F12 and other keys are not working for me....

Hi everyone!

I was here once before briefly about 2 years ago when I was setting up my emulator on my PC.

Now I'm back trying to set it up on my laptop, lol.

I don't know why, but none of the keys (F12, F11, ALT, CTRL, Windows key) that you might use to exit the emulator window once it's running are working. Nothing happens.

My cursor becomes 'trapped' in the window and the game. I have to press CTRL+ALT+DEL (which still seems to work) and Cancel to get my Windows cursor back.

Is it a problem with my laptop system settings? Or a WinUAE setting?

Wierdly I never had this trouble on my PC back at home. That was Windows XP, this laptop has Windows 7.

Any advice? The game works but I can't exit to save.

(and yes, the game I'm trying to play is.... Elite.) haha

I think when you press F12 emulator window is not visible because of used screen resolution. Try highest possible and drag emulator window to the center of screen.

Normally only F12 (opens GUI) and ALT+TAB can be used to uncapture Windows mouse.

Do you have some custom input configuration or did you use some external utilitity to change F11 and other keys?
