Re: Shortcut for the back button doesn't work

Doug Lee

I am told that the Back button is no longer present in Skype for Windows Desktop as of at least Skype 8.58 if not 8.57. Léonie, do you still encounter difficulties with this? I was starting to implement a shortcut when I
realized I could not produce the button anymore myself.

the window seems to solve the problem - although the default/original size of
the window is perfectly normal according to sighted people I've checked with.

Léonie, I failed to answer this over month-old message; but typically, unanswered emails sit in my inbox until I do; and that happened here. I am slating for implementation in the Skype Electron scripts a faster way to click
the Back button, though I could not reproduce your specific issue myself. I'd be curious to know if this still happens to you. Sorry it took me so long to answer.

I've just installed Skype on a Windows 10 machine with a fresh
install of Jaws 2020, and version 137 of the Jaws scripts, and I can no longer
get the control 1 shortcut to work. Instead I have to tab around to find the
back button.

I've tried reinstalling both Skype and the Jaws scripts but it hasn't helped.
I've restarted both my laptop and Jaws each time, but that hasn't worked

Help welcome. Thanks
