Windows 7: Microsoft multimedia keyboard

Microsoft multimedia keyboard

I have a Microsoft Multimedia keyboard KB-0168.
Worked fine on XP but now that I have upgraded to a Win 7 system the keys across the top wont take me to whats labelled .
eg one key says "My Documents" which in win7 is just called documents. I went into Start/Device & Printers/ Right Click/ Keyboard Settings/Configue,
but cant get to the right path path to re-assign the key.
Have updated from Microsoft the "IntelliType Pro" to v7.1.
Any suggestions, I would be gratefull.
This is a great keyboard to use for use "oldies" as it is white with black letters on keys, much easier to see than black with white letters.

Is this keyboard compatible with Windows 7?

F Lock key does nothing

And yes, Microsoft say it is compatable with Win 7.

Edit; Just found out from another M/Soft website that the keys giving me strife are called "Hot Keys". Might shed a different light on subject or not.
