    The suggestion didn't help . I opened the keyboard icon in the control panel but in the settings there were no settings for the keys that I could change. I do have Vista Home Premium. Now when I log on to my other user it works. So it is only my user that has the problem.

Hope that will help some. Bud

Re Keyboard 57KBOBL: Explaoin symbols above the F keysOne is a compuer--another a half-moon (sleep button), but then there's a *=star and a check box and a house and music notes etc.


These Keys are multimedia and internet hotkeys. The House would take you to your home page in your default web browser, the half moon is a sleep button, the music notes will open up (by default) your My Music folder.

What function do the keys along the top of the KG 0570 keyboard perform?


If you are talking about the special function keys, their function is determined by the program you are using. Normally, you won't use them. The exception is the F1 key which is universally used for "help."

If you want to check if the software is installed correctly and the keyboard is working fine try using the multimedia key. If you are able to use the multimedia keys for reducing and increasing the volume or mute the sound that means it is working fine.

If you are trying to configure the Favorite keys then you will have to select the buttons from the software and link it to the particular program of your choice.

Open the software application

Select the button that you want to configure

Click on the browse button to select the program of your choice to open with that button.

There are so many buttons on the Microsoft Laser Desktop 4000 keyboard and I would like to loearn how to use all of them without wasting a lot of time. Why aren't there any instructions and how do I learn...


On the left side of the keyboard you'll find a few function keys. From bottom to top we have the Web/Home, which simply opens up your primary web browser as you'd expect. Gadgets is a Vista exclusive, but I'm confused as to it's actual usefulness. If the windows Sidebar is closed, pushing this button will open it. Mail and Call both open up Windows specific applications, Windows Mail and Windows Messenger. Lastly we have the My Documents button which is self explanatory. The zoom feature is one of the best on this keyboard in my opinion. It explains itself really, but you have the ability to slide it up or down to zoom in and out on a webpage or photo. Many keyboards instead just have buttons for accomplishing this, but a slider makes it feel more natural.

Up top we have the usual slew of media shortcuts including video or music playback buttons. The "My Favorites" keys are shortcuts to anything you want, whether it be a certain file, application or game. The little Star button below these brings up the dialog to set up these keys, which I will touch on shortly.

There are three buttons above the numpad, and though difficult to read in a photograph, they are Calculator, Log Off and Sleep. I am a personal fan of the Calculator shortcut on media keyboards as I reference it often.

Someone is probably playing a prank on you. Disable the services one by one until you find the program that is assigning those programs hotkeys so programs can't run with hotkeys.
