Re: Trouble With Right Alt+Arrow Keys

You should not be using Windows xp on the internet! Someone could put
a key logger and know everything you type. There are no security
updates for xp and its the wild west out there.

I'm trying that, but it seems to want to make the Control, Shift and Right Alt keys work together as a trio. What's up with that, I wonder?

It didn't come with any software. Just the keyboard. However, I talked to Troy at Unicomp a few minutes ago, and he did tell me about Alt GR, which I'm still a bit confused about. What's Alt GR?

Still the same layout as the Ultra Classic with regard to the keys under discussion. This one is a real throwback design wise (and that's not a criticism). Really tall keys, nice rake, an actual 6-pack above the arrow keys -
quite nice.

It is still very odd that they did not use reflected symmetry for the repeated keys that surround the space bar, but so long as you know where they are, these should work as they do on any other keyboard. That is, unless they
have a custom keyboard driver associated with this model, in which case you'd have to make certain that's been installed.
