Windows 7: How Can I Create a Mic Mute/Unmute Key on my Keyboard?

How Can I Create a Mic Mute/Unmute Key on my Keyboard?

I own a Razer Kraken Pro headset, which unfortunately does not have a mic mute/unmute button built into it, or on the wire itself. I am constantly getting interrupted by my family when I'm trying to play games with friends, and my friends can hear everything my family says to me, which I don't want them to. On my keyboard, there is a multimedia key that can be used to launch the default internet browser, but I don't use it. So, is there a way I can modify that key to mute/unmute the mic instead of launching the internet browser?

Thanks in advance.

unfortunately; unless there is some kinda software available from the manufacturer; then most likely there probably is not any way to create a custom key unless you look through and see if the keyboard has a separate icon in control panel that will let you customize it.
