Ive lost my hotkeys on my keyboard


Sounds like your keyboard driver has either stopped working or has been removed. Keyboards will function as normal without specific drivers but hotkeys etc. wont work. Look at the manufactures web site for keyboard drivers, usually they are pretty good at providing the downloads. without them installed correctly hotkeys will not work. Once installed run the software and check the keys assignments.

Re Keyboard 57KBOBL: Explaoin symbols above the F keysOne is a compuer--another a half-moon (sleep button), but then there's a *=star and a check box and a house and music notes etc.


These Keys are multimedia and internet hotkeys. The House would take you to your home page in your default web browser, the half moon is a sleep button, the music notes will open up (by default) your My Music folder.

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.....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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

I cant write in my keyboard dell inspiron


If you are not able to use the integrated keyboard, you can try an external USB keyboard. If it doesnot work, then you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To use the onscreen keyboard, go to start > programs>accessories>accessibility> on-screen keyboard . Open a notepad and then try to type using the onscreen keyboard. If it works, then you need to replace the keyboard.
