Hi,

Reported by several people: in Windows 10, when one opens quick link menu (Windows+X), NVDA announces "unknown".

STR:

  1. Press Windows+X to open quick link menu.
  2. Select an item.

Expected: no "unknown".
Actual: "unknown" is announced.
Cause: an app launcher or an unknown window gains focus.

Related to: #5116, #6671.

Thanks.

Windows with the class name of LauncherTipWnd and ApplicationManager_DesktopShellWindow fires focus events, causing NVDA to announce 'unknown' when opening quick link menu (Windows+X) and selecting an item from this menu. Suppress this if possible.

I have not been able to replicate this in any of the insider builds of Windows. However, if we try to use object nav to look at the first level children of desktop, there are several unknown children. Perhaps what people are hearing is NVDA potentially focusing on one of these unknown objects.
