    Hi folks.

    Do you know if there is a way to make a couple of the keys on a "normal" keyboard useful for increasing/decreasing volume? My old keyboard had the volume up/down keys, but I really like my new keyboard better. I miss those keys, though.

    Thanks. Cheers.

    In Windows, no. In KDE/Linux, yes. Sorry, but unless you use Linux, you will have to get a new keyboard if you wish to control your volume with it. A lot of keyboards come with such controls, and are fairly cheap. A quick search for "volume" in the NewEgg keyboards section gave me this list. A search for "media" gave me this one.
