Shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F1 does not work

If the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F1 does not work the problem is not linked with the application that you are using but maybe with the computer that you are using, I noticed that is a problem in Dell machines.

Shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F1 does not work

Solution:

Use Ctrl+Alt+WinKey+F1

NOTE (by Daniele Rebussi): This solution applies also when NAV is used via Citrix/VMWare visualization environments, where Ctrl+Alt+F1 combination covers other functionality.

On-Screen Keyboard with F keys

Update of 01/06/14: More persons asked me more info because they thought by mistake that Fn button is the same of the Fn button in laptop’s keyboard.
If you need to enable/disable WiFi for example in Windows 7, you could use the WinKey + X

SDK update for Windows Phone 7.8 – “The element “Deployment” in namespace “http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsphone/2009/deployment” has invalid child element “AppExtra”. List of possible elements expected: “App”.”

The element “Deployment” in namespace “http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsphone/2009/deployment” has invalid child element “AppExtra”. List of possible elements expected: “App”.

In Italian

L’elemento “Deployment” nello spazio dei nomi “http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsphone/2009/deployment” ha un elemento figlio non valido “AppExtra”. Elenco di possibili elementi previsti: “App”.

Cause:
Installing the Windows Phone 8 SDK, the schema files of the previous version will update too. If you haven’t installed it and you want to work with Visual Studio 2010 you have an old version of schemas that not contains the <AppExtra> node, so the error appears because the xsd file cannot validate your WMAppManifest.xml file with the new lines

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Deployment xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsphone/2009/deployment" AppPlatformVersion="7.1">
  <AppExtra xmlns="" AppPlatformVersion="8.0">
    <Extra Name="Tiles"/>
  </AppExtra>

Solution:
Download and replace the following files inside you Visual Studio 2010 installation folder at the path like this:

C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\\Xml\\Schemas

Rename the Microsoft.Phone.PreImport.targets file in

C:\\Program Files\\MSBuild\\Microsoft\\Silverlight for Phone\\v4.0

append “_” at the end of the filename: Microsoft.Phone.PreImport.targets_ (I’m searching other ways for this part of solution)

Close and re-open Visual Studio 2010 then Rebuild your solution.
