Your question is a bit unclear, but..
ctl and alt keys are used together with other keys.
You must press and hold them first, the press another key, then let go of both. In windows, pressing alt should at least activate the menu bar.
Sometimes you may not see the result, even if it works. (For example, ctl-c copies highlighted text, but you won't see the result unless you paste it in an application with ctl-v)
Also, the key combination must have a defined function in the active application.

Check right click button also, if it is not working, it means the bottom row of your key board has fault. Open your keyboard and clean it.

Win shortcuts

Windows key + E = Explorer<br />ALT + Tab = Switch between windows<br />ALT, Space, X = Maximize window<br />CTRL + Shift + Esc = Task Manager<br />Windows key + Break = System properties<br />Windows key + F = Search<br />Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows<br />CTRL + C = copy<br />CTRL + X = cut<br />CTRL + V = paste<br />Also don't forget about the "Right-click" key next to the right Windows key on your keyboard. Using the arrows and that key can get just about anything done once you've opened up any program.

Can't use PrintScreen key on Logitech's "Cordless Internet Pro" keyboard. Key is on upper right of keyboard with "Prt Scr" above "SysRq" on the same key. I've...

It's what you do AFTER PrtScr that matters.
Basically the key takes a snapshot of the screen and stores it on the Clipboard. Next PASTE it into an application like Paint and Print from there. Or paste into a document you are working on that requires a screen clip (after editing it, if needed).

Rate me 4 stars is this helps!

What are the four main keys of the keyboard

There is't really such a thing as four main keys. Ctrl, Alt, Shift and esc/del are used a lot for shortcuts.
Comment back to clarrify what your talking about if this doesn't not answer your question.

Ctrl + Alt + Arrow Key DOWN turns video flipped upside down. I have some edistors that use this shortcut for code replication. So I would like to disabled this "video flip feature" orat least...

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

Can't type anything without weird things happening the \'p\' prints,

hi, check that Sticky-keys arent turned on.

to toggle Sticky-keys on and off, press the shift key 5 times fast, then either Disable the sticky-keys tickbox, or click Settings for more configuration settings.

when sticky-keys are enabled, you can press shift and release, and the shift key is still enabled. this also goes for Alt, and CTRL.

so if it is enabled, pressing P will attempt to be Ctrl-P - which is print.

Desktop is dispalyed horizontal on monitor

The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)
