How Do I Assign a Custom Function To a Hotkey On the Microsoft USB Natural Keyboard?

Assign a custom function to a hotkey on the Microsoft® Natural USB keyboard.

To assign a custom function to a hotkey on the Microsoft Natural USB keyboard, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Start button, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Hardware, point to Keyboard, and double-click Intellitype Pro.
  2. Click the Hot Keys tab.
  3. Select Mail, Dell Computer Corporation, or Dell Technical Support*.
  4. At the bottom half of the window, select Custom, and click the Select button.
  5. On the new window that appears, type the path and filename of the program you want to assign to the key, or click Browse to find it.
  6. Click Ok, and click Ok again.

*These correspond to buttons labeled respectively Mail, and Dell Support, on the keyboard. These three buttons are the only ones you can reassign to a program. The Search button is also on this page, but you can only assign a custom URL to this button, and the Sleep button, also on this tab, only has an explanation of its function.
