The third one is probably Scroll lock. On your keyboard you should see a key labels Scroll Lock or it may be abbreviated. The key may also have the same symbol as the light. You turn Scroll lock on and off the same way as turning Num Lock on and off. Usually involves using the FN key + Scroll Lock.

What is the third light for on the upper right hand side of the keyboard? How do you turn it on and off? What is it used for? I know the first one is the Number Lock, the second is for Caps Lock.


Third light is usually the "scroll lock" indicator.
-Activation Button should be on top row, near far right side, on standard keyboard.
Note: Laptop keyboards vary greatly from the standard layout with 'scroll lock' usually activating using an 'alt' or 'brand' (ex. "Apple") key.

There are three lights on the upper right hand side of the keyboard. I know number lock and caps lock, what is the third light and what keys did i hit that made it go on? How do I turn it off?


The third light on your keyboard is normally the scroll lock, the key to enable/disable this function is the Scroll Lock key which is located above the Home key.

On the computer keyboard by nextech is there suppose to be keyboard lights and if so how are they turned on


Hi
The usual lights for a keyoard are the 3 above the number pad. they will be labelled to correspond with the following keys:
- CAPS Lock
- NUMBER Lock
- SCROLL Lock
When they are pressed once the light will go on, meaning that function key is active. So if the CAPS Lock key was pressed and the light is on, then any letter key (A to Z) you press appear as a capital in documents. Press CAPS Lock again and the light goes out and the letter will type lower case.
The NUMBER LOCK is for the keypad to the right (not the number across the top and above the letters). This function ensures the numbers will appear instead of their alternate function, such cursor and Page UP/down, Home, and End.
SCROLL Lock is not used much, but it can be used in Excel to hold the current selection. For example, you want scroll about the sheet using the cursor keys, but want to keep the current cell selected. So with SROLL lock active, when you use the cursor key's, the sheet will move in the direction you want while leaving the selected cell selected. Try it and you'll see what I mean.
I hope this helps.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again
