enable Keyboard functions keys..

NeptuneHACK! asked:

Open original thread
Hello fellow coders,
I have a "Logitech" Keyboard, but unfortunately no software bundle came with it, to help me use the Function keys "F1, F2, F3...etc" & as you know these keys are very useful if I could only write a program that runs in the background, that allows me to specify a function to each key under Windows7 Environment.

For Example:
F12 = Lock
F11 = Restart
F10 = Sleep
F9 = copy
F8 = paste
F7 = Cut
F5 = Run "Counter-Strike: Source"
F4 = Run "FireFox"
F3 = Auto-type the following sentence: "example......."

and so on..

So I was wondering if you guys could give me the right code to do this, you won't imagine how grateful I would be if you guys solved this issue for me.

Thank you in advance!
