Re: cant scroll with arrow buttons

Under Control Panel - All Items, there are 54 items listed, None are Performance and Maintenance, hardware, or systems. So I can't follow your instructions.

 

Now I find alsi that I can't drag a file and drop it into a folder. All other functions seem to work OK.
