Dud Keyboard key workaround-

  jack 10:59 30 Jul 2010

One of my flock has been bleating long on a keyboard with a dud key or two
I made many suggestions from stripping it to simply go buy another- but over the weeks when ever we meet up [in the gym] He will rant on.
Except for this morning.
He was all smiles .
'Cracked it he said'[Thank goodness I thought]
So what had he done?
Stripped and cleaned it?
Purchased another?
None of those [the old skinflint]
He turned on the spell checker
Now he types away and spell checker sorts the missing characters.

I thought I may pass it on- thinking out of the box sometimes pays off.

Hmmm, yep, that's a good workaround ;}

Well now there's a thought ;-}

using the on-screen keyboard?

(Typing OSK from the command prompt probably being the handiest way of accessing it)

Hope this helps :-)
