I guess I'll have to pass on this one as I do not what you are talking about... It looks like something on a UNIX machine or NT server, and not the usual XP sort of thing. Larry

A button on my keyboard does not function/ as it should. Is this understandable?

went to pcanswers and got sorted out. Default was set to US English.

From the UK domain used by pcanswers, I would guess that you must have a UK keyboard? I had a similar problem years ago when I was in Germany. We bought Macs and Lisas locally specifying an English keyboard. Of course, as you would guess, they delivered English English keyboards and we had some problems using them with American English software. For one thing, American keyboards have a $ instead of a pound (currency) symbol. They do have an @ sign, but that doesn't affect common email programs used here in anyway that I know about. Larry
