    Hi all,

    I have a workstation setup with external, usb keyboards at work and home. When I switch between them, my keyboard modifier keys get reset all the time. For example, when I am at work, I switch the "alt" and "windows" key to mimic the Mac keyboard.

    When I am at home, I do the same thing with that external keyboard. But when I come back to work, the profile is reset; I need to do it again. Ditto for the home keyboard.


    I would like to not have this happen :)

    Are they the EXACT same keyboard, make and model?

    If not that could be the cause. I personally don't know of anyone that uses a Notebook as a workstation in 2 different places with keyboard, mouse and monitor at the 2 different places.

    Not that other don't I just don't know any.

    Even if they are the same make and model they may well have different IDs of some type making the computer react differently when you move the computer from one place to the other.
