    mapping ctrl-alt-del and alt-tab to F6,F7,tc.

    i've got one of those mini keyboards that is missing buttons like shift,alt, tab, etc. i was wondering is there any software that i can use to map something like f5 or f6 to functions like alt-tab and ctrl-alt-delete?

    i use a program called hot keyboard pro. great little software, but it's pay...i don't know if there are freeware apps that do the same thing tho. probbably, but i have been using it for about 5 years now for various purposes and am kind of used to it.

    I believe ctrl+alt+del is impossible to recreate with software because that key combination is picked up by the hardware which triggers an interrupt which tells windows to do whatever. Windows doesn't actually see this combination, just the interrupt sent by the hardware. I've never been able to find a way to recreate this interrupt, but I never looked that hard either. If you just want the Task Manager that comes up when you hit ctrl+alt+del, you can use that autohotkey program referenced above to open "taskmgr.exe". That will give you the Task Manager.

    yup, thats what i ended up doing. or leave taskmgr running in the background (and disable always on top) and then use alt-tab to get to it.
