Shortcuts have locked up on my pc


Conflicting Extensions


Add-ons, also called plug-ins or extensions, are mini-applications that attach themselves to independent software and add extra capabilities to the program.


Extensions can change a browser's interface, alter the behavior of existing operations, add new functions or install in-browser support for programs like Shockwave Flash or Adobe Reader.


Because these extensions make changes to the overall operation of a browser, they can also affect the shortcut keys.


Most browsers offer an option to run the application with add-ons disabled; if the shortcut keys work when extensions are turned off, one of the add-ons is at fault.


Key Reassignments


Programs like MapKeyboard, SharpKeys and KeyTweak can reassign the functions of each key on the laptop keyboard.


If the computer is running a non standard keyboard layout, certain keys might not behave or respond normally.


For example, if the "Ctrl" key has been disabled or is set to work like "Shift," shortcut keys won't work as expected because the keyboard is no longer using its default mapping.


If the keyboard layout has been changed in the Dell laptop, the registry will contain a Scancode Map entry in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or the language bar will show a keyboard language different from the default ("English (United States)," or "EN," for Dell laptops purchased in the U.S.).

Virus Infection


Malicious software can affect the function of peripheral components like the keyboard and mouse.


If the keyboard is exhibiting strange behavior for example, if certain keys do not respond or if keys output unexpected letters a virus is most likely the cause.


Running an anti malware software from within Safe Mode accessed by pressing "F8" on the Dell logo screen should remove any viruses interfering with keyboard response.


Browser Software


Upgrading or downgrading a browser on the PC can affect the Internet shortcut keys associated with that program, especially if the version removes a function that was once associated with a particular keyboard combination.


Alternatively, if you've switched to another browser, you might find that certain shortcuts that worked in the previous browser don't work in the new one.


For example, while "Shift-F10" opens a context menu in Internet Explorer, the same keyboard combination does nothing in Mozilla Firefox.


Hope this helps.

I want to change what a key types e.g. the numeral 2 key has the @ sign but you need to use the ctrl key to get it. I want to use the shift key to get it.


Create a shortcut

Open the folder or directory that contains the program you wish to create a shortcut for.

Right-click on the program and click Create Shortcut.


This will create a shortcut named "Shortcut to <your program> in the directory you are in. If you wish to rename this shortcut, right-click the file and click rename.


Once the above steps have been completed, you can copy or cut this shortcut and paste it anywhere to execute this program.


Assign shortcut key to that Windows shortcut


Once the shortcut has been created to assign a shortcut key to that Windows shortcut follow the below steps.


Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.

Click the Shortcut tab.


Click in the Shortcut key box and press a letter. For example, if you press "p" the shortcut key will automatically be made Ctrl + Alt + P. Which means if saved when pressing Ctrland Alt and "P" all at the same time will run that shortcut.

MapKeyboard enables you to remap your keyboard and alter any key to function as a different one or optionally disable it as well.


The program can be quite useful for laptop users and people with keyboards that differ from the standard

Is there a way to assign short strings of text to keyboard commands? (ex. assign "Your Address" to "command + a" )


Absolutely, there's a little trick on how to do that. For example, if you want to open www.youtube.com using Firefox and open it by just pressing a command on your keyboard.

Here's how:
1. Locate the Firefox.exe on your program files folder then create a shorcut by sending it to desktop.
2. Right Click on the shortcut and select properties then choose Shortcut Tab. Take a look of the picture.

3. At the target box, Type in the address you want to open at the end of the location of the file.
4. The Shortcut Key, Assign now a command like Ctrl+Alt+A...
5. Click Apply and OK!

That's it! Enjoy!

Arrow key problem


I think you are using multimedia enabled keyboard. So check it properly, there must be some software utility installed on your system for this keyboard, use that, as it seems that the keys are fixed as shortcuts for those programs. So remove those.

How do I shift to the blue key functions on the keyboard


I've run into this a lot myself and personally find it annoying more than useful. While typing, your punctuation keys suddenly switch to their french functions. By defaul, Vista assigns a keyboard shortcut fo changing input languages.

This shortcut is ctrl+shift - a very easy combination to press by mistake. To solve this problem, just press crtl+shift until you're back to english. You can change this shortcut or disable it all together.

Open the control panel then click "change keyboards or other input methods" under "clock, language and region". In the window that pops up, click "change keyboards..." then select the "advanced key settings" tab. This is where you can edit and disable language related shortcuts. To change one, click on the profile and then click "change key sequence". Under "switch keyboard layout", select "unassigned" to disable that shortcut.

From the description of your problem it seems that your Windows-Key is stuck. Win+D minimizes all windows, Win+R opens the RUN command.

It is a known bug in Windows (often with the Ctrl or Shift key), but Microsoft has not released a solution. If it happens again, try this as a work-around:
  1. Open your 'On-Screen' keyboard, which you can find in Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Accessibility.
  2. Press the 'on screen' Windows key.
If that happens a lot, then go again to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories, Right-Click "Accessories" and choose "Open". While holding down the Ctrl-key, drag the On-Screen icon on your desktop. (Holding the Ctrl-key creates a copy without removing the original file). Now you have a shortcut on the desktop, which is easier to click than going through the menus.

And don't forget - there is always the option that there is something stuck underneath the key itself (dust or dirt usually). If your keyboard is exposed to that kind of things, you might want to pry that key off (carefully!!!) and clean your keyboard.

Wireless 1000 keyboard not supporting standard Windows F-keys


I had the same problem. I just could not get the "Alt-F4" function to work in a macro.

In the Macro Editor, in the lower center, you will see the "Z" actions. I realized I wanted the "Press and hold Z" function.

To get this, use "Inserting Special..." function to insert the Alt key stroke in the macro.

Then highlight the Alt in the Editor. Right Click and select "Split."

This will put the "Press and hold Z key" and "Release Z key" icons in the Editor.

What you want is the "Press and hold" function. Delete any other references the the Alt key.

Then enter the F4 key, and there you have it.

Hope this all makes sense to you.

My screen has turned 90 degrees to the right and i cant fix it... i used the keyboard and must have pressed a couple of buttons together but now its gone stupid please can you tell me what buttons to press...


Usually, if you have an Intel graphics card (Most of these come onboard a Motherboard) then you have pressed Ctrl-Alt Left or Ctrl-Alt-Right. Try Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Up or Ctrl-Alt-Down. This should put your screen back to the right rotation.

To disable this, there should be a blue monitor icon in the bottom right hand status bar. You can disable the keyboard shortcuts by right clicking on that icon and selecting disable shortcuts (or something like that)
