Sorry I am not sure where should I post this (dunno where the actual problem is).
For unknown reason, I suddenly encountered problem with highlighting text on Internet Explorer (8) and words document (office 2003). I also have problem with dragging a cell (for copying a formula) to other cells in excell.
I tried to play around with my keyboard (pause/break and scroll lock key), sometimes it worked for once, but I it won't work the next time i tried.
FYI, I am using windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and a razer keyboard (using windows default driver). I probably can try to install the driver from razor, however, i thought there is probably a simple fix for the issue i.e. a certain key from the keyboard got activated by accident (my little daughter sometimes punched the keyboard for fun).
Any help would be much appreciated.
I had the SAME issue with IE 8 - I tried Googling about it for days to no avail. I then stumbled across the solution for my case.
Go to "View
" in the top menu bar (next to "File
" and "Edit
") and then see if "Panning Hand
" has been checked. If so, then UN
check it - after I unchecked it, I was then able to highlight text again as I had always been able to do previously.
Hope that helps someone else with this!
