PS3 Keyboard Command list

10 replies 44674 views Edited Jan 20, 2008
For those of you who use a keyboard a lot you probably have already explored what each button does on the PS3.

For those of you who are new to this I've gone ahead and created a list of what button does what on the PS3.

(Going from left to right on the keyboard.)
Esc = Circle.
F1 = Triangle.
F2 = Square.
F3 = Select.
F4 = Start.
F5 = Refresh Page. (Web browser use only.)
BackSpace = L1, or "Back." (Web browser use only)
Shift+Backspace = R1, or "Forward." (Web browser use only)
Tab = Select next item. (Web browser use only)
Shift+Tab = Select Previous item. (Web browser use only)
Enter/Return = X.
The Window/Apple/S3 = PS Button. (Can not be held. Must turn off Console Manually.)
Arrow keys = D-Pad.
Delete/Del = Delete words after line. (Text Box use only.)
Home = Top of page. (Web browser use only.)
End = Bottom of Page. (Web browser use only.)
Page Up/Down = Scroller. (Web browser use only.)
Spacebar = Scroll Down. (Web browser use only.)

Now if only there were button combinations for L2, R2, L3, and R3.
However I am considered a hostile worker apparently...

Is there a button that allows you to turn on the PS3 via the keyboard?

Sorry but you must power on the Playstation via another controller or by hand.

The keyboard feature only works on things such as the broweser, XMB menu, and text fields. Some games may allow the use of keyboards, but usually they will not work

The W,A,S,D keys are the same as the directional buttons... Netflix and some other apps are compatible with keybaord. I can't get the ps menu to show up using the keybaord.. what key is it? Also a number keypad is compatible... 4/left 6/right 8/up 2/down . Hitting F4 while selecting media, will play it. In the browser, page up/down will scroll the page. Spacebar will scroll down faster..
Number lock and caps lock also work. The scroll lock doesn't do anything as it is the most rarely used key and has no features on the PS3 as far as I know. Shift + backspace will erase any text in the input box. F5 will refresh the page in the browser.
