    No Problem. Simply follow the steps in the instructions I gave you. All F# keys added as a shortcut key will simply be associated with the single key. (Ex. F12 will be F12).

    Any other key selected will fill into the Crtl + Alt + Key combination.

    thank you so much! I will do that. thanks again...

Right click the browser icon on your desktop and select properties.One of the tabs should say "Shortcut."
Under the shortcut tab is a text field called "Shortcut key."(1) Click on the field and then (2) press the key on your keyboard you want to associate with the shortcut.
Your shortcut key will be Crtl + Alt + Key.
This solution works for Windows. Some key combinations can not be used. You can find those here.

I have just bought a second hand Compaq 5185 keyboard and I would like to know how to configure the special top buttons. Some work, others don't.


Certain models of HP desktop computer come with an "Internet Keyboard" packaged in with the other equipment. This Internet Keyboard differs from a regular keyboard in that it has a series of buttons along the sides that allow you to do things like open your Web browser with the tap of a button. You can reassign the actions to these keys and reprogram it away from its default settings using your Control Panel.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Keyboard." Click the "Hardware" tab, then click the "Properties" button. Click the listing for the Internet keyboard key you want to change. In the "Target" box, select the program you want that key to open. Click "Apply." The specified key will now open the specified program. Repeat this step for all of the other keys on your Internet keyboard that you want to configure.

Hp laptop keyboard won't type "b n 1"or ''tab esc'' other keys ok..


Either your keyboard cable needs to be reseated or your keyboard is going bad and needs to be replaced. The keyboard cable is under the keyboard and it attaches to a slot on the motherboard. You'll have to partially disassemble the laptop to get to it. Hopefully you're not having this problem because you spilled a liquid on the keyboard.

Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

Hi, i have a toshiba x205-s9800. my two year old seems to have accidently pressed some keys and disabled the keyboard...please help...


You could have deleted the keyboard in the device manager. If so, rebooting your computer and it will find it.
Are all the keys not working or just some? Take a look at this hint and see if it fits.

I keep getting 'SCRPT' Errors on some websites and I am warned that if I continue running the script my computer will stop-& stops.


Hi

You don't say which operating system or which browser you use, so my advice can only be general rather than specific.

This seems to be a browser settings issue.

Open your browser > Tools > (Internet) Options > Advanced > tick Disable Script Debugging (for your particular browser type) > untick Display Notofication for Every Script Error > Apply > OK


I hope this helps.

I have a Logitech cordless ex110 keyboard that I would like to find an online manual for....I have no idea what the 'F' keys do and every once in a while I hit something (?) that converts my /,...


Did you install the Logitech Set Point software? If you did, you can edit the Function key assignments by opening that program. There are other ways to change your keyboard settings, pressing Left Alt and Shift can do this with Windows 7 by default. To check this in Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel. Under Clock, Language, and Region select Change Keyboard or other Input method. Once that window opens, click on the Keyboards and Languages tab and click Change Keyboards. Then select the Advanced Key Settings tab. There is a section marked Hot Keys for Input Language.

The manual and other documentation for the Logitech ex110 is available here: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/433/154?selectedcrid=433&selectedcid=154&WT.z_sp=Product&osid=&bit= .

I hope this helps.

Wont let me sign into skype disk 1/0 error


Try uninstalling and reinstalling Skype. If there is still and issue after that try the following. If you are still having an issue then contact Skype Support directly. They are pretty good at responding.


1) Quit Skype by right-clicking on the system tray icon

2) open the Windows 'Run' dialog by holding the Windows key down and pressing the 'R' key on your keyboard

3) Enter %appdata%\skype and press the Enter key

4) Windows Explorer should open and you should be able to locate the folder name that corresponds to the problem Skype Name

5) delete that folder (& subfolders)

6) restart Skype and sign in that Skype Name again


All CHAT HISTORY and custom Skype client settings (if any) for this user will be deleted when you do this (it should be easy to reconfigure any custom settings later), but this user's Contact List will NOT be lost as it is backed up on Skype servers and it will be restored automatically


if you are concerned that this remedy will NOT work, and that you're going to lose stuff in the process, you can MOVE the folder (& subfolders) mentioned in step #4 somewhere else on your PC for safekeeping -- that way you can move it back if the above procedure does not fix your issue -- but don't forget to shutdown Skype again and remove what Skype has newly-created BEFORE moving the 'backup' folders to their original location

I have both IE8_64 and 32 Bit on my WIN7 ultimate. When the browser opens a new window it's small and I always have to resize larger or go full size. The browsers will not remember the window size. Could...


The next time you open the browser. Maximise the Browser from the top right corner.

Then click on ALT key on your keyboard.

Now press and keep holding the CTRL key on your keyboard.

Now go to File option on the top left using your mouse on your browser and choose the option Exit.

Make sure when you exit from the browser the size of the browser should be maximum.

( Note:- you need to keep holding the CTRL key on your keyboard while you are clicking on the exit option..)

Now After you exit you can let go the CTRL key on your keyboard and then try to open the Same Browser again.

Tell me if it resolves your issue.

It should come in maximise size.
