how do you "print screen"?


I don't think that this keyboard has that key built in.
Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.
You could also use the on screen keyboard.
Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:
- Click "Start" button - Click on "RUN" - Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)
The keyboard comes on
You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:
- Right click on the desktop - Click the new shortcut button - Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.

how do i turn off scroll lock


One way is to click Start>Run. Type osk and click OK or press Enter.

When the On Screen Keyboard appears, click on the SLK key. Presto!

Kind of a pain, but at least you can do it.

Also reading another forum that suggests hitting the Fn+Pause/Break keys.

Note: You can also get to the On Screen Keyboard by going to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Accessibilty>On-screen Keyboard, but doing the Run>osk is quicker.
