Logitech Keyboard Stuff

“As a rule, he -or she- who has the most information will have the greatest success in life.”

- Disraeli


This page is for anybody with a Logitech Elite or Navigator keyboard who is fed up with the F-Lock key being the wrong way round and not having the function keys work as expected. It will only work if you're using PS2 rather than USB.

I've written a .reg that works on Windows 2000 and XP which remaps the scan codes returned from the function keys so that they are the other way around. Unfortunately the iTouch software doesn't work with this re-mapping so you will lose the functionality of the additional keys, but some have had success with using MS IntelliType.

I've also fixed some of the media keys, so that they return the usual Windows scan codes for those functions. And I've remapped the scan codes so that the iNav buttons are forward, back and scroll.

If you open the registry file here and reboot it should just work, but not with iTouch. If you want to remove the fix, click here.

DISCLAIMER: If you fry your computer with this I take no responsibility. However, that hasn't happened to anybody yet (well... nobody with a working keyboard who can type an email of abuse :-)
