Unable to customize keys for itunes/media player

Hi, I want the keys on the top right of the board to open iTunes instead of Windows Media Player, and control volume, pause, playback, rewind fast forward when focus is off itunes. Is this possible? Frustrating as there are no online manuals or software (SetPoint isn't on my system). TIA!

    Thanks for the tip, but this didn't work. In Control Panel I clicked on 'Printers and Other Hardware' but there was not a 'Printer Properties' dialog. There was a 'Keyboard' icon though, which I know about. Opening either 'Keyboard' or 'Printers and Faxes' did not reveal a Key Settings option.

Use of crescent key above escape key in model HP 5187-7583 Silver Multimedia Keyboard With Media Player

The crescent key is for the computer to go night night!
Look under power settings in control panel this could be a key that can be reprogrammed. Usually out of the box it will but the computer into sleep mode.

For some key boarda the "Fn" key and crescent both need to be depressed.

Shaking the mouse or hitting space bar will wake up the computer.

Hope this helps?

What function do the keys along the top of the KG 0570 keyboard perform?

If you are talking about the special function keys, their function is determined by the program you are using. Normally, you won't use them. The exception is the F1 key which is universally used for "help."

GE HO98058 Keyboard Special Function Hot Keys

I'm not familiar with JetAudio, however in most media players you can choose for that to be the default player. I would make sure it is your default player first and then try to use it with the keyboard. The instruction manual only mentions compatibility with Windows Media Player though so it just may not work.
