Alt and numeric keypad RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 7 downloaded from MSDN - trying it out on the bench. The KVM switchbox we have on there has always had a problem - it doesn't pass the "\" key through correctly. Instead, we've got used to holding down the ALT key and pressing 0092 on the numeric keypad. This works at logon to allow me to type company\myaccount but doesn't work in the Search box. Therefore, I'm unable to type \\server004\data2 to get to the network. It works in a CMD shell but not in the search window. Worked okay in Vista.

    What's up?

    Thanks, Rob.
