Last week I bought a Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and Mouse and all seemed well at first but I now realise that the F lock key does not appear to have any effect and is not showing up on the screen when activated. This means that many keystrokes are not able to be accessed, such as the ampersand for email addresses and most shifted strokes are not as the character on the key. Any ideas please. Dave
Thanks for the reply Hawy, all the settings in Regional Settings are for English UK. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software but no difference. I have tried it on 2 PCs running XP. I guess it will be going back to the vendor tomorrow. Happy New Year to all. Dave
My slight mistake, on this keyboard all the Function keys have 2 functions and the FLock key should change these. The Caps Lock does very little also. If the 2 key is pressed I get a 2, with the shift it gives a ", 3 gives £ etc. However the 2 key has 2, ", and ampersand on it. The 3 has 3, £ and hash. But no way can I find the ampersand or hash. The ampersand appears on the Ä. Apart from this problem a very good keyboard. Thanks.
