    Function key emulation?


    I use a Microsoft ergonomic 4000 USB Keyboard and I'm wondering if there is some way to emulate the FN key from the laptop keyboard.

    I really hate not having immediate access to the functions, but I need the 4000 keyboard due to cts in both my wrists and the pain that is caused by trying to type on the laptop keybard.

    Any suggestions to be able to use the functions of the laptop with a USB attached keyboard?

    I don't have a confirmed answer for this, but maybe an idea. I would look into macro recording and playback applications. Get one that is free or has a trial in case it doesn't work. See if it can capture the keystroke combinations for the Fn keys and then bind them to something like CTRL+SHIFT+[KEY] so that they work on the external keyboard as well.
