X230 keyboard settings problem - entering keyboard shortcuts

2016-01-08, 12:13 PM

Hi, I inadvertently pressed something on my ThinkPad keyboard and it's now not typing what I expect to see.

 

The language is set in the control panel to English UK and this hasn't been affected.

 

However most of the letter keys are now acting as keyboard shortcuts.

 

In Word 2010 this is what happens:

 

4 = €

e = €

r = registered symbol

t = trademark symbol

y = puts cursor to beginning of line

i = opens File menu

o = puts document in outline view

a = à

s = triggers split screen

d = enters a bookmark

f = enters a footnote

l = starts a numbered list

c = copyright symbol

v = opens paste special dialog box

 

I've obviously trigger some keyboard shortcut to change the settings but have no idea how. Need to reset this asap as it's my work laptop - IT team not able to help as I'm not on the company network and can't log on as my password can't be typed in accurately...

 

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure function key is not set as locked, if so find button saying fn lock hold it down and press fn button that should disable function lock and keys with functions shall act as normal letter keys again :)

Got it thanks. I was also advised to give each of the Ctrl Alt and Shift keys a press - looks like one of them had got stuck... Sorted now thank you.
