Method to Remap Global Hotkeys

I've found a method to remap the normal hotkeys using TweakUI, but I also know that certain programs (such as Winamp) allow the use of Shift+Hotkey. I'd like to specify Shift+Media as a different media player if possible.

Ive lost my hotkeys on my keyboard

Sounds like your keyboard driver has either stopped working or has been removed. Keyboards will function as normal without specific drivers but hotkeys etc. wont work. Look at the manufactures web site for keyboard drivers, usually they are pretty good at providing the downloads. without them installed correctly hotkeys will not work. Once installed run the software and check the keys assignments.

How do I reverse selections on number pad? I presume it is achieved with a key stroke like the caps lock. Which one?

I am not clear on what you want to do ... you don't want to put the 1 where the 7 is ... do you?

You can set your key pad to be numbers or you can use the other features listed on the keys, To change between numbers and features, you press the "Num Lock" key which is normally just above the 7 key.

If you do want to put the 1 where the 7 in, for example, you will have to remap your keyboard. And this is entirely possible ... I am not going into that detail here ... it is beyond the scope of what happens here normally. You can find instructions for remapping from Dell or any other fine computer manufacturer. Also, if you want to pursue this, you could 'goggle' remap my keyboard' for instructions.

Dell usb keyboard rt7d10, volume, etc buttons not working in windows 7 64 bit.

I found a program here that enables the buttons, you have to put the program in your startup and it will map the 7 hotkeys (7hk) to their functions.

Good Luck!

Shift key shuts down my computer

Someone is probably playing a prank on you. Disable the services one by one until you find the program that is assigning those programs hotkeys so programs can't run with hotkeys.
