When you try to use the Zoom slider key on one of the Microsoft keyboards that are listed in the "Applies To" section, the Zoom slider key may not work correctly.

Note All Microsoft keyboards use the Microsoft IntelliType Pro software.


This problem may occur if the speed in the IntelliType Pro software for the Zoom slider key is not set to Fast.


To resolve this problem, increase the speed for the Zoom slider key in the IntelliType software. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type control in the Open box, and then click Keyboard.
  2. On the Keyboard properties page, click Zooming.
  3. Use the pointing device to click, hold, and then move the Select a zooming speed slider control to Fast.

    Note Click to select the following check boxes if they are not already selected:
    • Enable zooming
    • Enable accelerated zooming (zoom faster the longer you hold the zoom slider)
