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

Where is my Dell computers Command key?


The Command Key is only found in Mac computers. It gives shortcuts to common commands by using the keyboard. The Control Key (CTRL) gives the same function in Windows computers. Therefore, the Command Key on Dell computers or any other windows-based computer is the Control Key (CTRL).
For Example...
  1. CTRL + C = Copy
  2. CTRL + V = Paste
  3. CTRL + S = Save
  4. CTRL + X = Cut
  5. CTRL + Shift Key + S = Save As

Sounds like you're using the "Spaces" function and inadvertently causing it to activate. Sometimes an extra keystroke will cause this...
Try accessing the shortcut control panel in the system preferences..It's in the keyboard/mouse control.
You can set the keyboard shortcut to default or scroll thru the list and check for typical wordprocessing keystrokes that may be controling Spaces... try disabling it.

Q key keps printing


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.
sksettings.jpg
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.

Problems with laptop keyboard


Sounds like some of the keyboard settings have gotten changed. Begin by checking the System Parameters for Keyboard/Mice and verify that these are as follows:

Caps Lock = Caps Lock
Control Key = Control Key
Option Key = Option Key
Command = Command

If they are not, just press the RESTORE DEFAULTS setting and LOCK your Systems Parameter Page before closing it. Reboot your system and check keyboard operation.

Hope this helps,
