Win + Break displays the local system properties in Windows. In most Bash variants Ctrl+Break is the same as Ctrl+C, raising a SIGINT signal.
Win + Break... ooh i never new that one!
Wow, I stand humbled. Both of the pause|break uses are actually pretty handy at times.
I had no idea you spoke PL/1!
Nope windows key + pause break is very very handy.
I don't think I've ever used Scroll Lock!
I must find a productive use for this neglected key!
Wow... I started this thread in reference to one key.
Now I've found loads of uses for others!
EduGeekers are my friends :D
My keyboards have many keys that I don't use. Firstly there are the windows keys - I don't even use these on my M$ machine. Secondly, the entire numeric keypad - I can key in numbers much faster using the numbers above the letters. Finally caps lock - can't see a need for it.
I do have a keyboard without windows keys and somewhere in the loft I have one without the numeric keypad. Sadly, both are dead otherwise I would use them.
Does anyone use an alternative layout such as Dvorak?
