When I run GTMP on my MacBook Pro (client) to connect to my office PC running Win10Pro with Office 2016 (host), it's quite hard to use the MacBook Pro keyboard to do things on my office PC or in its Word 2016. I am badly hampered by the lack of a "full" keyboard (with number pad on the right) on the MacBook, and the usual keyboard shortcuts just don't work. I am a big and very fast user of keyboard shortcuts, especially in Word and Outlook.
So I have connected a standard wired Dell "full" keyboard to my MacBook Pro (with a small dongle to connect the keyboard's USB plug to the MacBook's Thunderbird socket), on first connection the MacBook asked me some questions about the keyboard, and now it's all working MUCH better!! I am typing this with that Dell keyboard on the MacBook Pro connected via GTMP to my office PC which is now connected to this forum via its Firefox browser.
HOWEVER - a few tiny glitches so far:
Any ideas about those issues?
Also, while the full normal Dell keyboard is doing a great job for me, and it's not heavy, it's also not what we think of as "portable". What would be a portable version of this very standard full keyboard WITH A SIMILAR STANDARD LAYOUT FOR ITS KEYS?
(If you've ever seen the movie "Brazil", you'll appreciate my setup.) Thanks.
Hi @glnzglnz ,
Nice to see you around. I can try to help you out with your inquiries:
Kate G - You wrote above, "I'm sharing the report of a lag with the team, thanks for your report".
And what more portable setup should I get for the next time I travel with the MacBook Pro? The Dell keyboard worked (except for the minor glitches above), but it was large and I would prefer something(s) more portable as you seem to suggest.
But its layout should match the standard Dell completely. No putting keys in odd places because then I will then make lots of mistakes. (I go fast on a standard Dell PC keyboard.)
Hi @glnzglnz, I would suggest searching for Mac compatible travel keyboard to see what is available in your location.
