return and enter keys don't work
Thu, 11/23/2006 - 08:41
I am new to macs and somehow my return and enter will not work. They were working fine untill a couple days ago and now nothing. Is there a setting that I may have changed or something? Help!

That's annoying! A few ideas to try:
1) If you have another keyboard, swap them to see if it's something physical about the keyboard itself.
2) Did you install any new software a few days ago? Uninstall it.
3) Does it happen in all applications or just in one/more app/s? Check System Preferences--> Keyboard & Mouse--> Keyboard Shortcuts. Or, if you have QuicKeys or another macro/shortcut utility, turn it off temporarily. If it's just in one app, see if that app has a shortcut preference that got changed.

See if you can borrow a keyboard from a friend. I assume it's a USB keyboard. All USB keyboards for PCs or Macs should work.
If it's not a physical problem with the keyboard, then it's a software issue. If you're under warranty, give the Apple tech support line a call, 800-275-2273.
