    !! Self made keyboard shortcuts !!


    Have just come over from a chromebook to a surface laptop 2 and am really happy with it.

    I just want to know about keyboard shortcuts.

    I want to assign an internet 'page back' and 'page forward' keys on F1 and F2 like chromebooks do.

    I know you can use Alt-left or Alt-right but it doesn't feel natural.

    Some have said - just get used to it - but I want to know if Win10 has the power to assign things so specifically.

    It's a powerful system so I am hoping that it will.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks for your time in advance, ste.
