steps are you taking to produce this bug? I never end up at my desktop, I end up back to where I was.

In my experience, as a Windows function not NVDA, when you close a program, you are taken to another open program, probably the one you last alt+tabbed to.

and you have to bab or use other means to get to the desktop.
What is this babbing of which you speak?

A question: After you have closed the program, can you press alt+tab, and hear
how many programs windows thinks you have open?
For example, close Thunderbird, and it doesn't return you to the desktop.

Then, hold down alt, and repeatedly press tab. It will say something like:
program name, row 1, column 1. Program name, row 1, column 2. And so on. How
many columns does it say you have?

If you get any more than one column, then you have something open you may not
know about. Perhaps you aren't hearing the desktop, because it's returning to
an inaccessible window, or a non-speaking Windows notification, or some such.

Hi,

 

I have Windows 10 Pro 20h2 with NVDA 2020.4. When I open Microsoft Edge, I am able to return to desktop when I minimise Edge by the “Minimize” option or “Windows + Down arrow” shortcut key. The behaviour is normal. I do not use Thunderbird.

 

With Best Regards,

Sanjog Kumawat

You do end up in something of a gray area that when a insert+t you get explorer. When actually you lost focus and NVDA don't know how to handle it.
Now JFW does tell you when your not in focus and its clueless.

Good Morning:  Is it returning to the task bar?
