Make sure the computer is turned off completely. Press and Hold F7. Continue to hold F7 and turn your computer on. Keep holding for about 10 seconds and then release. You will know this was successful when the lights on your keyboard flash for several seconds after releasing.
Now in this example, pressing Alt+1 will type your macro of, “12345”.
1. Press and hold Progrm and tap F11.
2. Press the macro trigger.
3. Exit by repeating step 1.
Now the macro should no longer work.
To disable the “click” noise, press and hold the Progrm key and tap the piples/backslash key (the key directly to the right of the letter “P”).
To disable the “beep” noise, press and hold the Progrm key and tap the hyphen/underscore key (the key directly below Progrm).
Now, in this example, the Right Alt key will function as the Windows/Command key when keypad is ON or OFF.
NOTE: For very old PS/2 Contoured keyboards (Model 130/Essential/Classic & Professionals with serial numbers beginning with "3"), the Windows key is located in the embedded “h” and “n” keys.
Important note: After selecting 36 or 48 macros, program a single simple macro and type rapidly for a while to be sure you don’t type faster than the keyboard can process. Fast typists will often lose keystrokes from certain common words with the 48 macro setting, and very fast typists may even lose keystrokes using the 36 macro setting.
To change the macro memory configuration, perform Program + Ctrl + F2 (for 24 macros) or F3 (for 36 macros) or F4 (for 48 macros). The keyboard lights will flash for several seconds as the memory is erased and reconfigured.
One of these utilities is called “mouse keys” and canbe used to convert your keyboard’s numeric keypad into a pointing device. When MouseKeys is activated, the keypad “5” becomes a left mouse click. Witha programmable keyboard or programmable foot switch, you can re map the keypad5 action to a more convenient location. Refer to your operating system’s documentation orexperiment with other keypad keys to find other useful actions.
After the key caps have been removed, you can soak the keycaps separately in water (a little soap is ok) and let them out to dry.
While the keycaps are drying, you can clean in between the key switches with a can of air and/or Q-Tips with water or rubbing alcohol.
You can also use rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to clean the outer plastic keyboard case.
Just remember to wait for all parts to dry before connecting the keyboard to your computer.
