shortcut keys

Hi there,
I kinda needed a shortcut key for renaming a file. I know that F2 is the key for the said function. However, my keyboard has a different function assigned to it namely; NEW. Now I have googled with a lot of possible combinations of words to try to find a website/page that could tell me how to create new shortcut keys for windows but with no luck. I am hoping that someone here knows how to either assign a new function to the F2 key or create new shortcut keys for windows and not just any specific program. By the way, I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to create new shortcut keys for windows. Thx in advance.

(NT) How did you assign the "new" to F2?

No, I didn't....

it had already been assigned to the F2 key. The F2 key has the word 'NEW' on it and whenever I highlight an item or icon to rename it and press F2, nothing happens. Hoping now you'd be able to understand my situation...

I deleted a post by 'summeryoung001'. It included a spam link to another web site not related to this question.

I have not researched the tool he has offered.

Hi are you familiar with the "Ditto Tool?" You can download that. It will going to help you assign a different keywords or hotkeys on perspective keyboard function. try to search in google or youtube on how to use it. I've been using that for years and it help me a lot when it comes to keyboard shortcut. You can easily set up the exact key that you want. Try to check it out. Hope it will help you.
