Default Keyboard shortcuts...

I am using the keyboard that came with my computer and it has 4 shortcut keys. When I press one it brings me to a site which tells me how to assign them. It tells me to go into my control panel, click on the keyboard icon, then go to the "buttons" tab. Problem is, there is no buttons tab...

Can anybody help me?

Did you get a disk with drivers for the keyboard or did you download the driver?

Either way, I suggest going back to the manufacturer's website, and getting the most updated driver (make sure it is for the correct model, and is compliant with your OS). From there, uninstall the existing driver, and try installing the one you just downloaded.

What kind of computer is it, and what is the model # of the keyboard?

Not only do you need to install the driver, you also need to install the application for the keyboard if you would like to configure those shortcut keys.
