Keyboard map for Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Pro

There are many keys I've never seen before on this keyboard. I contacted Microsoft and was told they don't have an instruction manual for this product!! (One small issue is that I can't clear a screen in one application I use. On my old keyboard, I could hit the Pause key.) Is there keyboard map somewhere? Or can someone help somehow? (Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Pro keyboard/mouse desktop set - part # wur0385)

Following keys not working on MS wireless 1000 keyboard: speaker + & -, speaker mute, f-lock, calculator, and enter key on numeric pad. Ran ms keyboard diag and these keys are not registering. Keyboard...

Have you downloaded the proper keyboard setup application from Microsoft's site? It is at and you will find the software for their keyboards and mice there.
Look for "Intellitype Pro" with numerics which specify the version and/or date.

You should have gotten this on a CD with the keyboard.

Good Luck,

Can I use a new MS wireless mouse to replace my existing MS wireless mouse. Currently my mouse and keyboard connect together on the same wireless USB device. Could the new mouse be detected and be used...

I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
But Best of luck.

Wireless Multimedia keyboard volume keys won't work.

Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.

Can't install Microsoft Wireless Desktop

you need to resync the mouse and keyboard to the wireless receiver. you hold the button down on the receiver until you see a flashing light and then you press the button on the bottom of the key board. then you do the same thing for the mouse.

Unless you have the patience and know-how to tear it apart and clean it all up I would say you would save a lot of money on aspirin by getting a new one. Almost every one I've seen taken apart for something like this ends up with loose keycovers which sometimes jam against each other and do not allow the key to actually strike the sensor so spell-checker is a constant companion with them.
