    Question Microsoft keyboard help?
    I'm considering buying the Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite keyboard. I have a G4-MDD running MacOSX 10.3.5, but I have a question. How do you open the CD when you don't have an eject key? Obviously to remove a CD you can drag it to the trash, or use the keyboard shortcuts, but using their keyboard, how do you open the CD drawer in the first place?? Anyone any ideas??

    Regards

    The MS Software for Mac lets you map keys so you can easily do that by changing another key to the Eject button

    Thanks very much for your help. I've now purchased the keyboard & mouse. But what a shame that of course MS had to ruin the experience a bit. The back & forth buttons on the mouse don't work using Safari, (the best browser out there) just IE!!!!!! Otherwise I think it's brilliant.

    I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard connected to my PowerMac G4, and the MS software does have the option to select which keys do what, however I am baffled as to which command to choose to ejct the cd player...where is the command or program you have to choose to make a desired key eject the cd player?

    Why on earth did the folkd at Mac make a simple thing like ejecting your disc drive so difficult??
