Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147

1 Answer

Using the print screen button

I am trying to use the print screen function on my Dell wireless keyboard. Nothing happens when I hit the key, and I've tried combining it with Alt, Ctrl and Shift, and in every combination, and nothing works. I need to print a list of files from the Explore function, showing the date the files were created. Help!

When you use the Alt Print Screen button then you need to place it onto a word document in order to print it. Open up word and select to paste the frame into your word document and then print it out.

Dell km632 wireless keyboard left alt key not working


Hi,

If the issue is only 1 key,
Please try rebooting system in safemode and check if 'Alt' key works (to figure out if the issue is with OS or Hardware)
You can even try getting into BIOS and check the Key functionality.
Can try to clean or blow the dirt around the Alt Key.
If nothing works need to replace the Keyboard.

Thanks.

Where can I get a print out of the all the functions of each function key?


The function keys change their function depending on the program you are using.
It has nothing to do with the keyboard.

How can I make PrintScreen? It does not functions with the PrintScreen and Ctrl V. What I have to do?


Back in DOS days the Print Screen key was used to copy whatever was on the monitor screen at the time to the printer.
Today, many people just glance at the key (and wonder what it's there for) and some hit the key. When nothing happens they just forget about it.
Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot" key" which, as the term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
Microsoft didn't really highlight the fact that a user, after taking a snapshot of the screen, can easily save and/or print that snapshot using Paint.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. The Click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face.
Now you can use File, "Save As" and save it with a .jpg extension and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.

How do i use the prt scr button


Whatever happened to the Print Screen key??
If you did computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time to your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.
Microsoft has turned the key into into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face!
Now you can use "Save As" and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.
If your keyboard Print Screen key performs more than one function you will have to experiment a little to get it the key to perform the Print Screen Function. Try holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key (or any "special" keys unique to your keyboard) when you hit the Print Screen key in order to get the key to perform its Print Screen function.

My key board with Dell Latitude laptop key board is not working. I purchased MK 250 wireless key board and conneted to TV for display The functional key for selecting the monitor is not there on the new...


The keyboard has a feature (and associated button) called F-Lock. By default, when the computer boots, F-Lock is turned on. In the F-Lock mode, rather than sending the standard key commands for the function keys, the keyboard sends special alternate commands (like print for F7 and save for F8) that are configured in the iTouch program. In order to force the keyboard to send the standard function key commands, you must TURN OFF F-Lock by pressing the F-Lock button! Oh, and by the way, there are no indicator lights on the keyboard, and the F-Lock button is an always up momentary button - just like the keys on the keyboard, so there is no way to tell what state it is in, other than by pressing it and then pressing an F key to see what happens!

This should solve your problem. Just turn off the F-Lock Mode.
Hope this helps if it does please leave a comment or a vote.
Thanks JHH

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

How do i use the F keys


You have to disable Office-Keys function by pressing the Office button (the first button on the upper row (to the left of the "Word" button).
You know that you have succeded when the Office-Keys LED light on the bottom of the keyboard is off.
Good luck!
