Software You can have them install Keyboard LEDs system tray icon, which will display the status of their caps/num/scroll lock keys. Hardware You can shop for another keyboard, or get a dedicated caps lock light (seems like a waste of cabling / desk space to me though, plus it's an additional purchase that might be more expensive than replacing your ...

Assuming that your co-workers are using Windows 7, 8/8.1, or 10, you can enable a notification for when Caps lock (as well as Num and Scroll locks) are pressed. To do this: Open up Control Panel. Go to Ease of Access Center. Make the keyboard easier to use. Check the "Turn on Toggle Keys" check box. Click "Apply", then "OK". After that, they will hear a ...

No. A wireless mouse/keyboard does not use regular WiFi (i.e. 802.11x) and can only bind with the receiver it came with. (An exception may be the Logitech Unifying receiver, which allows connecting every Logitech device that supports it, to a single receiver - but still, it will take one USB port.) If you do not want to use a receiver, consider using a ...

I had a similar issue with the Logitech M560 mouse on my MacBook Air. I LOVE this mouse! It has 5 buttons plus a tilt wheel, real rubber grips (not that spray-on stuff that gets gummy after a year), 1 year battery life and best of all... weighs a mere 92 grams with a Lithium cell!!! So awesome. But it's not Mac-Compatible at all and none of the third party ...

Given the new details, this looks to be a case of USB 3 interference in the 2.4 GHz band. From Intel's note on USB 3.0 Radio Frequency Interference on 2.4 GHz Devices (page links to the full PDF download): The purpose of this document is to create an awareness of radio frequency interference to wireless devices operating in the 2.4 GHz ISM band as a ...

Add your own CapsLock indicator. Install AutoHotkey, it's a general keyboard automation program, could be greatly useful for automatically expanding short forms of words, adding keyboard shortcuts to programs, etc. Then edit the config and add something like : $CapsLock:: SoundBeep, 440,500 SoundBeep, 440,500 SoundBeep, 440,500 SoundBeep, ...

Yes and no. Yes, this is possible. No, it doesn’t work with WiFi (802.11). Instead, this can be accomplished with Bluetooth, another wireless technology built into most modern notebooks. If yours is equipped with it, you can use Bluetooth mice and keyboards. There’s plenty available.

I have found this nice program : X-Mouse Button Control It is a third party mouse macro program that allows custom button settings on any mouse to assign new functionality to any button.

The issue is with the docking station. USB wireless receivers do not work well on them. The problem resides within the USB 3.0 hardware causing interruption of the usb wireless signal. An extension cable may work. It will get the wireless receiver further from the USB 3.0 signals. If this does not work then you must plug the receiver directly into the ...

Keyboard 800.. You cannot. The set is frequency matched at factory. There are no replacements, nor adjustments or matching procedures.

Actually, HP makes a Wi-Fi mouse. I have one, and it works most of the time. It is called the "Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse". As others have mentioned, Bluetooth is a better way to go.

Here's an option that's not perfect, but it helps. It was originally provided by the user Nextron at https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/13531-adjusting-mouse-sensitivity-via-hotkey/. This script gives you leeway to modify X and Y sensitivity independently on Windows, and it works with all mouses and all versions of windows. It's not perfect in that you ...

You could disable Caps Lock, or convert it to be a shift key using a registry entry. KeyTweak will do it with a GUI, but its help file details the registry key you'd need to edit, which could make roll out faster.

I had this problem. My PC is in the office at the opposite end of the house, but sometimes I want to view the PC in the living room. The fix I found for this was to use WifiMouseHD app on the iPad to act as a keyboard and mouse over WiFi and buy a Miracast Dongle to copy the screen over WiFi. Not sure if this will fix your problem. app can be free, but I ...

I have the M310 and have been dealing with the same issue. Some people have had success by cleaning the lens with compressed air. For me, though, it was actually my mouse pad... Turn your pad 90 degrees and see if there's any effect.

Your "common 2.4GHz wireless mouse" is not Bluetooth. Bluetooth may run on the same frequency, but it's completely different protocols.

This occasionally happens to me as well. I've figured out the cause (in my case), that is my mouse sometimes register a single right click as double right click. The explanation is that right clicking on a web page opens a context menu: If the mouse register right button pressed down as single right click, then it will open the context menu. If you happen ...

Go into Device Manager (use Search to find it) Find your mouse under "Mice and other pointing devices" Right-click it and choose Properties Go to the Power Management tab Untick the "Allow this device to wake the computer" checkbox. Click OK.

I solved this, to some extent, with AutoHotkey and figuring out what causes the de-pairing. This solution requires some seconds for re-pairing each time, but is fast enough to be a useful method. The AutoHotkey code: F2:: Run, C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logishrd\Unifying\DJCUHost.exe ; this is the Unifying connection program WinWaitActive ahk_exe ...

Wireless mice/keyboards transmit data by design, so your question is hard to follow. Could a device like this send data other than what it was initially designed and intended to send? Absolutely. Could an infected computer connected to one of these devices do this? Absolutely. People are frequently changing the purpose of these peripherals, many for hobby.

USB 3.0 has been interfering. I disconnected the mass storage device adapter connected to the USB 3.0 back plane and now I have no problems with my wireless keyboard and mouse.

It's possible even in case of no Reconnect button. Link below describes the process. In brief, just plug receiver in, put the mouse near the receiver, switch the mouse on and press any button. It will reconnect in 15 seconds. http://www.tecknetonline.com/download/User_Manual/M002_User_Manual.pdf

Do you see this similar behavior in the icognito mode too? If not then try removing or disabling the extensions like "AdBlock". Some users have reported this issue on "AdBlock" support page too.

You can use MagicPrefs to disable it. After installing it, you can open its Preference Pane in System Preferences and click "Configure Scrolling". Note that to completely disable horizontal scrolling, you also need to disable diagonal scrolling. You can choose to disable it for one or two or three finger scrolling.

If your Internet connection is via WiFi, then interference is certainly possible. To communicate between your devices, Bluetooth sends signals over a 2.4GHz radio frequency. This becomes problematic when other nearby devices are also using that frequency. Wi-Fi is perhaps the biggest and most problematic example, as are other Bluetooth receivers and devices,...
