Hey Guys,

I am thinking of getting a new keyboard. I want one of those laptop sized keyboards that are nice and quiet. Is there a way to map the master volume control to say the + and - Keys on the number pad? Those are probably the only 2 multimedia keys i would miss having. Thanks.

Thanks LH....i just looked at it. Not sure how to use it...trying to figure it out. Seems like there has to be an easier way.

I used to do things like that a long time ago. I had to write my own programs to do it :)

For WMP, I believe the default hotkeys are,
Play / Pause - Ctrl+P
Stop - Ctrl+S
Previous - Ctrl+B
Next - Ctrl+F
Rewind - Ctrl+Shift+B
Fast Forward - Ctrl+Shift+F
Shuffle - Ctrl+H
Repeat - Ctrl+T
Volume Up - F10
Volume Down - F9
Volume Mute - F8

So all you would have to do is remap the F9 and F10 keys.
