    I have previously bought the Microsoft Office Keyboard and for some reason I can't get the print screen working at all; not exactly sure why either. I know there is a F-Lock key. If the F-Lock key is on the the F-keys perform as they did usually. If it is not enabled then there are pre-set shortcut keys.

    Anyone help? :rolleyes:

    To clarify, when you hit the print screen button, and then open 'Paint' or another photo editor and select 'edit' and then 'paste,' there is nothing in the clipboard to paste?

    Yes, thats correct- I'm fairly aquanted with the shortcut keys;

    Ctrl-X (Cut)
    Ctrl-C (Copy)
    Ctrl-V (Paste)

    I had the Internet Keyboard Pro and still do and it worked fine with that keyboard, but not with the Office Keyboard.

    Does this mean you have both plugged in and active on your computer?

    You can display a picture like this:
    [​IMG]
    by using the "IMG" feature above and pasting the URL in the IMG box that comes up... this feature requires the file to be on your ISP or other internet source.

    Or, you can use the "Attach File" feature that will upload the file from your hard drive. Example:

    I can only guess that it takes a different driver. Plug the one that's not working correctly in, go to device manager and uninstall the keyboard, reboot and hopefully XP will install the correct driver for it.

    Keyboard: Drivers

    The new keyboard came with an updated version of the newest drivers for the office keyboard. I installed it directly from the cd- If I un-install it - it's very unlikely it will automatically install a fully integrated driver for the office keyboard.

    That could be what the problem is. The drivers you installed may be causing the problem somehow. Uninstall them and see if XP will pick it up correctly for you. If not, you've eliminated the drivers as suspect.
