Change Back/Forward buttons to Previous/Next

February 22nd, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Over the past few weeks we've been testing the Microsoft ComfortCurve Keyboard 2000 and we love it!  Its keys are nice and responsive, it's comfortable to use, and its buttons are in very intuitive places.  The best part is it's practically a steal - we've seen it for as low as $15.  It has only one minor flaw which is that there are very few multimedia buttons.  There are play/pause, volume up/down, and mute.  But there are no buttons for stop, previous, or next.

There were however browser Back/Forward buttons.  And we never use the mute button.  For some reason, SharpKeys, which we've used in the past wouldn't do the job.  The keyboard came with software called IntelliType but it used a great deal of RAM and, oddly, slowed down our cursor a great deal.  No matter.  This is an excellent excuse to point out again just how much we like AutoHotkey.
