    I recently purchased a set of a wireless keyboard and mouse. http://images.maplin.co.uk/full/a55hc.jpg As you can see, the keyboard has a lot of extra keys that on my Mac computer have no purpose. Is there an application or some method, of making those keys have a function, like open safari or bring my IM client to the front of my screen etc.

    Thank You! :D

    Sometimes the keyboard will come with drivers to install if it's made to work with Mac. I don't know of an application that will allow you to give those extra keys functions, though.

    I had some success remapping a Windows-style USB keyboard under 10.4 using Ukelele — that's definitely worth giving a go, assuming that ignoring the extra keys isn't hardwired into OS X somewhere further up.
