Some letter key is not working on keyboard???

If any of the key on the keyboard is not working, you can use an alternate for time being. This is regarding ASCII. There are ASCII codes for every character on the keyboard. A - 65,B - 66........... So on a - 97, b - 98...........So on
Use these codes by pressing and holding Alt key on the keyboard. In order to type b character. Press and hold Alt key and type 66 from the numpad at the right side of the keyboard.

how to get the sterling pound symbol in K120 logitech keyboard


Entering the following keystroke combination will result in the Pound Sterling sign being displayed:
While holding down the ALT key, enter 0163 (ALT+0163).

This is known ASCII Code. (Pronounced Ask-key.)
A complete list of all 256 character codes is available at http://www.ascii-code.com/ .
All manner of Latin-based characters are available. Check it out.
To use any ASCII Code, choose the "HTML Number" and substitute "ALT+0" for "&#".
In this case, the HTML Number is &#163, therefore when entering text, type ALT+0163 (NOTE: "ALT+" means "While holding down the ALT key, press and release each of the four digits in sequence, then release the ALT key.)

Hope this helps.

what is the ascii equivalent of that "window key" in the standard keyboard?


Hi there! Keys like the Windows key don't have an ASCII value. Only keys that are 'printable' have an ASCII value. To detect keys like the Windows key you have to use either the Key Down or Key Up events and use the Key Code to detect which key was pressed. You can find the values for Key Codes on MSDN



Hope this helps!

You can use the ASCII code, here is the table.

Most of the keys on the keyboard refer to an ASCII code. Like if you want to type the letter "A", just hold down the "Alt" key and type "65", then release the "Alt" key. Try it in notepad. I have used this trick a few times. Look at the extended ASCII codes.

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
