In my case, my new laptop did not have dedicated home, end, or
applications keys, three keys that I use frequently. You had to
use the function key with the PageUp and PageDown keys to get the
home and end actions. It did have three music navigation keys,
which I did not need. I remapped those three keys to home, end,
and applications keys. They work perfectly and make using the
computer so much easier.

Does the laptop have a numpad?
If so, you may not find a need to reassign anything. If it
doesn't have one, you can buy a USB numpad if you want to use

Remapping Keys on Laptop
Hi. I just got a laptop and haven't begun to fight, as it were.
But tell me, or us, if you wish, what you've renamed. Inquiring
want to know.
The first thing I did was to have a friend turn off the mouse
Sorry, I did get that done by a sighted friend of mine. Could I
done it myself? Yes, but it was tricky for him, and he works I T
and day out every day. Could I have done it on my own? Probably;
it would have been a time-waster. And that is why I do sometimes
things done for me.
I don't have to prove anything to myself. I can do many things I
not to do, because doing them would complicate life; and not doing
does not make me less capable.
Sorry, but that's my take on this.
And to nail it down, I just love BeMyEyes. It is so delightful to
someone do a little reading or identifying. the other evening
spoke to an american in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. two nights later, I
to a delightful lady in Iran.
