I have the droid 2 and I don't know what I accidentally pushed, but now every time I try to type a "B" when I'm texting, it pulls up the browser and when I type a "G" it takes me to my gmail. I'm just trying to write a simple text and it's very frustrating. I'm also not technologically saavy, please help!

The Quick launch settings are in > settings > Applications > Quick launch.


having said that, they are only supposed to work when on the homescreen, not while entering text. Have you tried a battery pull and reboot?

When using your text in documents, are there any shortcuts, i.e., cut and paste similar to ctl c ctl v, etc. and others or not?

Ya, I'd like to know too. I tried copying a UPS tracking number from an email today and it wouldn't give me the options to copy. It gave me the select box, IE: The highlighter with the two arrows, but when i long pressed it, nothing.

Scottysize, do you think this thread is worthy of a "like"? I do believe it will be very helpful to all members. :biggrin:

In my previous forum entry, I copied the text to my Evernote and pasted it to this site.

Sent from my DROID RAZR using Droid Razr this works. LIKE!

The Swype editing keyboard view is also very helpful. Swype from the Swype key to the symbol key to access it.

Sliced from my RAZR

Long press to highlight text. Move the icons to highlight the text you want to copy. Then tap the text once in it down loaded to your clipboard.
Open what ever app that you want to paste the text into and then long press and paste will pop up. Piece of cake.

JohnnytheK - Thanks for spelling it out for our forum members. The above android forum has it posted as well aloong with numerious other shortcuts.

Does anyone have the link for "screen capture" for the RAZR? This would be an awesome app for troubleshooting, gaming, and more. Thanks to anyone!!!
