  2. Tab key stopped working

    Hi Don,

    To resolve your issue, follow the steps below:

    • Press and hold Alt-key.
    • Press 0 0 9 on the numeric pad.
    • Release the Alt-key.

    This is the alternate method of getting a TAB character.

    Let us know if you need further assistance and we will be glad to help.

    Using the tab key to hop between text fields highlights all buttons

    Whenever a dialog box pops up in Windows 10, if it contains text input fields and clickable buttons/radio buttons/checkboxes, pressing the tab key steps through every single item in the dialog box, which is very annoying and, to me, pointless. Do I recall that there might be a way to limit this behaviour so the tab key only highlights text input boxes, and not every single element? I can't find anything useful in Windows 10's Settings/Control Panel - am I missing something or is this not possible?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Problem with TAB key

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
