What do the symbols on the keys mean?

  • Is there a diagram or a listing of the keys and their symbols on the English keyboard of a Dell Inspiron 1526 laptop? For instance, there is a depiction of the sun with a small arrow above or below it on the up and the down arrow keys. And the letter k key hs a 2 on it. The key with ? and / on it also has a plus sign. What do all these things mean? Thank you.
  • If you push the Fn key and the up arrow, the display gets brighter; Fn and the down arrow makes the display lighter.

     

    If you hit the Num Lk (numerical lock), you activate the numerical keypad. With the numerical lock activated, when you push the Fn key and the /, a '+' is displayed. You can see the rest of the numbers and symbols in from the 7 to 0 in the top row, m to / on the bottom row.

  • And your Owners Manual should tell you what you want to know.
  • Thanks for the replies.
