    Default shortcut keys to multiple monitors.

    I have a problem, and although I have looked I have not yet found the solution, so I will ask for our help. I have 3 monitors on my computer (I originally only wanted two, but hey I am not going to complain with three) for some reason my computer thinks that anytime I press a number between 1 and 3, that this is some kind of shortcut key so it places whatever I am working on in the appropriate monitor between one and three. This for me has become a Bible works issue since I spend time on it, and I am very often doing typing numbers, however, just recently while Bibleworks was jumping from monitor two to monitor one, I somehow lost my browse window, I don't know what happened to it, it claims that it is there, but I cannot find it, I can make due by opening a new browse window, but would much prefer to have my old one back, does anyone know how to reset the original configuration? and also does anyone know how to get rid of this most annoying shortcut keys for the monitors, all help is much appreciated.

    searching through the BibleWorks Help files, I did find a way to reset my configuration using the BBW configuration Manager by enabling it and then clicking "Initialize and Load" at startup you can reset the original settings. With this I now have my browse window back. However, I still do not know what to do with the shortcut keys for switching monitors.

    Do you use a multi-monitor tool like UltraMon? It sounds like something is controlling your configuration but rather erratically. If you have something that you know how to run, that might tweak this problem.

    Thank you Mike, I am not using UltraMon, but I was using an external adapter for the third monitor, when you mentioned what it sounded like to you, I checked the driver for this adapter and found that it was the culprit, it had added the shortcut keys and I did not know it when it was installed, so I have switched the shortcut keys and have now fixed the issue at hand. so thank you very much.

    Hey Chris (and Michael), I notice both you guys have an MDiv from Concordia Seminary. Do you guys know each other from there?

    Yes, both from there and undergraduate as well. Chris will love me sharing this, but I was his Greek tutor. I hear he still has nightmares about it.
