    A Nice Little Keyboard


    I looked at a lot of computer manuals and brochures, including old ones from years ago, and made a list of every kind of key I could find that has ever been used on any computer keyboard. And this isn't a list of all functions that can be assigned to keys, mind you, but just a list of actual keys themselves, that I have seen on keyboards. I found over 300 of them. Imagine if one keyboard had all of these keys on it?

    I've never seen such a key. Or was that a joke?

    It asks you to press it when installing Windows, but I've never been able to find it either. Luckily I found the 'Scroll Lock' key works instead.
