    This newbie is gradually discovering the features of the Ee Pad. Does anyone know of a website that has a diagram of what functions the keys on the docking station keyboard perform? Many are a mystery to me! maybe it just needs trial and error? Thank you.

    The owner's manual for the keyboard had a description, believe it or not there are different keyboards for different languages.

    Most are self explanatory- top row on english version, left to right=

    back
    wifi on/off
    bluetooth on/off
    touchpad (below keyboard) on/off
    screen dim
    screen brighter
    screen auto-brightness
    take a screenshot (picture goes into a folder on the "mnt/ sdcard")
    launch internet browser (stock app, doubt it can be changed to an alternate)
    settings
    back (for media player)
    play/pause
    forward (media player)
    mute sound
    sound softer
    sound louder
    lock the screen

    Next to space bar are search (google), Home, and the "Function" keys. Rightside of the spacebar is the "context menu" button.

    EDIT: lots of typos (WOWSERS!), added some info.

    I have just received my Dock, but all the "Manual" tells you is how to connect to the Pad & charge it!!! The Download from Asus website gives virtually the same!!!
    Can you give a link to your source?

    Hi Molecular.
    Most of the keyboard was an equal mystery to me! I got this helpful information from forum member AutobahnSHO.

    I thought the buttons were pretty standard and didn't need an explanation. They use pretty much the universal symbols for what they do.

    Yes, probably so for experienced users like you? Sadly not for complete beginners like me. That's why I asked for help on this forum. The explanation I got was helpful to find my way around the keyboard. Thanks.

    might actually take a picture and start mapping words to what the buttons do for everyone, cos even i was preplexed at the start. i mean, why is the '1' and '6', uparrow and down arrow highlighted with a circle? what does that mean?

    Oh and no 'del' key?

    and odd there is no dedicated button or shortcut for 'recent applications'? there's back...lock...home, menu....but no 'recent applications' considering it's part of the bottom task bar on the left with 'back' and 'home'...

    Circles are just for quickly being able to see which keys are where.

    Agree with the "Del" key, it doesn't even work when I plug a standard USB keyboard in.
