What I wanna know is how you did those smiley's in the title? That could be helpful in all them extreme political threads!
look the sun is shining ☼☼☼☼ source hold alt and type 1 5 = ☼ on the keypad
not sure how to numlock or source hold alt on basic keyboard on my laptop? Am I getting a bit thick with my small splash of gin in my juice on an empty stomach or something
Use the number pad at right.
While holding down the alt key, press 1. Then let go of the alt key.
no num pad at right stops at the enter button
for starting a new line, nothing beyond
Been de-frosting my freezer (total job for my slight OCD tendencies, nothing more fun then seeing the ice go!) so why it took a while to respond, got the loose ice out of there
I am laptop illiterate. I guess you will have to find a real keyboard...
Unless, of course, there is a laptop alternative method out there…? Anyone?
My laptop has a number pad on it. This post is from my iPhone so no more alt key fun. Off to do so work for the man. Grrrrr TGIF
And it was a warm and sunny day! Total coolness!
Yah and think you may have polished the gin and juice off with out me if then I wouldn't be able to go to work and made a 3 day weekend out of it
The bottle isn't empty yet, I am not that much of a lush!
Only on my second glass and gonna need food very soon but there is still ice to clear out
I wonder if I asked nicely and with a big grin if hubby would be a total sweet hear and make us pizza?
Care for some?
There is possible the option of me copying and pasting from your posts
Grrr. I was typing a reply, and some key I hit by accident erased what I wrote. Starting over again....
Paraphrased from my erased reply:
This thread has explained a problem I've been experiencing lately - why I couldn't get the Alt+ function to work in Word. The reason is because I didn't have NumLock turned on. !
But I tried some symbols both ways in this reply box, and it works both with and without NumLock here. ↓ (without) ↓ (with)
There are also some symbols that are created (in Word) by typing a specific number, then Alt+X. It's really magical to see the number get replaced by a symbol or icon. So cool! That worked for me with or without NumLock, and it even worked with the numbers up above the QWERTY keys. But I couldn't get it to work in this HP forum post box.
I’m guessing that the HP servers are starting to get nervous… ╨╨╨╥╥╥
People just be very careful with those alt + numeric keypad options.
I accidentally turned the screen upside down once. Took me hours to retrace my steps and get it back again!
ROFL!!! You poor thing you, and me laughing
Yeah it was funny afterwards! It wasn't even my computer - it was my dad's and he was none too pleased!
I'm sorry I've forgotten the code now (it was a win xp machine), would have made a good office gag!
Whatever you do folks, don't do <snipped>, <snipped>, or <snipped>.
I'm going to go run some errands now.
And then hide under my desk.
i never knew about this!
thanks, now I'm going to make lots of these! ☺
To Rotate Screen By 90o to the Right, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (→) in Succession & Hold
To Flip Screen Upside Down, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (↓) in Succession & Hold
To Flip Screen 270o, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (←) in Succession & Hold
To Restore Screen Back to Normal, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow Key (↑) in Succession & Hold
Works with vista and XP
There is also an alt + 4 digit number, but am not finding it. Same as I couldn't find it after I'd done it to undo it - at least not for ages - anyway it was hard seeing the writing on the screen when it was upside down!
i have windows 7 and it didn't work but this is fun to learn new things about the computer!
If you guys find a pizza one that would be appropriate cause my sweet fella just made me some <3

Christoph has a problem with his laptop and I'm hoping that somewhere in hubland we have a puter geek with a solution.Chris' cat took a catnap on his laptop keyboard while it was running and now the pointer is stuck and he can't move his mouse. He doesn't have a peripheral mouse and uses the...

What is the difference between a laptop, iPad, Notebook and Tablet or are they all the same?At face value they appear to be the same, just in different packaging.

I am in the process of cleaning up my computer after my son donwloaded - by accident - another unremovable anti spyware program.
