Disable shortcut dell latitude

I have a Dell latitude E5110. I apparently accidentally created a hot key or shortcut. Every time I type the B button, the cursor jumps to another part of the screen. How do I disable this shortcut or hot key and how do I prevent accidentally creating one in the future? Thanks!

    This problem has nothing to do with my touchpad or cursor. Thanks :)

Reply-r Jans,

In Windows XP:
To turn off hot keys go to Start Button->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services and scroll down until you find the service name HID Input Service.
Double-left-click on this service and change the Startup Type to disabled. Click Apply and then OK. Close out your open windows and restart your computer and the hot keys should not trouble you.

Windows 7:

Thank You,

Unable to connect to Wifi. Computer says WLAN card is disabled. Use internet switch or hot key. Can't find switch and don't know what a Hot Key is.


The dell D520 doesn't have any switch to power off the wireless. You will have to use the hot-key method. Just press Fn+F2. If you have curiosity:
In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a finite set of one or more keys that invoke a software or operating system operation when triggered by the user.

I have a Dell Latitude E6500 and I think it has numerous shortcut keys that I did not define. Thus it zooms in on documents when I don't want it to, creates new documents when I do not want it to, will...


Most programmes utilise keyboard shortcuts.
It says which key combinations will perform which command next to the options on the drop down menus when you click on file, edit, view, etc.
These shortcuts usually a letter key in combination with ctrl key, alt key , sometimes ctrl+shift.
Possibly you are pressing the ctrl key at same time when you press the shift key?

The screen is upside down, the arrow keys are backward, the mouse moves opposite your intentions. Please help


Hi,
 
Hold down the <CTRL> key and press the UP arrow, or any of the directional arrows. This is the shortcut key for rotating the display.
 
This can also be disabled in the “Intel Graphics Properties” by unchecking “Enable Hot Keys”  under the Hot Keys section and unchecking “Enable Rotation” in the intel display settings
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Dell model DHM DESKTOP which is stuck while plug in .


Try this out:

1. Hold down the Start (Windows Flag Key) button on your keyboard and press R

2. Type this Command : shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

This will shutdown all running programs and shutdown windows Instantly.

Optionally you can create a desktop shortcut to do this automatically. Here is how:

1. Right click on any blank space of windows desktop -> New -> Shortcut. A “Create Shortcut” window will open.

2. In the blank, type in:
shutdown.exe -s -f -t 0
It means, shutdown and wait for Zero second. Click “Next” button for next step.

3. Type in whatever name you like in the blank. I use “Turn Off PC”. Then, click “Finish” button.

4. You are finished . A new shutdown shortcut has been created on your windows desktop!

Just click on it to shutdown.
