    Apple Keyboards

    Just a quick question. I use a white Apple Pro keyboard with my PC - is it possible to rewire the ALT and Apple keys so they swap over?

    Look for a bit of software called Apple keys, i think it does the job and changes the F13....keys to print screen etc.

    I found the best way to get the apple keys to work properly was to go out, get out credit card, and buy yourself a new mac. Keys do what is written on them. Problem solved

    When I feel like playing with a childs toy instead of a computer, i'll be sure to do that

    Oh, and thanks to everyone who replied, that software is perfect.

    To resurrect a very old thread...

    I am getting an Apple keyboard that I want to use on my PC, which has PX pro SP2.

    Can anyone tell me if it'll work, and if there is some software that let's you re-programme keys?

    Cheers

    Plug it in. It works. I don't see the point though personally, the Apple keyboards are good for £19 but there are others which are just as good. Some of the IBM ones and Cherry boards are quality.

    Too late I got it. I quite like it, and the USB ports on it are handy. Thanks
