    F2 doesn't start a new Spider Solitaire game

    My favorite time-waster has just started this new behavior. Instead of starting a new game, F2 behaves like Control Z - it clears the most recent move. I've tried uninstalling / reinstalling the game but that hasn't helped.

    I'm running WIN7 64 bit with all patches installed. I know that this isn't the end of the world as we know it but if anyone can help me fix this, I'd appreciate it.

    Have you run any keyboard mapping software?

    Installed any new software recently?

    Thanks for your reply Joe.

    I haven't run any keyboard mapping software but that got me thinking. My MS keyboard has a Function Lock key and the alternate functionality for F2 is (you guessed it) Undo. I must have inadvertently pressed the Function Lock key at some point and that's why I was getting an Undo instead of a New Game.

    Regards,

    Dan

    Ha, that happens to me all the time...

    The first time it happened it took me forever to figure out what it was...
