How to print this page

 

Boo Boos made on the keyboard or Be Careful What You Type -
You might get it.

Have you been typing away and all of a sudden something goes screwy? Here's an example:

Open your wordprocessor. Start typing a new document. Accidentally (on purpose) hold the Ctrl key (As if touching the Shift key) and touch the P key. You will get the Print dialog box. That one's pretty obvious. Here's one that is not so obvious:

Touch Alt (as if hitting the space bar) then i and then u. Your screen will go to full screen. If you are not familiar with this action of Word, it could be very confusing.

There are many errors made easily by touching the alternate function keys instead of the normal keys. The Crtl key is close to the Shift key. The Alt key is close to the Shift key on both left and right sides. This makes for easy mistakes.

If you notice all Windows programs have underlined letters in the menus. These are the keys that activate that command. Touching Alt takes you into the menus and any typing after that affects menu items.
