  • None of these answer the question step-by-step. I want to program the F16 key to function as a TAB key because when entering data into databases, or using forms online, tabs are used to move to the next field.

    YES, I can reach back to the regular keyboard to use the standard TAB key there, but that requires extra motion that works counter to productivity when entering a lot of numbers into successive fields. By default the F16 key is not functional, so I'd like to use it. Given that my hand is already on the numeric pad, using the F16 for a TAB seems like a natural.

    Unfortunately, I have not yet discovered how to assign TAB to that key. The directions I've seen so far do not do that.
