When you open device manager and right click on an entry and click properties on certain items the device usage box is greyed out is this anything to worry about or is there a solution to enable this box. I am running XP home and have downloaded all the latest drivers for the items with the greyed out boxes, but it has made no difference the boxes are still greyed out.
Bearing in mind that you are running XP Home. This could also be a Microsoft marketing strategy to make people use the Professional version for certain features that are only previewed (grey box) in the Home equivalent, dangled in front of your nose, so to speak.....
I would imagine in terms of manufacture; it would be far easier to take code away from 'Professional' to create 'Home'. Than to add more code to 'Home' in order to make 'Professional'.
The device usage box normally gives you the option to enable or disable the item it applies to but on the keyboard you cannot use this option because the slit is greyed out instead of the white slit with the enable or disable options selected from an arrow at the end of the slit
Have just had a look in device manager and you are correct. thanks for the reply at first I thought their was something wrong, instead this is normal so once again thanks and enjoy your christmas. Regards Alan
