    create a text file with the following


    'VBScript Example
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    'WshShell.Run "%windir%\notepad.exe"
    'WshShell.Appactivate "Notepad"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "a"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{%p}"
    WshShell.SendKeys "r"
    WshShell.SendKeys "r"
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
    Save it as
    script.vbs


    Check out the following for more commands

    and

    Then Copy the script somewhere, create a shortcut on your desktop

    Goto File properties, and then shortcut.
    Then under shortcut key enter whatever, F4 etc.

    im sure you could do this for what you want

    I don't think it would be a good idea in the futur if you play games or use anything that needs the F keys.

    but the way i suggested, the keys arent permenantly remapped - so you wouldnt have the problem
