Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0

1 Answer

I seemed to have developed a hotkey of sorts. When I hit a period while typing it goes to the upper left corner of whatever program I'm using and the dialog box opens. If I'm typing fast I can suddenly find myself with a closed screen wondering what the heck happened. Reinstalled 5 times, reset everything to default and nothing is working. Driving me crazy!

    Desktop w/XP Pro 2002 with SP2
    Keyboard is Microsoft wireless laser 6000 vs 2 (Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard Intellitype Pro) with driver
    Mistake on posting category, Delete keyboard and the mouse goes too.
    I had recently set the 5 favorite keys to folder shortcuts, but have long since changed batteries, uninstall/reinstall, update drivers, and set everything to default. So it may be related.
    No problems with any keys sticking.

    Need more specifics. Is this a laptop? - make, model. If desktop, type of keyboard, OS? Why is this posted under Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0? Sounds like a key may be sticking.

Normal 0 Are you using Windows Vista? If you are then go to Control Panel.
1. Click on PRINTERS.
2. When the Printer Properties come up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the key to be setup.
In your case look in the different Key setting drop downs and find which on has the period set and change it or DISABLE it.

Hope this helps. Bud

Texas Instrument TI-83 Plus error message ERR:MEMORY and the number keys won't work

Hit the "2nd" button in the upper left hand corner of the keypad, and then the "+" button (lower right hand corner). Then either click the down arrow once and then "enter" or just hit the "2" button. (the selection should say "2: Mem Mgmt/Del...") Hit Enter again (selecting the "1: All..." selection) Scroll through the programs on her calculator and either hit the "Del" button (upper right hand corner of the keypad) to delete the programs/variables, or hit "ENTER" to archive them. The archived programs have an asterisk, " * ", in front of them. (Note: Once you delete the programs, you CAN NOT get them back) If you have variables on there "L1" "A" etc. you can delete them and use them again later, obviously.

You can bypass this whole thing and just do "2nd" "+" "7". This combination will reset the calculator and delete any programs that are unimportant to the calculator. You will be left with the "Finance..." option in the APPS menu only...nothing else. You should be able to clear up the problem either way.

Canon printer MP470: I have never been able to use the OCR. Can you tell me how to click, click, click to do OCR? I go to MP Navigator/ One Click/ OCR/ then it says specify program where scanned...

Dear Tom,

No problem, you're a mere 17 steps away from creating a high-quality document using Canon's cutting-edge OCR software!

1. Load doc onto platen.

2. Press "SCAN" button.

3. Make sure "DOCUMENT" bar is yellow and press "OK" button.

4. Make sure "SCAN TO PC" button is yellow and press "OK" button.

5. Press "BLACK" button (w/ white diamond on it) located under the word "START" (might take a couple of tries as this button tends to stick a little.)

6. On computer screen, find image of doc that was just scanned and select it by clicking on little check box under image so a check appears. MAKE SURE NO OTHER DOCS ARE SELECTED AND/OR DE-SELECT THEM NOW.

7. On computer screen, find "double chevron" bar in lower left-hand corner and click on it.

8. Click on "EDIT/CONVERT."


10. This will bring up a new window. Click on the "blue arrow" with "1-2-3" next to it, located in upper left-hand corner of computer screen.

11. This will bring up a new window with three buttons to choose from. Click on the middle button, which says "PROCESS ALL UNRECOGNIZED PAGES"

12. This should start the OCR process and bring up a new window.

13. At this point, I just hit "CANCEL" and highlight & copy the OCR text by myself. (This will allow you to get around the "SPECIFY PROGRAM" program you referred to in your post.)

14. Then I open a new doc in Word (or whatever word processing program you use) and paste it directly into the new doc.

15. Then I save it into whatever folder I need to save it in.

16. Make sure to read through the doc and correct any OCR typos and/or "artifacts."

17. Save one more time to make sure you don't lose your work and you're done!

OPTIONAL 18th STEP: Open a beer and do a big bong hit -- you've earned it, soldier!
