Keyboard shortcuts

For switching applications and locking the screen, keyboard shortcuts are already predefined and you are free to customize them. To define keyboard shortcuts freely, follow the syntax rules given.

Defining Keyboard shortcuts

  1. Open Device configuration> Desktop > Keyboard shortcuts.

  2. You may select keyboard shortcuts for the following actions:

    Option Description How to define
    Switch applications Switch between open applications or sessions

    The default shortcut Alt+Ctrl↑ helps avoid conflicts with the shortcut Alt+Tab which is used to switch between the tasks within a Windows session.

    Select an option from the list-field.
    Log off1 Log off currently logged-on user (AD users)

    The logon dialog is then displayed.

    Specify the desired key combination as free-text, see below.
    Lock screen2 Activate password-protected screen saver (AD users)

    Default: <Ctrl><Alt>End

    Specify the desired key combination as free-text, see below. Otherwise, the default key combination is active.

Furthermore, you can define a key combination for multi-monitor environments that allows users to quickly switch between clone mode and extended desktop.3 For further information, see Multiple monitors.

Rules for specifying key combinations


Option Description
<Mod4><Alt>F1 Mod4 corresponds to the Windows logo key
<Mod4>Super_R (= right Windows button if used as key) Super_R corresponds to the Windows logo key on the right if used as a key
<Mod5>KP_End Mod5 corresponds to Alt Gr
KP_End corresponds to the End key of the numpad

If you define a key combination for eLux that is already defined within an application/session, this key combination will only work for eLux. Avoid using the same key combinations in different environments.

Behavior of the Caps Lock key

May be configured via user interface from Scout 15 2204, see Advanced mouse and keyboard settings.

In most environments, pressing the (Caps Lock) key in combination with letter keys results in the display of uppercase letters, while the number keys above the letter block output numbers despite the Caps Lock key. To display the special characters of the number keys, the Shift key must be pressed.

The Caps Lock key then behaves like the Shift key.
