Q: Block Internet Explorer 10 shortcuts: source menu (ctrl+u), view downloads (ctrl+j) and history (ctrl+h)

Hello, we have to harden Internet Explorer to use in the kiosk mode (-k). The user should not be able to do a thing besides using the application which is loaded. We have set all the meaningful Group Policys like "View menu:
Disable Source menu option" and "Turn off Shortcut menu" under "User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Browser menus". I cant find a way to disable ctrl+u, ctrl+j and
ctrl+h.

Yoga 2-11 Yesterday the CTRL-C, CTRL-X, and ALT-CTRL-DEL functions stopped working; strangely CTRL-V works fine. It's very difficult to get the @  and ? symbols to appear, but capital letters using the same Shift key are fine. Also, when I would type, several of the same letter would appear, and when pressing the space bar several spaces would appear. I fixed this issue by adjusting my keyboard settings by setting the repeat rating to the slowest setting. I've used device manager to uninstall the keyboard, also updated drivers, etc, but nothing seems to fix things. Using Windows Key R and OSK to display the onscreen keyboard, and using my physical keyboard for input confirms that the Shift and CTRL keys work. One thing that I noticed: when I touch the CTRL key a round onscreen circle appears and gets smaller and disappears; this is also true for CTRL-X and CTRL-C, but when using CTRL-V the circle does not appear.

Thread title pretty much sums it up: CTRL-A disabled, CTRL Key Works, A Key Works, Other CTRL-combos work. I use CTRL-V, CTRL-C, CTRL-Z, etc all the time.

CTRL-A has never worked for me, in any application. Instead of selecting all, CTRL-A pastes, the same as CTRL-V, only when you use CTRL-A, in addition to pasting, it also makes a system sound, kind of like a knock sound. Out of desperation to identify the sound I looked control panel sounds and listened to all of them, it's not there.

I've never really needed CTRL-A until now because I'm wanting to use a specific application that has no other way to select all except CTRL-A, so I'm now desperate...

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hello. I encountered a weird problem.

I recently bough Acer Aspire 5734Z with Windows 7 Home Edition installed. When I type CTRL + C or CTRL + V my touchpad stops working for a few seconds. Then it get back to normal. And Except this the functions of ctrl + c and ctrl + v works.

This happens all the time, no matter how much I copy, I can copy nothing doing just the combination and my touch pad freezes.

When playing games as GTA Vice City I have problems using WASD movement at the same time as I adjust the screen(camera) with touch pad. Suddenly lot of combinations stop working, and I have to either stop walking around (WASD combinations) and use touchpad to adjust screen, then stop using touchpad and go back to using WASD.

I hope you understand. I am not very good at explaining things. And I really hope to find a solution to this.

When I did first-run of the laptop, the touchpad didnt have scrolling function working. So I went to acer.com, found my computer model, selected Windows 7 Home Edition and installed the newest touchpad driver 64bit. And it worked. Scrolling working. But freezing problems still occurs. And I think it might be some windows 7 anti multitasking function or something.

Hi all!
I need help to use macros properly. It is my first attempt at doing this, and I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

I have found this thread which resembles my problem, but I still do not understand what to do
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/595235-solved-need-help-macro-using.html

Basically, I have 2 Excel spreadsheets open.
One is List A, the other is List B (Master List).

I have worker codes in List A, and have to find them in the B list to assign them a code (1) in column M.

What I did was go in my first spreadsheet, and selected the first worker code. Then, I started recording my Macro from there.
Ctrl+C worker code
Ctrl+Tab to second spreadsheet
Ctrl+F to open find box
Ctrl+V to paste the worker code copied from before
Close the search box
Cursor now over Worker code, Move over to column M by pressing the RIGHT arrow 12 times (from A to M)
Type "1" and then Enter
Ctrl+Tab to come back to first spreadsheet
Down Arrow to move on to next worker code

A:Solved: Macro in Excel help! Using CTRL+V inside a CTRL+F

Macro recorder only record specific actions, not generic actions.
So you can't use it to repeat the steps for other cells.
You have to code it specifically in VBA.

As for your case you can have a lookup formula in column M of the Master list to do the check.

eg in cell M12 of List B, type
=COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)

this goes to your List A first column to count the number of instances the value in cell A12 occurs.
Assuming there is no duplicate, the result is either 1 if found or 0 if not found.

