If you're want to search for files, open Finder. Anyway after reading this I though maybe it was a Mouse hardware problem. While logged into a windows account, the bluetooth keyboard works wonderfully. Just hope this helps if anybody has the same problem. It doesn't seem to play well with AutoHotkeyU64. Once you download them, browse to the correct folder 32 or 64 bit. The active window seemed to remain active even when clicked.
I've also tried other mice in this computer and it still occurs. It is only the mouse clicking that seems not to be working. I tested my mouse on another computer and lo and behold! The mouse quits working on him and the only thing that works is hitting ctrl-alt-delete and then he can continue working for a few minutes before it happens again. I really love the apple bluetooth keyboard, but I have recently also bought a Logitech K810 which I like just as well, and the K810 is make for Windows, can toggle between 3 devices all using bluetooth, and has backlit keys. Drivers, such as bootcamp or otherwise, will work once the user is logged in.
I have Windows 7 installed in Boot Camp on my 2011 MacBook Pro. Mouse wakes up just fine. I'm able to connect both devices via Bluetooth and I know it's working because I'm able to type in the code to connect the wireless keyboard to the computer , but once connected, the devices blink as if they're not paired, and they don't work. I recently just purchased this mouse I've had it for approx 5 days only to find a few days later without prior issue, a probelm to arise at startup and durring usage of my desktop. This simply brings up a force quit window, which lets you force the apps that you have open to close.
Is there a way I could find a ready made config file somewhere? You can execute all manner of commands this way, and the keyboard shortcuts are all the same: command-s is save, command-c to copy, command-v to paste, etc. You'll almost always find volume and brightness keys, playback controls, the escape key, and a smattering of other quick tools. If using a laptop, disable the onboard nub, buttons and even the trackpad entirely before trying an external mouse. I'm using a MacbookPro with Windows 8 installed with bootcamp Thanks. I love the new , but am too cheap to buy the it usually comes with. Also note that even if you had the tab bar as the active object, flash objects like movies or ads where like a different layer, so to use them you had to go trough the taks manager window.
I tried closing windows processes, but the 2 or 3 I can close with still being able to use the computer seem to have no effect. Now that I've settled on the hardware, there's the software side. Or any other combination of keys. Could any of you kindly post me the script or any tutorials about it? My mouse worked perfectly 2 months ago, soo its not a hardware issue. If you've just switched to Mac, then the layout is going to be a bit different and you'll have to retrain that muscle memory I switch back and forth on a daily basis and now the only thing my muscles remember is how to be puny. Make an app fullscreen To make your window go fullscreen with just your Mac keyboard, press command-control-F.
If you've long been a Windows user, then you're likely very used to the keyboard layout, and your muscle memory is incredibly strong, so that your pinky always lands perfectly on the shift key, and you don't even have to look to hit ctrl-alt-del. Is there a program that I can program the keyboard with and make custom key bindings? I am going to have him test another mouse, but hearing about so many others who are having the same problem makes this seem like random hardware failure and more like a Windows issue. Tried all the combinations without success. Both of those issues happen less than 1% of the time, though. The keyboard driver will enable some of the special function keys iTunes control and, if I recall correctly, the control panel gives a few options including whether the function keys are special or regular by default.
I'm skeptical to believe this is a hardware issue just yet. Right click and Select Create Shortcut - then drag it to the desktop. Haven't thought about switching mices because it also happens on the touchpad of my Acer laptop. I will live without the service pack 2 because I should be upgrading to Windows 7 as soon as it is out. I've had the same problem, but only for a month or two; leading me to believe that it was related to a software update. Sometimes I have to cycle the power on the keyboard. Thanks again for your continued support.
The keyboard can be used with many devices temporarily this is your case , it can only be used with one device as a permanently. I see from this thread that others had this functionality without this utility, but I did not, and i sorely needed it. I only know some very basic script. Then I click cancel and go back to whatever I was doing for anywhere between 5 seconds and 30 minutes when the problem happens again This computer is virus free, and I've seen others have this problem on a fresh install of Windows Vista. Seems to work for serttings: Keyboard Media Keys. Edit: I also just found the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator: -- which looks like it will solve the remaining key remapping problems I have. The problem with the keyboard is what prompted me to reimage, but still not working.
And, keep waiting for help! Special characters This is where the Mac keyboard makes life much easier for you in that you don't have to hit NumLk, hold down Alt, and remember a string of numbers. You can get an umlaut with option-U, ƒ with option-F, © with option-G, and so on. Figures, his laptop also went haywire. Prior to reboot I did a bunch of Windows updates including the latest Intellipoint keyboard software and a failed iTunes 11 update. It may have something to do with your fingerprint scanner.
