hello everyone,

For some reason when I turned on my computer, I realized that my "esc" key turned in to the "windows" key. i need to use my "esc" key to quickly close msn convos and such. Now, whenever I press 'esc" the start menu comes up.

Can someone please help me change my 'esc' back to normal??

info:

I have a G15 keyboard v2 with the lastest software.

thanks a lot

Just thought as well - my G15 has a slider that disables the standard Windows key - I don't know if there's a software switch that sets ESC to work like windows if the switch is enabled? I don't use it myself, I only have a G15 for the macros.

I found that my esc key was disabled at one point. I thought it was broken. After pulling the key off the keyboard and poking at it a bit gave up and started reading posts. I figured out that by me having Photoshop open it disables this key. So ...all this time I had a project open that I did not save yet and no esc key. Closed Photoshop and it all went back to working fine. There is a script that can be downloaded to allow the key to work while Photoshop is open but thats not my thing. I didn't try to do all that.
