    Tht there was a picture in the thread.
    DOH
    Well, you'll have to track one down, or i'll try and get a picture.
    Mis-spellings aside, i want one for our users to launch the internal helpdesk.
    Or. . . .even better, just reboot the machine : shutdown -r
    hahaha.

    yes you can. check the link earlier in the thread. they should work on mac if there's a similar keyboard shortcut available. ON the PC it does windows + R. so if there's an equivalent like Command + O or something then it's doable i guess.

    @Witch - mug of what? didn't you see DosBox's post in the thread re Acer Outlet - New edugeek feature. He said he was sorting it. just quote him and remind him.

    Can anyone confirm if it works? is there something you can change?

    Exclamation

    @FN-GM - somebody was trying to modify it at BETT, not sure if anyone succeeded. It would be great to get it to run a script somewhere on the C drive, as then that script could v.easily be modified at will.

    it's because there is a delay in opening the run prompt so the first w get's lost to the ether.

    I get similar effects when i run vbscripts that simulate sending keyboard commands to the console. If any other process takes priority or there is a marginal delay in response then some commands go astray.

    It's a real pain when you are doing something and many screens are open, it's dangerous sending commands to the wrong screen and can lead to strange results!

    You could test it out by having a text document open when you press the button then try and click on the document immediately after pressing it. Or ALT-Tabbing.

    For those interested the spelling mistake is in the "sponsered by" bit

    Who on earth proof-reads this stuff? Russ?
