    Software to assign function keys?


    I would like to make function keys to mute, volume up, and volume down.

    How can this be done?

    Are there hot keys or shortcuts to do this?

    Or is there software that can assign these to function keys?

    No problem . In this instance I'm going to reassign Insert=Vol Down, Home=Mute Page Up=Vol Up.

    First click the key you want to reassign.

    Then I continued in a similar fashion and remapped Home and Page Up and ended up here and about to click Apply.
