Most of the people likes to delete the default keyboard of the operating system and they cannot find it in the control panel. The secrete is to change the "Current language for non-Unicode programs". Check the Administrative tab of the Region in the control panel.

I would try hooking up a USB keyboard to see if you experience the same issue. If the same happens with an external keyboard then you can assume it is a software issue. If the external keyboard works as expected I would assume hardware failure -- most likely a short somewhere in the keyboard. This would make since as you're have keys going out in bulk ...

I used to have a job in the military where typing quickly was imperative (typing things such as "Mig-23" or "Alpha01" (and "Mig-29" better fly off your fingers), so the letters and numbers were mixed together fairly often), so I learned to use the row of numbers across the top of the keyboard. From my experience, I can tell you that there is no way a ...

Over the years, there have been several different 'best' ways to do number input all day long. I think some designs owed as much to making the innards of completely-mechanical machines easier to build, and once a keyboard layout became standardized (and there was a workforce trained on it), it carried over even after electromechanical technology made the ...

So the reason for that happening (the box appearing) is that it's a control character. It's one of the several ASCII non-printable characters. Look into AutoHotKey to override the default behavior of the Control and Delete keys. Have a look at this here

Do you mean keyboard mapping? If so, use your favourite search engine for keyboard mapping. Many of them can be affected by various configuration settings. Alternatvely, only show ( when you press ALT+( (regardless of language chosen) AutoHotKey seems to be a favourite

To faster delete whole words, you can first select them by placing the cursor at the end and pressing Control + Shift + Left Arrow. Then proceed by pressing Backspace or Delete. To map the Alt + Backspace behavior to do this, check the links given as "possible duplicates" to your question.

Open Regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ Find the DWORD key called LowLevelHooksTimeout. Edit the decimal value to 5000. Click OK and close Registry Editor. Next time VMware Workstation starts up it won't ask about the keyboard hook timeout value.

There is a brilliant free open source successor of project fastclicker resides at sourceforge too. It is called "The Windows Intel Fastest Mouse Clicker" (google it).

Ok, here are the dimensions for a T520 Keyboard. I'm looking at the bottom here, with the mouse buttons at the top of this picture (on the other side) and the edge closest to the screen (when installed) is at the bottom. I warned you, it's not a simple rectangle! (This is not drawn to scale.)

If you're using Windows, turn on StickyKeys (Tap Shift 5x). It lets you use Shift, Ctrl and Alt without holding the keys down. This way for example when copying, you just press and release Ctrl followed by c. I found it much more comfortable for my pinky when I did not have to hold these keys down.

There is an application called Karabiner, formerly KeyRemap4MacBook, which allowed you to very easily customize your keyboard shortcuts. Many people used this in order to have Windows-style keyboard shortcuts. OS X can also handle it, as another, less complex option.

For a bit it seemed Fn + Caps Lock enabled it and Ctrl+N disabled it, but now it's consistently Fn + num lk that toggles it. Only that latter part makes sense; i guess my laptop's overheating.

It's fairly easy to disconnect and remove most laptop keyboards. Most manufacturer's have a user service guide available online that shows you how to do so. Disconnect the keyboard's ribbon cable, and power up the notebook. If the issue is still there (it likely is not), then the problem is physical. There is either a foreign object underneath the key, or ...

Sounds like hardware. Every time I've had something like this happen, it's been dirty or malfunctioning hardware. Next time this happens, you can try pressing the "-" key, to see if that gets it unstuck.

I needed the same and I found a solution good enough for me.

I succeded with this advice - it seems that Windows 10 recognize Samsung's built-in keyboard as Lenovo keybaord and then the backlighting starts working only sometimes.

Older Lenovos were built tough and have excellent repair manuals online. I fix my own computers at the component level; if I have a bad card reader, Ill remove it and solder a new one onto the motherboard.

Just power cycle the computer. Windows should reinstall the drivers automatically. If your power button is set to turn of the computer, you should be good to go - unless you have unsaved documents, then it will wait for a response you cant give. However, turning your computer off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds will not cause any damage.

I faced the similar issue after I upgraded to Mac OS X (Yosemite) on my Macbook. I've never used KeyTweak so can't help you with this. But if you want you can use Karabiner to deal with this problem. With Karbiner all you need to do is remap command to option and option to command for ONLY external keyboards and any non apple external device.

It sounds like a driver issue. Sometimes Windows tries to use generic drivers for several things. Most of the time they work. Visit the manufacturer's site and see if they have any Win 10 drivers for your model. If you can look under the Device Manager, you maybe able to see any devices having problems. Look for ? or ! on devices. Please post any ...

In order to get windows to reinstall a driver you usually have to remove and insert the device again but seeing as it's part of the chipset you can't do that... Check if your motherboard has a PS2 port on the back (large green and/or purple circle on the back of the computer). You can then use this to move your mouse and/or keyboard. You could see if you ...

I am going to go by memory over here. From what I can remember, the average USB keyboard should require approximately 120 ma to about 140 ma. This is with the standard 3 LED's (Cap Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock) lit up. These LEDs require very little power since they are only simple indicators. The lit keyboards have various designs depending on the ...

Your keyboard is shorting, most likely because water is acting as a conductor somewhere. Put your laptop out in the sun for a couple/few hours with the lid open (and just forget about it you'll be okay without it) to get the air and heat in to evaporate the water. That should take care of it.

Unicode FF1A: Unicode Character 'FULLWIDTH COLON' (U+FF1A) In Wordpad, press the space bar (or be at the start of a new file), and type: FF1A (Ignore the fact that those letters show up on the screen.)

Shift+F10 is such key. Unfortunately it's poorly supported in many applications (e.g. KDE4 Dolphin does not seem to support it). As a workaround, I use a global binding that translates it into the standard menu key. @kdb has explained how to do that on Windows, so you can use their solution there. On Linux I've got it to work with AutoKey. Simply add this ...