If there are more than one instances in List A, the formula can be adapted to
=(COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)>0)*1

*1 will ensure that the result which is True or False becomes 1 or 0.

Hi... I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 with a tricked out Firefox 3 with a bunch of extensions, and all of a sudden today I started notice that Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F, 2 keyboard shortcuts that I use ALL THE TIME, are no longer working in ANY APPLICATION. The F and Control keys are working fine separately and other common shortcuts such as Ctrl + C, V, A, O, and P are working just fine.

I've tried it in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Paint and Dreamweaver and Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F don't work in either one of those applications. The weird thing is without doing much of anything, it was working at some point today after I had noticed it WASN'T working, but now I rebooted for another reason and those 2 shortcuts are not working again.

By the way, I went into Vista's Ease of Access center (previously called Accessibility I believe), and everything is turned off.

And I also tried the control key to the right of my keyboard. None of it works.

Very annoying... Anyone got any ideas or know of any app that will help me find out what the problem is?

Thank you very much in advance, any help's appreciated

The XPS 15-9530 keyboard requires that you hold the Function key to do home/end (Function+Left is Home and Function+Right is End).  That works fine, but I have found that if Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End are a bit finicky.  Specifically, the key order I have to press to do a Ctrl+Home is Ctrl then Function then Left.  If I do Function then Ctrl then Left, it only sends a Home and not a Ctrl+Home.  Is there any way to work around this?  It's a bit annoying to have my Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End fail so often while I'm retraining myself.

My remote desktop session does not appear to be sending the ctrl+alt+left (CAL) or ctrl+alt+right (CAR) combinations to the target machine.

Yesterday everything worked fine. I installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and could successfully RD to my laptop machine, which is running XP Pro SP2. CAL and CAR worked.

Today I installed SP1 on the Vista machine. Now my RD won't sent CAL or CAR.

I downloaded a simple keyboard tester application and installed it on both machines. Locally on the Vista machine, CAL and CAR are detected. Same thing locally on the XP machine. When I RD from Vista to XP and try the keyboard test the program shoes that it is receiving the CTRL+ALT combination but doesn't register when I hit the left or right arrow key at the same time. Interestingly, the up and down arrows *do* register.

I tried the RD connection from XP to Vista. Everything works normally. I tried an RD connection from another XP SP2 machine to my laptop. It works.

Any ideas? Is there some sort of key binding in Vista that takes the CAL and CAR combinations before RD can get them? Is RD in Vista 64 filtering them out for some reason?

Thanks

Greetings all. How do I add the keyboard shortcut command "ctrl+F" to the Internet Explorer context menu? I know where I need to go in the registry to add an item to the context menu of Internet Explorer, but I don't know how to add a keyboard shortcut.

A:Adding "ctrl+F" command to Internet Explorer context menu

I am not sure I understand. Ctrl+F activates the "Find on this page" search box in Internet Explorer (IE) and funcions when you are working in the IE window, there is no setting up required for this.

A right click on the IE icon for a "Find on this page" in the context menu will not be very useful since IE does not yet know what page you intend to look at. If you just want a search function for IE pages you can use the search box on the taskbar.

I have got shiny new Lenovo T440. It came preinstalled with Win7 Pro x64. There is lot of Lenovo bloatware, hard to say what all that stuff does and what is actually needed. Let me know and I can try to list it here.

Either way pressing these shortcuts does absolutely nothing. Not even slight move in cpu or memory usage.

I have USB keyboard attached, but removing it and using built-in keyboard doesn't change anything.

There are some shortcuts that are working correctly, for example Win+R, Win+E, Win+M, Win+D, Win+Pause. Maybe some more, but these are the ones I use the most. Among those that are not working, there is Ctrl+Shift+Escape (task manager).

To make it even more weird, if I choose "Lock" option from start menu, it does nothing at all too. However using "Switch user" works there and seems it currently only way how to lock workstation. Also I can open Task manager by right clicking on taskbar and choosing it there.

I have checked event log, no warnings or errors there. I am kinda out of options here, never seen something like this. Do you have any idea where could be culprit hidden ?

When I ran GMER an error popped up, It said "C:/Windows/system32/config/system: The system can not find the file specified." Gmer would only scan "Services", "Registry", "Files", and "ADS". All the other options were graded out and could not be selected. When I hit the scan button with those options selected another error popped up: "C:/Windows/system32/config/system: The process could not access the file because it is used by another process." I bypassed the error message and a scan ran but "GMER hasn't found any system modifications."

