The shortcut key to highlight delete fails. What should do?

I used to be able to use the SHIFT key, more among the arrow keys for h.ighlight text before deleting. This unresponsive.
If I use the scroll bar ke.ypad more by sweeping on the keyboard (I use a .laptop like your desktop) will remove, but I find myself with a full stop
where the original error was. (See the word "keyboard" in this by to see what I mean).
I do a lot of creation/editing of text and I really need my highlifht/remove block.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.

  • Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
  • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe

  • What background process or service using the shortcut key?


    I changed a few settings in "msconfig" and now my "Toshiba hotkeys" no longer work. I tried to activate several processes and services, but I can't seem to find the right... Someone can tell me what process or service is it?



    Look for something like 000stthk.exe
    But you can set the options in the general tab to load all services
    In this case the shortcut key should work again

  • What is the shortcut key for the underlining of words or phrases?

    I've done this before but forgot shortcut keys for the words highlighted as you type them when necessary. Assume that if you have a title and then you just press the shortcut keys and the title is underlined while typing and then you simply reverse the same to continue without pointing out the remaining sentence. 

    underscore words or phrases

    If you want to emphasize a word or phrase, you can select the word or expression then CTLR + U for underling.

  • Change the function of the shortcut key of media on the laptop itself player

    Hey everybody,

    I was wondering if anyone knew a way to change what is the shortcut key to player of media on the laptop itself? I have the power button / stop, Internet, Media Player, Play/Pause, Stop, Rewind and fast forward, but the Media Player shortcut key is pretty useless to me and I would like to change its function, to open Outlook instead, but nobody knows if it's even possible?

    I'm almost certain that there is a way, but I can't seem to find, if someone can help me, then I would be really happy,

    See you soon.


    I remember that it was possible to attribute the different functions of the control buttons on several units.
    I put t know which unit you use, but you should check the application of Toshiba control buttons that could be installed on your laptop.
    You should find it in the control panel

    This application could allow lets you configure the control buttons.
    But if this software does not have this option, you will not be able to change the features

  • Execution of the script using the shortcut key will launch the ExtendScipt Toolkit.

    Run the script by using the shortcut key assign will launch the ExtendScipt Toolkit in a machine.

    Maybe not the Script because it works normally if a double-click is used to run instead.

    Another idea?

    What shortcuts are you trying to use? If they include the shift or Alt/Option keys, then ESTK is raised to the top because it is this that these keys if you hold either button down on launching a script.

  • Why can I not use the tab key to highlight the links on a Web page?

    In previous versions of FF and in other browsers, I use the tab key to navigate through all the links on a Web page - I can't do this with FF5, the tab key will highlight only the address bar, search bar, and any form of fields on a Web page.

    Using the button tab to navigate through the links on a page is an accessibility feature, and I use it often to display links to jump hidden at the top of a Web page for users who prefer the keyboard on a mouse and assistive technologies.

    Is this something that can be turned on in the preferences? Or is there a reason why it has been removed from this version?

    It can be fixed in Mac OS X Tiger preferences (keyboard-> "all controls") or try a ctr - F7

  • HP15 ac179tx: none of the shortcut keys work

  • Update the BIOS of the consequences on the shortcut keys?


    I sent my computer to Lenovo for repair, and he said on the form that the BIOS has also been updated. Now, I find that the shortcut keys do not work, so I can't change the volume/brightness etc by using the function keys. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thank you



    Do you need to make updates at all, or did the reboot take care of things? (It's funny how sometimes a reboot will be just clarifying). I guess that your SEO in UEFI with the correct prompt by default/Legacy? You will need to enter in the BIOS for these amendments, which may be different from your previous version of BIOS and the current.

    Whatever it is, it is great to hear that you have things facing up and running again. Thanks for being a part of the FRG of Lenovo community!

  • my windows vista starts normally until I have pass the user coice screene. After that, I see the cursor but everything is black. What should I do? Thank you very much!

    my windows vista starts normally until I have pass the user coice screene. After that, I see the cursor but everything is black. What should I do?

    It was probably caused by the removal of any file system as I was scaning the pc for malware and probably deleted some important file. only safe mode works now
    and I need my computer quite urgent for the University.
    Thank you very much!


    No saving necessary data and re-installing Windows Vista might be the best option, but here
    are a few others.

    You can save your files by putting the drive in another computer as a 2nd disk (best) or external
    Drive USB enclosure and then backup to removable media such as CD, DVD or other USB drives.
    Of course a real store of the computer or the manufacturer of your system can help to recover the files.

    Or you can use a boot Ubuntu CD to back up data.

    Use Ubuntu Live CD to backup files from your Windows computer dead


    You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If yes you can try Control Panel - device
    Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click on UPDATE driver - then right click
    on devices and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

    A method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure) is CTRL +.
    ALT + DELETE - Manager tasks and tab process EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - and then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is available by
    repeatedly tapping F8 as you start. CTRL + SHIFT + ESC also begins the Task Manager.

    First check this thread in case it is simple and if not to come back to this thread.

    Black screen problems are extremely difficult to repair and all patch is usually on a base hit or miss.
    That there is no information on a black screen as it is on a blue screen just adds to the
    Difficulty. Often using a restore point or Startup Repair will have no effect. You can try a
    Google to see the proposed repairs, whom some have worked however these cover a wide
    field efforts.

    Here's a video of one of them.

    You have a Vista disk? You can try restoring the system to it. If you don't have the disks your

    If necessary and you can access all ordinary Windows.

    You can try an In-Place Upgrade (hopefully save programs and data) or a repair installation
    (if all goes well, the data records and need to reinstall programs). Be sure to do a good backup or three.

    You can use another DVD that aren't copy protected but you you need to own
    Product key.

    On-site upgrade

    If nothing works, you can make a repair facility that must save the data but you will need to
