Opening a Document from the Thumb Drive

OPEN A DOCUMENT FROM A THUMB DRIVE:



The Thumb Drive is called the Thumb Drive because it is roughly the size of a human thumb.

Begin by finding the metallic end of the drive.
Once you have found it, explore the front of the computer to find two vertical slots.
Now, attempt to stick that metal end of the thumb drive into one of the vertical slots.
Do not force it, if it does not fit right away try turning it over.
Once it is in, give it a few seconds for the computer and the thumb drive to talk to each other.
You may hear a few pinging sounds and JAWS saying Found New Hardware.
That means that the computer recognizes the thumb drive.


With the Open Window open,
Hold onto the Alt Key and tap on the D Key.
You will hear JAWS say Address Edit Combo.
Tap on the Escape Key.
