I do know the symbol on the bottom right key as being the symbol typically used when proofreading written documents. It is a delete. When you write that over a letter or word in a paper, it indicates that it is unneeded and should be removed. Seeing as how this is an older keyboard, the users of the equipment at the time likely would be very familiar with ...

Apparently the 'bar' shaped return key is a US layout and the reverse L-shaped return key is a UK/ISO layout - When specifically requesting a reverse L-shaped return key, you can probably ask for an ISO layout keyboard. The bar-shaped enter key is an ANSI layout (according to the comment by the OP). In my experience the US layout is much more common on ...

In System Preferences | Keyboard | Modifier Keys you can swap these two keys. Double Command is a PrefPane that offers many options for using Windows-keyboards (see the 3d & 4h checkboxes in the screenshot on that page). I'm not sure it offers advantages over the standard keyboard preferences, but perhaps it includes automatic sensning or a quicker way ...

I use a normal keyboard at work, and have one of these fancy keyboards at home. I can touchtype with the same speed on both of them. When you do switch between different keyboards after extended periods (laptop v/s regular, for example) it does take a little time to get used to they key placement, but within a few minutes of typing, you will get used to it ...

Well for your first question, you can remap it to nothing with xmodmap: xmodmap -e "keycode # = """ where # is the scan code of NumLock. You can find the scan code using xev. Instead of nothing you can remap it to any key you'd like.

You can use Microsoft's Keyboard Layout Creator to modify your layout. Once you've downloaded and installed, do this: Hit "File" and "Load Existing Keyboard". Dead keys are displayed as grey - with a right-click on any key, you can assign or un-assign dead key behavior: When you're done assigning and un-assigning, go to "Project" -> "Properties" and ...

Do the standard over-30-year-old vi shortcuts of ^f (forward == page down) ^b (back == page up) ^ (that's a shift-6 caret for start of line) and $ (end of line) ...not work? Or are you looking for PC-style keyboard keys for those functions? For those, use Fn + arrow keys: Fn + down arrow == page down Fn + up arrow == page up Fn + left arrow == home ...

Open Ukelele and choose File > New From Current Input Source. In new versions of Ukelele, it also assigns a new ID to the keyboard layout automatically. Edit the keyboard layout. Save the keyboard layout to some temporary location like the desktop. (Saving directly to /Library/Keyboard Layouts/ fails silently.) You can use either of the two formats. The ...

It seems that someone having the same problem worked around it using a Windows compiled Autohotkey script. It's a portable application you can bring with you on a thumbdrive, and you should be able to just plug it in and start it up whenever you log on, even with restricted access. However, there isn't a layout for programmer dvorak, so you would have to ...

IBM named this key "alternate graphic" and it's not a substitute for CTRL + ALT, though CTRL + ALT was implemented as a substitute for ALT GR in Windows. It is a key modifier (like CTRL or SHIFT) that enables a different input than is normally expected of a key. Depending on your keyboard and location setup, it can be used to produce characters with ...

It's more of a vestige from the IBM PC Keyboard. Wikipedia has a nice history on it.

Ctrl + a and Ctrl + e for beginning and end respectively. Bonus: Ctrl + w deletes the previous word. EDIT: As far as I can tell, you are using the zsh shell, which by default does not use Emacs key bindings. To get the behaviour you want, do the following during your session: echo "bindkey -e" >> ~/.zshrc && source ~/.zshrc You should be ...

How to remap or disable Caps Lock Key in Windows 7 or Vista. Lucky for you, I ran across this yesterday. From that site, here's the regkey to turn Capslock into a Ctrl key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout] "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,1d,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

From the research I did, I found no way to do this through windows; I think it is hard-coded. However I found an application that provides this behaviour: Keyla. It is even open source, so you can be sure there is no funny business going on.

do you still have the .msi? Perhaps you can run it with msiexec /u? Or re-install it again? Basically, it should be impossible that a .msi does not create an uninstall entry (and will not be rolled back when you try to install any other .msi). If you removed the uninstall entry manually, you can still uninstall it via msiexec /u, but you will need to find ...

Here's what it says on Wikipedia about the scroll lock key: The scroll lock key was meant to lock all scrolling techniques, and is a remnant from the original IBM PC keyboard, though it is not used by most modern-day software. In the original design, scroll lock was intended to modify the behavior of the arrow keys. When the scroll lock ...
