You can set the Function Keys to say what the top row of keys is (that is, switch what Fn does for the top row of keys) in the BIOS, but you cannot (in any laptop I have seen) switch in BIOS what (say) F1 and F2 do (that is, you cannot switch them). Almost all laptops however can control Sound and Brightness with some Function key arrangement. You need to ...

To move through the formula using the keyboard, select anywhere in the formula and hit the F2 key. This is the same functionality as when editing a formula in a cell.

Here's how I'd do it: I'd create a standard Windows shortcut file in my Start Menu that points to the Word 'Normal' template*, and assign the desired Shortcut key to it. This will result in the user having to press just one key combination (as requested by the OP.) Here's a step-by-step: Open File Explorer and find the folder that contains your Normal ...

For Android users, the most obvious solution is to click + for a new tab, then click the RHS dropdown menu, chooseRecent tabs, and click the Show full history entry. The link to the target tab will be located close to the top of the list if the original tab was loaded recently. Select it to "duplicate" the tab. Edit: Chrome key shortcuts are not a ...

This question is open for many opinions and different answers, so here goes my 2 cents. Since you cannot have access to your local network from your work computer you need to have a hardware based solution: Buy a new Logi Keyboard/Mouse combo with switch buttons: IMO this is your best option. Personally I have a MK850 Keyboard and Mouse Combo (K850 keyboard +...

I had this problem too, but it wasn't a stuck scroll lock key. I use an Apple USB keyboard with my PC. And for some odd reason, even though I am able to see the actual Shift+End key input is working when using a keyboard input profiler, it fails to function for the purpose of selecting text from the cursor to the end of a line. I was able to solve the ...

This can be fixed by locking the zoom. The option is available once you left click on the zoom size, as if your trying to adjust the size by text. With that you can scroll through pages without it restarting the zoom.

These answers didn't work for me because--if I understand correctly--the hotkey had just been dropped on a .lnk that did not get removed on an uninstall. Spy++ crashed when it was invoked. Following the steps on this answer solved it: find the shortcut in question (mine was hiding in the start menu, without showing up under windows start button for whatever ...

I have an ugly but effective solution. I use the "typewriter" feature of Foxit reader frequently when annotating PDFs. The workaround for me was simply to write a tiny script that uses xdotool to send key commands which navigate through Foxit Reader's menus e.g. #!/usr/bin/env bash sleep .1 xdotool key alt xdotool key Right xdotool key Right ...

The taskbar only reappears because the Win key shows the Start Menu, but it also incidentally brings up with it the Taskbar in which it's embedded. You could possibly reduce the annoyance by replacing your typing with a faster script that will send the keys Win+digit much faster than you can. A good tool for that is AutoHotkey. But you could also set it to ...

WinKey + Digit is implemented differently than Alt-Tab . Alt-Tab brings a working window up and does not need the taskbar to work in and see the apps. WinKey + Digit uses the taskbar to find the number (0,1,2,3,4..) to bring up. It exposes the taskbar to do this. Whether Alt-Tab or WinKey + Digit, Windows has a working view on the screen of what it happening....

The thing is - the play/pause key isn't F8. It's the play/pause key. If you go to System Prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard, you'll see the pref "Use F1, F2, etc keys as standard function keys" This toggles whether pressing the key marked F8 sends actual F8 or Play/Pause. You can swap the behaviour temporarily by holding the Fn key. Regular F-Keys ...

Presumably it's not your keyboard but just a few ideas... If you have Autohotkey installed, have you checked the key log? (that will tell you if those key presses are being detected) Do you have any other uncommon/computer-specific applications running that may be grabbing certain shortcut key combinations? Try exiting everything possible i.e., Shutting ...

As music2myear already pointed out, the meeting host can disable this function. There is a workaround, but it only works when you are connected via browser: per default the selection and copy of text is disabled in the browser as well if the host has disabled it, but you can use a JavaScript Bookmarklet like this one to allow text selection and copying of ...

It is a specific function of the Zoom client that the Zoom meeting administrator can apply that prevent saving meeting chat, or copying text from the meeting chat. If the meeting administrator has chosen to prevent you from saving or copying the chat, then you cannot (or, at least, should not).
