Keyboard question...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I believe that i've heard others talk about this, but I don't remember for sure. I have an iBook 700 and decided that i use it so much that I needed an Apple Pro Keyboard for home use to save wear on the built in keyboard, and it's just easier to type on. And of course really cool looking. Anyway, my question is...Isn't there a way to program (assign) functions to certain keys? Meaning, if I want to skip or replay a song in iTunes I could simply hit the F14 or F15 keys to do so, that way i'm not hiding windows or bringing the app to the front all of the time.

Thanks in advance.

    I hate QuicKeys X. It has to keep this little application open in the dock, which is annoying.

    You might also try doesn't leave apps running, works in the background.

    uh yeah, HotApp is smaller and also quite quick.

    they just don't do the same thing.

    True, HotApp does less, but it does do most of the mundane stuff, plus some iTunes things, as cyko mentioned.
