How do I program Keyboard Hotkeys

I'm trying to make one open and close my dvd drive since the dumbass who designed the case for HP didn't think about not being able to press the close button once the drive is opened.

Hi trey803,

You can usually close the door on your optical drive by gently pushing the tray in.
