Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I am typing documents, sometimes some of the keys change what they can type. For example the question mark, slash key beside the period/ greater than sign does not type a question mark. I have been having the problem this evening where the apostrophe and quote key beside the enter key and both square bracket keys beside the P do not type their own characters while I am in a Word 2007 document typing. The apostrophe and quote key types only the apostrophe in boty upper and lower case. I have tried pressing the Windows key, the Ctrl key, the alt key and have finally resorted to entering the symbol by choosing Insert, Symbol and then finding it on the character set. Please help me as I am doing an audio transcription file for work and would like to have it completed by morning. It is now 11:30pm. I have chosen Computer Components as I do not know if it is a keyboard issue or a software MS Word issue. Help. Margaret

How do I get the question mark punctuation to work...


When you were typing something you probably hit the left shift key along with ctrl. Hold down the left shift and ctrl for about 2-4 seconds and you should get your question mark back.


To make it so it never happens again, go to control panel / region and language / keyboards and languages / change keyboards. Remove every language except for English (us) or whatever region you want to use. Before you accept verify that your keyboard is on your preferred language before you do this. check and make sure you are getting the proper slash when you push slash, to change it if you're not getting the slash use the (left ctrl + left shift for 3-4 seconds) if that doesn't work then try alt and left shift.

How do i get the slash and question mark to show when i tipe


maybe the key is broken and not working when you press it. Normally all you have to do is press it to get the slash then press and hold the shift key and press it again to get the question mark.

You can always get it by using the virtual keyboard. Just point and click with your mouse on the key.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to go to the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see a gray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under Find Software type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUAL KEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Also uncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during the download and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not the other junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is you want to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc., then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you were doing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also.

How do I set the 'tab' key on the acer computer keyboard


The tab key is set in your word processing program. For example in MS Word you will see tab marks at the top of the page. You can click and drag these tabs to a different location. If you have already typed up a document, you will need to select the entire document for you changes to your tab stops to take affect thru the entire document.

How do I type question mark and slash on this keyborad


Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.

Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.