So, after decades of using Windows I've just discovered the single most destructive command... The CTRL+Z... Yup, that's right.

So here's the problem. I always leave my computer on 24/7, and today I was in a application trying to undo something, but I didn't notice the application was out of focus and I was in fact "undoing" several actions I've made in the last days... Absolute disaster - I accidentally deleted Gigabytes of information and I've no way of getting them back... The worst part is, I don't even know for certain what I've deleted, as I don't exactly recall what I did in the last few days.

My question is, is there a history/log of the undo actions? I've already checked Event Viewer and there is nothing there.

Regards.

Recently i've encountered this problem with CTRL C and V unable to copy or paste anything anywhere. Able to do so with mouse where right click copy paste works for that. CTRL F works which means ctrl button is functional. i've tried restoring to an earlier restore point, ran SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker but no errors. I still can't solve this problem.. I've clicked on all the relevant search results from google but none works for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:ctrl c ctrl v not working.

Do CTRL-C , that should place something in clipboard. Then paste by using mouse right click->paste. Works?

Right click and select copy. Then paste using CTRL-V. Works?

I have an HP envy laptop less than 6months old operating on windows 8 and my Ctrl key doesn't work as it should.I know the Ctrl key itself is not broken as it works when pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete or Ctrl + Left mouse key to open links in new tab and Ctrl + P to print. However the shortcuts as Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V, Ctrl + X don't work at all. This is the case in all programmes including word, Excel and Firefox. Ctrl + Insert and Shift + Insert do work for copy and paste function but frankly they are far less convenient. Any suggestions would be greatly apprectiated as it's very frustrating. Thank you

A:ctrl c and ctrl v not working

Hello jc84ox,

 

You?re not able to use your copy and paste function.

 

Go to device manager and uninstall the keyboard. Restart the computer.

 

Do a hard reset.
Once the computer is off.
Remove the power cable and the battery.
Hold down the power button for 15 sec while booth power sources are removed.

This should reset the hardware in the computer.

 

Turn the computer back on.

 

Open up command prompt and run the following command SFC /scannow.

This will scan the system files and correct any errors that it can.

Here is a link to command prompt.

When you go to open command prompt, right click and run as administrator.

 

If the function was working in the past you might try a system restore.

This will take the system back to when everything was working correctly without affecting your personal files.

 

Windows 8 has a new feature which will uninstall and reinstall windows without affecting your files.

 

Here is a link to both options if you would like to give either of them a try.

 

Clicking the White Kudos star on the left is a way to say Thanks!

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Have a good day.

Hello,

Running a brand new ASUS windows 8 based desktop. CTRL+C and CTRL+V work only partially, when I am using them many times they don't paste or copy (though they do some of the time) but they make my browser open a window or switch tabs or like make the right click menu pop up. It is so bizarre, I don't know if it's a bug or what, has anyone else experienced this? It is very annoying when I am so used to doing it.

A:CTRL+C and CTRL+V Problems

Hello kjelljs,

FYI, I have not experienced that problem. The ctrl +c and ctrl +v work consistently for me. I guess the best thing is to try (at this point) is another keyboard (if you have one available) and if you are currently using a wireless keyboard, maybe try a wired version. Good luck.

After installing office 2007 sp1 on a win7 system some keyboard keys were changed to start google chrome.
After uninstalling google chrome ,windows explorer was started
The keys were Cntrl C , Cntrl Z ...., the "1" and the "3" on the numeric keyboard
After uninstalling office 2007 the problem was solved
Does anyone has an idea why office 2007 caused the problem

A:Ctrl C starts internet chrome or internet explorer

Because, mate, it is office XP. Not office 2010.

Quite emphatically, it was never meant for win7

hello, im sorry if i posted this in the wrong section, but i need some help.

I'm trying to add the shortcut ctrl+n (which duplicates the windows explorer window) to the context menu.
I 've added and removed other things, but they are all .exe files. I cant figure this out cause the shortcut is not .exe. Although i noticed the program can load a .bat file, is there any way to do this?
All i want to be able to do is right click on an explorer window and have " Duplicate window" in the context menu. instead of using ctrl+n on the keyboard.

A:Add ctrl+n to context menu?

Welcome

You may be able to use file menu to accomplish what you need.
Be aware, I am not familiar with its operation or the changes that will be made
