    Hey guys,

    First post!

    I've had a Mac Mini for a couple months now, and while I'm not a crazy mac evangelist yet, I may be a convert...

    I'm running it on my 46" TV using a wireless mouse and keyboard from my previous media center, as well as the awesome Logitech touchmouse. One thing that's been killing me though is that when using the Logitech standard pattern keyboard, I get a BONK! *you suck* noise every time I try to cut and paste (CTL+V, CTL+C, CTL+X, highlighting).

    I actually just messed up keying that last sentence!!!

    Is there a simple way to map the keys back to normal, so it's not looking for "Open Apple + CMD + F6" or some ridiculous nonsense just to cut and paste?

    Thanks!

    Well you could use Command instead of Control or you could open System Preferences, go to Keyboard & Mouse, go to the Keyboard tab and click on Modifier Keys on the bottom left and switch the Command and Control to get the Windowz keyboard kind.

    I would be interested in this, I always wondered about getting shortcuts to work on non mac keyboards. I cant imagine using a mac without an apple keyboard, more for spotlight than anything else.

    I believe that the Windows logo key defaults to the Command key when hooked up to a Mac.
