Is it possible to change settings on the keyboard? I want to be able to push and hold backspace, delete, and arrow keys for continuous action. Now I have to keep clicking to backup, delete, or use arrow keys.

Please elaborate on what you mean... you want to be able to hold down backspace and have it keep going back? It should do that automatically. Please explain a little more what you mean.

I can't get Microsoft Excel 2003 to delete cells


Hello,

Unless the excel spreadsheet is locked for editing then all you should have to do is Left Click on the cell you want to delete and press Backspace or the DEL key on your keyboard.

To delete multiple cells left click and hold in the middle of the first cell and drag your mouse down or across to highlight multiple cells. Then press the Backspace or DEL key on your keyboard.

I need to on code my nokia n97 to be able to reset to factory settings


The following procedure will delete everything you installed and stored in the internal phone memory. The mass storage and external memory card won't be modified.
  1. Turn off the phone.
  2. Slide the keyboard out.
  3. Press and hold Shift, Space, Backspace, & the Power Button at the same time.
  4. Continue to hold the keys. The phone will turn on, and you will see the white background, then the Nokia logo, continue to hold the keys.
  5. Let go of the keys when the screen no longer changes.
  6. Your phone should go to the Setup stage, where will ask you to choose your country.
  7. If you see the country setup, this means the reset was successful. Else you will need to repeat the procedure.

How do you set margins


You move the carrier, with the space bar or backspace key, to where you want the margin to be set.
If the carrier stops before you get to where you want to set the margin, then locate the ALT key at the bottom left on the keyboard, hold it down, then locate the key directly under the words above the keyboard that say M REL (the 3 key) and push it. Then move the carrier with the space bar or backspace key. (whichever direction you want to go)
When the carrier is where you want the margin set, hold down the ALT key and push the key under where it says L MAR (4) to set the left margin, or R MAR (5) to set the right margin.
The ALT key works with all the functions listed above the keyboard.
The CODE key works with the functions/charachters printed on the keys themselves.

What keys do I use the change the left and right margins?


You set the margins by putting the printhead where you want the margin set, and holding down the CODE key, push the key under where L MAR or R MAR is printed, (above the top keys on the keyboard) depending on whether you want to set the right or left margin.
If you want to set the left margin to the left of where it's set, hold down the CODE key and push the key under MAR REL. Then using the Backspace (or spacebar, if you backspace too far) position the printhead where you want the mar. set and holding down the CODE key, hit the key under L MAR.
Setting the right margin works the same way.
