    They're quite useful if your mouse isn't working for whatever reason and you need to use Windows.

    I use break (and Control) in Visual Basic for when things go wrong.

    but what i meant is that i use the ones on the left not right.

    and programming in Visual Basic bah.
    /me prepares for abuse because so many people use it.
