I once had a forgotten keyboard tool that was used to alter mapping of command and option keys that was not compatible with a system update and caused a similar problem. USB Overdrive? Keyboard macros? Virtual machine apps? Any similar things could be capturing the USB input from the keyboard and failing to pass to the OS.------Why don't mobile keyboards have a delete button?Why cant we have delete on mobile keyboard ?The keyboard opens only when the user is in any texting/messaging app while there is a need for an input.Delete on keyboard will not make sense because it isn't usable.We have gestures for making deleting easy on a mobile phone anyways.And can you please explain your case of using delete from the keyboard on mobile?------Accept login policy banner without mouseThis appears to have been fixed in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, as the banner can be accepted using . Furthermore, the window appears fully on-screen in my scenario, rendering the need for a keyboard-only approach unnecessary for my use case.So as far as I can tell, it is impossible to accept the policy banner without using the mouse in OS X 10.10 Yosemite, but they've fixed it in OS X 10.11 El Capitan------Windows 7: Create keyboard shortcut that launches repair network connection?Below is a batch script that will emulate the keyboard strokes to manipulate the GUI window titled "Internet Connections" that pops up when msdt.exe /id NetworkDiagnosticsWeb is run. Essentially it will start the msdt.exe /id NetworkDiagnosticsWeb command, ensure the Internet Connections titled window is active, wait 2 seconds, press Tab twice, Enter once, pause 2 seconds, and then press Enter again to ensure it starts troubleshooting immediately------Disable Ctrl-Alt-L's behavior of locking the screenThis worked for me: Unity also has a shortcut that overrides the one in the keyboard configuration, and you can edit it using CompizConfig (you can install it via Ubuntu Software, search for CompizConfig Settings Manager). Remapping wasn't working in all cases for me, but completely disabling the shortcut (uncheck "Enabled") did the trick. CtrlAltL now works well in IntelliJ Idea.------Preferred American English term for the enter/return key in the keyboardThe real question is whether your audience is technically inclined or not. A layperson will almost always know what you mean when you say "Press the Enter key", but "Return" is, for most, an unfamiliar term. It would be appropriate in, say, a textbook, but not necessarily in user directions, unless you were also going to include "Enter" as well, as is the case on Mac keyboards like you have shown.------Program for Ubuntu to detect cat-like typing?None found. A search of the links above, plus a web search, and a visit to shows no Linux equivalent for PawSense, and its web page is very specific that Windows is required to run it.However, you could use Kittydar or similar systems to watch for your cat and turn off the power lead to your keyboard when detected, but more hardware would be required.------How can I disable the voice feature (Ubuntu 12.04)Ok... me again. I did some additional detective work (trial and error, really) - and this is it:You can access the "Screen Reader" feature on the sign-in screen (within the options of the drop-down menu, located in the upper right-hand corner of the screen), and select it (via CtlS) or deselect it, as the case may be.That's all. I don't hear voices any more. :pThanks everyone, anyway.:)------Alsamixer is out to get me?Your hardware has a master mute switch; use amixer set Master toggle.To unmute, run amixer set Master unmute.You should be able to set the Speaker and Headphone controls differently, and to use the Master control to set the overall volume.Your hardware can automatically mute the speakers when headphones are plugged in, but your Auto-Mute Mode control is set to disabled.Apparently, you have some software that does the some.------How can I type ASCII characters like Alt numpad in Windows? duplicateWhen you type Alt numbers in Windows, you are actually typing Alt character's ASCII code.To achieve the same in Ubuntu, you must type Ctrl Shift U, and then type character in Unicode hexadecimal value.If this shurtcut doesn't work check if your input method is iBus.The Unicode four-digit hexadecimal number can be found via the Character Map (gucharmap). For just ASCII table type man ascii on a terminal------How to disable sleep/hibernation key (or entirely) on Kubuntu?I have recently faced the same issue with keyboard. It has 'Power' and 'Sleep' buttons near F12 key, which I use to toggle yakuake.I have disabled these buttons via KDE system settings (in Kubuntu 18.04) in Shortcuts > Global Shortcuts > Power Management. Then just changed Global shortcut for 'Power Off', 'Suspend' and 'Hibernate' actions. I think, the settings path can slightly differ in other version of KDE, or Kubuntu.