    I also have this problem with a Microsoft Keyboard. And I can't use F3 to find something in Mozilla Firefox. Would really like a solution, thanks

    I have the exact same problem - no 'F' keys are working. This includes alt+F4 to close programs, F2 in excel to enter data in a cell, F5 for refresh....anybody know how to fix it?



    Im using Vista, a Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 3000 keyboard, Dell Inspiron Desktop.



    Cheers

Hello,

To solve this problem you must to use on your keyboard the key "F verr.f." near the "print screen" key. After lock it, you can used the ALT+Fx combination.

Letter between c and b wont work! its the paste code key also and I dont recall using it to paste anything Whmat's your problem?


Of course, it wont work because you used a wrong short cut key. The correct short cut command for copying is press the control C simultaneously then for pasting it, it should control V simultaneously. Try it again using the right short cut command. Good luck!

Hi. the touchpad on my Dell Latitude D620 has somehow been disabled or jus quit working..idk which. so am trying to install a ge wireless optical mouse HO97985......WK2004 with usb receiver.how do i get...


If it was disabled try this. push the FN or function key, found near the lower left of the keyboard. Hold that down and then push the F10 or F12 key. Should be F10 on that model. That should turn it back on. The pads are pretty reliable and I've actually only ever seen one die in about 15 years.

If you are stuck installing then plug the mouse in and boot. It should actually find the mouse as new software and install a default driver. You may have to reboot it once after before it works. To work without a mouse you use the tab and spacebar. Tab mose from one box to another and space acts like a mouse click. Alt tab moves from one program to another. And to close use alt -F4 and to shut down use alt-f4. You shouldn;t need to do that if you boot with the mouse in the usb so it finds it.

Advise uses of all F Keys.?.


Hi,

F1

Almost always used as the help key, almost every program will open the help screen when this key is pressed.

Windows Key + F1 would open the Microsoft Windows help and support center.

Open the Task Pane.


F2

In Windows commonly used to rename a highlighted icon or file.

Alt + Ctrl + F2 opens a new document in Microsoft Word.

Ctrl + F2 displays the print preview window in Microsoft Word.


F3

Often opens a search feature for many programs including Microsoft Windows.

Shift + F3 will change the text in Microsoft Word from upper to lower case or a capital letter at the beginning of every word.


F4

Open find window.

Repeat the last action performed (Word 2000+)

Alt + F4 will close the program currently active in Microsoft Windows.

Ctrl + F4 will close the open window within the current active window in Microsoft Windows.


F5

In all modern Internet browsers pressing F5 will refresh or reload the page or document window.

Open the find, replace, and go to window in Microsoft Word.

Starts a slideshow in PowerPoint.

F Keys aren't working, nor Alt-F4


Do you have an F-Lock button on your keyboard? Most of the time that is the culprit of this problem.

How do I get the PrtScn key to print the screen?


Download this utility that will make PrtScr easier to do:
Once installed, Purrint places an icon on the system tray, though I'd say it's more comfortable to use with the keyboard itself. Now, every time you press the PrtScr key (or the Alt+PrtScr shortcut to capture the active window) a window will open and offer you the possibility to copy the image to the clipboard (as the standard key would do), save it as an image file or send it to your printer right away.

Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wireless 1000 keyboard not supporting standard Windows F-keys


I had the same problem. I just could not get the "Alt-F4" function to work in a macro.

In the Macro Editor, in the lower center, you will see the "Z" actions. I realized I wanted the "Press and hold Z" function.

To get this, use "Inserting Special..." function to insert the Alt key stroke in the macro.

Then highlight the Alt in the Editor. Right Click and select "Split."

This will put the "Press and hold Z key" and "Release Z key" icons in the Editor.

What you want is the "Press and hold" function. Delete any other references the the Alt key.

Then enter the F4 key, and there you have it.

Hope this all makes sense to you.

Keyboard is shot. They do that due to the heat laptops generate. I've probably replaced 200 laptop keyboards in the past 5 years. You can buy one on ebay for about $21.00. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HP-COMPAQ-Presario-2100-2500-Keyboard-317443-001_W0QQitemZ190124162270QQihZ009QQcategoryZ116289QQcmdZViewItem Ray
