HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Sure there are a number of free utilities that will do it.

Personally, I bought a fancy keyboard that has that function built in....

This is for my job, and my employer doesn't allow anything to be installed on the computer. Would getting a different keyboard involve installing anything? Or would I be able to plug it in a use it?

Damn, unfortunately the keyboard installs a macro recorder...
You can try this:

  1. Open the Keyboard item in Control Panel.
    • In Windows 7 or in Windows Vista, click Start
      Collapse this imageExpand this image
      the Start button
      , type keyboard in the Start Search box, and then click Keyboard (or Microsoft Keyboard) in the Programs list.
    • In Windows XP and earlier versions of Windows, click Start, click Run, type Control keyboard, and then click OK.
  2. On the Key Settings tab, select the key that you want to change.
  3. To change the command or the program assignment, click Configure. To change or to assign a macro to the key, click Assign/Manage Macro.
  4. Select the appropriate options, and then follow the instructions.

Let me know if you run into any trouble...

Damn, that one also requires an installation of a software program, sorry about that...

There is nothing built in to let you make a macro, you would have to install a program like this:
