Weird demo problem
« on: January 06, 2009, 01:08:19 PM »
I have a bit of a problem with the BZC demo. I was using Word a moment ago, doing Graphics coursework, and I inserted a page break (ALT+I, B), and the demo launched itself. Did this yesterday too, same reason. Anybody have any idea what's causing this?

If you have a shortcut on your desktop, check if it has a key combination shortcut. If it does, remove it.

Only got three shortcuts on my desktop - My Computer, Recycle Bin, My Documents.

Check your start menu, though I thought only those on your desktop can do this. Arrange the icons on your desktop to ensure one is hiding off screen.

Try changing the combo for the keys on Word if it lets you.

It's the pull-down menu shortcuts, I think they're hardwired.

EDIT: Thanks, Nielk1, it was the shortcut in the start menu. Maybe GBD should consider removing the shortcut commands in future :P
