  2. Select Run.
  3. Type 'OSK' in the dialog box.

  4. Click on OK.
  5. The Microsoft on-screen keyboard will open. Notice that the slk, or scroll lock, key (located in the top row of the on-screen keyboard as shown below) is turned on.

  6. Click on slk (in the top row of the on-screen keyboard). This will toggle the state of the scroll lock key. Notice that the scroll lock key is no longer outlined in red. Scroll lock is Cannot unlock Keyboard Scroll lock - EX110 - 11810.1.0.jpg />

Why did Logitech remove Scroll Lock from some of its newer keyboards?
Historically, Scroll Lock is used much less today than in the past. And if enabled by accident, Scroll Lock can cause issues in certain applications, such as Microsoft Excel.
If a user does not know how to disable Scroll Lock, only rebooting the PC can do so. Based on a recent study, we learned that Scroll Lock is among the top 5 least used keys. Logitech therefore decided to remove Scroll Lock from the following keyboards:

  • Cordless Desktop EX 100
  • Cordless Desktop EX 110
  • Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser.
  • diNovo Media Desktop
  • diNovo Media Desktop Laser
  • diNovo Cordless Desktop for Notebooks
  • Access Keyboard 600 (this is the only corded keyboard without SLK).

All other Logitech keyboards have the SLK key or the SLK key combo of FN + Pause/Break.

Removing Scroll Lock was done to make these keyboards more user-friendly to the majority of users.
However we now realize there are more users in need of Scroll Lock than anticipated. Therefore Logitech has decided to reinstate Scroll Lock (as FN + Pause/Break) on all future keyboards. We are not doing this however to support KVM switch use.

There are two options for those Windows users in need of a Scroll Lock function for the previously listed keyboards.

Option 1. (For Windows XP only, and SetPoint does not have to be installed.)
Go to Start → All Programs → Accessories → Accessibility → On-Screen Keyboard.
Toggle the on-screen keyboard’s “slk” key to switch Scroll Lock On/Off with the mouse left click button. The screen will show Scroll Lock ON or Scroll Lock OFF.

In addition, the On-Screen Keyboard can be assigned to a hotkey in SetPoint. For this SetPoint must be installed.
To assign the On-Screen Keyboard to a hotkey:
  1. Open SetPoint and click on the “My Keyboard” tab.
  2. Select the hotkey you want to assign the On-Screen Keyboard to, such as Home or Search.
  3. Under “Select Task”, select “Launch Program”. The option “Select Program” will appear.
  4. Under “Select Program”, type osk.exe in the Program box.
  5. Click on OK to save and close the SetPoint window.
When you press the hotkey, the On-Screen Keyboard will appear and you may toggle Scroll Lock on and off as previously stated. The screen will show the ON/OFF status.

Option 2. (For all Windows and SetPoint must be installed)
  1. The keyboard needing the scroll lock function must be connected to the PC.
  2. Temporarily connect another keyboard which has a Scroll Lock key. (The temporary keyboard does not have to be recognized by SetPoint).
  3. Open SetPoint and click on the “My Keyboard” tab.
    (If more than one keyboard is listed under My Keyboard, be sure to select the keyboard you wish to assign the Scroll Lock function to.)
  4. Select the hotkey you want to use as Scroll Lock, such as Home or Search.
  5. Under Select Task, select “Keystroke Assignment.”
  6. Click in the “Specify Keystroke box to make sure the cursor is blinking.
  7. Press the Scroll Lock key on the temporary keyboard.
  8. Click OK on the SetPoint window to save the setting and close the window.
  9. Disconnect the temporary keyboard.
When you press the hotkey the screen will show Scroll Lock ON or Scroll Lock OFF.
