Logitech MK320 Keyboard Now Meets All My Needs
Published December 10, 2018
I’m finicky when it comes to keyboards. I have several computer keyboards that I rotate. I rotate them based on need and preference. If I could find one keyboard to meet all of my needs, I wouldn’t have to rotate them. Unfortunately, I haven’t found that one perfect keyboard...or so I thought!. With the recent discovery of a utility software program for the Logitech MK320 keyboard, my round-robin game of keyboard switching is over! Oh, Happy Day!.
I’m about to make a short story very long. So if you came to this post to find out how I was able to make the Logitech MK320 keyboard meet all my needs, scroll down to the heading entitled “Making the Logitech MK320 Keyboard Meet All My Needs”. In the meanwhile, let the long story begin...
Computer Keyboards Everywhere
Below are the various computer keyboards in my stable and the reasons why they had to be rotated:
BTW, I’ve solved the volume up/down/mute problem. The video below explains how to resolve the problem.
Making the Logitech MK320 Keyboard Meet All My Needs
In case you skipped my prattling above (and I don’t blame you), the problem I had with the MK320 keyboard was the lack of Cap lock and Num lock indicators. That’s especially problematic in today’s username/password web browsing. Too many attempts with the caps or num lock on/off and you run the risk of getting locked out of a site.
I typed my complaint into Dr. DuckDuckGo (switched from Dr. Google) and found a link to Logitech’s support page entitled, “MK320 KEYBOARD CAPS LOCK AND NUM LOCK INDICATORS.” I clicked the link and learned that Logitech has a software program called SetPoint that displays on-screen caps/num lock indicators. I much prefer having an indicator light on the keyboard, but onscreen works too.
I downloaded and installed SetPoint. Finally, after a little over a year of owning the computer keyboard, I now have the appropriate indicators. What the program does is it displays a ghost notification on the computer screen. The notification lasts for a few seconds, just long enough to let you know what’s going on.
With the installation of one program, I can stop rotating my keyboards. I’m ready to give the unnecessary keyboards away. I’ve tried giving them to my family, but the young folks can live without keyboards. Guess I’ll have to put them in a display case right next to my old Underwood typewriter.
This Grandma’s Observation
As I write this, I’m truly beginning to think I’ve got a keyboard addiction. I scrolled through my past Amazon orders and found that I had owned two additional keyboards. One was the Devicewear plug and go for my iPhone (which crapped out on me early). The other was the Logitech keyboard and stand combo for Android. That too crapped out on me.
Anyone know the time and location of the next Keyboard Addiction meeting?
UPDATE 1/18/20: My keyboard died.
