I purchased a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 1.0A but there was no instructions on using the various keys. The F2 key also has an Undo arrow printed on top of key. How do I activate the F2 key for use say in Excel?

Hello,
So to clarify your question, the undo button (F2) does not work in applications like excel?
Can you please double check the Model No on the bottom of the keyboard?
Thanks

Here's the software available for your product. Follow the link to download it.

This has not fixed my problem. I do not have a users manual and there has to be a particular key I need to press on the keyboard simultaneously while pressing that F2 key to shift into F2 mode instead of undo mode. The F2 key in Excel allows you to change information in a cell without deleting it but when I press the F2 key now it just undos (deletes) the entry. I am sorry but I have to go to bed. If you come up with my answer e-mail me and I will check it out in the morning.

Hello,
you need the proper drivers installed for all the extra keyboard buttons to work.
There should be an icon in the control panel- to assist you configuring the keyboard extra buttons.
Or possibly in the Programs menu.

However, a simple undo shortcut for excel is CTRL+Z this will undo in steps.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
