Thanks! I had an old laptop with the shift key stuck on -- used keytweak and was able to quickly make that key do something harmless. awesome! save me from getting a new keyboard/laptop.
when the number lock is ON - the alphanumeric keys on the keyboard displays the following:
instead of U = 4 / I = 5 / O =6 / P =* / J = 1 / k = 2 / l = 3 / := - / M=0 / ? = + /
and How to turn off Windows VISTA Accessibility feature before it triggers or after it has been triggered.
your reply will be hightl appreciated.
I appreciate this commit board. My brother-in-law brought me his laptop and it was acting very strange. After some quick checking, it was apparent that the right shift key was alway on, even though it looked fine. It made the laptop nearly unusable since it would open every icon on the desktop when you clicked on just one. You couldn't even edit text without rewriting everything. I installed KeyTweak and in 30 seconds and 1 reboot, I disabled the right shift key and he was back in business. He said he could live without the key and was thankful he didn't have to pay for a new keyboard or a repair shop. Thanks!!!
I have found this forum very helpful. I don't want to use shareware software and would like to remap the regedit to change key assigns.
I found the following link (the Microsoft link above didn't work)
For my work, I constantly need to type the Euro symbol (Alt+0128) and wish I could reassign Shift+6 or F6 button as this key.
What is the code to add to the Scancode map to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance!
Everytime I press the "Y" key it tells me "SAVE AS". How do I get rid of this problem?
My control keys are disabled, at first I thought that it's a dust or spillage problem, but both keys doesn't function at all. Pressing them is useless as the moment, copying a text would simply type over the highlighted text with the character "c" as in the Ctrl + c key stroke.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I have this awful keyboard at work where the 3x2 block with home, end, ins, del, etc., is flipped upwards and is 2x3 with home and end on top and ins/del and pgup/pgdown beside each other. Needless to say this is AWFUL and caused much undue stress.
KeyTweaks worked GREAT; it allowed me to do completely arbitrary changes, which I could not do with SharpKeys.
my laptop's windows key was stuck and i was unable to use it. key tweak helped me out and thanks to you from where i got the link to it.. otherwise i might have to change my keyboard or get it repaired which could cost me a lot.. thanks once again..
