Re: Puzzling lack of F8

F-keys are where, left or top or both?

F8 used to work, and now it doesn't -- right?  If it's an F-keys on the left
keyboard, does the alternate [S]F8 key work, the one located above the
!@#$%^&*() keys?  Bet it does (unless you've reprogrammed it).

Hit F8 repeatedly.  Does it work once in a while?  If so, it's either dirty or
you may need to play with the latency of the repeat action (MODE CON
RATE/DELAY) -- the keyboard may be putting out F8 too slowly for the system. 
Try moving the "Idle sensitivity" slider in Properties ==> Misc to the left,
and relaunch Xy.  Try slowing the whole computer down by running 20 iterations
of Internet Explorer or some other memory hog.  Try reprogramming your keyboard.
