Keyboard Help.
« on: August 17, 2013, 01:16:43 PM »
So it looks like my keyboard is messed up. I cleaned it and discovered the space key is broken. I'm using Windows 8; is it possible to hotkey another key on my keyboard do to the spacebar's job? I can't seem to figure out how to do that on here, if it's doable.

Thank you to any reading. ^^

It's a computer application that lets you click on the screen instead of typing on the physical keyboard.

This did the trick until I can buy a replacement key!

Add a Keyboard Layout to Windows 8

That should get you on your way. :-)

Not sure if it would work. But you might be able to use a virtual keyboard. You could left click the virtual space instead of hitting the space bar. Another possible option is to get a portable keypad and plug it into your usb.

I can't actually find in there where it will let me change just the input key for the spacebar.  :-\

Virtual keyboard?  ??? I have no idea what that is.

I can't get a portable keypad, though. I haz no money.  :-(

Until you find a fix, I guess you could copy a single space between words and then press CTRL V every time you want to make a space. That is not really an easy/convenient fix but it will do the job until you find a better solution.

I hope you get it resolved soon!

You're welcome. Thank you for putting up the link Oniya. ;D I hope the virtual works for you Blythe. I use it for my desktop so I can type from bed to the BIG tv.
