    Two questions:
    Generic Keyboard plugged & Prayed nicely but wondering if I can get the F keys to do anything?
    Second question Lenova mouse works well but cursor so small & black, can't see it most of the time. Tried Lenova.com but nothing for android machine.
    Both units are USB & please don't tell me to buy a wireless anything. Just want SOME function from F keys & want a better mouse cursor.
    Thanks for letting me post...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I have not gotten any F-key love from an external keyboard. Not sure about the mouse cursor either, I get a small black arrow, but I feel it is adequately useful on my device. Not sure if it is the same one or if the Acer has a different mouse icon.

    The FUNCTION keys only word on windows.

    If you want the Function keys to work - you may have program them yourself.

    You may not have much of a choice with the mouse pointer either.
