    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.

Normal 0 Are you using Windows Vista? If you are then go to Control Panel.
1. Click on Keyboard.
2. When the Keyboard Properties come up, CLICK on KEY SETTINGS.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the key you want to change or reset to its original setting.
Hope that will help some. Bud

I have just bought a second hand Compaq 5185 keyboard and I would like to know how to configure the special top buttons. Some work, others don't.


Certain models of HP desktop computer come with an "Internet Keyboard" packaged in with the other equipment. This Internet Keyboard differs from a regular keyboard in that it has a series of buttons along the sides that allow you to do things like open your Web browser with the tap of a button. You can reassign the actions to these keys and reprogram it away from its default settings using your Control Panel.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Keyboard." Click the "Hardware" tab, then click the "Properties" button. Click the listing for the Internet keyboard key you want to change. In the "Target" box, select the program you want that key to open. Click "Apply." The specified key will now open the specified program. Repeat this step for all of the other keys on your Internet keyboard that you want to configure.

Keyboard meaning


Hi,

With the indulgence of the other posters.

The Acer Aspire AST180-UD400B or better known as Aspire T180 comes with a standard keyboard as shown below

2dba419.jpg

Should this be what you have, the basic keys on the top left are:
Esc - Escape key. It is basically a shortcut to STOP or get out of a program sequence. Often this is as a shortcut key for the Stop button in many web browsers
F1 - usually launches a program's Help Guide
F2 - usually launches Rename command
F3 - usually launches Find or Search command
F4 - formerly a DOS for launching previous OS but currently used in conjunction with Alt that closes an active, open window and/or exits a program. With no active, open windows, it prompts you to exit.

If for some reason your keyboard is different, it is possible that the dealer could have bundled a different/after market keyboard such as those web or multimedia as shown below. The top left keys then would be either for web browser shortcut keys or multimedia shortcut keys or some other specialized functions.

Should this be the case, pls post back with the brand/model which may be determined by looking at the bottom or any of the markings at the top.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kindest regards.

Shortcuts have locked up on my pc


Conflicting Extensions


Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.


Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.


Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.


Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.


Key Reassignments


Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.


If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.


For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.


If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

Virus Infection


Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.


If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.


Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.


Browser Software


Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.


Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.


For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.


Hope this helps.

My keys of my keyboard aren't working, what can i do to solve my problem? ( just especific keys aren't working )


The keyboard may be faulty or the keyboard chip on the motherboard may be faulty.
To determine id it is a motherboard problem, connect an USB keyboard into ythe laptop's USB port and if the keyboard works correctly then the laptop's keyboard needs to be replaced.
A replacement keyboard may be available from this WEB site.

The buttons along the top are multimedia buttons. They are shortcuts for your computer's music player software, and internet browsing. From left to right:

Back (usually for browser back button)
Forward (usually for browser forward button)
Stop
Reload Page
Open Web Browser
My Documents
Homepage (for browser)
Email (opens computer email program, not WEBMAIL such as gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc.)
Mute
Sleep
Volume Down
Volume Up
Play / Pause
Stop
Rewind
Fast Forward
Play Audio CD

I'm not quite sure what the next two buttons are for!
Hope this helped!

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."

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.

Shift key shuts down my computer


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.