------Set up password-less SSH tunneling from home computer behind NAT to inside computer behind gatewayYou're looking for something like this, I believe:(Let's call the first server 'gateway1', and the second server 'gitrepo1')Then, with your private key locally on your home computer, you should be able to do the following to get to your git repo server:I'm a little concerned that I'm missing something as I don't see a need for more than one tunnel in this situation------How do I map a key into the shift key in Windows? (see picture of Canadian French keyboard)You might check out the question I asked earlier about key mapping. I put up a tut there for how to assign keys using the registry and another user, Yosh, put a link to some software that will do this for you.I've never tried this on a french keyboard before but if you decide to do it manually, this hex key should map '' to alt1.------Cheats as an answerAs we determined pretty early on, a cheat is a valid answer if and only if the only person you're cheating is yourself.If your question is how to be a better spy in TF2, an answer suggesting you run your own server and noclip through the map so you can easily sneak around and retreat to absolute safety is not for the purposes of our website a "valid" answer------How windows boots up in hibernate mode using keyboard?There is often a setting under Power Management in the BIOS that allows for the PC to wake up via mouse/keyboard activity. This is similar to how Wake-on-LAN works.To answer your question; The BIOS is responsible for bringing the PC out of the hibernation state, not Windows. Once Windows boots, it then goes about doing whatever it needs to do to get back to the pre-hibernation state------How re-map the shortcut key in terminalYou can change the shortcuts by installing Advance keyboard shortcuts tool - gconf-editor (GConf-Editor)You can install this tool by typing the following command : sudo apt-get install gconf-editorNow run gconf-editor you can run is through the terminal by typinggconf-editor &--->Now double click the "apps" folder--->Next double click the "metacity" folder--->Finally click the global_keybindings foldernow you can change the value for next_tab and prev_tab. :)------Windows 10 Enterprise - Keyboard Func KB-460 - Can't use Windows KeyFn F12 activates and deactivates Func mode.Since it seems you may not have the manual for this keyboard, here are some other keybinds you might find useful:Fn F7-F11 will change between Profiles.

I would recommend using a q-tip or cottonball and using it to apply some alcohol to it.Good luck.EDIT: Also, cursory google search indicates a very extensive cleaning guide, probably more than you need. Here it is: ------Install ubuntu on external SSD"Is the idea of installing Ubuntu on a SSD and boot it from any computer impossible?"Long Answer30 years ago you could take any MS-DOS 1.10 bootable Floppy Disc and use it on 99% of the personal computers out there.Today in Linux (and Windows) every boot drive is custom configured with different drivers for:So it is impossible to have a bootable USB external SSD that works on all computers.------Windows 8 Lenovo Laptop pressing random keys at random intervralsAnother option for anyone reading this to consider is machine over heating. I have a dell that gets random key strokes and cursor movement after a few minutes of turning on. When I run a fan towards the intake the problem goes away. I was able to make the issue a lot rarer by lowering the Intel TDP level and increasing the acoustic level in the power options------What is the bilingual Canadian keyboard layout pictured and how do I use it?The multilingual canadian keyboard is named "clavier canadien pour l'anglais et le franais" or "clavier CSA". It's a canadian standard : CAN/CSA Z243.200-92 (fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAN/CSA_Z243.200-92).

You do not need to use it and it is safe to uninstall. I havent used Intellitype in years, so I dont know what it does now. I believe it used to allow to remap those keys to do other things, like launch a program. However, you can do that with other software, like AutoHotKey, which is far more powerful------Why is my keyboard acting like the Ctrl key is pressed when I hit an F key?OK, turns out I just needed to read the manual.The Kinesis Advantage Pro has macros that are accessed via the F keys. I don't know if some came pre-installed on my keyboard, or if I accidentally defined some myself. In any case, the solution was to clear my keyboard's memory by holding down Progrm Shift F10 and waiting for the lights on the board to stop flashing. That did the trick!------How do I simultaneously use two keyboards? duplicateSimply connecting two keyboards should do it. On my notebook, I got a secondary usb keyboard connected - just tried and pressed 'shift' on the built-in keyboard and another literal on the usb keyboard - seems to work exactly as you described.What does not work across keyboards is state changing keys - for example, pressing CapsLock on one keyboard will only affect that keyboard (this might vary by OS tho).
