[nabs-l] Windows 10 Computer Stuck on Lock Screen?

My apologies, I should have played with this before posting.  To toggle Narrator on and off it is control-windows-enter.

Thanks for starting me down the right track.

Sometimes this happens. The way I usually fix it is by starting Windows Narrator. It is almost as though JAWS can’t find the edit boxes. Starting Narrator seems to drop the cursor into the edit box and then JAWS will work fine. Quirky, but it works for me. To start Narrator, the command is Windows+Enter. 

Best,
Greg
