Why the f8 key dont work in my pc?


What type of computer ?

What are you trying to do ?

Enter safe mode ?
Because of the small amount of space available, many smaller-screened Dell laptops come with a special key known as the "Function," or "Fn" key. The purpose of this key is to double the functions of multiple keys, most commonly the F1 through F12 keys. On some Dell laptops, the F1 through F12 keys are locked from use to give way to more commonly accessed commands and program shortcuts. However, unlocking an "F" key, such as F8, is not difficult.

Press and hold the "Fn" key on your laptop's keyboard. This key will usually be shaded blue and is located in the bottom row. Press the F8 key on your keyboard while still holding the "Fn" key. This will have unlocked the F8 key. Repeat steps 1 and 2 as necessary to unlock any other "F" keys you wish to use.

The Five ways to make your keyboard easier to use


5 ways to make your keyboard
easier to use For most people, the keyboard is the main way to enter information into and control their computer. But are you controlling your keyboard, or is your keyboard controlling you?
If you make typing mistakes or find your keyboard a bit uncomfortable, it’s not hard to correct those problems. Here’s how to quickly and easily change your keyboard settings and comfort options.
1. Get to know your keyboardEven if you’ve been using a PC for a long time, there may be features on your keyboard you don’t know about. Take a moment to get to know your keyboard so you can be more efficient when you're working.
2. Change keyboard settingsOnce you’ve gotten more familiar with your keyboard, there are a few settings you can change to help you work more smoothly.
You can alter:
  • How long you need to press a key before the keyboard character starts repeating.
  • The speed at which keyboard characters repeat, which helps you to avoid typing errors.
  • The rate at which the mouse pointer blinks, which can help its visibility.
Here's how to change keyboard settings in Windows Vista or in Windows XP .
3. Take shortcuts Even if you're a whiz with the mouse for Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP, keyboard shortcuts are typically a more efficient way to work. They're called shortcuts because they reduce multiple clicks into one quick press of keys, like hitting a chord on a piano.
Getting to know a few keyboard shortcuts for the things you do all the time, like saving or closing files, can make using your PC much easier and faster.
Here are just a few popular keyboard shortcuts that work for both versions of Windows:
Press this
To do this
Windows logo keykey_win_logo.png Open the Start menu
ALT+TAB
Switch between open programs or windows
CTRL+S
Save the current file or document (works in most programs)
CTRL+C
Copy the selected item
CTRL+Z
Undo an action
Windows logo key key_win_logo.png +F1
Display Windows Help and Support
ESC
Cancel the current task
Application key key_application.png Open a menu of commands related to a selection in a program. Equivalent to right-clicking the selection.
For more, see the detailed list of keyboard shortcuts for Windows Vista, or Windows XP. Note: shortcuts for Windows 7 are the same as those listed for Windows Vista.
4. Make it easier to press multiple keysDo you find it difficult to press multiple keys at once? For example, if pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL is an acrobatic feat, you can set up Sticky Keys. With Sticky Keys you can hit one key at a time in a keyboard shortcut. You can even set it to make a noise so you know it's working.
together.gifYou can set up Sticky Keys in Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. (Hint: Press your “SHIFT” key 5 times in a row, then click on the link, to get going with Sticky Keys in Windows 7 or Windows Vista.)
5. Find a comfortable keyboardIt might also be time for you to evaluate the ergonomics of your desktop. Microsoft offers a full line of Natural and Comfort Curve ergonomic keyboards to ensure you're comfortable when you're working on your computer. Having the right keyboard can really make a difference!
Tips for using your keyboard properly
If a new keyboard isn’t in your future, be sure to use your current keyboard properly to avoid soreness or injury to your wrists, hands, and arms. This is particularly important if you use your computer for long periods of time.
Curious about how to create a more ergonomic work space for yourself? Check out these tips to help you work more comfortably and reduce your risk of painful injuries or disorders.
Here are some general tips to help you avoid problems:
  • Place your keyboard at elbow level, with your upper arms relaxed at your sides.
  • Center your keyboard in front of you. If your keyboard has a numeric keypad, you can use the spacebar as the centering point.
  • While typing, use a light touch and keep your wrists straight.
  • When you're not typing, relax your arms and hands.
  • Take short breaks every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Type with your hands and wrists floating above the keyboard, so that you can use your whole arm to reach for distant keys instead of stretching your fingers.
  • Avoid resting your palms or wrists on any type of surface while typing. If your keyboard has a palm rest, use it only during breaks from typing.

