I know almost all of hte key commands. But not sure how they will translate as i dont have the keyboard in front of me.

There needs to be the key that brings up the context menu, AKA Right click.

 


That key is mandatory to even attempt this. Is it present? If not then it cant be done no matter what.

Thanks Mak, Yeah, Or you can use ctrl+alt+delete and use file/run new task. The Windows key is there. But she can just right click the mouse pad once since its already on the desktop. I actually tried to get her to do it once because I know the commands, but not for THIS Particular Com (I was just kinda hoping that her windows xp was setup something like mine.....Nice wish). But It was actually working at first. I just got her to right click the mouse pad once to bring up the menu. I know she doesnt have anything installed that would add itself to the pop-up menu (WinRAR, CCleaner, etc.) But alas, after a few movements, the beeps started in and I knew we were somewhere we shouldnt be.
So I need someone who actually has that same "series" of computer. and knows how to use key commands to get where they need to go (everything after the initial first right click on the desktop to get to the properties menu)

Thanks again, Mak

Well I do not own system as that, but this is the closest steps I could possibly find using the Intel GMA.
Graphics — How to open the Intelģ Graphics Properties window

If you know yourself around the system with a keyboard, shouldn't be that hard. Hope that helps .

Edit: Re-added back to sig to see if I can help with information gathering.

fn + F6. F6 should have the external monitor icon on it. It make take several tries, tapping it once or twice at a time until you hit the right option.

Just wondering since y'all seem to know these hotkeys like the back of y'all minds lol, brands of PC/Laptop/etc always have the same hotkeys? No matter if it's a different version/model of product?

I believe all the general keys (Tab, Arrows, Page up/dn, etc) are the same. Some systems that come with keyboards may have extra functions. The menus are mainly the problems. It would be faster to get around if you could use the functions like writing a sentence, but when you add programs, things change.
