Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 Keyboard Zoom Key to Scroll Key February 19, 2007

I am not a major user of the Zoom functionality in the MS Ergonomic keyboard. I would rather set the zoom key to scroll up and down in applications.

After hunting around the configuration utility supplied with keyboard I was still clueless about the zoom key’s configuration.

I then spotted a command.xml in the installation directory of the config utility. Editing a couple of sections did the trick ..

The file has a section
<ALL>
<Application UniqueName=”StandardSupport”>
<C309 Type=”5″ KeySeq=”ctrl F4″ />
..
..
..
<C319 Type=”6″ Activator=”ZoomIn” />
<C320 Type=”6″ Activator=”ZoomOut” />
<C1101 Type=”6″ Activator=”HorizontalScroll” />
<C1003 Type=”7″ Subtype=”0″ />
</Application>

Modify
<C319 Type=”6″ Activator=”ZoomIn” />
<C320 Type=”6″ Activator=”ZoomOut” />

to

<C319 Type=”6″ Activator=”ScrollUp” />
<C320 Type=”6″ Activator=”ScrollDown” />

There will be similar entries against specific applications also, so you can modify the behaviour for specific applications by editing the corresponding entries over there.

Now,
– Double click on mskey.exe and then Actions > Close Microsoft Intellitype pro
– Double click on type32.exe

You’re done 🙂
