OS X :: The Command, Control, Alt, And Shift Button All Act Like Caps Lock?

Feb 21, 2009

When we upgraded to 10.5 and got the new iMac (I don't know which one caused the problem) I noticed that the Command, control, alt, and shift button all act like caps lock.

I have a MacBook running OSX10.6. Someone else was using it the other day and now whenever I hit my Shift key, it changes the focus to either the task bar or the other open app(s).

Intel Mac :: Get A New Keyboard And Now The Keys In The Upper Row Are Not Working?

May 25, 2012

My keyboard stopped working so I went to the apple store to replace it with another one. Now I am back home and the keys at the very top are not working correctly (volumn  F12 shows the dashboard, F11 takes the screen up and away, F8 pause button shows spaces, etc.). What should I do to correct this problem - I assume I probably need to download some type of softwear but what? I have a Mac OS X  Version 10.5.8 desktop - 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
