Download the attached PDF and print page 17 of the manual (Pg 11/14 in the PDF)

Only two steps are required to set the STX (Ctrl + B).

Under Prefix & Suffix Settings, scan the <Set to add Prefix> barcode, then scan the <All Codes Add Prefix STX> barcode.

If you make a mistake, or this doesn't resolve the issue, then you will need to print page 4 of the manual (page 5/14 of the PDF) and scan the following barcodes. 

To test that the STX Prefix (Ctrl+B) has been programmed successfully, Drop to a command prompt and scan a barcode (NOT one of the ones from the programming sheets)
 You should see something like this: 


What you are looking for is that the scanner scanned a ^B before the barcode and it translates to a little smiley face character on the next line. If this is what you see, you have correctly programmed the barcode scanner. 

If you are running Windows 10 and still do not get the ^B character, you will need to run the command prompt as an administrator on the local workstation, and on the remote session, then check the properties of the command prompt. 

  •  Click Search or right click on the Windows button on the task bar and select Search.
  •  Type cmd. Command Prompt should show at the top of the search window.
  •  Right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
  •  Right click on the top of the command prompt window where it says Administrator: Command Prompt, and select Properties.
  •  On the bottom of the Command Prompt Properties window, check the checkbox that says Use legacy console (requires relaunch).
  •  Click OK and then close the command prompt window.
  •  Relaunch the command prompt and scan a barcode. You should now see the ^B
