Thread: Lost Hotkeys after running Tweaks

    I just went through the two big XP tweaking guides and my windows has never run smoother, faster and looked nicer!

    However, somewhere along the way i lost the ability to open files/programs with the hotkeys on my Microsoft Wireless keyboard. I used to use the controls for Winamp 5, but no longer. Also, for opening 'My Documents', 'Outlook Express', and 'My Music'.

    Any ideas as to which step may have caused this? I've tried deleting and reinstalling my keyboard drivers, but that didn't make a difference.

    It should be pretty straightforward - you've probably disabled the startup entry for your keyboard software which runs in the background to allow the hotkeys to work. Go to MSConfig and retick the app which controls your keyboard hotkeys to allow it to load at Windows Startup.
