Control Panel, Keyboard, Key Settings tab or similar.

If it is a custom key on for example a logitech/belkin wireless keyboard and mouse you need to look for the manufacturers programme in your Start>All programs list. Open it up and search around for the Quick Launch key set up. Usually it will list them with the program it launches and in this case the "home page" it currently points to. Click "modify" and change it.

On mine for example When I double click a desktop screen icon it opens and logs me in to PC Advisor forum. My keyboard button opens up a completely different homepage and the useless (in my opinion) "Shopping" key which used to take me to Logitech`s Shopping portal has been redirected to a third favoutite of mine.
