Windows 7: How to associate a function key (F) with an application

How to associate a function key (F) with an application

Hello all,

I have two dictionary apps installed on my Win 7 x64 machine. One of them, Babylon, has this feature to be given a function key, say, F9, to show itself up for using. But the other, Longman, apparently lacks this useful feature. How to associate a function key with this one two, please?

My next question is, the forward and backward buttons of my mouse work well with Babylon, again, but they don't work with Longman. Is there any way to define them for that too?

Thank you.
