Backspace in Flash

Whenever I use Club Penguin or an online game that uses flash, the backspace doesn't work. I push it and it automatically directs me to the previous page, it's just like I pushed the back button in the browser.

It is no bug but standard behaviour.

You can overrule the keyboard setting via Edit/Configuartion/Accelerators (that loads the user defined accel file).

You can use defaults/settings/accel.cfg for reference ( do not edit there! It is the default = standard settings file )

So how exactly do i change the backspace key back to performing a backspace instead of a backpage

I do not play games that need another non standard keyboard layout.
& I only know some things exactly when I tried them myself.

AFAIK this is the key You want to alter via user defined accel.cfg:

VK_BACK = ID_NAV_BACK

I'd try VK_BACK = VK_BACK

or VK_BACK =

Else disable it via (comment line out) "#" in the master file.


And You check what each solution exactly does. Best greetings to East Anglia.

Make sure that You have writing access at the place where the profile/file is located.

Grant explicitly writing rights: Right Click on file/folder & Change Properties/owner.

Sometimes Vista (also Win7) does not automatically give user rights.


p.s. I do not use Vista but this was answered to similar problems.

It seems to have accepted the change to the accelerators page and i could not find the writing rights to which you referred

Accelerators page now reads :
# K-Meleon Accelerators (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?id=ConfigFiles#accel)

# Syntax:
# <key1> [<key2> [<key3>]] = <command>
#
# - Lines beginning with '#' are ignored (comments)

# Note: The purpose of this file is to host your personal accel definitions.
# Here you can add accelerators that you are missing in the default
# configuration and you can override default settings by redefining
# them here. The default accelerators are defined in
# defaults\settings\accel.cfg in your K-Meleon installation directory.


# Middle-click links to the background:
#%ifplugin tabs
#MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_BACKGROUNDTAB
#%else
#MButton = ID_OPEN_LINK_IN_BACKGROUND
#%endif
VK_BACK = VK_BACK

Accepted the change means that I was wrong and this was not the reason.
You had rights. No idea what to try except what I already posted. sad smiley
