If you are on Vista (Maybe XP has it too), go to the Classic View in the Control panel/Default Programs. At the bottom click on "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults" From there, follow your nose back to the one you want--down carrets open some choices. My KB-0532 was set to "custom" and then it let me chose my browser, mail program, etc.

German keyboard layout problem


The uses for mapping your keyboard are numerous, but remapping your keyboard's keys is not for the squeamish.
There are numerous software applications to map and remap a keyboard's keys.
The best part is that the software is free and easily downloadable via the Internet.
So, go ahead and swap those unused keys on your keyboard to suit your computing experience, and make your keyboard more effective without fear of damaging your computer

Place your mouse pointer over a key on the visual keyboard. Notice that the key is numbered.
To see what function the key is currently assigned to, allow your mouse pointer to hover over the key.
A pop-up displays what the key is attributed to.
Left-click the mouse pointer on a key you wish to change.
Click on Choose New Remapping from the drop-down menu.
Select Remap Key from the Control area on the interface.
You may also opt to disable or enable the key, and reset the default for this key.

Left-click Apply. Look at the list box at the top-left of the interface, labeled "Remapped keys currently in effect."
Ensure that the keyor keys you selected are listed in this list box.

Fix a mistake by resetting the defaults.
Click on the top button adjacent to the list box you just visited.
Pressing this button will remove all the changes to your keyboard mapping.
SharpKeys is a Registry hack that is used to make certain keys on a keyboard act like other keys.

Is it possible to use any alternate key for my damaged enter key


Hi there,

the only option apart from replacing the keyboard (which is easy but usually fairly expensive) would be to use the on screen keyboard which you control using the mouse.
you activate the on screen keyboard through Programs->accessories->ease of access and select on screen keyboard

Hope this helps

When i flip open my phone push the message key it tekes me to contacts and the clear key thinks it is a send key and the 5 thinks it is a short cut key do i need a new phone?


If you are pressing on the display portion, then your touch screen matrix is out of adjustment or damaged. You should be able to align it. Assuming you have a touch screen.

For the physical keys, they may have been remapped by a prankster, the ribbon cable (to / from keyboard) may be coming loose, or you may have a "function" key staying on / stuck.

Save your data to an external card (contacts, messages, etc). Reset the phone, then try again. If still not working like it should, reset the phone back to factory defaults (wipes out everything!). And check again. If not working still, then you are looking at a hardware failure unless you have a stuck key (as mentioned above).

As I am typing on my computer, the cursor bar goes to the beginning and continues my typing from that point. It's really hard to type and then have to go back and fix all the errors, especially since I am...


Either you are pressing the HOME key on the keyboard - it should fall somewhere under your right ring and little fingers - or the HOME key is defective, i.e., stays half-way pressed. Check it if it "feels" different. If it does, Dell keys may be removed by GENTLY lifting them with a fingernail from the bottom and twisting them upwards. Ensure there's no grit, dust, or hair under the key, and verify that the little pod below the key feels right (if it doesn't, the keyboard will have to be replaced. You can find instructions on Dell support site, and a brand new 1525 keyboard should set you back around US$ 15 on eBay). To put the key back in place, position it where it should stay and push it down firmly, first on the top then on the bottom, until it clicks.

If your problem is typing on the HOME key by mistake (or maybe the Ctrl-H key or some other, depending on your word processing software), maybe you can have benefit from one of the many freeware programs known as "keyboard remappers". Just remap the HOME key to something harmless (e.g. shift) when starting the word processing session and remap it back once you're finished.

My letter A button is broken


Pull it off and use air duster to blow dust out and put the button back on the keyboard. If its still broken, you need to buy a new keyboard.

Alternatively you can remap the "a" key to another key you do not use. See here: http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/remap-keyboard.htm for how to do that manually.

Otherwise there are many apps that can do this.

Here are 2 free ones I recommend:

http://webpages.charter.net/krumsick/
http://www.autohotkey.com/ <- I like his program alot but it does more than key mapping. Its a full macro and hotkey application. Possibly more than you need.

Logitech cordless keyboard types


usually there is a way to install back to factory setting. Ctrl + Alt +suspend macro. Logitech may have this combination not sure what it might be. Look at suspend macro keys or remapping of keyboard fora solution from logitech. Otherwise you may have to take the batteries out and leave them out for a short time then try to reboot to the receiver and see if this works.

Euro key


You can try the free KeyTweak program to remap the euro key or just plain disable it. To remap the key means changing the function, for example you could make the euro key into the Caps Lock key. DOWNLOAD: http://webpages.charter.net/krumsick/

Hi Brenda, the process to factory default your unit is within the System Settings menu of the programming. Push Menu, scroll to System Settings, push select, enter your pin, push select, push backward key one, push select twice and you just defaulted your unit.
