Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 4000 Keyboard/Mouse

1 Answer

Mac 64-no Ctrl x,c,v etc. function keys dead

Just got this set and can't get any response from the command type keystrokes mentioned above and other on the keyboard. Types fine and I like it a lot but want total functionality. Is there some basic incompatibility I'm not going to get fixed ('cuz I'm using it with a Mac-although the box says it's Mac compatible) or a downloadable fix. I shut down and started over and no change. Not using the mouse that came with the set, rather a logitec rollerball and the new keyboard. MS website useless. Thanks for the help. Katy

I could be wrong but it sounds like your keyboard layout is set to swype instead of qwerty. On the bottom left of the keyboard is the setting option.

Dell laptop inspiron 1525 spacebar sometimes acts like enter key


Since you don't mention your operating system, I'll just try to help generically. In the Control Panel, find where your keyboard icon is and open it. Somewhere in the contents of the windows opened by different tabs, you should see an opportunity to reset your keyboard to its "defaul settings". I'd recommend that.

Many Dell's have what are called "'sticky keys" where if you do a certain number of keystrokes repeatedly, the laptop thinks you want to change a certain key to do a different command.

If this doesn't solve your issue, it's possible that a short of some kind has wires activating commands they should not. If that is the case, there may not be a less expensive nor easier to replace keyboard than on a Dell.

Good Luck

Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.

By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.

In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.

This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

Logitech cordless keyboard types


usually there is a way to install back to factory setting. Ctrl + Alt +suspend macro. Logitech may have this combination not sure what it might be. Look at suspend macro keys or remapping of keyboard fora solution from logitech. Otherwise you may have to take the batteries out and leave them out for a short time then try to reboot to the receiver and see if this works.
