While not really used for anything today, Scroll Lock used to serve a purpose in DOS text editors - if it was on, and you'd press the Down arrow on your keyboard, the document would scroll down. If it was off, you would move your cursor to the line below it.
It should also work on Microsoft Excel - try it. Open up Excel, make sure Scroll Lock is on, and press the Down or Up arrows. Now turn it off, and see what happens.
If you don't know how to turn it off, search for a key marked "Scroll Lock" or any short versions of that name. If it's in a different color, you may need to press Fun+ScrollLock for the light to go off.
the quickest way around this as there is no scroll lock button the these keyboards is to your the on screen keyboard.
If using xp go to start>run and type in osk press enter, an on screen keyboard will appear. Click on the slk key and this will turn off the scroll lock, then close the on screen keyboard. Promblem solved.
If using vista follow the instuctions above but go to start>all programs>accessories>run
to access the run program
Initially, have you checked/pressed on the "Scroll Lock" key (between Print Screen & Pause). To my knowledge, on most keyboards, the three common indicator lights are: Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Turn the key? :-) No, seriously not sure what you mean by locking the keys. Did you restart your computer? Have you tried the keyboard on another computer. Check the status of the Num-Lock, Scroll-Lock, Caps-Lock, or F-Lock. Hope this helps.
On the Logitech LX710 Lazer the Scroll Lock option is toggled by holding down the "Function" key and pressing the "Pause/Break" key. If you look at the P/B key you will see a little orange symbol of an arrow pointing down to remind you of this feature. This can be disabled in the Setpoint panel by selecting Keyboard and Keyboard Inactive Keys then place a check in Disable Scroll Lock so you may have to remove a check mark first.
1. Click on Start and click on "Run" 2. Type osk and click OK. 3. You will see the On Screen Keyboard (OSK) 4.
If the "nlk" button is white, it will be a visible key on your
keyboard. Blue is when the key is not visible and the dark blue with
the red border when the NumLock is ON. 5. Please make sure the "nlk" button is blue. 6. You will also the display on your monitor when the slk button is clicked or changed on the OSK.
