You should be able to open the software that came with the keyboard to program the 'hotkeys'.

When it asks you for the shortcut for the particular button, choose 'browse', and navigate to the "c:\program files\mozilla firefox" folder, and choose the exe file.

If you need more assistance, let me know, as all of those multimedia keyboards are different.

When I press the web/home Key it opens Firefox even though I have set Internet Explorer as my default browser.

Uninstall Firefox
Restart the PC and hit the WEB/HOME key, it should launch I.E

Start Firefox Installation and It will prompt you to Import Details from Internet Explorer, select the option and continue.

You don't say what browser you're using?
In internet explorer or firefox, hold ctrl key and press + for bigger and - for smaller.

ACER laptop keyboard skips when typing on Internet email (Hotmail or Yahoo), seems to be fine on Word?

Your browser is lagging behind. You may be low on RAM. This happens often when you have multiple tabs/windows open. Some browsers require more resources than others, I'm not sure how they compare.

It could also be low bandwidth; either you have a poor connection or are downloading a lot (via frostwire or utorrent or something) or uploading.

If you're running 768+ MB of RAM on Windows XP, you're fine. That's unlikely to be the cause.

If you're running 1.5+ GB of RAM on Windows Vista/7, you're fine.

Due to how IRQs are processed, the fact that it works fine in word but not via the internet suggests your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc) is the problem. Try installing the latest version of whatever browser you use. If this doesn't work, try installing an older version. lol.

I mistakenly reprogrammed my gateway keyboard

If you are on Vista (Maybe XP has it too), go to the Classic View in the Control panel/Default Programs. At the bottom click on "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults" From there, follow your nose back to the one you want--down carrets open some choices. My KB-0532 was set to "custom" and then it let me chose my browser, mail program, etc.

Wireless connection to Internet


You could try going to the tools menu in IE 7 and turn of Phishing filter. That should speed up page loads.

Otherwise, there are other browsers that are not so clumsy. Let me know if this solves your problem or not. We are here to help.
