    Hi all,

    Great group here. Real people without 'tudes are hard to find.

    I have the multimedia keyboard with the five shortcut buttons at the
    top left, just to the right of the sleep button.

    My last keyboard had a, "Browser Back", button in the upper left
    corner, right were my halfmoon "sleep" button is now. Is there any way
    to reconfigure this button to "Browser Back"?

    Second choice would be to configure the Search button from the top row
    to Browser Back.

    Third choice would be the ~ button, which I hardly ever use, and can
    live without.

    Also, I really like the, "Switch Between Windows", button on the
    taskbar, where you can window-pane all the windows you have open. Can
    one of the shortcut buttons at the top be configured for this? Might
    be pretty handy, huh?

  2. Whether or not buttons on the keyboard can be reconfigured depends on the
    keyboard drivers and/or utility software that comes with the keyboard, as
    Vista doesn't support this natively. You could also try a Google search for
    a utility to do this but I doubt there are any free ones.
