Customizing Keyboard buttons

Hi guys, hope this is the right sub forum.

I have a shitty £7 PCline keyboard from PC world, and it has 3 buttons; WWW, search and email.

Since WWW opens my home page and my home page is google (which is what the search buttons opens) is there a way to change what that button opens?

The keyboard didn't come with any drivers, it was just plug and play.

Thanks in advance!

why not change your home page to something different. so that it dont go to google. i dont find the need to have google as me home page as i have it in the tool bar. i have mine set to me main fourm.

set it to your facebook or something maybe?

or do ya want it to do something else altogether other than go to a website?
