Re: Unicomp Keyboard with left function keys



John,

It seems that the Windows key as well as ESC and some other keys are located on the topmost upper row and not in their modern location as this is a variant of an IBM minicomputer keyboard. I am not sure if this is the best place for those ergonomically. Is there a complete keyboard diagram? The firm does seem to make customized keyboards. My first thought would be to put ESC and the other essential keys on the first upper row, and maybe exchange Ctrl and CapsLock positions like in Avant. Many things can be done in software, but some not, like the general layout.

Best regards,

Kari,

I made the original recommendation some months back, so if I'll try to
answer this one....  There are two versions of that particular model,
one represented by the diagram you linked to, the other a standard PC
version with working function keys, a Windows key, etc.

Note the model on the right.
