    Text entry problem


    I have a text entry problem in that I cannot input text from my keyboard or the touchscreen keyboard. They are not unresponsive. If I just push random keys, things happen. There was a similar thread elsewhere, but the solutions involve running things using run or cmd prompts, but I can't input any instructions.


    Also, I don't seem to be able to run the latest Windows update. I have the option to update & restart. I have tried this a couple of times. it doesn't go into an update screen, just closes down and when it's come back, it still wants me to update & restart.


    I have Windows 8.1 on an all-in-one Lenovo desktop.

    :)

  2. E61 text entry/editing

    Does anyone know if there is a keyboard shorcut for moving to the begininning or end of a line of text, or for stepping a word at a time rather than one character?

    The manual mentions that it's table lists "some of the available shortcuts", is there an exhaustive list available?

    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.

    Would like to change the text highlight color in text-entry fields: For instance, if I highlight a word in a text-entry field, it's a very bright blue.
