    Keyboard Lock Shortcut?

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know of a shortcut to lock the keyboard? Something similar to alt+cap+del to soft reset? Thanks all.

    On the pearl, you can press and hold the * key and it'll lock the keyboard. You can also have it set to lock at certain time intervals or upon holstering as well.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Thanks for the quick response, but that doesn't work on my device. I have a 7290 running 4.1 OS. All it does is ask if I want to assign a speed dial to the * key. Anyone else got any ideas?

    Re: Keyboard Lock Shortcut?

    Set the 7290 to lock after 1 minute and it'll lock automatically. 1 minute may seem like a long time but it is quick.

    Also, there's an icon that shows up on the home screen to lock the device by just clicking it and the device will lock.

    You can move that icon to the top of your home screen list and just click that icon.

    I know that the icon showed as a lock on my other BB. I can't remember off the top of my head what it is on the 7290. It has been awhile since I used that device but I do believe that icon is there as well.

    Let me see if I can find it.

    Also, there's a card of short cuts that comes each BB device.

    Re: Keyboard Lock Shortcut?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yeah, I use the icon now and have it positioned on my desktop in its order of how often I use it, as with my other icons. I know I could move it to the first position but, I'm trying to avoid that. I don't want to set it to automaticaly lock every minute, I just am always using my keyboard and was hoping there was a text shortcut so I don't have to scroll to the icon. I have looked over all the documentation that came with my device and browsed around RIM site, but I haven't found been able to find the shortcut I'm looking for. Usually when I can't figure something out or find an answer this is the place.

    Maybe someone will come along that has the 7290 and using it now. I recently got rid of mine, so I don't have access to it to play around with it.

    Press the K key, if you don't have dial from home screen set to Yes. or Press ALT (Half Moon)+Enter.

    Hope this helps.

    I press K on my 7250 to get it to lock. However, my friend just purchased a 7250 yesterday and I was trying to remember how to get K to lock his screen. Thanks for your post Rcbjr. The Alt+Enter is great to know as well. I hate having to use the scroll wheel to lock the screen. It is so much easier just to tap one or two keys.

    Yes, you have to have a holster that has the magnet in the appropriate place.

    Re: Keyboard Lock Shortcut?

    From the Home Screen, press the K key on your keypad. If the cursor does not leap to an icon, you’re in business. (This shortcut will not work if there is an application which has K as a shortcut key.) Go to the Telephone Application.

    From the main screen, select Options from the menu. Select General Options. Now, set Dial From Home Screen to No. From this point forward, pressing K will lock your keyboard.

    (from PC Today- it works)
