I don't have the problem with Word, naveen143225 does.
Anyone have any idea about how to allocate a task like CD Eject to an as yet unassigned key on my keyboard, that neither Keyboard Test, keytweak, Sharpkeys, nor MS Keyboard Layout tool can help with?

@TomHR, you can't make a shortcut with the keyboard to open the drive. Now, you can make an icon on the desktop where you can double click it and the drive opens.
If that's OK with you I'll show you how to do that?

But it IS a working, connected key, as it operates as f5 when the Fn key is held down, so the keyboard driver must be seeing the keypress.
a) the key currently does nothing if pressed without holding down Fn, and
b) it is next to other keys which also are funtion keys when the Fn key is held down, but have multimedia functions when they're pressed without holding the Fn key down,
I would really like to be able to just press that key (without Fn held down) and have it open the CD tray.
