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

I hope this helps

SOURCE: Scroll Lock on -- mystery

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.

SOURCE: Cannot unlock Keyboard Scroll lock - EX110

Why did Logitech remove Scroll Lock from some of its newer keyboards?
Historically, Scroll Lock is used much less today than in the past. And if enabled by accident, Scroll Lock can cause issues in certain applications, such as Microsoft Excel.
If a user does not know how to disable Scroll Lock, only rebooting the PC can do so. Based on a recent study, we learned that Scroll Lock is among the top 5 least used keys. Logitech therefore decided to remove Scroll Lock from the following keyboards:

  • Cordless Desktop EX 100
  • Cordless Desktop EX 110
  • Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser.
  • diNovo Media Desktop
  • diNovo Media Desktop Laser
  • diNovo Cordless Desktop for Notebooks
  • Access Keyboard 600 (this is the only corded keyboard without SLK).

All other Logitech keyboards have the SLK key or the SLK key combo of FN + Pause/Break.

Removing Scroll Lock was done to make these keyboards more user-friendly to the majority of users.
However we now realize there are more users in need of Scroll Lock than anticipated. Therefore Logitech has decided to reinstate Scroll Lock (as FN + Pause/Break) on all future keyboards. We are not doing this however to support KVM switch use.

There are two options for those Windows users in need of a Scroll Lock function for the previously listed keyboards.

Option 1. (For Windows XP only, and SetPoint does not have to be installed.)
Go to Start → All Programs → Accessories → Accessibility → On-Screen Keyboard.
Toggle the on-screen keyboard’s “slk” key to switch Scroll Lock On/Off with the mouse left click button. The screen will show Scroll Lock ON or Scroll Lock OFF.

In addition, the On-Screen Keyboard can be assigned to a hotkey in SetPoint. For this SetPoint must be installed.
To assign the On-Screen Keyboard to a hotkey:
  1. Open SetPoint and click on the “My Keyboard” tab.
  2. Select the hotkey you want to assign the On-Screen Keyboard to, such as Home or Search.
  3. Under “Select Task”, select “Launch Program”. The option “Select Program” will appear.
  4. Under “Select Program”, type osk.exe in the Program box.
  5. Click on OK to save and close the SetPoint window.
When you press the hotkey, the On-Screen Keyboard will appear and you may toggle Scroll Lock on and off as previously stated. The screen will show the ON/OFF status.


Option 2. (For all Windows and SetPoint must be installed)
  1. The keyboard needing the scroll lock function must be connected to the PC.
  2. Temporarily connect another keyboard which has a Scroll Lock key. (The temporary keyboard does not have to be recognized by SetPoint).
  3. Open SetPoint and click on the “My Keyboard” tab.
    (If more than one keyboard is listed under My Keyboard, be sure to select the keyboard you wish to assign the Scroll Lock function to.)
  4. Select the hotkey you want to use as Scroll Lock, such as Home or Search.
  5. Under Select Task, select “Keystroke Assignment.”
  6. Click in the “Specify Keystroke box to make sure the cursor is blinking.
  7. Press the Scroll Lock key on the temporary keyboard.
  8. Click OK on the SetPoint window to save the setting and close the window.
  9. Disconnect the temporary keyboard.
When you press the hotkey the screen will show Scroll Lock ON or Scroll Lock OFF.

Release the scroll key


    • 1 Open and power on the laptop.
    • 2 Wait for the laptop to fully boot.
    • 3 Locate the "Scroll" button at the top-left of the keyboard. It is under the volume panel and between the "F12" and "Pause" keys.
    • 4 Press the "Scroll" button.
    • 5 Test it by opening a spreadsheet and using the arrow keys to move around on it. You can open your Microsoft Excel program or create a spreadsheet online by using Google Docs (free online productivity software). The "Scroll Lock" function will keep the current cell selected while the screen moves.
    • 6 Press "Scroll Lock" again to turn it off.

What is the symbol with the light indicator for?


That's the Scroll Lock indicator.

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.

Not able to scroll on my excel sheet


It's only in Excel you can't scroll? Can you scroll from side to side? If you have Excel 2003, try to press the "window" tab on the top and if the freeze pane is checked, uncheck it. Or if it says unfreeze pane, press that one. Hope this helps :)

Status light on upper right illuminated - how to turn it off?


Hi,

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.

Scroll lock in excel 2007


When SCROLL LOCK is on, "SCRL" appears on the Excel status bar. If you press the arrow keys when SCROLL LOCK is on, you scroll one row up or one row down. Or, you scroll one column to the left or one column to the right. To use the arrow keys to move between cells, you must turn SCROLL LOCK off.
