Not able to activate Action Replay :-(

Hi guys

This problem is born with the migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10

Previously i activated Action Replay pressing the PageDown button

Now in my new notebook the PageDown button is in the numeric keypad (key number 3)

I have disabled the WinUAE settings which maps the numeric keypad to the joystick logically

But i'm not able to activate Action Replay anymore

It seems like PageDown is not recognized

I guess it can be something due to the new Windows 10, but i really have no idea what can be actually

Any help is appreciated since i NEED to use Action Replay in some way

I don't know if exist other ways to activate the Action Replay

Thanks, chip

"page up" call the Action Replay.
try first with a Quickstart basic A500. At kickstart 1.3 prompt (the hand with a floppy disk ) press "page up".

No DamienD, already tried also the FN key

The PageDown and PageUp keys of the numeric keypad work just fine in Windows 10

I tried in the Windows file explorer and contents is scrolled up and down as expected using keys 9 and 3 of the numpad

Perhaps is something related to WinUAE ?

PgUp and Numpad 9 are different keys. WinUAE assigns different functions to them. Just use the input panel to assign "Activate Cartridge" to Numpad 9 or any other key you want to use instead.
