When you press buttons on a Dolphin keyboard, they do not perform the expected action, for example pressing the Dolphin button results in the Windows Calculator opening


To resolve this issue, please ensure your SuperNova hotkeys are set to "Desktop". To do this:

1. Press LEFT CONTROL + SPACEBAR. The SuperNova Control Panel opens.
2. Press ALT + G. The "General" menu opens.
3. ARROW DOWN to "Keyboard and Hotkeys" and press ENTER. A submenu opens.
4. ARROW DOWN to "Keyboard" and press ENTER. The "Keyboard" dialog box opens.
5. From the "Keyboard" drop down list, choose "Desktop (101) or more keys) then choose OK. The Dolphin Keyboard should now work as expected.
