The F-keys are just keys. If they had proper meanings they would have glyphs assigned like @ or % or $ or R. If you want a cheat-sheet about the uses of the F-keys in various programs, take notes in a program or on paper and print a cheat-sheet out. It beats buying another screen just to display that info, epsecially with the number and variety of programs out there.

Within the scope of a certain BIOS or OS environment, e.g. the desktop or Microsoft Word in normal editing mode, they can have particular meanings. Accordingly, you can buy neat plastic templates that fit down in your keyboard (from Global Supply, or Corel, or various publishers and special interest groups) or office supply stores, and get some intuition on how to work more efficiently.

I hope I'm answering what you were wondering about!
You know, in Linux, a keyboard with multimedia volume control keys generally has to be set up so those keys mean something manually. On the other hand, you can set up stuff you really want done.

How do I use the prtsc button on toshiba ? It has END/prtsc. THANKS


If the 2 words written on the key are different colour then you might have to press the Fn key + End/prtsc for one of the options. If they are both the same colour then the Shift key + End/prtsc.

The Fn key has the same colour letters as the key which is pressed with it to perform a particular function.

My grand daughter has some how turned on the FN key so when she is typing numbers come on the screen instead of the letters. How do we stop this ?


The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad.
The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.

How to unlock keypad of q mobile e900


Try this.
It stumped myself and some true experts once. We were having problems with the keyboard in a darkened room.
There is a Function ( "F" or "FN") key on the lower left of the keyboard. It's labeling is often blue in color. In low light conditions, you cannot see the blue coloring. It is used to turn a section of the keyboard into a calculator. That section will have dark blue numbers written on the keys that change function. For example the K may have a dark blue number 2 written on it. In other words, When you type the Alphabet you come up with some numbers substituted for letters and not all of the keys may function.
IN YOUR CASE PUSH THE FUNCTION KEY DOWN AND WHILE HOLDING IT DOWN PUSH THE KEY FOR THE CALCULATOR. IT SHOULD THEN RELEASE YOUR KEYBOARD FOR NORMAL USE. Hope this helps you.

Best Regards,
Mark

Typing problems


I have a cat that has probably written the Great American Novel by now, so I sympathize. Please check to see that the numlock key is not depressed or the shift/function key combination will not solve your problem.
