My keyboard has extra buttons for connecting to the internet, checking email
and playing cds/dvds/mp3 (play, pause, skip) but the buttons don't do anything
when i push them. How do I assign the buttons to these tasks?
Generally speaking, the keyboards that have these buttons come with software
that will install the
driver for the keyboards and allow you to configure the
buttons to do whatever you want them to do. If you have not already installed
this software, then do so and that should give you the chance to configure the
If cannot install the software, then select the "Control Panel" option on the
Start menu. Within the Control Panel, see if you have a Keyboard option. I
actually have two keyboard options, one named "Keyboard" and one named "Keyboard
(Rapid Access)". I would use the "Keyboard (Rapid Access)" option to configure
the buttons at the top of my keyboard. If you only have the "Keyboard" option,
then open that and look around in there to see if you can find the configuration
for those buttons. I can't really guide you any further than that because all
keyboards and keyboard drivers are different.
Let me know if you need anything else.
