Question

A Good Wireless Mini Keyboard

by The_Hyperborean / May 20, 2016 6:23 AM PDT

Hello,

I just wanted to know if anyone could recommend a good mini wireless keyboard for various purposes. The one I am most familiar with is the Measy model you can get off Amazon and eBay. It is cheap, but not very good quality. The trackpad/mouse is not the best and I have been through a couple already, so they are not very durable either. Picture for clarification given below in an eBay listing.



Thanks.

It''s very nice (I own a few.) The ones smaller than that turned out to be less than useful.

Battop Mini bluetooth

Lately CNet's Cheapskate has posted deals on this one, and I bit last time. While testing it out my first paragraph started sounding like a review so I just went with it, this is how it came out:

"Ok, touch type is possible. Having the colon/semi and the quotes keys half-size doesn't feel right. Tablet angle needs to be more upright, maybe a lower table? Keys feel just right, no accidental strokes recorded but not too much pressure required. I keep trying to hit the [+/=] key instead of the delete/backspace, and with my typing skills, you better believe I need that key a lot. There is a well-pronounced raised indicator on the [F] and [J] keys so that it's easy to feel when your index fingers are at home position. When using this with a 10" tablet the power buttons and lights are completely obscured by the tablet body. While that's probably not a problem, the caps light is there also, and is therefore completely useless. IMHO the best place for a caps lock light is in the middle of the caps lock key. Ditto number lock, but this keyboard has none that I can see, certainly no numbers on the keys indicating an inset numeric pad. No function keys either, not that I think it needs it; if you need all that, get a full-size desktop keyboard.

One reviewer mentioned that fn-enter works as a "send" key for texting. Gotta like that even if I'll never use it. I can't believe so many people complained that Battop didn't supply a rubber band to hold it closed in transport--I admired the guy who stole a hairband from his wife.

This is as good a Bluetooth keyboard as I've tried, using it with an Asus TF700 with a Marshmallow ROM gives no problems at all."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