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.

I am the new user, Kindly support me with out charging users guides on how to use ms word easily with short cut keys


Open up Word, click on Help >> MS Office Word Help and a whole bunch of online solutions will appear on the right side. Have fun.

For example:

About shortcut keys
You can quickly accomplish tasks you perform frequently by using shortcut keys - one or more keys you press on the keyboard to complete a task.

For example, pressing CTRL+B changes the selected text to bold, just as clicking Bold on the Formatting toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.) or selecting Bold in the Font dialog box (Format menu) changes the selected text to bold.

Printing a list of shortcut keys

If you frequently refer to the Help topics that list shortcut keys, you may find it helpful to keep a printed copy of those topics. In Help, locate the topic you want, and then click Print .

You can also run a macro (macro: An action or a set of actions that you can use to automate tasks. Macros are recorded in the Visual Basic for Applications programming language.) that creates a list of the current shortcut key assignments, and then print the list.

On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Macros.
In the Macros in box, click Word commands.
In the Macro name box, click ListCommands.
Click Run.
In the List Commands dialog box, click Current menu and keyboard settings.
Click OK.
On the File menu, click Print.
Customizing shortcut keys

You can customize shortcut keys in Microsoft Word by assigning shortcut keys to commands that do not already have them or by removing shortcut keys you don't want. If you don't like the changes you make, you can return to the default shortcut key settings at any time.

Using shortcut keys with different keyboard layouts or Word as your e-mail editor

Shortcut keys mentioned in the Help topics, menus, and dialog boxes refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts may not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard. If the language of the keyboard layout you are using doesn't match the language you set for Microsoft Word or Word Help, you may have to make adjustments when using shortcut keys or change your keyboard layout.

If you are using Word as your e-mail editor, some of the shortcut keys listed may not be available or may produce different results.

Re HP wireless Elite keyboard (RK713A): I am using it with a Sony notebook (Windows 7) - can the F9-F11 keys somehow remapped to something useful eg. open Outlook etc. ? (Registry?) Thanks!


Here's the Microsoft way - note that all Win7 keyboard shortcuts begin with CTRL-ALT-(your shortcut key here).

Note also that a desktop shortcut must already exist to which to be invoked by the keyboard shortcut.....

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Create-keyboard-shortcuts-to-open-programs

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The way the Internet community does it:
www.autohotkey.com - freeware - allows you to "package" a number of
keystrokes into a "keyboard macro" and invoke that macro thru
the use of a "hotkey." Keyboard macros can be as short as one
function key, but some Win7 function keys cannot be ove-written, such as F5

Dell usb keyboard rt7d10, volume, etc buttons not working in windows 7 64 bit.


I found a program here that enables the buttons, you have to put the program in your startup and it will map the 7 hotkeys (7hk) to their functions.

Arrow key problem


I think you are using multimedia enabled keyboard. So check it properly, there must be some software utility installed on your system for this keyboard, use that, as it seems that the keys are fixed as shortcuts for those programs. So remove those.

Dell Inspiron 6000 keystroke ''blip'' setting


Kids :) To solve your problem first you need to find out if there is any key that is broken or loose. What you could do is 1) turn off the laptop and wipe the keyboard hardly with a towel to release one of those broken keys. 2) if this doesnt work, you need to unplug external keyboard, and then goto start-> right My Computer -> Manage -> device manager -> keyboards -> rightclick standard keyboard and disable it.

Now put in your external keyboard and test your keyboard. Dont worry your mouse is still working and you can enable your onboard keyboard again. Try this and let me know if your problem is solved or detected. If your external keyboard works, i guess there is a problem with your onboard keyboard. you would require to service it. cheers.
