Re: asining key board commands to different keys?



Thanks for the idea but as you pointed out it would be a pain since I jump in and out of that program all the time.

I need to be in multiple programs at once.

Thanks again

Offhand, I haven't a clue how you would set that up, especially for just one application. Are there other keystroke combinations that you want to change, or just the insert+up arrow on the num pad? If there are other combinations that you find troublesome, why not change to the laptop layout while you're in the app, then switch back to the desktop layout when you're finished. It may be more hassle than it's worth, especially if you're bouncing in and out of that window all the time, but hey, I thought I'd throw that out as a possible suggestion anyway.

Do you not want to use the actual “insert”+”home”  keys either?  or the “insert”+”up arrow key” combination?  Are you just wanting the command combo to be on the main keyboard/ alphanumeric and modifier keys?

Hello all,

I am not at all sure how to explain what I want to do but I am going to try.

Jaws has a Key stroke “Insert Num pad 8” Which in the keyboard help says that it “JAWSKey+UpArrow
Says the current line.”

This key stroke in my time collection program reads the job and job type.


What I want is exactly what this is doing but, I want to make a different set of keys do this action. I want to keep my fingers off the number pad.

I would prefer something like Ctrl Shift J.

And if possible make this only apply to one program.

Can I do this?
If so I want to do the same thing to the “insert numpad7” JAWSKey+Home
Says the text from the beginning of the line up to the active cursor.


Can I mimic the behavior of these key strokes with different keys?


Thanks a lot!
