(I figured there might be a thread on this already, but I couldn't find one. I couldn't find a helpful source anywhere else, but I'm not sure where I'd look.)

I want to know how to change what the function keys across the top of the keyboard do. Mostly, I'm just sick of accidentally bumping F1 and having to wait for a help file to open. :thumbsup: But if there's a way to link them to more useful things, that would be awesome. I only ever use about three of them usually.

The Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools contains the following:

Remapkey.exe: Remap Windows Keyboard Layout

It should work on XP.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
