How do I reassign hot keys for my keyboard?

You can reassign some keys to access different commands, shortcuts, or IntelliType Pro features to better fit your work style.


The options listed in this wizard vary depending on the key selected. For example, since you cannot reassign the Windows key, the only option available is to disable it.

To reassign a key

  1. Using the keyboard that you want to configure, start IntelliType Pro.
    (Click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Keyboard, and then click Microsoft Keyboard.)
  2. On the Key Settings tab, make sure that the correct Microsoft keyboard model name is displayed. (Available customisation keys depend on the keyboard you are using.)
  3. To select a different keyboard, click Change, select the correct keyboard, and then click OK.
  4. From the displayed list of key names, double-click the key you want to reassign.
  5. In the Reassign a Key dialog box, select the new behaviour for the key, and then click OK.
