Is it possible to dedicate buttons on your laptop to say with the push of it your name and address come up or Email addresses etc so it saves repeatedly typing common things ?
My laptop is a hp pavilion zd7000 series. It has a fn button that shifts buttons to other functions like www., sleep mode etc..

If you have Word installed on your computer this can be done using the AutoText feature. Things like Name and address, signatures and even whole paragraphs of text can be entered using a key combination.

e-mail addresses can be remembered also so that as you type the first few digits the options come up.

My keyboard offers some custom options.

Try Control Panel... Keyboard, and see if the "Key Settings" tab exists, and offers any joy. That'll give universal control in all apps. Taff™ is certainly correct as to WQord.

No, it does not say any thing about 'Key settings and I don't want it for Word docs, just general on the key board to save me typing it all out in forms on the net etc.

I know nothing about it though. It does look exactly like the answer you want... maybe!

Because this thread is marked as resolved I suggest you start another one with a suitable Subject. I`ll look out for it but I`m sure there are others who will get to you first.

By the way - it helps if you mention (In this thread) what solution solved your problem!
