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.

How do I reverse selections on number pad? I presume it is achieved with a key stroke like the caps lock. Which one?


I am not clear on what you want to do ... you don't want to put the 1 where the 7 is ... do you?

You can set your key pad to be numbers or you can use the other features listed on the keys, To change between numbers and features, you press the "Num Lock" key which is normally just above the 7 key.

If you do want to put the 1 where the 7 in, for example, you will have to remap your keyboard. And this is entirely possible ... I am not going into that detail here ... it is beyond the scope of what happens here normally. You can find instructions for remapping from Dell or any other fine computer manufacturer. Also, if you want to pursue this, you could 'goggle' remap my keyboard' for instructions.

The hyphen key has stopped working, can i remap it for another key? how?


I don't think it's good to do that and I don't know if it can be done. I suggest you go to Accessories and click the onscreen keyboard.

My laptop is new @ a key was pushed now the keys type a #


I agree with cra1901. An alternative way of changing the layout is: right clicking on your taskbar and select "language bar". When this is done, right click on the keyboard symbol and select "settings". Change the default language (to UK) and your keyboard should type correctly.

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.

Gateway keyboard shift key creating special characters when used


This is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://www.sportmachines.com/keyboard/

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.

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/
