Assigning a macro for mundane things...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK so I'm a noob when it comes to KB's and programming them. I have a Sidewinder X6 which is in desperate need of replacement and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with a mechanical next time around (either K95 or G710) but my Sidewinder does have a nice feature I don't want to lose: A dedicated calculator button. I've been looking for this feature on every KB and none seem to have it but then I remembered that they all have tons of programmable macros. Is it possible to program a macro to just pull up my calculator? That would really make my decision to go ahead and replace my X6 that much easier. Thanks guys...

Yep, I just figured it out in 5 seconds. I am in Windows 7. I have my calcualator down in my quick launch icons. Right click on the icon, for me it popped up a menu displaying "Calculator" and "Unpin this program from taskbar". So right click on the Calculator program and go to Properties. Under the shortcut tab there is a nice little "Shortcut key" option. Just type whatever key(s) you want into that. Easy peasy. smile.gif
