I am using MS laser keyboard 6000 v2 on XP partition  with latest mouse/keyboard with latest mouse/keyboard software.  I cannot find a key on this keyboard that will open/close CD tray. How do assign a key on the MS keyboard to do this?

    Hi,

     

    I don't have that keyboard but on my MS Wireless keyboard I have  Media key that does that.

     

    It also came with software that installed a System Preferences pane.

    I have more control there of assigning keys and stuff. (Although MS do insists a second window opens up - very non System Preferences)

    Ralph:  Thanks for your reply. The keyboard I referenced does not have a media key.  When you refer to the System Preference pane, do you mean the one under the apple menu or somewhere in XP?

    Hi,

     

    I use an MS Wireless keyboard with my Mac (G4 listed below)

     

    I have not tried it on my MacBook Pro and Bootcamp (Also XP)

     

    So I was talking about the Mac's System Preferences.

    It opens this second window

    Microsoft Keyboard

    I have not looked in XP to see if there is something similar but I am sure there is. (Or yuou may have to Install any Keyboard Software into XP)

    Hi again,

     

    I used two different methds to insert the pics.

     

    The First provides a Link to my Skitch account at the pic involved.

     

    The second if clicked will open the pic in an iFrame to save Scrolling left and right.

    Ralph:  I continued to search for an answer, and it was suggested to hold down the f12 key.  It worked, but I don 't know why it worked now, and did not when I first tried it.  Thnks anyway.

    Glad you found the answer.


    Thanks for letting us know.
