This may be an odd question, I apologize.

I just got the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and was curious about how the zoom feature was to work. I'm using Windows 7 and in Word, Internet Explorer, or when viewing an image the zoom doesn't seem to do anything.

Device Manager says that the drivers are updated. Is there a special key combination that is used to make it work? I am not sure what I'm missing with this.

F Lock Key disables Zoom Slider as well the above mentioned software. The newest version is in the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center software download at support page for keyboard.
