Re: still having strange problem with notepad shortcut on Dell Lattitude 610 laptop, even after hot key detective has been successfully installed

Tom,

How frustrating! After all that work, it's still not doing the right thing. 
All I can now suggest is that your JAWS configuration has a keystroke 
Alt+Ctrl+N pointing to the My Computer ICON,  and  therefore overriding the 
notepad application.

Are you absolutely sure you're pressing the Alt and Control keys on the 
laptop? For the Dell Latitude, The Alt key to the immediate left of the 
space bar, and  the Ctrl key on the very bottom left corner should work with 
the "N" key.

Subject: still having strange problem with notepad shortcut on Dell 
Lattitude 610 laptop, even after hot key detective has been successfully 
installed


Hello, everyone.

I know I keep promising that I am asking my last question regarding the use
of hot key detective, but my original strange problem with my Dell Lattitude
Laptop, which started this whole discussion, has not gone away.

To review:

I now have hot key detective successfully installed on my laptop, and I can
easily access it via a desk top icon, thanks to the installation
instructions provided by a number of list members.

However, when I do the alt control N shortcut for notepad, I am taken
directly to the "my computer" icon on the desk top.

Interestingly, when I have hot key detective list the shortcuts on the hard
drive of my laptop, it lists alt control N as a short cut for notepad.

Very strange!

Any suggested fixes?

Tom Behler
