    Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    I recently purchased a new OEM computer. I am running Windows 98 SE and Office 2000 on a machine with an Athlon 1000. I have an IBM Rapid Response keyboard. When I hit Ctrl+home, the Find and Replace dialog box pops up, rather than taking me back to the beginning of the document. When I press the "home" key to go to the beginning of the line, nothing happens. When I select text and press the "delete" key, I get a message at the bottom of the Word window asking whether I want to block delete. I have to choose No, then hit enter, before the selected text will be deleted. These shortcuts only seem to be non-functional in Word 2000. Can anybody offer any sggestions? Thanks!

    Rather than refer you to other posts that would tell you the same thing, give this a shot:
    Navigate to Tools / Options / General Tab.
    Uncheck the "Help for WordPerfect Users" option.
    That should take care of the difficulties you're experiencing.
    Good luck!

    As an additional note,

    Both WP options need to be turned off: WP Navigation and Help.

    Thanks so much _ I had one of the Wordperfect options checked. After clearing it, everything seems to be OK. Thans again!
