SOURCE: Cannot get @ sign to work

go into control panel and regional settings and ensure all the regional settings are correct for where you live and also go back into control panel and check that you have the correct keyboard format installed.

Also in the system tray at the bottom right there should be a little arrow you can click on to select the correct keyboard format / layout.

changing keyboard language / format

You can delete the old one and set the new one as default.

If you need more help let me know

SOURCE: left alt key not functioning in pagemaker

Hello,

If you cannot access your Task Manager when Pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del, this means you have a virus on your system which has disabled the task manager. If you have a good antivirus like Norton, Kaspersky or McAfee try scanning to detect the virus.

OR

Format your system, but before doing that makesure you backup your data before doing that.

Regards

How to remove the text from the Desktop icon or from any directory or file


You can remove the text from any icon, directory or file, you just need to rename the file, directory or icon, just go to rename option and set blank name or single space-bar entry but the problem is that, windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single space-bar entry. Here interesting thing is this, window will allow you to use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160.

First of all you can clear all the text from that icon
Now type the ASCII code, simply hold the Alt key, type the number 0160 from the number pad and release the Alt key then press Enter button to finish the process. (Note. you can also put some special character in place of text by pressing some different ASCII codes like - 6560, 2456, 4251 etc......)

How to remove the text from the Desktop icon


Desktop is the interface of Windows, which contain the icons, taskbar etc. that allow the user to interact with the computer to perform different operations. Usually the picture of icon represents its purpose so if you want your desktop looking very clean then you can remove the title under the desktop icons. May be you are thinking it is so easy, just go to rename option and set blank name or single spacebar entry but the problem is this, windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single spacebar entry. Here interesting thing is this; window will allow you to use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160.
First clear all the text from that icon
Now type the ASCII code, simply hold the Alt key, type the number 0160 from the number pad and release the Alt key then press Enter button to finish the process.
But if you want to remove the text of multiple icons, then repeat the above process with adding one extra ASCII code for second icon, (for example for second icon you type the 0160 twice and for third icon type 0160 three times with Alt key and so on).

How to get the sterling pound symbol in K120 logitech keyboard


Entering the following keystroke combination will result in the Pound Sterling sign being displayed:
While holding down the ALT key, enter 0163 (ALT+0163).

This is known ASCII Code. (Pronounced Ask-key.)
A complete list of all 256 character codes is available at http://www.ascii-code.com/ .
All manner of Latin-based characters are available. Check it out.
To use any ASCII Code, choose the "HTML Number" and substitute "ALT+0" for "&#".
In this case, the HTML Number is &#163, therefore when entering text, type ALT+0163 (NOTE: "ALT+" means "While holding down the ALT key, press and release each of the four digits in sequence, then release the ALT key.)

Hope this helps.

Keyboard not functioning


It may be a fault in the keyboard driver or in the keyboard itself. However if the character you need is not available on the keyboard directly it is possible to get any character by using the ASCII char code entry method. First off search the internet for a ASCII character number associating table (for a chart I like best, check here http://michaelgoerz.net/blog/2008/09/ascii-table/ascii.gif) now on this chart you have to use common fonts (IE: Ariel, times new roman, ect.) because some of the TTF fonts do not have all the characters in them available.
Now to practice using the characters, load Notepad and find the character you want to display from the chart (note: the number like 000d and 00h actually means 000 decimal and 00 hexadecimal, only use the number with the "d" after it with this method), on Notepad, after you pick out the character you want to display, press and hold the ALT key, and on your keypad (on most keyboards it is on the right side and resembles a calculator type keypad) while holding the ALT key down enter the number of the character you want to display (do not include the "d", only the number) then release the ALT key and that character should display for you in Notepad. Almost all standard fonts has the regular characters and some has the extended characters, you will have to check to see if the font uses them by trial and error. this method is a long lost forgotten means of putting characters into your documents which does not have keys on a standard keyboard (most standard keyboards only have 101 keys so this is the only way of using all the 255 character available in common fonts).
This is a built in function of all computers that uses Microsoft OS's and even DOS, HDOS, EDOS, (well all the DOS's), and you can use them anywhere you can type anything from your keyboard, (emails, letters, databases, spread sheets, etc.) if you can type from the keyboard to any program you can use these characters in this manner.
I hope this help you out!

Number pad does not work


  1. Find Alt code.

    Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.

  2. Enable Num Lk.

    You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.

  3. Hold down "Alt" key.

    Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.

  4. Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.

    Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.

  5. Release all the keys.

    After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.

The number lock feature is enabled. You should see an indicator for the Num Lock (lit when on) that is next to the Caps Lock indicator.

You should be able to disable the lock by pressing Fn and Num Lock together on the keyboard. (On some Sony Vaio keyboards, type CTRL+ALT+NumLock or Shift+NumLock.) The number lock should be at the top of the keyboard near the F1-F12 keys. Sometimes the key is shared with the Scroll Lock function (otherwise it will be nearby). It's really easy for the Number lock to be enabled on some Sony keyboards; just some dirt between the keys can enable it when you didn't turn it on intentionally.

I hope this helps.

How to make degree sign in computer using numbers?


A better way to enter special symbols in Windows applications (such as Word), is to take advantage of the symbols in the fonts provided by Windows. For example, in Word, use the following steps:
  1. Click on "Insert" (in the menu at the top of the page)
  2. From the drop-down menu, select "Symbol". A chart of special symbols will appear
  3. From the chart, you can select a symbol to insert into your document by highlighting the symbol, and clicking on the word "Insert" at the bottom of the chart.
How do I generate extended ASCII characters from the keyboard?

  2. Press and hold the ALT key.
  3. While holding down the ALT key, enter the 3-digit decimal code for the extended ASCII character you want to generate.
  4. Release the ALT key.
